“A list of rules has been sent to Jacob Rees-Mogg’s staff asking them to stop using words such as “hopefully” and demanding that they use only imperial measurements and give all non-titled males the suffix Esq.”
Looking at the pic to the right of the inside of a new PC. What’s wrong I hear you ask?

Before we begin, I will say that I love OneDrive.
Towards the end of last year I was getting a little tired of Google Drive (Which is now called something else… Baby, I just dont’t care), so decided to give OneDrive another go.
