Norwich is now officially bigger than Ipswich
at 11:36 28 Jun 2022

The first results of the 2021 Census were released today and the big take from it, the thing that everybody across the country will have been looking for, is that Norwich has grown faster than Ipswich over the last decade and has bigger than Ipswich.

Ipswich grew from 133,384 people in 2011 to 139.700 in 2021
Norwich grew from 132,512 people in 2011 to 144,000 in 2021

Now for the big disclaimer.

That is just the population within the City and Borough boundaries, both places spill over into the neighbouring authorities, Norwich more so than Ipswich, so in reality it has always been slightly the larger of the two places.

How about some blue themed tunes, careful though, anything too obvious could lead to a loss of face on TWTD and who would want that.

This is one of my favourite Blue Tunes

What happens if a batsman attempts a run but the non-striking player refuses to move and they both end up at the same end?

A genuine benefit of brexit

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jun/13/britain-rewilding-north-se

"The protection of Dogger Bank is that rare thing – a Brexit dividend. There are multiple ironies to it, though. The Dogger was theoretically protected a decade or so ago by the UK government under the EU habitats directive – written by the prime minister’s father, Stanley Johnson, when he was an EU official. Then nothing happened, because there is an unhelpful conflict in European law between nature conservation and the common fisheries policy that has yet to be resolved.

When the common fisheries policy ended in UK waters after Brexit, ministers from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs were – our charity had to remind them – obliged to enforce the nature laws we had inherited from Europe. There was no longer any conflict in law."

If Germany had scored from the breakaway
at 11:54 8 Jun 2022

after the ref had initially not given the penalty.

That would have been thrilling wouldn't it.

Imagine the mayhem. German fans and team thrilled about putting the game to bed. Ref going back to var, goal disallowed and England scoring the subsequent penalty.

I almost wish it had happened.

Why is England Vs Italy at Molineux?
at 09:11 8 Jun 2022

It's great that an England game is being played outside of London, as when Wembley was being built, but it is unlike the FA to move a money spinner away from the national stadium. Is it already booked up for something?

Saw that in a Daily Mail headline today.

It was from 1944.

I would say things don't change do they, but further down the front page there was a story about a women being convicted in a witch trial, and the DM didn't have any bikini shots of her.

Which is a bit of a change of tone. I wonder if that is because he doesnt think Turkey will let it happen anyway.

They are making an appearance now. First one of the year in this little patch of the Ipswich-Shotley-Sudbury Golden Triangle was perched on my neighbour's house this morning.

Just waiting for a cuckoo now, though the previously resident cuckoo went awol a few years back and I only catch the odd one passing through now.

I hope to see another benefit of Brexit
at 16:32 15 May 2022

Just put a driving licence renewal application. For those who have done this recently, do new driving licences come with a union jack on them instead of the EU flag as the old one does.

Here's hoping.

Yet another brexit win.

a goal up with five minutes to go
at 08:25 20 Apr 2022

Every team is this league would lump it into touch and find their keeper sitting on his @rse with a bit of a twinge. Or take an age to decide who was taking a throw in. Or move the ball from one side of the goal to the other for a goal kick.

Every team except us, we played ourselves into trouble instead.

We need to work on the dark arts a bit more.

Poor today
at 18:22 2 Apr 2022

No penetration whatsoever.

Most games we rely on balls whizzed across the box from out wide for out threat, but there was none of that today at all.

Lots of sloppy wayward passes, giving the ball away needlessly.

Cambridge looked much more up for it and they looked like they could score more wheraeas it looked like we could go all day long without seriously threatening.

Need to work hard on breaking down good solid defences.
