Tour de Denmark

Just kidding.
It's Tour de France time for the next 3 weeks and it starts in Copenhagen.
Nope, me neither, but a welcome alternative to the tennis.

Dieselgate
at 15:50 23 Jun 2022

I see that VW is to compensate some 90,000 motorists in the UK who bought their diesel cars from VW. What is this compensation for? How are these motorists out of pocket? Is DVLA going to retrospectively charge each motorist because their road tax was underpaid? They were in the wrong category as obviously their engine kicked out a lot of pollution, well over the limit of the category they were placed in. If not, then they are being rewarded for polluting the planet. Us petrol heads aren't being compensated for abiding by the rules (although we pollute the planet too).
Anyone know.

A damn good thrashing
at 20:27 8 May 2022

So, according to the BBC Sports website football page...

Man City thrash Newcastle to go three clear at top (5-0)

Hammers thrash Norwich to boost european hopes (4-0)

Man City women thrash Reading to secure Champions league (4-0)

Yet... Brilliant Brighton demolish dreadful Man Utd (4-0)

For me, I think Man Utd deserved a damn good thrashing too.

Stumbled on this.
The Daily Excess has a unique slant on the local elections as they think Johnson was triumphant.

Dirty Leeds
at 10:31 27 Apr 2022

Eeeee, when I wus a lad, Leeds were known as 'dirty' Leeds as they kept kicking their opponents. With no subs back then, they figured that if the other side went down to 10 men they'd win the match. They usually achieved this within the first few minutes of a game as the ref was always reluctant to send anyone off for their first foul.
Fast forward to today and guess who's bottom of the Fair Play league?
It's Leeds, 486 fouls in 33 matches. 93 yellows.

The Football Gods have decided we can't have nice things.

I think it's time for pagan sacrifices.

We need to lift the curse that has befallen us 'cos the trajectory we are on could result in Steve Evans getting the managers job as he's the worst and we deserve no better.

Omicron
at 20:01 11 Dec 2021

Here's a blog from a doc I stumbled on a few months ago when I had Covid and wanted some facts and not opinions or government spin. The first vid I saw of his was brutal 'cos his interpretation of the facts had no sugar coating.
This vid is in the same tone but the message about Omicron is encouraging.
I wish this guy was my doctor.
Watch the first 90 seconds and you'll watch the whole thing.
Proper facts delivered concisely and with no fuss.

If you only have 30 secs then watch 4.40 onwards.

Billed as the best of the action from the weekends FA Cup matches.
If it's the 'best' action it begs the question wIll we be on it?
Perhaps the focus will be on plucky Barrow.

Ipswich Town, Manchester City or Liverpool.
Contestant admits he knows nothing about sport but thinks he knows this one and got it right.

Walkers Crisps

Shelves are suffering a shortage of crisps apparently.
Microchips are also in short supply.
Crisps are called chips in the US.
Maybe they're not producing 'crisps' 'cos they won't contain the microchips so the govt. can track you like they do with the vaccine.

Whose Line is it anyway?
at 21:56 13 Aug 2021

Welcome to the popular Improv show.

First up, I'd like you to respond to the defeat of Arsenal by Brentford in the guise of a TWTD Flouncer.

Get rid of the owner.
Sack the board
Sack the manager
Sack the coaches
Shoot the strikers
Shoot the midfield
Hang the defenders
String up the goalie
Nuke London
Kill everyone in the entire world

Good effort. I can only give you 6/10 as no-one flounces like a TWTD Flouncer.

What could possibly go wrong?
at 12:54 22 Jul 2021

From the BBC.

Business Secretary Kwasi Kwateng said the government was "concerned about instances of shortages".

"I don't want people to get the impression that every shelf in every supermarket is bare - that is not the case but we are certainly concerned about instances of shortages, we are looking at the supply chains of critical industries and we are reviewing that situation," he added.

I'm off to the shops with a 'You can take this toilet roll from my cold dead hands' attitude.
