Can someone explain why it matters?
Given Parliament got their law through ref asking for extention...does that not make the perogation a bit meaningless?

Has he got a popular nickname yet?
Wolfman? Woolfy? The Wolf?
|So did the a12 close last night?|

I heard the announcement, but the Manningtree road was flowing no issues.
Getting in was way busier.
Funny game, we only seem to be able to put 45 mins together atm. Get both halves as we did 2nd half, or 1st half v Sund & Ports and we'll be flying...

Eating cold pizza is small fry for most of us who lived as students...
So what's your worst TWTD? Most disgusting, did I really, was I that stupid...story.
Mine was after going football training, followed by a swift pint (that became half a dozen), later I picked up a Chinese on the way home. Sat down, starving, grabbed the metal tray thing and went for the "flip" onto the plate (Always found that strangely satisfying when done successfully) Sadly I missed the plate and managed to spill the Chinese into my stinking trainers instead. Chinese now closed, too p*ssed to drive elsewhere, no internet.
Tbf, I was very hungry as I'd been in the pub all night, had built up an appetite, and hadn't eaten for around 12 hours. Only remembered what I'd done when I put trainers on in the morning only to find bits of Chinese in the bottom.
Some of you reprobates must have done worse?

|An insiders take on Brexit|
at 08:09 9 Aug 2019
Had a catch up with a mate last night, whose current gig is at the home office.
Picked up the following opinions, not going to argue the toss, just relaying what I was told...
The plan is to focus on the backstop, knowing the EU wont materially budge. That means no deal (they want this) with the govt able to point the blame at EU intransigence.
They know this will likely mean an election (just before or after Oct 31) Either way, they are confident they would win an election (brave or stupid) and see this as the way to lance the Brexit Party and take Labour seats oop north.
They believe that by leaving with 'no deal' this will force the EU to give them a better exit and future deal as they will be desperate to get s good deal in place after we have left.
Mate (who thinks they are basicially mad) says there is a religiious like zeal, determination, focus on acheiving 'no deal' as they believe this is the best way to get best deal, and to hell with the consequences. He was clear they are not ready for 'No deal' as the level of preparations would be huge for it to be manageable.
**All the above is just one opinion, and I did point out that the last time we caught up, he was adamant BJ would never be PM as he was disliked by too many MPs, so he was well off the mark on tbat one...

Any inside tips on parking? Safe roads near by? Will be on the motorbike so ideally somewhere secure and/or with lampposts to chain to if street parking...
|Thx whoever posted about 13 minutes to the moon |
at 17:44 26 Jul 2019
Finished it yesterday, really facinating, informative, well put together.
For what it's worth, my twopenneth on the coverage. Was saddened to realise that the CBS anchor, Walter Cronkite is better known for his announcement of Kennedy's death over the coverage of the moon landings. That 1 man (or more) doing a bad thing can get more coverage than literally 1000s of others doing an amazing thing...
Yet literally 1000s did all help do an amazing thing. The final episodes brought that home and it really should be rememmbered, celebrated.
If you havent listened, give it a go. Think you'll enjoy it.
|Anyone else wish they'd tried harder at Latin?|
at 06:12 24 Jul 2019
What an indictment on the state of our politics when bumbling away in Latin is deemed more important than honesty, integrity or abilty.
I despair, I really do.
|Those high horse anti undertakers...|
at 22:26 9 Jul 2019
A1 bit by Alconbury. Car in outside lane (of 4) doing 60...
So ok to use lane 1 or 2 but not 3 to undertake, or still the dangerous act of a deathwish wrongun?
|I did some Benters like behaviour today|
at 15:29 5 Jul 2019
50 miles through the Essex lanes on 2 wheels with just my legs to help.
Bit whacked now but well chuffed with that :-) What you guys doing to look after yourselves?
