She was talking very indiscreetly in a restaurant yesterday. A Green Party candidate happened to be at the next table. Here's his report...

It has a couple of sentences of preamble on the ethics of reporting it, then it's reported quotes of Truss putting the knife into various colleagues.

Walkers Crisps Brussels Sprouts flavour
at 15:34 24 Nov 2018

The latest in a long line of special edition flavours.

They actually taste remarkably like Brussels Sprouts. Whether or not you'll think that's a good thing will depend upon whether you like Sprouts or not.

But they are nowhere near displacing Walkers Max Strong Jalapeno and Beer flavour as my current go to crisp. I love them. So addictive.

...that bloke with all the UEFA badges who has managed lots of international teams but never been given a break in England.

He wanted to come here in the summer as his last move before becoming England manager.

He surely wouldn't have done worse.

What was his name?

I just don't understand this, coming from "the Party of Law and Order".

Is it just a symbolic way of showing that they can be awkward? Or are they genuinely embracing anything a Libertarian NRA Tea Party nutjob would vote for?

If Paul Lambert would come, would you want him to come in as our manager, with the imminent international break available to him to work with the squad?

Somebody lock Darren Bent in the media suite

And don't let him out until he has signed for us.

We need a greedy striker who knows where to be in the box and who gambles on being in the right place when the crosses come in.

And we can only sign free agents. He's not the player he was, but he does know how to make space in the box.

Campaigning for British Sign Language (BSL) to become a GCSE subject.

https://metro.co.uk/video/whats-daniel-fight-bsl-gcse-1742548/

Currently deaf children in deaf schools have lessons in BSL, but can't gain a qualification in it. They have to learn specialised BSL vocabulary in other subjects, but are then only assessed on the written English.

Bi-lingual children are, in the majority of cases, able to take GCSEs in their "mother-tongue" (quite rightly- languages are a higher level skill and it is appropriate to recognise those who have acquired them) but deaf children are currently unable to take a GCSE in BSL.

Exam boards are willing to develop a curriculum and assessment, but the Government put a moratorium in place on new GCSEs to prevent further change and turmoil for teachers.

I hope he wins.

What might have been...

I said when he was injured during the run-in that Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury could cost Liverpool the Champions League and would hurt England in the World Cup.

He was in fantastic form last season, and I think his dribbling ability and his slide-rule passing into the path of attackers' runs could have made a real difference.

There are loads of "what ifs?" that we could dwell on this morning, my point is that England can immediately strengthen the team who reached a World Cup Semi Final.
