Worth having a chat with Nick Barber Functions in Felixstowe. They handle a lot of football memorabilia, and are generally happy to give an idea of your best options.

The war on waists....

A NL / DK approach to cycle infrastructure would transform our society. It won't happen because the road is so powerful.

Re weight. There's a simple solution. Offer anyone a free weigh-in at their GP surgery. Give them a target weight for 3 month's time. Cash prize of £50 for hitting target weight. Reset target, and weigh in 3 month's time (etc). For avoidance of doubt, target weight could be exactly the same (so skinny Herberts aren't left out).

Anyone off to (Or in Spain?)

I was assuming someone sent an email with the quarantine requirement as a wind-up for Shapps, but it went viral.

Only the UK govt can be so incompetent as to have to quarantine their own Transport Secretary!!! Bet he's wishing he could adopt a nice safe alter ego, to be able to avoid the 14 days. Oh.

Russia report
at 09:06 22 Jul 2020

Spot on. The Russia-funded Tory Party got the referendum result they wanted, so of course they are not going to investigate how their Russian friends might have helped. They already know, and they don't want us to know.

If Johnson had got his way and Grayling had led the Committee, I expect the dog would have eaten the report before it was (belatedly) published.

Favourite kitchen utensils?
at 14:07 17 Jul 2020

I love the garlic crusher that works without having to feel the garlic first.

And a long-handled teaspoon, for getting the last of the mango chutney out of the jar easily.

then there's the left-handed corkscrew, which is a load of fun to get someone to try. The puzzled look when they claim it must be broken, but they can't possibly imagine why! Then I pick it up, open the bottle easily of course, and only explain a few mins later!!!

No V shaped recovery. In UK, there will massive fallout in the hospitality sector - restaurants of all grades, pubs, cafes, theatres and cinemas, football clubs, hotels and conferencing. Plus shops in any area where offices remain empty, office suppliers, security / catering / cleaners. Manufacturing will pick up quickly, provided demand is there for the product, but any business dependent on import / export has another big problem on its way once we crash out of the EU. Add to that the problems for commercial landlords with rents not being paid, councils who have lost parking revenues (and face fall in business rate receipts). It adds up to one heck of a lot.

I am happy to see Wycombe go up. Oxford is a far better away trip, great choice of pubs for a start...

I’m resentful about Wycombe going up so can only imagine what those who got

Poor old Peterborough! Still, I am sure they'll take it in good grace, showing all their usual class and manners.

19 players too old for the U18s and not with a squad number
at 13:22 13 Jul 2020

Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane took years before they established themselves. Certainly it is becoming quite common for players not to be first teamers until their early 20s now.

How much trust do you have?
at 09:11 10 Jul 2020

My trust is at an all-time low. I have really been boosted by the contributions to this thread, as I realise it isn't just me that feels that way. Private Eye remains my choice source for insight into various activities the powerful get up to that I'd prefer to ignore, but feel I shouldnt. So often, their stories and campaigns become news only some years later, such as the Post Office non-existent fraud scandal that ruined so many lives.

When I hear people say stuff like " it must be true, I read it on FB" (most recently, last week, about 5G and CV), I despair.

So that's the end of the Cobbold connection then (n/t)

Tomorrow is the first day in our near-142 year history that there is no Cobbold involvement. It is a sad day indeed.

How’s everyone doing?

Gym closing could have been bad news for me, but my trainer switched to Zoom PT (cyberbullying, as a friend puts it). So I have been doing 3x sessions a week at a fraction of gym PT cost. Now I'm away on holiday but still doing a July challenge of push-ups, sit-ups, squats and plank-shoulder-taps. I'm still a boozy, overweight type, but am now a slightly fitter, slightly stronger, much happier boozy, overweight type.

Left wing, conservative. I'm right wing on economics but left wing on most social stuff. So have no party I can easily choose to vote for!

So Boris thinks that not enough care homes followed the guidance.
at 08:46 7 Jul 2020

My mum is in a care home oop north. They closed to all visitors in early March, weeks before govt told care homes to do so. They got lucky - one inmate was sent back from hospital with flu - type symptoms, not tested, and either didn't have Covid or the way they isolated him worked. Staff went into weekly sleep-in rotas to minimise external contact Even post was held 72 hours before being delivered. Testing was not available to staff until May, and even then it needed a 60-mile round trip by car. PPE was near-zero for the first month as management were unable to source much - it was fine by May, as they found people able to supply (obvs, zero from UK govt).
Johnson is at best a disgusting liar. Given other similar countries have managed their care home fatalities to a tiny fraction of UK's, his govt is at best negligent. There are other words for it.

My mum remains well.
