Now't wrong with the Daily Mail.

A good old fashioned right-wing newspaper.
Everything about the Daily Mail is wrong.
I agree with Goatherd.

Re: Strange old man dressed in WW1 army gear / dog named lob

Thanks for these posts - they cheer me up! Nice to see the reference to THK and falling asleep in class. He was still doing this 10 years later. Uncle Tom introduced me to The Lord of the Rings, reading from the chapter dealing with the trip through the mines of Moria. I can still hear his deep voic...

I see that you've mentioned this a couple of times. Can I ask what problems did Facebook cause for you?

Re: Jokes, please.....

Somehow the truth hurts, and this may be it. In the coming New Year, 2012, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day. This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

Re: Riots, London and Elsewhere

Also on the point of MPs expenses - you'll all be pleased to know that the expenses system has got so strict and bureaucratic I've been waiting for almost 5 months for £200 worth of train fares.
