YBIG, we had an agreement. I do the thinking. You don't.

I might go for that myself. I'm reading a book about Chernobyl at the moment, and am going out for a tour at the end of the month so I've got a bit of a USSR horn on at the moment.

You can prepare yourself for the visit by visiting Granard

A far more suitable Queen(providing she still looks and talks as sexily). That never surprised me as much as her and Claudia being sisters. Blew my mind! The fact Claudia Winkleman gets paid for whatever it is she does is even more surprising.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Akala is Miss Dynamite’s brother. My mind was blown by that.

A plumber working in Rolf Harris's London home in 1974, lifted up floorboards, found a stash of indecent photographs of underage girls, got a fright, put them back and then only went to the police when Jimmy Savile died in 2012 and everything started to come out about him.

Do plumbers ever do the right thing?
