    Everythin' Priti "Glottal Stop" Patel does and now everythin' she says - especially the gerund form of verbs. FFS you're supposed to be a minister of the Crown.

    Age has finally caught up with Lineker and badly, I don’t think that goatee and specs help.

    Although she has mastered some forms of the gerund if reports are to be believed.

    Easter eggs. When I was a lad, the thing that came with the egg, could be chocolate buttons, maybe a tray of chocs, was always to be found in the egg. Its secrets, however paltry, had to be revealed. There was suspense.

    Nowadays the thing is always simply slung in the box as if to say ‘here’s your ******* chocolates you ****’.

    I’m in my fifties by the way.

    I liked him until as recently as WC 2018, but he seems a bit stale and washed-up now, like Carol Vorderman was a while back. Surely there must be quite a few just as if not more articulate ex-footballers to choose from for his successor?

    I'd buy that egg if it had that on the box.

    Marketing genius, isn't it?

    I suspect we can't have the thing inside the egg, because it would place packaging inside food, possibly introducing contaminants.

    Boo! Boo food standards keeping us safe! Now we are out of the EU we should be able to put a packet of fags inside one if we want to.

    Good point. Probably cheaper to leave it outside.

    Won’t someone think of the (50+ year old) children?

    I think his contract is so good as to make him unremovable,from what I have been told.
    STILL the LTA online DBS check!
    I've given up trying to book on tutor training as the link doesn't work and despite asking just for the dates I've been told "it's in the link" ! I know, it doesn't work!
    The LTA and their IT is a shambles.
    Millions,literally millions spent on it and so little of it works.
    I'm left with the option of doing a 'Digital Marketing' course for points for my accreditation. Oh the irony!

    For me one of the worst things about the past year has been the number of fat people that have decided to take up exercising in public. In particular the sight of big women puffing around the streets in ultra-tight, brightly coloured sports leggings with what my wife tells me is known as their ‘camel’s toe’ prominently on view, is not nice. It’s great that these people are trying to get fit but if they must wear such unflattering clothing to do it, please at least have the decency to wait until it gets dark so the rest of us don't have to look at you

    Ah yes the whether to wear lycra or not debate!
    It is a very unflattering fabric and most sporting apparel is made from it.
    There are numerous varieties available and it really doesn't suit anyone with even an ounce of excess body fat.
    This doesn't prevent many many female tennis players,young, and middle aged from wearing the figure hugging type.You can buy items in a looser fit but few choose to.
    I'm afraid to say this can be transferred to many women and how they select their clothing.
    Don't wear short skirts if you have quads like Hans Peter Briegel. Don't wear a low cut top or dress if you have a small bust.
    British women should go on a style course with French,Italian and Spanish ladies. Mind you so should lots of men!
    Dressing is an art and we're not very good at it on the whole in this country,not understated dressing.
    We can do inventive very well.

  17. Perhaps for both men and women it's a way of self shaming themselves into getting more exercise ? The equivalent of having to run in a clown outfit until they have a body like yours or mine.

    I also find it a shame that nobody can ride a bike anymore without suiting up in a full Lycra bodysuit and all the associated gear you’d need to tackle a stage at the TDF. I’ve taken to wearing a crash helmet and flame retardant suit when I nip to Tesco in my car now.

    The only other time I've seen quads like that was on 'Ingrid' who played for Austria in the 40s World Champs in Frankfurt.
    The woman was 45 and had the body of a male middleweight boxer.
    'Ingrid' must have rattled on court!
    As Clive James said of Arnie "a condom full of walnuts".

    Architects.

    Shittty tin and glass square shacks they throw up. Old buildings are much, much better. When historians in the future look for relics of life in the early 21st C, they'll be nothing left to find..

    Also, on a personal level, every architect I've ever known has been a complete winker.

    Don't bring up 1954 !

    Too many perfectly serviceable buildings are torn down for no other reason than to build a new one for the vanity of a city/town, developer or ego of an individual. Many could be repurposed while maintaining the facades and interior construction. Many modern buildings are not built with care or thought or appreciation of the environment around them or environmental concern. Which should be the case given how much it takes in the way of materials to build these structures. And as with many modenr gadgets they are not built to last a long time.

    I would disagree with Clive having had a look at many architects over the ages that there are fabulous buildings from all periods even in the present but those are quite rare. You only have to look at what is being built in Clarendon Road for example. And as for architects you get some who are pretty self centred or stubborn but they sometimes have to be in order to get what they want built. Most of the ones I have read about have been fascinating intelligent individuals though we are talking about the top echelon rather than your normal run of the mill type.

    Individuals, companies and councils still have too much latitude as well in what they can do to historic buildings. One example which caught my eye occurred in SF anda house designed by Richard Neutra. The current owner thought he could get away with destroying the property to build a larger house as the area is gentrified.

    That's 05.20 and about 23.45. The Germans thought it was some kind of coded message in WW2. I've always intended to learn what it all means but haven't got round to it yet

    Also why are so many people of late wearing shorts when (a) they're not jogging, cycling or going up a mountain (b) it's not been particularly warm (I'm pretty sure the warmest weather we've had this year has been back in February)? To wear shorts with socks and boots and a long-sleeved top in largely cool, grey and windy weather in March strikes me as a bit odd.

    I’m convinced this started with a trend amongst postmen some years ago. Some started wearing shorts to keep cool on their round but then, for some reason, extended it into winter. Others, often men old enough to know better, then took it up and it has become a craze.

    Mr HH was still wearing shorts when we had snow a while back. Nothing to do with any craze - he genuinely doesn’t feel the cold in his legs so walks the dogs in exactly the get up you describe above.
