    I hope I'm wrong, but I can't see it happening. My bet is we'll buy 'off the peg' as we have in the past. - Look at the Nimrod fiasco, and if you want to go further back, take a look at TSR2.

    I was walking the dog and felt some rain. "Oh b*gger" I thought, "I'm going to get wet." But that was literally it, just a couple of spots.

    It's a lot of money. Well done to them.

    I once watched a dragon boat team preparing: it was at the junction of the Ashby and Coventry canals. - They sank. I can't remember when I laughed so much.

    I would think they did Lex. After the war things were pretty chaotic and there was still a thriving black-market. I'd guess that a few 'in the know' would have sold them on if they could. Maybe this...

    I've read several Masonic books in the past. I have to say that the content varies wildly. In truth, I like the conspiracy ones, many are quite amusing.

    I saw Redwood and another MP on TV today. They both said roughly the same thing. Stop all negotiations now and tell the EU that we're leaving on WTO terms and will pay up only our legal obligations....

    We stopped in today, it was far too hot to take the dog anywhere. Mrs R is doing a Beef salad tonight, but we won't eat until later when it's cooled a bit.
