There are not really any negotiations going on. We’re simply waiting on a date, time and venue. As we have for several weeks. So far — not a sausage. https://twitter.com/markdistef/status/1 ... 9898083333 … (Politics Live, Guardian)

Different technique I delicately dribble the ball past the defenders and aim in the far corner,PF just blasts the ball and breaks the net.Both end in the same result.

Ah - sorry. Rather a fundamental misunderstanding on my part. Maybe I'm not a team player . . .

(Or maybe I'm just no good at sport.)

I once (some time ago) wrote into Top of the Pops to complain that they'd had Barry Manilow on. I was unimpressed by both the man and his music, and questioned their editorial merit.

They thanked me for my interest in their programme.

I am gladdened by the additional "(some time ago)",elsewise it is some seething resentment if it was a recent thing.

How come the clock's so adrift? I know it's been like it for ages but I thought I'd mention it. I did the necessary when the clocks went back (as, I imagine, did everyone else).

Beyond re-doing/checking and/or refresh I cannot provide any more advice beyond blaming the Tories.

"I'm not a Tory" says former Labour MP who urges people in Shipley to vote for barking mad right wing loon Philip Davies and has letter to voters urging them to vote Tory printed by *squints at the bottom of the letter* the Tory Party.

Kinda odd that there are lifelong Tories out there urging people not to vote for Boris and Austin urging people to vote for him!

Safe standing one of Labour's proposals, I stand at the back despite the stewards' regular"please sit downs",I rather get missed,not unrelated to minimal difference due to small stature.
