I sense that I have been a bit of a miserable b*****d recently so am channeling something/someone cheerier.

I see Nadine is showing a flair for cultural sensitivity.

Isn't it lucky Labour got rid of Corbyn and his Stalinist purge of the party.

The point is that this is now being widely noticed, because they (whoever "they" may actually be) are too incompetent to pull this off properly.

Maybe it's a good thing, that Hadley Freeman is hanging up her pen, at the Graun. This is what she thinks "raging" is

Visited somewhere called Prestbury today, for family reasons not through choice.

It was pretty enough, if a little twee, what stood out most were the Ferraris and the estate agents showing houses for 5 million quid.

The cheapest pint I bought was £4.90 and a pie in a local bakery cost...and I'm not making this up...£15.

For a cottage pie.

Not even a really big one, just a normal sized cottage pie.

And it wasn't even that nice.

Then when I went to leave none of the street lights were working on the way up to the railway station so without passing cars providing illumination I was walking in near total darkness for about half a mile. Someone needs to get on to the council about that.

I think Coronation Street's Annie Walker used to shop in Prestbury.
When she wasn't having an emergency lie down in a darkened room.

On reflection maybe it was Wilmslow she frequented.
They're both a bit Manchester pony-belt.

It's addressing people who are a bit more self-righteous. Got to try and get through to them. Also, it's a column in the Graun, they're not the most self-aware paper.

Fair enough. I suppose it's a bit: all missionary-types aspire to be agents of change, but not everyone aspiring to be an agent of change is a missionary-type.

I see Rosie Duffield is the new Luciana Berger, with just as baseless accusations. It's a fairly predictable response from the anti-trans movement, after the court win in Bell v Tavistock earlier this week.

Indeed, I mean I know Ronaldo's diving can be infuriating but that last one was a blatant penalty.

I do wonder how long the ridiculous charade of Fred being allowed to pretend he's a professional football player is going to continue.
