(pulls back braces...) 'alf a gate, is better than 'alf a stile, is better than nooonne.

I am looking for work in the theatre. ...what do you think?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

A "gate" is the number of animals you can feed on an acre of common land to which you hold commoners rights. However the size of the gate varies dependant on the quality of land and what the commoners committee agree.It is also increasingly affected by environmental and ecological concerns.

 

In my case I can graze 2 ewes with lambs at foot per gate, therefore 2.5 gates allow me to graze 5 ewes and up to 10 lambs on common land to which I have the rights to graze.

 

Edited: because it didn't make sense to me either

To be honest, to most of us that went without saying......

I read it and immediately calculated the number of lamb shanks that it could provide.

I was about to make a borderline racist comment about your lineage and then decided that I would not.

 

But, if you like, you can imagine that I did anyway.

I've asked for the mods to be lenient with your punishment.

Today's papers are full of a story about a bloke that's just become a pensioner and has never held down a job.
This guy is so lazy he didn't even father his own children.

Prince Edward?

 

Edit: It's Charlie Windsor isn't it.  I'm on tour, with my band, and it didn't make the news over here.  You need to move on from this obsession about his ex being somewhat loose.  You've no proof, other than the obvious physical similarities.

Hope they give him a clock or gold watch for long service.

I wonder what he will do with all his free time now?

Erm, whoooosh?

 

Benefit fraud is tiny, and compared to other drains on the public purse effectively negligible.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

You haven't spent that long in the sticks or your freezer would be full of townies.
