Whitbread Trophy.. oh my word....
How on earth did I drink that sheeite when I was 17/18 yrs old....

 

I grew up in Newcastle.  S & N Exhibition or Scotch were the bywords for horrible evening, worse morning.

Watneys, Whitbread, Double Diamond: the horror... the horror...

 

Beer so bad, we couldn't even make fun of the Australians. ;)

 

But what memorable advertising tunes!

Broad sweeping people, up yours.  :tongue:

 

I had a motorhome for around 6/7 years until last year. 

 

I was driving at the 60mph speed limit on a country road a while back when a car came flying up behind me and started to overtake, not having seen the ambulance coming towards us with blue lights flashing. I put my right hand indicator on and he pulled back behind me just in time to avoid a major smash. Once the ambulance was past and the road clear, I put my left hand indicator on and he checked and then drove past, seemingly sheepishly waving a thank you as he did so.

 

Ok, maybe that was a smug git answer.

 

 

 

Touché.  But isn't this thread largely about getting a broad brush and daubing liberally?

 

Tbh, the unfathomable joy when a motorhome lets you past is probably worth the other 95% of pain in the backsideness.

From the "get go". "Can I get"? Typing and doing other stuff left handed because I've a broken elbow!

 

Last time I was home in the UK I was laughed at in my local shop for saying "please may I have....." 

 

In case I haven't ranted about it for a while may I propose motorhomes.

 

Gits.  30km/h on the bends, and miraculously 110km/h on the one bit of straight road when you can overtake 'em.  Round here is inundated with them for 10 months of the year.  Smug gits.  Contribute nowt to the local economy as they are packed to the ginnels with booze and food brought from home.  Tight gits.  Chemical lavatories.  Smelly gits.

 

Just gits.

Has Elima retired from Internationals ?

Yes he has.

 

Bousquet, after some encounters with the disciplinary committee, is starting to harness that aggression a little more constructively.  He is young, gets his nose through the line, and is putting a considerable number of games together now.
