  1. Don't be surprised if you find yourself in an orange jumpsuit
  2. Another favourite and possibly the only mention of Rugby in a top ten hit The Jam All that Rugby puts hairs on your chest what chance have you got against a tie and a crest
  3. On the subject of the Clash They got Burton suits, ha, you think it's funnyTurning rebellion into money
  4. wish that I could be like him
  5. A lot of the UKIP vote is likely to evaporate, one thing the Kippers did well was tapping into a segment of society that wouldn't ordinarily vote and without them around to hoover up the little englanders they may not actually turn out.
  6. and... You should never hold a candle if you don't know where it's beenThe jackpot is in the handle on a normal fruit machine although I always preferred What a Waste Because I chose to play the fool in a six piece band First night nerves every one night stand I should be glad to be so inclined What a waste what a waste Rock'n'Roll don't mind
  7. The difference being Ian Dury was a genuine lyrical genius who wrote musical poetry, Lorde is just looking for something that rhymes.
  8. I know it's not really indicative but in the County Elections for Wiltshire last time they had 53 candidates, this time around they have 8
  9. St George's Day? There's a joke in there somewhere I'm sure.

  12. It is all so so true. My 1098 has something like 160bhp available in it's standard form and it is 10 year old technology, the new 1299 Panigale over 200. I can break the national speed limit in second gear (by enough to get banned on a single lane road) and have no clue what the top speed is, the internet says 173mph. Even on the Autobahn I did not feel the urge to give it the entire bean. I describe it as similar to my cat, very pretty to look at but if you take liberties it will have blood from you. But I do love it.
  13. Started a long time ago on a CB125 Then after years of messing around with 125s got a licence in 1990 and moved on to an XJ750 Which was replaced after a few years with a GPZ550 which I parted company from on the A31 at a reasonable pace, writing it off. This and new parenthood (and a speeding ban at 125mph on a borrowed VFR 750) kept me off bikes for a while. 15 years later I came back with a Triumph T595...... This one in fact which lasted until the repair bills were more than the value of the bike and it was replaced with this and then on my 50th birthday I replaced it with this which I still have. I also have a 1980 Honda Superdream that is (supposed to be) getting restored to original condition.
  14. My memory has just been sold
