    And the King of **** ups remains Jura. Famous Grouse is better than that **** now.
  2. Whisky

    Is that the Glenlivet Founder's Reserve? It's the no age mark one that they're making their entry level bottle. I got that on a deal in Sainsbury's a couple of months back - so clearly they're happy to see it discounted. Well worth it at the reduced price and really very decent indeed for an 'ageless' bottle.
  3. Nine Dead in Toronto

    Good god, man. There's research and then there's ... well, just listen out for the knock at the door ...
  4. Film 2018

    The Unlimited card here doesn't let you see the opening day peak showings of designated blockbusters - and I think theatre relays might also be excluded - but other than that: fill yer boots.
  5. Labour seem to be moderately concerned that they aren't going to get the tidal wave of support in London that it initially looked like they might. Apparently being (at best) lukewarm on the UK's EU residents and having a Lexit cadre of morons running their clique isn't playing quite as well in England's most obviously Remain and EU resident-home city. Difficulty being those folks probably won't vote Tory, still harbour a grudge against the Lib Dems so are likely to not vote at all.

    If you can stand to click through to Twitter and then read a thread, this seems to be quite interesting:

  8. St George’s Day

    It may say that on wiki as well but I got very confused when they started saying the French call them leopards anyway.
  9. St George’s Day

    Please do. It's a thoroughly impenetrable and hard to read article. Especially now I've hacked at it to make my point.
  10. St George’s Day

    Wiki says ... the three lions represent the Kingdom of England, the Duchy of Normandy and the Duchy of Aquitaine.
  11. Film 2018

    If you have Netflix you really should watch Annihilation. (My thoughts: https://jonsmalldon.wordpress.com/2018/03/12/film-review-annhilation/) And if all you have is Amazon Prime, go to Your Name. (My thoughts: (https://jonsmalldon.wordpress.com/2018/01/29/film-review-your-name/) Neither of my scribblings does either film justice. Both well worth watching.
  12. Our new position in the EU

    Literally every chance he has had over Brexit to either land a blow on the Tories or wave Brexit through he has, quickly and without blinking, backed the Tories. Can't see that changing.
  13. Our new position in the EU

    This is what I think will happen: May will make it a confidence vote. Several Tory MPs will take this as a cue that they are going to get nothing from here so what the heck. Their votes plus Labour and opposition would topple the government. But Labour abstain.
  14. Our new position in the EU

    The last thing I saw, prior to the swamping of today's news of a baby emerging in a maternity ward, was that the government were working on a compromise customs deal. Though how that could be agreed and in place by next month, who knows?
  15. Our new position in the EU

    Number 10 has already pulled back from that (unless they've gone forward again since).
