  1. Bernard Trink, 89, night life columnist with the Bangkok Post for four decades. Ended every column with "And I don't give a hoot", which is probably as good an epitaph as any.
  2. It always interests me how often the line get rid of expansion club and spend the £75k on development in that area is now being trotted out. The likelihood of that ever happening is presently being shown in Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire
  3. Struggling to understand the concept of a nice afternoon drink in Romford. Only good pub in the centre from when I worked there has since been taken over by Greed Thing. Unless of course you were in the Gidea Park micropub, but certainly no TVs in there.
  4. That lad who headed the ball forward for Saints was tall. Harrison?
  5. Kaing Guev Eak better known as Comrade Duch, former chief jailer of the S-21 prison in Phnom Penh, from which only 14 detainees out of over 15,000 survived. I presume his Mother loved him
  6. Jerzy Szczakiel, first Polish speedway world champion
  7. I was always in two minds about the nuclear bombings until I visited Manila and was introduced to what was done by a few thousand Japanese hold outs in the Battle of Manila in 1945 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manila_massacre Their behavior on Okinawa was just as bad where the locals weren't seen as truly Japanese. Fighting up the mainland would have involved a horrendous loss of life.
  8. Enjoyed that game. Another cracker this weekend. Will be interesting to see if the Titans can begin to change their improved performances into wins
  9. Three fabulous games so far this round, but the last ten minutes of the Broncos Sharks game was particularly exciting. I was jumping around in my living room
  10. See two posts above! Otherwise Polish Speedway has already re-started and Swedish league is about to. British leagues are cancelled, but the speedway cup of nations is due to take place at Belle Vue in October
  11. Britain's Robert Lambert won both the fifth round of the European Speedway Championship at Torun and the competition itself
  12. On a positive front been out in Ipswich where I work at lunchtime and the mask wearing in shops seemed to be pretty close to 100% (even in Tescos Express on Norwich Road). A lot of people wearing them when walking around outside too. Incredible difference in attitude from my home town.
  13. A12. Perpetually full of idiots in high powered German cars. Even at the height of lockdown when I counted less then a dozen cars in 50 miles on it, a couple still managed to be of the wallywheels variety
  14. It seems to me to almost being run on a ###### for tat basis. My wife is flying in from Thailand on Sunday. Despite a very similar size of population and being the second country in the world to have a case, they have only had 58 deaths in total and not a single one in the last month. However, they are on the quarantine list whereas countries which have much higher infection rates are not.
