  1. Out in Stockport for 40 minutes. I'd just gone into the first shop on my shopping list, and the whole street went down. None of the shops able to take money, except the chippy which still had some food on the hotplate and lots of coins in a bowl.
  2. "Ten years have passed since I broke my nose"...The Police, 'Message In A Bottle. "There's a bathroom on the right"...Creedence Clearwater Revival, 'Bad Moon Rising'.
  3. Another unlikely inventor...the character of Roger Walker (the ship's boy in ' Swallows and Amazons ' ) was based on Roger Altounyan, the young son of one of Arthur Ransome's friends. Roger later qualified as a doctor and developed the Intal Spinhaler for asthma sufferers. Oh, and Reg Presley, the late lead singer of The Troggs, patented a fog dispersal system for airports.
  4. I think Richard Tice mentioned just wiping out the interest on student debt, though it's possible I misheard him.
  5. Dave Brock of Hawkwind will be 78 this year, and still plays lead guitar. He looks pretty good still. His former bandmate Nik Turner is a year older, and looks and sounds 90+.Time to retire I think.
  6. Skin from Skunk Anansie has pointed out that her band headlined in...1999.

    In memorium

    What happened to Eric Pebble, and his unfeasibly large coloured fonts?
  8. Just signed...over 111,000 now.
  9. Trivia note..Angela was the granddaughter of Labour politician George Lansbury. Angela's daughter Dee Dee was a minor member of the Manson Family.
  10. Maybe Tommy should have called himself Aardvark Party and got to the top of the list. I've got the North West voting paper too. Looked up on Youtube the person at the top of the Brexit Party list, who I hadn't heard of before a few days ago..Claire Fox.A few speeches there (impassioned, good ones) and a long quiet interview. She has an interesting background..a lifelong left wing activist, the Director of the Academy Of Ideas, and a former member of the Revolutionary Communist Party. Have made a mental note of this in case some idiot tells me the Brexit Party is right wing!

    Tourists Fuckoff

    Er..no. Sleights. (I'm presuming it's a quiet village..I don't know the area at all.)
  12. Yes, the Brains was better than the Marstons. But as is customary with most of Home Bargains' random items, it sold out within a week and is no longer on the shelves. I should have bought more.
  13. As a true Dosbod skinflint, I shall be having a Marstons EPA later, £1-09p from that fine purveyor of completely random beer, Home Bargains. Last week I had the rather good Rev James beer from Brains brewery in Cardiff, which was 99p a bottle.
  14. Just noticed on my form that there was an anti-Brexit party called UKEUP, just above UKIP...hmm. How was that one allowed?!
  15. Just vinyl records here..though I may have a sealed pack of coasters somewhere which I bought from a charity shop.
