      But he hasn’t picked up this morning’s post pointing out that the coordinates in the NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) about the crane appear to give a position well inland at the Oval

        The Notam covers an area of radius 1 nautical mile of the co ordinates given. The map of Notams also appears to locate the centre almost exactly at the actual location of the crane on Nine Elms Lane. Please don’t make an issue if there is none.

    I’ll be making jokes when Thatch dies! Just forewarning you, so you don’t whine about how “sick” the jokes are, given the tendency to mock any death on these boards.

    WTF is a ‘socialite’? Seriously. A ‘society’ figure? A member of the elitist group of people who are seriously up themselves then?

      Not true. Unless you have it continually in the air, it’s far more cost effective to share with others by chartering as required.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
