        So, basically, the joke is that Ed M is bound and determined that his recess shall remain quiet and uneventful and nothing will shake him loose from this, as he works diligently behind the scenes, coming up with a plan for when Parliament resumes sitting. And in this way, he emulates IDS, the quiet determined man.

        Another leader who was never going to become Prime Minister– yeah? Is that where we’re going with this one?

        I confess, I’m probably giving this matter way too much more thought than it merits. And it’s keeping me awake in the small hours.

        No it was totally incorrect. If the local benefit scroungers won’t do the work what option do businesses have but to recruit those who are willing to work. Labour brought in the minimum wage. Obviously that is another of their policies that has failed if what Bryant has said is remotely accurate.

Businesses can afford huge salary increases for their senior staff every year; it’s high time they treated other staff in a similar way.

      Believe it or not riding two or three abreast is often the safest option. When a group cycles in line you often find cars only get part way down the line before suddenly having to pull in and squish a rider(s) against the kerb. So more often than not depending on road layout and traffic it’s best to ride abreast and not encourage overtaking when it’s not safe to do so.

      Before anyone says that motorists pay for the roads, this is not true, motorists pay vehicle excise duty.

      Before anyone says motorists have to take a test, this is true. Motorists can only use the roads under licence, while cyclists and horse riders use the roads (except Mways and designated ones) by right.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
