Cameron and Clegg are on a plane journey,when Cameron says
“You know, I could throw £1000 note out the widow rght now, and make someone very happy”
“Ah ha” says Cleggie “I could throw ten £100 notes out of the window right now and make ten people very happy”
Pilot turns to the co-pilot and says
“We could throw the two of them out the window right now and make thirty million people very happy”
Now I’ve heard it all! Andrew Windsor says he is “just a different kind of entrepreneur” – which being interpreted means he recycles public money for personal gain.
There is considerable doubt whether he has either the IQ or the staying power needed even to emulate his nursery-rhymed namesake, either on the ascent or the descent of the fabled hill.
He is a supporter of Norwich City Football Club.
But if my cherished reader is now ensnared by this revelation, there’s more!

Mrs Kinnock, the PM of Denmark (whom USA Today called ‘an unidentified official’!) demonstrates her appeal, while Mrs Obama seems not to be amused.
Auntie Beeb reports that Costa Coffee has banned a song from its outlets, by popular demand. It’s the unctuous Cliff’s ‘Mistletoe and Wine’.
So come on, cherished revellers, which songs would you ban from earshot during the holidays?
Here’s mine – even featuring the desecrable Savile:
Gooood consternoon aftable and my cherished reader. On instructions from Christina, whose creation this is, I went to The Bar whereupon Sergio eventually presented me with a package courtesy of the US Postal Service and Correios Portugal.
What a day! What a weekend! What an event! What a crowd! What an atmosphere!
On an emotionally charged weekend, how fitting was it for the very first International sporting event to be held on South African soil after the death of Nelson Mandela to be held in the stadium that bears his name?
16 teams, 45 games, an extravaganza of rugby if ever there was one!
It’s fair to say that we probably spent more time in the bar / lounge during the day on Saturday then in the stand (except of course when the Blitzbokke were playing) it is after all a day of preliminary group stages where the minnows get the chance to play against the big guns but today (Sunday) was the main event, and what an event it was.
The beauty of this format is that it splits into 4 competitions during the course of the final day (Shield, Bowl, Plate and Cup) with all teams having a chance of gaining a medal and silverware as late as the mid-afternoon!
We got the dream final we wanted. The Blitzbokke cruised through their quarter and semi finals as did the All (cough) (splutter) Blacks.
I’ve written elsewhere that I thought that the Ref had a couple of ‘Mandela moments’ during the final but who cares? Final score Blitzbokke 17 – AB’s 14 (3 tries to 2)
A win, a glorious end to a brilliant weekend Read more…
You’ll know the joke for which my title is the punchline. The Lone Ranger, surrounded by hordes of hostile Red Indians, turns to his trusty Native American companion and says -’Looks like we’re in trouble, Tonto.’
I will not play the Tonto card tonight. Read more…
Enough about your buns already!
When I first visited Vermont in 1981, my new boss who hailed from NY NY, introduced me to the bagel – and here it is, with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato and red onion. No wonder I kept going back for 12 years….
IT’S GO TIME!
We might just find the time to watch a bit of 7′s rugby while we’re there
What do you call this?
Allegedly the answers in Britain range across a wide spectrum: sandwich, roll, bap, batch, bun, barm-cake and of course buttie.
I prefer my bacon crisper (but not crispier) and I’m a batch man.
