I like Wimbledon the Brand. It’s civilised, respectful and clean-cut. (Apart from the Aussie supporters who insist on spoiling it for everyone else.)
But the otherwise admirable Federer is complaining about the dress code – with encouragement from a mouthy Murican misfit with dayglo hair.
Look, Rog and whatever your name is, if you don’t like our rules, don’t play. You’re not muslims, are you?
Cinderella acquired her ticket to the ball some years ago, thanks to the innumeracy of the organisers far away in Brussels. She couldn’t, nay would never pay but her virginal charms were always enough. Why? Because the chairman of the committee really really needed friends from down there.
Even Cinders’ ugly siblings along the shores of the warm sea managed to pay, after a few lessons from the dance-masters.
The Hardup family had friends who lent Cinders cash all the time. But she squandered it on who-knows-what. Even Mother Goose chipped in.
Would our poor heroine be allowed to dance at all? Would she elope with Prince Putin? And would it all end in tears?
Watch the news every day for the next several weeks/months/years to find out.

Scotland plans to reduce the Royal funding. Is this the thin end of the monarchic wedge? Will regions destroy the Windsors by attrition? Will Andrew have to go by easyJet? Will the PoW have to iron a shirt and tie a shoelace? Is this the end of the world?
Contrary to expectations (sound familiar?) the Blue Block have won the Danish general election. Bye bye, Gucci Helle!
Fascinatingly, the electoral system has promoted the Danish People’s Party to be the Blues’ biggest component (think UKIP) but the new PM will be another Rasmussen from the Venstre Party. The right wing will however control policy!
Be careful what you wish for, all you British electoral reformers…, 😪
After nearly 6,000 posts maybe the Chariot has run out of things to say. I’m left with questions like: ‘Is Robinson a Swiss family name?’
But cherished colleagues are much cleverer. They know all the answers.
So it’s a shame you don’t share, eh? 😀
Look, every year about this time it’s almost Mayday which seems an appropriate occasion for checking who’s aboard and who’s over-board – if you get my drift….
So kindly signify below if you’ve joined the sinking rats or otherwise.

Another crude usage from Labour:
‘Debate me!’ quoth he, addressing the people’s favourite, Cameron, who’d refused to join in a tv head2head…,,,
What is he on?
The perennial mouth, warmonger Bliar seems hell-bent on digging an even deeper hole by alienating Labour voters and willynilly boosting the Tory vote!
Wallace aka Ed Milibrain hates him, and the rest of the policrowd ignore him.
