    Rugby World Cup 2019

    Feeling any guilt about being glad about Scotland's World Cup exit? Having just started the autobiography of Ian Robertson, the former former BBC radio rugby commentator, I can report that on the very 'first' page he relished the 2018 Calcutta Cup win against England. Then on page 2 he talks of...

    What book are you reading ...

    Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life: An autobiography by Eric Idle. A interesting and funny read that irks a little what with Idle persistently mentioning his "bright side" song throughout the books length.

    It's unfortunate but may have been brought about by sheer frustration because of the EU's determination not to give Britain a workable deal. Once a remainer and now a brexiteer I'm sure I've been called something worse than a cabbage (kraut) even here on Exeweb. In a former life I was called a...

    Regarding China Mike, I you're right to be concerned about China's muscle flexing but I think that affair is very much the American's concern them being the world's policeman. Of course we could supply naval support with frigates and destroyers to act as goalkeepers (sit down Pete) to protect...

    That is true Mike and I won't deny it. I have no problems whatsoever if you think it's fair to vilify Cummins, however, for my part I am simply pointing out that spin doctoring is old hat having started out with the Right Rev Tony Blair's government. You may recall Charlie Whelan who was Gordon...

    Mike, November 1991(27 years ago) Germany was half country with a wall down the middle - what are they gonna be like in another 27? It's bleeding Frightening!! As for No2 in the EU, that's a confidential squabble between the French and the Germans themselves as to whom will occupy that berth...

    Couldn't bring myself to punch Thornberry or Sourberry, but a custard pie the size of a dinner plate straight in the mush would be something to savour.

    I agree with you DB. I gleaned much about the man from his book called "The Insider" published in 2005 and which contained lots of scandalous gossip from about that time. Since much political gossip gets aired on Exeweb I keep it handy as it has loads of grubby facts and secrets that can be put...

    I'll always back British soldiers simply because I was one for 12 years. Although the mid 60's Malaysian/Indonesian confrontation was never as intense as Iraq or Afghanistan, it did have it's unpleasant moments. For my troubles, I only just missed out on a second campaign medal which means I...

    Hiram Boateng take a bow

    I think that the MK hierarchy and fans will be somewhat less forgiving than what he experienced here. If the results don't improve the murmurings could be joined by the sound of the blade rising to the top of the guillotine.
