We are the grandchildren of apes, not angels
Following on from my previous example of nominative determination (the Minister in charge of our crumbling, money-starved local government is called James BROKENSHIRE), I could not resist a sly smile at reading that the author of yesterday's report that to some extent, when addressing the issue of fuel poverty, suggested houses for poor people wouldn't be quite so freezing cold if they invested their generous benefit payments on home insulation (rather than booze, drugs and lottery tickets?) was Energy Minister Chris SKIDMORE.

I'd just queried an increase of around a third in my renewal premium! :) The little rascals.

Well-known theatre trousers-dropper Brian Rix entitled his autobiography "My Farce From My Elbow".

Wouldn't be a bad title for an Argyle fanzine, now I come to think of it.
