    Will there be any roundabouts and U-turns?

    Although I think that sometimes the lockdown has been excessive I would prefer the movement is in one direction only so I'm happy for the changes to be slow.

    I admit that when I was young I'd have gone crazy
    but when I was in my 30s I lived in a bedsit and shared with 4 students who were 19/20 so I could have survived not having to go out to socialise.

    I always imagined it would be a strange pronunciation right enough.

    Here's another - Milngavie, pronounced Millguy.

    Increase in bum burglaries in Liverpool this makes total sense.

    I wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce a lot of places up your way though Wales wins this competition hands down.

    Rhyll?

    There was more than 50 odd characters though. I think it's due to its proximity to Liverpool.

    Just got an email to support London bus driver's to strike against their French owners if they don't get a big enough pay rise.


    1. The ****ing French should not be owning our transport infrastructure

    2. The spastic mayor has destroyed TFL by giving massive bonuses to lefty Unions then asked for the rest of the country to bail them out

    Kids are supposed to go back to school in a few weeks , lockdowns lifted so the bus drivers decide to go on strike now after months of empty buses and clear roads .

    It will be funny at the next general election
    I expect he will not stand again to avoid the "Independent Group" type lack of votes
