    You've got it

    1 6 15 20 15

    6 & 1 are the other numbers. But those, like me, who like going for doubles and trebles will know this answer

    Not nowadays, I only get a bit cheesed-off when my pocket tells me I might have been screwed in a race, must be a bad loser? <laugh> Oh, and the crazy/mad Trump & Co. people too. They are enough to upset St. Jude, the patron saint of lost causes (now where did I get that from? Will ask Ron to send the first correct answer an autographed T-Shirt. Stick and Bustino not eligible. <whistle>

    Watching daytime TV, the advertisers appear to have decided who to target:

    Willing money to the RNLI migrant trafficking service.
    Over 50s Funeral Plans (I wonder if Michael Parkinson had one. Does his successor Carol Vorderman?).
    Over 50s Life Cover.
    Equity release for home owners over 50.
    Hair colourings (with 100% grey cover) where all the women look under 40 (with 0% grey to cover).
    Electric cars that run on petrol to charge the batteries.
    Back pain relief gel for people with motorbikes and sidecars.​


    No adverts for security alarm and camera systems as, obviously, anyone watching daytime TV will scare off the burglars that the police will not want to prosecute anyway.

    No, but hopefully he’s blown an even bigger rift in his own party.

    What on earth is all this crap about affordability checks? What planet are these twats from? Seems to me that any group that is set up to review anything to do with racing is completely clueless and deluded

    Good grief! Haven't watched the whole video clip, but all the jokers the police were doing their best to apprehend in a proper and civilised manner, should be in a mental institution. For example, that shoplifter black girl was a complete maniac. Had to laugh at that 'hit-and-run' old guy who drove off after he whacked another car (luckily, the lady victim took photos of his licence plate). His remark about his son being an FBI agent was quite hilarious. Altogether, an incredible video clip from You Tube. Thanks for putting it up.

    The World continues to turn into a bizarre version of the one I was born into. For an old fashioned Liberal like me the vision of a 29 year old man (it) being refused cigarettes at a government tobacco shop, while a 30 year old man sneakily offers to buy him some is abhorrent.
    I hate smoking with a vengeance, have never smoked (well one drag on a woodbine once) so I have welcomed the removal of smokers from enclosed places like pubs and restaurants, but to ban cigarettes is a step too far. You can't ban them, they will just become illegal.
    We're allowed to choose and I stand up for those freedoms. Politicians seek to bring in the nanny state every day.

    Explosion: “Russia is erased from the world map”
    There was an explosion in front of the building, and a shrapnel removed Russia from a wooden world map hanging on the wall, while all other countries remained unscathed.”

    “Politicians seek to bring in the nanny state everyday..
    That’s why I don’t respect them any more.
    Our society has become the extreme antithesis of communism- and both extremes are bad.
    Our nanny state embraces a great weakness in its openness that allows citizens to do whatever they want, irrespective of the rights and freedoms of others.
    As Rousseau so aptly put it, democracy should be based on the general and majority will of its people.
    Successive UK governments not only pander continuously to minorities but also ram it down your throat at every opportunity.
    Add to that a total inaction in the face of important matters and a debasement of the values upon which our society was founded.
    The result is we have a society that’s going only one way- downhill!

    Good to see Jean-Jacques quoted on the Racing site. As Simon Sharma said when people read his book, the Social Contract (bloody Harold wasn't very original), 'the French started chopping peoples heads off and the British started thinking of improving everyone's lot (by not very much some might say)'. The will of the majority can be very variable.

    Do most viewers of “GB News” and “Talk TV” live in South Wales and Cambridgeshire?

    The advertisers tell you to sell your gold in Swansea, Cardiff and Llanelli. If you are a blonde woman you will exclaim “wow” when they hand you the readies.

    So now you can go and buy a car in Bury St Edmonds.

    If your gold was really valuable then you can spend the rest of your money on a Greek holiday – they fly to loads of places via Athens. If your gold was not so valuable then you can just play bingo online – it’s a 200 year British tradition like barbeques in the rain. <laugh>
