I knew it’d ‘appen… I just knew it! :open_mouth:
Just found this: theguardian.com/lifeandstyle … -loyalties
buried in Tim Dowling’s column, in yesterday’s Guardian:
theguardian.com/lifeandstyle … loose-ends It’s from March. 2nd. Must’ve missed it!
Will there be no end to this abominational trend!!! :open_mouth: :imp: :cry:
Damn the feckers t’ buggary!! :imp:

Our heroes all have feet of clay — some few,
I fear, are leaden creatures through and through.
Life’s noble aspirations come to naught
In markets where our souls are sold and bought.
Despite our fondest dreams at last we’ve found
It’s “goods” not “good” that make the world go round.
There’s now no spot for joy to light upon,
So what’s the substitute for tarragon?

Young Master Philip,
Ask the apothecary or grocer, for a gramme or two of, nogarrat. But a word of caution, young fella, use sparingly. In certain ethnic types, overuse can cause backwardness. :open_mouth:

Cher Fluff —

While I appreciate your concern, I must point out that it was not for me the question was posed, but for young Master Dowling of the Guardian. It was he who raised the issue, and to him, if you would be so kind, that your solution might better be addressed.

Mere d’Lucifer!!
Monsieur Philippe, mon brave! La chat est… how you say, une silly bitch? Oui… non? It reads and speaks avec son derrière.

One pub nearby has already undergone tescification (the Red Lion :frowning: by name). In the opposite direction, another, the former Railway Inn (built on a goods yard well over a century old), is also likely to be assimilated, destroying the long-standing independent newsagents next door in the process.

Is this progress?

Time to get measured for a KiWCS, mate, eh… wot d’y reckon?

Young Master Tim has no backbone, obviously:

Sad, so sad.

Tescosterone levels overriding principles. Not unheard of in journalism…

So it would seem Beastie… so it would seem.
