    Manchester derby - a great game

    Yeah, and look at what Man City and Liverpool have done in that time breaking the bank to get absolute world class defenders. And Tottenham.

    Jared Omara MP ..

    He has now announced he is on hiatus whilst he finds new premises. So don't bother writing to him or anything.

    The old Grindstone Crookes

    Looks like you got it bang on, if you read the Punchbowl thread there is an article about the Crookes acquisitions. Apparently Stancil are just a temporary tenant whilst the pub gets back on its feet and then TN will put more of their stamp on it.
  4. I disagree, and I speak from personal experiance. Ministers set the tone and direction of their departments, hence May brought in the "hostile environment" ethos to the Home Office, and austerity obsessed ministers have seen that villifying benefits claiments and the sick plays well in the Tory media. Thay have encouraged a culture of harrassing claiments - no doubt based on some targets for cutting costs.

    The "I am currently reading" thread

    I'm now well into The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths. This is a departure from her usual Ruth Galloway / Magician and Copper series'. A nice combination of Gothic horror story and modern murder mystery. Really enjoying it.

    Kommune - anyone been?

    Apparently they got kicked out by their landlord, who owns the gin place next door, so that the gin place could install a kitchen and do food. Unfortunately they've run out of money.

    I think The Lovers is one of the very few of his I haven't read. Was a bit dissappointed with The Woman in the Woods, seemed to meander towards a very unsatisfactory ending.

    Man U's racist fans...

    Well you weren't there were you....unless you were one of the two old Polish Barbers or the big fat racist having his hair done.
  9. Well if the Brexit Party and UKIP etc hate the EU so much maybe they should take a principled stance if elected and refuse to take their seats and accept their expenses.

    Man U's racist fans...

    I remember visiting Hengers in the 90's and hearing supposedly Wednesday fans discussing planting trees along the side of the pitch at Hillsborough so that Carlton Palmer(one of their best ever players) could swing on them. Inate racism.....hidden when the player is doing well and scoring goals, quick to surface when they have an off day. Currently being stoked by a myraid of politicians all over the globe.

    Spice in Sheffield.

    An article in today's Guardian about Sheffield's efforts to combat Spice addiction. It reports that efforts to tackle it seem to be working

    The Woman in the Woods by John Connolly. More supernatural goings on in Maine with arcane books, old gods and strange killers on the prowl.

    Just finished Our Game by John Le Carre. Engaging but then lost its way about two thirds through, as though his mind had drifted off and he just wanted to get it finished.
  15. I noticed this today with some chicken peices I shallow fried. I believe it's proteins leaking out. It is most noticable in processed chicken where the producer add a salt solution to the meat. Same happens with bacon.
