The whole scene is about "Brand Beckham" which surprisingly is worth many millions.

One half used to kick a ball about reasonably well but cannot string 6 words together to make a sentence, but has an eye for the ladies. The other half was an untalented singer who has admitted that when live, her mike was turned off because she couldn't sing, and she mimed with the other three. Every time she heard rumours of another affair she got pregnant again to keep him at home for another 2 years. They have 4 kids now

Apparently she runs a successful fashion business but it is well known that she employs professional designers, she just lends her name to it. Is she "using" her kids or setting them up in careers of their own?

Is it us that are stupid or them?

Legal or not that is really in poor taste.

Exactly the Council's point. But she is apparently eccentric and it was her way of getting back at her neighbours for blocking her extension plans.

Well the Council can appeal, or consider designating it a Conservation Area, then different laws apply. But the money makers are the lawyers everyone else loses.

Well, don't forget Dopey High Court judges as in this case. He hung onto a minute point of law to throw out the case, when it is patently clear to anyone that the woman is one sandwich short of a picnic, and a social nuisance. But given her double barrelled name she probably afforded good representation in court.

Everyone has a right to make a living, even ladies of the Street. Same as Lawyers really, both screw their clients. It's just that one is more pleasurable than the other :-))

Apparently there is a new school playground craze called Fidget Spinners.

Forget bottle-flipping and ditch your loom bands, there's a new craze sweeping school playgrounds. Fidget spinners were originally developed as a way for children with ADHD or autism to relieve stress. But in the last few weeks, these palm-sized toys have become the latest "must-have" for almost every school child in the country.
But the classic quote is from the Toy company founder justifying the toy who says

I think people in general are pretty stressed out right now by Brexit, the various elections, Donald Trump, Syria, North Korea....you name it. So, it is a good time to be selling something that allows an individual to fidget off some stress
Ok, so schoolkids are stressed out about Brexit, Trump, and the General Election are they? You couldn't make it up!! Where's my Stress Ball??

What is your biggest laugh of the week? here is mine :-))

The Chinese government is investing tens of billions of dollars as part of an ambitious economic plan to rebuild ports, roads and rail networks. The plan, which aims to expand trade links between Asia, Africa, Europe and beyond, was first unveiled in 2013. Mr Xi used his speech to assure Western diplomats that the plan, described as the new Silk Road, was not simply an attempt to promote Chinese influence globally.

How about this one?

Boys could be allowed to wear skirts at a north London private school if a plan for gender neutral uniforms comes in. Highgate School is considering mix-and-match outfits for pupils after head teachers said that growing numbers of children were questioning their gender.

Just what is wrong with that? Are you forgetting your own history? Here's a timely reminder boyo :-)



Edited to change image. Original proved the truth about kilt wearers :-) Just wondered what the Queen thought on seeing THAT image :-)

There is a complete difference between grown men joining a Highland regiment or other military force,knowing in advance what the traditional dress will be, and young boys being encouraged to explore their gender insecurities. What about the Greek and Roman soldiers as well? Only the insecure would find the subject smutty.

With your penchant for Internet research, I'm pretty sure you are aware of which image I referred to. However, in case you are not, just look for the image of a bunch of Jocks seated with the Queen dressed in blue sitting in the centre. Once you have found it, look at the soldier sitting to her right. No zooming in required. In fact very surprised it got published.

Well, what can one expect from the "smutty" English media :-)
