Re: TV/Streaming shows

I've just finished watching Normal People, which is available on iPlayer. Adapted from Sally Rooney's novel, it didn't seem altogether promising - a clichéd coming of age story featuring two attractive young people who shag a lot. But it's so much better than that: the story repeatedly plays with th...

Re: Printed cycling shorts

Force GB are the current Fridays supplier. I've just received a new jersey, and am really impressed with the fit and quality, which are a noticeable improvement on my old one. Downsides are cost (though it's made in the UK) and long lead time.

Re: Meanwhile...

From the photos it looked like he went in at the mouth of Bordeaux Quay at the top of the frame? Yes, it was much closer to Pero's bridge.

Re: Small lobbying gains or self delusion?

Go on then, find some better evidence for whatever it is you are arguing for. What is it, exactly, you're arguing for, by the way?
