    Non - Bad driving

    Right, this morning just about takes the biscuit. I'm at the Shah of Persia traffic lights in just up from Poole Hospital. Anyway, I barely jump the lights, in fact, they were hardly red at all. But you know how it is when you're doing fifty, you don't want to have to slam on the brakes do you...

    Non - Bad driving

    the middle lane is populated by folks dawdling along at 50 or less who never change lane and seem oblivious to all other vehicles. Strange. Anyone entering the country for the first time and driving up the M2 or M20 could gain the impression that driving in the middle lane is actually compulsory.

    Non - Bad driving

    I always thought it strange that there is one type of road in the UK where people drive on the right: motorways. The left lane is often empty while the right lane is crowded. Meanwhile, the middle lane is populated by folks dawdling along at 50 or less who never change lane and seem oblivious...

    Non - Brexit

    I hope that you don't get all the palaver that I had to put up with this morning travelling Dunkerque to Dover. I use that term because everything was for show and totally lacing any real purpose. Didn't even check the corona papers properly!

    Non - Pandemic

    There already is a “covid Id” just to enter the country. This involves no less than FOUR steps of proof required. This involves a cost of over a £100, two lots of running around amounting to a long morning and a couple more hours filling out forms on the internet. So may as well make the most...

    Quite right! Thanks for proofreading. Highlights the issue of changing your mind halfway through a sentence, but failing to alter the words accordingly.

    What you read is quite correct. The Full OED has this: gobbledygook orig. U.S. Also gobbledegook. [Prob. repr. a turkey-cock's gobble.] Official, professional, or pretentious verbiage or jargon. 1944 Amer. N. & Q. Apr. 9/1 Gobbledygook talk: Maury Maverick's name for the long high-sounding...

    Debt is debt. It is a deficit, minus money, arrears, in the red, a tab, on the slate [ad nauseam in dead parrot Monty Python style]. It's not a weird* concept. It represents money that is owed to someone and has to be repaid one day. Either* that or, when one day finally comes around, the...
