Ah, tres kind - and I see what you did there. Its all a welcome distraction at the mo, not to mention educational (see BFs soul patch thread) - trying to do my company accounts (my company being me) since I had to sack the accountant since I knew I couldn't afford his bill (for seemingly filling in a few numbers here and there, haha). Also getting distracted by references to all sorts of legislation I expect the accountant knows the meaning of.

I can assure you all that despite this thread Mr. Brian is actually fun at parties.
With the Force as his ally he did battle with the Dark Lord. And he showed the measure of a true Jedi at a place called "The Death Star" where hope for the Galaxy was reborn. May all who struggle against tyranny hold his memory in their hearts

The French had the right idea in the 18th century.

That is really funny - because they tried to sell it as a great big positive about leaving - there was an 'item' about it on the Jeremy Vine show and they had all these tossers on going 'its a disgrace' etc and then this french woman who was openly laughing and pointed out that it was the conservative government's own fault for flogging off the right to make them, becaus ethen it comes under european law and has to be put out to tender, whereas the french keep it in house so make their own. And if they'd just left it a couple of years. Whole thing's a complete fuck up.

And there only has to be one small family tragedy (dodgy salmon mousse anyone?) and its King Louis. Brill.

We still have an unelected second chamber of apparently zero consequence (the lords to you Mr B) and subsidised public (as in private - don't ask me about the nomenclature) education system that feeds the top universities who then feed the government/civil service. I think thats the rough view from the left anyways.


Just come across an example of what I mean by this in the news this morning.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44155130

This old bird was a deputy governor at the bank of england - which amongst other things sets interest rates and handles all our cash, and had to resign due to an oversight in which she failed to declare a potential conflict of interests - that her brother is high up in Barclays Bank. Now apart from how, when you've worked in the financial industry all your life you'd forget a thing like that........ A year later she's back as Chief Executive of Visa Europe (which is owned by the banks, one presumably being barclays).
Is she a working class upstart from the north country? Nope. Her dad is 3rd Viscount Hailsham, one of the remaining hereditary peers and also has a life peerage (not sure how this all works) sits in the Lords at 300 quid a day plus (or so the oapers say). Before that he was an MP for a while when the press fund out he had claimed 2000 quid in parliamentary expenses to 'clean the moat of his castle' - though after the event it was 'more complicated than that'. Anyways, who cares, his old man carked it and he got the peerage, and after the commons went to the Lords. Her mother is a baroness in her own right (economist and big business cheese), and her dad (i.e. gramps) was a conservative MP and Chief Secretary to the Treasury and Paymaster General. His dad before him was also an MP and all the lot went to private (or public as they call them here) and Oxford.

Oh and its the happy day tomorrow!!!

The title of this one is kind of appropriate. Better vocals than our Geddy.
