    I really wish people would realise

    that there is more than one accent in Britain. NO, WE DON'T ALL SOUND LIKE THE QUEEN!! For those reading this who aren't British, please please PLEASE look up the Welsh accent, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Liverpool, Newcastle and various other places. [Look up Vernon Kay or Johnny...

    I know that we've moved on from the

    politically incorrect days of the 1970's and 80's but there are a few things that I have to admit that I miss a little. Some of the humour of that time couldn't be performed today but it does make me laugh sometimes. Here's a couple from Les Dawson: I said to the chemist...

    I wish I had thought of this: Being British is

    about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer. Then on the way home grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab, to sit on a Swedish Sofa and watch USA shows on a Japanese TV, while being suspicious of anything foreign. Oh and only in Britain can you get a...

    Being British is about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgium beer.  Then traveling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese television.

    Saw this on another Social Media this morning

    and it made me smile. When British people say one thing, they often really mean the exact opposite! Any Brit will recognize themselves in this list. 1. 'I might join you later' — Translation: I'm not leaving the house today unless it's on fire. 2. 'Excuse me, sorry, is...

    A British icon left us recently.

    David Bowie changed attitudes in a time where racism, bigotry, sexism and discrimination were common place attitudes. I can't pretend to be a great fan of his music but as an artist he was one of the greats. What a fabulous contribution he made to the social fabric of our...

    So the government's advisers have recommended

    that the guidelines on the number of units of alcohol consumed by men in a week, should be reduced from 21 to 14. It's hard to argue against such sage advice, given the health and social problems that are associated with the misuse of the drug. However, I do wonder what will...

    More storms and bad weather.

    When extreme conditions occur can there be blame apportioned for the flooding that has taken place in certain parts of the country? It turns out that the government were warned about this by a report predicting these conditions. So, lots for Mr Cameron to think about. We only...

    Since I've Turned Forty

    Since I’ve turned forty. Lots of things have happened since I’ve turned forty. I have learned to accept that I am physically not perfect and that no one really is. Okay, so things have headed south but my smile hasn’t. No longer do I judge a book by it’s cover and what...

    Sir Philip Dilley the Environment Agency

    chairman has decided to "stand down", after holidaying in Barbados during the floods in December. I think this was the right thing to do in the circumstances and he should be given some credit for his resignation. But he was a little naive for a man with so much experience...
