At work today… Colleague: So what do you make of your new leader then? Me: Brilliant! He seems to be delivering the goods. I wanted him in charge years ago, but he was all tied up with the Croatian national team… hang on. You mean Jeremy Corbyn don’t you? I may not be the political […]

What a good evening it has been this evening. In the early evening Jayne and I watched Cop Out on DVD (v. amusing. Both enjoyed it, and it only cost three quid) then I listened to the end of the West Ham game on Radio Five Live Extra (One-nil to the Hammers) and rounded it […]

In all the excitement of the election I totally missed this event – Tony Carr’s testimonial.

It is New Year’s Eve so I am casting my mind back over the past twelve months.Â If you have a blog it is compulsory.Â I think its a tradition or an old charter or something.Â So looking back, the international year of the frog, or 2008 as it is better known, has been an […]
What a scary season it is in the Premier league this year.Â We are a third of the way through and for most ofthe teams it could go one way or another.Â This is not one of those years wherea gap has opened up at thebottom – not since Harry moved to Spurs anyway – […]

What a good week for Barack Obama: first he wins an election or something, apparently, which must have cheered him up a bit, but now he has the real prize – an invitation to visit Upton Park to watch West Ham.Â Some people have all the luck don’t they?
