Number One Son

He has zipped off to the land of the free or the USA as it is otherwise known, to make the final arrangements to marry and settle there. The rest of the family are to follow in a few days for 2 weeks of celebration in various guises, By the time we get back, the Tartan Tax Thief will be ruining the country (not a typo)!

The RAF suffer from political correctness this time

Some cretin at the MoD has decided that painting scantily clad young ladies on the nosecone of RAF aircraft, a practice that goes back to at least the Second World War, will cause offence amongst the female members of the Air Force. What a load of cobblers. I cannot imagine many women who are prepared to sign up for the armed forces are such wilting flowers.

Maybe the RAF should practice precision bombing a bit closer to home, say Whitehall for instance!!

England Rugby. Slightly better news

At least England won the Churchill Cup (a sort of cut-down World Cup for 2nd XVs) yesterday, in a fairly pleasing fashion. The main thing was that a lot of the players in the team are very young and should have a long England future ahead of them.

Trouble is, I do not expect that most of them will be up to speed in time to defend the World Cup later in the year.

England cave in again!

After watching the second Rugby international match against the Spingboks, I am once again left frustrated and angry. For the first hour England were very good and were even leading at half time.

Then someone noticed, "Hey guys, we are playing well and making a real game of this. We should not being doing that. Start playing like drains again, as we are supposed to!"

Still there were only 3 soft tries this time. South Africa were never going to lose, but the way England caved in in the second half to let them create another cricket score was pathetic!
