Wales do not fear Argentina's scrum, claims Warren Gatland

In other news

"I do not understand the scrum", says Warren Gatland

Australia are stronger indeed - and this man coached the Lions forwards this year. It makes me weep, it truly does.

Susan Boyle

I'd be more impressed with her 100,000 sales if Guns hadn't sold 15m copies of Use Your Illusion.

And you know, if I weren't so bitter and cynical

Colts vs Pats

I haven't watched more than the first half of the first quarter, but there have already been two catches which caused my breath to just stop - the Garcon snatch in front of Bodden was just superb in terms of reaction time, and although I haven't seen it ruled in yet, the Reggie Wayne catch was something else

Brunch Break


1 - All day breakfast contains pork products
2 - All day breakfast contains vegetable portions
3 - All day breakfast comes with tea and toast (two things that could undermine my "all boys need for happiness is things that start with the letter B" theory)
4 - Brunch means you had a lie in (even if it was only five minutes more)
5 - Two meals a day seems better for you than one meal
6 - The morning is broken up nicely


I've been back from lunch for over an hour now... How is it still only one o clock?

Quick, it's a controversy

Ok, so I can't bring myself to give a rat's ass about the Sun's latest lunacy. "The one eyed prime minister misspelt my dead son's name".

Go bollocks.

The prime minister takes time out of his schedule doing nothing important besides, you know, running a political party and a country, to write hand written letters. I'm not sure who started this hand writing letters thing, but I suspect it was someone with no massive recession and a casualty toll that wasn't mounting. Don't get me wrong, I respect the sacrifice the soldiers make, but they also know what they're getting themselves into. It's a volunteer army, not a drafted corps anymore. We should respect the courage, but we shouldn't be totally surprised when, in a war, some of those brave men and women die.

The worst thing about this is, if I were an incoming politician, I'd have serious qualms about continuing with the practice of privately recognising the sacrifice. Especially when it turns you into a political punchline and punchbag in short order.

So yeah, well done Mrs James, or Janes, or whatever. You've disrespected the highest office in the land, undermined parliamentary political process, potentially removed the possibility for politicians to sincerely and privately recognise the bravery of soldiers without any ludicrous flag waving or patriotic nonsense.
