    I'm not much of a reader - I dont know how people find the time!

    I'd probably read on the train if Suduko's hadn't been invented!

      I used to do that.

      But I haven't been on a train since the end of BR...
      Really?!! Because of your principles against privatisation?
      or did you just become posh and employ a driver around that time?

        What's an unseen public speaking competition?
        It means you walk up to the judge panel, they give you a handout, you walk on to the stage and have 1 minute to mentally read the material. The judges ring a bell, and then you speak to the morning assembly.
        Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

          Ok , thanks for that!
          The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

          But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

            Reminds me of the answer on one of those stupid teatime BBC quiz shows to a history question "How could I possibly know that ? I wasn't born then!"

            I wonder if you get bonus marks for that in GCSE history these days

                I used to speak it, but got peed off with being called a Southern Wooftah when I went back home to Yorkshire, so dropped it sharpish.
