    This unusually capable and talented government has the problem that a sizeable proportion of its backbenches are sceptical of lockdown measures - and with an official opposition that will generally...

    Come to think of it my most valuable quartz watch (a midsize 007 SMP) is one of my least accurate. But I've had it since 1998 and I think that's possibly a consequence of its age.

    It is interesting. Quartz watches can also defy expectations; for example I have Casios costing less than 20 that are substantially more accurate than both my solar Seikos with RRP in excess of 200.

    Ravenstone - about 3.5 miles to the SE of Ashby. I've haven't been to a pub there since the pandemic started but we'll no doubt do that soon. I like Ashby; love the old-fashioned high street. Nice to...

    Sorry, but I find this to be a nonsensical comment. What sort of negative "judgement" could you apply to someone wearing a mask? What possible harm does it do? I wear one primarily so that more...

    I don't think so. The text in the first example would have been pulled from Wikipedia, and I doubt he entered it himself.

    I'll still be wearing a face covering in shops and similar indoor spaces for the time being. I went round Tesco at Ashby on Thursday evening and was pleasantly surprised to see that about 75% of...

    The oversized lugs just don't suit a conventional strap IMO. But the standard configuration looks bizarre. Bit of a no-win situation.

    I still have A Farewell To Kings tour and Tour of the Hemispheres t shirts, in the loft I think. They shrank in the wash to the point where only a small child could get into them, so I only ever got...

    I removed rust from a key I'd lost in the garden for two years using a solution of white vinegar, lemon juice and salt. Worked surprisingly well.

    I think so. Doubt it would have left the factory like that.
