    Spanish cycling tour

    My wife and I were greatly inconvenienced by the first day of the Spanish tour, starting in Galicia recently. How about letting motorists know in advance that they're likely to be delayed by a bunch of prima donnas poncing about on bikes? Signs of detours would help too. Who on earth can find...

    The Globe Pub, Leicester bans British soldiers for fear of upsetting "non-nationals"

    The Globe Pub, Leicester bans British soldiers for fear of upsetting "non-nationals" I have no idea if this is genuine or not (I have no idea if the Daily Bale is a parody or what), but if there is any truth in this at all, it's a total disgrace...

    Are British Rail trains better than ever?

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/15/nostalgia-british-rail-trains-better Personally, (in my admittedly rather limited experience of UK post-privatistion rail travel), I don't think so. I was interested to read that apprently 2/3 of the British public would like to see the...

  11. Blues player

    Just wondering if people thought that the Blues Player is worth the £40 ish a year? I won't be able to get to any games probably this year, but would still like to support the club. Basically, what are the best features in your opinion, and would you pay £40 for a years subscription?

    British Lions series win

    So the news and Sports channels are going into meltdown as they always do after any kind of tub-thumping victory. As an only occasional fan of egg running, I'm all over the kudos and looking around me for any Australians to rub it in with, but it does all seem a little over-the-top. To any of...
