Same. I get that some people want the celebrity's 'journey' but if you want to watch top level dancing watch it where both partners are professionals. It's like the Premier League saying that half your squad has to be picked from your local Sunday morning teams.

Now there is a idea worth approaching Endemol with, they may buy it :)

Apparently, according to the great Mark King of the legendary band Level 42, time will come to an end in 20 thousand, million years.

I like the fact the lead author of this study is Alexander Farnsworth so is presumably related to him off Futurama.

Trying to speak to someone in the bank. The bank is full of elderly people who are clearly having a chat with the bank people rather than getting stuff done. I’ve been here for an hour already

I’ve got a flight at 5pm which at this rate I am going to miss.

We were due to play in the final for the 7 millionth time against Moan Utd Galaxy All Stars the day after the asteroid strikes...

Gatwick Airport. I know this isn't new or anything, but it's a shambles. We landed around midnight last night. Got off the plane at 1am, because "there were a lot of planes arriving at the same time" which is A. Impossible and B. Not true. We had to (they said) wait for stairs, but they were already there and attached, what we actually were waiting for is a bloke to stand on a corner making sure no one wanted to run under the wing. Hate the place.

Airports in UK are often exceptionally tatty and seem badly run. In my view, they often compare very poorly with most other places you are flying from, and they provide a really bad first impression of the UK. The agressive singage everywhere about people smuggling, illegal immigration, etc are also just downright nasty.

The companies running the airports (mostly MAG it seems), seem to be running them down to the bone. Facilities look really tired and run-down, especially Arrivals. The buildings are often cheap and poorly maintained facilities. Staff seem demoralized and badly trained and led.

Other than that, they are great.

Year before last landed at Gatwick then had to wait 2 hours for our cases due to staff shortages. Maybe if you paid baggage handlers a bit better it would be a job people might do.

My uncle was a baggage handler and he loved it. Paid well, short working hours but hard physical work which is why he stopped in the end.

The only bonus of sitting on the plane for so long was that our bags were there waiting for us.

We had a similar thing at Heathrow 4 years ago, we landed in an A380, there were no airbridges available, so they sent one bus. Yep, one bus, for an A380. Think is was 2 and half hours sitting on that one. But that time, as a special bonus, they lost our luggage too.

thought that was quite an interesting article about what could happen to the planet in the distant future. wouldnt say it was particularly scaremongering or sensationalist.

What gets me is the constant lies. The big one nowadays is to say they have found a maintenance problem and they have a crew working on it. This makes the passenger think they're really safety conscious and you would look silly if you kicked up a fuss.
The reality is they can't get enough staff to man the plane and they are desperately calling around to round up a few subs. To buy some time they announce that the super maintenance crew have just found another small issue that if not found could have been catastrophic. Finally minutes before rebellion you will find some bleary eyed, scruff in a uniform, hurriedly putting his tie on and jumping behind the pedals to get ready for lift off.
You do wonder how many of these fourth choice pilots were having a nice quiet pint on their day off when the dreaded call to action was received.

Probably not as they do not seem to have mentioned the lady who embezzled 30K from BLM donors around the time of the Colston statue protest.

Far more annoying was seeing "Lord" Archer on ITV London news saying that the reason the Tories won't win the next mayoral election is because they have been in power for 14 years and because of "the demographics". I always knew he was a dreadful lying cee but he's now added racism to his rap sheet (this may be well known but I try to ignore him).

Only surprise is that it wasn't written by the dog walker.

Most Wes Anderson films annoy me…
And I’m particularly gutted that I see via Netflix he has adapted one of my favourite Ronald Dahl short stories… The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. Great story. Grrr.. I should give it a go…but can’t face it…

Ridiculous speed limit changes on the A20

Reduced from 70 to 40 just past the Sidcup bypass, with average speed cameras coming

WTF, a 30mph reduction
