I did not tramp about London in the rain shoving unread leaflets through disinterested letter-boxes, one small atom in the maelstrom of activity that resulted in the despatch of the New Labour terror from office, in order to continue to be lectured by charities and government officials about the amount of alcohol I swallow. I'm sick of it – the lecturing, not the alcohol.

The health-industry corollary of the Labour nannying is a new medical priesthood, with its litany of anti-smoking, anti-drinking, pro-physical-jerking incantations.

Most excellent. So much so that I will nick it and post it elsewhere. ;)
I have always thought that the worst thing about drowning was having to call 'help!' You must look such a fool. It's put me against drowning.

At a meeting of an EU committee on agricultural policy a delegate from France was extolling the virtues of a particular practice adopted with great success by farmers in the north west of his country. He commended it to other nations, who he believed could also benefit from “la sagesse normande”.
 
He was then most disconcerted when his remarks were met by gales of laughter from the British delegation. Over their headphones they had just heard the interpreter inform them that the speaker had advised all present to follow the example of Norman Wisdom.
