GROWLER jnr is currently watching last Sundays episode again. Much chortlin' goin' on. lol:

It's a fantasy programme, and most of us love to fantasise with strong desires to misbehave. spider:

Downtrodden all week, at home and work, so it's nice to get away from reality and dream of how we'd like life to be.

So, to sum up Snoops, what you are saying is that we're all sadists at heart. The exception of course is Nick, who's a masochist. ;)

Yes ~  rubschin: Should we have a Whip-round for him?

As nasty a prospect as it is, I can see it happening. Alongside a flailing HMG trying to wrest more and more control over everything.
Not good.

 rubschin:

All rooms full at the moment ~ and not a minutes peace.

Actually we probably are well placed to weather the storm. Local Government is ineffective, Welsh Assembly Government (yes WAG as they like to call themselves) is a long way off and does act as a buffer between us and some of the excesses of Westminster. Snoopers from Revenue, Customs and Social Services (Or Job Centre Plus as they like to be known this week) are pretty distant as all local offices have been shut. This corner of Wales (Top Left Hand) is relatively crime free  and, unless you count the anti motoring taleban, the police are few and far between. Any enquiries about you or your activities will be relayed to you within minutes and you can always confuse the police, social services, job centre staff etc by demanding a translator as you wish to exercise your rights under the Welsh Language Act to have everything explained in both languages.
All in all we get pretty much left alone. whistle:

Oh ~ and I can cook.

How are you on toilet cleaning?

@ BM:  Yes... but no water in the village  rubschin:  Cleaning lady is back home to Lemesos at the end of next week. I might have to send her on a mission  eyes:  If you're lucky you might get 20% of my Christmas truffle output in the coming weeks!

@ Snoops: TBH if things were to get really nasty in Gotham City I think my first port of call would be sister's farm in Hants ~ the shippon's empty after the sale of the dairy herd  cry:
