  8. I could be wrong but Bawjaws is taking credit for the invention of the electric car at the moment. The number of times he says "Ladies and Gentlemen" and enjoins the crowd to agree with him makes him look like a seaside entertainer from the 1970s. He is a real joke. An unfunny racist lying one.

    Yes, I blame The Apprentice. They all misuse it there.

    That's the correct grammar. Old school incorrect grammar was always 'me and...' as per Toast, above.
  15. Corbyn declares he’ll stay as PM for a full 5-year term if he wins the election. The irony is that declaration could well have lost him it. I could cry at how dire our future looks.

    Or “______ and I...”, surely? One of my old English teachers was really cunty about that.

    I'll confess to reading his "How to Read and Why" - almost 20 years old now and a book in which he shamelessly points out as he got older he thought life too short for substandard books! Not so much elitist as evangelical in his own secular way.

    Saddened that Milat didn’t make the DDP starting line? Not to worry, the role of the Australian backpacker murderer could be filled by Bradley John Murdoch, who’s being treated for cancer...
