    Anyway, I've no idea who Kevin Kennedy is, nor do I want to know anything about that sad dump of a TV Show that is Corrie! PS the only real reason I have Liz Dawn on my team is that I really, really hate Corrie.

    Been missing your pithy contributions LFN, but sticking "Mandela" and "cunt" in the same argumentative point is fearless no nonsense of the highest order, or summat. Certainly would have been if he said a year ago... Aye, I did and always have. Mandela was not the lovely old uncle he was portrayed as, not much went on without his say so and plenty of people were murdered on his watch. You could well imagine, in an era now gone, him being told ( in the same way a young starlet is told to drop her long term boyfriend by the film studio) to drop Winnie like a sack of shit off of a quayside because it would damage his carefully cultivated image as South Africas Ghandi. Im not saying that the cause wasn't just or worth fighting for but I admit to being a cynical old twat, with good reason. Mandela wasn't the genius, the people that puppeteered him were. I even reckon the man had been dead for far longer than the official announcement but, then again, I do love a conspiracy. Loads of people were murdered on his watch (1994-99) it's South Africa for fuck's sake! Murder is a national sport! Unless of course you mean his "terroristic activities in the 1960s. His opponents were hardly paragons of virtue, were they? I mean, let's face it, you wouldn't invite them round for tea and cakes...

    These two statements don't seem to tally. I did have to look up JvdW but I presumed my total lack of interest in Rugby made that understandable. Even if you didn't know Wilko Johnson's name you would have heard of Dr Hook therefore I think his inclusion was more than justified combined with his high profile battle with cancer. Chris Woodhead is an odd one there have even been some UK comments on is he famous enough to be on here but we would happily inlcude Union Leaders and Churchmen so appointed high powered public officials should be fair game. To extend the Wilko analogy you may not know his name but you understand what Ofsted is right? If Steve of Canada ever does I have a little quiz for him. Ten thoroughly British types how many of them would you consider worthy of going on the list (ie you have heard of them) Sylvester McCoy David Steel Bill Morris John Craven Andy Partridge Deninis Skinner Patricia Routledge Tanni Grey-Thompson Nigel Lawson Kevin Kennedy Note even if you are not Steve of Canada you can comment on this list of Britishness.

    Ive always liked Tutu, didn't need to resort to necklacing to make a point like Mandela. He wont get the plaudits and the arse licking that Nelson did in death but, I reckon, he is a giant of a man where Mandela was a bit of a cunt. Mandela was South Africas Bobby Sands ( albeit without dying in jail) or summat.

    Hey! Since I've had a Swedish hit on my main team 2 years in a row, I'll compile a list of old Swedes that are somewhat notable. *Under construction* Egon Sundberg (February 27, 1911): The oldest living Swedish footballer. He played as a left winger in a team in the top league. However, he didn't get any caps in the national team. Ingeborg Sjöqvist (April 19, 1912): The oldest living Swedish athlete to have competed in the Olympics. She was a diver in the 1932 & 1936 editions. Ebbe Grimsland (June 11, 1915): Swedish musician, mainly as a violin and mandolin player. He's made more than 200 compositions. Don't know his current health status. Carl-Henrik Hermansson (December 14, 1917): Political leader for the then called Communist Party of Sweden. Praised Stalin at the time of his death, something he later regretted. His wife died in 2001. Don't know his current health status. Guje Lagerwall (January 13, 1918): Small-scale actress whose notability comes from the fact that she's the daughter of the famous movie director Victor Sjöström. Don't know her current health status, probably not even obitable anyways. Gunnel Vallquist (June 19, 1918): Author and translator who is a member of the Swedish Academy (you know, the ones who decide who wins the Nobel Prize in litterature). Don't know her current health status. Eva Henning (May 10, 1920): Actually born in United States, but appeared in many Swedish films in the 1940s and 1950s. They were mostly directed by her husband Hasse Ekman, a.k.a. one of the greatest Swedish directors of all time. Eva appearently lives in Norway nowadays. Barbro Hiort af Ornäs (August 28, 1921): Actress who won an award for "Best Actress" in the 1958 Cannes Film Festival. Ok, three other Swedes did as well, but only she and Bibi are still alive. Don't know her current health status. Olof Hanner (July 12 or December 7, 1922): Mathematician who created many formulas that I don't understand enough to explain here. Except that he helped develope the board game Go! Don't know his current health status. Ulf Grenander (July 23, 1923): Another highly accomplished mathematician. Here's a book he published just recently in 2012: http://www.amazon.co...t=relevancerank Not sure if he's living abroads at the moment.

    Christmas Elf & Safety Procedures The Rocking Song Little Jesus, sweetly sleep, do not stir; We will lend a coat of fur, We will rock you, rock you, rock you, We will rock you, rock you, rock you: Fur is no longer appropriate wear for small infants, both due to risk of allergy to animal fur, and for ethical reasons. Therefore faux fur, a nice cellular blanket or perhaps micro-fleece material should be considered a suitable alternative. Please note, only persons who have been subject to a Criminal Records Bureau check and have enhanced clearance will be permitted to rock baby Jesus. Persons must carry their CRB disclosure with them at all times and be prepared to provide three forms of identification before rocking commences. Jingle Bells Dashing through the snow In a one horse open sleigh O'er the fields we go Laughing all the way A risk assessment must be submitted before an open sleigh is considered safe for members of the public to travel on. The risk assessment must also consider whether it is appropriate to use only one horse for such a venture, particularly if passengers are of larger proportions. Please note, permission must be gained from landowners before entering their fields. To avoid offending those not participating in celebrations, we would request that laughter is moderate only and not loud enough to be considered a noise nuisance. While Shepherds Watched While shepherds watched Their flocks by night All seated on the ground The angel of the Lord came down And glory shone around The union of Shepherd's has complained that it breaches health and safety regulations to insist that shepherds watch their flocks without appropriate seating arrangements being provided, therefore benches, stools and orthopaedic chairs are now available. Shepherds have also requested that due to the inclement weather conditions at this time of year that they should watch their flocks via cctv cameras from centrally heated shepherd observation huts. Please note, the angel of the lord is reminded that before shining his / her glory all around she / he must ascertain that all shepherds have been issued with glasses capable of filtering out the harmful effects of UVA, UVB and Glory. Little Donkey Little donkey, little donkey on the dusty road Got to keep on plodding onwards with your precious load The RSPCA have issued strict guidelines with regard to how heavy a load that a donkey of small stature is permitted to carry, also included in the guidelines is guidance regarding how often to feed the donkey and how many rest breaks are required over a four hour plodding period. Please note that due to the increased risk of pollution from the dusty road, Mary and Joseph are required to wear face masks to prevent inhalation of any airborne particles. The donkey has expressed his discomfort at being labelled 'little' and would prefer just to be simply referred to as Mr. Donkey. To comment upon his height or lack thereof may be considered an infringement of his equine rights. We Three Kings We three kings of Orient are Bearing gifts we traverse afar Field and fountain, moor and mountain Following yonder star Whilst the gift of gold is still considered acceptable - as it may be redeemed at a later date through such organisations as 'cash for gold' etc, gifts of frankincense and myrrh are not appropriate due to the potential risk of oils and fragrances causing allergic reactions. A suggested gift alternative would be to make a donation to a worthy cause in the recipients name or perhaps give a gift voucher. We would not advise that the traversing kings rely on navigation by stars in order to reach their destinations and suggest the use of RAC routefinder or satellite navigation, which will provide the quickest route and advice regarding fuel consumption. Please note as per the guidelines from the RSPCA for Mr Donkey, the camels carrying the three kings of Orient will require regular food and rest breaks. Facemasks for the three kings are also advisable due to the likelihood of dust from the camels hooves. Rudolph the red nosed reindeer Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose. And if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows. You are advised that under the Equal Opportunities for All policy, it is inappropriate for persons to make comment with regard to the ruddiness of any part of Mr. R. Reindeer. Further to this, exclusion of Mr R Reindeer from the Reindeer Games will be considered discriminatory and disciplinary action will be taken against those found guilty of this offence. A full investigation will be implemented and sanctions - including suspension on full pay - will be considered whilst this investigation takes place. It's official, the world has finally gone mad! ;-)
