'Promises made, promises kept'

The PotUS plans to seek a second term but I think he has little chance, he is alone against 20+ democrats
How unfair is that? %)

I think you mean "Brassed Off" with Pete Postlethwaite? About a Barnsley Colliery Brass band.Loosely based on the quite famous Grimethorpe Colliery Band.Not a bad film.(I accept it may have had a different title in Europe?)
I must be the only person in Sheffield who has not seen the Full Monty!On Holiday at Lake Garda in 2003 and the lady owner of the on-site shop asked me where in the UK I was from and when I said Sheffield she told me she'd been here for a few days to do the Full Monty Tour.....very strange as it was filmed in some less than desirable parts of the City :|


I was at the premiere. Only film I've seen where a lot of the audience stood and clapped and cheered at the end like a theatre crowd.

Uwe-Karsten Heye was spokesman for the Schroeder regime in Germany from 1998

'I thought the job would be like a high-wire act without a safety net, but it was more like a high-wire act without the high-wire', he bleated

Perhaps he could help BoJo with publicity about his domestic disorder :?

It is nice when people come to visit
It is nice too when they stay a while to eat and talk
And it is especially nice when they go away again
