    Tav - Class act

    Good luck to him, Why do we criticise him moving to Bournemouth, I am sure he will get game time. He could move to a bigger club and sit on the bench for the rest of his contract.

In the end I relented as he was going down an art/creative route which macs are much better for. For his 18th I bought him a desk top for him to use for his music degree, he...

    Johnson government achievements debunked

    I understand he was a great party leader, although I think he may have misunderstood that part of his job. He is still working through another 60 leaving parties, culminating on his own in September. How long before the new incumbent needs to refurbish the flat ?
