GCHQ can get to learn about the security solutions start-ups are developing, so that they have plenty of time to find a way around them.

...since the coalition government came to power.

It's also been 50 years since England won the World Cup. But that doesn't mean that they are the current holders.

Understand?

You obviously fail to get the joke about Bobby Ewing and the dream. You must not be old enough to remember 'Dallas' from the 1980's and 'Who shot JR?'.

Mix to Pither's sleeping face, waking up, shaking himself in disbelief at finding himself in a beautiful garden, with the sun shining, the birds singing. He is in a deckchair, and his mother, having poured him a jug of iced fruit juice, is gently nudging Pither to wake him.

Mother Come on, dear. Wake up dear.

Pither Mother!

Pither So, it was all a dream.

Mother No dear, this is the dream, you're still in the cell.

Mix to Pither waking up in the cell. The officer enters carrying a rifle.

Come to think of it, the whole Bexit thing is a bit like having your bicycle pump get caught in your trousers, isn't it?

I keep getting these spam emails, one is inviting me to apply for a graduate job in Cheltenham, the other is inviting me to apply for a graduate job in Chippenham. I wish they'd make they mind up. I only graduated 45 years ago, is that close enough?

As a resident of Cheltenham I am trying to recruit infosec and cyber security guys. They are good in pub quiz teams, but no beards please.

I am a Cheltenham resident who was good in a pub quiz team 20 years ago, but I now have a beard. It was purely coincidence that I grew it in the first few months after I left the team.
