...was to not be a Conservative minister.
That way, he could have put it down to an administrative oversight and no more would be said about the matter.
One thing that I've discovered as I've grown older is that pale trousers are the bane of the middle-aged man
I think your fellow pupil is now working at my place of employment.
It's really quite simple.
Dinner is the main meal of the day.
If your main meal is in the very early afternoon, then you have dinner followed by tea in the evening.
If your main meal is in the evening, then you have lunch followed by dinner.
One of the four was probably Matt Hancock (the social network app, not the minister).
They may have done away with the "skip adverts" button, but the fast forward is still there and works almost as well.
I've not watched an advert on Virgin for years.
The problem with the old dreadnoughts was that prior to the construction of HMS Dreadnought the Royal Navy had an overwhelming numerical advantage over every other navy, but afterwards every pre-dreadnought ship everywhere was effectively obsolete - so other nations only had to build a single ship to be on level-pegging with the UK.
Because they have the best junkets?
Agamemnon was also Captain John Sheridan's ship prior to taking over command of Babylon 5.
Arnhem went down in history as a bridge too far, because the allies failed to permanently capture it.
I'm not sure if submariners would feel particularly inspired by sailing in a boat named after a famous defeat.
That would at least explain why the keyboards aren't working...
I'll be happy to think about this once Sir Geoffrey Vos QC sends me detailed logs of his daily movements.
Obviously, if the zookeepers had moved to the UK and become Conservative cabinet members before attempting this, their failure to properly inform the authorities would have been overlooked.
As a bonus, when the moonbase has been built, we can store tonnes of nuclear waste next to it.
What could possibly go wrong?
So basically Project Lightning is lightning fast in the same way that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is democratic.
Bloody Gallo-Belgics, coming over here, taking our jobs, using our NHS for five millennia.
The real scandal is that they didn't give the mass in Jubs.
Believe it or not, but the people who design their SSDs are not the people who design their CPUs.
What more do you need?
Snow Crash was very good, but not really startling, original, nor imaginative. The likes of Gibson, Sterling, and Effinger were all a lot better at cyberpunk.
Why do people spend thousands on laser eye surgery?
Why do people wear contact lenses?
Why did Google Glass fail?
Why did 3D TV never really take off?
Because people don't like wearing glasses.
So why do these companies think that strapping something that's many times heavier than than glasses to your face will be massively popular?
And my experience is that Juniper make really nice kit, but their resellers and disties are all pretty awful at selling - which leads me to believe that Juniper are pretty awful at selling.
If these kids didn't spend so much money on smashed avocados and beard oil they might be able to afford the occasional pint.
Is PowerMax named after Homer Simpson's alter-ego, Max Power?
Or as they say in Scarfolk, for more information please reread.
Micron is a US company.
Except that Gerald Kaufman was never Home Secretary.
The problem is that if you have a target of finding 100 illegal immigrants and you can only locate 90, you will be tempted to go after some legal immigrants who happen to be, through no fault of their own, easy targets.
The Windrush people were asked to provide multiple pieces of evidence that they were here for each single year for over forty years. I don't know many people who could do that. I couldn't.
It's not unlike giving ATOS targets to find cheats and then finding that people were unjustly losing their benefits.
She was an "Aristocracy Co-ordinator"
I'm happy to be called a Remaniac as long as I'm allowed to call the pro-leave people Quitlings.
You mean the Shadow Home Secretary who as a black working-class teenage girl got into Cambridge University in the 1970s?
Yeah, she sounds like a complete idiot.
You don't like your browser maker "selling out" so you're moving to Chrome?
Just wait until you find out about Google...
I was quite looking forward to the Leave.EU campaign why their website had suddenly vanished.
Often, an insanely-expensive top-of-the-range model isn't in there for people to buy. It's there to make people think they're getting a bargain when they buy the ludicrously-priced model just under it.
It's similar to the cinema popcorn tactic.
If Amazon can't deliver to my house because I'm out, then there's a high probability that my car won't be there either.
The work that Capita does will still need to be done, so the vast majority of those 70,000 will end up doing the same jobs but for the actual organisation that needs the work done.
The only people who will lose their jobs will be the sales drones and the ones who actually run Capita.
It's good to see Brian Cant listed amongst the greats like that.
According to a documentary about Edinburgh heroin addicts who enjoy watching trains that I once saw, drug addiction can itself destroy libido.
Gene Hunt: “This is my city. And it will be a safe place for my wife and my mum to walk around in. Is that understood?”
Detectives: “Yes, guv.”
Gene Hunt: [Sternly] “Right. Find out who the dead woman was, find out who killed her. Do it now.”
[He checks his watch]
Gene Hunt: “Hold up, hold up. Do it tomorrow morning, first thing. [Brightly] Beer o’clock, gentlemen.”
GCHQ probably don't want people to use ZTE kit because they've not been able to hack it.
It's no miniature giant space hamster though.
(Go for the eyes, Boo!)
As he is a leading Brexiteer, Tim Martin is a long way from anything resembling brilliant.
Different country, same inhabitants.
If you think about it, speed bumps are basically reverse potholes.
Since 2010 they've basically halved the amount of central government money given to councils while capping the amount of money that councils can raise themselves.
Crappy roads are an all too predictable consequence of that.
And people trust this lot to not confuse Assad with Asda.
For offline games, sure, you're right.
But MMOs have running costs (servers aren't free) and they tend to undergo continual balancing and development (the decent ones, anyway).
Personally, I much prefer the subscription model, but freemium seems to be the way things have gone over the last decade or so.
