There was i just dozing off gently as the "Cathedrals Express," which I had caught at Moreton in the Marsh, pulled slowly past Didcot. Then my phone rang. It was a Greek number but not one that I recognised. It was Nicho the Communist on a land line.

So you are in England, he said. I replied that I was. He was calling to say thart he and "The Albanian" were returning to the Greek Hovel this afternoon to finish the frigana poisoning. Thank you very much I said in Greek. We will meet this weekend to sort out a second payment for the Albanian and for me to hand over his favoured currency, whiskey.

The job is done, even without my assistance. In less then ten days what were green fields dotted with green frigana will be a golden brown. And we can start plotting where to plant our new olive trees.

In Kambos, Avrio may not always be tomorrow but it always comes in the end.

What is the army for? WokeTory MP for Wrexham Sarah Atherton yanks my chain again

The army is there so that if our nation is threatened they can go kill the bad guys. I don’t care who is in the army I just want folks I can rely on to go and kill bad people. That is why we have an army. It is not there as a decorative force to mirror society. Only fruitcakes on the left worry about quotas. Do we really need 0.2% of soldiers to be trangender and c2% to be LGBT? Or do the gays not matter in this game and we should only focus on women soldiers and those from ethnic minorities?  And why pick on the army and not other public sector bodies. Surely we have a right to know how many gay and lesbian dustbin operatives there are? From what I gather that sector is lmost entirely male, why is that? Where is the gender equality in dustbins?
