Resurrecting this thread because it shouldn't go unnoticed that That Nice Mr Paulley has got 'Mordor' into Hansard, via the now legendary Tanni Grey-Thompson.   :thumbsup:

She is brilliant. If I met her, I think I'd become tongue-tied in awe.

When I competed back in 2004, I tried to explain to somebody why I did not want my racing chair to be thrown on to a separate bus. I said that I would rather my two year-old child was sent on a separate bus, but then I realised that I sounded like a slightly harsh mother.

Lady GT has improved in recent years... Twitter I think has done her good.

Well, it's hard not to be impressed by her work with the World Bollard Association.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Barakta is correct.  Although TG-T is a Baroness, her form of address is Lady Grey-Thompson.  She would only be called Baroness Grey-Thompson in the address on an envelope (when it would actually be 'The Baroness Grey-Thompson').

Station staff will be pleased to know that the steam train crash also done for the same film wasn't departing from their station.

its like what to do with something that looks like turd, cover it in tin foil.

You cant polish a turd, but you can cover it in glitter, or in New Streets case, tacky sheet metal
