I hadn't realised that having benefited from privilege yourself disqualified you from recognising or criticising it subsequently.

But he didn't criticise public schools in his speech, only grammar schools.
made a series of appropriate comments about "motorists" behavior ... true on this side of the pond too

I'm a bit hesistant about rechargeable AA these days - some of them are a bit oversize and can get stuck in battery slots that are 'close tolerance'.
It happens with lithium 18650 batteries too.
Mostly it's extra length caused by the protection PCB in the + end (2 to 5 mm), but they can be a tight fit widthways as well.

Mini-hatler chose today as his first go at competitive cyclo-cross. It was snowing quite a bit as he set off. Still, at least he stayed warm. I was bloody freezing standing around watching.

I just can't be arsed with it. I can open my own curtains ffs.

Well on that point I must say I've had motorised curtains on the front of the house for nearly 25 years now, and they have been a fantastic asset.

I bought them when the cat died (the neighbours would come in to feed cat/pull curtains).  So they have replaced pets, neighbours, well everything really.

Not all. Hummers spent time searching for his in a field in Lincolnshire after it was ripped from his bike by the wind. ::-) A picture of this went as viral as can be achieved in the niche that is Audaxing.

It always seems worth reposting that photo ;D

Just heard that there is one fewer.

Took me a while to figure that one out.  Imagine how his victims must suffer every time that name is mentioned.

As someone who lived on publicity, not mentioning his name seems a fitting final insult to the scumbag.

Excellent.  Like your thinking.
