I'm not sure "Dubai" still counts as a province, but I had nowhere else to put this headline. Does it make any sense to anyone??

You want the "Little Eye On The Emirates" thread, Matt. HTH and FYI  ;)
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

Imagine my surprise when I find that those two newspapers are not owned by Trinity Mirror.  They took a couple of fairly decent local papers, The Liverpool Echo & Daily Post and closed one town & turned the other into a football, crime & sleb crapfest.  >:(

One assumes that's not snakes doing what snakes naturally do. People are strange.

I liked the headline below: Beware the Wiltshire beauty spots used for dogging.

Badgers close road (until at least July)

We used that road a fair bit.  Messes up our 50 mile route!

Environmental laws mean officials have to wait three months before work can start to allow the badgers to vacate the area.

Why do I get the image of an environmental officer handing the badges an eviction notice.
"sorry mate, this is council property and you can't stay here. You have three months to leave, if you need housing support contact your social housing officer at the council with your reference number"

Do badgers normally vacate their sets in July? Or is it a cub thing?
