However, Bristol Port has told Bristol Live that it is “too early to tell” how the Honda factory’s closure will impact them.

(I've just noticed that's from September 2018.  But I reckon it's such important not-news that I'll leave this post here anyway.)

I think we commented at the time.

Man, who's wife has just given birth, goes to look at a new car.

I am with Tors regarding a link. Premise being that the Prince goes to Holland and looks at a Land Rover.

The current generation of Corvette, and the one before that too, are not large at all.  Beats me where they found space for a petrol tank, unless it's in hyperspace.

Though you can get a road bike (with the wheels off) in the back of a C7 ;D

I think that's harsh. They make for a good place to park an automobile during the epic quest to purchase a lottery ticket.

There is a link between the increase in organised crime and the reduction of spending on police forces.

And the government accepts the findings of the report that says so. So said a chap on the wireless this morning.

Gender reveal party goes wrong.

Quote
One of the pioneers of the gender-reveal movement said in July that it was time to “re-evaluate” the practice and that her own daughter had begun to explore her gender and defy gender norms.

Is there a support group for people who've had this sort of thing happen?  I'm sure the woman who invented the term "incel" would be in good company.

If you mean people who've started things which seemed like a good idea at the time but went wrong in other people's hands, haven't we all? Admittedly not on that scale...
