Many city centres nowadays have pop up toilets, which rise up out of the pavement after a certain time in the evening to allow street-pissing in a urinal. Mostly, I imagine, by men who may or may not be drunk.

BONG! ... Woman drives car ... BONG!

As somebody who's only visited the UK sporadically for the past 20 years or so, when did the Telegraph become such a rag ?

Sometime between 1999 and 2010. I can't be more specific for the same reasons as you.

I stopped and checked my bike on Sunday because I was hearing some strange noises.

I concluded that it was the heat affecting the tarmac - it was 33+C at that point

BONG!... (BBC..who else?)

Jay Z has changed the spelling of his name again - this time to JAY-Z

FYI Wowbagger, Jay-Z...actually now JAY-Z, is one of those Black talky-singer chaps from America.  You know, like an effy-jeffy Wordsworth - "I wandered lonely as a muthafuckin cloud.."

BONG!.......Someone lightly touches Queen's elbow

BBC -
Quote
Canada's governor general in protocol breach with Queen
Canada's Governor General David Johnston has said a "slippy" carpet was to blame for an apparent breach of royal etiquette with the Queen.
He was seen to be lightly touching the Queen's elbow as she descended some steps, during an event in London to mark Canada's 150th birthday.
"I was just anxious to be sure there was no stumbling on the steps," he told CBC News.

I'm unclear from that story what the 'via a company in Luxembourg' means; do they mean the ISP is based there?

I think so.

The headline linking to the story was "Welsh man gets internet from Africa", which is clearly ridiculous.

Probably rubbish.

Presumably because SES Astra are based there.
Like saying you get you Sky TV from Luxembourg.

They don't retail anything to the public, they rent transponder space to service providers like Sky etc.

Actually it is the first rise the top grades in 6 years. But still not earth-shattering.
