How could anyone believe anything in that gutter rag?

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Am i not right in thinking that you posted a link to a DM article the other day?
Feeling grumpy, Norman, try dozy!

I was rather surprised in the suggestion that the South of France lacked the internet - but then realised it was from that respected contributor to world knowledge - the DM.

I used to rather like Helen Skelton, until I saw her on The Wright Stuff.

Where she told this tale. Heavily pregnant and went into labour, a friend was with her and called the emergency number. Ms Skelton was shocked that the Fire Brigade  (Sapeur Pompiers) arrived and as it was too late to take her elsewhere, delivered her baby. Said it was the first one they had delivered.

She went on to say she had no idea why her friend would call the Fire Brigade, and everyone else, who were equally ignorant about rural french life, laughed as she did.

Being pregnant how could she not have checked on such things, having moved to rural France. There is so much we learn as we go along, but when pregnant, never the less, there are questions to ask, important ones.


 I just don't trust a word she says anymore and avoid watching her.

et voila!

I had to think about that for a minute there; in my mind he’s ‘stable genius’ - in his words. ‘The Donald’ sounds far too cuddly to me. Definitely no cuddles with that one- ugh!
