    My name's an homage to the grammatically incorrect Wat Tyler, who led the Peasant's Revolt a mere 640-odd years ago. The avatar is the Monty Python crew having a bit of a moan about Pedants like myself. My pedantry is keen, but unskilled I'm afraid.
    My principal hobby is rugby, from which I retired (hurt) just over a decade ago; though I still follow the game, and support both the grass roots level, and Bath in the English top flight. I seem to be a much better supporter than I ever was as a player. I'm a fan of historical fiction and comedy, with Terry Pratchett and Bernard Cornwell as my favourite authors.

    I don't bake, knit, crochet, spin etc but I try to carry my weight about the house by being a keen, but unskilled (hmmm, that phrase seems to sum me up really) at gardening and DIY. I am, however engaged to Ali who does all of the that; though she rarely bakes - that's more for self-preservation of the waistline than anything else. She also has a tendency to steal my account log-ins for any discussion forum I use (most likely, if you see me posting in Dr Who, that'll be her); though I will make sure she doesn't use any of my mod-privileges.

    Beyond that.... I'm a chiropractor, and I work alongside Ali (massage therapist) as just the 2 of us in a small town that seems to spend half it's time under water since we moved here. We have 2 cats, 1 dog and 0 offspring are confirmed generation X-ers; and one of those lame-arse couples who got engaged a decade ago, but still haven't gotten around to actually getting married. My humour is generally inappropriate, but I enjoy bickering as well; so all's well that ends well.

    Rugby: A New Dawn

    FTR, Ewels has played a reasonable amount at #8 - at age grade he was always a lock/8, and spreading his time about 50:50; then a couple of years ago when Bath had a backrow injury crisis he played for about 3 months, and has filled in a few other times due to injury during matches. Has certainly played there more than Curry, and possibly even more than Earls

    Rugby: A New Dawn

    France came to play (and are reminding me why I fell in love with the French in the 80s-90s).. Wales came to niggle, led by Biggar who is happily have seen carded for his conduct (assuming he's had the warnings, reversals and march-backs I'd also have given him)

    Rugby: A New Dawn

    I don't want to talk about it - but suffice to say - buggered if I know
  4. Especially with the Tory definition of "low-skilled" often meaning "3 year degree + 2 year practical experience"
  5. Agreed - the room rental seems about right for the time (my rent doubled between 1995 and 2003 from £50 to £100 a week, in a cheap part of Bournemouth) - the problem is that the location was compulsory
  6. Thats the magic of zero hours contracts - simultaneously working full time, and not at all. And at zero hours, you can work 40 jobs a week!
  7. Thank you. He's simply using the same framing device to give it a first person viewpoint throughout
  8. Isn't he getting seriously old now though? - Uhtred should already have started writing his memoires! Maybe that will be the rivetting story of the next book
  9. Quite honestly, racism is just an extension of tribalism. Whether you hate someone because of their skin colour, or their shirt colour doesn't matter - you hate them because they're "them" not "us"
  10. Radio Times article on Season 4: https://www.radiotimes.com/news/on-demand/2020-02-12/the-last-kingdom-season-4/
  11. Have some pity man! They're in the midst of successive natural disasters, let's not add insult to injury!
  12. Hasn't he also authorised £5Bn for bus and cycling projects - with no actual projects attached; and further feasability studies on a completely unfeasable bridge betwen 2 parts of the UK that won't be parts of the UK for much longer. Not to mention airport islands and garden bridges he's happily put his name to (and other people's money) without any thought at all to practicalities. Not that I have any particular problem with the broad strokes of HS2 - it just seems to be identifying a need to spend money somewhere (transport infrastructure north of Birmingham), and then finding almost the worst possible return for that investment.
  13. What does it say?
