    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.

    UK Politics: It's Life Pfeffel but not as we know it

    IIRC, the previous extensions needed the agreement of all 27 regardless of the president's opinion

    So Boris is meeting Macron today, the most dubious EU leader when it comes to extending deadlines. Do we think his strategy might be tomoiss off Macron so much that even if a GNU is out together, Macron will still refuse to extend the deadline whilst we have an election?

    Tusk knows this of course - which is why he replied to that letter with a straight bat. I think it likely, but there's no guarantee that the EU will reopen negotiations if Theresa's red line are withdrawn. There's no possibility whatsoever that they'll be reopened by Johnson adding red lines of his own on top of the existing ones.

    Needs some lessons from General Melchett on the correct and appropriate use of the swagger stick

    I see Boris is using the traditional British negotiating tactic of repeating himself slowly and loudly until those bloody foreigners understand him.

    Revolutionary contradiction

    Wat Tyler would be one example of the revolutionary coming from (and staying in) the lower socioeconomic class - though you probably couldn't call him particularly leftist.

    Well, at least all the fear about NI was unjustified project fear after all. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-49396108 Oops - wonder how soon Govebells will be doing this away?

    Rugby: Building up to Japan

    You can say that, but the only player he's ever dropped a fit Joseph for is Ben Te'o - and that only against Italy. Otherwise, Slade has only had that shirt whilst Joseph has been injured, or only just back from a long-term injury. I know my opinion that Eddie prefers JJ is an unpopular one, but it is backed by the evidence available. Beyond that, we're just round in circles, we already know each others reasoning and really should be happy enough to agree to disagree. Especially as Eddie has the only opinion that matters, and has already told everyone what that opinion is.

    Rugby: Building up to Japan

    Well, Wales reach #1 with that display; and it feels much less deserved after the hammer NZ handed Aus, and the fact that they only beat England because the ref doesn't know the laws (scoring a try from a quick penalty that couldn't be taken, with the clock stopped, and the whistle not blown)

    Rugby: Building up to Japan

    Wait... You'd make room for your novice, 3rd choice IC by dropping your 1st choice OC and defensive leader? And in what way is playing Francis at IC not changing the game-plan from Tuilagi there? Or are we talking at cross purposes there?

    He's jealous of their wall, and their authoritarianism; so he swings wildly between hating them for having what he wants, and loving them for having what he wants.

    Really wish the BBC would cease their fascination with the blood smears on the ground! Have some respect.

    Shit, I've just has an epiphany. This trade war he's manufactured with China... He's just jealous of their wall isn't he?

    The police threads are always about guns, and this one is specifically British... RIP PC Harper: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-49368649
