If you ever wondered why Gary Kasparov changed his name from Weinstein, now you know.

From Pendle today - on the 50th anniversary of a local barber's business.

Peter said. “I want to enjoy myself; there’s no sense in being the richest man in the urn! I’m from Lancashire, not Yorkshire!”

Alexander Stubb, vice president of the European Investment Bank and a former prime minister of Finland:

`...the economic facts are just such that there are no winners in Brexit - apart from perhaps a few lawyers. Unfortunately, we will see this in the coming years." LINK

I heard him say that and I'm afraid he is right. Or rather that's my opinion too!

I had to laugh when I heard Will Self referring to oldies who try to act like teenagers as: "...stretching the knicker elastic of adolescence until it snaps back in their face...". :laugh5:

From the Guardian - there must be a joke in it somewhere. Made me :smile:

"Home Office officials have privately admitted the department is having problems increasing its immigration staffing levels as part of its Brexit preparations and may have to recruit Polish and other eastern Europeans to help register the 3 million EU nationals in Britain."

Jeremy Corbyn has just said in response to the budget - as I heard it

"cap credit card debt so that nobody pays back more than they borrowed"

He's reading from a prepared 'response' so is that what his script really said? I think I know what he meant to say - but I doubt it was what he actually said. :smile:

PS My hearing is not what it once was - so I checked with Hansard -

"Why did not the Chancellor take the opportunity to make two changes to control debt: first, to cap credit card debt, so that nobody pays back more than they borrowed; and secondly, to stop credit card companies increasing people’s credit limit without their say-so? "

From Dennis Skinner's twitter -

Will Meghan Markle get UK citizenship?

NO CHANCE.

Partners need to show they can support their spouse "without recourse to public funds".

That's the UK strategy for Brexit. Matthew Parris writing in The Times said that the EU's strategy for Brexit is based on that of Napoleon: "Never interrupt an enemy when he's making a mistake."

also. As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” 'Mencken'.
