    Default Sign of the Times

    Who the heck in their right minds would want to learn Polish, with all that diabolical spelling? I'd sooner try and learn Welsh (and get about as far).

    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Just say the following and you'll be burning holiday cottages in no time

    tidy like
    nice shoes them boots
    who's coat is that jacket on the floor
    you reading that paper you sat on
    I went back to where I parked my bike and there it was, gone
    I loves you I does, I buys you chips don't I

    simple really.
