    I went to Waterstone's last saturday, in Manchester, as it 'appens. In fact I went to three Waterstone's's, looking for a kids book called 'Deeper'. Two of the Waterstone's's didn't have it, but the third one didn't either.

    next time i go, i'll get a book on abberrant apostrophes

    Sainburys dropped one. Mind you he is a bit old.

    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.
