POT-POURRI: A hotchpotch of offerings this week

Bit of a pot-pourri this week. First out of the ‘pot’ is my thanks to everyone for a veritable avalanche of mail re the Tom Jones piece.

Most were extremely positive; a number truly mind-boggling and some disturbingly sad. I think it’s now a case of ‘nuff said’. Something that truly made my blood boil was the report that the Scouts and Girl Guides had been banned from marching in a Remembrance Sunday parade, for ‘health and safety’ reasons.

The organisation apparently made the decision in case the event was ‘disrupted by protest groups’! Oh? And who might they be, I wonder? I don’t think we have to look too far for the answer to that. When are we going to stop kowtowing to these people, who are hell-bent on changing our whole heritage and culture? Ha! Don’t hold yer breath! What a veritable feast of rugby we have experienced over the last few weeks! And what a refreshing change from the pontificating, mincing minnows of the footballing fraternity.

Proper men, broken-nosed and bloody, playing on with injuries that would have the round ball brigade carried off on stretchers. Plus, through all the courage, blood and muddy gore, still retaining the utmost respect for the referee and his officials. What an example to our young people! Instead of the message of disrespect, whinging and egotistic narcissism delivered by the simpering soccer brigade. Well done, all of you, it has been a real blast. The X factor (what I could watch of it) has to my reckoning hit an all-time low.

Classic this week was their interpretation of one of Judge Nick Grimshaw’s statements, when he was referring to the number of seats he was allocated. ‘I wanted to have sex like everyone else,’ it stated. ‘So we had to bring somebody out!’ Headline of the week: ‘England treated my lad like a horse, nags Klopp’. Brilliant! And the biggest revelation of the week.

The meaning of Freddie Mercury’s mysterious lyrics for his Bohemian Rhapsody. Despite what they appeared to be, they were in fact a reference to his coming out, his misgivings, and an apology to his mum. Listen again. What a genius! Keep the faith Love Leapy [email protected]

  1. I am not, nor have I ever been a sports fan. However on the comparrison of Rugby and Football players. Does it strike anyone else, that the financial rewards for one group, are so indigestibly high, that they have to perform like prima donnas to justify their pay packet.
    Cheers
