Re: BREXIT - Ich Bin Auslander

Clearly the leak and the way it was so targeted at getting rid of Darroch is the biggest problem. Ambassadors can't do their job if they have to assume private briefings could become public at any point and Darroch's successor will have the same problem until that investigation is concluded (I thin...

Re: Seemingly trivial things that cheer you up

Getting home from work this afternoon and seeing my Australian neighbours have their curtains drawn and they don’t seem to be in the mood for conversation! Maybe they're getting jiggy with it.

Strava no longer linking with Relive.

Re: UCI Survey

Get rid of power meters and radios and make teams smaller was the agenda there. and with less money and not called Ineos, was my take :) shame really because from a WWT perspective budget & tv & courses are a big problem the UCI needs to fix, whereas in the WT its not really,but the survey ...

Friends who go on Strava after a few days off and give kudos for every activity you've done between their visits leaving a load of notifications for you to clear.
