What Boris has been doing all along is perfectly logical if his objective is simply to become leader of the Conservatives and PM. It seems likely that the future of the UK and that of its citizens is of secondary importance to him.
Looked at from that perspective, at least the motive behind why he says the things he says starts to make sense, if not the arguments themselves. You've got to say, it's been working very well for him so far. Objective all but achieved.
I'm pretty sure that the Brexiteers and the Bonkers wing of the Conservative Party are sure that they are, and if not, then if they really wish hard enough, they will be. A bit like 'alternative arrangements' really.
All Mel said was that no approach has been made from Chelsea to speak to Lampard.
Sometimes, I think that there are just four posters on here who aren't total head-the-balls.
At other times, I'm not so sure about the other three.
I was also unimpressed last year, but each month since about October I tried one in the Canal House and noticed an improvement as time went on. I assumed at the time that it just needed ageing, so last month I went to the Monastery to buy a box, specifically to do just that. However, for a baseline, I tried one, and thought that this tasted totally different - no evidence of the 'thinness' which I had noted before. Long story short, 8 of my original 12 bottles have sort-of evaporated - I've been tasting them alongside other classic Belgian dubbels and quads. Last night was a big test - I had one followed by a Westmalle dubbel - and preferred the Tynt Meadow.
I have no idea how 'old' the boxes are/were when I bought them from the Monastery. I haven't really examined the label for brewing date - it could still be down to the beer 'maturing'. If you are at the cricket next week, I'll bring a couple of bottles along.
Yes. My latest order from Belgiuminabox has made its way from Mechelen (Antwerp) across the Channel to Hinckley, and is now on the DPD van in 'Out for delivery' status. I expect it around 1:00 pm today.
