Bad Things John Major errr did
Things John Major did. (There was also the Cones Hotline, which you could call if you badly needed to talk to a cone.)
RT @Charlesknight: @charlesarthur A good summary of every conversation online between an American and the rest of the world.…
Whereas Theresa May had to escort Trump around as her “leaving office” present.
Ah yes, this would explain why John Major gets low marks with the current Tory Party infestation.
Tfw you realise that the Americans who designed Facebook's cryptocurrency live in a world where contactless payments basically aren't a thing
"Just change the times of all your meetings! It's simple!"
This is bizarre. I was no fan of Major at the time, but in retrospect he got historically important stuff done - such as beginning negotiations with the IRA, which led to the GFA. I mean, Hague?? Duncan-Smith, who they dumped so fast??

Just interviewed @ValtteriBottas for Abloy (one of his sponsors). A talkative Finn? A talkative F1 driver?? But he is. Also knows where the camera is for selfies.
Picture proof with @ValtteriBottas (one for @teroterotero )
RT @indiaknight: Yes. Because it is.
I think No.3 is a racing certainty within 10 years because the backstop will be implacable; Johnson would be willing to have an “Irish Sea” border and screw the DUP.
Crazy for Apple to have a display stand that costs one-fifth what the display does. TVs are different, obviously.

Fascinating story of evolution: we select for expression.
What the headline wants to say is all-male writing *rooms* which is a different thing entirely. A team (of two!) might write a TV series, but shows like Have I Got News have a “room” of people pitching in jokes for links etc.

Oh look, Gove is admitting they didn’t have a plan. Is this like a 12-step program?
That Thatcher-in-Paris clip from 1990 is such a Day Today moment. “She’s behind you!”

I am surprised that none of the Tory rivals have suggested Boris Johnson is frit, given the way that word rings down the years from Thatcher (to Michael Foot - or maybe Denis Healey - when she was PM, at a PMQs).

This is the most incredible thing. I can’t imagine how much rehearsal it took.

If you’ve been seeing the “wow, Tokyo crosswalks are AMAZING”, this is where it’s from - it’s film effects applied to a little clip. It’s not real (sadly).
