Your electricity bill will now have a capital letter in a square just below your address. This is your Load Block, which if it is necessary to introduce power cuts this winter, will tell you when you will lose power under the Government's Variable Rota Disconnection Plan. Details are at Rota Plans Annex 2 shows when you would be likely to be cut off. At best power would be cut for 3 hours on 3 days of the week. The second to worst option would leave you with an electricity supply for 3 hours on 2 days of the week. Time to stock up on candles and disposable barbecues?

Disposable barbecues, or barbecues of a non-disposable form, are not an ideal cooking arrangement in the winter months.

CO poisoning is a common effect when they are used indoors, as people might be tempted to do.

Enjoying a drop of red.
155 refugees you mean. Never forget how lucky it is to be born somewhere you aren't likely to be persecuted.

4% of people who seek asylum get turned down, so 148 of those people are in desperate need.
Put the buggers up in the Vine and they'd soon want to go back home.

War torn Whateveristan would seem like paradise compared to that place. Even Dover would seem reasonably pleasant.

If anybody should be 'demonised' it's that murderous barbarian Putin. He's pretty much f***** an entire planet ... for what ? (just to say 'my dick is bigger than yours' ?)

If we do end up in a nuclear exchange, (and it is on the cards) there's only one consolation. A nuclear winter might slow down global warming a tad.

Sorry, rant over. But winter has set in over there, and conditions can only get worse.
