"...packs of johnnies emblazoned with the face of ex-glorious leader Nigel Farage."
Did we really need further confirmation that Farage is a bell end?

The number of drivers who still consider using a non hands-free mobile phone at the wheel quite acceptable suggests a) The police don't give a f**k, and b) The drivers don't give a f**k.
'i' won't be purchasing a justWatch, but doubt the largely uninforced threat of the law will have any great impact on the vehicular activities of justWatch wearers.
I had the not entirely unpleasing experience of going to Hammersmith a couple of days ago to watch Kate Bush. It was rather good to not be viewing a thousand screens between me and the stage. I've not been to anything quite like this before (missus is the fan) but it was a thoroughly enjoyable event by a clearly very talented vocalist and talented musicians. Trying to prevent phone use at all gigs is probably unneccesary, but for this it proved worthwhile.
IR is a great feature, I use it on my (previous model) One a lot. As for the camera, the One may have many fewer pixels than other phones, but still makes great photos. People subscribing to the 'more pixels is everything' idea are being short-sighted.
The new One sounds like a relatively mild evolution of the previous model, so won't be rushing to upgrade, but given how superb the existing model has been, this will get strong consideration.
Anybody in the UK with even a vague sense of what is going on around them would be aware that NICE are not a body that gives test results, and has *something* to do with whether a given treatment should be made available on the NHS.
Then again, I spoke to a customer today, old enough to be married and have a child, who was not even aware of the name Tony Benn, let alone who he was, or that he'd died.
The people running this scam are evidently scum, but it should not be a surprise that people oblivious to the world around them are more vulnerable.
Absolutely loved Out Run, even owning an official Out Run t-shirt at some stage. I remember the first time I completed it, in an arcade in Oxford St, during a lunch break in my induction week at Midland Bank in on Tuesday 13th September 1988.
The music was great too - if Japanese jazz fusion is your kind of thing!
The home computer versions were, inevitably, poor by comparison, but I believe the Sega Saturn version is a very good version of the real thing. If I had the room and money for a top-spec cabinet version, and could get hold of one, it would be installed at the drop of a hat.
I recently retrieved my C64 from my parents' garage where it had sat for many years, along with many cassette tapes (and some discs for my "Enhancer 2000" disc drive from Evesham Micros. Why they felt the need to name it like a sexual aide I was never sure...)
I connected the Commodore up to my 42" TV (a little different to the 13-incher it was previously connected to), stuck in my Daley Thompson's Decathlon cassette, and am happy to report it loaded first time.
In this 'test' the cassette certainly showed good reliability over nearly 3 decades.
Then the south Koreans need to understand (and the majority may well do) that when a non South Korean does it, it is NOT considered rude.
Bill does far more good than harm with his position and wealth. I guess tall poppy syndrome is why some want to criticise him for a faux pas any westerner there could have made.
Will it also include the kind of weak spot included in the original that, if you happen to hit with a laser, means the whole thing explodes? It did seem something of an odd feature.
If they do choose to include it, any idea if there's an American company which specialises in including huge vulnerabilities in its products that might be called upon?
Perhaps they will come in prescription versions, if the glass can be ground to different prescriptions, or, ultimately, can be calibrated to modify what any wearer sees to put it in focus (which might kill off the regular lens-making industry).
As a "speccy four eyes" myself I'm optimistic we'll be accounted for.
Even claims in dodgy ads for making eyelashes 'lusher', or some such manage a larger sample size than that.
Can almost imagine the scene at the KPMG 'research centre': "Shit, we've got 7 minutes before we have to hand in this report, been caning the gak for the last 8 hours and 23 minutes....right, let's see how many sites we can squeeze in".
And these twats audit how many of the FTSE 100?
