Ice creams and barbecues all around?

As the searing heat lingers over  all of us - where might our elected representatives be heading to this summer? Brighton Pier? Lake District?

By's all gone Bushy

The G8 is in full swing and the world leaders are demonstrating their charisma, or lack of it for all things hip hoppy.

George Bush, that Texas Ranger (Cowboy of the Wild West) has been shooting his mouth off again.

But this time it's not been 'Go Get 'em folks, Yee Ha.'

Bush and Blair's initmate exchange, unaware it was being recorded ,appears to be two rudeboys talking gangsta rap with Bush appearing to be in touch with Ali G from 'da Staines Massif, yer.'

Yo Bush fancy coming down to Staines and hanging out with the so solid crew?

A Day In The Life Of A Market Researcher

“Hello there, my name is Scott Hammond and I am calling on behalf of…” that’s about as far as I get into my sentence as I sit aimlessly in my little blue booth. A computer screen in front of me, meaningless pieces of paper scattered across my desk and a headset to accompany my telephone.

World Cup, cold turkey?

Anyone suffering from lack of football?

I must confess waking up last Monday morning realising that the World Cup wasn't on bought a lone tear to my eye!

What was even more painful was coming in after a gruelling days work, only to find that the evening was confined to nothing more than listening to the news and hearing about Zidane's bust up with Materazzi.

Oh well, we havent got long to wait as the Premiership starts soon.
