Strictly Come Dancing was a good thing for the first couple of series, and maybe, at a stretch, three.

Thank Christ for that, it does my swede if I’m channel surfing and land on rugby.
An equal combination or not “getting” it, and flat out bored by it, run a bit, stop and all fall over, rinse and repeat, ad nauseam.
The thing is you could say that about any sport. Running around a field kicking a bag of air around, driving around in circles, throwing heavy things across a field, bashing coloured balls around a table. All very pointless


All apart from ladies beach volleyball though!

There should be a LOT more ladies sport on television. Hockey, football, cricket etc.

But no tennis.

I agree. Im a feminist at heart. The way the ladies dive off a high board into a pool is far more watchable than the mens.

See also... all other reality shows... almost all are completely played out and over-egged.

One exception being the Great British Bake Off which is much better under Channel 4.

It baffles me why so many people appear to give a fk either way. On BBC Breakfast the (yet to be decided) point at which he packs it in is being described as a "historic moment in sport".
Did I hear correct that Wimbledon will be having a statue of him ?
If Henman has a Hill, Murray should have a Monument, or a Mint.
I like what you did there smile

I propose Morgue.

He can bury his career there.

They can have a statue of him in Scotland, I don't want him in England.

Whatever. I've no idea what he's earned over the years, but I imagine it's a lot. Couldn't be bothered to even google it. Maybe millions then.

I'm still willing to be he'll be able to scrape by rolleyes Don't think he'll be spending the rest of his working-age life rounding up trolleys outside Tesco to make ends meet

Certainly not if his restaurant continues to charge £300 for a meal for 4 people.

Sorry for the Brexit post but my opinion is: virtually no member of the public who is saying this brexit deal is bad would be able to explain if asked what is bad about it and why. i fking hate politics, but this whole thing has made me also hate the electorate.

I have another: if this deal is bad, it's absolutely stupid to make it a party-political issue. No other party can prove they could have done any better, or said how they would have circumvented issues in negotiation... the only opposition voices are blah blah blah tories, blah blah blah bad deal... can i be prime minister now? and yet people think this disheveled on the other side is somehow better? He has nothing.

Don’t know where his restaurant is, maybe it’s a good place and worth it.
I took my wife, son, and daughter-in-law out to a nice place in London’s northern suburbs for dinner recently, great ambience, excellent food and wine, wait staff were there when you wanted them, and faded into the woodwork otherwise, it came to £276 including tip.
Okay, I’m not in a position to do that weekly, but once every couple of months is okay.
