He's a disappointment to our great nation, according to some.

Others say 'My time' is already past its time and is in dire need of an update with the latest finger event.

I say, we will have to wait until his hand's good enough for him to do so.

In the meantime, there's always the daily mail.

And tiwitter.

Add some t-ossers and w-ankers.

But RichmondRacer already treated us to the best spoiler.

From page 121 I believe.

It must be better than the first book. Mind you, what I flushed this morning was probably better than that.

so how was this year's experience as part of the Man Booker panel? :)

Gallagher is a predictable dullard. Finished the book. Nowhere near as good as i wanted it to be. the bit with the raleigh chopper just didn't make sense.

btw the book's also worth reading for the superb foreword by Robert Millar. Wish he would write more, such a good writer.
