On the front page. :shock:
We'll be selling those British-made magnetic foot-massage machines to the Kiwis, Aussies and Saffers once we're cut free from the dead hand of Delors.

Ian Botham has endorsed Brexit. Botham's endorsement will have 'a big impact' according to Tony Parsons on Marr.

Parsons also made an unrelated but equally idiotic point:
UKIP voting Tony Parsons argued that; Labour has betrayed the working class (because of immigration) and is "an old-fashioned political party from the 20th-century party."

Just listening to Peinaar's Politics (BBC Radio 5).

One long brexit discussion, with all but one guest being Brexiters to date.
The "I don't accept that" gambit, is featuring large.
It's their default response to any suggestion that things might not be perfect in a post Brexit fantasy world.

The Dutch play and it is a Flemish game

Botham was once seen as a maverick for smoking the odd doobie and telling South African cricket tour organisers where to go. Show's how low the bar was set for being a counter-culture figure in Thatcher's Britain. Especially in English cricket.

They won the silver medal at the 1900 Olympic Games.

The old joke used to go that a promising cricketer gains extra points for his Aussie immigration card.

There's the Irish cricket team of course - like in Rugby they play as an All-Ireland side rather than two separate national teams. Claimed a couple of scalps against Pakistan and England & Wales in recent world cups.
