Most underrated band of the Eighties? I reckon so.

Thoughts etc?

It's called a tailor Dave.

Er, I use a tailor. For my entire suit, and most of my shirts.

Bespoke unaffordable in the UK, best buying a load when on holiday somewhere that still has tailors. I've seen people bring back excellent suits from Morocco and the Middle East.

If I was forced to wear a suit for work, and didn't have access to an affordable tailor, I'd probably mix and match shabby Cambridge don style, grabbing different but nicely fitting components - a tweed jacket here, a brown trouser there etc.

Smalls, can you give us some tips on ledging the festive season bants and generally being a Banter Santa?

After all the vitriol you have spewed in the past about being Irish and it turns out your old dear is a Mick.

You are some can of piss Dave lol

Well, she's not Irish, my grandparents, great uncles etc are.

Anglican but my sister is Catholic, weirdly. My dad's side of the family are English, my mum's side are Irish Catholic.

Growing up they were just interested in getting us into the best local primary school wherever we were, which explains the difference (9 years between us).

Living in China, an avowedly atheist country, where people are out to totally fuck each other all the time now it's capitalist, gives you a different perspective. I think a reasonably benign Anglicanism/Methodist/Unitarian Christianity is a good thing in terms of community cohesion and giving people some basic morality (i.e. do to others as you would have done to you etc). I am completely in favour of the Church of England and the Methodist Church as institutions for good now (the Catholic church, less so, for glaringly obvious reasons).

It worries me that pilots/airline staff do this kind of stuff while on a three-day layover.
