    Marketing Ploy?

    Because that’s when they stopped being people you knew down the pub or your cousin’s new boyfriend and started being people from Milton Keynes called Fforbes-Smyth.

    Police Brutality or Reatraint?

    Yes, if you are an amoeba.

    Police Brutality or Reatraint?

    Very close...it was actually alien mafia.

    Rally Under Threat...

    I recall that a chap died in an accident on the Switchback (I think) in the early 1960s. That’s the only rally fatality I’m aware of.

    Shame on you for perpetuating a Manx stereotype...there...kept my face straight while typing that. Mostly.

    More death and destruction

    Absolutely correct. All bloody day (see my earlier post) I’ve been trying to remember the name of that Mail hack and couldn’t bring it to mind...but you’re bang on...Ian Wooldridge. As I recall he was a bit of a cock on a range of subjects..

    More death and destruction

    I think that Mail article was around the time that Mac Hobson and Kenny Birch were killed on Bray Hill and then Ernst Trachsel lost his life moments later at the foot of the hill; I’m guessing 1978 but I could be out a year or two.

    More death and destruction

    Are you sure it was TM? He was S.M.B. Hailwood’s manager and it was TM who engineered Hailwood’s famous TT return. More recently TM authored the Hutchinson biography. I can’t see TM penning a diatribe against the TT. I recall that the worst of the press comments were in the Daily Mail - “Bloodbath Island” - which scarcely comes as a surprise.

    It’s French for “Covfefe”.

    Thank fuck that’s over...I can have my television back and binge watch “Long Lost Families” on catch-up.

    Allinson has a hat eight sizes too big, Hooper looks as if he's gripped by chronic diarrhoea and Quayle, bringing up the rear, now appears to have pushed through the 25 stone barrier. Not the most imposing procession I've ever seen.

    Especially with the spooky “LC” connection.

    George Clooney Crashes Motorbike

    That’s the top and bottom of it.

    20% too many letters in your third word. As I’m sure you intended.
