Brilliant! My favourite three:

- bathing drawers
- gold coins

Every eventually covered.

"padlock and chain" but wait, I thought crime only started with 'youngens'! Back when this was all fields I am led to believe there was no crime at all! Damn it.

Ok now where's my travel barometer, I only have the below and it won't fit on the S1000RR at all!

Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!

But, if Scotland get their kilts in a flap and leave, we brits (lower case b note) won't know what our flag looks like  :(

… but if Wales left the flag wouldn't change :(

What I cannot understand about Nicola Sturgeon and her desire to leave the United Kingdom is her fervency to remain in the EU. So loathes Government from Westminster but is happy with Government from Brussels

Love to see the Scots get independence and strike out on their own. Huge monetary savings for the UK in the process.  :)

Hmmmm!  Depends on where you draw the border line in the North Sea. There’s still a lot of oil and gas out there!

I never travel without a strop. I can't abide a blunt murdering knife.

Also I get very upset.
