Just what we need right now:
Oh, so you are coming out of the same town were Gordon Ramsay way raised. Did you meet him during your time there?
Given that he was actually born in Scotland, he didn't move to Stratford till he was 9, and he's 20 years younger than me, I'd most certainly left the town by the time he arrived (couldn't get away quickly enough).Oh, so you are coming out of the same town were Gordon Ramsay way raised.

Might explain the appeal of that playwright dude then - Shakespeare, was it?

But still, the fact that the talks didn't finally collapse until now, is still promising for a happy end (most likely reached December 31 around 23 hours).The familiar problems of EU access to UK fishing waters and the design of a mechanism to ensure neither side can distort trade through undercutting standards remained unresolved but the differences were being gradually bridged, sources said.

In a brutal blow to European pleasure seekers, the popular sex toy company Godemiche has announced that a charge of £25 will be slapped on the back end of every order shipped to the continent.
The company regrets that it will be forced to thrust the extra costs onto customers as the charges threaten to penetrate their profits.

“We will do all in our power to reach an agreement. We’re ready to be creative,” she said. “But we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market, the main safeguard for European prosperity and wealth.”
