Cannock isn't in the West Midlands.

It isn't historically though. Mainly because in Cannock it is still in 1842.

Best thing about Cannock is the OK Diner.

Er, no it isn't - politically.

Andy Street is mayor of the West Midlands county. Nothing to do with Cannock.

Don't let Trump know, he'd be onto that in a shot (if they serve cheeseburgers).

No, DB. Check the links that Blueangel and I provided. You'll just have to face up to the fact that you have a Conservative mayor.

As I don't use twitter, could someone please tweet Andy Street and ask him?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

... the mayor will chair a West Midlands Combined Authority which also includes Cannock Chase, Nuneaton and Bedworth, Redditch, Tamworth, and Telford and Wrekin.

Oooh, an unelected Conservative mayor, at that (read the link above)... the perfect ingredients for a revolution!

Ooh, I dunno. Would a revolution interrupt the reliable supply of mild and scratchings?

I made the huge mistake of telling my OH that Trump thinks he comes from a "shithole" when he got in from work. That led to 15mins of him stomping round the house grumbling a torrent of abuse in Afrikaans and Greek. Now, every time Trump's face comes on tv, OH uses a particularly rude hand gesture that Lewton would understand
It can be a bitter pill to swallow.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Well seeing as DB's avatar is off a pissed up cad and a bounder, and KK's avatar is of mushroom (which are kept in the dark and feed off shit), at least one of those is an accurate representation. Eeny meeny miny moe...

I'd also like to confirm I won't be meeting Trump when he comes to Switzerland.
Funnily enough, a chap from the next village might have to meet Trump when he comes for the WEF .

No it's not, it's Hollie's Truckers' Caff. Biggest greasy breakfast I've ever had. They seem to have tarmacced the car park since I was last there (35 years ago) - posh!
