"Badger abuse? Is that legal?
By the way, how are things in Oxford? Still dry?"
I'm fairly sure its not. I was raised in an environment were badgers were discriminated against in a sectarian manner. And now I come to the interwebs to find out people are flaunting their badgers, by claiming a groinal relation. Its just wrong !
(I'm really very upset about this)
Word is that parts of Oxford are still flooded. The city centre has high rivers but the last two days have been fairly dry.

The local radio station put out a 'war on terror' style bulletin on Saturday, "rainfall to equal more today than the rest of July put together". Total Defcon One style.

Of course the local station then followed this story with the news that everyone in the cash for honours scandal had got off scot free. Complete with a 'reporter' who cheerfully asked, "Are you glad that no charges have been brought against you ?" with a go-team-go-team enthusiasm.
I would have asked him if he was glad to be a free man in a world were people knowing what he'd done would be interested in wrapping barbed wire around his gonads at any given moment and how does that make him feel ?"
I would have said it in a very cheery voice.
