    More likely explains where Ed and his alter ego , Christopher , got their inspiration .

    Humble bow .

    As you might learn with further sampling , Ed's only real success was a single episode script for Tenko .
    One of the many running jokes .

    Multi award winners . Ed and I .Naturally .

    A classical violinist is pleading for help from the public after leaving a 310-year-old violin worth £250,000 on a train.

    Stephen Morris forgot to pick up his handmade David Tecchler violin as he left the London to Orpington service at Penge East last Tuesday night.

    What bozo thought "handmade" was informative in this context? I do wish they'd attribute articles to perpetrators.

    New Zealand swat Wales aside to win Rugby World Cup bronze final.

    No, I've stared at it and I can't work out what the word "final" adds to that headline.

    The author just wanted to rub it in that NZ is done?

    It’s the bronze that caught my eye, if anything they’re usually known as the “a” final and the “b” final - I’ve never seen them referred to as the gold final and the bronze final.

    Nor have I, actually.

    Lordy me, the way things get twisted.

    According to the Guardian, John Bercow has claimed that Britain fighting in World War Two was an even bigger mistake than Brexit.

    That is, of course, not what John Bercow said at all.

    Guardian version: "Brexit is UK's biggest mistake since second world war".

    Actual quote: "Brexit is the biggest mistake of this country after the war".

    Now me, I'd agree with both statements but that's just me. That's not what John Bercow said.




    ETA: I've just watched the interview and even the Guardian's text in quotes is not what I heard. What was said is "Brexit is the biggest foreign policy blunder of the post-war period".

    I do wish some exemplar at the Guardian could show her colleagues how to legitimately deploy quotes. Does the Guardian Style Book have nothing to say on the matter?

    One witness described the brawl as “one of the scariest moments of her life”.

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...mingham-cinema

    No, that is not credible. That is a paraphrase or a statement, it can not possibly be a quote. The sentence is fine and may even be truthful if the quote marks are omitted but it can be neither as it stands.

    I'm wondering why https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-50644545 switches randomly between the words Neuron and Neurone. I'm unaware of any distinction in meaning between the two spellings but it does make the article harder to follow.

    "By the late 20th cent. the form neuron was the commoner of the two, and had become standard in scientific usage", as the OED puts it.
