A pale shadow of what it used to be

Advantages: Gordon Bennett, leave it out (Terry McCann, 'Minder')
Disadvantages: I don't believe it! (Victor Meldrew, 'One Foot in the Grave')

I live in a large village with a population of 4,000 or so. About 20 years ago it had four pubs, or six if you included two more very close to the trunk road and within a two-mile radius. Four of them closed down at various times, and for the last three ...

Review of What do you think about the Dooyoo redesign?

If a hammer is the only tool u have then every problem is a nail

Advantages: We can still cash out
Disadvantages: Its a mess

As all dooyooers know we have been treated appalling over the site re-launch. Even members who have been there at the start (and we are talking the last century here) have been shown the green hand. 90% of writers appear not to be able to post up work and ...

Review of What do you think about the Dooyoo redesign?

Storm in a D-cup

Advantages: Retaining Terry would have been better for English football and for resisting witch-hunts
Disadvantages: Sacking him served no purpose except to appease media rabble-rousers
