More irritants spoiling an old man's morning.

No Sky TV so periodically having to listen (or not) to female commentators on BBC TMS reporting 'mens' cricket! Why?

Also the PC brigade informing us that our heritage language 'latin' and its
abbreviations are to be excluded from gov.uk sites because it is too difficult
for non english speakers. What complete Bxxxxx!

I'm currently in a conversation with the Charity Commission trying to understand a form and decide whether or not I want to sign it. Well, I say conversation, but they're taking two or three weeks to answer each email.


I am reasonably certain that the lack of technical precision in the form and associated documentation, and hence my inability to understand exactly what it means in legal terms, are due to some clever clogs deciding that the language needed to be dumbed down into "plain English". The result of which at present looks like I won't sign so won't become a charity trustee.
