    Three front pages for the Great British Bake-off. Come, friendly bombs, etc. Sad to see the Daily Express isn’t one of them, but they’re probably still narked that a brown lass in a headscarf won it once.

      What’s with the British need to append British to light entertainment?

      Great British Bakeoff, Great British Menu, etc.

      Is it insecurity or what?

    I still love the Commitments. Dublin looks like a sewer and it’s fully of hammy performances, the horse killed in the crossfire is a bit of a joke too, but it’s just magic.
