    Not sure of the name, some chap from the Isle of Man.

    Use or pamper

    Shoot it. I shoot at pigeons with a Perazzi that was at the Commonwealth Games. Why wait for someone else to appreciate something that is yours? The value of something to you shouldn't be based on it's saleable value unless you have an actual plan to sell it.

    Pigeon breast suggestions please

    This one is my favourite: http://lizzieeatslondon.blogspot.com/2009/04/wood-pigeon-breast-with-sherry-onion.html?m=1 Sherry, onion and pomegranate syrup. Worth bothering to get the syrup. I don't cook my pigeon breasts like she does. I do five minutes in a cast iron pan and serve immediately.
  4. "Clout" was the sewn up underwear that poor children had all through the winter, after being covered in grease. Flaps for bathroom use, natch. "May" is the hawthorn.
  5. I do a couple of small bag driven days. I have no problem paying up front to secure a place on a good shoot. It is more irritating (although fair) to be asked for more money in December. I'd rather hand it all over earlier. Half down at the end of the previous season, half in September would be fine with me But that is for 100 birds, no overages.

    Sugarbeet

    Doesn't help when Tesco stop selling British sugar. I have to go elsewhere for Silver Spoon now. I don't want cane sugar for most things, it has a different price and the distance it has travelled is shocking. And how much for? A penny to the consumer. Not to mention Tate and Lyle do inferior icing sugar.

    GP medical

    Sounds like you'd get further by arguing class discrimination! Especially if you didn't use an obscenity on the phone. If you did swear, you'll probably need to accept that is considered aggressive in formal and business circles and definitely in the NHS. If you didn't swear you had better find a new GP and send in supporting letters.

    Eriswell Shooting Ground

    Which site is this?

    I really don’t get it

    I don't like to be mean about it. What's an extra £20 tip when I've had the privilege of shooting a wonderful shoot? Still, you hear a lot of people saying you can't give game away.

    I get a couple of driven days on small shoots. On one shoot I asked if I might take extra and they said a pound a pheasant. I thought that was quite a lot.

    Prescriptions shooting glasses

    If you have a prism prescription Ed Lyons is very good at finding you a pair of glasses that will work with that. You can send over a prescription and Ed will give you some options. http://www.ed-lyons.com/ I wasted my time going elsewhere and went back to Ed.

    Not guilty - but pay up!

    The reputation of one man is more important than all the women who have been raped, including all the women who have been raped and not reported it. To even risk this happening is misandry. Right. Got it.

    Not guilty - but pay up!

    We can only go by the official statistics of such things. I refer anyone with an interest to the 2013 document of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). https://www.cps.gov.uk/sites/default/files/documents/legal_guidance/perverting-course-of-justice-march-2013.pdf In a 17 month charging period from January 2011 to March 2012 "there were 5,651 prosecutions for rape, and 35 prosecutions for making false allegations of rape." To know more than one person who has been falsely accused of rape you have to be very unlucky. Or possibly they actually did rape someone, but in the face of a system and a world against them the victim never had any chance of success. Believe women all the time and you'll be right more often than not. Hard though, when misogyny is fed to you at every level of life. Joseph in the Old Testament anyone?

    Not guilty - but pay up!

    I am heartened to see so many men being reasonable about this case. I think anyone desperate to believe that the man involved has been unfairly treated, that he didn't do it, should be asking themselves why they think like that and how it looks to other people.
