    I've no idea if it was the case then, but I think I read somewhere that the Main and General Trust owns a lot of the local papers now.

    The Mail seem to be outdoing even the Express in the "Dead woman still dead" anniversary stakes.

    "...known for his catch phrase 'and why not'..?'"


    "I’ve never ever said, ‘And why not?’ in my life," laughs the 73-year-old

    It turns out it was the impressionist Rory Bremner who first came up with the expression while mimicking the movie buff during one of his shows

    Given what I'm imagining, reading the article could only be a let-down.

    After months of deep cover work, the DM has come up with this gem.

    Shockingly taking taxis for work rather than walking just 20 minutes completely invalidates the very simply advise to walk where possible for health benefits.

    That's not a particularly massive taxi bill. I've had customers that spend that every month.

    In a bold move, this lady proves she's both a racist and entitled cry baby because in a shock move the local council won't let her build a house on agricultural land.

    HMRC lose billions every year through the British maintenance of such overseas territories as tax havens, and, if our politicians were willing, I reckon we could use this natural disaster to solve the overarching problem.

    On a totally unrelated note, the Mail's proprietor, Jonathan Harmsworth says he lives in France whilst actually living in Dorset, and hence avoids many British taxes.

    Correct me if this is no longer the case, but I believe Mr Littlejohn doesn't live in May's Britain, and nor did he in Cameron's.
