Amen. I agree.

A minor disagreement here. Replace the word "geniuses" with the word
"Yorkshiremen" and I'd agree with you !

One of the all time great comebacks....  Funny though, I always
thought it was Disereali to Gladstone??

Ob Cricket: I too think Atherton was great in England, and I think the
series could quite easily have been 2-2 or possibly even 2-1 in favor
of England (though, not to take anything away from the magnificent
bowling of Ambrose in the 3rd test).

The PFLH is to be found more commonly on soc.culture.british, together
with its front organisations, the Nazional-Sozialistische Dewsbury
Arbeiterpartei and Ladies Raffia Circle, and the Mabel Pickles Club. A
cell is also active at the Institut fur Funfzigsforschungen Frankfurt,
particularly in the Mabel Lucy Attwell Restoration Project.

Plans to sabotage the tea-urn at the Yorkshire Cricket Club Committee
Rooms are already under consideration.
