    Sorry, I don't mean to divert this thread into something interesting.
    Don't worry Mal will have us back on track again soon. Nothing interesting about dodgy Guinness. Red Stripe is not too bad IMHO.

    Nearly 40% of Guinness is consumed somewhere in Africa. Of five Guinness-owned breweries worldwide, three are in African nations. Nigeria, home to one of those five breweries, is the world’s second-largest market for Guinness consumption. Great Britain is first, Ireland comes third, Cameroon fourth, and the U.S. in fifth place.

    Most of it consumed in a single weekend when all the Plastic Paddies are out in force.

    The most guinness sunk was by a German.

    SS W. M. Barkley, built by Ailsa Shipbuilding Co., Troon in 1898 and owned at the time of her loss by A. Guiness, Son & Co. Ltd., Belfast (Dublin), was a British steamer of 569 tons. On October 12th, 1917, W. M. Barkley, on a voyage from Dublin to Liverpool with a cargo of stout, was sunk by the German submarine UC-75 (Johannes Lohs), and sunk 7 miles east of Kish lightvessel. 5 persons were lost.

    But its all about knife crime - we know that because Boris says so. So he is afraid of a vote. If he wanted to galvanise the opposition to him within parliament then he has just done it. I really hope that the talks yesterday will now intensify and the MPs there will cut the crap and vote for a second referendum and quickly so that it can get through the Lords too.

    In other news Johnson is thought to be loading up the Lords with Leave supporting peers - in the wider world this is called gerrymandering.

    So I am now wondering whether this is an attempt by Johnson to break the record set by George Canning - that of the shortest tenure as Prime Minister. If he goes before 19 November the record is his. Personally, I wouldn’t be too bothered if he were to break it spectacularly and set a new bench mark of, say, 36 day - tomorrow. Go on Johnson, you know you want to do it.
