Women should get equal pay

It should be banned but it’s still happening. No, I don’t mean another series of Celebrity Big Brother. I mean the unfair differences between men’s and women’s pay.

Embarrassed by ignorant Brits

I’ve just returned from a holiday in Malaga. It’s going to take me the next few months to pay for, but it was well worth it. (5 comments)

Good old Friday nights

FRIDAY night used to involve a trip to the takeaway to place the order, a quick nip in the off-licence to get some beer or wine, and a visit to the video store to rent a film.

Could bad boy Michael have been learning and earning?

andy learnignres1 Well done to all those who got the A-levels they needed and have got into the course of their choice at the university they wanted to go to. Sincere bad luck to all those who didn’t quite do as they expected to.

A rebate for roadworks?

ANYONE bleating about the roadworks underway in the centre of Carlisle, or Workington (or anywhere else in the county for that matter) should take a little educational detour.

Want a Big Solution? Have a bit more pride

Do we have a Big Society? Do we have any sort of society? David Cameron’s woolly-headed, touchy-feely, meaningless phrase has suddenly come into focus in the wake of the riots that have hit England. All of a sudden it has become meaningful.

At least the French don’t regard us as WKD

What defines us as Brits? Is it our natural-born ability to cope with constant rain? Our inability to live in a climate that is anything other than mild and ‘not too bad for this time of year’?

Official! 40 is the new 30

What I find most disturbing about turning 40 in five weeks’ time is not my receding hairline or expanding waistline. It’s the fact that I’ve only just got used to being 30.

Remind you of your student days gents?

It's good to see that David Cameron and Boris Johnson have cut short their holidays to come back and see the horrific destruction spreading through our towns and cities. It may remind them of their student days.

Clarkson, sit back and enjoy the view

Those who point out that the oil is going to run out some day, and we can’t go on burning it forever, are regularly denounced by Jeremy Clarkson as ‘eco-mentalists’.

Blot on Carlisle's landscape

Cumbria has many examples of fine architecture that deserve to be protected and preserved. The Central Plaza Hotel in Carlisle isn’t one of them.

Give me a coffee puff!

I've never had a coffee puff but in the interests of supporting local produce and against the interests of my waistline, I’m going to start buying them now.

Kate can now truly become the new people’s princess

I’m sure it’s all entirely coincidental; that I’m reading something into a situation that isn’t really there and that I am being far too cynical. Again.
