Opinion Sausage rolls - they have their own unique place in Norwich City AGM folklore. Picture: Archant Archant It’s annual general meeting time but what will we learn from 2018’s effort? Norwich City correspondent MICHAEL BAILEY wonders aloud… Sporting director Stuart Webber will still have plenty of Norwich City questions to answer - but surely this year they will come with a significant degree of optimism? Picture: Denise Bradley1 – Taking Norfolk’s optimism temperature It has taken years of work to get the Norwich City annual general meeting to where it is now – something that for some, generally sends a shudder down the spine.Not many clubs do it the way the Canaries do – the official business, followed by an open question and answer session that has both helped build careers and reputations, and torn them down. Quite clearly, Glenn Roeder’s was never the same again.I remember asking Jez Moxey two years ago – … [Read more...] about Michael Bailey: Sales, signings, sausage rolls and Stone – six things we might learn from Canaries’ AGM
Everyone say sausage keep it going
SO, the six Grenfell Tower skanks have been released from custody by the Metropolitan Police. These are the South Londoners who thought burning a cardboard effigy of Grenfell Tower in their back garden was a hoot. The tower even had screaming victims drawn in the windows. Most normal people would think this a foul thing to do and not remotely funny. But what happened next wasn’t funny, either. The coppers got themselves involved, clearly untaxed by the low level of crime in the city, especially knife crime. They arrested the six men. And here’s the point — an important point and a rather scary point. They arrested them without knowing what crime had been committed. In other words, for effectively no reason. They arrested them THEN tried to think what they could charge them with. That is a very dangerous precedent indeed and, to my mind, a perversion of the law. So serious a perversion that I think it demands the resignation of Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan … [Read more...] about Grenfell effigy joke wasn’t funny — but making it a crime for the thought police sets a dangerous precedent

News / UK and world by Press Association June 23, 2018, 10:54 am FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Daily newsletter A family has been left “heartbroken” after two treasured pets died from suspected poisoning in the space of a month. Maya Mellor, of Haydn Road, Liverpool, said she believes both Deadpool the cat and Honey the Yorkshire Terrier, who vomited and suffered seizures, were deliberately targeted. The mother-of-two said she was told by RSPCA investigators they were looking at the possibility that poison-laced sausages were involved. Ms Mellor 27, said a number of pets have died in suspicious circumstances or gone missing recently in the area, near Yewtree cemetery, adding shortly before Honey died last month the body of a stray cat was found near the bottom of her garden. Ms Mellor, who works for an eco-friendly cleaning company, told the Press Association she is so shaken she is looking to move from her home of five years … [Read more...] about Family heartbroken after pets ‘killed with poison sausages’
AS anyone who’s seen a Royal Variety Performance will testify, it’s not the left-wing crackpots and republicans who are the biggest threat to the monarchy. It’s those creeps who claim to love the Queen the most. Creative types, often, who need to express their admiration through the medium of song and dance and an Asian drumming accompaniment. So you end up, on Saturday night, with Tom Jones doing a bhangra version of It’s Not Unusual, which, if you didn’t see it, is about as easy on the ear as the next fight in a Cardiff balti house. If you did, then seriously well done. You made it through the first ten minutes of The Queen’s Birthday Party live from the Albert Hall. A Zoe Ball-hosted event which, straight off the bat, I have to say, was far from being the worst royal entertainment show ever. How could it be when the diamond jubilee flotilla is still so fresh in the memory? It’s still the oddest thing I’ve watched this year, though, and … [Read more...] about Craig, Kylie, Shaggy and Sting… must be better way to say: ‘Happy 92nd birthday, Your Majesty’
