Bombardier is an OK medium strength beer, nothing special though.

Loved the Alan Beresford B'Stard New Statesman series though!!!

The New Statesman and Yes (Prime) Minister are without question the two greatest political sitcoms ever made, even though Yes Minister started several years before i was born.
What i find intriguing, and slightly worrying, about watching Yes Minister is how little has changed. This is a program that started 32 years ago, and it deals with expenses scandals, press intrusion, banking crises, and any number of other follies which could easily have been lifted from today's headlines.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.....
Reassuriing, isn't it?

That's it, cleared up after John's escape bash last night.
One koala was complaining about a terrible draught - I was concerned a barrel had gone off until I notice John's new entrance way. It is hidden behind the bar, and someone had forgotten to put the crates back after John's spectacular entrance last night....

Now for Julie's bash tonight.
Loads of Belgian beers in stock, only Belgian chocolate on sale, what else is needed?? Oh yes, all the waitresses are dressed in finest Flemish lace thingies...
Sorry Mike, no German beer will be served tonight, nor will there be any English or American beers either. (As I was politely informed by the koala that served me a few minutes ago when I order a Greene King IPA)



Didn't have beer last night... A lot of cocktails though. I got up with a splitting headache this morning but it was worth it! I had a great time. I missed the kids though this weekend. They're coming back this evening, I'm glad...

Just cracked it open and i agree. Drinkable but otherwise indistinct.

Julie,
So it was you on the cocktails - one of the koala commented on the amount of ice that was consumed last night. Not only the ice, but also the amount of spirits to go with them. Still he was very glad to have served you, and your party, and to have helped you enjoy it all the more.

(Sorry about the headache - we won't tell anyone how you really got it)

Time to get the larger, port and sherry out for lunch.

Mike will need some sustenance soon and I am sure Chris is looking forwards to a glass of vintage port.

I'll pass on the "larger" but if I may presume upon your hospitality, a light Amontillado will do nicely for the aperitif, I think perhaps a glass of Chardonnay would suit the meal, and maybe a chilled Chenin Blanc for dessert. And of course a Grahams 2000 with the cheeseboard, while the Ladies retire to the Drawing room.

All most civilised, and thanks for the invite John :-)

Haven´t got much sleep last night.
Yawn.

Thank you very much.
I´d rather like to be with you sitting in a pub right now.

Yes, that would be rather nice wouldn't it. London Pubs with decent lager and beer are very convivial places, and most of them have reasonably priced food as well.

Best I can do at the moment is this live view of Tower Bridge, close to your last visit. Tower Bridge

Aldgate pubs

Looks like the import of food and various beers and spirits is going down well.
