John Gibson: Don’t dunk and that’s an order

Have your say

Are you a dunker? Dip your biscuits in your tea? Sprinkle Parmesan on your pasta? Well, make the most of it because the EU, taking authority to the limit, has other high-falutin’ ideas.

The patter in political circles is that key documents relating to Alex Salmond’s jaunt to the Ryder Cup last year in Chicago, costing a bomb, have been destroyed by Scottish Government officials.

This is Bonnie Tyler, the UK’s rep in the Eurovision Song Contest, talking before the event: “I’m practising a lot by singing round the house but I won’t beat myself up if I don’t win. The pinnacle of my career was being nominated for a Grammy and being the first girl to go into the British album charts at No1.” Have no fear, Bonnie, you were never going to be as much of an embarrassment as the Hump last year. But you went close.
