Quotes

...to step in at the last minute to replace an injured player and although he only hit the ball three or four times, he wrote in his diary that he was "absolutely dippy about polo, which in my opinion is the best game in the world." The game has been passed on through generations and is still played by British royalty and aristocracy
Mr Dudley, who is also deputy leader of the Royal Borough, said: "It is bitterly disappointing that after communication with National Grid - starting in May 2013 - we have been told it would take an unprecedented 19-and-a-half months to achieve a low pressure gas connection."
Chairman Malcolm Leach, the proprietor of the town's J Manley Gallery, said: "The rubbish on the bridge at night includes half-eaten kebabs, empty cartons and boxes. It is pretty bad. We have a problem."
He concludes the poem by saying that "Thought would destroy their paradise. No more; where ignorance is bliss, tis folly to be wise." Is adult life so miserable while childhood is so blissful? Perhaps the glue of ignorance lies somewhere in between
