    despite the fact that the Gieves and Hawkes guy is almost certainly constantly firing Plaster of Paris nose missiles.

    Cocaine is a drug taken by the younger demographic.

    In the UK in 2017-2018, 2.6% of people aged 16-59 took powdered cocaine (as opposed to crack cocaine, the more potent variant of the drug, which was taken by 0.1% of the population in the same period), up from 2.4% in 2013-2014, according to Home Office figures.

    More young people are taking cocaine than ever before: 6% of 16- to 24-year-olds have tried it, despite the fact that, overall, fewer young people take drugs in general. It is also likely that Home Office figures, which often exclude students, prisoners and homeless people, underestimate cocaine use because those groups typically have above-average illegal drug use.

    There's another comet that's appeared, the snappily titled Comet Neowise C/2020 F3. It's not the one earlier in the year that fizzled out, but it looks like it's going to be too close to the Sun to be observed from London. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    I haven't got a braking surface either, it doesn't work very well, but helps if you're going down a steep drop off-road or something.

    Not a steamroller, but I use a long drop bmx brake on a 700c frame with 650b wheels.

    I've some of the Bontrager 26.0 bars, but I don't have a box, unfortunately.

    Hired, corporate E-scooters to be legalised for road use, but privately owned ones won't.

    Times Radio: sounds a lot like the old Radio 5 before it turned into a barrage of endless drivel.
