    First sighting of emerging Flants in West London by me.

    Annoyingly they were coming out en masse from underneath my kitchen units... Expecting a nightmare when I return home tonight.

    The Conservative Party being destroyed option shows you how many Tory members are really Brexit Party supporters.

    I wondered that from that mental graph yesterday - it suggests that the party is wildly out of touch with it's members (like Labour I guess) and that can't have just happened through time with its long serving members.

    Is there any evidence of entryism of the Tory party I wonder. I guess you can't tell easily tell without published numbers..

    I'm actually surprised Johnson is blowing his load in a race now

    I've always imagined that he wants to have held the job title, rather than actually wanting to do the job. Name on the trophy, stick it out for a respectable length of time, job done.

    If he misses out this time, the next time will be the third time running he'll have had a go. By that point, and in a very changed landscape, he could start to look old.

    That does sound annoying.
    It's like they have no conviction in their use case- they've put something in their car they believe to be dangerous when used, so instead of stopping you use it they ought to remove it.

    Are you ok at the end of your career? Assuming you avoid any work related injury / catastrophe and retire happily at a time of your choosing, is your body ok?

    That looks intimidating :) Ours put a plywood floor (which was then tanked) over the joists, onto which went the wet room tray, onto which went the tiles if that's any use. The drain position in the plywood was transferred from the tray

    I'm absolutely not an expert on bathrooms, or building and you're already far beyond my comfort zone so you may already know this. We had our shower done recently, and the our builder did something that I hadn't heard of before and thought was useful.

    We put a thick plastic shower tray down, with integral drain onto which the tiles went. However, before the tray went down, the builder painted the entire shower area (carcass made with plywood) with a thick layer of swimming pool tanking paint - the idea being that even if the tiles later leaked, the wood would be protected and won't rot / leak. Thought it was a good idea, and pretty easy to do.

    Cue someone telling me that this was a disastrous thing to do and my house will rot down...

    That's the holy grail of all policing isn't it? Come down on everyone who breaks the law, leave everyone else well alone.

    Astonishing no one has tried it before.

    I may have my dates confused . I think I had had a cassette of tigermilk c.1998. That re-release was a big deal to us at the time :)
