  3. I voted with Bryan. It's so much easier this way, not having to think for myself, head palpably smaller ...

  4. Bryan is a hypocrite he wont be slumming it with the rest of us as the back anyway.

    The airline desks know not to upset journalists so they are more likely to get upgrades. I bet Bryan makes a point in letting them know.

  5. Bastard yes, hypocrite never. The great man never for a moment indicated he'd be anywhere near us proles. Fearlessly filtering out the fat reclining in his frippery in First ... I only hope I can get that belt round me next time.

  7. Sadly, in America, one often sees folks with girths so great they cannot get the belt around their bellies. I sat next to one woman once who just gave up. We both knew a plane crash was the least of her worries.

  8. Self knowledge is a useful thing, Bryan.

  9. Cyril Smith turned in his grave last night.
    Personally I would go one step further and tax the ugly sods as well.
    If both fat and ugly, you don't even get up the steps.
    Why should I have to share a flight with a bunch of fat ugly people, or Glaswegians as they are sometimes known.

  10. Yup, crated and weighted and in the hold. Apart from anything else, their flatulence can be astounding.
