They got no cowin’ Bovril!
Lord, I feel sorry for those poor folk in Birmingham. Yesterday at work, I learned that the popular beef drink Bovril has been withdrawn from sale due to a quality issue. For the last three weeks or so, you simply cannot get it anywhere, and customers have asking when it's going to be coming back.

Anyone who has watched Jasper Carrott will be aware of the fact that Bovril seems to be a Birmingham drink - especially among football supporters! I just wonder how the hell they are are surviving up there!

Judging by that clap of thunder that's just gone off here, it sounds like Alexandra Palace has just been hit. A little too close for comfort!
