General Discussion / Re: Ryanair - Flowers

My thoughts do not represent those of Ryanair, but if you don't give it water to ensure it doesn't contain any liquid (I have even had linseed oil putty taken from me) and check that it fits the carry-on baggage size restrictions, then your main concern would be the other cases getting jammed along and on top of it in the overhead luggage.
For the price of an extra one way ticket, could you put it on the seat next to you as well as have a two carry on bags?  Just a thought before they change the rules to ensure that tickets are accompanied by passengers that must buy refreshments ...

If I were you I would ask Ryanair this question - as I recall they have an online 'chat' available on their site, and they should be able to answer you instantly. Probably you would want to carry the wreath as hand luggage (or pack it very carefully).

My favourite story concerning Boris.
His father looks very much like Boris and is an avid cyclist.
One day he was cycling up Whitehall when a voice from the pavement shouted "Boris, you're a total wanker!"
Without a moment's pause he shouted back "I think it's my son you're looking for"

‘Assassin in the court’ I like that!
I know it’s been appropriated by ‘Men In Black’ but maybe the title ‘Boris The Animal’ might  equally  be applied to this one!

Thing is at the time Boris “the buffoon” was an affable character secretly liked by many who would never say as much openly. I think it says it all (if true) where it states in Wiki that his earliest recorded ambition was to be “world king”. His true colours are now there for all to see and the “court jester” has become the “court assassin”. Despite this I think there are many in the UK that will never see him as anything other than “Mr nice guy”. If Trump can become president, then heaven forbid – PM Boris Johnson!

I think I'd only have one wish, and it would be that Boris Johnson had never been born.

I have a visceral hatred for the cynical self-centred calculation which this oaf computed. He had penned jokey rubbish pieces about bendy bananas before 2000 - knowing that he was making stuff up just to poke fun at the EU - but that could be forgiven as 'clickbait'.

He knew that Cameron was finished, and he wanted his job - that's all. As ex Mayor of London he knew that he was popularly perceived as 'the voice of the City' - and by extension the voice of 'business' (oh, what a joke - he ended up saying f*ck business when his selfish ambitions started to founder). But (IMO) Johnson 'reassured' doubtful leave voters that 'project fear' was just that.

I think Johnson was far more important than Farage as a 'persuader'. Farage we all knew was a long-time utterly convinced anti-european, what you saw was what you'd get. Farage (IMO) is not dishonest in his position - (we'll overlook election overspending for now, but it's notable that Farage isn't yet fingered in UK investigations).

The thing is, irrespective of illegalities in funding, and Facebook machinations, if the yellow haired one hadn't thrown his weight behind Brexit we wouldn't have it. He's an absolute b*stard - and it does seem that the Conservative MPs have recognised this.

Hunt is doing pretty well as Foreign Sec isn't he! My tip for the next Tory leader.
