    Subject was discussed on Radio 2 today on the Jeremy Vine show ( I was only listening cos somebody wasa depping for him, can't stand the prat) and apparently it's all down to a major biccy factory in the North West being buggered up by the recent floods.

    I presume they can't make ginger nuts dahn sarf; well it's cos they're 'ard innit?
    Much less involved.....

    I first noticed they were gone in my Lidl, they have become my main dunking biscuit then saw they'd gone from two Tescos - it is a far more important issue than that which Vine usually covers! (dislike him as well, he is also disapproving of motorcycles so please do join Scriv, Chilly and me...)

    No shortage of nuts over here................. ginger, brunette, blond or otherwise.

    When in danger or in doubt, run in circles scream and shout!

    A common mistake made when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    What is Radio 2? I thought discussions meant Radio 4.
