According to the figures Mr Hunt presented, it would cost £30k for each person to become effectively 're-homed' so to speak. There are, according to Shelter, roughly 320,000 homeless people in the UK, the world's fifth-richest country. That amounts to £9.6bn. How much should our wonderful new leader put towards this?

Just received my first jury summons. Who's done it, what should I expect?
Obviously varies case by case but anything to note?
I'm quite excited by it, actually.

Is the face of the new £50 note. Very nice touch from the BoE that. A great man I'm sure we can all agree.

Part #673264 of the TWTD Moral Maze...
Should thinking of someone else while being intimate with your partner be considered cheating?
Now, the reason I ask this is that there is a lovely lady I work with who may be having a 'psychic affair' with yours truly. I don't want to cause any harm to her relationship by continuing to be a sexy distraction. For all I know, this sexual dissonance has already caused major rows.
I know I've thought about a lot of different things when 'on the job', like what to have for dinner, what I really should have said in that meeting, etc. But none of those things would be considered being unfaithful.
Am I wrong to be concerned?

That was a scary ten minutes or so. Is everyone ok? Has anything drastic happened during downtime?
I had a kinder bueno.

Mother has just been quoted £1,200 to have her 2x2m bathroom fitted out. That seems excessive, doesn't it? It's in Lowestoft for context, and she wants the new bath, sink etc plumbed in, about half the bathroom tiled and a new floor laid.
Over a grand for a two-day, one-man job is a bit much, innit? Or am I out of touch?
Guidance welcome, as are any recommendations...

No log book or paperwork, needs to be gone today or tomorrow.
No tyre-kickers or time-wasters.

Have we ever done this? Was having a chinwag with a ruminant mate of mine and he reckons he's a bit like Dennis Wise. Annoying little barsteward but you can't fault the quality...
Any more for any more?
I'll say Keno's had a bit of the Adeyemi about him recently, if you know what I mean.

"The Brexit party is to launch a formal legal challenge against the result of this month’s Peterborough byelection, where it was narrowly beaten by Labour, alleging that allegations of corruption connected to postal votes need to be investigated."
Uncle Nige sez:
"I know people will say, ‘Oh, but it’s sour grapes.’ It isn’t.
Actually, as far as I’m concerned, this is about a lot more than Peterborough. It is about a system that is wide open to corruption, to intimidation, to bribery, to abuse on a whole number of levels. I have mentioned this a number of times in the past."
What do they want, another byelection?

TWTD, I need your help.
Making a curry tonight but wondering whether to make rice, daal or rice AND daal. How many starches is it permissible to have on one plate? Then there is the issue of naan or no naan.
Ditch the daal in favour of a veggie side? Or lose the long grain?

As Banksy has welshed on his duty to provide TWTD with its insect of the day, looks like it's down to dear old footers to pick up the slack!
Now, this is my first time doing this so please bear with me as we all make mistakes and I'm no insect expert.
Today's insect.... the proboscis monkey

Haven't had one of these in a while, and what could be better than bonding over a nice bit of nosh?!
So TWTD, what's on your plate this dreary Sunday?
Two of my friends got engaged on Friday so the celebrations have continued all weekend here at the footers household. This evening I'm rustling up lambs steaks, pomme puree, mustard-ed leeks and roast garlic for the celebration congregation.
No afters planned though.

Given the relative lull after all that grief and strife, thought I might brighten the board up with summat a little light-hearted.
Here is a picture of myself (B1) and a colleague (B2) as the bananas in pyjamas. What do y'all reckon? And have YOU ever dressed up as a fruit? Or is a banana a legume? I forget. Anyway, enjoy..

... some advice please.
I'm going to plant some more herbs today to go along with my successful parsley plants. Bearing in mind everything I touch suddenly becomes very, very ill (animal, vegetable and, incredibly, mineral), which herbs are the least prima donnaish?
Ideally I would like to grow some basil and others I can use regularly in the kitchen.
