    Britons cut meat-eating by 17% [Poll]

    Pretty much the same. I used to be a QA manager in a meat processing plant - still have some contacts there! Had a cracking rib-eye a couple of nights ago... A friend dropped round a couple of kilos of venison yesterday too, but it's frozen, so I guess I'll have to eat it all in one sitting!

    Panic Buying

    That would work really well with my bike (that I use for essential work daily). 14.5l tank - about £22 to fill it. What do I do with the rest - just flush it down the drain?

    Lager, NOT larger!
