Imperial Tobacco factory closure
That's awful. We didn't work at the factory, but it held the designated emergency dentist for our area. It's very sad to see it all close, they were the only firm in Nottingham on 24-hour production at the time. They ought to stay put. The council should give them a couple of bob as a sweetener. Smoking might kill you, but so what? All hobbies kill you in some way or another.

England’s chances in Euro 2016
If we've learned one thing over the years it's not to expect anything from the England football team. They're all knackered after a hard season, whereas if you look at Germany, they don't play in the winter and play far less matches than we do. They'll go and win it again. On penalties probably.

Donald Trump becoming next US President
No. Clinton will. No-one in their right mind would vote for him. But then again, as a nation the Americans can be very blinkered. There's that statistic about how only 9% of them ever travel abroad, though to be fair to them, that's because it's such a big land mass. Anyway, no-one wants to see him in power.
