England are always going to get a hard time in Australia, particularly with eighty thousand Australian fans cheering against them at the MCG. And Broad will never be forgiven for his failure to walk...

The Oval Test, starting on Thursday, should be a cracker and I bet it won't be over in just two or three days. Australia will fight back to the end and should never be under rated.

I ought to reassure people that the RYL Shop in no way keeps any sort of track record of who buys what. Of course, if it came down to it, we could trawl through and analyse past orders - but we're...

Well, Iamcatbug, if you agree that culling foxes is actually necessary there seem to be three possible ways of doing it:

No, Iamcatbug, my logic says that unless culled there will be too many foxes and that they will become an expensive pest. I'm not aware of urban foxes doing much more than raiding bins - though...
