I was today years old when I found out that Kellogg’s was an American company. All my life to this point I thought it was British. 

Started as a health food too.

Started as an anti-masturbation grift to bilk the religious.

The "health food" is a revisionist appeal to vegetarianism.

Get a notification of a quote from Limpid and think I better check that quick... Turns out he's just talking about masturbation.

Yeah again I did caveat my bit with saying I think in this case he did it.

Just a general point that somebody not speaking to the police isn't and shouldn't be an indication of guilt

I agree. It isn't an indication of guilt but Its all about perception isn't it? 99% of people are now convinced he's done it as an innocent man doesn't normally stay silent.

There's quite a good TC Boyle novel that's loosely about Kellogg's called 'The Road To Wellville' (also a movie; the book is better but the film does have tits, so swings and roundabouts).

Yeah I’m not saying that in this particular scenario it was the right thing to do, or that this guy didn’t do it. Just a general rule of thumb

Whatever he is drinking looks like flat northern piss to me. If I can see through it it ain’t worth drinking.

Just out of curiosity, where in King's Heath would you go to get a decent pint of bitter these days?

God I would love a decent pint of bitter here in Canada at the moment.

Ian Bailey in West Cork is a very good example of why you should just shut the **** up if someone thinks you've done something bad

In his case I suspect irrespective of his involvement with the case I think he's the kind of narcissistic personality that perversely enjoys being part of the story, even if it's ruined his life.

I wouldn’t, I’d go to Stirchley about 5 minutes away. Leading the way in brum brewery’s at the moment for me, attic brewery, glasshouse, wildcat etc… British Oak usually has a decent selection plus good grub plus up the road you’ve got cotteridge wines which do taster sessions and has the best selection of ales/ciders/ipas etc… in the city. Great little area for good quality grog.

Well exactly, that's kind of my point. If he didn't do it (and I think he did but for argument's sake let's pretend he didn't) then he kind of only has himself to blame because he's never shut up about it so everyone thinks he's done it.

Yeah ... thanks ... I think. Mine was sort of a sort of a nostalgia question. Grew up in 444, but spent my last three years in the UK in Selly Park. So Stirchley back then was sort of a no man's land that had to be passed through. Glad it sounds like it's improved.

But if someone forced you to have a beer ... where in King's Heath?

Stirchley is still rough in parts up towards Lifford Lane but the high street and factory/warehouse bits by the train station have seen a bit of change the last 2 years or so with start up breweries, East Asian restaurants, artisan bakeries/pizza places etc….

Kings Heath wise, if I was forced to then I guess The Station opposite the police station. But then by that point you’re so close to the top end of Moseley where you have The Village, Dark Horse (the old gate) etc…

I've got work vans that need diesel so we can go to breakdowns, but all the local ones have closed due to no fuel.

**** ridiculous.

We should have been taking action on Friday when it was clear we had a problem, yet the government have dithered and delayed and done absolutely **** all. What an absolute circus.
