That's it - the apocalypse is finally upon us

I know I have warned of this a few times in the past, but this time I really have the supporting evidence, as the Ramblers (which used to be called the Ramblers Association, but presumably that was too boojwah, was insufficiently inclusive etc etc) have put out a press release, spotted at ePolitix.com:

"Get Walking Day is the Ramblers' annual celebration of the joy of walking".

OK, with you so far.

"We want to inspire people of all ages to go for a walk on 30th May and, ideally, to continue walking regularly afterwards. Walking is really good for physical, social and emotional well-being".

Unless you are walking back from a funeral, from having been dumped, lost you job etc. However, those are details.

Ok, here it comes:

"No special equipment or training is needed and almost anyone can do it".

See, I was right, wasn't I? And what is more, there is an EDM using much the same form of words, including that stake directed at the heart of anything even vaguely approaching common sense.

Shoot me now. It would be a kindness.

Surely the Gumn must appoint special Walking Instructors to show us how to walk? We're probably doing it the wrong way. I myself walk in a deliberately non-inclusive way.

See David Winnick onna telly?

Along with the egg sucking instructors. All too horribly likely.

Can't say I did. Have I missed much?

How should I walk in an investing-in-people sort of way, I need to know!

Yes, Mr Winnick, while professing loyalty to the (Glaswegian) Speaker, was actually having a right old go at him?

Peut-etre you heard John Humphreys attack on - er interview with - D-Cam? Shameless as usual (JH).

I heard some of the DC interview this morning. I think he did quite well, ATC.
