    The latter is from a Black Mirror episode called The National Anthem.

    Cummings - https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2...ivil-war-cast/ (actually it was Craig Oliver, but who knows who he is?)

    welcome back Sir Quinno, I think the pig reference was the more confusing one, but of course Rory Kinnear is more famous than Craig Oliver (aka Dominic Cummings' deadly rival).

    For anyone "out the loop" Mr Cummings is back in the heart of Government.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Whilst sitting in the beer garden at the Runnymede Hotel the guy sending clouds of cigar smoke our way was Miguel Angel Jiminez.One of my favourite all time golfers.

    I get a certain sense of déjà vu here.

    Great to meet Komakino in the Cross Keys, Covent Garden this evening. A chance conversation at the bar where Pubs Galore was mentioned and that was it!

    Great to meet you and Mrs Ray too - what were the chances of that, eh? Hope you enjoyed your subsequent visit to The Duke after we parted ways.

    I'm slightly ashamed to admit that I had to Google this to discover the JD connection. Just when you thought you had just about all pub quiz music questions nailed........
