    Not raised in Parliament by Penny Mordaunt was it?

    " Mordaunt revealed that she had delivered a speech in the House of Commons just before the Easter recess in 2013 on poultry welfare so as to use the word "cock", as a forfeit for a misdemeanour during Naval Reserve training.[23][24] Mordaunt used the word “cock” six times and “lay” or “laid” five times. "

    One hopes she doesn't have a similar bet going that will require her to make reference to the Burmese cats mentioned in the Wiki. They are quite hairy, after all.

    PS: I also see from the Wiki she also worked for President Bush...

    As the piece is essentially an interview with someone from Sharp's it's hardly surprising.

    As Shakespeare once said - 'What a load of wanky nonsense.' The very heart of beer's appeal, for me, is that it is a long drink, meant to be drunk relatively quickly. If I want to sip something reverentially, I'll open a decent red, or have a couple of fingers of 20 yr old malt.
