It be Thursday…

Today’s show is lovingly sponsored by: Jammy-Lammy Dress Up -by Alex Hahn.

Leigh is in a ranty mood today, especially as it emerged that the Obama administration has publicly expressed concern about the impact of a UK referendum on its future relationship with the EU. Even Business leaders have started to urge Cameron not to ‘risk’ EU membership. Meanwhile, the UK government has urged MPs to back a 1% cap on annual rises in working-age benefits and some tax credits, arguing it is vital to cutting the deficit. In other news, The London Underground is celebrating its 150th anniversary and is the oldest subterranean railway in the world.

Swedish prosecutors have issued international arrest warrants for two Britons suspected of masterminding a smuggling ring involving Chinese garlic. Brazil prepares for  the World Cup and Olympic games next year, free English courses are being offered and prostitutes are signing up. At least 20 prostitutes in the city of Belo Horizonte signed up for the courses and at least 300 are expected to start taking classes. A British teenager who dressed in a giant chicken suit for a protest outside a KFC restaurant said he was punched, tackled and covered in food.
