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.

We end with Leigh trying to work out how much he could charge to conduct weddings and funerals with his new found “powers” as a reverent. Jordan Cobb jumped into river ‘over £100 bet’ – possible Darwin Award?

DB542 – Catching Up With Uncle Pete, Smelly Wives, and Belly Jungles

It be Tuesday…

Today’s show is lovingly sponsored by: PB Trowel Trades.

Uncle Pete and Leigh sit down to have a good old catch up. But as always we quickly start talking about overly ambitious ideas…

What you don’t want to do is spend Christmas driving around Bristol with food poisoning. Meanwhile, New Years’ resolutions and thw whole concept of new years’ in general are foolish ideas. BBC Breakfast last year were talking about Blue Monday. 20 Questions game to work out Pete’s new BIG project. Leigh decides that he and Uncle Pete should team up to write a self-help book to “help and support” people who want to get motivated. Leigh reckons all the selfhelp books just tell you to write lists – and if Charles McFall & Mordant can do it with Success Freaks, why can’t we? Leigh becomes a reverent live on air.
