08:21 pm - At last ...
Finally, South Africa have put England out of their (and our) misery in the World Cup (cricket, that is). I was getting a bit tired of the unrealistically optimistic things that the English kept spouting to the press ... "oh yes, we just need to turn around and win the next 5 matches in a row ... and we'll have won the World Cup !" They kept referring to the turn-around they managed in a meaningless series in Australia earlier in the year, but simply don't seem to have realised - Australia just weren't trying that hard back then. Now they are, and fortunately, so were South Africa. They completely thrashed England this time - England all out for 154; South Africa made the target in less than 20 overs - and hopefully that'll keep the English players a little quieter for a while (... who am I kidding, now we get the endless explanations of what went wrong, how they can do better next time and how it wasn't all that bad really. Bah).

Does this mean that they have to give back their MBEs?

(I was slightly disappointed that our head of state didn't see fit to award our 5-0 test winning team a set of MBEs when we won the Ashes back. It would almost make you think that she wasn't completely Australian.)

Oh, it's OK. They got lunch with Little Johnny.
