    What are you reading at the moment?

    My biggest complaint is the quality - or lack thereof - of the transcription; a book is proofread before going to print, but it doesn't appear that Kindle copies are. One book I attempted to read was so riddled with errors that it was unreadable.

    You can close the voting for the 'Euphemism of the Century' Award - we have a winner: 'Brexit is a complete cluster shambles' - Layla Moran (Lib Dem MP)

    Boris Johnson dismisses Brexit claims of Jaguar Land Rover boss Former foreign secretary claims he knows more about car making than Ralf Speth Johnson served as foreign secretary from July 2016 until July last year. He has not served in transport roles in central government although, as mayor of London from 2008 to 2016, he had responsibility for transport in the capital. Speth, on the other hand, has more than 30 years’ automotive industry experience, after starting out working for BMW in his native Germany. He worked for BMW for 20 years and also had a stint as director of production for Ford’s luxury car brands. He joined JLR in February 2010 as chief executive, joining the board of Tata Motors at the same time. He also has a doctorate in engineering and is a professor at the University of Warwick.

    What grinds my gears...

    I suppose it depends on how you define being African. Geographically it clearly is but ethnically and culturally it is Arab. The fox is quite correct about the Berbers, though; genetically, their presence can be traced back to Neolithic times and historically inhabited land all over North Africa and as far South as the Niger.

    I just couldn't get on with Kindle at all. I tried it when the Book-Burner General banned me from buying any more books until I got rid of some (Yeah, like that was going to happen - I just moved some to the attic ). For some reason, my idea of putting a big shed on the lawn to act as a library was met with substantial resistance...
