Charities that I would definitely support (if they existed)

The Royal Society for the Protection of The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds
A charitable organisation working to promote the conservation and protection of ornithologists, birdwatchers and people who-liked-the-idea-of-supporting-an-environmental-charity-and-decided-to-choose-this-one alike. Their aims are achieved through awareness campaigns (there are only 300 breeding pairs of Twitchers left in East Anglia!), operating reserves (in which they can, in turn, operate reserves for avians) and raising money through the sale of themed products (the highlight of the online store being a clock that chimes with the sound of a different orinithologist each hour).

Extreme Waiting

Do you think you could deliver food at 30, 000 feet?
While moving at 300 kilometres per hour?
Then perhaps you'd like to consider becoming a member of cabin crew
an extreme waiter.

Coming soon to a cabinet near you...

I've recently discovered a new genre of film; the political rom-com. Much like conventional rom-coms they feature contrived narratives and bumbling Brits who seem to live exclusively in London. However, once any of the characters says anything compromising, they assemble a press conference and immediately apologise, explaining that they will 'choose words more carefully' in the future.

"When David met Nick"

Can two politicians sleep with together, and still look each other in the eyes in the morning?

"How to Lose a No Confidence Vote in 10 days"

One of them is lying. The other is lying down.

If those don't interest you, there are still plenty to choose from; Theresa May's Diary, Four recessions and a by-election or, if you're a fan of cartography, Notting Hill (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea).
