The Welwyn-Hatfield Times 24 needs a good editor.

Restless underpants is no laughing matter.

What exactly does one park in half a parking space?

This is undoubtedly a good thing, but feel free to spare me further updates.

Now if Madonna had said that....that would've been something.

I don't get the underpants thing ... is he referring to having them in a twist?

Omni, this is just a stab-in-the-dark, but I think he might be referring to briefs. Failing that, we'll probably never know.

From now on when Mrs. Layzee is trying to get my arse off of the couch I'll just tell her that I'm resting my underpants.

Ah, briefs. Should have thought of that.

Rest your underpants in a resting room. Tired jockeys should not ride.

At least they're not flapping in a stiff breeze.

Well, I have a ‘world first exclusive’ for you. I was perplexed enough by the underpants remark to email the councillor in question and he was good enough to provide an answer:

“I made the remark as a measure of my exasperation that time and again we have to approve developments which create parking problems because we have to set parking standards that cannot recognise the pressures in some parts of the Borough. The origin of my saying is derived from the TV show Only Fools and Horses where one of the characters says 'the world is your lobster' in other words getting a well-used phrase slightly wrong.”

More importantly, he assures me that: “my underpants are in full working order and prepared to repel all boarders.”
