5.0 out of 5 stars Putting the smut into a classic childrens' toy, 17 Dec. 2014
What a laugh! This is perfect for a night out on the lash with my leery mates. A great advert for what we're hoping for as we drunkenly drool at far more sensible women.
However, it does have its downsides. My kid, who is a big fan of the plastic bricks, caused much embarrassment by telling his female teacher that he was hoping for legover for Christmas. It does make you question who the FCUK tries to inject the sordid into most kids dream Christmas present though. I imagine Lego won't be too happy and are likely to say C U iN courT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, if puzzling, 15 Dec. 2014
Given that French Connection have already been done by Mars for copyright infringement, this is a bold, some might say foolhardy move. But I say go for it - after all, school boys like to snicker about knickers, so it is clearly a genius word play. So long as Mars don't say CU iN courT, they should be OK. If they do, French Connection can say FCUK off to more cash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are they saying a clothing store is a front for drug running?, 13 Dec. 2014
Another shocker from French Connection, associating a leading rival high street clothing store with drugs. I'm sure Jack Wills will be fast off the mark to say You CNUT say that. Is this a plot to destroy the reputation of competitors and demean their trademarks?

1.0 out of 5 stars I can't imagine anything worse than this, 12 Dec. 2014
Girls are so different from boys sometimes. I can't imagine anything worse than this... but it'll clearly make a six year old I know very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there no logo they won't rip off, 12 Dec. 2014
Top marks to French Connection for denigrating a rival high street brand with such aplomb. They really are masters in this - I just hope that Gap don't respond by saying "C U in Court." Or perhaps Gap will respond with their own range denigrating French Connection for being hypocrites. Or CNUTs as a good friend might put it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A soldiers view of war, 14 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Human Kind, The (Paperback)
A beautiful set of vignettes from World War Two told by a master writer. Observational and understated, they really made me feel like I was there. Alexander Baron deserves a much higher literary standing - his writing merits it.

2.0 out of 5 stars this comes as a bitter disappointment. It is Jack White going through the motions, 14 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Lazaretto (Audio CD)
A Dud from Jack White

After the stellar heights of his previous effort, this comes as a bitter disappointment. It is Jack White going through the motions, half-heartedly picking up some of his best tricks of the past, but with no real passion or enthusiasm. At times it really feels like he is just going through the motions, and when he begins to bore himself he throws in a quick flourish to disrupt the rhythm. This has gone onto CD storage rack, I suspect it will never leave it.
