Ant and Tom have both been away this week and spent lots of money. Ant went to a wedding in Ipswich and ‘needed’ to buy a new car as he was transporting the grandparents of the bride. Tom went to Manchester and spent money on footwear as that was all there was to do as it tipped it down with rain!
The new car topic lead on to a brief history of cars they’ve both owned over the years and the riveting topic of the price of diesel.
The ‘biopic debate’ rumbles on despite having genuine proof from the Oxford Dictionary’s YouTube site.
Other topics include the upcoming Star Wars standalone film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and how it may fit into the universe of the franchise. Inside Out is another film both Ant and Tom have seen and they cover it briefly along with the ups and downs of the recent Disney/Pixar offerings.
Finally they get onto more in the way of current affairs stories while discussing the explosions at the Chinese factory and look into the effects of the chemicals that are claimed to have been spread by the blast. Ant brings a story of a woman being fined more than 400% of the Mars bar she stole from a shop and the moral complications that are associated with it. What are your views on this?

Finally, Tom has a bit of a rant about Jose Mourinho’s treatment of his medical staff. Chelsea were reduced to nine men for a time and drew with Swansea, so he took it out on Dr Eva Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn who were just doing their job.
