Oro: only one...

Further to my comment to my post below this one re needing a gold, Phillips Idowu duely delivered and helped our standing with the only gold won in the 12th IAAF World Indoor Championships in Valencia making the GREAT BRITAIN & N.I. (GBR) finishing position of 4th in the medal table far more respectable; by this in no way do I mean to belittle the performance of the team to get four silvers. Phillips' triple jump was 'no less than 11cm further than the mark set by Jonathan Edwards in 1998' and to put that in perspective:

"Idowu made the fifth longest indoor jump of all time and set a new British indoor record to win with 17.75m"

"Oh my goodness"...and the ease of the style and his landing makes it look like he could go much further! Watch it from the video link HERE on the BBC.

Span - I know this is a bit cheeky but your reply to my post on 'The Budget' made me laugh out loud - especially as I read it after working on a budget report from the moment Darling sat down until just after six - with a short break to check out the posters thoughts on it.

I'd be surprised if there is a reaction, most people are having a good time taking a pop at the Labour party.

From what I can tell it's really a nothing budget, the only thing is the changes to IHT and CGT which I assume is what you've been up to...

"pop at the Labour party"?...why would they do that?...hahahaha
