Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

I apologise for linking to the Mail, but...

...I heard this on the radio yesterday, and it was too good not to share...

Bob Geldof - the man who, let's not forget, named his daughters "Peaches" and "Fifi Trixibelle" - thinks his new grandson's name is rubbish*, doesn't know how to pronounce it, and wishes he's been called Leonard instead.

It is critical that we show support for our leaders when they stand for what is right, not only for what is easy:
