Is it ever too late to call off your wedding?

Hola. Hope you are well.

Is it ever too late to call off your wedding? I bring this up because Rory McIlroy (golfer) recently called off his wedding to Caroline Wozniacki (tennis player) after the wedding invites had been sent out.

In his defence the wedding was still 6 months away, which strikes me as a decent amount of time to call off a wedding but what if you get cold feet a week before, a day before, the day of the wedding? Would you call it off or go through with it, let me know if you’ve been in this situation or know someone who’s done it. You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Ps. Has anyone been ditched at the altar or does this only happen on soaps?

As a postscript to this story, in their next tournament after the split, he went on to win his, she got knocked out in the 1st round of the French Open.

Til next time, stay safe!

Im not a property developer

Hola. Hope you are well.

If you live in London there is always some talk about housing and house prices. This was added to recently after Mark Carney the Governor of the Bank of England spoke of his concerns about continuing price rises.

I’m not a property developer, I don’t have a property portfolio, I don’t even own the property I live in, so what I’m about to say might be without foundation (deliberate pun).

From what I can see property prices/renting is so expensive, especially in London is because there’s a lot more people requiring housing than there are available houses, so my first solution would be to build more houses.

The reason the problem is more apparent in London is because a lot of people gravitate to the capital for work. This obviously creates a demand for housing, pushing prices up. This then affects those that aren’t on a big wage, meaning they struggle to live. With this in mind, my second solution would be to encourage investment/industry in other parts of the country so people wouldn’t have to move to london for work. It would also stimulate the economies in areas of the country that need it and more equally distribute the country’s wealth.

As I said at the outset, I’m not an expert on these matters so feel free to agree or disagree. You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

What UKIP are for

Hola. Hope you are well.

It might be wrong but I’m slightly fascinated by UKIP or more pertinently the amount of coverage they get. Despite having no MPs not a day goes by without them being mentioned in the media.

With the majority of our print media leaning towards the right politically, they probably share many of UKIP’s beliefs but at the same time wouldn’t want them taking votes from the Conservatives. So instead of attacking their policies, the papers have turned their focus on some of the individuals in the party. Fortunately for the press they haven’t had to do too much digging to find a UKIP member displaying their ignorance, whether it’s ‘Bongo Bongo Land’ or telling Lenny Henry to move to a ‘black country’.

With the press are fixated on UKIP they don’t appear to have the capacity to scrutinise what the government are doing. For example 13m in this country live in poverty¬† and of those that are in work dissatisfaction reigns, with teachers, the fire brigade, lawyers et al all striking this year. So, perhaps UKIP do have their uses, as a kind of Farage headed trojan horse.

Who do you share your birthday with?

Hola. Hope you are well.

A friend of mine shares her birthday with the Queen.

Another friend shares his with Bob Dylan.

My sister used to share hers with Nelson Mandela.

I share mine with Ian Rush (former Liverpool striker), Dannii Minogue and Shane Ward’s mum Philomena.

Feel free to let me know who you share your birthday with. You can contact me via the comments button or on Twitter @anunknowncomic

*For those unsure who Shayne Ward is, nevermind his mum, he won the second series of The X Factor and should not be confused with Shane Warne the former Aussie cricketer.

Have you read a book since leaving school?

Hola. Hope you are well.

I read a report recently that said 30% of men have not read a book since leaving school.

Instead of focussing on the minority, I’d like to hear from men and women who have read a book since leaving school. If this is you, then you can let me know via the comments button or on Twitter @anunknowncomic You can always mention a book you’ve enjoyed.

Perhaps those men who’ve not read a book since school, could ease themselves back in with this fun book.

Talking of books my friend has written her first ever novel, Berlintoxication. It’s out as an eBook, check it out here.
