Britons Still Dirty

"Nearly a fifth of Britons fail to change their sheets at least one a month, startling new figures suggest." (This news is startling only if you don't recall that a) this is an annual feature and b) it is a well-established fact that Britons are the most verminous, filth-encrusted hominids to roam the earth and that they recoil from the idea of washing up even more quickly than they do from the glint of a blade wielded with menacing intent which, to be fair, they are probably desensitized to by now. )

I have to say, sheet changing has only become important to me as I've aged. Now I do it once a week, but previously I was less assiduous. I think your tolerance for stewing in your own effluvia tapers out as you grow older.

I think Britain just has a higher number of lazy tabloid hacks willing to publish PR stunts as news.
"The research, commissioned for the home retailer Dunelm Mill…"

@questingbeast Can't it be both?

@riotnrrd I'll consider your point later: my pillowcase is talking at the moment.

I think the your fixation on knifecrime is drawing laughs away from the rampant pedophilia.

@blergh UK is the new Belgium.

@My Number Is My Address They spell it "paedophilia" over there. I'm not sure whether that makes it sound dirtier.
