    Chattering Class: What you’re all on about

    Is a flat white really any different from a latte and does anyone care?

    Good questions, @heidistephens, and not really, no

    Supposed “perfect property” is two miles from supermarket, 10 miles from beach and walking distance to pub

    But what if you fancy a Big Mac?

    MC men leave cafetieres and “difficult” washing up objects un-dealt with in the sink

    So they do, @Penandspoon; this is worthy of some investigation

    Homemade cheese is apparently the next foodie trend

    Enough

    Buying something in John Lewis but using a Poundland bag, as @whoismatthew did

    How achingly now

    Middlesborough primary school bans northern phrases such as “nowt” and “yous”

    MCs are nervously saying nowt about this

    Motorway sign spotted by @babelmonk: “Take your litter home, other people do”

    Marvellously passive aggressive

    Harris & Hoole “artisan” coffee shop controlled by Tesco

    Freaking us all out big time

    Confidently showing used train/bus tickets

    As @DrZeds says: a great sport alas now largely spoiled by technology

    “Uni”

    No. It's “university” (quite so, @clarebtweets)

    Leave the cafetiere in the sink. If he wants another cup of coffee, he'll have to wash it. Make your own coffee in a jug. Or buy your own cafetiere.

    'Nowt' is actually spelt 'nought' and is a perfectly acceptable word.
