This might not have taken root in Europe yet, but here in the US trans women are dominating high school sports in some disciplines in some (mostly north-eastern) states, and I think that will be the most visible example of crossover competitors, rather than a blonde woman playing on a men's team.

That's an interesting slant on it, with all this LGBT equality etc. Could the likes of, say, Gregor Buchanan say he identifies himself as a woman and get called up to the Women's national team?

Why would anyone want hard yoke? That's called a ****ing omelette mate.

No it's not, it's called an overcooked fried egg.

Both of which are completely unnecessary additions. 

This is where you're wrong as this potato farl was leavened in some way - making it less dense and better at soaking up the flavours around it than the bog-standard potato scone. That some of the butter melted and seeped out of the packet raised the score of the farl and the breakfast as a whole to a new level. 

Nothing wrong at all with the quality of the meat; while the beastly obsession with runny yolks has already been dealt with. Next.

That whole breakfast looks bog-standard mate. Just wait till you discover a Premier Inn buffet, it will revolutionise your life :)

Grilled tomatoes are awful but otherwise this is spot on. 'Farls' are especially bad.

I like a grilled tomato and a few 'properly' cooked mushrooms, they're the perfect addition to a cooked breakfast, and even for things like a good steak and chips at dinner time they also go down a treat. Those who would screw their nose up at these probably wouldn't ever have had them cooked properly.

Mushrooms should always be cleaned and dried, and cooked with butter, a drop of olive oil, pinch of salt and a small squeeze of fresh lemon to taste.

Tomatoes - although I say grilled, they're best roasted for the same length of time as sausages. Best cut in half, with some salt and cracked black pepper and a small drizzle of olive oil.

What does your attraction to her, or her hair colour, have to do with the matter?

A lot, really. As a really good looking female refereeing the game could get a bit of special treatment from the fans, who may be a bit more forgiving towards her for any errors which she may make, in comparison to a female who looked like a dug chewing a wasp, who may not be cut any slack at all.

It's a bit of a game-changer if you ask me. It is also the pre-cursor for female players playing in the men's game.
