    I agree about the photo, the one on your blog is more approachable and up to date.

    I know I need to do that - but bizarrely while there are quite a few new photos - there are often copyright issues and I need to find the time to have a proper mugshot done!

    I grew up in New Zealand, and I've never heard the expression "fighting your corner" before - it sounds a bit strange to me. I would have expected "fighting in your corner".

    When I hear "fighting your corner", I immediately think "why does my corner need to be fought? Has it done something wrong?"

    I'm not saying it's wrong, it's just an expression I've never heard before.
    You're spelling is effecting me so much. Im trying not to be phased by it but your all making me loose my mind on mass!! My head is loosing it's hair. I'm going to take myself off the electoral role like I should of done ages ago and move to the Caribean. I already brought my plane ticket, all be it a refundable 1.

    'Consumer revenge' always seemed a bit combative, but then so does 'fighting'.
    Consumer champion is about right.
