One hundred and eighty!
As you no doubt lead very busy lives, this press statement from the Liberal Democrats last week may have escaped your attention:
Belated recognition for darts welcome - RussellDon't mock. Any 'sport' in which fat, middle-aged men can (and usually do) excel is to be welcomed in my view.
Bob Russell, Liberal Democrat MP for Colchester, today welcomed Darts' recognition by all the Sports Councils in the UK as a sport. Mr Russell, who has long campaigned for today's change, said:
"This is great news for everyone involved in the sport, who have campaigned for a great many years to get the recognition the game deserves."
