Spending more of GM HQ's money,

On the back of the user equipment reviews, both forum and reader, should there be a GM Award for Excellence?

Not so much on the basis of 'I've got SC2.5 and I love it' (which I do) but more on the basis of the across the board excellence of service that GoKart has shown.

(I neither have a GoKart, nor have any stake in the company.)

we are looking at introducing an awards issue later in the year and we'd certainly be looking for forum input on nominations/voting

I have to say reading the reports on Go Kart they seem a shoehorn (as our US friends would say) for customer service. Should make an interesting spread and bound to cause a few disputes on here

Not according to the guys on NASN during the ice hockey.

But I don't trust Yank commentators and to be fair your version sounds familiar anyway.

I know Amercians are stoopid and have invented both phrases, which makes it more confusing....

Shoo-in (from too many pub quizes) is from fixed horse races, as in it's a shoo-in, from when animals were shooed into pens...

Shoehorn (from wiki) has 'come to mean the act of coercing or pressuring an individual into a situation which does not leave enough room, either literally or figuratively' ie when the defenders show the attacker one way, which is the only way he can go and where they want him to go....

Although I am as pedantic as the next man, this is boring even me.

Honours even, I'm out.

Or as our fat, plaid trouser wearing friends would say 'Honors even'....
