  14. Wives are not only soulmates of male partners in family lives, but also their wingmans in their own businesses. So whenever wives lovingly ask for salaries, men need to bolt to their wallets unhesitantly. This is always a touching act of men for the women they love.

    thank you very much. I'm a Brazilian citizen from Sao Paulo, I found this channel by chance and I loved it. Sorry if there are mistakes in my writing, I'm learning English.

  19. congrats my British friends

  20. Hello, I wanted to suggest that you spell out the words or phrases that are being analyzed, since those of us who listen to postcats sometimes do not know that word or phrase, and since we are only listening, we cannot read it. A long time ago (when they were Finn an Cathrine for example,) they spelled them out loud. I look forward to hearing in future editions of News Review. congratulations for the program😊

  21. wonderful

  22. Could you explain what AS IT HAPPEN mean?

  23. May i know why no subtitles, thanks

  24. Why King Charles's not Charles' ?

  25. In Australia they use 'to bolt' in a funny way
    " to do Harold Holt"
