More evidence: looking at my 2017 EOY lists for Jazz and Non-Jazz, the A-list split between Jazz/Non-Jazz is 81/56.
In most years the Jazz/Non-Jazz split is relatively even (e.g., 81/83 in 2015, although they diverged a bit more in 2016: 75/67).
The dog left locked inside has since been rescued by the RSPCA and Mr Girtchen said he was in a state of shock at the state his house was left.'The front window has been smashed, and the house is just full of dog c**p.'There is a laminate flooring downstairs which I think will need replacing due to the staining from the mess the dog has left.'The garage roof has holes in it, and there is just stuff piled up everywhere - they have left me with an awful lot of cleaning up to do.'The landlord, who lived in the house for 20 years before renting it out, said county court proceedings had been listed for December against the pair, who cannot currently be named for legal reasons.
