Fantastic result , kept switching off the radio as all the wickets seemed to be falling when I wasn't listening, the first one I caught live was Siddle, the 8th wicket to fall.
Twitter seems to be in meltdown, favourite one so far:
@dotterel: Rolf Harris, Edna Everidge, Barry Humphries, Clive James. Are you listening Germaine Greer? Your boys took a hell of a beating.
The stats themselves seem to show that Australia were the better team - 8 centuries to Englands 2, the 3 top wicket-takers in the series, better averages all round. But England seem to have managed to rise to it when it mattered - the 10th wicket stand at Cardiff, and a couple of game-changing bowling spells which Australia weren't able to replicate.
The only shame is that we couldn't follow it live on telly. Are you listening Gordon Brown? Can the next Ashes be one of the 'crown jewels' events which are protected as free on mainstream channels, rather than stuff we have to pay for.
Strauss man of the series, Broad man of the match, Michael Clarke the Aussie man of the series, no surprises.
Splendid. Beer time.
