  1. Hope it is the death knell of the gravy train for the overpaid band of mediocre presenters and so called stars they shell out millions on.
  2. So now we can't buy a bag of midget gems because the pc brigade have struck again. Where the hell are we going with the English language? Left to their own devices the do gooders will destroy life as we have known it for years and most definitely the way we are allowed to speak. Enough is enough.
  3. The amount of money that has been pumped into water aid should have made Africa one big lake by now if it had not been diverted by corrupt governments. A stop needs to be put on the drains this country is pouring money down.
  4. Another case of figures being manipulated to give the desired answer.
  5. Pity a lot of politicians don't leave the room not to return, we all might feel much better.
  6. He might not be brilliant but he is a hell of a lot better than the lunatic who preceded him
  7. See some low life has defaced a memorial to Captain Tom by painting IRA on it. High time these idiots were taught a sharp lesson in respect, if that means being taken up a dark alley to explain it to them so be it. There will no doubt be objectors to this treatment but it is because of their softly softly approach that these scumbags get no more than a slap on the wrist for their crimes to society.
  8. See people are complaining about Tesco and Sainsburys opening on Boxing day. If nobody wanted to go shopping on Boxing day there would be no need or reason for them to be open . Don't criticise the beast when you are the ones feeding it.
  9. Question is "who was guilty of emptying the bottle"?.
  10. Some feet are not fit to be put on public display. Never seen the attraction of baseball caps no matter which way round they are. We always used to refer to them as brain restrictors when I was a kid.
  11. Political correctness gone berserk. What the purists conveniently forget is that a lot of these expressions were never intended to be derogatory in the first place. It is simply their twisted mentality that finds offence. Given a chance they will destroy the English language and we will simply grunt at each other.
  12. Was beginning to think the same BK
  13. A friend of mine gave her neighbour a bottle of rose scented body wash for his birthday. I suggested that when it was her birthday he returned the compliment and give her a bottle of Old Spice
  14. I drove along Hyson Green the morning after a riot, talk about a war zone.
  15. Nobody is going to persuade the general public of the merits of an argument by disrupting life. These protesters have no respect for the needs of people going to work or even emergency vehicles. They have also shown they have no respect for the courts by ignoring the injunctions taken out against them so that makes them lawbreakers. Fair enough , if that is the way they want to play give them the treatment they deserve and quickly. As RR says, it is time to crack a few skulls. The idiot who climbed on the train roof to protest soon got his come uppance from other passengers and if the police d
  16. She has done exceptionally well and irrespective of her background should be looked on as a British success. We have painfully few successes in tennis and now we have a bright new talent all people can do is pull her apart. Talk about build people up just for the pleasure of pulling them down again.
  17. Once did a contract job at Pork Farms and have never touched anything they make since. Some of the things I saw would have put most people off for life.
  18. A curse in life generally Jill. Too many people let them dominate their lives, if they ring or make whatever stupid noise they have been set to they must be answered immediatley. Fine if you are not at the front of the queue but if you are ignore it until you are served. Comments from behind can be offensive but accurate.
  19. Good job you didn't have to ring back, she would have been better before you got through.
  20. The older cars also lent themselves to the addition of extra dials. I had a Hillman Hunter and fitted oil pressure gauge, ammeter and volt meter. Along with stick on heated window panel, fog lamps and driving lamps there was an array of dials and switches. Modern cars do not offer the areas around the dash to fot such items.
  21. Effective though. The hardest part was to get them stuck on with no ripples and not damaging the foil elements.
  22. Can be applied to any situation.
  23. Thanks CF, was beginning to think I was the only one thinking this way.
  24. Seeing the activities on the news it just proves that certain members of thhe public are their own worst enemies. In the current situation they are also everybodies elses worst enemy. Covid is not going to go away so we are going to have to modify how we live to cope with it. The sooner people get this into their heads the easier it will be for all of us.
