  1. Had similar RR but the new one is "why are you painting it that colour?". Answer is because I want to, twat.
  2. Goes for me as well Jonab
  3. Yes, one of them did appear to be female. In the current trend of equality both would be punished identically in my book. In fact they can count themselves lucky they are not related to me as what the authorities might do to them would be nothing to what I would do.
  4. Saw on the news today a cctv footage of two idiots smashing a defibrilator at a football club. The image seemed clear enough for the authorities to be able to identify them so when they are picked up make an example of them. Before actual punishment they should be made to pay personally for twenty defibrilators as a by the way to redirect their tendancies. It is an absolute disgrace for this to happen and is totally unacceptable behaviour that should not be tolerated. I am not interested in any excuses for their action,they are not fit to be allowed to walk free.
  5. High time it was drilled into these students that history cannot be rewritten, what happened was in the past and cannot be changed. They are at university to be educated not cause disruption and annoy people. Any of them who cause damage to property should be thrown out on their ear. No argument is going to be sold to the masses by the actions of a bunch of louts. To want to remove the Queens portrait is an absolute disgrace and they should be given a very clear message of who is in charge and it is not them. If they don't like it well hard luck. They are little more than children and are sup
  6. My sentiments exactly Phil. The only problem is that the general public are very short sighted and will all rush out like greyhounds out of the trap. It is through mass grouping that we got in the mess we did. Yes, it might be a bit tough not being able to do what you want but not as tough as what has happened to over 120,000 people who are not here to do what they liked doing. We owe it to them to act responsibly and not take any chances.
  7. Look at it this way BK, if some of those who think they are so clever had to do things that you have done in life would they still think they were clever. I have known people who were fine in their theoretical knowledge but were useless when it came to being practical. Someone once tried a bit of oneupmanship with a friend of mine by sneering he went to university. Without batting an eyelid my friend responded "so did Burgess and Mclean but look how much use they were". Total silence followed. My grandfather was a down to earth type and one of his expressions was " if you are content you are t
  8. Wait until Gedling have dumped a load more on the doorstep and it will be even worse. Facilities will soon be overwhelmed as all that are built are houses, not infrastructure.
  9. A fine innings Sir. Never afraid to speak his mind but always did a fine supporting job, a dedicated man.
  10. Enjoyed the documentary on Monday about the last flight of the last remaining Vulcan bomber. Although it was designed as a killing machine it was a magnificent sight and much loved by those who had worked with it. I remember it when it was at Rolls Royce at Hucknall and used to come over our house. It was pure white in those days but still an awesome sight.
  11. Can you trust any politician? They all seem very good at promising the earth as they seek election and then making excuses for not living up to their promises once elected.
  12. All smacks of the American love of hype and publicity. Given their track record on racism they would be better thinking before casting aspersions on others. To quote a post on another thread " a closed mouth gathers no foot". I have no issues with the colour of a persons skin or where they come from but can't help thinking along the lines of chips on shoulders.
  13. Today is the day you worried about yesterday
  14. I remember Archie Stinchcombe at MercurySports. I went there for my first cricket bat after I left school, not expecting the grilling that I got. He stood back from me and eyed me up then announced that he knew just the bat for me. Taking it as a sales pitch I said I wanted to look at several but guess what....... I ended up buying the one he had first presented me with and never regretted it. I can still hear his words of advice as I paid for it, " look after it, don't lend it to any bugger and it will serve you well". It did and so did all the other kit I bought from him.
  15. It's about time the normal ones amongst us told these so called politically correct wannabes where to get off once and for all and revert to the proper English language that we were educated with. The do gooders of this world can't see the damage they have done to society with their screwed up ideas.
  16. I object to being greeted by " can I help you babe?". To start with I am old enough to be the spotty individual's grandad and secondly, if my memory serves me correctly, Babe was a pig. Even if you ignore the greeting and ask a question invariably they have not got a clue about what is being sold.
  17. See the students have been at it again with their partying. Never mind fining them penalties they will never pay, throw them out of university and give them an insite to what a mess the real world is in. They are supposed to be the future leaders of society. God help them, I am glad my day of reckoning will have come before they get in a position to make a real b....s up of everything. They are nothing more than spoilt little brats who need a good dose of discipline.
  18. Those who let the place deteriorate from what it was should hang their heads in shame and at the same time receive one almighty kick up the backside. If that is the way they think things should be run we are in a downwards spiral.
  19. Another example of the fact they needed us far more than we needed them.
  20. Carry him shoulder high through the streets until they get to Tower Bridge and then throw him over the side. Same with the other lunatic David Icke and his son who is also obnoxious.
  21. So yet again we have a group of protesters on the loose in Nottingham defying all the covid restrictions. It is high time these idiots were dealt with once and for all. They are a threat to the rest of us and themselves. Imagine the uproar if they were refused treatment for any complaint that befell them on the grounds it was self inflicted. They should be rounded up and dragged off to a covid ward and made to look at the unfortunate patients who are fighting for breath and life itself. The rest of us owe it to those who have lost their lives to this horrible illness to stamp the behaviour of
