    If we all stopped buying this kind of journalism then they would change the way they do business.

    Yep, but a prurient interest in the lives of even moderately famous people now seems ingrained in our insular culture.

    The hypocritical hand-wringing now by the gutter press will be utterly nauseating.

    I’ve no real idea who she was. I needed to Google her – top link was the assault charge. No mention of that on the top 9 comments here. Thought I’d ask the question about the elephant in the room.

    Oooooh you fibber.

    Fancied a quick troll and went for it. Got called out, didn’t like it. Suck it up buttercup.

    As for Caroline Flack – seeming…[Read more]

    That’s not funny. The reference to ‘down the King Power’ means there is a high likelihood this chump lives near me somewhere.

    Still, I saw a loaf of bread in Sainsbury’s earlier that reminded me of this guy, then I looked a bit closer and realised it actually said ‘Thick Cut’.

  • dannyh replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    Why should the EU give us anything other than a hard time?

    On the face of it no reason.

    Sure they want us to prosper as much as possible together but if we try to subvert their system then they will, rightly, tell us to get stuffed.

  • dannyh replied to the topic Boris Johnson! in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    I reckon it really just boils down to Joris wanting to spunk borrowed cash as much as possible to distract from the real structural damage that Brexit will cause.

    Thick as mince Duncan Smith was saying as much the other day.

    New Zealand or Canada, please.

    bridgen

    <Spits on ground>

    Please never ever type that name again where I might read it.

    He is MP for the neighbouring constituency to me. His very being is an affront to decency.

  • I was going to suggest blaming it on your neighbour. Then to emphasise your displeasure either bum his lawn or hammer frozen sausages into his dog.

    (Harks back to a classic thread from last year).

  • dannyh replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 5 days ago

    Cummings has made an interesting comment about the cabinet being worse than a kids cartoon! Would be nice if they grew a backbone and scuppered Johnson.

    His angle will be that they don’t just do what he says. Could well be another round of ‘sack the ones that still ask awkward questions’.

    Not necessarily a good thing.

    @Kelvin

    Sorry, I should have been clearer.

    What I was saying was:

    Why should they help us to subvert their own rules for our own individual gain?

  • dannyh replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 5 days ago

    Or – unless you give us access like we had before all the banks will run away to the EU

    Yep, which is basically a tacit admission that the alternatives are now really BRINO or economic disaster.

    And why SHOULD they help us?

  • dannyh replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 6 days ago

    Barnier:

    We will keep control of these tools and we will retain a free hand to take our decisions.

    But…but…but, aren’t ‘we’ meant to be the ones taking back control?

  • dannyh replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 6 days ago

    Always best to be the power behind the throne rather than sitting in the hot seat.

    Cummings is dangerous. Anyone who is given to quoting Nietzsche to the exclusion of other thinkers needs watching. The scoundrel’s philosopher of choice when it comes to pushing general nastiness.

  • dannyh replied to the topic New Labour leader/ direction in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    I guess just by asking them lots and lots of questions as to why they feel/think that way and then calmly and patiently give your reasons and evidence to the contrary.

    Easier said than done obviously.

    Given the type of person we are talking about I reckon you would get called patronising or elitist at best and chinned at worst.

    They don’t…[Read more]

  • dannyh replied to the topic New Labour leader/ direction in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    Then going and calling them idiots and morons is hardly the way to start to convince them any different is it?

    What is, then?

    FWIW I reckon this is the second most unanswered question on any politics thread on here after ‘so what do you see as the benefits of Brexit?’

    How do you soft-soap exposing stupidity and petty nastiness?

  • dannyh replied to the topic New Labour leader/ direction in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    They should!
    Then get in power and f*** them, that’s what the Tories are doing/did/about to do

    Yep, the bigger the lie and all that.

    The major worry for me is that when the Tories do fuck them over (which they will), will they realise their error or switch support to someone even more nasty and overtly fascist?

  • dannyh replied to the topic New Labour leader/ direction in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    By appeasing the pie and chips racists? No thanks.

    @dazh

    I would love to gloat (I did actually have a mini-gloat on another thread), but I won’t because I know how disillusioned you probably feel right now.

    You have come to realise what I already suspected then knew. The ‘just about managing’ in your average small to medium town are not d…[Read more]

    Decided to bin off any riding as it would be just hellish.

    The annoying thing is I normally ride on a Saturday morning (bright blue sky and sun), but the wife’s weekend shift came up as yesterday so I ended up doing all the kids activities.

    Bollocks.

  • dannyh replied to the topic Storm Ciara in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    The Mrs is working today when it is lovely and sunny, so no riding for me (running around after the kids).

    If I want to get any riding in this weekend it will have to be tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes.

  • dannyh replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    The Channel Islands aren’t part of the UK tho.

    Yes. But personally I thought my ‘St Helier’ pun deserved better.
