    I was 50 this year and have never voted conservative, and hope to christ I never have to. But, and it’s a big but, suppose one day something worse comes along and looks like it might take your seat?

    If you’re juggling with the morality of 130,000 dead benefits claimants and the shitshow that is Breixt, may I suggest that we’ve hit rock b…[Read more]

    45 years old here and absolutely no chance of voting Conservative. If anything, I’m more vehemently anti-Tory than ever. I’m also happy to pay more tax for better services too.

  • If the offer and formal contract state £22k, does it then say “Pro-Rata”? Could it be a mix up over working hours?

    If they cannot produce a contract to show that your partner signed up on the lower wage, then I cannot see how she can possibly be expected to pay it back. Although she’s been there four months, it still stinks. I’d put in a call…[Read more]

  • PJM1974 replied to the topic Cat deterrence 🐈 in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    Difficult one, our two cats are pretty confident being units of around 7kg each, but a younger female cat of considerable size has started prowling round the garden. Both of our cats will fight and chase her off, but she still keeps coming round. I suspect that a truce will break out when the weather gets warmer and they’re least inclined to…[Read more]

  • Inner tubes at the road side in france.

    Trufax – I’ve never once met a French person that I didn’t like.

    You can achieve a similar effect with a half inflated balloon and some hand cream. Single use, too!

    Pretty much described pulling in a nightclub in semi rural north Essex, during the early 1990s there.

    Why does anyone suddenly need a…

  • Firstly, I am delighted at the humanity in the responses and the personal accounts of people who’ve split with partners and who’ve gone on to have excellent relationships with their kids and even the ex-partners themselves.

    It helped me to understand that I was not the problem and how to manage their behaviour

    Narcissists have a way of making…[Read more]

  • Worst? A hidden tree stump in long grass that I hit at walking pace. I burst all of the ligaments in my right shoulder.

    Most controversial? Probably riding back with my brother to his home in The Hague after a night out on an Apollo something. I came within centimetres of putting us both in a canal.

    The “Accidental Dirty Sanchez Award”? On…[Read more]

    McLaren won’t win for a little while yet, next year they’ll be seeing out their relationship with Renault that may go sour if McLaren beat the factory team to fourth again. I wouldn’t be surprised to see podiums at places like Hungary or even Azerbaijan.

    McLaren really managed to get on top of their car in 2019, they were Q3 more often than…[Read more]

    So…Predictions for next year:

    * Hamilton to win a record equaling seventh title, before jumping ship for 2021, billed as the biggest challenge of his career? Will it be Ferrari or…could it be where it all began?

    * Vettel to throw a spanner in the works of an early Leclerc title bid?

    * Verstappen and Red Bull Honda to produce THE complete…[Read more]

    This should be a 2020 thread now.

    The season’s over, so I’m calling this one in!

  • Portia Mayhew (name changed to protect the innocent) went out with me AND my mate Gary, at the same time when we were at secondary school. I found out because Gary and I sat next to one another in Maths.

    I can’t speak for her intellectual development since then, but we’ve just had an exchange on social media about last week’s attack at London…[Read more]

  • Also, I think I just need to have ZERO expectation of her.

    Yep. Anything she does that’s positive is a bonus. It’s really bloody difficult but just ignore the rest. She may get worse, she may not. If she does, then she’ll have made further justification for your reasons for ending the relationship. She may also be very worried that your new…[Read more]

  • I really do feel for the OP, especially when this shit happens at this time of year.

    All that you can really do is to not play and not get drawn into battles on social media, the key point here is control – she desires control over you and is willing to use your kids and social media to do this. Not everyone is dumb, they’ll see what’s happening…[Read more]

  • PJM1974 replied to the topic F1 2019 (spoilers obviously) in the forum Chat Forum 4 days ago

    Re Formula E – the cars seem to have more power than grip, the pace of development seems to be quite rapid. I don’t believe that it’ll be a niche formulae for very long, it may even prove to be more relevant for motor manufacturers than F1 when you consider that within twenty years, new cars won’t be powered by internal combustion.

    Anyway,…[Read more]

    Hmmm…

    1) Vettel is 32. He’s shown that given competition the hunger is there to chase for wins. The difficulty will be balancing Vettel with his team mate, who most certainly isn’t doing the loyal junior team mate thing. As hols2 says, Ferrari will want a return on their premium, I don’t see them tolerating Vettel trailing his team mate in…[Read more]

    Bloke on twitter from Chingford this morning with pictures of Iain Duncan Smith at his door. Apparently if Labour win then “they will take your house away”.

    IDS has to lose his seat for his constant, incessant lying and his ghoulish tendencies towards making poor people even poorer.

    Haven’t seen it but I do have 3 questions please:

    1. Did they kick the trend and forego the predictable ‘intensely-drab’ turquoise and brown video filter that seems to have been en vogue for over a decade now ?

    If you like all of the interior and a lot of exterior shots artificially darkened to the point that you can’t see what’s going on then…[Read more]

    Episode Two was far, far better than the first but it all came crashing down in episode three.

    The story was all over the place, very hard for a narrative to come out of it. The flash-forward scenes were largely a colossal waste of time, TBH I am all for storyline over CGI finesse but there were only so many lingering shots of someone’s cellar…[Read more]

    She’s lauded by the same people who accuse Dianne Abbot of being thick.

    I know who Id rather have in charge of a govt dept and it ain’t Truss.

    I say again, shit floats right now. The very worst politicians seem to attract funding and media attention.
