  1. Bl**dy politicians

    Chatter
    So, the "coalition" (read, Tories with the Liberal Democrats making up the numbers) are taking a pasting in the local council elections - pretty bleedin' obvious really - and "Labour" coming out the "winners". The thing is that in Wales it is the "Welsh Labour Party" that is doing the winning...
  2. Stupidity at its worst

    Chatter
    Stupidity at its worst. Our (Overpaid and brainless) politicians here in Sweden have decided that in the name of equality between the sexes, the words he (han) and she (hon) shall be substituded with the neutral word "Hen". I know I'm getting old, and my ideas are not proactive enough but I...

    Insurance
    2 years ago I was paying £340 fully comp for my pick up insurance, the renewal came through at £716.... needless to say I told them to poke it and managed to get a quote for £380 from Adrian Flux (bikesure) which I took... .....roll foward a year and another years no claims and my renewal is...

  5. Inside job - the movie.

    Chatter
    pretty much confirms what everybody already knows about the banksters but lays it all out in front of you and holy crap! These a**holes are just as bad if not worse than the rioters, supported and protected by their millionare co-conspirators (politicians). We truly are in deep poop as long as...
  6. If Cameron goes

    Chatter
    would that mean wallpaper-heir Osborne would be in charge of the Tory party? would that mean that Cleggy would be Prime Minister? would that mean that Ed Miliband would become far more important than he deserves? God knows, I never thought I would want Cameron to remain in his position...
  7. Sharon Shoesmith

    Chatter
    Having read the thresd about my local burglar, thought i'd ask the question about Miss Shoesmith. A child dies, nastiliy, her department has a responsibility for the childs welfare, it is failing and poorly managed. A pretty Daming report from Ofsted states this. The Sec State removes her from...
  8. Postcode lottery

    Chatter
    Is it just me who finds the term 'postcode lottery' almost completely pointless?! Journos and politicians use the phrase and treat it as if they've said something. Have they Hell! A postcode lottery means that Raymo has easy access to moors, Ian Porter can get to the Peaks in no time, BobA...

    Chatter
    i was listening to a local radio station today and there was an ex-serviceman who had served in the gulf during the first conflict in the 90's and was injured which resulted in him suffering lung damage. you could actually hear him struggling for breath as he was talking. for his troubles he was...
  10. E-Mail chain

    Charity Events
    Normally email chain letters get binned before I read them but this one is closer to my heart Thanks for reading The average British soldier is 19 years old…..he is a short haired, well built lad who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry...
  11. New National Speed Limits coming

    Chatter
    50 MPH speed limits... Nanny government looks as if it is having another go at the Motorist, typical sneaky little announcements on a Sunday... How long before the first Petition, though I can see many politicians of NuLab loving the idea of yet more control freakery. There are also some...
  12. Whatever next????????

    Chatter
    God preserve us from politicians... The world-famous Red Arrows have been banned from appearing at the 2012 London Olympics because they are deemed 'too British'. Organisers of the event say that the Arrows military background might be 'offensive' to other countries taking part in the Games...
  13. Fascinating, Scary, but also hillarous.

    Chatter
    I got emailed a link to this earlier: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/20278737/jesus_made_me_puke/1 It's a bit of a long read, but I found it really well written and alternately frightening, fascinating, and hillarious in places (worth sticking with until page 4 when the clown story...
  14. Olympics

    Chatter
    I have just watched Tessa Jowell on London TV talking about the Olympics and its already massive budget Overun. It was originally budgeted to cost £2.3 Billion Pounds. It is now up to £9.6 Billion pounds. They are coming out with figures like this 5 years before the event. So i will take a bet...
  15. Can you say what you like about ''Bikers''?

    Chatter
    This question is prompted by an article by Jeremy Clarkson in The Times today. He is reflecting on a south african experience he had last week, the upshot of which he says bikers get what they deserve when they are killed. Bikers perform a valuable public service in that when they kill...
