Not too sure if Mr Cable is using irony to highlight the lack of direction in the UK political arena or he actually believes it's his destiny ?
Never mind ,I am sure Ms Abbott will give him a lesson in simple mathematics if he asks nicely . rolleyes.gif


Leave Ms Abbott alone you racist.

She is the "Icon of the year"

What's happening on the 11th ? Are we all having a party ? Will there be fireworks , jelly and icecream ? Can I come ? What constitutes a "deluxe" bunker ? Fitted carpets ? Running water ? Velux window ?

Meanwhile the busker has auditioned for the X factor .

Personally, I find people holding loud phone conversations far more irritating than buskers.


Speaking from my de luxe nuclear bunker in New Zealand I wish the people of Newbury and Great Britian all the best. 11th September will take on a new meaning soon....💀

Just back from a months R&R in south of France and guess what? Farmers blockades on local mway in protest at predation by Wolves on sheep flocks! French government has issued a licence to cull 40 of them for this year. And, not far away a bear was responsible for stampeding 200 sheep of a cliff edge last week. That and having vultures in the sky overhead and sangliers rooting in the garden at night it's been quite exciting!


Nature. Gotta love it. We don't need Wolves. Chavs with Staffies are more "UK"....

Now forgive me for being a snob but I buy free range chicken. The idea of buying a chicken reared in substandard battery farms before being dipped in Chlorine is hardly appealing. It may end up in some dodgy kebab or other fast food restaurant but I wont be eating any of that *****. I think the yanks will find that the Britsh people in general won't touch it with a bargepole.

Arguably, the real blame lies with the similarly overpaid and demonstrably incompetent BBC executives who agreed to pay these sums. There is a very simple answer to people who demand money by threatening to go; just let them.


Indeed. You cannot actually blame Evans and Linekar. If the eejits at the BBC pay these oiks this sort of money whilst Fiona Bruce gets a measily 200k in comparison then they need replacing. And thats based on talent. No more. No less. Bruce. Multi program multi faceted presenter.. Linekar. Football, Twitter, Underpants and Crisps.... rolleyes.gif

I have just noted that my original rant has fallen foul of the censor . Now I am sure there are certain words not used in polite society or on on this forum, but a four letter word for the habitat of the anti christ is hardly warrants removal especial when used as an interjection of disbelief rather than a crude expletive.........or does it ?

From now on I shall use the euphemism Hades house .... rolleyes.gif


Shocking discrimination. How will Devil worshippers feel? I may lodge a complaint.

Nothing like as dangerous as people.


Correct. Though I'd still rather take on 1 guy than a pack of dogs. But then I have a phobia having been attacked before by an Alsatian Cross breed off the leash. I admit I cross the road if I see a staffy off the lead approaching.

Then again some dogs are lovely. Bit like people really. Some wrong uns... Especially if brought up in the wrong environment.

Speaking as one who quite likes the idea of an attractive young lady prancing around between planets on a Saturday evening ,this is surely the way forward. Maybe we will soon have a Prime minister of the female gender or at least a train driver. I was under the impression that the Dr is A sexual, ( don't recollect a mention of breeding on Gallifrey ?) and therefore should have been re-incarnated as an eight legged blob, the sort found on Zog.


You'll be suggesting that women can drive cars soon. Tsk!!!

Why is Dr Who a woman?

This is a disgrace. The BBC have really messed this up. It should have been a trans gender or ethnic minority. A white woman? Disgusting and not the way forward.

Admirable sentiments but now outdated. Like other past siboleths such as an Englishmans word is his bond and his home is his castle. As we've seen, all to often the perpetrators of vile rhetoric are too keen to turn it into physical reality. Freedom of speech was never really much of a reality anyway, so it's no big deal if managed properly.


Like China and Russia "manage" freedom of speech???😂

No, simply the people doing this are without hope and without anything else. In similar circumstances, what would you do? Scum Tories? Frankly, scum LibDems and worse scum New Labour who claim to be representatives of the less privileged but have failed miserably.

Be about as reasonable as Soithern Train drivers. More money than a pilot sir? No thank you. My union says no. 🐑

For that you need an ip address which is only available from web host if a NPO is obtained from the courts. At least that's my understanding, but as most social media companies are based stateside they can fall back on their good old first amendment.


Exactly. We could get all China mind and shut it all down. Then people would have something to moan about. 😮

I wholly agree with the sentiments, so this isn't a defence, more an attempt at understanding why. Like it or not, modern politics are divisive and is based on raw capitalisim, or unconstrained market forces. That says trust no one but yourself, because no one else will, not even the Government. So then, if you are at the bottom of the heap, you have nothing to lose and your resort is violence, real or virtual. You aren't going to believe that any politician is driven by anything other than self interest.


So... Ok for the left to troll. Not ok for the right to troll. Cos you agree with the left. Scum Tories. Eh?

No civil person could condone a lot of what Mr Benyon has reported. That said, there are many who find the promotion of the Tory party with placards very bit obscene as the words used to deface them. If I were a Tory I wouldn't advertise the fact. It is akin to telling the underprivileged to go far themselves.


Guess we ought to switch the Internet off.

Perhaps a rather more robust approach to this type of thing would be in order. The IT providers have no prescriptive right to refuse traces etc. so that offenders could be caught and dealt with.


I dont want my tax being spent on peoples feelings. Thanks. And I guarantee you any such activity would result in prosecutions of innocent people who don't agree with the politically correct view that all amd sundry are supposed to follow, like 🐑. Poor old Diane Abbott for example. People were nasty to her on twitter. Lock em all up. Where?

Don't use social media. Or be a bit more hard nosed. If you open a twitter account and start espousing what people should think you will always be the subject of abhorrent and sometimes racist abuse by a tiny but significant percentage of social media users that are trolls or unhinged or far left or far right etc...

Not nice but part of modern life. Deal with it. Or close your account and release press statements via another forum. Or just get another job!!!

Indeed. one of the reasons I wouldn't want to be employed by you anyway! You have at least confirmed that the biggest concern I had about Brexit, one that nearly stopped me voting to leave. That is, I was concerned that the UK didn't appear to have the management capability to go it alone. You have at least confirmed that; so perhaps the present political re-think is no bad thing.


Goodbye. Shut the door on the way out. You can't even perform trolling very well. Poor excuse for a human being.

Does this fit with the comment you made about you not wanting to employ me without you knowing anything at all about my skills or fitness for the job? Frankly, I'm not surprised you are often 'leaned on' by your HR department!


Not at all. By commenting on this forum for years that gives me a much better insight into your character than a 1 to 2 hour interview. I think you would cause trouble in my department. I expect you have been a thorn in the side of a lot of people in the past. And you'll be proud of it.
