These generic 20 something female "singers" that talk/sing with a deliberately cracked voice. Often covering old songs trying to sound new and edgy.

Utter shit television. Proper lowest common denominator stuff. It's the sort of thing that they would do as a filler segment on TFI Friday or something like that yet they have managed to stretch it into a 30 minute programme, in a full series, for several series, in several countries.

It's not even as if the concept of minor celebrities miming to pop songs as the basis of a tv show is the worst thing, it's the self congratulatory 'look at us and how wacky we are, I'm a celeb but I bet you never thought I was THIS crazy' smugness of the whole thing.

Come back 'stars in their eyes' all is forgiven.

In the town I live, they are closing lots of bank branches, so those that are left are packed, especially on a Saturday.

Also a few of the supermarkets are now closed down leaving the ones left packed.

I guess it's the airline philosophy... less flights, full planes, less expenditure, bigger profit margin.

Luckily I rarely go into a bank but had to yesterday to open a new account.

ChiswickEagle 10-01-2016 11:41 PM

Bank branches are a bit like tube ticket offices. Largely redundant if you can alter habits and get people to move on-line. Banks will move to central hubs.

I had to visit two different banks just after the New Year and both of them were heaving.

I have no idea why so many people needed to visit the branches, (maybe doing what I had to do, which was opening and closing accounts) but I guess like cheques, there is a need for old-school stuff.

As I said in my post above, I too was opening a new account, and that is what a lot of people were in there for. The actual teller windows were doing very little trade, most people wanted a consultation.

We had an appointment, and actually still has to wait 20+ minutes for our person to be freed up. Most people seemed to be in there with issues rather than old fashioned banking.

Carling and Fosters are no more than water that someone has pissed in, Carlsberg slightly better, the premium brands of lager certainly are drinkable though, Stella, Kroney, my fave ATM is San Miguel draft.

Very true. In fact, all the recent comments deriding Carlsberg/Carling/Fosters etc. And dont even get me started on Coors Light - that seriously is just cold water with a drip of Soda Stream in it.

Totally. Bowie died, sad, but he had an amazing life, admittedly I'm not a fan, but there are literally millions of far sadder totally tragic stories coming to an end right now but because they're not famous we couldn't care less.

I sort of get where you're coming from. I don't a) do outpourings of grief for celebrities and d) am not a fan.

But....

Bowie was such an icon for British music for near on 6 decades. People are mourning the death of that I think as much as the sad passing itself. Like you say there are thousands of lives ending today in similar ways. It's just that the vast majority of those lives have been lived in private.

Yeah I get that too and although I'm no fan I totally get that he was very talented and unique and will be missed by millions.

But this is not the place for agreement. This thread is about irrational dislikes :p

Really? It was a 120 mile piece of totally empty road. We stopped a couple of times so the dogs could have a piss and look at the mountains (us, not the dogs). How could we be sure who was driving at any particular time. Theres fookin millions of cameras on that road.

Hardly a stunt mate. We were taking turns driving and although i definitely drive faster than her, couldn't be sure at which point along the massive stretch of road the average speed camera had zapped us.

Reading that article it seems the politician was facing a driving ban, as opposed to having a clean licence. Hardly grounds for prison, even in this police state.

It's everywhere in Milan. You can get a pint of Super from the burger vans outside the San Siro. I don't think it's 9% though, didn't get to check the sign but I'd guess it was around the Stella ballpark.

I once had a pint of Special Brew on draft in a pub in Deptford. I was close to hammered after one pint.

You know me too well :)

Here's a conundrum for you:

Someone on gumtree is giving away 8-10 tonnes of red stones for free. The catch is they are 50 miles away and you have to handball as much as you want onto and off the vehicle you use to get them.

Alternatively, someone else in your town is selling pea gravel for 25 pound a tonne delivered to your drive.

Do you a) only see the word 'free' and break your back going to get them and spend more on the van and diesel, or b) sit in the house and pick up the phone.

Thanks for confirming that for me. I was absolutely gobsmacked, especially since I rocked up in the place on its opening night by accident (I was waiting to board a ferry to Croatia) and was the only Brit in the place.

Here's a conundrum for you:

Someone on gumtree is giving away 8-10 tonnes of red stones for free. The catch is they are 50 miles away and you have to handball as much as you want onto and off the vehicle you use to get them.

Alternatively, someone else in your town is selling pea gravel for 25 pound a tonne delivered to your drive.

Do you a) only see the word 'free' and break your back going to get them and spend more on the van and diesel, or b) sit in the house and pick up the phone.

I'm assuming that you really need said stones/gravel ?

I know what I'd do but then I'm a lazy bastard. :)

People calling the British police 'feds'.

Boys in blue? Camera Unit? Stealth tax division? Ceunts?

People who defend average speed cameras.

That's odd works on my quote but not on your original. Still annoys me when it happens ;)

That clip was me trying to get into a pack of wraps, a shrink wrap CD and USB charge dock in packaging remarkably similar to his.

Well, 'police' works pretty well. But if you want a slang term, there are plenty of British ones (cops, filth, pigs etc) without resorting to Americanisms which have no relevance here.

Ok thanks.

We called them feds in the raf. Guess it stuck. However since i suspect no serving police officer has handled this case from 'flash' to fine, 'police' isn't very accurate either.

Bloody dangerous stuff, that packaging.

Why is it so hard to change a headlight bulb in a car? No room to get to the damn thing at all, I will have to get my tiny handed daughter to do it!!

Babylon.

Selhurst Celtic 13-01-2016 02:54 PM

Or Peelers.

There's loads when I think about it. Babylon is one that winds them up according to my impeccable source.

Dibble in Manchester.
Bizzies in Liverpool - who call the Fire Brigade 'Fire Bizzies.'
