1. Post shit like that Britain First stuff? Get deleted.
2. Post those stupid spammy statuses? Get deleted.
3. Start taking selfies with a stick and posting them? Get deleted.

The thing is about that number is as I mentioned in my first post, it's boosted by sad American twats who are desperate to be Irish for some (unknown to me) reason. Their great great great grandfather might have been Irish and married a German, and subsequent great great grandfather, great grandfather, grandfather and father married any nationality you can think of (bar Irish) and they would still consider themselves Irish over anything else.

It's truly amazing, especially considering the 'special relationship' and the 'hands across the ocean' between the US & UK.

You'd think that 2 million New Yorkers would line the streets for an annual St Georges Day parade rather than pretend to have Irish descent.

It's really staggering that St Patrick's Day is celebrated in every country on earth yet St Georges Day is, on the whole, only celebrated by neo nazis.

As you've mentioned yourself, England barely celebrates St. George's Day, so it's no wonder no one in America does.

Even so, people of Irish descent in the US far outnumber English/UK, with I think Germans top.

I agree - but with that shop you get what you (don't) pay for.

It's cheap as chips because it is run on a shoestring with too few poorly paid staff that are worked like dogs and who live in fear of not getting any hours next week.

If you want exemplary service pay the premium and go to one of the more highly staffed more expensive shops.

And if he really ate all of it and ate it too quickly, he might well have it again. Though it might lack a certain something presentationally

And if he were one of those unpleasant creatures that regurgitate and re-eat food (I understand these are known as dogs), he could have it, eat it, have it, eat it, have it, eat it and have it again.

My son's teacher wrote a really snide note in one of his books a couple of years ago telling us that we needed to make him practice his handwriting at home every evening (he was 6 at the time). The note was so full of basic grammatical errors that I felt duty bound to correct it in red ink, like she would do to his work. A couple of days later when dropping him off in the morning, I was called into the headmaster's office and accused of bullying the teacher and undermining her work - by correcting the message she'd written in his book. The headmaster felt this was a more serious issue than the fact that they had a teacher who clearly couldn't write English correctly teaching year 1 pupils. He also tried to make out that it was racist to say this as she was Asian, although as I pointed out to him born and bred in the UK and having been through the UK university system and therefore presumably spoke English as a first language.

The note was so full of basic grammatical errors that I felt duty bound to correct it in red ink, like she would do to his work. A couple of days later when dropping him off in the morning, I was called into the headmaster's office and accused of bullying the teacher and undermining her work - by correcting the message she'd written in his book. The headmaster felt this was a more serious issue than the fact that they had a teacher who clearly couldn't write English correctly teaching year 1 pupils. He also tried to make out that it was racist to say this as she was Asian, although as I pointed out to him born and bred in the UK and having been through the UK university system and therefore presumably spoke English as a first language.

When Amy was in year 4 she brought some spellings home to learn & I was surprised to see one was spelt wrong. I pointed it out to Amy & she refused to believe me - she just couldn't get her head round the fact that a teacher could be wrong, even when I showed her in the dictionary. It was only when a team of teachers came 6th at a quiz night that she realised they weren't infallible!

1989 is a great album without a doubt one of my favourite recent albums

Ticket from Matalan

Young children ( 5 or 6 years old ish ) being interviewed on the radio about something or other and giving stupid one word answers . It always ends up with the presenter loading the questions :

Presenter : "Hello (insert child's name). Now, I've heard a little story about you being really brave and picking up the phone all by yourself and dialling 999 on your mummy's mobile and telling the nice man at the end of the phone that there's a cow on the loose in the high street, and you had to call them because your mummy got knocked over by the cow, didn't she? And you called the police to report this and they then got the fire brigade out to help catch the cow, didn't they, and got it put back safely into the farmer's field, didn't they ? "

Child : " Yeah".

Sounds like a Tony Pulis interview!

I know, before you say it.
I'm getting old.
But, in what world is it acceptable to have a bloke in tight shorts and high heels dancing in an advert.
It doesn't have anything to do with what is being advertised, that I can see.
I think it says a lot when a company thinks this is an acceptable advert for their product, and the general public just accept it.
A sign of the times (sigh)
Not a better world
:(:(

Please tell me this is some kind of sick, tasteless joke.

That really doesn't worry me. I get more pissed off by the loan sharks who make borrowing money seem easy, painless and a solution for people in financial need. Nice, jokey ads that sanitise the small print that they'll be charged over 1000% APR.

These feckers deserve to endure a slow and painful end, commensurate with the misery and hardship they spread around to needy and gullible people.
