That the Free Speech has been closed when I have only recently found The Secret Barrister’s blog post which completely demolishes the case of those who sought to defend Tommy Robinson’s actions.

ExiledStirling 31-05-2018 09:20 AM

When having to confirm an action, such as in internet banking, you have to scroll to actually find the confirm button.

Surely not difficult to position the confirm button on a page so that this is unnecessary.

That is really good, and destroys all the propaganda surrounding this. Shame that it was not possible for you to post this on the Free speech thread.

This about sums it all up;

7. So what you’re saying is that Tommy Robinson was given a suspended sentence simply for trying to report on a case? Free speech is truly dead.

No, ye of little brain. He was found to be in contempt of court and given a suspended sentence because his actions put a serious criminal trial in jeopardy. Running around a court building shouting “paedophile” at defendants during a live trial, or live-streaming defendants and members of the public – potentially including jurors – entering and exiting a court building against a tub thumping narration of “Muslim paedophile gangs”, is hardly conducive to ensuring a fair trial. And if there can’t be a fair trial, nobody gets justice. Not the accused, not the complainants, not the public. This is not theoretical – serious criminal trials have nearly collapsed because of the actions of people like Yaxley-Lennon.

I defend him not because of his views but because of the way they are twisted and the abuse that attracts.

Biggins is either very careful in the way he words things, putting to bed any claims of him as a village idiot, or he is the village idiot and just expresses openly on here racist and bigoted views.

You cannot have it both ways, as if the former, it puts to bed the claim and if the latter then he would have received a permanent ban a while ago.

No half term up here. They do get 2 weeks in october though, which is kind of nice as Cyprus is cooling down but the sea is still warm. One of Scotlands better ideas.

Feckwits who chip your windscreen by driving at 60mph on newly gritted roads instead of the recommended 10mph. Even 30mph would be acceptable. Me shouting "slow down you fecking ****" as i walked back to the car with the dogs seemed effective on one, but you cant do that while driving the other way as easily.

It did cross my mind, but I could only see this one, or go use a WC in one of the stalls. I think it must be some new standard height as I've encountered the problem a couple of times recently.

Yoda 02-06-2018 01:37 AM

The assumption that computer systems have made everything better and quicker.

Back in the 80s when I started work in my gap year, I began my job on the Monday and by that Friday the payroll cashier had exactly the right money waiting for me in an envelope, with a payslip.

I’m currently working for a similar size company. Filled in their forms before I started, including bank details.

So far I’ve worked 5 weeks without receiving a penny, but ofcourse plenty of expenditure on my part eg petrol, clothes.

I’ve had to submit a weekly timecard on their computer system, even though I’m just claiming my standard hours each week, so nothing like overtime to claim.

Then this waits for approval on-line by a manager. This is the first time in my working life that a manager has had to confirm I’ve done standard hours...can’t this just be assumed anymore?

And now I’ve been told I ‘might’ be in the payroll that gets paid at the end of June. By which time I’d have worked 9 weeks. But the most I can claim is 6 weeks because the cut off for that pay roll is 3 weeks earlier at the start of June.

So when I started work I was paid within days, but now it takes two months. They did blithely say let us know if this is a problem, but it’s the principle isn’t it.

Progress eh.

As I approach 50 yrs of life, even though we are in a boom period of technological advancement and mankind's endeavours, I am increasingly bemused by the number of ****** idiots around me.
I thought evolution was meant to kill the cretins ?
There are people out there making life easier. Installing pedestrian crossings, traffic lights, places to put your shopping trolley, litter bins and car parking bays.

And there are an increasing number of fckwits around me who leave trolleys in parking bays, can't park a car, pedestrians who walk across a road without looking, and chuck rubbish on the floor.
I'd hope to be in an environment at my age. where there is a certain amount of order and consideration.
Instead, I have to drive to Ruislip (again !) next week , because some dumb fck was unable to give me the correct site address details. No, not 'unable'. They just didn't bother making sure they'd done their job properly.
There's gonna be a bit of a surprise when I issue the invoice, coz being a fckwit doesn't come cheap

Have you tried sleeping in another bed in the house or sofa? this worked for me for a while, I did go to the docs and get sleeping tabs but they make you feel like crap especially the antihistamine ones, and never take calms or there equivalent.

Also, the condition of your room not too hot/cold, dark with no artificial light, no caffeine/nicotine hours before bed etc are just basic things you can do to see what eliminates it.

My problem after my bout of it now though is that I can't sleep in the same bed as my wife :supergrin::supergrin: I know it sounds funny but if we do I start getting the insomnia feeling back again but if I sleep on something else next to her then I can, weird I know.

At some of the more desperately trendy bars in the same area you'll end up paying nearly that much for a single pint! Now I love beers as much as the next man - but shelling out over £20 for 3 pints of keg ale really annoys me, no matter how tasty it might be...

I find Murphys a bit sweet, but I'll drink it if there's no Guinness.

I think the biggest Guinness brewery in the world is actually in Nigeria and that they drink more pints of if it than the Irish. Although there's an ever so slight difference in the population of Ireland v Nigeria.

Speak to your GP about Circadian/Melatonin - it kick starts your melatonin production so is more "sleep suggestive" than sedative, non-addictive and doesn't leave you groggy the next day.

In the US it's available over the counter as a jetlag treatment but it's prescription only here.



Now I just have to work on not waking up at 3am!

I think the biggest Guinness brewery in the world is actually in Nigeria and that they drink more pints of if it than the Irish. Although there's an ever so slight difference in the population of Ireland v Nigeria.

There`s also a brewery in Jamaica. When I was living in Bermuda Guinness in the bottle was about 8% strong. Few of those down Tobacco Bay and a swim. Heaven!

A night on Murhpys in the Sportsbar that was once under the Blue Orchid resulted in a post on the "have you ever sh*t yourself in Public" thread.


Have not touched it since

Richmal Crompton in Bromley is good. The Moon and Stars was my dads favourite pub, been there many times.

The Greyhound in Bromley is also ok but the selection is not as big as the selection in the Moon and Stars.

The young Mineagles thought it was great when they were over there. I shall be frequenting it from August onward for a few weeks when I return to view my overseas estates.

What has that got to do with Wetherspoons pubs?

Unfunny comedians who have an air of deluded arrogance about their art.


Thank you to Phil Jupitus for reminding me that it annoys me.

Doesn't annoy me - I hate the stuff - but I am sure some on here will get agitated... :)

Salad Cream, one of the UK's most traditional condiments may be renamed Sandwich Cream, it has been reported.

Its maker, Heinz, says that only 14% of those who buy the sauce use it on salads, with many more preferring to use it in sandwiches.

A spokesman for Heinz told trade magazine the Grocer that the name no longer "fairly represents the product's ingredients or usage occasions."

It would be the first name change for the product since its launch in 1914.

Players who stick their tongues out when they score, it is an arrogant gesture.

The media love to use this instant as a way to show 'emotion' in a goal, I ******* hate it.

It's the same with picture's of Andy Murray shouting.

Will this gradually become accepted like Marathon to Snickers and Opal Fruits to Starburst or will this be another Cif/Jif fiasco?

Only annoying coz it’s such an obvious marketing gimmick. They’ll change the labels, do a funny tv ad, then say the great British public have spoken and change it all back again.

Understandable, we all yearn for the salad days.

Peter Reid in the 86 Argentina game. Waste of space for both goals. Wanker

saxoneagle 06-06-2018 01:38 PM

NHS wankers, charging us £120 for an appointment which they can't schedule for 2 weeks and then won't be able to provide the report for 28 days.
