I like BJs remarks regarding BREXIT and how the snake oil salesmen of the EU hate us for it. A little off topic? But none the less 100% true.
What, BJ’s comments about globalists who want to destroy culture in Britain and control us through a one world government? 100% true???
You believe this sort of thing, LK? Why? Where do you get your information? Where is the evidence that BJ is correct?
Or does his wind appeal simply because it upsets people you imagine aren’t like yourself?
The thing is this. If you are on a low income, depend on the state for all kinds of things, why would on earth would you support a party that has singularly made things worse for people like you over the past 11 years?
Why on earth would you support a party that wants to shrink the state and make life even harder for folk like you? And why can’t you see the simple truth that UKIP and the Tories want you to blame immigration for everything you feel bad about right now, rather than their own ineptitude in dealing with economic disaster?
It was the same in the 1930s, when a worldwide economic crisis led to the rise of Oswald Mosely, the blackshirts, and people like Farage rousing the rabble, re-animating the brain dead, inciting them to violence in the name of patriotism.
How much more abuse from central government will you take before you see how your strings are being pulled? Why can’t you see what’s staring you in the face?
Just look around and see the folk who support this kind of stuff. There’s Alcy, the epitome of state dependent elderly, who has 20-20 vision when it comes to the club, but is completely myopic when it comes to the gulf between his own self-interest and the Tories, a party dedicated to shrinking the state. Or Les, a man who was once a paragon of community virtue, enacting the public will from a position of responsibility, before supporting UKIP so enthusiastically he now seems so ashamed he won’t even talk about it!
And then there’s jonnie, who represented UKIP, got a fat pension from the EU, and has now disappeared into obscurity, having discovered his vocation flogging children’s stories and books about bog rolls! Entirely appropriate, somehow!
And, there’s the ghost of Bill Punton, who claims the Catholics aren’t Christians, and BJ himself, a maladjusted stooge probably sponsored by UKIP/Britain First to rouse the rabble and encourage the nutters to vent their prejudices.
It’s a bent old group alright, they always are. But c’mon man, if you can’t see through this bunch of loonies right up to their b@llocks, what hope is there?
was really impressed with Callum Wilson on the wing, this lad is little but he ran rings round there defence and he is ours.
Aye, Cameron Wilson, a Goolie. I thought he was stand-out too, looks an exciting player. Pity he went off but Cox probably decided he could play a bit and wanted to see others in action.
It was pretty encouraging all round, and suprisingly entertaining too. Can’t remember the last time that happened.
Spare a thought for the guy who used to walk among the crowd home and away selling raffle tickets with the customary good cheer – Dave(?). He’s apparently been let go by the club after donkey’s years of service. Now about to launch a book ‘SUFC – Nutty Bits and Iron Filings’. Only sold privately, so I hear from a pal who saw him yesterday.
Ah, dear little Kate Andrews appearing on that hotbed of communism, er… the BBC and Newsnight. And there we were, arguing that they never feature anyone expressing sensible, centrist views like Kate!
But, the beeb really should have supported her by telling us a few reassuring facts like these these…
It’s the same old story – the government fails to fund the NHS, runs it down, and then claims it isn’t working and needs to be privatized.
Of course it needs better funding, and the funds needs to be taken from the public purse. You can’t have first world, Scandi-style health care with third world taxation.
And the biggest irony of all is that the oldies on here, who are most in need of public services, and cost the most to keep, are the same ones clamouring for privatization!! Yet more evidence, as if any were needed, that turkeys really do vote for Xmas.
Stop playing politics Rashford, and concentrate on how to take a penalty.
Those with diarrhoea should keep their wind to themselves.
Mostly agree, MK.
As Roy Keane said, it was a mistake to bring on Saka, a child of 19, to take the last pen in extra time of a cup final. Older, senior players should have stood up and stood in.
The Germans know how to do it. They practise taking pens over and over in training, and know just where they’ll put the ball, no matter who’s in goal. Well before the game they decide who the takers are, and in what order they’ll do it. That way, they minimise nerves because they know exactly what they have to do. When will England learn this simple lesson?
Aye, it’s typical of Tory black n white, binary thinking – you’re either for us or agin us, a freedom luvin libertarian or a raving Marxist. Nothing in between, no grey areas, no nuance or subtlety of thought.
When asked if she thought compulsory mask wearing in certain places was a good idea, daft woman from the Telegraph on BBC’s ‘Question Time recently said “I don’t want my country to become a Marxist state like China”.
How on earth are these people allowed on TV, as if they had any kind of authority, to comment on some of the most pressing issues affecting the country, and contribute to shaping public opinion? It’s no wonder GB is the international petri dish for Covid, and cradle of so many idiots who think like mercenary poster BJ.

Pride is being pushed on the masses to normalise degeneracy! It’s nothing but queers showing how debauched they are with kink and attempts to recruit children to the gay agenda! They want more gays! Society is being engineered to make our kids gay as part of the great replacement and population control!
Sounds like the rattle of a feverishly repressed gay man.
I, me, my, I, ….And do I think it would be helpful to anyone for me to give my view on taking a knee? No. I think it would be pointless..
With so much self-comment and appreciation I’m beginning to think Les is Bucksiron is Les!
C’mon, Brexit never held you back. How does the idolatry of blood and race sit with your Christian faith?
so what’s left to be be mega activist about?
Some examples in no particular order… the cost of housing, the cost of education, the growing pay gap, zero hours contracts, inequalities around gender and ethnicity and health…..the poverty of old age and the cost of social care where older people need to sell their houses to get it, the absence of free child care, issues around the environment and global warming… we could go on.
We should also recognize the role played by a biased media and their attacks on people like Corbyn and anyone to the left of Johnson. Largely foreign-owned and tax exiled media companies are biased against anything left of centre simply because it threatens their power and profits.
How? For starters, just take the portrayals of the leaders. As someone rightly said earlier – if the leader doesn’t wear a tie and helps refugees, he’s portrayed as a loony lefty, but if he’s an incorrigible liar and disheveled philanderer who refuses to say how many kids he’s got, as long as he wears the blue scarf, he’s alright in the eyes of 75%+ of the press, plus Fox, Sky etc. etc.
And the con trick played by press and parliament on the ‘red wall’ seats – that instead of blaming Westminster we should be blaming Brussels for the collapse of the north and all things bad – economically, politically and morally, is one Derren Brown would be proud of.
And now the arguments that “Brexit would have been great if only it had been done properly” are starting!
It’s time for Jonnie and his dad to own their own sh!t.
And here it comes, the “brexit would have been great if only the government had done it properly” arguments! Come on @bernardjenkin #brexit (especially one leaving the single market) was always a terrible idea! Time to #OwnYourShit #BrexitReality https://t.co/aTQ1IAbUqM

The post never mentions Prince Phillip!
And, it’s not vitriol, towards the royals, LK, it’s a dislike of some of the attitudes shown towards them, particularly the hatred and jealousy shown towards Harry precisely because he married a mixed race woman. As a royalist, I would have thought that you would be more defensive and protective of him in this respect.
I doubt anyone really cares whether Harry would ever be king, but when folk say ‘I’m happy because people like you are upset’ (which they aren’t), it just goes to show how messed up this country has become.
haha, too much imagination, IA!
Yep, fair comment on a spiteful narcissist hypocrite who doesn’t give a fig about anyone but himself….
The strange thing about ‘Hancock – the movie’ is that the camera seems to track him. If that’s so, who was doing it, and how did they put a motorized camera inside the smoke alarm? I’m no tech expert, but wouldn’t it be too big unless a roof panel was removed, and the mechanism was mounted inside, behind a fake alarm?
Alternatively, if it was cctcv, it suggests someone in security either saw it and sold it, or was approached and bribed to keep an eye on Hancock, by ???
Aye and what’s the point of making deals with Australian farmers which are to the detriment of farmers here? Much of Brexit was supposed to be about self-sufficiency and looking after ‘our own’. Yet now we see the Tories doing deals with Oz ‘wellies’ over cheap beef and lamb to undercut the British stuff.
And then there’s food miles. The idea of shipping meat and other products half way round the world when they’re already produced here is also to the detriment of the government’s so-called green credentials. It further illustrates not only Tory hypocrisy but how desperate they are to sign trade deals for political window-dressing.
They think it’s all legover…. and it is now!
Some hilarious updated memes here – especially Jonathan Pie’s Fergie-style hairdryer!
The hilarity just keeps a-coming.
From effing hopeless to hopelessly effing!
Did Cummings leak Hancock’s cock-up?
And I say a union flag deserves to fly proudly over the foodbanks and homeless shelters, too!
But we must be careful. This performative patriotic flag-shagging is up there with pound-shop souvenir tat! It’s up there with bobby’s helmets! Red phone box tea caddies! Clocks of parliament! Biscuit tins with village views!! Beafeater tea towels!! Key fobs of our glorious HM!! An ornamental miniature Tory MP with his trousers down (for what could be more English)!!!…..
Johnny tourist foreigner loves it as much as BJ loves the exclamation mark!!!!
Looks like Roger Daltrey got fooled again, too.June 21, 2021 at 3:50 pm in reply to: BJ is reactionary, populist, nationalistic and sometimes even xenophobic #209033
Just because ‘any political leader in this country would have been like a fish out of water’ doesn’t excuse them from a bashing. On that basis, they all deserve it, particularly as many other countries coped much better at the beginning.
Of course, sir. Will the 1970 Gran Reserva from Lopez Heredia be acceptable? And what would sir like with his Rioja? It does go well with an all day breakfast (seriously!).
Aye – young unaged Rioja – best drink it slightly chilled with something light like tortilla/chorizo/chicken/salmon, or by itself. Crianza/Reserva/Gran Reserva – the names can be confusing but basically just mean more aging. All go best with roast red meat. The wood (of the barrel in the aging) gives it body which cuts through the oil and grease, so you still get flavour. No need to chill, room temp is best. White and Rose are both good too. Aged white is ace if you can find it. Not many bodegas do it now. Pricey mind.
And which Rioja would sir like to order?
Funny you should mention that, NI. A different sesh in the smoke took in the Rising Sun in EC1, an acclaimed Sam Smiths pub, but bitter (a SS one, I forget which) was chilled and tasted like something was wrong with it. V. disappointing, and central London prices inevitably provoke gasps and exclamations of disbelief. Timothy Spall was in the bar (as himself). Don’t know what he made of it.
Oh well, staying at home with some decent Rioja reminds me of what I’m not missing!
England 4th in the world? Or in Europe? How on earth is this calculated? I’d safely rank them behind Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, France…. and maybe more. Maybe even behind Scotland after last night’s showing.
Without local knowledge or the GBG or whatever I find it’s difficult to get a decent draught bitter or mild. Maybe I just need to get out more. And as mentioned above, beer brewed abroad is often lower quality (tasteless and weaker) for GB, so you can’t rely on getting the same thing you had on your holidays in the local supermarket or pub.
Does anyone brew their own these days?
Jack ‘the hat’? Aye eye, East End gangster legends…. Too right about forgetting the romance of good old fahhhmly men and working-class heroes that beat the system, the reality is they were all pretty nasty to the last.
Jobby is a fake.
He’s a writer paid to do jobs like this by organisations that want to appeal to the weak minded as IA(?) rightly describes them. The style is actually quite professional, but anyone able to write as professionally wouldn’t be capable of such petty, stupid, small-minded content, unless they were paid to produce it.
He’s a sort of gun for hire, a mercenary journo, probably in the pay of UKIP, BNP etc., and sent to drop his ‘dirty bombs’ over constituencies like Scun.
Les you know a thing or two about ghost writing, and the Jonnies dabble, now don’t they? Whaddya make of him??
Aye, ‘beer’ not ‘bean’ or ‘been’, and a Saint Michael, not Heineken…
Had Heineken abroad and it was quite pleasant, hoppy and some body to it, but it usually tastes thin and metallic here. Bottled SM I think is ok, refreshing without the metal or the harshness of so many lagers.
Now, what is this trend in pubs towards offering only cold, thin, fizzy ‘beer’? Bitter, especially from a cask is increasingly hard to find. Mild has pretty much disappeared. Anything that’s not lager seems to be like a chilled light ale, homogenised, pasteurised stuff.
Once upon a time, beer was a living product and there was life in a glass, but now it’s just bubbles.
I was recently in the Blind Beggar in London’s east end. Historic pub with its own wiki article, legendary for its gangland connections. But, useless staff that didn’t know what bitters they had, and one who even asked her colleague in all seriousness ‘what’s bitter?’ I think she was Spanish. Good job the Krays weren’t around.
At £8.45 for a pint and a shandy, it was a personal best (or worst). I needed a drink to recover, and the chilled fizz kept me up all night. But, is this trend really customer led, or is it just a cheap way to get drinks to the pubs in a condition which needs no care, expertise or special conditions?
It’s about time we returned to proper measurements of yards, furlongs and bushels!
In any case it’s ridiculous to think these are ‘British’ measurements.
Weren’t they mostly Roman in origin, NI? They were good at measuring things and writing it down with the numerals we’ve still got on clocks, films, tv progs, in church and so on.
There’s virtually nowt that’s indigenous to England. Jobby needs a history lesson!
Ah, missed it – had the been goggles on (San Miguel).
Most of us run on dual systems. Miles per gallon v litres of petrol at the pump, miles v km on your speedometer, your weight in stones / pounds v kilos, UK shoe size v EU size, and socket sizes too, as every vintage car mechanic knows, where there are several different standards, etc. etc.
A few things are still imperial tho’ – pints and gills in the pub… inches for your tv screen size (oddly, most of the world also uses this measurement for tv), tyres inflated in PSI, land bought and sold in acres, and the odd martyr in the market still selling his spuds by the pound (and getting fined in pounds, too).
And a few things have only ever been metric, like engine capacity (cc).
Is the crossbar still 8ft high?
