  1. All they would need to do was elect a party into power on the back of that commitment. A bit like the upcoming election in May, in fact, just the other way round.
  2. Me neither, I blame Thatcher for everything... [emoji846]
  3. Everyone's first thought was car park in the sky. You have to admire the dedication all the same - mibbes the face masks kept them that wee bit cosier... [emoji846]
  4. In his defence he is genuinely like that. He's a Rangers fan but his daughter has bought Buddies season tickets for her 3 kids and he's been known to take them to games - if asked, they're the only reason he's there! [emoji846]
  5. The only source that came up when I (very carefully!) Googled the story was in the Sun. Shull's absence might explain why it hasn't been on here... [emoji846]
  6. Aye, Bullseye was before we moved here, though - keep meaning to try and find the full episode.
  7. The guy on the right's my next door neighbour.
  8. Cos that's your job? Aye, fair enough, then. [emoji23][emoji1787][emoji23]
  9. At the risk of repeating myself...
  10. It's not a strawman argument, I answered your question and gave you the analogy I used. I genuinely thought it must be similar (psychologically) to being in the trenches when I was reading it hence the analogy.
  11. Maintaining the WW1 analogy, I imagined she did it in the same way as all those poets - Owen, Sassoon, Brooke, Graves et al - managed to write about the horrors they experienced while they were experiencing them. Are you questioning them, too?
  12. Are you the reincarnation of a WW1 General? It would explain a lot...
  13. No further comment required, from me or from anyone else. Here's the view from the front line: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/feb/06/ive-been-called-satan-dr-rachel-clarke-on-facing-abuse-in-the-covid-crisis
  14. Nice to see (nearly) all the bots using proper gammon grammar...
  15. That IS the simplistic version, don't let me get started, you'll never get me off that soapbox! [emoji1787][emoji23][emoji1787]
  16. I don't care about the figures, it's the principle of the thing that sticks in my throat. If you honestly can't see that he's pandering to the electorate who gave him Brexit with empty rhetoric and soundbites to maintain his voter base and that he doesn't give two f**ks about either them or the man who tried to do a good thing then nothing I say will remove those blinkers. BoJos is just one of the people I'm happy to continue to slur, along with 99.999% of all politicians in all parties and that's something we should all remember. I prefer to judge governments & politicians by their promises, actions and outcomes and BoJos and his ilk are behaving in precisely the manner I expect of them. So no surprise there, then. And the current shenanigans within the SNP is another good example of politicians being politicians.
  17. Because of the points that are being made about the political use of the old fella by people in the other thread, most of which I agree with. Simplistically (I know my audience [emoji846]), a good lot of what's going on to celebrate what the gentleman on the left achieved is a distraction to deflect from what the bawbag on the right is doing.
  18. I agree that the topic on Captain Tom isn't the place so I'll put this in here - this sums up perfectly the reason people are getting upset about how a centenarian who tried to a good thing is being treated by the Tories.
  19. They would've been just where the roads on the left are, you can see the same William Street flats.
  20. I'm surprised, given you must get up to that smell every day I thought you'd have been inured to it by now. "Who can I bully today? Oh, I'll call them snowflakes, that'll rattle them!" Wishful thinking of the highest order... [emoji23][emoji1787][emoji23]
  21. Yet you feel the need to comment? Beware of snowflakes, they'll f**k you up if you're not careful. 'Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, says he can see why it was chosen. “On their own, snowflakes are lightweight. Whichever way the wind blows, they will just be taken with it. Collectively, though, it’s a different story. A lot of snowflakes together can make for a blizzard, or they can make for a very big dump of snow. In which case, people will start to look up.”' Speaking as a c100kg fat bastard snowflake, don' t forget that the word 'lightweight' is a metaphor in this instance.
