Re: IDS calls "War!" on the Great Unwashed.

Back on to the real enemies. I saw some BBC news basically announcing an attack on the recipients of Disabled Living Allowance as most of them get it for drink and alcohol related conditions. But someone ie the Tory's kitchen cabinet have revived the old it's just a sore back myth . and the there's...

Re: What are you watching?

I am a bit late responding to the Panorama programme. Being lucky enough to work in Social Care my call on what constitutes abuse is much less than other peoples - i.e. that I would notice and challenge certain subtle unprofessional conduct or incidents that I wasn't happy with. This is only my opin...

Re: Formula One

I'm not Lewis Hamilton's biggest fan but the reaction to his Ali G quip is outrageous. It was a flippant remark to a situation that was pissing him off. Even if you think his stance in incorrect there was no genuine intention to imply racism. So much for my Indianapolis prediction. I'm just glad I n...

Re: Gil Scott Heron RIP

Dotun Adebayo was very upset when announcing the breaking news of Heron's death on his Radio5Live Up All Night show on Saturday morning. He paid further tribute during the World Music discussion section of his following programme.

Both should be available online now.

Re: Formula One

Unusually I am enjoying the Monaco GP. Strange to see a couple of pit stop communication difficulties. Anyway, it's the Indianapolis 500 tonight. I have money on either Franchitti making it a hat trick of wins at 4/1 or Will Power at a surprising price of 15/2. Placed each way bets on them both as o...

Re: Best Ever.....

I went through a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions reading this post Shug! With you on the AC/DC and Bill Hicks, apart from that you're off your trolley. DIET IRN BRU!! My DNA curls at the thought. And what's the point of a fried pizza with no crunch?? Honestly :wink: Prior to 1998 I would have wh...

Re: One for the railway heads

Doorstop,

I agree completely. My use of language referring to parasites and vultures may have negated the comment relating to how this is an important service may have made this unclear.

Sorry mate

Re: One for the railway heads

Could it possibly be that they won't reverse the direction of the esculator - so as to prevent people who are blind or partially sighted from incurring injury, who may not be aware of the change in direction.? What's stopping them from falling in the current hole where up escalator used to be? Any ...

Re: What song are you listening to?

Don't know why I feel obliged to disclose this information but I bought a delay ring for the auld general about two years ago only for the thing to fucking snap upon its first use.

I have came to the end of an 18 months basic BT Broadband contract. They want to move me onto the BT Vision option which comes with a shiny new BT Vision Box. According to the gumph that has just arrived through my door this is connected to the internet even if it is to use Freeview channels. I want...

Re: Frankie Boyle

Go back fifty years or so to the present day and the 'Shock comedian provokes shock' stories seem to be repeated copy and paste jobs with only the comics name and the topic causing the shock changing. Within comedy there shall always be the social/political commentators such as Bill Hicks or Mark Th...

Re: Western SMT Bus Company

I remember the Western SMT services well as a child living in Halfway, Cambuslang in the late 70's and early 80's. I have always wondered why many vehicles were so filthy that it was difficult to see out of the windows. Furthermore manky water used to accumulate on the trough created by the rubber o...
