I was listening to the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2, the subject matter, centred around “the right to take offense” struck a chord with me. In the programme, the author Claire Fox described her experiences with young adults which inspired her to write the book, “I Find That Offensive“.… Continue Reading
Here’s yet another tweet from yours truly to @BBCRadio2, which they will ignore, as per usual.
The BBC, which is paid for by the British Public under the licence fee (Read: Thinly veiled tax), are intent on shoving the opinion of religious crazys at us pretty much constantly; further, to add insult aimed towards the thinking majority of the world – they don’t even acknowledge the criticism.… Continue Reading
Well… We recently decided to believe the advertising (Silly, I know), and upgrade our TalkTalk Broadband package to include the new ‘Fibre’ package, which claims to be 5x faster than the standard ADSL2 which we had.
Well… Fibre isn’t fibre, in this case it’s VDSL2, and whist there may be a fibre somewhere along the route, probably to a green box at the end of the street, there is no fibre to our house.… Continue Reading
Just answering a closed group thread on Facebook. Typed in the below. How to summarise a life.
22 Years ago I had nothing. I worked hard, first job in retail which gradually worked up to 70+ hours a week and a near miss with a break-down over 7 years. Second job (In I.T.),… Continue Reading
We’ve used IKEA (The Cardiff Store) many times over the years, and had varying degrees of service from the staff, but this latest visit has been the worst yet, and I sincerely hope that IKEA will not be a part of my future for as long as I can foresee.… Continue Reading
Why are you so sexist towards men?
I’m a man. Yes, it’s true. It’s also true that I like to buy clothes, and shoes. Going naked is frowned upon.
For years now Supermarkets have done a decent job for women in the UK, the ranges are always expanding, and what’s more all the sizes are there – no longer do you find discrimination against the larger female form, in most cases.… Continue Reading
The current bunch of Tory wankers in power have bowed to the wishes of non-thinking-tabloid-press twatbags, introducing a fucking sugar tax. S U G A R tax… Now I understand the intentions behind this are basically to reduce sugar intake for the general public, but tax is the wrong way to do it.… Continue Reading
All of the points raised are choices. The woman, in control, has these choices to make, if she makes them, then it’s of her own free will, and nobody can be held to ransom for her own choices.… Continue Reading
Today I posted a complaint to #Tesco on their Facebook page, it got deleted because it contained the word #crap. So, in this instance #Tesco have chosen to ignore their customer and instead chosen to become the language police.
So I, for one, won’t be using them, they will not receive any more of my money.… Continue Reading
It looks like the BBC has once again chosen to support violence, death and suffering with it’s continued support of religion, not even paying attention to it’s own survey of the views of the licence fee paying public.
It amazes me why society at large is still pandering to religious idiots, devoting public resources to them, and giving them tax exemptions. … Continue Reading
Found this delightful article on the BBC today which compares fat people with hard core smokers and alcoholics… Seems they’ve fucked up again…
When was the last time a fat person got sent to jail after beating up their partner and kids for a sugar fix….
When was the last time you heard of a sugar junkie breaking in and robbing someone, then stabbing them in a sugar induced raged, spending the rest of their life behind bars?… Continue Reading
This is a good one, perhaps what is a minor win for the average motorist…
Driving home from work last night and had a near miss with an SGD Security van who undertook me on a dual carriage way and forced his way into a space only 6 inches larger than his van, between me and the car in front – complete wanker of a driver and a dangerous move to say the least!…… Continue Reading
One word: CLUSTERFUCK. What a complete nightmare I had dealing with these two.
To be fair though, compared to XDP, BedroomFurnitureWorld weren’t too bad.
The issue: Complete lack of communication.
– I ordered around £700 worth of furniture from BedroomFurnitureWorld.
The first problem was that I didn’t receive a confirmation from the order until I called them the following day and nagged.… Continue Reading
Used the BBC IPlayer to watch the latest Doctor Who… This is the third episode in Season 8 (The new series of course). Each episode I’ve cringed at some of the ideas which have been aimed at the 16:00 viewing slot. I’m not against making programs kid-friendly, but please, this is going too far now.… Continue Reading
I was ALMOST duped into taking out a membership for the Gourmet Society today, a nice offer came through for a year membership at 30 quid.
Very glad I Googled the shit of the potential rip-off-merchants. Just go have a read on the This Is Money Blog.
The Society try to get you to join BEFORE you know how many restaurants (Which you’d actually dine in) are in your area.… Continue Reading
