  1. You are in one of the biggest cities in the world with Embassies of all the major nations in a short distance large international companies run from there. If you want to make a impact and a change there is huge scope to do that even in London. Blockade the Chinese and USA embassies go to the financial district, but no they stop traffic, Stop the trains glue themselves to buildings, climb on Trucks. At the very best its amateurish at the worst incompetent .
  2. How deluded are some folk. and again what good will it do?. Uk 5th in the ccpi index with the 21st biggest population in the world. we could be carbon neutral on Friday and it wouldnt mean a bean. All this protesting demonstrating blockading London is nothing more than Virtue signaling. These people dont really care about the planet all they are interested in is they are seen to do something which will give them exposure but no real result. until the rest of the world gets to the level we are currently at then the planet is doomed. if you believe the scientists that we are close to the tipping point then strutting around London attaching oneself to a building is not going to cut it.
  3. I just dont get it. ive tried i really have Pete but what good will it do reports the actress Emma Thompson is attending the Demo. she apparently had to walk a short distance because her driver couldnt get past the Blockade i joke not
  4. So the dream of a quad is finished. A mate of mine a city fan ( i know city fan and lives here) said Var has cheated them out of it!. Unreal dont take long to forget Brighton.
  5. Expect an all English Final Spurs still my tip to win the cup. Lpool should overcome a overrated barca and i expect Chelsea to win the euro league
  6. mass arrests currently in Oxford Square also reports of two people glued to the underside of a truck for 2 days Lol
  7. Seeing as its quiet at work today a few pictures of myself and my family. First me my wife and our son. Then the wammell
  8. Day 4 protests still going in the city of London. Traffic still backed up three people in court as we speak laughing and pleading not guilty. never got that willing to go to jail for their actions but then plead not guilty. No backbone.
  9. Joshua and Millers upcoming fight may not go ahead after Millers drugs test results come back with adverse findings https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/47959004
  10. They even brought a boat from the otherside of the country via a truck they have already smashed up the shell building and the city is packed with middle class white people prancing around with flowers in there hair lol might go down to have a laugh
  11. Im no Climate change denier i understand that our actions are helping contribute to the warming of this planet but i just wish protests would be better thought out ive seen many pictures and live streaming of the protest in London and the amount of plastic flags banners water bottles that are being used has not passed me by also surely bringing traffic to a standstill is causing more fuel consumption and car fumes being emitted into the atmosphere 2 weeks prptest apparently in london and various other cities in the world.
  12. Speaking of protests one currently going on in London by the extinction rebellion group many roads blocked in the city centre

    Some what related to this subject but a question to all, How far as parents should you go to protect/help your children?. Are you of the mind set that problems that arise to your kids should be dealt with by them or would you step in to solve the issue for them?. Of course age is a factor i understand but at what age should they fight there own battles. I say this as over the past few days i myself have had this conundrum. Has someone who didnt have any parents present whilst growing up on many occasions i had to sort out such issues myself.

    To be honest most of this saftness that seems to be around at the moment is only ever with a very few people most people carry on with their everyday lives thankfully

    Not Music related not sure if its younger generation related, But really how silly are things getting 3 stories in the space of a few days Waitrose apologises for racist ducks https://news.sky.com/story/waitrose-apologises-for-selling-racist-chocolate-ducklings-after-criticism-11688611 Burger King removes racist advert https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-47866381 And Co-op creates Gigerbread gender neutral biscuit https://www.itv.com/news/2019-04-10/co-op-to-release-gender-neutral-gingerbread-person/ Just another day in the 21st century
  16. Great Day out Not the result i wanted but its been a fantastic season bring on 19/20
  17. Not a bad day today suns out decent weather. This time next week though (gfs6z) shows cold weather for anytime of year with temps in the day for next friday for many areas around 3-6 c in the wind could feel below 0c however still a long way to go to late for me starting to hope for much warmer conditions
  18. Wolves break there transfer record with the Deal to bring Jimenez on a permanent deal for 30 million he has been amazing this season for us to be honest cant believe we have spent that much when a few ago we were in league 1
  19. Strange game really Atmosphere was quite flat imo at the ground yesterday (compared to most of the season) main thing is no injuries going into the Semi Final Although UTD played better than a few weeks back they are still quite away from being a top class side as for us? another step towards 7th
  20. If he wishes to take the job i think Moyes would be a good shout. Seems to get the best out of ordinary players with his organisation skills. Might work out well

    Having watched a programme last night on some strange cable channel it looked into the classic sitcoms of the 70s/80s and debated whether they would be allowed to air today ( if a new idea) in there full unedited glory. Having sampled 30 sitcoms from that period the conclussion was that 19 would have to be edited and 11 would not even make it to air. a sample of the 11 that would not be aired today were Love Thy Neighbour it aint half hot mom Till death us do part Mind Your Language Curry and Chips And a sketch by Spike milligan (the pakistan daleks) These were classed as either racist Xenophobic or Homophobic Is there still a place for comedy such as this or should this be placed in a bygone era?. An interesting point also is that a series a few months back a sit com called Citizen kahn ( a muslim living in birmingham who was played by a muslim man) received numerous of complaints and was forced to cancel the last series have we lost the ability to laugh at ourselves or is certain comedy no out of bounds?.

    Used to love in sickness and in health. And beyond all of the folk who hate it and call it racist,sexist, xenophobic the show itself is dripping in irony, a Bigoted older man becoming acquainted with a gay black carer a Irish Son in law and a disabled wife, he himself being a working class man who supports the conservative party. just wonderful writing. the show itself is more lampooning Alf himself then anyone else

    It is tricky but for me leave it as it is if you are offended then dont watch. There will always be people offended by something Look at the films like "the passion of the Christ, Last temptation of christ" Life of brian," even Apocalypse now was banned in South Korea. Strangely for its ANTI war stance Its history leave it and enjoy it for what it is In so many ways the world is more Liberal but in many others we seem to have become much more reserved Case in point from last year comedy sketch show was trying to be forced off the air because of the content regarding Corbyn. https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/news/3151/corbyn_sketch_writer_against_censorship/
