    Great Guy got a reaction from XswampyX in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    I'm watching a programme on BBC about the murder of Stephen Lawrence. Ffs, the black community are suffering an epidemic of killing each other and the So-Called BBC decide to do a programme on a murder 25 years ago.
    There have been racist murders of whites that get no where as near much attention. 
    This is why I hate the So-Called BBC. They continually paint the white community as aggressors and the non white community as victims of white racism. I honestly think the So-Called BBC increase racial tensions. They piss the White community off by constantly telling us how racist and intolerant we are. They continually tell the non white community how horrible white people are.
    I thinks it's about time that non whites showed us a little appreciation for allowing them into a first world country..... This constant complaining is getting boring.

    Tbh, I don't believe someone could come here as a kid and never go back to their home country for a visit. They must have been back home to see grandparents and for family weddings etc. 
    I bet they have went back home for visits and used Jamaican passports...
    Sorry, if they don't have a British passport but have a Jamaican one they can't consider themselves British...

    Imho, windrush is a relative non story. You can't tell me that the So-Called BBC can't find more important stories that some Jamaicians that have been in the UK for fifty years and never bothered getting British passports..
    Where were the So-Called BBC during the likes of Rotherham? How about the So-Called BBC tells us about Christians in the Middle East? Or about white farmers in Africa? How about some solid investigation about third worlders abusing the NHS? Windrush is just another excuse to bash whitey for being so racist.

    I worked with someone that took months off with stress every few years. IMHO, anyone that takes time off with stress should be demoted.... They clearly can't function at the level they've been promoted to.

    its everywhere the self loathing, you read that statement about enriching, but what does that mean that the existing Welsh/British culture is somehow lacking. These fucking cultures that are going to enrich us, barbaric, backwards cultures, stuck in a medieval mindset .

    On the 10 o clock news the Beeb have been trotting out a line about how the the Windrush issues have arisen because since 2010 immigration policy has been tightened, then tightened further(the words used by that lying-by-omission bitch kuensberg). Nothi
    WTF! Over that period the non-EU immigration has been rocketing and the EU/nonEU totals have been over 300k a year!
    So they obviously want the millions of new Benny claimers more than the mainly now-integrated people from the 70s. Now why would that be?

    It's easy to slag the police but IMHO they do a difficult job and are overwhelmingly decent people...
    One of my brother's mates is a cop. Seemingly he went to the scene of a burning car and there was a charred body in the drivers seat. The fire was almost out and he opened the car door, the oxygen got in and the fire started up again, the "body" then starts moving because she's still alive...
    Seemingly it was a suicide attempt. Tbh, that would give me nightmares.

    Great Guy reacted to InLikeFlynn in FTSE 1999   
    This. Most investors will have added money to their portfolios over the years through lump sum investing and dividend reinvestment, so the single point scenario is not reflective of most investors' positions. Also, you can pick your timescale and index to tell any story you like.  Here's the 10 year FTSE250 - it's nearly tripled even without dividend payments.

    The watch hadn’t been serviced since 2001 and kept time for the few days that I wore it before sending it off. If it was gaining/losing time the difference was imperceptible. Okay the service, for the value I couldn’t justify a proper Rolex service so went with a reputable guy in the Midlands £140 for the service but the part (something to do with the winder) was £210.

    I've got a Seiko 5. Lovely watch, but gains about 30 seconds a day.

    I'd completely sack off Rolex and get a quality watch you don't need to worry to much about when wearing.
    May I recommend Nite Watches of Christchurch.
    Nite Watches is an independent British watch company that uses, quality swiss quartz Ronda movements, British design and un-rivalled and self-powered tritium illumination technology.

    I would think the Marquess would be to your understated style of elegance, reliability and practicality.

    They have just launched an automatic as well, but I destroy them due to overwinding them when moubtain biking.
    I have an Icon model and it is bulletproof and ultra reliable to about 2 or 3 seconds a month mine indulges in sport and mountain biking and takes knock without damage plus I can read it in complete darkness without a torch.
    The big plus is if I trash it I won't cry too much and will treat myself to another cos for around £325 they are awesome.

    The modern Rolex is a foul beast. The one above on the other hand is beautiful - it doesn't matter if it's not 100% accurate.

    I've got a Breitling Avenger. You can get used ones for quite reasonable prices,  well by Swiss watch standards anyway... IWC are really understated if that's your thing too. 
    Personally i find rolex to be slightly gaudy but each to their own! (The modern ones that is). Especially the rose gold ones.

    I have to admit I have an automatic Seiko 5 (it winds itself up when you move your arm). It cost £70 and is accurate to within a minute a month or something. Tbh, I just find it awesome that a cheap mechanical watch can be so good. I bet it's better than a top Rolex of thirty years ago.
    Any chance of a pic? Where did you get it from?

    This one.

    Not mine but the same, and similar condition.  I had to pay out to have a part made privately to get it working despite the Rolex claims about being always able to fix them.
    My grandad's watch on my dad's side and I also have my grandad's watch on my mum's side which is more valuable.
    I don't quite know how I ended up with both as combined there are about twenty grandchildren and I'm not acquisitive but somehow I do.  I have just been reminded how very pleased I am about that.
