  1. Had got a bit bored with Ricky G but that was absolutely brilliant.
  2. Pubs back in the day served a community . Pensioners killing time, workers lunch time drinking before the demonization of alcohol, bonding after work, food on the bar on a sunday and yes big drinking sessions Friday/saturday . Also meeting places for coach outings, football teams , scout leaders etc. When the youth pubs split from the adults thats when the decline really set in. Jugs of sickly spirits sold in barns, no wonder sick everywhere Hey but lets not forget the common place pub fights, selling of stolen goods, strippers , rampant drink driving - I miss it.
  3. TR protests definitely planned and Catalonia has been waiting to explode. I'm not talking about the masses , just enough committed people to take the blows.
  4. I have admiration for the protesters but the lack of preparation to confront armed police amazes me. Like the TR supporters , they are look like they have walked out from a beach front bar. Wear suitable protection and as Antifa always does carry banners (the poles make decent weapons) . In the end the Stop the City frontline guys had it sussed . Also maybe be out for a walk with your pet alsatian.
  5. Can't believe this. Get another quote. 15mm size pipes can cope with most situations in an average sized house.
  6. Ging was reportedly a massive c*nt. Spunked his money big time. Robert Elms on Radio London has nothing good to say about the bloke but as Ging was a londoner I wonder if he will get a "tribute" and a cream oldie played. Family fighting over any future royalties . Does his demise cancel out his tax liabilities or do they get passed on ?

    Glasgow kiss

    you don't get up from that. Best nut I've seen
  8. Feelgoods Lee Brilleaux what a geezer. Annuver to have died too young. Oil City Confidential great film, show it to the snowflakes - scare the shite out of them.
  9. Barrie Masters - Eddie and the Hot Rods singer left us today. Saw them at the Marquee 76,life changing. Week after saw AC/DC with Bon Scott same venue. Summer of 76 , what a time - London rocked.
  10. He doesn't actually need to like art, music or fine wines but all public figures are acting at some level, so when in Rome ! Look at Farage , the odd pint down the boozer makes him the peoples favourite. I reckon 90% of the time he's down the pub its PR and its being filmed. Hope that someone on here is gonna prove me wrong. TR has many good traits but after Jimmy Saville people need a lot of convincing fund raising for charity is genuine. (Not suggesting TR is a paedo)
  11. I completely agree with you, face to face I think he's excellent. The machine behind him needs to be equally coherent and charismatic- difficult to do I know but it must be the aim. Look at Geoffrey Boycott , still being associated with things 20 plus years in the past. He should come out of prison and exhibit his artwork (water colour landscapes of course) , publish a book of romantic poetry and profess his love for classical music. Whats he going to do ? Campaign to get back into Luton FCs ground. Btw . I hate landscapes and listen to The Clash . So probably does Tommy.........
  12. TR could do with reading and listening to Matthew Syed. His view of true diversity is enlightening. TR needs a varied input into whats happening In the UK at present. He seems bombarded with either left or right extremes, both equally as bad for forming strategy.
  13. Tommy and his followers need to find a better way of presenting themselves. They are too easy to dismiss as losers. Antifa are far better at marshalling and organising themselves and whilst not having any interest in their political stance, they have learnt from the past eg stop the city protests and more recently extinction rebellion. The moral high ground must be taken and establish who the bad guys are. TR is too easy to tarnish with the right wing, ex con tag. It will be interesting in how his release from prison , is presented PR wise.
  14. My father 15 years into dementia and now 91. Been in a home for 3 years and still physically Ok. Sportsman,non smoker, hardly any alcohol, grammar school education and I think there's a few years still left in him. His side of the family are indestructible. His grandfather was in WW1 from the first day (BEF) to the last. Seems reasonably happy in the home and I visit every fortnight even though he thinks I'm a cab driver on a pick up!
  15. Btw got done for speeding in Ireland , France and USA . Paid on the spot fine in Detroit as the cop was very keen to show me his weapon ! Been breathalysed approx 13 times - all back in 80s and 90s. Never guilty . I think you would call this profiling in modern day terms.
