    I spend a lot of times on beaches and have done for many years. I’ve never ever seen anyone in a suit on a beach.
    I’m sure the duchess? is wearing expensive clothing that ordinary people can’t afford!
    The royal pr machine showing again how out of touch they are

    I quit 7 years ago after going into rehab for gambling. I was the only gambler in a 20-strong group of alcoholics and my contract obligated me to keep away from alcohol so I wouldn't trigger the others. Also, their stories were massively fucked up and scary, like the 50yo who fell asleep drunk while cooking and burned her house down - with her mum inside. There were also quite a lot of seemingly successful, highly functional alcoholics and their stories sounded too familiar for comfort. 
    Took a few years to adapt to this new lifestyle but now I can have one hell of a night on a pub crawl or in a nightclub without paying through the nose, doing something utterly idiotic or nursing hangover for the rest of the weekend. It helps to keep my missus happy when I'm going out on my own.

    My reply to you earlier was a bit rushed apologies, this article from before the referendum from my beloved Guardian is actually pretty excellent, it'll give you a better account of what I have been trying to get across. Its the best account of what has happened and why that I can find. Of course they wouldn't publish something like this now.

    Regarding your personal situation, well we sound like we are from different generations, I'm in my thirties, my personal experiences have been very different. 
    The Brexit vote was according to almost all the accounts that I can find a largely working class vote for change. They wanted change because they have been marginalised, exploited and derided. I think this happened because it benefited other sections of society. Those sections of society encouraged it by voting for it.

    Agreed, but I would suspect the masters would prefer May to be kept in place as she is doing an awesome job of fucking up Brexit.

    As someone else said I just mention a forum I follow in passing 
    Not something I’d share in the real world, a naughty secret 😜

    Thank you 👍
    i guess the thing is, even if you didn’t, it would not matter as everyone has a right to their own opinion. Especially here on dosbods. 👍👍

    I'm reading to replace her in the interim just to deliver Brexit.  I would take anyone at this stage as long as they were a true Brexiteer.

    May made to sit outside for 6 hours whilst the EU leaders discuss her request for an extension. She just loves to be humiliated on our behalf. Why doesn't she just resign and fuck off.

    Well, I did ask a few leading questions. Like wondering why there'sso  little coverage of the Gilets jaunes on the So-Called BBC.
    I wasn't going to tell them I ran the bloody place, just an innocent and occasional poster. And also mention a couple of other similar sites.

    Way too modest. If you hadn’t done this, then it would not exist. 
    We were thrashing around on tos with no home and no future. You gathered us up and created this little safe space. 
    Respect and thank you 👍

    Thanks everyone, not false modesty but I'm sure somebody else would have set it up if I hadn't.
    Also wanted to ask, I (loosely) know someone online who's a UKIP member and ran for councillor. Contemplating asking them to join DOSBODS, do you think this is a good idea?
    Has anyone else ever told a friend etc about DOSBODS 'in real life'?

    I was surprised Adam Johnson was still in prison. At the time seemed a disproportionate penalty and sentence.
    As Spy pointed out he met the girl (15) in a nightclub, later realised his mistake. Perhaps he should sue said nightclub for putting him in danger by not enforcing a door policy.

    Yes, perhaps weight loss also due to stress. I wouldn’t like to be a police employee in a city area in France having to defend politicians and how they’ve trashed the standard of living for decent indigenous workers. I sympathise with uk police force too. One day they may have to choose whose side they’re on!

    Is there a petition to rerun the 1997 election?. It's safe to say nobody knew what they were voting for that time.

    Did you make that 2 cake? No!? Very impressive if you did.
    Anyway, Happy Birthday follow degenerates. This place remains an informed and font of wisdom; an online oasis in the madness.
    All heil @spunko. You did and do a good thing.

    So glad that I can come here. Worryingly it seems like the most normal place on earth. 
    Mr B refers to it as Oddbods, he’s probably quite accurate. 
    Thankyou @spunko
