Seeing this 80's music stuff
at 00:44 7 Jun 2020

and not yet gone through to see what's caused it, but I bet without searching for it you can't name the artist/group that had the most weeks on the Uk chart in the 80's

Seriously you'll never get it, and if somebody has dissed 80's music (herbi?) then this is probably gold for them.

I can't believe this is a real headline.
at 07:10 6 Jun 2020

I heard a clip from this on the radio on the way home from work. I wasn't really paying attention when the news item started, as my ears tuned in so my jaw dropped.

I then laughed at myself for being such a tw4t, it clearly wasn't what I thought I had heard and my own assumptions filling in the gaps, no way a politician would be that dumb.

I then got home and saw some news headlines!

One of my best friends has passed away
at 06:07 6 Jun 2020

Feel for you Dan, a horrible, horrible thing.

Speaking to his Mother will be a good thing to do, when I was in my early 20's my best friend aged 24 died in a road accident. A couple of days later I saw his Father and I just wanted to hide, couldn't face speaking to him. He came up to me and we did have a chat, one of the things he said to me was how nice it was to actually talk to someone because he'd seen people actually cross the road to avoid him, worried about what to say. That taught me a lesson there.

Good luck, I hope it turns out to be a good thing in the long run.

There does seem to be a smidgeon more happening on the jobs front in the last couple of weeks, I've been looking and applying for stuff like crazy since end of March after my tourist based business sunk.

First day back at work yesterday, looking likely I'll be doing parcel deliveries for the world's richest man, hardly my dream job but needs must at the moment.

What’s the point of Parliament? (At this time specifically)

It's to remind us what self serving weasels look like.

One group sit one side looking smug, the others sit across looking annoyed, then at the end of the day they all head home, collect their salary and work on feathering their nest.

Those 1930's kits with the white sleeves look classy, would like a modern version of that.

As I understand it a lot of the major roads are going to be seeing no drivers anyway, at least for the immediate future.

Covered here, following a quick search

Not for us I know, but Trevor Brooking never played for anybody bar the Hammers did he?

Wouldn't it be great if one day we were talking about the likes of Downes like this, never going to happen for us these days.

It's all gone political now hasn't it
at 09:47 11 May 2020

I think it's a desperate attempt to continue to look like they're on top of things
Police across East London have been noisily complaining that they are fighting a losing battle with regards to people in parks and public spaces. Sections of the media have been noisily crying out to know what the exit strategy is.
Here (in East London) the footfall has risen massively over the last couple of weeks, a lot of small businesses and cafes have reopened, with social distancing kind of in place.

It looked like a lot of people were getting to the point of having had enough and just doing their own thing anyway, the new messages seemed to have moved with this attitude rather than be draconian about the existing one.

I genuinely fear this all starts again, bigger, in the winter, if we've managed to squeak through from this point.

I had the same, actually they've been pretty good so far. I did wonder if they'd singled me out as someone who's clearly had no income now for a couple of months and is on course to crash and burn, apparently not.

What he said, along with any damp getting in anywhere?

Could there be anything with a heating element on the circuit, immersion for example?
Fridges are another favourite? I know not from what you said, but I thought it worth mentioning.


You could of course have a faulty RCD.

To be honest, I thought it was so absurd that I was unable to see beyond anybody just ridiculing it. I had no intention of attempting to spread his views or legitimise them in any way.

If people do see it as bad taste I'll happily delete?

Deleted the post, it appears it was ill judged and I had no intentions of giving a nutcase a broader platform.

For those that missed it and want to know, it was some absurd message by David Icke who seems to feel that Covid19 is a big conspiracy.

Just had the depressing realisation...
at 08:12 18 Apr 2020

You have to feel for players at lower league clubs who will be out of contract in a week or two, unlikely to have ever earned a lot of money and will have little chance of earning a new deal elsewhere for some time.

I don't wish ill on any individual club but collectively I'd love to see the football bubble burst.

What's going to drive YOU to an axe-murder rampage during all this?
at 09:42 13 Apr 2020

Joggers, runners, whatever you want to call them.

The vast majority of people when out are great, leaving space and keeping their distance.

Then you've got the joggers who have their earphones in and for whom the only thing that matters in the world is their run and the quickest route from A-B regardless of who else happens to be along the way.

They are consistently the worst by a country, well inner city, mile round here.
