  1. The BBC is, in my opinion, forcing it upon us. We definitely were laughing at Alf Garnett and It ain't half hot mum was written by an Indian and the blacked up character was that Indian, Michael Bates. When played as a repeat I do not accept that I cannot see what we once enjoyed again because someone has decided to make a political point. They can stick their political stance where the sun don't shine and accept that fee speech means that we should be free to look again at old TV programs and old films without political interference.

  2. I’m also in quite a long cul-de-sac and most of the time it’s litter free. It’s all bungalows with mainly older people and I think people here would pick up the odd bit of litter and bin it. A few years ago though I turned into the drive behind another car and couldn’t believe my eyes when a whole load of Mc Donald’s rubbish was tossed from the window. Given it’s a cu-de-sac I thought he’s going to get a piece of my mind for that, so I followed him down the road. Unbelievably he decided to try and turn around in my drive of all places, so I followed him in and he was going nowhere. The l

  3. Even worse they are getting the BBC to spread the mud now because election rules permit it at the moment never mind that large numbers of grumpies have postal vote and it is polling day right now for many. This kind of story is not permitted on election day but as usual the BBC are helping the left out.

  4. So where did they get the pictures from? If it was social media then surely whoever posted them must have some knowledge of who it was. or at least where the original pictures originated. No matter who it was they will have left some sort of electronic trail the police can track. Hope when they do catch them they arrest them for attempted murder.

  5. Aside from miscasting ethnics in period dramas, like Anne Bolyn; they're putting out some serious brain washing for younger kids, with a "horrible histories" prog, full of woke claims. EG: That the original Brits, as in Cro-Magnon, were actually black; well unless they ran here from Africa, I doubt that's the case. It takes 20,000 years to alter melanin levels to adapt to lower sunlight levels, which is the more likely time of travel. That the Roman Army on Hadrians Wall, were black, I suppose we could call them the original "Black Watch" ! There's no doubt that from within an Empire th

  7. I think back to the comedians, Bernard Manning in particular and also Charlie Williams VERY non PC the pair of them. Maybe we should stop showing war films a sit might upset the Geermans "they bombed our chippie" as Stan Boardman would say. (don't mention the war) All those hysterical dramas with the plucky brits fighting just about everybody at the time like the Spanish,french,Zulus,Boers, heathens and other infidels and the Romans (what have they ever done for us those Romans eh) Even kids programes are not free of offense. The latest being peppa pig of all things. We grew up

  8. Apparently under Woke culture we have to refer to everyone by their "preferred pronouns" and also make our own "preferred pronouns" known to everyone else, e.g. "he/him", "she/her", "they/them". I've decided my preferred pronouns are "Ho/hum" 😉🤣.

  9. Some of the humour we enjoyed in the past was on reflection quite racist although to be fair it was often the case that the person making the comments was usually portrayed as being a bit eccentric and OTT with their views. So, we could say that really, we were laughing at Alf Garnet rather than with him. Maybe this extreme use of humour in the past did affect some people and could have ultimately given rise to what we’re seeing today. As I say whether the BBC’s to blame for actually creating the Woke culture or whether they’re just mirroring a change in public attitude is debatable but

  10. Well of course there needs to be a couple of minutes between programs to put the kettle on or take a leak so it’s only natural for them to “advertise” future shows. At least they don’t do that every ten minutes or so like the commercial stations. I suppose as you say it’s our choice. We have normal Freeview, Netflix and Amazon all of which we get for free by using my son’s account. We watch the occasional film online, but I certainly wouldn’t pay for them. I’ve also got Virgin, but I’ve never even bothered plugging their box in as it doesn’t give me much more than Freeview and two handset

  12. Not history but if you watch this clip Local elections: What would England's teens vote for if they could? - BBC News you will see the BBC propagandising for all teir favourite projects and also see why the easily influenced 16 year olds should definitely not have the vote.

  13. I don't actually consider the licence fee to be extortionate for a service that provides some of the best programmes around . Most of the tv we watch comes from BBC & ITV & the occasional netflix or prime programme or film . People are paying hundreds of pounds a month for channels showing rehashed films & 2nd rate tv progs so why should i complain about the tv licence ?

  14. Latch, I wish you had panned a little right with the photo, you would have seen me waiting for my date in front of Boots, probably been stood up again. That’s an interesting question, how long would you wait before deciding she was a no show ?

  15. Seems a bit odd to be made to travel that distance but local border lines always seemed to be more important than physical distance back then and still are for all I know. I recall one of my friends being sent to Richard Fairclough despite his house on Hallfields Road almost backing onto Orford Secondary School. Ah well at least it prepared us for a life of accepting rules and regulations that don’t always make any sense. Bill 😊

  16. Well Latchy, the way I see it is that places that only attract a small percentage of people from a local area but are in sufficient demand overall should be centrally located. Just think back a while when the only cinema was at Westbrook or the ten-pin bowling on Winwick Road. Ok if you lived out that way but a real bugger to get to from the other side of town if you’re using public transport. Things like that should be in the town centre for the convenience of the public. We shouldn’t really need public toilets Obs if we have sufficient buildings with public access but that only works if

  17. I heard they’re going to be using one of the closed off stores in Golden Square as a temporary location for the library and museum while the buildings are being refurbished. Maybe something like this could be made into a permanent feature. I'd bet it’ll attract more people than at their current out of the way location. Bill 😊

  18. For several years now i have had the "flu jab". It does not stop me from catching the flu but it does lessen the effects of it making it less debilitating than would otherwise be. The covid vaccination acts in the same way, it will not stop you catching the virus but it will,hopefully, lessen any harmful effects it may have on your body. So full vaccination does not give immunity and you can still catch and spread the virus. the wearing of masks is not just to protect you from the virus but to protect others from you possibly passing the virus on to them as well. The saying is c

  21. I chucked a fiver in this morning on behalf of the whole of civilized society and it made me feel a lot better for doing it. Could just as easily have been any one of us here and it could have gone very wrong in a big way, thank God it didn’t. Reports say Bridgeman handed himself in, no doubt because he knew he’d be found out and thought this would help with any sentencing. He needs to be made an example of to dissuade others from attempting stupid stunts like this. Bill 😊

  22. Yes thank goodness he's been caught plus name and address even given; great result.!! Now lets throw the book at him; which I suspect this time they will , there is no room in civilised society for this behaviour.

  24. Easier said than done. The HR lawyers are making a nice living out of these kind of cases and any attempt to curtail their activities are likely to prolong the process rather than streamline it. Unless you make it illegal to be a lawyer and lock them all up 🤣.
