  1. What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    Other than the Billy Bob teeth,I didn't think he looked anything like Freddie. Came across as more like a young Jagger, if anything. Mercury was a pretty substantial unit, until he got ill obviously. The actors playing May and Taylor were much more convincing, imho. Still an enjoyable movie, despite some timeline issues - it's not supposed to be a documentary, after all.
  2. Things you want to share with P&B

    The more I hear about the save Banks made from Pele, the more I realise how few have seen the save Bobby Ferguson pulled off at Tynecastle in May 1965 - which actually contributed to a trophy being won.
  3. Not quite an unsung hero, but rarely puts in a substandard shift.
  4. Killie vs the new club

    That was quite simply a good football team beating a team who aren't as good. Proud of every player in blue and white - shows the true meaning of teamwork. What a time to be a Killie fan!
  5. The joke thread: a thread for camaraderie and hilarity

    I heard that. Apparently the funfair is on moon dial.
  6. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    The fact that the big moment is when they get the massive bolt-cutters out for the "reveal" when any competent facility owner would surely demand a spare key for the units, to allow easy access in the case of emergencies/police requests/sheer bloody nosiness*. All those padlocks fúcked for no good reason. *Or a quick check to make sure the contents will make good telly...
  7. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    One of the very few human beings I despise more than Branson. Sucked off the Government tit for years until one of his ideas (ball-barrow?) actually had a commercial return. Proceeded to the hoover market, with production costs lowered by using prison labour, then shifted production to the Fabled East where they care little for Unions, H&S, or living wages. An absolute cúnt of the highest order. No pain or suffering is too horrific to inflict on this shitstain.
  8. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    It looks like the patience I counselled over Corbyn's "vagueness" is finally bearing fruit. The Labour Party is still in the position where they can frame new proposals which, while they will inevitably piss off a proportion of members and indeed voters, can hardly fail to stack up well against May's dictatorial nonsense which, having ignored all and any advice for over two years, she now has no option but to proceed with. She wanted to own Brexit. Well fúcking let her.
  9. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I'll just add my tuppence worth here - a couple of years ago I was absolutely disgusted, but not a bit surprised, to find that the majority of NHS IT was still running under a version of Windows XP. The reason I was unsurprised was that I have become inured, over twenty-plus years working for the HO and, latterly, MoJ, that large Governmental and Public sector agencies are massive cash cows for the IT business. The MoJ had to pay Microsoft a 7 figure sum for bespoke support as they decided hang onto windows 7 well past the date when microsoft are dropping this service. Our systems at work still use IE8 as the default browser. As for hardware, well we rent(!) our equipment from a Private supplier. A 17" monitor costs us over £100 p.a. for the service contract and hire - a quick swatch at Amazon reveals a range of options (to actually own) from 18 to 22 inches at under £70, before we even think about bulk discounts. Considering the site where I work (a long way from the largest of the Queen's Hotel chain) has over three hundred screens, that is, as I believe the saying goes, a fúckload of public money being pissed up the wall.
  10. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I was watching it on the BBC when they cut him short, so switched over to SKY-only for them to do the same a couple of minutes later. Certainly looks as if a second referendum could be mooted by Labour if things don't go well in the next couple of days. I still think a GE is more likely, as the Maybot is terrified of being remembered as the one who broke the Tory party. Destroying the county, she's less bothered about.
  11. (Another) Ayrshire Derby - Auchinleck vs Ayr

    This has been the first chink of light in what has been an absolutely shite January. Well Done, Talbot! Oh, and fúck yer Ayr!
  12. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    He should represent those who elected him as an MP, on whichever manifesto he stood. Not on how they voted in a referendum which (pre-vote, at least) was not party political. Maybe, just maybe, there's still a few voters out there who care about the NHS, education, social care, and social security...
  13. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Absolutely. What should have been a summing up of reasons to vote against the notion turned into a mendacious ten minute ad hominem rant. Utter Scumbag. He and Sarah fucking Vine deserve each other.
  14. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Lammy was fully in support of the Iraq war. That's bad. He repeatedly (double figures) voted against an inquiry into said war. That will take more than a few crowd pleasing speeches to get my respect. He has said all the right things here,and in the aftermath of Grenfell for instance, but he was absolutely on-message with the previous regime. I'm not convinced.
  15. Rangers V The Champions.

    I'd prefer then both to lose, but if they can't drop three points, two each will have to do.
