    Donald Trump

    Terrifying read this, absolutely terrifying. https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/fintan-o-toole-trial-runs-for-fascism-are-in-full-flow-1.3543375

    Boris Johnson

    With my head still spinning from the fact someone had been jailed for three months for posting nasty comments on Facebook and no news organisations seemed arsed, I turned on the telly to see that at some point over the last few months - without me realising it - Boris Johnson has turned into the English JFK. Yesterday I heard him described as 'blue Viagra', 'a future Prime Minister' and 'a political rock star'. Heard how journalists love him because he 'remembers their names', 'tells jokes' and 'is a character'. It seems obvious they're maneuvering to get him to replace Cameron for the simple reason that he'd make good news stories owing to the fact he's an utter, utter buffoon. I just couldn't handle the shit yesterday. I felt like I'd climbed out of a car wreck and then been hit by a bus. What's going on in this country, seriously? A year from now Mitt Romney and Boris Johnson could be leaders of the western world, the dole might not exist, and people will be getting sent down for making inappropriate jokes about those facts on Twitter.

    Idiots in good jobs

    How often do you see this? You grow up assuming people in top jobs must have something about them, then when you actually start working you realise how untrue it is. I honestly don't know how a lot of people climb the ranks the way they do. Is it bluster? How you market yourself or what? I've always aimed for the middle, shamelessly so, I kind of like to just keep my head down. If a C was enough to get me onto a college course I'd aim for a C. But then you just marvel at the fact the people calling the shots can be so bad at things. I deal with a woman for some work at the moment, she's the head of global coms for a huge international firm and the briefs (Matron) she sends me are barely literate. I didn't know who she was at first (she'd put herself down as an interview contact on the brief, which in itself made no sense as she'd written it), so when I emailed her I had to try and paraphrase the instructions to her and very nearly said 'sorry about this, these briefs are shite'. Thankfully I didn't as she then replied saying 'thanks I've already got this I wrote it'. She always signs her emails off with emojis too and says 'K' instead of okay. Amazing.

    One change you'd make to improve town

    I'd outright ban all so-called 'street entertainment' too, if I never see another shit gospel choir made up of white fatties again it'll be too soon, or the plethora of shite wannabe musicians MCartneys scam factory LIPA has unleashed upon us, like the Ghostbusters containment unit when it gets switched off, except instead of ghosts its teenage girls with guitars who sound like a cat trying to get out of a slippery skip.

    One change you'd make to improve town

    This is a massive problem. There is no incubation space, no tech space etc beyond the Baltic triangle which basically consists of two hipsters sat in camp and Furness all day trying to dream up ways of getting a job at Facebook. The council's only business plan appears to be based on the student pound and lately apart hotels to attach the stag and hen crowd. It's a short term, low spending, often rowdy night time economy propped up by a few remnants of public sector companies. Manchester must thank its lucky starts every day that we've got nobody at the helm with any business or development vision.

    Donald Trump

    Some yank should be doing it, lazy bastards, Oprah Winfrey or something.

    Donald Trump

    why is there no movement to boycott companies that advertise with Fox News and sponsor Republican senators? Let's see Trump's hillbilly 'base' fork out for those expensive consumer products that keeps all these cunts in a job.

    The Athletic

    Great news this, it shows that people are slowly but surely realising that clickbait isn't the way to make journalism pay, and that hopefully we'll get back to seeing in-depth, quality articles on all subjects. Here's hoping.

    The Local News Thread

    The Echo is currently live blogging about the temporary closure of Mcdonalds in town with a 'what we know so far' section. It really is garbage, anti-journalism.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Apparently the Tories are pushing for an early election as soon as Spetember as they feel Corbyn is beatable. Let that sink in. If Corbyn stays KNOWING he can't win then it's a gross betrayal of the very people he says he cares about.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    The party is utterly fucked at the moment. The idea of having a deputy leader and a leader who are independently elected is fucking barmy. It's internal structures have been eroded to the point a lot of CLPs are beset by infighting fuelled often by personal agendas. I think Corbyn thought he was somehow giving the party back to the people, but it's been given over largely to bullies in many cases and people looking to settle scores. It simply cannot win an election in its current state IMO.

    He's David Moyes with a comb over.

    Small pleasures?

    (1) ASDA prawn crackers, a finer example of oriental foodstuff is not to be found this side of Macau. Fact.

    The Shield

    What a piece of television! Just borrowed season two and three and steamed through season two in two nights, just on season three now. Its flawless!
  15. Section_31

    The Shield

    Ironically though due to Sean Ryan's penchant for nepotism The Shield also has comfortably some of the worst actors I've ever seen on the small screen. Corine (his bird) Ronny (his mate) Cassidy (Chiklis's daughter). Emolia (don't know but shocking).

    Annoying Americanisms

    The way they say sports instead of sport. "Hey do you like sports?" Macaroni AND cheese instead of Macaroni Cheese. There's just no need for that extra word, no need at all.

    Instant cunt identifiers

    Anyone who makes reference to the fact a work experience kid or new starter has 'no common sense'. Usually Akin to Bella Emberg telling Erika Eleniak her feet are too small.

    Idiots in good jobs

    Is there a bigger example of this than academia? Quite a few of our lecturers were drunken wrecks who'd worked in industry briefly and then found a cushy number teaching. Most of them are still there and still have a shit rep. It's amazing. When you go through a few lecturers' backgrounds on linkedin it's pretty mindblowing. You'd expect them to have done some pretty impressive stuff but quite often they haven't.

    These "Involuntary Celibacy" Incels

    The Shield

    Yeah there's some boss tunes on it. It's got the honour of having the only good Coldplay song on it, Kingdom Come, when Lem gets arrested. Full list here. https://www.tunefind.com/show/the-shield

    Donald Trump

    Can see One of them getting killed to be honest, then a riot starting outside one of his hotels and not stopping.

    The Shield

    Have loved watching this again on 4OD (yep agree about the awful adverts though!) I'd forgotten just how good it is. A lot of its best bits are subtle, the looks, the glances, the camerawork. For example, I didn't realise until repeated viewing that Vic is sort of responsible for Aceveda's rape because he sticks that bong down the fella's throat. It's never explicitly stated like it would be in a lesser show. Also, Mara, what a twat. Wonderfully written and acted shitbag.

    Best James Bond?

    It should be the wee man from Bodyguard, Robb Stark. He should keep his Scottish accent too.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Top stories on the news. Trump in racism outrage but Tory leadership candidates refuse to brand him racist. Corbyn tries to hide behind a pillar from news cameras. Honest.

    Best James Bond?

    When I go to certain European cities with weird sirens I like to pretend I'm jason bourne. If I hear one I'll turn into an alley quickly and put my finger in my ear.
