  1. All the top posts about the Leeds unrest are from right wing shitbags, literally the top three were from Tommy Robinson. Worrying stuff from this toilet.
  2. There's a wonderful true story about Roger Moore meeting a young fan in Nice airport in 1983. Mark Haynes was seven years old when he recognized Moore as James Bond while travelling with his grandfather and asked if it was okay to get an autograph. "As charming as you'd expect, Roger asks my name and duly signs the back of my plane ticket, a fulsome note full of best wishes," remembers Mark. "I'm ecstatic, but as we head back to our seats, I glance down at the signature. It's hard to decipher it but it definitely doesn't say 'James Bond'. My grandad looks at it, half figures out it says 'Roger Moore' - I have absolutely no idea who that is, and my hearts sinks. "I tell my grandad he's signed it wrong, that he's put someone else's name - so my grandad heads back to Roger Moore, holding the ticket which he's only just signed. "I remember staying by our seats and my grandad saying: 'he says you've signed the wrong name. He says your name is James Bond.' Roger Moore's face crinkled up with realisation and he beckoned me over. When I was by his knee, he leant over, looked from side to side, raised an eyebrow and in a hushed voice said to me, 'I have to sign my name as 'Roger Moore' because otherwise...Blofeld might find out I was here.' "He asked me not to tell anyone that I'd just seen James Bond, and he thanked me for keeping his secret. I went back to our seats, my nerves absolutely jangling with delight. My grandad asked me if he'd signed 'James Bond.' No, I said. I'd got it wrong. I was working with James Bond now." The story doesn't end there. It gets even better. Years later, as a scriptwriter, Mark had the opportunity to work with Moore again. "I was working as a scriptwriter on a recording that involved UNICEF, and Roger Moore was doing a piece to camera as an ambassador. He was completely lovely and while the cameramen were setting up, I told him in passing the story of when I met him in Nice Airport. He was happy to hear it, and he had a chuckle and said: 'Well, I don't remember but I'm glad you got to meet James Bond.' So that was lovely. "And then he did something so brilliant. After the filming, he walked past me in the corridor, heading out to his car - but as he got level, he paused, looked both ways, raised an eyebrow and in a hushed voice said, 'Of course I remember our meeting in Nice. But I didn't say anything in there, because those cameramen - any one of them could be working for Blofeld.' "I was as delighted at 30 as I had been at 7. What a man. What a tremendous man."
  3. Shit like this doesn't work on the British, we're like naughty schoolkids, the more you tell us not to do something the more we're likely to do it, the best way to stop us doing something is to tell us to do it. "No way I'm locking down." "Don't then." French and Italians lock down. "So are you gonna fucking locks us down then or what?" "Hmmm dunno, there's the economy and stuff." "Fuck the economy! Lock us the fuck down!"
  4. I've been twice in the summer to Oslo and both times it was hotter than a motherfuck.
  5. Burglars getting killed on the job is one of life's pleasures. I remember reading a story years ago when the then Labour government changed the law to make it easier for someone to defend themselves in their homes from intruders. One real world example of what wasn't allowed, was this bloke who'd captured two burglars in his house, tied them up and set them on fire.
  6. Climate change is like Covid. On the one hand you've got Oxbridge boffins telling you it's a thing, on the other you've got Farage and the B&M security guard telling you it's not. And they turn out to be wrong.
  7. I'm not sure Red Phoenix's concern is coming from a genuine place, given that he never displays similar outrage when Russian journalists fall out of windows.
  8. The suffragettes were just one of many women's vote campaign groups, but they were the only one which was violent.
  9. If my grandmother had wheels she'd be a wagon.
  10. Don't see how they're gonna drag this out for another season. I still liked this season but not as much as previous ones.
  11. The family will probably still lick his balls though.
  12. Card payments down in Morrisons NATIONWIDE.
  13. We have Bill Clinton to thank for both her and Dua Lipa. It's almost like he knew.
  14. Get Sharpe down there with his chosen men.
  15. I don't even reckon he's got the vid, why would he go back to Delaware for that? I reckon he's just said fuck y'all.
  16. Pelosi saying he's close to dropping out. I'm not a betting man but 17/1 newsome has got to be worth a tenner.
  17. If we're going Canadian then it's Shatner with Brett Hart as VP.
  18. Clooney surely. With Matt Damon as VP.
  19. I actually think he was the right person last time, had friends on both sides of the aisle, familiar face, steady the ship, but not this time.
  20. Obama saying he should pack in now. Tiger, tiger, tiger uppercut.
