    The Twitter

    As if I’d signpost the forum degenerates to my poor unsuspecting elderly mother. To be fair, I’d probably be more concerned about you lot, than her! If you’re a lefty on Twitter there’s a good chance you’re already following her.

    General Election 2019

    He was before were together, but took a huge cut to come to run a small company which was where we met. Are you stalking me, by the way? Can you tell me what time my optician’s appointment is today because I’ve forgotten, cheers. I do donate to Labour. I literally set up a homeless charity in my town a few years ago, and ran it till 12 months ago. Technically it’s a C.I.C, not a charity, but it’s by the by. We fed the local homeless population every night. And before you make a snide comment, no I wasn’t paid, I did it entirely in a voluntary capacity. I also spent thousands of pounds on food/equipment, but I’m sure you know that already.

    You think women can’t pay half the mortgage? You are definitely a misogynist.

    General Election 2019

    Very amusing. Just for the record, my ‘rich bloke’ wasn’t rich when we got together. For the first two years of our relationship I paid to keep him. We started a business and grew it together. But you carry on being a misogynist as well as a selfish cunt.

    General Election 2019

    We’re currently trying to flog our business and Labour’s proposed abolition of entrepreneurs’ relief means we’ll pay 50% tax on the sale price instead of the current 10%. That’s an obscene amount of money, but I would still give my right arm to have Jeremy Corbyn as PM. There is literally nothing that money could buy that I would want more than a Labour victory.

    Either that or a Wilf Lunn lookalike contest.

    Was in a hotel last week and there was a wedding on. I thought I’d stumbled onto the set of a period drama. Half the blokes were dressed in the most ridiculous clobber. I’m not just talking about a Peaky Blinders Cockbonnet; this was full on tweed suits tucked into socks, pocket watches, the full monty. What a shower of beauts.

    What's your favourite Roast Dinner condiment?

    I’ve been trying to find a quiet corner of the internet where I can argue about something other than politics. There was only ever going to be one place I ended up. Redcurrant jelly, my arse. The gf has gone to the dogs in my absence.

    It does have to be very succulent young lamb, so I probably am a bit of a meat paedo.

    What the hell is Redcurrant Jelly? It sounds like something they’d have put on roast swan in the 1600s. I’m a traditionalist - apple sauce with pork, mint sauce with lamb, horseradish with beef, bread sauce with nothing, ever.

    The Twitter

    My old Mum is so technophobic that she asks me to go round to hers to change the channel on her ‘wireless’. We bought her a tablet a couple of years ago in an attempt to drag her into the modern age. She asked me to make her an account on Twitter so she could read people’s views. A few months later she proudly informed me that she’d taught herself how to retweet and like tweets. Not long after, I showed her how to send her own tweets, reply and quote tweets. I rarely go on Twitter these days, but because the auld gerl refuses to use a smartphone, if I have to send her pictures I DM them to her on Twitter (she struggles with email still). Imagine my shock to see she has amassed almost 7,000 followers. I’ve been on Twitter for a decade, and I’ve got a handful of people and a cat following me yet my mother who can happily bang on for four straight hours about her bunions is taking over the internet. My head is fried!

    any financial/mortgage advisers on here?

    Be careful of making such a huge life-changing decision based on a school’s rating. A school can go from ‘Outstanding’ to requiring improvement within a really short space of time, whenever Ofsted change their inspection framework. It’s best to visit the local schools and get a feel for the ones you like, rather than just accept that a school is better just because it’s got a robust anti-radicalisation policy or some other such nonsense measure.

    Do you like Christmas?

    Bubble and squeak, now you’re talking my language. It’s too often overlooked in these northern parts. I thank my 50% cockney genes for my love of fried mash and cabbage. Can I add, in my defence, I wouldn’t even expect the buggers to cook the whole dinner. I’d be happy if they offered to peel a bag of spuds and make breakfast.

    Do you like Christmas?

    For the first year ever, I’m going on strike on Christmas Day. Every year I spend the whole week before organising, shopping and stressing. Christmas Eve is like a mad mash of Masterchef and DIY SOS, peeling veg and preparing stuff. I’m already knackered by the time I drag myself out of bed on Christmas Day to open presents (briefly) then it’s straight into the kitchen to make a full English for my enormous tribe. If I’m lucky I’ll find ten minutes to jump in the shower and throw some clothes on before I immediately get the Christmas lunch on. I’ll cook it single handedly, usually for 10-12 people, then sit down to eat with them. They’ll all look glam as fuck, while I’m a frazzled, sweating mess with hair like Boris Johnson and no make-up on. And so it continues for the rest of the day... So this year I’ve told them there’s going to be no Christmas lunch. I’m going to relax and sit down, eat chocolate, drink and watch shit telly. I’ll do a buffet of ready-prepared stuff, but there’ll be no cooking. My husband is completely supportive and thinks it’s a great idea. The kids on the other hand are organising management talks with the unions. No words can describe their horror and disgust. I don’t give a shit; the bloody lazy, expectant, millennial bastards.

    Missing (posters) in Action

    How are you doing? I still lurk from time to time, but I’ve impressed myself today with my ability to remember my password. Obviously not quite as demented as I’d feared!
