    ADVERTS ...... most of them, but the one in particular that * me off right now . We buy any car . Philip schoffield playing with his cute puppy .
    He tells us we could get a few more quid selling privately , but it's more important to spend time with the cute puppy .
    It probably is if you earn millions every year Philip . But the rest of us need to get as much as we can .... *

    I'm not picky.
    No idea. I've not been back home for a few years now so dunno if it's said there or not. It's a relatively new saying I've heard here I think, but does my nut in when I hear it being said. Daft non-word.

    While I'm on the topic of words, another thing I hate is when words that mean something bad or horrible now mean something good.

    "That's sick/filthy/disgusting!"

    Heard the filthy one on baseball a few times last year by commentators. How the * can a great play be filthy/disgusting? Next we'll have something like "He's absolutely hammered that out the park! That's a disgustingly grotesque hit!!"

    Leave words to their original meanings, dammit.

    Wasting 5 days of my holiday in patong.. Well and truly the shittest place in Thailand by a country mile and I thought Pattaya was bad for Russians and Arabs .

    Everycunt just stares at you as though they are looking for a fight lol

    Should have taken my mates advice when he said it's the benidorm of Thailand.

    Also having to pay £3.80 for a bottle of Thai brand beer in Thailand is basically rape.

    Every time you used to see that while on holiday in Europe it was guaranteed to be a German.

    General Election called for the 8th of February.

    After everything, no matter what,

    Fianna Fail or Fine Gael will still get in like always.

    Hereditary voting.

    Sinn Fein should be the major players.They'll hopefully make gains but people are so set in their ways it's hard to be optimistic.It's the exact same in Scotland - people will often just vote for whoever their parents did - even if it's obviously not in their best interests.

    They're more or less guaranteed to lose seats..
    Last May, they lost half their councillors in the South, 2 out of 3 of their MEP's, vote declined from 15% to 9%..

    Recent election here in the North, their vote declined by 7%.. which spooked them enough to go back into government.

    I can definetly see them making voting gains but as you say it wont be enough.

    Worst homeless & health crisis ever.

    Multiple gang wars, 17 year olds chopped up body was only found 2 days ago.

    Trying to fondly remember the RIC.

    The election is unusual as its on a Saturday, turnout was very low on the local elections recently.

    Hopefully being on a weekend will give people less of an excuse to not vote.
