They have to it or they would be branded racist by some jumped up government minister who is more interested in statistics than how it actually impacts people on the real world.

How half those people get through interviews us beyond me.

You've pretty much hit the nail on the head. Would love a flamethrower & chainsaw & half an hour with the pc brigade for Xmas.

Haha there was a guy at Finsbury Park station last night who made a long (1-2 min) announcement in an absolutely incomprehensible sub-continental Asian accent. So absurd I could only giggle to myself about it.

There is a funny guy who sometimes does the announcements at Victoria in a great West indian accent. Doesn't grind my gears, in fact it makes me smile!

So to counter that good feeling. Why do people honk their horns in traffic jams? You can't move!

Without sounding all Nick Griffin like these people really shouldn't be allowed in the country under normal circumstances unless they can hold a conversation at a standard level.

Our immigration policy is an ass anyway so until that changes these things will happen.

Because they are idiots?

Also, why do cars think it is acceptable to park in cycle lanes. Had some fella shout out his window last night that I was a bike and I should get off the road as I have no right being there.

Gangnam Style. Was mildly amusing about a year ago when it came out but since then has been overplayed and now BBC News seem to have picked up on it with a non-story almost every day about someone doing the dances. Hilarious. Not

But worst of all: the managers "hilariously" dancing it at our Christmas Do. They thought it was so funny they emailed everyone who was lucky enough not to see it about it. Sadly what most people think is it was a vomit-inducing attempt by people who are normally total @rses to show how in touch they are.

I thought I saw that in a shop the other day, but I had a closer look at the dates and they were still clearly trying to sell this year's Easter eggs - at full price as well!

When you pull in to allow a car to come through, and they don't acknowledge you've gone out of your way to give them the space to come through. All you want is the little hand salute to say thank you and its fine, but when people just drive on past and don't even look at you furious

I hate that. I should really make a note of their number plate and not let them through the next time.

Some drivers are like that, though. We all share the roads, but these t0ssers don't care about anyone but themselves.

I've never had that, but quite a few times I'm almost at the end of a long post and something happens and I go back to the forum and there's no sign of my message. It's annoying as hell!

Speaking of annoying: Brian Blessed. He and his stupid voice are on telly far too often for my liking. Have you ever seen him interviewed? He's an ass.

He is a bit of a t1t, has made the odd episode of HIGNFY & QI unwatchable. I get really sick of loud & unfunny actors we're supposed to regard as delightfully eccentric & even more sick of their stupid anecdotes & anecdotes about them. I like Stephen Fry but he's one of the worst culprits with dull stories about actors' quotes & stage jinks.

With google chrome, if you just press back it has usually kept your message in tact. I know in Internet Explorer it's lost.

What's worst about Brian Blessed is that he's being indulged. He's been on a few programmes with Stephen Fry and he laughs like a drain at everything Brian Blessed does. Someone needs to tell him to shut up!

Oh, I also can't stand Phill Jupitus. I haven't watched Never Mind the Buzzcocks for years, but when Mark Lamarr used to host it, Phill Jupitus was such a kiss-arse it was embarassing.

@ Crimey - cheers

@ LP - Phil Jupitus does make the odd funny comment but unfortunately his greatest fan is himself. The episode of QI with the applause-meter was classic when everyone except him managed to get it through the roof, his desperation was pitiful.

Hangovers....

I know the obvious answer is to not have 12 pints, but what else am I meant to do on a Thursday Xmas night out.

The thing about hangovers is that you feel so bad that you tell yourself, 'never again' but it's not long before you're in the same situation again!

I swear by Lucozade. Lucozade and corn-based crisps.

Or, after a big night, just before you go to sleep, drink a big glass of water. It usually helps.

Professional Football Players who flaunt their wealth by buying tasteless junk. And then hurl abuse at us "mere mortals". Thingies.

I heard a story that there was a local footballer in a nightclub queue and he wasn't being let in before everyone and he spent his time in said queue burning £50 notes in front of the general public. What a collossal ladypart.

I always have a pint of water or 2 before bed after a night out. Apparantly the worst thing you can do is eat after a night out, as it takes longer then for the alcohol to leave your body or something like that. I ignore it though because a chicken shish kebab with chilli and garlic sauce or a beef curry half and half from the Chinese is just too good to turn down when your drunk. I don't get hangovers if i have water so i tend to feel fine in the morning.

Did you see Phil's stand-up on Live at the Apollo a couple of week's ago on telly? He is just...well...odd. But not so much in a clever way. He just told this one elongated gag about his daughter bringing her boyfriend round to stay the night. The "gag" went on for ages, and the way he delivered it wasn't funny as he was telling the story. So he finally gets to the punchline, says it and walks off. Very odd. i think he'd be a better comedy writer than a stand-up.

Speaking of annoying comedians - Sarah Millican. Just not funny. Or maybe I don't get it...

Agree, she isn't funny at all. All the she talks about is her failed love life... Well if you look like that it hardly likely to be fantastic is it. Who'd bother putting in a shift when that is the reward.

I agree, maybe its because she's the only mainstream female comedian out there and get's pushed quite allot by the BBC.

Still, don't find her funny in the slightest and without being too harsh I don't think he voice helps her cause either.

I've gotten into the habit of highlighting and copying posts before I send them, just in case this happens. If it does, you can then just paste it in again.

Anyway, my local supermarket is stocking eggs and flour and it's still months before pancake day. Gets earlier every year I'm sure.

Best cure I've developed is lucozade (x2), a pot noodle and a long walk.

After a night out in the town I refuse to pay for a taxi, so I go to the 24hr garage, buy a pot noodle and 2 lucozade, I drink the first while walking the 3 miles back to my house, when I get home I drink the other and eat the pot noodle, I don't drink often so have only used this 4 times but it has a 100% sucess rate.

Dr Greg, that's a fail-safe recipe, although I'd have the two Lucozades the next morning, followed by a Pot Noodle (or more likely some crisps) and a good walk with the dog. I'd much rather write the day off and watch Attenborough programmes curled up on the sofa, but you can always watch them once you've got back from the walk.

What's annoying me at present is how shops are ever so keen to stick up their decorations and Christmas paraphenalia as soon as possible but the very moment Christmas Day has passed (and we actually enter the 12 days of Christmas) then it's all whipped down and any hint of festivity is removed.

I thought the Brian blessed HIGNFY episode was one the the funniest ever..

Hangover cures? 2x iprobrufen and a pint o water before bed and negative headache. Works every time for me thumbsup

What's irking me lately is rugby players nicknames given by fans. Eg..sexy toes,chilly,baby chilly, our Shane, 36. Erm

Following the F.A. Cup scores on the BBC, they keep using the word 'cupset'. Where has that come from? It's awful. Splicing two words together to make a new one doesn't always work.
