Nish Kumar

While I think it disgraceful behaviour to throw stuff at him, I can fully understand why.

Stand up comedians are meant to be funny, but all he does is shout in a very obvious ranty lefty way. It might get a laugh in the Student Union bar, but I really don't see what the BBC see to justify giving him any air time.

It's not the politics that worry me (I think Ben Elton used to be hilarious), but just the complete and total absence of humour or subtlety. Rubbish material delivered badly.

We have similar very angry "comedians" here too.

One person (forget her name) was allowed to go on stage/set and let off the most vicious anti-everything rant (but especially against white men) then pretend to defecate on our flag. All paid for by us out of the billion dollar budget as it was an ABC (=BBC) production. Might still be on their website?

Unfortunately we can't change history and I do realise some people carry a lot of justifiable emotional baggage but to express that under the guise of comedy is a bit of a stretch for me.

....... why qualify it? .......

Comedians.  

Comedians get on my wick - period.

I love funny people, I like people with a sense of humour, I delight in quick wits and cynical sarcasmists (my word.  Use it and I'll demand royalties!!).... I love movies with great scripts that wisecrack and give characters some lovely lines.

...and none of it needs professional comedians spouting rehearsed crap on a stage for two hours.  Here's my concept of true 'Alternative' - just bury stand up comedy in a deep hole,  never to be unearthed again.  Just claim it's a threat to the climate. Cool

Anyway, back to serious matters.

David Attenborough.

Yep, the time has come.  Even Saints have to be brought down to size on this particular thread.

I grew up with this man.... and remember him from shows before the runaway monster that has become his Planet documentary series after series after series...

....but I could still handle him if he didn't allow himself to become such a pastiche of his many imitators over the decades.  The voice now whines with ultra-delay emotion on the end of worddddddddddsssssss whispered out in that breathy tone of pain for the planet that he must have walked, flown, sailed and driven over every inch of by now.

I can hear the director every time "Right Sir David, we're coming to a SaveDaPlanet Emoto Section next so..... well, you know, give it lots of melancholy and pain.  Sell it, Baby!".

Enough!

Wholeheartedly agree with this one.  When I watch a wildlife documentary all I want to see is animals killing other animals, we've got Greta Thunberg to continually remind us what c*nts we all are.

If it's annual destruction it's Wales, if it's daily destruction I think a football field is the unit used.

If a 110m x 75m wide football field is approximately 0.82 hectares (2.02 acres), then Wales (20,735 sq km or 2,073,500 ha) is 2,528,628 football fields in size.

The fires here have burned around 5 million ha (12,355,000 acres) or 6,097,560 football fields which is approximately 2.4 times the size of Wales.

I didn’t give any particular reasons for disliking the movies though, unless you read something I didn’t. I also said I couldn’t resonate with the new characters, a bit like kids still prefer to buy toys of the original characters rather than the new ones - racist and homophobic kids eh! You were desperately looking for offence when there was none to be taken, kinda lame.

Of course there's minimal risk of that - never dry enough for long enough...

Back to gear grinders:
'Worthy' months like Dry January or Veganuary., and particularly the pushing of these lifestyle choices by certain parts of the media. Either choose to be vegan or not / tea-total or not, but don't do it in a half-a**ed way for a month.

BBC website has an article '8 tips for surviving Veganuary'. Easy first tip - if you are thinking about it in terms of surviving, don't bother in the first place.

It's really excellent that January is the month they have picked for the vegan craze. Possibly the worst month of the year for having to fly vegan food in from abroad, rather than being able to produce it here. Superb!

Even then, you need to be doing an extraordinary amount of exercise for them to be more useful than a normal, balanced diet. I'd wager that 95% of protein shakes end up as nothing more than expensive urine.

Don't be giving them ideas!  Reconstituted Super Concentrated Urine Protein Drinks might become all the rage with the Always-On jet-set greenomics 'Influencers'......, if not already a delicacy in those circles, which on further reflection I think it is.  Waste not, want not.

Always out of condition types jealously sniping about People who take pride in looking good..

I'm 50 this year but I still keep my protein sachets and bars in the cupboards in the Kitchen at work and religiously bring my little electric whisk so I can blend my shake in front of the pompous little morons half my age with Sauvignon and Burgundy gut..

Never be ashamed of looking good.

You seem to have missed the point on this one, Trussy.

These people tend not to be in shape and think that protein shakes are a magic wand...

I suspect that the moment no one can see them, they will be straight into Gregg's

Being 'in shape' and looking good aren't necessarily the same thing - it's a matter of taste.

Personally I'm glad not everyone's a gym bunny.

If you did see the point, you certainly didn't acknowledge it Doh

Nobody is saying that staying in shape and "looking good" is bad. But protein shakes are, in 95% of cases completely pointless.

A few days late, but:

Mike Pence and Benjamin Netanyahu.

Picture the scene. Present at a memorial to the worst human atrocity of recent history, where ~6 million Jews were exterminated and what do you do? Spout off on some mealy-mouthed political nonsense criticising Iran because of recent events that you, Mike Pence, are (at least partly) directly responsible for. You pathetic, disrespectful, disgraceful morons.

Now, the Iranian regime aren't saints, but:

  1. CIA/MI6 depose Mossadegh when he has temerity to think Iran should actually, you know, own its own natural resources; leading to...
  2. ...installation of the Shah; leading to...
  3. ...the Islamic Republic; leading to...
  4. ...the Iran hostage crisis; leading to...
  5. ...the Iran-Iraq War (w/ able funding of Saddam Hussein by 'the West'); leading to...
  6. ...Iran attempting to acquire a nuclear weapon; leading to...
  7. ...Trump unilaterally pulling out of the recent multilateral agreement to stop Iran acquiring said weapon; leading to...
  8. ...increasing US sanctions on Iran's oil/trade; leading to...
  9. ...Iran getting p!ssed off and flexing some regional muscles; leading to...
  10. ...the murder of Soleimani by the Trump administration; leading to...
  11. ...the shooting down of the civilian airliner; leading to...
  12. ...Trump, Pence, Netanyahu, Johnson, Raab etc agreeing it's all Iran's fault.


Scary how history is being (re)written.

Have a feeling if the civilian airliner wasn't an accident it may have more to do with retaliation not just for Soleimani but for Iran air flight 655 which was brought down for no good reason 30 years ago and is still sore in Iran today..

But yes when life is tough at home and an Election is imminent best to look strong by bombing some Country the People hate....

If Iraq had been a year later Clinton would have lost to Bush sr....The second Iraq war got Junior re-elected....

Been plenty of Generals that have been Presidents.....Zach Taylor...Frankie Pierce...Eisenhower....Grant..Hayes...Jackson plus many others including Washington himself...Plenty of Majors too like the thug Millard Fillmore..

Patriotism sells..

But yes when life is tough at home and an Election is imminent best to look strong by bombing some Country the People hate....

If Iraq had been a year later Clinton would have lost to Bush sr....The second Iraq war got Junior re-elected....

Been plenty of Generals that have been Presidents.....Zach Taylor...Frankie Pierce...Eisenhower....Grant..Hayes...Jackson plus many others including Washington himself...Plenty of Majors too like the thug Millard Fillmore..

Patriotism sells..

Ah yes, forgot about the Vincennes' fabulous action in my earlier post. Perhaps that was Iran's fault as well?

The fires here have burned around 5 million ha (12,355,000 acres) or 6,097,560 football fields which is approximately 2.4 times the size of Wales.

I'd be fine with Wales being destroyed by fire.  


I'm not! Cos then all the blighters would come over this side of Offa's Dyke, with their weird vowel-less language and start interfering with our livestock. Whistle




If any Welsh people read this...I'm just kidding!

Picture the scene. Present at a memorial to the worst human atrocity of recent history, where ~6 million Jews were exterminated and what do you do? Spout off on some mealy-mouthed political nonsense criticising Iran because of recent events that you, Mike Pence, are (at least partly) directly responsible for. You pathetic, disrespectful, disgraceful morons.

Now, the Iranian regime aren't saints, but:

  1. CIA/MI6 depose Mossadegh when he has temerity to think Iran should actually, you know, own its own natural resources; leading to...
  2. ...installation of the Shah; leading to...
  3. ...the Islamic Republic; leading to...
  4. ...the Iran hostage crisis; leading to...
  5. ...the Iran-Iraq War (w/ able funding of Saddam Hussein by 'the West'); leading to...
  6. ...Iran attempting to acquire a nuclear weapon; leading to...
  7. ...Trump unilaterally pulling out of the recent multilateral agreement to stop Iran acquiring said weapon; leading to...
  8. ...increasing US sanctions on Iran's oil/trade; leading to...
  9. ...Iran getting p!ssed off and flexing some regional muscles; leading to...
  10. ...the murder of Soleimani by the Trump administration; leading to...
  11. ...the shooting down of the civilian airliner; leading to...
  12. ...Trump, Pence, Netanyahu, Johnson, Raab etc agreeing it's all Iran's fault.


Scary how history is being (re)written.


Well its not exactly a new phenomenon. Its been going on since Shakespeare's day, with his portrayal of Richard III...if not longer.

History is written by the winners / people in power. When those people are egotistical megalomaniacs, this is what you get. When people can't see beyond their own prejudices and refuse to admit any wrongdoing on their part, there can never be peace.

Mike Pompeo.

Asking a European History Masters graduate to point out Ukraine on a map, as if she's as stupid as him and his boss and then lying about it.

Extinction Rebellion

Firstly, they are wrong on the science - no mainstream scientist or the IPCC claim that climate change is an existential threat, even at the more extreme end of the climate scenarios (although these would undoubtedly be very harmful). ER, and Greta, are off the deep end here

Secondly, their actions are self-defeating. They come across as zealots and anarchists rather than people with a noble cause

The thousands of drivers who contributed to and ****ed up my 5 hour plus drive back from Devon last Friday and caused a queue by rubber necking the fields where the M5 crosses the Avon river near Tewkesbury.

FFS! A ~10 mile stop/start queue because thousands of A-holes haven't seen water before??? It's a flood plain you cretins, and it's been raining a lot. Give me strength.

You need a break, mate. WTF are you on about? What has 'oppression' got to do w/ rubber necking flood waters and holding up traffic on a UK motorway? Think you've lost the plot OK.

The World Health Organisation. I certainly won't be shaking their hands. Very poor answers to important questions thus far.
