  1. Tonight it's good to see Davis, Hazel, Parrot, Virgo, Hendry, Ding, Mark, and a full audience for the final. Some things haven't changed. Just thinking back to this thread and wondered who's watching? Yesterday I saw Peter Ebdon in the audience. So much respect for him these days.
  2. Yes, and it's when huge and encouraging things happen and they never see the light of the news. And you think this is a lesson in how things are really done. At least it helps in weighing up the truth in the long term. A stunt like this consoles people ... oh look someone is doing something. Someone is standing up for what's right. That'll show 'em. And that unfaithful cad. (The one who dared to kiss a woman) I'm old enough to remember when being married mattered. Remember the scandal of it all, and the resignations? I would love to see that banner AFS. We might have to rely on getting a grant, or a charity donation from the good old philanthropists, or a celebrity On a serious note, it sickened me to see the psychology of teaching the public to accept being locked up and told exactly what to do, and then to be outraged at others not doing it. Yesterday, because a lot more journalists and presenters are speaking with a different angle now, I heard a comment that we spent hours discussing if Johnson had a beer in his hand, or raised a glass. I think it was Times Radio. They said that journalists love the gossip and tittle tattle, so when there are hard, exhausting, frustrating and unsolvable problems (like drowning in Brexit negotiations), they jump on these other things for some light relief. They said their "editors wouldn't forgive them if they didn't follow the story." I know a lot of the public do the same, discussing politics and soap and reality tv, as if they are all the same thing. I've hated seeing politics merged into reality tv. It's another step towards to an idiotic future. I suppose it will be tv phone voting. We can vote for a 'leader' if we can afford the phone call.
  3. One thing i like about twitter is glancing at say, the latest propaganda, then reading some of the comments, and chancing upon a writer who has more about them than just twitter, with a good article to share. It feels a bit of a dirty way to go about it, granted, but still ...
  4. Saying he broke his own lockdown rules is such a pisstake, just like Johnson and parties. A well used distraction, to ensure that the real crimes are kept secret. Of course everyone knows about these two 'crimes', they roll off of everyone's tongue, they were handed to us on a media plate, and not hard won like the real accounts of the crimes that have taken place.
  5. Thanks Danny, that's really helpful, a good part of the puzzle. It annoys me that if we chipped in and paid for a banner for little Matty, it wouldn't be mentioned in the BBC, Mirror and Metro. This was more publicity for the show. The families are the appropriate / allowed / managed face of the public rage, as they say the elderly were sent into care homes without testing, and that side of the narative. This is one of the covid criticisms that surfaced very early in, and even back then it was clear that it would be milked to the end, as well as being part of the extortionate enquiry. Layers and layers of deceit. I expect the families will get compensation in a couple of decades. I naturally feel sorry for any bereaved families. We also lost someone, but I suspect that was probably more to do with the ventilator? I also believe he used a vape. His death was used to convince others that he had died of 'it' and 'it' was real. At the funeral I wanted to touch and console his masked mother, but the other siblings wouldn't allow it. Instead everyone there 'clapped' her. It was absolutely and totally despicable. Adding insult to injury. We also had to stand outside. It was just one of many occasions where I felt the older generation would have handled it differently if they had not been 'pushed' by the 'youngsters' who were trying to protect them at all costs. Inhumane. Unforgettable. Thanks also Danny for sharing a video of Ian R Crane. It's good to keep his memory alive.
  6. Yes, vile man. I hate the thought that these men have so much power, and that they want to openly own us, and save us from our financial dire straits with their self serving philanthropy. What'll it be? Amazon play park and Gates swimming pool?
  7. Sharing two financial tweets that I read that were linked to replies to Martin Lewis' 'loaded' question.
  8. I always keep in mind that part of the party gate saga is the plan to destroy any faith in decent backbenchers and the parliamentary process, in order to fast track the corporations / charities / philanthropists ... being openly in charge. Before the relentless 'austerity' post 2008 ... they used the expenses scandal to encourage resentment of the MP's, and to put them all in the same boat.
  9. That's a good example of how the crowds are made up, thanks Frankieboy I know one gent in his 80's, he's been saying for years how the news use the same footage over and over (stock images) and although he didn't know back then about green screen (I didn't know either of course) he said they're not really there ... look at their clothes ... or their hair ... or no wind, etc. They're in the studio. Just good old fashioned awareness common sence and observation. One of my stand out memories is of Obama's inauguration with so many waving flags going back into the distant horizon.
  10. They're the ones flying the banners over I expect or whoever else is behind any publicised protests?
  11. (The above refers to the meaning of the word zealot, where the dictionary mentions a fanatical partisan.) That's really interesting, thanks Campion. BTW I looked up dominate "early 17th century: from Latin dominat- ‘ruled, governed’, from the verb dominari, from dominus ‘lord, master’.
  12. I enjoy etymology, so I looked up Zealotry, even though I thought I knew what it meant Great word Bombadil. I haven't managed to put it into words yet! This is Hunt doing his Princess Diana impression and looking more like who or rather, what?
  13. This is an excellent and disturbing article. Sadly it's not a surprise for any of us who could see that the insane lockdown restrictions would be used as part of our training for the coming climate dictatorship. Now we are more out of practice in resisting, speaking up, and also connecting with those who know how to. JAMES WOUDHUYSEN 25th October 2022 Shared by Peter Ebdon, what a good man.
  14. Mike runs though the vaccine and after the quote above says "they're not normal people" He says a lot in 2 minutes.
  15. Baroness Grey Thompson said she had been told that "we would know women had made it in sport when men wanted to coach them". She said "so we're only good even men say we are". Or something like that. Sounded like the start of a good joke, ah, I miss those times. Lord Sandhust is against "being kind to trans women in sports. Fairness to females must come first."
  16. Thank you very much Campion, really looking forward to looking at that. I've seen Hunt do it twice now , and you can see that it's iffy. Ah, the cat's out the bag, he won't do it again?
  17. Yes mad eyed lunatic that's it! I see, yes tighter face perhaps. And dyed hair. Every bloke on tv uses the same colour? They rarely let them stay grey, but anyway. I've only just finished listening to the 'Long Covid' debate in the Lords. I picked up a lot of info / updates. Must be a lunatic myself. They are now on the success of national women's sports. That's more your area AFS Lord Addington says he knows the government had a lot on their plate this summer, but why didn't they have a ceremony for the girls. He says " "I mean come on" They have set a target to fill Twickenham to 80,000 for the women's rugby in 2025 Baroness Taylor of Bolton says we have more women commentators in every sport now. Yeah. I hate that. They don't have the right tone, and it's harder now to find a male voice. Some of them don't even know how to play, let alone speak.
  18. Long covid debate in the House of Lords On BBC now Recorded earlier
  19. Why is Sunak wearing glasses, all of a sudden isn't it? And what's with Hunt. Don't like the devil / bloke, but recently watching a commons / panel debate and he looked more human than he does now. He looks like he's wired up? And keeps glancing to the right briefly. They're determined to tell us it won't last long, as if they could tell us how long even if it wasn't engineered. Anything to keep people quiet for another 2 years.
  20. I worry that the misinformation labels will stick, but at times it just feels like they make out that everyone is going along with it; just as they do with the other gates of covid, racism, sexism, jokes, banter, speech. When you speak to people not everyone falls for this 'stuff. I know they will make it harder and harder to speak up. On the radio they push this point that you need evidence, or the other person needs to be there to defend themselves. I often think back to an article I read in the early years of the millennium, that Tesco was coming down heavy on critics in Asia, was it? I detest Tesco. They are seen and heard everywhere, and get constant free sneaky publicity. Whether it's newspapers, TV, or even Banksy.
  21. I was tempted to share a few quotes from that article, one at the end blatantly says 'fresh blood', which is very open. I remember Barings. Haven't thought about that in so long. Wasn't Leeson a scapegoat? Probably? I always felt that if they make a film about it, it's probably 'dodgy'
  22. I'm sorry to hear that. It infuriating that these people cannot see what is lost, there is no logic or balance. No concern for killing all bacteria, or breathing in plastic particles. No curiosity about the steam on their glasses. I went to the dentist and all 4 patients had masks, including one lad who looked about 18, I especially sorry for him. Both receptionists had the masks too, but one had it half pulled down. The didn't ask me, but they did in the spring.
  23. That's interesting to me as I struggle to see any human or honest side in these people, and often think these things are something else entirely, however this looks as real as real is? And nice to see Trudeau looking different in the face. Like when he was ignored by 'Brazil'?
  24. I'm terrible i often forget the details of these things, so apart from recognising the name from radio shows ... I'm not over familiar. So, I just searched and clicked on the first link of interest ... Pope dissolves Knights of Malta leadership, issues new constitution, Sept 2022 https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/pope-dissolves-knights-malta-leadership-issues-new-constitution-2022-09-03/
  25. Thanks for the info, I look out for the Eagle, and always try to keep an eye out for it ... like Barklays Bank; ever since I read 'in my early days', that they had financed the war, etc. (I suppose that's all banks, anyway. I just searched and I see the Barclays Eagle was introduced in 1728. I've been waiting for that to happen for so long, and I learnt about it at school. It really hit my thoughts back then that a wheelbarrow of money was worth nothing, but a loaf of bread was valuable. I've thought about it a lot since the millennium, and of course 2007/ 2008.
