#3045977 Sydney Siege

If on balance of risk, and its safe to do so I'd agree....

 

I doubt it even occurred to the armed NSW police response unit.

I wouldn't go that far - I think by and large whatever your view of Farage before that show tonight, it'll have remained largely unchanged after. Certainly wouldn't have done him much harm though. 

 

I was a little disappointed in the show to be honest - don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting Frost/Nixon, but Steph and Dom have been by and large rather critical of UKIP on Gogglebox - I didn't think it it would be 30 minutes of Farage bashing, don't get me wrong otherwise he wouldn't have agreed to it - but at times it came across as a bit of a party polictical broadcast. 

 

Rare that I find a line in the Telegraph that sums up my feelings about such programmes but: "there was also the uncomfortable implication that if you are posh, getting sozzled and smoking your head off is laudable behaviour whereas if you are poor, it just makes you feckless."

Maybe it was impractical

 

This seems unlikely because Wolford has decided it was possible.




#3045379 Rugby League virtually ignored at SPOTY - moans here please

Posted by gingerjon on 15 December 2014 - 09:46 AM

"exactly who SPOTY in its current incarnation is for"

 

The BBC, pure and simple: it impossible to avoid the onanism in the build up to the programme, though quite easy to avoid the programme itself. It is then impossible to avoid the smug self satisfied post-climax grin on the face of the BBC Sports reporters who post- ejaculation insist on re-living every orgasmic moment.

 

I am quite concerned by the level of detail here.

Struggling to see how Russell Brand visiting a food bank is relevant to Ukip ...




#3044057 New Kits 2015

"Relegation would be awful for London," they said.
"It would kill them," they said.

They finally get a great shirt and some sponsors and are promoting themselves!

 

Thing is, it shouldn't have taken relegation for this to happen.  But it did and there's no point dwelling on *all* the missed opportunities we've had.  It's still only marketing at this stage - even if it's marketing I'm very happy to see.

Absolutely spot on.  Well played Broncos.




#3041483 Israel makes a stand against a terrorist

Posted by gingerjon on 05 December 2014 - 03:53 PM

Adams is an elected representative not a terrorist

 

It is possible to be both those things at the same time.

Defender of paedophiles blocked from entering terrorist state.

 

Hard to see who to back.




#3040997 London Broncos launch business club!

Posted by gingerjon on 04 December 2014 - 04:57 PM

Leigh, Bulls, Fev all released their shirt designs for next year, I would imagine all will have their replicas for sale before Christmas.  Guess which Champs club haven't released theirs and definitely won't have it on sale before Christmas?  Same club, same failings.

 

Doing a fair bit of social media build up to the launch of the kit though.

 

The Broncos having merchandise for sale at Christmas is one of the signs in Revelations.

I'm pleased to see things happening now.  That they should have happened years ago does not change that.  Until someone events a time machine you've got to work with what you've got.




#3040507 Man builds nail bomb but not charged with terrorism

Posted by gingerjon on 03 December 2014 - 11:21 AM

Looks like a terrorist to me.  

 

It's the part where he was planning on a terror campaign to cause terror.




#3038247 Privatised vs Nationalised Rail

Posted by gingerjon on 27 November 2014 - 06:39 PM

 

 

I didn't post it to show that nationalised railways "are no good".

.

 

No, that was your amusing diversion to Italy.

Feel free to cite some other, more positive innovations that have come from Trenitalia.

 

We liked the bit where in response to public concerns they completely changed their advertising and on-train service.

 

It goes against what some people claim state-owned monopolies are like.




#3037995 Superstitious Cult vote to become (slightly) less sexist.

If you really think that people are inherently self centred then I feel sorry for you. What an insular and mean spirited world you must live in.
