  1. What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    I think I'm right in saying that the UK is in a tiny minority of European countries where the law doesn't already work like this. Having seen someone get knocked off a bike by a van driver in Holland, you can tell that they have a different attitude to it
  2. Separating the artist and their work

    It's not like we've not had 30 plus years of it, is it? He's always said things that are a bit questionable, but frankly I don't remember him coming out with anything that was worse than I hear over the dinner table at my in laws every Sunday. Unlike them, he makes great music (emphasis on makes, not 'made') and though I'm not making excuses for him, I can cope with people having views I don't agree with. There's nearly always an ambiguity about what he says anyway - he throws stuff out there, sits back and watches people read all sorts into it, and never clarifies his comments, ever. It's quite punk rock, really. He's a funny old fish and I don't think I'd really want to know him personally (interestingly the one person I know who has met him said he was very pleasant and chatty, and only when posing for a photo with her made a comment about then having to 'adopt the persona' and then looked very serious). His music (and unlike a lot of folk, I don't make a big distinction between his solo work and when he was in The Smiths) connects with me like nobody else's, and it would have to take something pretty bad to snap me out of that. New album is growing rapidly on me - even the somewhat clunky 'I Bury The Living', the closing couple of minutes of which, it turns out, are sublime
  3. What grinds my gears...

    My Facebook is just pictures of me doing my charity work, so I doubt that was the issue. One of the events was a sponsored human centipede, maybe that was it
  4. What grinds my gears...

    Getting a job offer, sorting everything out, and then the offer being withdrawn because they shouldn't really have offered it in the first place. There's nothing for it. I'm going to have to become a male prostitute
  5. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Not enough money for crushing saboteurs IMO
  6. Separating the artist and their work

    Latest album is good. Don't think I'll get as much from it as the previous one though, that was fab
  7. Oasis

    In fairness I think it's more of a homage than a rip off. It's not like it's an obscure track is it? I like the mad flute/piccolo (or whatever it is) bits on it
  8. Oasis

    I quite like the Plastic Bertrand one. A long time since I've said that about anything from the Oasis stable. If you're going to rip something off you might as well rip off something good
  9. Shed Seven

    I got a retweet from Rick Witter a few weeks ago and I've not got out of bed since. Haven't really felt the need
  10. What mobile phone should I go for?

    Still can't get my head round the fact that the cheapest iPhone X costs a thousand pounds
  11. What grinds my gears...

    We can laugh but dog chod is an invaluable source of protein for some senior citizens
  12. What grinds my gears...

    People that pick up their dog's shites, put them in a little bag, then hang them from a bush or gate. These people are monsters and should be killed
  13. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    It's got to be at least as useful as my actual degree
  14. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I spent a fortune on trying to bring in people with Mickey Mouse degrees and failed miserably to do so, which is how I lost my job as Head of Recruitment at Disneyland Paris
  15. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    This is pretty much all down to me. I've really raised my game lately - worked through a couple of lunches, had an energy drink etc
