#551036 New Dr Who...... is a woman.

Posted by Hunterian on 18 July 2017 - 07:19 AM

slap my thighs with a carpet beater and call me a cynic but.....................my own worthless opinion is that this has been done simply to appease. The BBC simply wish to be seen once again as a diverse institution.....traditionalists will be turning in their tardis'. I await a new murder mystery series based on the investigations of Mister Marple.
PS..........I don't watch the Doc (haven't done really since the days of William Hartnell) so they can get on with it.

I was more of a Tom Baker fan myself but Peter Davidson is the Doctor of my era.

I'm not bothered by a Lady Doc as wherever she is she'll be able to Time Travel back and make sure my dinner is always on the table.

and thinks to self....'Quick, my sash, where the fuck is my sash....damn those republican daleks!'

I don't mind Doctor Who but funny to hear that a fictional character in sci-fi cannot change sex.

Wee birthday H ?

You're good Bastion, my son's 9th.

#550423 Weather?

Posted by Hunterian on 13 July 2017 - 06:32 AM

when do ye go H ? You & your family enjoy anyway mate....at least you'll be guaranteed decent weather out there.

Wednesday Dug, finish up tomorrow for nearly 3 weeks.

This will be the second year in a row all inclusive. Self catering is all very well but it means shopping, cooking and cleaning up, all which you should be avoiding on a break.

I've even packed some cigars which I occasionally indulge in on hols.

#549530 Who is in the wrong

Posted by Hunterian on 07 July 2017 - 12:30 PM

Cyclists...ALL of them were in the wrong London or not. Are the laws of the road immune to cyclists in London. At the traffic lights there was (as far as I could make out) a lane for straight ahead which the lorry driver was in and a LEFT TURN ONLY lane which is CLEARLY INDICATED via a road marking arrow and ALL cyclists were in that lane...THE WRONG LANE because they ALL went straight ahead! Do these cunts think road laws do not apply to them?



The incident we had was earlier this year coming home from the town. The road is two laned...one for east bound and one for west bound (which we were in). There were temporary traffic lights due to road works which were approx 100-150 yards long. As we approached the lights which were at red there were about  4 or 5 cars in front parked correctly waiting but this cunt on a bike came from behind, passed every car and settled in front of every waiting car so when the lights turned to green the bastard nicked away in front with a lengthy line of traffic having to crawl behind the bastard! He should have drawn up behind the last car when he arrived and waited his turn but no, not for him. I fucking detest cyclists!

Cyclists on the pavement, unless they are under 7, is a huge issue.  If you are not confident enough to cycle on the road do not cycle on the pavement.  This particular lobby want Britain to be like Holland but apart from having a major advantage in having had cyclists and infrastructure for years Holland is also flat!  Cyclists also dodge between lights and the pavement when it suits them.


In their defence there are just as many head cases on road but not many drive on the pavement.

I'm surprised the tories haven't sold it off for pennies to their cronies to be converted to apartments.

Forget about the Tories Panda, this will be decided on a cross party basis.  Apartments could be one thing, a Museum, a huge Weatherspoons!!!


The most prime Real Estate in London, sell it off perhaps but a good way of funding the moves or indeed ploughing back into the public funds.


Just like Glasgow Uni it has the veneer of being old but it isn't.

I've had a think about my/your reply re this H and forgive but I'm passing on the middle three sentences in your quote.....simply because it will do nothing for the substance of your thread and, if required, can be discussed elsewhere...Corbyn has already...in the GE thread.


Anyways...point 1)........How long is a piece of string? I know from experience that it isn't an easy undertaking. There are so many specifics to be considered and that was within one building and as it occurred many staff felt they had no alternative to accept a kind of redundancy pay off. I'm not saying couldn't be done as there are a lot of government/public service departments in and around London.


Point 5)....Simply on the basis of new build or refurbish....I have no probs with a new build (as long as they build a hostel for the fuckers alongside). Your last comment is agreed.

Yes, a set of modest apartments next door would be fine.  The refurbishment is one thing but the lack of debate on the subject is another.  There may be issues with redundancies which is not a particularly great spin-off but then this does and will continue to happen elsewhere in the UK.  I feel now that a bold gesture would be a good idea.  London is a magnificent city but it can do without the cream on top.


This would be a similar but different idea to the BBC moving all and whole up to Manchester although I appreciate that not nearly as many people would be involved.  It's a London bubble and we know politically as well as culturally London is not really reflective of anywhere else in Britain.

It's about time that this issue was raised again given that there is a good argument to spend a £1BN on the Palace of Westminster and yet not properly clad a block of flats!


There are arguments for and against this renovation/refurbishment but that's not the main issue, it's the fact that I don't believe a suitable debate was had.  I'm a Unionist which may have been obvious but I see this as folly and a Political accident.  Corby should really be going for this as it is the wrong thing to do at the wrong time.


It's only being done, in my view, to stop some Londoncentric Politicians from having to travel.


If we want a 'Northern Powerhouse' move the Parliament in a Northerly direction, London will not suffer unduly.


i'm repeating myself a wee bit here but it's a bad idea that will never run to budget!

A favourite for Friday...

For any Friday, or any day for that matter. The perfect proportions for a lady in my humble opinion.

#546481 General Election thread.......

Posted by Hunterian on 12 June 2017 - 12:54 PM

An incredible result but needless to say that Mrs May has made a first class mess of things.  She should have stayed put and then got on with Brexit!


Now she looks very fragile and the coalition has saved her skin temporarily.  There is no way that her tainted leadership will last for the full term and the Tories recently have had an excellent record at sharpening up the knives for a leadership challenge.  If Boris makes it then we will have a Labour Government very soon.


In all of this hubbub May has kicked Indyref II into the future.


The Political climate just now is so volatile that the last month has gone from a sure fire Tory majority to scraping past the post thanks to the DUP.  


Some months ago I went into the bookies and asked for odds on Nicola Sturgeon standing down as First Minister, their response was "whose your source"?  Typical bookies felt they were missing out on something.


Wonder if they'd take that bet now?


I was at the Count in my area and would maintain that there is absolutely no way the process can be corrupt, it is so heavily scrutinized.  We are very lucky to have such a system which albeit has it's issues but is completely above board.

#544334 Trump's Trip Was a Catastrophe for U.S.-Europe Relations

Posted by Hunterian on 29 May 2017 - 12:05 PM

In the author's opinion of course. I don't for a minute think Trump will be unduly concerned with any bitching coming from the EU via Merkel. The EU, as has been shown during the Brexit process especially since article 50 was triggered, has shown itself to be a totalitarian hypocritical institution.....



The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I've experienced that in the last few days,” she said. “We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands.” Notice that she said “Europeans,” not Germans. Notice too that she did not rule out that Europe might rely on the U.S. and U.K. in the future: The door is not closed. But the old order has passed.


They detest any form of disagreement or argument!

Dug, it looks bad for them.


We wanted to leave the club, told them we were leaving and now they want to charge us to leave. They then want to say to other clubs not to be as nice to us in case anybody else wants to get out.


Hypocrisy doesn't cover it.
