      I don’t like beer of any type full stop, mild makes me want to gip and bitter I just don’t like the taste, still everyone to their own, I like spirits (except gin) and of course my Cumberland Brandy when it turns out OK. Anyway mild is considered a bit of a girly drink where I live! Who really cares what booze a person drinks as long as they do it in excess, Guido you seem to be dragging the depths for every little none story about Teddy, what about that councillor who used to be a Con and swopped parties to UKip saying he warned Dave that all sorts of nasties would happen if Dave passed the gay marriage thing, he wouldn’t be on the local drainage board would he.

        Animal Farm is a satire on the Soviet Union. The animals (the people) kick out the farmer (the Tsar) but soon some animals, the pigs (the bolshevik elite) assume the old powers of the farmer.

        1984 is a stark warning on totalitarianism of the kind which can be produced by socialists and national socialists alike.

    BBC staff turned a blind eye to the sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile of up to 1,000 girls and boys in the corporation’s changing rooms and studios, according to a leaked internal inquiry report.

    The inquiry by Dame Janet Smith found the late TV and radio presenter’s behaviour had been recognised by BBC executives but they took no action to stop him, according to the Observer newspaper.

        So they let Saville get away with child abuse right under their noses for 50 years. Furthermore they’ve had other abusers in their midst only discovered by their activities on the net. Then you have the run-of-the-mill pervs. They were up to no good on the premises of the BBC itself.

        You expect this cesspool of deparavity and perversion to investigate itself? Has it not occured to you that the reason why this went on for so long is because the vast majority of the people working at the BBC though it was OK? That it was perfectly acceptable behaviour? That those that did so much as raise an eyebrow at the goings-on were to be shouted down and made to feel they were in the wrong?

        It is high time the entire organisation was investigated from top to bottom, from the stories of sexual depravity to money going astray and pay-offs of top brass. In the meantime the public need to get the message and ignore anything that comes out of the “Ministry of Truth”, because it is all lies from perverts and crooks. Their opinions count for nothing.

    Lord Carlile is also known (msm and net) to have been wheeled out to “attack” [the complete OPPOSITE of the Rennard issue) J Assan.ge over allegations of his sexual misconduct in Sweden – on page 23 of the Mail On Sunday – published on August 19th 2012 and mentioned on here on the same day

        It is also strange that Carlile has been so muscular in both his prosecution and defence in two cases in which formal charges have not in fact been laid.

        The R’ennard allegations hold much more water than the A’ssange allegations. Unless of course Channel Four have been played like a fiddle by R’ennard’s enemies on the left and he has in fact been a victim of defamation by female members of his party.

        Unless the women come forward and retract there should perhaps be a formal complaint filed so a criminal investigation can be completed and charges laid.

        Charges still have not been brought against A’ssange in Sweden.

        Imteresting Fact. Somerset…Summer people…historically too wet to live there in winter.

          The Somerset Levels were reclaimed from the sea about 300 years ago and have since shrunk as a result of drying out. This means they are actually below sea level in many places. Flooding is more or less an annual occurence. If you don’t like getting your feet wet, don’t live there.

          Alfred the Great liked the area as a place to hide out from the Vikings, because he knew the routes through the marshes and they didn’t – this was before the marshes were drained of course. Alfred burnt his buns there.

    Hey ed
    Here’s one of the reasons for your so called Cost of living crisis

    Thousands of borrowers who took shared-equity mortgages from the Co-operative Bank are being forced on to high interest rates, the Telegraph has learnt. Those affected took out mortgages through a scheme called “Ownhome” between 2008 and 2010.
    As their fixed-rate deals come to the end, the Co-op is refusing to allow borrowers to remortgage at today’s record low rates. Customers are being dumped instead on to its standard variable rate at 4.74pc. Mortgage brokers said such customers might find it difficult to move to other lenders, who were unlikely to accept this type of debt

In the second picture he had two wooden legs, two hooks, two eye patches and two parrots. In fact it was a fine image of the state the last Labour government left this country in, not excluding the parrots.

    In fairness to Useless Ned, I too wouldn’t d***k a bitter, a mild or a lager. If God hadn’t, in his infinite mercy, invented cider then I could, I think, have developed a taste for stout. But failing that I would be tee-total. Apart from the red wine. And the sambuca. And the… Ah, fuck it. Cider was my gateway drug.

    From my point of view Ned not liking bitter (or mild) is no impediment to being PM. Nor is the fact that he talks through his nose. Nor, indeed is the fact that he really does look like like Wallace off ‘Wallace and Grommit’.

    No. By far Ned’s biggest impediment to being PM is that he is indelibly associated with the biggest fuckwit ever to stride the Westminster stage (the Maximum Imbecile) and the biggest UK economic clusterfuck in hiistory.

    That is not to say that all his other failings shouldn’t be highlighted and used against him.

    If it’s important to those hard-dr*in*ing fuckwits in (say) Newcastle that their wanabbe-PM can’t stomach a pint of mild then lavender-handed Ned should be targeted by hard-dr*in*king, fag smoking Farage as a bit of a lady-boy.

    And if folk up north don’t lie a ‘soft, southern-poofter’ accent then that too should be used against him.
