I have a vision of you shaking 50 severed testicles in an over large festered sackcloth scrotum.

I wonder why?

When looking for work recently after being made redundant as a stores person for an aircraft manufacturer, my mum was told by an agency that she was a dinosaur and that all employment these days is telephone work.

So there you go. If you are doing something that doesn't involve making or receiving calls all day, you obviously don't have a job, because jobs like that don't exist these days.

The best part is, if they had left it there it might never have been noticed.

History is hard to lose now that Google stores it all. They'll have to add Google to the List of Terrible Websites when they bring in their web controls.

Like China did.

Banning fox hunting is a bad thing. If foxhunting is banned, why not halal slaughter? Better yet why not just keep both legal? Fuck the foxes & fuck you.

foxes are cunts - kill the fucking lot of 'em along with the blood sucking 'giro monkey' cunts too

Elby the Beserk said...

Might still be here as well (seems flushed from Google's cache) now ..

Old Holborn said...


Ban Halal as well then.

My glee at fox hunting being banned has nothing to do with foxes and everything to do with the landed gentry being told just once in the last thousand years to do as they are told, instead of the other way round.

They don't like it do they? More on Otis Ferry to follow

Mark Wadsworth said...

OH, that's a good summary (not that I agree on fox hunting, if you want to get one over the landowners we should cancel agrulcultural land subsidies), but even that google cache doesn't work, I tried elby's link but that was of no avail.

Try this

Banning Fox hunting was a massive anti countryside move which any true libertarian would see as being unjust.

I've never been fox hunting, but I have several friends who do hunt. It isn't about wealth, its about tradition and its about countryside. Nu Lab wanted revenge over the miners, and so went for the cute little foxes.
The number of businesses which suffered because of this block on free trade isn't usually mentioned - but its over 10K - MOST OF WHOM WERE NOT TOFFS!

You are just a class snob - hating the rich and hating the underclass, and you are no libertarian!

Old Holborn said...


More than 10K businesses were wrecked by the abolition of slavery.

Your point?

I don't hate the rich. I am rich.
