Title: Brexit, power cuts, Hong Kong, Trump, knife crime, etc, etc
Post by: STEMO on 11 August 2019, 11:56:28
I'm turning into the type of person who turns the radio up if their car starts making a funny noise. Trying to find a way to drown out all of the shite that comes out of my tellybox and infests forums and newspapers. I'm fighting a losing battle at the moment but, if I disappear for a while, it's because I've put a triple layer tin foil helmet on. Or moved to the moon.

The only button I'd willingly press would be the big red one that starts the missiles flying. After I'd moved to the moon, of course.

Can we be of any assistance? :)

We can't afford to loose such a vital social influencer as Uncle Stemo  :o
without him and his helpful advice, I fear our country is doomed  :(

Agreed.

The forum would become a far less amenable place to spend an hour without his delightful furrow-browed scouse wit. :)

Fair comment STEMO. Every news bulletin is like the end of the world. Take the UK power outages. Not once did any of the news say the names or even type of power station that ceased generating or why. Instead they concentrate on the catastrophic consequences using inflamatory language. God only knows what it would be like in a real crisis.

There is no going back .

Nobody mentioned why a train needs an "engineer" with a laptop to visit it to reset it before it'll proceed after a brief supply quality issue (designed by German engineers, perhaps?) or why a Hospital didn't have a working backup supply, mind. ::)

The latter is symptomatic of shoddy reporting. Too hard to get some facts , e.g. when was it last working. Far easier to paint a picture , not necessarily accurate , of pandemonium.

When did you last hear a news bulletin which mentioned leaving the EU without a deal signed first which didn't present it as "crashing out" or "going over a cliff edge" ?
None of them would recognise objectivity or neutrality if it kicked them up the balloon knot.  ::)

Take no notice. We are in the middle of an election campaign. Or a campaign to frighten the opposition out of bringing a no confidence vote, which would result in an election campaign.  :)

all of them are so negative,drives me bonkers,same as they wont report on the yellow vests anymore,or the fact the hidden EU army(all the facemasked ones) are kicking the crap out of innocent bystanders,cannot understand why they dont start looking for positives,but that would entail something called work and research,instead of just copying everyone else!

The other morning my wife asked me why I was constantly scrolling up and down the news channels and I replied that I was looking for some good news .....

Have you also noticed that both BBC and SKY have seemingly ran out of mainstream guests to be interviewed on whatever subject they deem desperate on the day and are now fielding the most unknown, postpubescent CEO or senior partner of unheard foundations , research bodies or thinktanks that are remotely aligned to the subject in hand .

Yep she is demanding an all female, stop Brexit, coalition cabinet, because apparently this is the only thing that can save us from disaster.
You couldn't make this shite up.  ::)

No, Lucas makes Office Junior May look like a PM & Boris like Churchill++, where we know since 1991 that no Tory leader (but Boris semi-might) were anywhere near good enough to be Mrs T's semi-qualified butt wiper. :o

Current generation of popinjay politicians act like they are world class premier league football players where we all know they couldn't hack it in the Ryman league. ;)

We all know that Lucus, Swinton, Corbyn et al are life's failures & misfits, which is where The Brexit Party score & will win against them as real candidates, real people whom have had real careers in real jobs. :y

I get increasingly nervous about predicting the future voting habits of the UK electorate. The only party whose support isn't on the wane at this moment, are the useless, pointless, worthless Limpdems.  ::)

Yes no Diane Abbot. LGBTI + wasnt represented either.

How about selecting  a cabinet from every hundredth prisoner.?
