Sorry......doesn't ring a bell.
Yeah..hard to explain. He was very ill, had trouble with the bedroom tax, moved from the Leeds area down to the West Country somewhere.

I get very down (depressed?) from time to time, don't we all? As you get older, life becomes samey and predictable, which can lead to boredom and feeling low. Sometimes it lasts a few days, other times longer. But I am old and wise enough to know that, in my case, it will pass. You have to get through it, without the pills if possible.
I don't doubt that folk who are clinically, suicidally depressed need help, but remember. For every 'up' you get from the pills, there is an equal and opposite 'down' waiting for you when you stop. Just like alcohol or any other drug, really.

As a genuine medical doctor I can tell you there is a clinical condition known as 'derv despondency' :)

Derv despondency is where people's lives mirror the car they drive. For example, if you drive a plodding lifeless diesel car, a car that won't rev, or has any enthusiasm for knowing what can be found on the dark side of 4000 RPM, then it is unsurprising such people feel 'held back' and in a low mood.

Dr Opti's remedy for this malaise is to prescribe a a meaty howling V8 petrol engine with a minimum of 500 BHP.  Just like a good antidepressant this will help the depression lift.

But, be warned, derv despondency/depression, if left unchecked can prove devastating. Watch out for symptoms such as posting online just how far their dreary means of transport went on one gallon of the planet killing spores,

If this is the highlight of your life then nothing can be done to rehabilitate the unfortunate lost soul and such people will probably take solace in the purchase of a tartan picnic rug and a beige cardigan with wooden buttons.

Nothing further can be done to help such people. :-\
Nah, I'd be very depressed if I had to spend more on road tax than I do on fuel. Then there'd be the frustration of having a car capable of travelling very fast, but spending it's life stuck behind diesel astras and the like in traffic jams. Derv fumes emanating from the tailpipe getting into your expensive climate control system and choking you at your leather covered steering wheel. Big veins sticking out of your temple as your realise that, on today's roads, you can't realistically travel any faster than the car in front........but it costs you so much more to do it.

A couple of carers would be very welcome, thank you. One of them could take the fickin dog out in this constant, shitty weather, and the other could make me a fry up while I watch morning tv.  :)

Cheeky barstewards  ;D
That astra is exactly the same colour as wifey's. But, of course, hers is the more sensible option planet killing derv.

There are black scousers, brown scousers, Chinese scousers.....all kinds of scousers. This is because Liverpool has been a bustling metropolis for centuries.
Whereas, in Lincolnsausageshire, it's always been just yokels, contemplating the various length and shape of their carrots before they eat them. Bright eyes, nice teeth, but thick as pigshit.  ;D

Yes. Shanks had them all in his team of the sixties and seventies. ;)
That one sentence sums you up very nicely.  ::)

Corbyn has today tried to demonstrate how heartless the Tories are by not caring about the poor Labour voting folk up north who have been hit hard by floods in recent days. He has demanded they activate the Bellwin scheme.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellwin_scheme









They activated it three days ago.
God help us all if he ever gets elected.
I think Corbyn and Co are getting quite desperate, even at this early stage. Conference passed a motion condemning India over it's role in Kashmir. Consequently,  Hindis have been saying that they are going to vote conservative. You've never seen such a hasty reversal in Labour policy.  ;D
