I’m right behind all these people who want the coal mines opened again. Open all the old ones, and hundred new ones, I say! Ignore the climate change objections, they’re bollocks. Only question is… who’s going to work in them? Most of the old miners have got better jobs now, and they ain’t going back. […]

Modern life is rubbish

More sub-Guardian garbage from the Telegraph women’s section: We need consistency across the board. The same plastic, foil and clingfilm regulations must be applicable in every council area, to put an end to the current confusion. The issue of recycling isn’t going to go away – quite the reverse – and that means we need […]

Mark Francois. You should see the snobbish comments made on Twitter about him. The FBPE types really go to town looking down their noses at the fact that his English isn’t as good as theirs. Endless mediocrities with 2:2s in English or Sociology acting as if they’re God’s gift to the intellectual world declaring that […]

Quote of the Day

From Jim in comments: Social ostracism. Being ‘Anti-Eu’ when there was zero chance of us being anything other than in it was a position that held no danger for the people who these turncoats socialise with. ‘Oh Matthew, you and your Euroscepticism, you’re so funny, we’ll have to start calling you Nigel! More champers and […]
