state funded schools in birmingham calling children to islamic prayer over the playground speakers, eschewing music lessons music, segregation... and the bbc doing a 'what are british values 'phone in this morning. cunnys.



evening standard , who seem to be phasing out their female genital mutilation wall to wall coverage , for a 'say no to rape in war' campaign. to be published in depth every night,, along with pictures of skinny london supermodels falling out of night clubson cocaine and articles on womens shoes and hanbags which cost £15,000 each.

and articles on 'suuuper property dahrling' that cost £25 million for a studio flat in barnes .tedious double page spreads on walthamstow village , sandwiches that are made by freegans for £50...and avante garde homosexual dance troops from slovienia .this paper says nothing at all to the average londoner.




musicals , and the cast's of musicals, especially amateur ones in church halls,romford, last saturday night.

Oh god. I just turned on bbc1 and had the misfortune of watching 10 mins of what used to be Casualty.

Edit - That'll teach me to come home from the pub early.

To go with Talksport now calling matchdsy “game day” sky are now calling clean sheets “shut outs”. Can’t the yanks learn the terms that we have used for our sport for over a century instead of us changing it for them? I don’t see any of the NFL terms being changed into queens English.

This trend of football fans, especially kids, filming themselves and doing vlogs at matches and then uploading them onto YouTube. Must be so annoying to be sat next to.

I like fan footage because it gives good new crowd angles and shows the celebrations of the crowd during goals (something the tv never shows enough) but why they have to ruin it with their shit commentary, like anyone gives a fck what they think, is beyond me.

The football session I run and play in has been going for 12 years, in which time I estimate we have paid the venue around...gulp...£30k!

Anyway, last week, after we had finished, there were just two of us left talking on the pitch after the game. One of the staff came over to lock up - earlier than normal - so we headed to the gate, with me thinking, "OK, so I will have to do my warm down jog in the car park. Not a big deal". Bear in mind that it had rained a lot and it was pretty cold. Then, this happened:

1 - The member of staff locked me in and walked away. So I had to call her back to let me out. The shame of it, a bedraggled, grizzled 55 year old man begging a bored teenager to let him out of his astroturf prison.

2 - Two minutes later, half way through my warm down jog, all the lights were switched off, leaving me struggling to find my kit and the way back to the changing rooms.

3 - A further three minutes later, still in my wet kit, I am doing my customary warm down stretch in their gym, only for another member of staff to walk in and casually say: "Oh, we are closing in five minutes".

Wonderful. All they had needed to do to avoid all that was to warn us when we got there that their last booking had cancelled and that they would be closing early. I really enjoyed balancing on one leg in a freezing cold car park trying to peel off my soaking kit. Nice one! Grrrrrrr

"Things had started becoming increasingly desperate at Loftus Road but QPR have been handed a massive lifeline and the place has absolutely erupted. it's carnage. It's bedlam. It's 1-1."

Many, many years ago when I knew no better a group of us were having an evening meal with one of our suppliers and there was a very expensive bottle of white wine on the table of which we all had a glass. I duly added soda to make a spitzer much to the agast of one of my colleagues!

The Vocal Fry.

That annoying trait where the voice goes all croaky at the end of a sentence. The US/UK equivalent of the Aussie rising inflection.

One of my colleagues behind me does this and I can literally feel my front lobes aching, like scratching down a blackboard.

Compare and contrast with my cycle trainer / spinning experience:
- I am using a 15 years old Magura set-up that cost £80, plus my 1989 racing bike (Reynolds 531 manganese molybdenum steel frame, since you asked)
- It is totally manual, the only hi-tech bit is the 20 year old CatEye computer sat on my handlebars. No internet connected wizardry
- I am sat there pedalling on my own, usually trying to listen to a barely audible football commentary on Radio London, via the DAB radio I got from my gran when she died eight years ago (handle broken, aerial bent, but it still works; all damage by yours truly)
- I am a scruffy, grizzled 55 year old curmudgeon. No supermodel looks and designer gym kit here, sadly
- The only thing I smash when I do a cycling session is the DAB radio, when I knock it off it's shelf. Again.
