Can't tell you how much I love that tweet from the Pogues :lol:.

The banana split just tweeted the lyric back at them, then went on to say things like "Well I didn't know what the word herronvolk meant, so I can hardly be one can I". :fp: Good grief, how strawberry floating thick are these awful twats.

Nothing says 'Posh Tory Bastard' to me quite like anyone who likes or is involved in rugby. Well, other than horse racing, if you exclude the people you find muttering to themselves all day inside high street bookies.


English rugby more-so than Welsh rugby I think

Horse racing has very visible class divides. Go to the races and you'll see how they literally fence off the classes.

Another day and another of Bozo's advisors resigns.

Yep. Be interesting to see how the money funnels down and what the WRU and SRU get compared to the RFU. Presumably none will end up with Ulster rugby given how linked they are to the IRFU as well.

Patel's statement is a great example of a non apology.

I bet she delivered her apology with that same usual expression on her face as well. The one my cat makes when he's puked in my slippers.

They are probably attempting to turn this into another monotonous culture war thing.

The thing is Patels just going to get into trouble again and then Johnson will just get look weak like he did over Cummings.

The Prittster. She's come from the future to deport the parents of future competent government leaders.

Priti Patel is consistently one of the most unpopular MPs in the views of the public.

I don't see how they can't see they are going to have to remove her. Its Cummings all over again. They just don't get it, and thats why Labour now hold a polling lead over the Conservatives. That was UNTHINKABLE when Boris Johnson took over.
