  1. An old ex matelot walks into the local Cathedral and says to the rector, "I would like to join this f*cking church." The astonished man replies, "I beg your pardon, sir. I must have misunderstood you. What did you say?" "Listen, damn it. I said I want to join this f*cking church!" "I'm very sorry sir, but that kind of language is not tolerated in the house of our Lord ." The rector leaves his desk and goes into the bishop's study to inform him of the situation. The Bishop agrees that the rector does not have to listen to that foul language. They both return to his office and the Bishop asks the ex matelot, "Sir, what seems to be the problem here?" "There is no damn problem," the ex matelot says. "I just won 5 million quid on the fecking lottery and I want to join this f*cking church to get rid of some of this fecking money." "I see," said the Bishop, "and is this f*cking **** giving you a hard time?
  2. It has proved that some people now believe that everything they read on social media is true simply because it is retwated or whatever you call it thousands of times, it also proves that it doesn’t matter about fact or statistics if it says something else on a video. Other than that, yes, not a lot of point to it, but it actually makes much more sense over the last couple of weeks than it has for a while. It also shows that nobody gives a **** about some short arsed **** making threats on a discussion board.
  3. You are right mate, I’ve taken to listening to Times Radio whilst in the car, they have some good guests and interviews. Yesterday, Lady CEO of a VERY big National recruitment Agency talking about shortages of labour. Her figures, not mine, apparently prior to the pandemic over 15,000 people took their HGV/LGV Driving Test every quarter, (no figures on those passing the test, just taking it) as the pandemic hit that number fell to less than 1,000 on average, per quarter. So there are 56,000 people not replacing workers on retirement etc. Simple math. On the hospitality industry apparently the problem is, in her words, that as soon as they fill up requests for workers the employers are coming back to them within a few days saying that, due to some testing +ve for CV that 5, 10 or 20 staff are having to isolate and so the pool of available workers is exhausted very quickly. Countryfile on Sunday reflecting the chat on NFU boards, farmers switching to producing quality over quantity as the guaranteed price under the CAP has gone, supply and demand. Something like a 40% increase on the money they are getting for Lamb as the sickness of the EU in overproduction to dump in third world countries has gone. Some guy with a haulage business complaining that he is now having to pay more money per hour to retain, recruit staff. Dont you just love it when the things we predicted become reality? Who would think that us capitalist right wingers would celebrate when the workers get better pay and working conditions. Still not quite the 820,000 unemployed that certain types were predicting. LMFAO.
  4. That’s all good, got every respect for anybody who served as I did, pretty pathetic for someone to claim something that the subject himself is not claiming. Depends what his branch is, CPO is equivalent to a Sgt. in most Regiments. WO1 is a different ball game, some Regiments it’s easier to progress to WO1 simply because there is no WO2. All of it is dead man’s shoes. But, at least the subject of the discussion is not making false claims that I can see, I’ve discussed it with a friend, ex Fleet Chief Master at Arms, strangely referred to as “Master” you would have thought that title would be disposed of as ‘inappropriate’. More worrying is my plan to use the point and laugh meme that Ken has provided, simply because I don’t read his posts. Perhaps one of you can prompt me by saying “post the meme Huge.” That will work.
  5. I’m not very good with those meme things and emojis Ken, are you able to find me a “points and laughs” one for the next time the insignificant short arse puts up a claim about his Son’s rating? TIA.
  6. Disappointing result in the Batley and Spen by election for Andrew Smith of the “Rejoin the EU Party” requiring 33 more votes to beat its main rival Howling Laud Hope (Looney Party.)
  7. I don’t read his **** Ken, so there is no chance that I will reply to him! I was adding to the information you posted, I think most people know Martin Lewis and know he is/was/is a Remainer, he was on social media enough, with him there is little point, Well, As much chance as I have of getting recognition that a RN. Chief Petty Officer is not an ‘Officer’. the equivalent rank in the RAF is Flight Sergeant, ARMY and Royal Marines of a Staff Sergeant. (With a few quirks amongst them) But there again, he chose to change the anti and promote his nipper to Warrant Officer, which, funnily enough is still not a Commissioned Officer but hey, what the heck, it floats his boat, perhaps even whilst tied up in the harbour with a fecking long rope.
  8. “ mobile firms were allowed to set fair usage caps even when the EU ban on mobile roaming charges applied, and O2 and Three would have been able to make similar adjustments even pre-Brexit.” Just emphasising this part and adding, for those who aren’t aware that Martin Lewis was a vigorous campaigner for remain.
  9. EE will introduce a £2/day fee for mobile roaming in Europe from January EE's new £2/day flat fee will apply to any customers who sign up to a new contract or renew their existing one after 7 July 2021, unless they are on one of its specific roaming tariffs - 'Smart' and 'Full Works'. The new charge won't come into force until next January and you can continue to roam for free - subject to a fair usage policy of 50GB/mth - until then. EE customers with an Essential plan can also choose to take out a 30-day 'Roam Abroad Pass' for £10, which will be cheaper than the new £2/day fee if you're going to Europe and plan to use your phone for more than five days. The provider blames the shake-up on a need to "support investment". BT and Plusnet mobile customers, which are part of the same group as EE, are not affected and will be able to continue to roam in Europe for free. Currently with EE? You WON'T face roaming charges until you renew If you're an existing EE customer, it's worth noting you won't face these new roaming charges if you simply do nothing - it's only those who sign up to a new EE deal or renew their contract from 7 July 2021 onwards who may have to pay. So you don't need to take action immediately, but diarise to check what's best to do when your contract's term is up. If you're on a good deal currently and expect to be roaming a lot next year, it might be worth simply letting your contract roll on, but it's worth doing a full comparison with MSE's Cheap Mobile Finder tool to check. Of course, if you are considering switching to a rival firm remember it too may follow EE's lead in reintroducing roaming charges in due course. O2 and Three are limiting their 'fair use' data caps Separately, O2 and Three have announced changes to their 'fair use' policies which cap the amount of your UK data allowance you can use for free while roaming in Europe. It's important to note mobile firms were allowed to set fair usage caps even when the EU ban on mobile roaming charges applied, and O2 and Three would have been able to make similar adjustments even pre-Brexit. While these changes will be a blow for a small number of very heavy users who spend a lot of time in the EU, for most it's unlikely to make much difference. In our most recent site poll, 78% of MSE users told us they use 3GB of data or less each month overall. Elsewhere, BT Mobile, Giff Gaff, Plusnet, Sky Mobile, Tesco Mobile, Three, Virgin Mobile, Vodafone and Voxi have confirmed they have no plans to change their current mobile roaming policies - we've also put this question to other providers and we'll update this story when we know more.
  10. He’s on the phone to his Son to ask if he’s been promoted to WO1 yet.
