It's considered sensible to slam newspapers such as the Daily Fail [/quote]

😄 lol yeah that's the exact incident that I was alluding to in post #2003.

Do you remember when Stephen  Hendry kept beating Jimmy White in all those finals.

Hendry wasn't exactly popular at the time and someone played the Chas n Dave "Snooker Loopy" ringtone just as he was getting down to play a shot!.

That must have been in the early days of mobiles.

Strange how many people on this forum who don't read the Daily Mail seem to know what is written in it [/quote]
 That's because it's usually quoted by intelligent papers. Usually under the headline 'Daily Mail upset about everything'.  And don't get me started on the Daily Express..... Mind you, both are very handy when torn up for toilet duty.


Can't remember the last time i bought an actual newspaper, i never really saw the point after learning years ago that you could buy the next days paper at Charing Cross Station from about 9pm the night before, whereas obviously now when reading online everything is up to date as quickly as possible.
Even now i get people at work on their lunch break telling me stories that they're reading in their papers which i read 30hrs ago the morning before.


As for the Daily Mail itself, it's just a source of daily info, and a lot of it. I couldn't give a monkeys about what their political stance is as that's not what i'm about. In fact i find the comments sections more interesting as there are so many different views, a bit like on here, but with even more world wide opinions which can make some funny reading.


Yep there's no point in buying papers anymore, you can pick up a free paper at most rail and bus stations - Metro, evening standard etc. They're free albeit they're full of adverts obviously.
The Sunday papers are more like a collection of lifestyle magazines than actual news sheets- sport, fashion, tech, motoring, interior design, celebrity etc.


I'll admit to a sly look at the DM on occasions, I don't agree with their politics, but they know how to incite the middle classes- property prices and immigration for example. it's an absolute right wing rag but it's entertaining none the less.

It's exactly that, just a free bit of entertainment you can quickly browse through and discard the majority of it although there'll always be something that grabs your attention. That'll do for me.
I glance other media websites as well, and read some stories that are so fabricated and full of shit that I really don't understand how these "reporters" keep their jobs?
Even with spellchecker half of them can't write a sentence without several spelling errors (still baffles me?) and you get some that must spend all day trawling YouTube for a shocking video, that's probably over 15 years old anyway and has been seen so many times over the years but because the reporters were still at school when it was first released it's a first for them.
In the comments section in the Daily Mail there are some staunch god botherers as it is a mix of the USA and UK news, which can make for some very funny slanging matches.

Oh and just like to add that I thought Kieran Wilson gained a lot of fans by pleading for the "mobile" offender be allowed back to his seat.

If that were me, on the backstroke of what may be a £200,000 stroke, I would have used his balls for practice.

Still on the snooker, mugs who pay £100+ for a ticket then spend the whole time watching the overhead monitors to see if their stupid grinning faces are on TV.

Take a selfie and grin at that.

General / rear brake light??
« Last post by johnakay on Today at 10:27:01 AM »
what do you call these things that are fitted to top box's.
I know it sound obvious but cannot find any on ebay using that.
what I'm after is a rear light that has a brake light inc.
I can find one of each but not 2 together.
going touring in may so buying a bigger top box and I want the above fitted inside the red reflector.


probably might be best having separate lights .
what I would like is for them to be inside the red reflector that you got on the topbox.
