I don't doubt the skill involved and the speed etc, I haven't been interested in it for years though. Prefer to watch touring cars.

Don't mind a bit of BTCC myself. Our family used to know Andy Priaulx quite well. My heart lies with WRC rally driving myself.

The phrase 'He's one of our own...' especially on the official STFC twitter feed.

That's what i was thinking...here's their response in full https://www.league.org.uk/news/employment-tribunal-regarding-ethical-veganism-league-statement

"Staff at the League have always had the choice of joining an ethical pension scheme, but in 2015 the guidelines around pensions changed so we weren’t legally able to offer this scheme as an automatic enrolment"

That sounds remarkably like bullshit to me, I know that when I had a pension with a private company whilst they had an agreement with a provider (Scottish Widows) it was up to me what scheme I chose to invest it in?

Think smashed it can be acceptable depending on the tone used. Like if someone's a bit unsure they'll do well and someone goes "Naa, you'll smash it mate." Is alright but I think over hamming/over use is fucking annoying.

"Just put the bin out. Fucking smashed it!"
"Woke up at six am Today. I'm smashing it."
"Wearing boxers shorts. I'm gonna smash it!"

Similarly, "epic" when something just isn't fucking epic.

"Went to Town today, was so busy. It was epic".

Hows about fuck off Wink

Yep on flames or even just "flames". No.

I'm not sure about anywhere else but in Bristol the hyperbolic use of the word 'vile'....

Some bloke has been recommended for release after serving 45 years for murdering 3 children, mutilating them and impaling their bodies on the garden fence - this in Worcester, mind.

The psychologist identified a number of factors which make it less likely that Mr McGreavy will reoffend in future.

Less fucking likely! I despair.

Points West reporting it might get cold in January/February.

Glad they told me - I was dusting off me Flip-flops.

Are they letting him out on the proviso that a man name Jed is a wanted man?
