Obviously they took offense! Seems like a reasonable question to me if I'm completely honest.
That's twice in 2 weeks Alex Proud has done or said something I've respected. Shiiiiiiit.
...but it was the general thrust of this article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/thinking-man/11231796/If-youre-under-30-bad-luck.-Youre-screwed.html
As always I despise the `Baby Boomers are the most selfish people who ever lived` standpoint, but there's plenty of well-placed anger and compassion in it... Both qualities I thought the man completely lacked.
Geoff, I am disappoint...
What was it about the article that, as a reasonably well-off property-owning chap born in the 1970s, you found didn't especially speak to you?
...that he perceived as being less than his his at that age.
The guy's full of that kind of bellendry but it was reassuring to read a column of his that I agreed with the general thrust of (to repeat my phrasing upthread), because I don't think it's ever happened before.
He starts off by telling us how we've had diminishing returns but fails to actually point out it's basically a side-effect of Thatcherism, which is natural because as a Telegraph columnist he presumably spaffs one out over her picture every night.
On top of that, while telling us Labour and the Tories (and the Lib Dems) have effectively done their damnest to make it even worse for us, he blethers on about how it's all the fault of young people for not voting for these main parties. What an absolute cock-end, frankly. People DID vote for them and time and time again they completely ignored the needs of people.
but the person who sent it is obviously an idiot and can't use google so I'm glad they cancelled their booking.
hmmm. seems fishy.
anyone needy enough to name a venue after themselves might easily make something like this up to look like a hero.
so im finding it difficult to work out how i feel about this
terribly written, idiotic email from the car company
pretty good hardline response from proud
but then he crows about it on twitter to promote himself
but as you say, idiots who cant use google mainly
but strongly feel I should be involved.
Take offense to what someones said? Tell them to get tae fuck.
the car company could use working on a shorter name.
as in what would they specifically need to brief people about in advance? surely, aside from the punters, there's not exactly a much of a difference between gay and straight venues.
but I suspect it would have been more along the lines of 'it's at a gay bar: if you're not okay with that, don't come'.
It does seem like a slightly OTT prickly answer, but I don't really know the context so...
that conjoining religion with homophobia feeds nicely into the islamaphobic narrative being pushed onto us.
the religion in question could technically be Christianity.
But I know full well that the 'Guido massive' will take this as a point against Islam. Although most of them tend to view all religion with disdain so they'll not be too fussy.
aye, massive cunts
Unlike you and alcxxk, I don't use the c-word any more because it's incredibly sexist.
then a load of women said it was silly not to use it, so i started using it again
In any case, I feel like it really isn't right to compare awful people to a vagina.
Get your story straight if you want equality, sisters. Right?
then on the night pulled a steelworks.
Would have got much more of the publicity he's after.
than organising the work Christmas do. Brings out the worst in everyone.
