Agree on the second point.

The Honours List.
We dont have an Empire anymore so the whole process is a joke.

Mark Roe...............his Rory worship is OTT to say the least. Yes Rory is very good (boy doesnt he know it) and will win many majors but Roe acts like he is the GOAT!!

The Witch Hunt against Lance Armstrong - All cyclists seem to dope so leave him alone his cancer work is too important to rehash old news.
If they do the pathetic thing and strip him of his titles they should just be vacated as many times he won a known doper was the runner up.

[QUOTE=Titletown USA;1591361]The Honours List.

First we had an empire that was run by an emperor. Then we had a kingdom that was run by a king. Now we've got a country...

Apologies to anyone who is into sailing but what really irks me is when these round the world sailors get awarded MBE's or higher. I just don't see what's so fantastic about doing that.

I think all these ladbrokes adverts are starting to grind my gears.

No I dont want to see Chris Kamara advertising a sports drink

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RidJgQacZU the KO was cool though

Edit- Italian football commentator Tiziano Crudeli is the bloke who seems quite "passionate" about football betting

People who stand outside hospitals smoking whilst attached to drips, nearly always right next to a NO SMOKING sign and accompanied by ashen faced , lonsdale clad* neer do
wells. What happened to the policy where the NHS was going to refuse treatment on folks who didn't make the effort to quit.
This rant coming from a fool who has smoked for 30 years or more.

* I have nothing against budget clothing, on the contrary I think it foolish to spend
big money on a t-shirt because it says Hollister on it - peer preasure also grinds my gears!

Also , despite having always voted Labour, I am getting more and more conservative in my
old age and have a daily mail outlook on many things in life.
It hasn't and ,hopefully never will get to the stage where I would fully jump to the dark
side but these thoughts do make me feel a little grubby.

Today I have been mostly angry at people in cars. Roundabout at the end of the road I work on has two lanes, left goes straight on only and right goes around to the right and over a bridge. Traffic was queueing this morning in the left lane due to lights just after the roundabout and I counted 3 morons who flew down the right and then tried to cut in and beeped and waved their arms when people didn't let them in.

Idiots.
