    Charger’s Vax Facts ™ # 35

    The United Kingdom has recorded record numbers of Covid-19 vaccinations for the 5th day in a row.

    491,970 people received vaccines in the 24-hour period up to 4pm yesterday with the overall total now standing at 6,822,981.

    And in embarrassing news for Napoleon Macron, Blighty has given out more Covid jabs in three days than France during the entire pandemic.

    Ireland’s official total of 121,900 has now remained unchanged for a fifth day.

    Meanwhile, the shift-the-blame game has started over the EU’s dismal vaccines failure.

      You absolute clown of a person. Here’s some figures Admiral Nelson would be proud of, you know what I mean old sport. After todays figures, the UK has the 5th highest death rate per million population out of 221 countries listed. Something to be proud of old boy. Ireland currently 46th highest. UK rate is around 2 and a half times that in Ireland.
      97,939 deaths in the UK from the virus. A shocking statistic. Something Bozo should be proud of?

      1. Joe F

        So the UK has nearly 100,000 deaths from the virus. What a shocking statistic and shame on Bozo et al. You keep bleating on about how well the UK is doing. Yeah it’s doing really well Admiral!!!!! 5th highest out of 221 countries for deaths per million. Another few days and 100,000 deaths will have been reached and probably UK will be in top 3. Pretty damning indictment of how UK leadership has handled the pandemic. Ireland currently 46th on list of countries. UK death rate from virus currently approximately 2.5 times Irish rate.
        Admiral Nelson would be very proud of Bozo’s job.

      2. Charger Salmons

        Some more good news about Covid-19 from the UK.
        Michael Adebowale, who was jailed for 45 years for the cowardly killing of unarmed Private Lee Rigby is in a prison hospital where a source said; “He is in a very bad way and fighting for every breath.” I’m not a supporter of capital punishment but his early death from this virus would save the prison system a considerable amount of money.
        Oh dear.
        How sad.
        Never mind.

        1. Joe F

          Why is it that you never post anything negative or bad news about the UK Admiral? Does the deaths of almost 100,000 people in the UK not concern you? It seems that if the Tories are 1% ahead of Labour this is more important to you clown man.
          By the way I had a friend who told me once that it is OK to talk to yourself from time to time. However, he said that when you start replying back to yourself is when you should start worrying. Bit like what you are doing here Admiral Nelson, would you agree? Not great when you have to create (yet another) identity to reply to yourself.

          1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            Joe I’m really sorry but your frustrated replies are almost as irritating as his useless posts, do yourself a favor and walk away, it’s just not worth it

          2. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            remove the audience, if a kid is having a meltdown for attention I just shut the door until they get bored and have a nice cup of tea

      1. Joe F

        Any chance of you commenting on the fact that the UK is 5th highest out of 221 countries for deaths per million population Admiral? Ireland 46th by the way.
        Or that almost 100,000 deaths in UK from virus Mr Nelson?

    2. Charger Salmons

      UK Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has been forced to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
      This is the THIRD time Sir Kneelalot has had to do this which is a little ironic considering he has been so critical of the efficacy of the government’s test and trace service.

      1. Joe F

        Hey clown man, funny how you don’t mention the fact that the leader of the Tories in Wales was forced to resign in the last few days. You’re just showing again what a clown you are, i.e. the Tories can do no wrong, you’re not capable of posting anything negative about them, or the UK in general.
        Well done Admiral.

  2. Formerly known as @ireland.com

    Mandatory quarantine for all arrivals. That is what is needed. A negative test before travelling is better than nothing but not enough. Stop the virus arriving and life can get closer to normal. Aus and NZ have done it. Work with Arlene/Bozo to have a coordinated approach.

    1. Cian

      If the problem is people travelling bringing COVID into Ireland. If the problem is community transmission (which we currently have) it is less of an issue.

      1. Formerly known as @ireland.com

        You need both – the lockdown slows community transmission. You need to get it to a point where it is possible to track and trace. Ireland could have done that in July last year. It opened up instead of tightening control.

    2. Charger Salmons

      What about the hundreds of lorry drivers that arrive in Ireland every day via the mainland from countries all over Europe cobber ?
      It’s easy to isolate an island thousands of miles from anywhere but less so when the island depends for its survival on imports and exports with very close neighbours.

        1. Charger Salmons

          What about a truck from Romania which has travelled through Europe and across the landbridge and then onto Ireland and vice versa ?
          How about a truck from here taking Irish just-in-time produce to Europe ?
          A separate driver in Dublin, Holyhead,Dover & Calais ?

        2. GiggidyGoo

          No need to formerly.

          Systems already in place. Send trailer out unaccompanied. Picked up in Holyhead. Driven to Dover, Harwich or wherever. UK driver drops the trailer, picks up an incoming one, returns to Manchester/Liverpool area. The trailer goes unaccompanied to France or Holland or Belgium. Can be picked up locally then and delivered…or….can be put on a train (Intermodal) and send onwards that way. There are quite elaborate, yet in some ways, very simple systems set up already. In fact, you could bring a container to Holland, Belgium or Germany, shove it on a train, and it’s in…..China…….in 16-17 days of you want. Or any country in between. Silk Road.

      1. GiggidyGoo

        The ‘Mainland’ just happens to be Europe these days.
        The isolation happening at the moment is England. Ferries almost queuing up now to provide direct services to and from Europe. Landbridge is losing its luster.
        Holyhead and Fishguard could find themselves in deep doo doo. Pembroke and Liverpool will survive because they have other marine-related industries to supplement their ferry operations.

      1. Cú Chulainn

        Totes.. quite enough.. I understand sites like BS have to reinvent themselves.. but.. enough.. may the next cycle enjoy the oanastic pleasure that only charger can bring…

        1. Cú Chulainn

          That said.. in the absence of psycho gulls, killer rats, kinky aliens… Holly Willoughby is back on the front page of the Star… thanks all..

          1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            have you heard of the virus sweeping through the dog population of north Dublin, particularly around St Anne’s park Raheny and North Bull Wall, it’s very serious, needs urgent attention and shots if your dog gets the runs get it checked

          2. millie bobby brownie

            Really? I have an aunt who lives out that way. Must say it to her. She frequently walks her dog in St Anne’s.

          3. Micko

            Interesting, my mates two dogs were sick a couple of weeks back. He’s always in St Anne’s with them.

            He thought they must have eaten something dodgy.

            They’re ok now though.

      2. Charlie

        Totally. The site has become a Charger bore. It’s Groundhog Day. Surely I’m not the only one who cannot understand Broadsheets tolerance of this guy’s tourettelike posts and pathetic agenda?

  3. Otis Blue

    The Examiner front page tells of the sale of the Lissard Estate in Skibbereen. The Estate has a very interesting story which spans the Cold War, the Swiss Government, a charitable trust with Michael Stipe and Helena Christensen as patrons, a ‘Sky Garden’ and in more recent times, a boutique music festival. The headstone of the late Fred ‘Sonic’ Smith of celebrated Detroit 60’s noiseniks MC5 and husband of Patti Smith comes from the estate.

    It’s Cold War connections are recounted here


  4. Gerry

    Here’s my tuppence worth (that’s all it’s worth probably)
    I want Broadsheet to ban Charger Salmons
    He constantly posts repetitive drivel, never engages in discussion, and fills his posts with dismissive comments about Irish people — his sole intention is to troll, see yesterday:

    “He should have just followed my lead and instigated a Chump’s Corner where I imprison all the tiresome, unoriginal and dull posters in much the way you would ignore dullards and oafs in real life.
    Then sit back and watch them compete for your attention like unwanted runts in a litter.
    A couple of them have driven themselves demented – posting up to 15 replies a day to my erudite and witty posts begging for some sign of recognition.
    It’s been going on for months and it’s hilarious.
    They never ever get the hint and it’s very amusing.”

    I will admit that I have responded to this pillock, no more.

    If you don’t ban him (as I expect you won’t) then I am leaving.

    Goodbye and best wishes to all the decent posters who engage with questions and act in good faith.

    1. dav

      @Gerry not disagreeing with the sentiment – but HOW does Broadsheet ban that person or for that matter, any person? a deletion of a broadsheet “Account” does not seem possible or practical.

      1. GiggidyGoo

        Maybe only activate accounts that provide a phone number that can act as a verification……text to phone, reply to verify. Once banned, then whoever is banned would have to get a new phone number.
        No point in doing it based on throwaway email addresses, or even non-existent ones. ( There was an example last year of a winner of Nicks voucher, whose email address didn’t exist, and who told Bodger to give the voucher to someone else).

        If you used such a system, then you might find a lot of, ahem, multi-identity posters disappearing.

        1. dav

          I’m not technically literate when it comes to web design but I suspect such authentication might require a completely new website/back end.

          1. goldenbrown

            I like Broadsheet because:

            learning about some granular intel on what our Govt. State and local Administrations are playing at and the exposure of nefarious activities by those participating in and supporting it (the stuff that journalists in the mainstream media sadly wouldn’t touch for fear of their career path)

            chats and argument about same – even if you trenchantly believe in some angle hearing from people with other opinions is important in forming your own. I’ve definitely learned a thing or two here.

            the many irreverent features and internet nuggets are very enjoyable

            but going back to those chats and arguments for a minute….this is where the Broadsheet UI stinks…

            in it’s current form it enables chatbots like this faux British Empire expat character to spam the conversation threads effectively killing off the interest I had in that aspect, spam spam spam, too much of it to wade thru!

            on something as open and free as this platform I reckon banning individuals couldn’t work but I’d suggest if there’s any way to make it happen that the UI needs a rework to allow users who are tired of that spam to at least be able to MUTE it selectively for themselves

          2. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            it’s almost as if someone had a vested interest in turning you against a media outlet in Ireland that isn’t a government mouthpiece ;)

        2. Joe F

          I think a lot of people would be on the same wavelength as you GiggidyGoo!!
          I particularly agree with your last sentiment. Charage has many identities, just after finding out another one he had, Admiral Nelson!
          I strongly suspect that he has more than Charger Salmons on the go on this website.

      2. Cian

        Simple answer. Stop replying to his posts.
        If everyone ignored him he will get bored (and ‘Kate’ may disappear too! – double bonus).

        1. Rob_G

          100% agree.

          He is the textbook definition of a troll – he even used to call himself ‘Ollie Cromwell’, for crissakes. Anyone who engages with a person posting in such bad faith is only enabling them.

    2. paul

      If they defended the rubbish they post on the Papers I’d be all for them staying. I would disagree with them on more-or-less everything but discussion is a large part of this site so if they can’t stand up for what they copy and paste on here, then perhaps they have no place.

    3. Sam

      You want censorship, just don’t read his posts his names right there at the top. You’re an adult get over yourself – stop the poor me I had to read a post from someone I think is a nonce. Good lord all the whinging over this is more painful to listen to.

      1. Gerry

        You have a point, I’m not denying that, but I argue the following:

        It’s not censorship when a publisher tells me they don’t want my novel, similarly broadsheet can restrict speech as it likes.

        I’m no Sinn Feiner or Charlie Catholic (for example), but when posters of those viewpoints comment, they largely do so:
        1. In relation to the events of the day, the newspapers or the tv news
        2. They engage with alternative points of view

        Anyway, I think he should be banned, it’s not my site or my decision, but that’s what I think.

      2. Micko

        +1 Sam. Don’t like it, then don’t read it.

        In fairness, yes Charger obviously does wind people up. But, he also makes some very good points.

        His point about SOQ the other day sparked a lot of debate.

      3. Charlie

        Stick around Sam and you’ll understand people’s frustrations. Half people’s time is spent attempting to avoid his arrogance. His bile is littered throughout the site and it’s often the first post of the day. He has f-all to contribute but hate. Don’t be fooled and confuse it with ‘bantz’. I’m all for free speech etc and I’m one of the least patriotic people you’ll meet but this guy is pure hate and arrogance to the core. It’s easy to say “don’t read” but it’s like trying to avoid cow poo in a farmyard. Send him to the abattoir. Sam, Do come back again and visit the soon to be rebranded site Broadcharger.ie

    4. VAnon ™

      I don’t agree with Banning
      Nor do I think t’would work anyway

      there’s loads of remaining logins already established by the user
      and nothing to stop the creation of more anyway, exactly the same since day one

      besides this gaff would have general sympathies with a fair bit of his content ie Brexit, Trump etc

      I do take serious objection to his harassment to women and other innocent private individuals
      If he wants to do it out loud and proud, fair enough own it, put your name and face to it
      But doing it anonymously is virtual thuggery, dark alley assault stuff
      And that’s what Broadsheet cooperate with by leaving those posts up
      But there’s form there I suppose, so we can’t pretend its not part of the give and take, go with flow etc of Broadsheet
      Tis the internet remember

      However, it must also be said, Charage, and all this Wardens, Lords etc
      is no where near as vindictive conniving or malicious
      Or sly, creepy, lurking n’ stalking
      Or even indiscreet about any one of us
      as the Lad yere all crying about now
      Funny that,

      Although they do have a lot in common
      Around here btw, but shur ye can dig all that out for yerselves

      Maybe you should have stayed off that Telly post there last week Charage
      ( ̄﹃ ̄)

      1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

        I’m curious V, you always sort of hint vaguely at SOQ has done something to you, do you mind me asking what you accuse him of ?

        1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

          I remember you saying someone got very personal attacking you outside of this forum , surly if you knew who they were BS would ban them and if not why not,
          I’m asking this in the wider context a little of the whole their gaff their rules

          1. Charger Salmons

            I’m not being funny or anything but V once had a got at me on here complaining I’d verbally attacked her somewhere else as well.
            I’ve never met the woman and never conversed with her online before discovering the glories of Broadsheet.
            I think she must have just confused me with someone else.
            I pointed this out but there was no apology.

          2. VAnon ™

            ah now Charage
            You’re no stranger to Irish Forums
            So don’t be doing the Whipping Boy here
            but if you’d like a licky slicky gushy apology sure, have one
            I am sorry I hurt your feelings Charage. It must be hard being you as it is, without me loading in on you. So for that I apologise for all the times I acted like so many else around here.
            Sorry Charage.

            btw, Janie
            Yep, on Twitter/ facebook etc, number of occasions
            like the one you and I talked about that night in Keohes
            Which, now as it turns out, that lad mistook @frillykeane at the time for someone else entirely, but all those tweets, like the Broadsheet troll dog and calling me an Ethno Nationalist etc, were never taken back or apologised for, From any of the parties

            Then a far more damaging series, followed, after that BS.tv
            but Bog Lawyer stepped up and got them taken down

            None of them were ever banned from Broadsheet
            In fact tis Frilly Keane is the one who got cancelled

        2. VAnon ™

          Well there’s the doxxing
          all the personal remarks – which is ok, people aren’t a bit shy about approaching and having stuff to say, or posting stuff into the chat pit
          but it does show him for the bitter simpleton he is
          but I know if you or I said the same about a him
          Or a few other Broadsheet Patriots
          we’d take a hiding, and you know it

          Then there’s all the lies he knew were lies, but he posted them anyway, repeatedly
          Like me moderating, and falsely allocating me other login names
          and then getting others to repeat them, again and again
          that’s collusion, organised, enabled, bullying in fact

          I wouldn’t trust him, he changes his genre and tune and colours far too many times
          that’s fine, this is the internet, and like I’m not about to lend him money
          but he participated in doxxings, not just mine
          He has expressed views about immigration that establish a solid racist natural instinct
          that he then pretends to hide behind some gaudy expertise in Brazilian men
          He cannot be trusted, you never know what he’s lurking under, or who for, and he’s far to indiscreet with people’s privacy- and definitely never click through on any link he posts

        3. Junkface

          Did his world fall apart after the whole Jan 6th Qanon implosion? “We trusted the plan, I thought Trump would have freed all of the children from Bill Gates Temple of Doom by now?”

  5. Birdie

    Happy Monday everyone!

    Icy out there so be careful but a beautiful sun rise too.

    Hope you grasp on to something positive each day during these taxing times.

    1. Charger Salmons

      Marvellous sentiment Birdie – it was indeed a moody multi-coloured dawn this morning when I got up early to make a pot of java and watch the cricket from Sri Lanka.
      Truth be told Lady Charger and I are having a pretty decent lockdown but others we know are finding it hard.
      We offer support and solace as much as we can.
      But it’s important we all try to get through these short, dark winter days with as much positivity as we can muster.
      Good luck out there.

      1. Charger Salmons

        I always think of Rudyard Kipling on glorious mornings like this.

        ‘ On the road to Mandalay where the flyin’ fishes play
        And the dawn comes up like thunder out of China ‘cross the bay ‘

        1. Brother Barnabas

          no surprise you’re a fan of kipling, charger – another nasty and misogynistic racist

      2. Joe F

        Here is something you wrote earlier Mr Nelson “But it’s important we all try to get through these short, dark winter days with as much positivity as we can muster.”
        Positivity? Toi?

  6. Charger Salmons

    I don’t normally respond to nonsense like this but seeing as I’m in a good mood I’ll just put this out there.
    There are some people on here who spend day in day out replying abusively to every post I make and never addressing any of the issues I raise.
    The fact that I fail to respond to such juvenility is infuriating them so much they’re now demanding I get banned.
    I’ll give Chump’s Corner a tip.Stop wasting your time and energy and use it more productively.

    1. scottser

      while in the past you were an obvious liar and a hypocrite, your schtick now is to bombard the site and turn the narrative around so that the conversation is about you. your vanity is boring the tits off us but by all means keep it up – i reckon this must reach some form of critical mass soon.

  7. Joe F

    Hey clown man. Your hero Bozo doing a mighty job. UK fifth highest out of 221 countries for deaths per million population. Something Admiral Nelson would be proud of? Have you heard of him?????

  8. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

    anyway in other news, I’m away to my wee mammy, I have cobbled together a wee treat for her, hope it tastes authentic,

    Happy Burns night

    Address to a Haggis

    Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
    Great chieftain o the puddin’-race!
    Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
    Painch, tripe, or thairm:
    Weel are ye wordy o’ a grace
    As lang’s my arm.

    The groaning trencher there ye fill,
    Your hurdies like a distant hill,
    Your pin wad help to mend a mill
    In time o need,
    While thro your pores the dews distil
    Like amber bead.

    His knife see rustic Labour dight,
    An cut you up wi ready slight,
    Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
    Like onie ditch;
    And then, O what a glorious sight,
    Warm-reekin, rich!

    1. scottser

      myself and the missis had a break in glasgow before all this nonsense and i had haggis neeps and tatties for dinner there. it’s all very soft like baby food – it’s like scottish people don’t like to chew anything. who needs teeth, eh?

        1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

          disclaimer I happily got my Dad’s genetics on the Donegal nashers department…envy of many a cousin across the water.. hahaha

          1. Rosette of Sirius

            Believe it not not, Never have I ever had, and – apparently – will never need a filling.

            So says my dentist who thinks of my gnashers as a mutated form of genetics. Not possible, he says every time I visit him and he reviews my X-rays. Perhaps I was born half vampire or werewolf.

          2. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            I bit my dentist once, he jokingly told me not to tell anyone where …hajaj the inuendo of a dentist in France

          3. GiggidyGoo

            Hey, Rosette – are you on for swapping some of them? My mouth is like a bombed out graveyard. Could do with some new shiny white headstones.

    2. GiggidyGoo

      Spent a few days in a MacDonalds Hotel Forest Hills, just north of Glasgow a while ago
      and one evening they had haggis and neeps night. I believe there was a poem recited named
      ‘Hail To The Haggis’ when it was being presented.

        1. GiggidyGoo

          Piper in the yard playing The Irish Washerwoman one evening. The extra mile eh?
          Lovely hotel and setting. Then again, the Scots always have been a nationality I always liked.
          Went up to one of the Highland games 2 years ago. That was some trek on basically ‘b’ roads almost, and a fantastic day. I’d recommend it. Pipers competing, walking in a 12’ square and being judged not only on their playing, but the emotion they put into it. Everywhere you looked…woods and all, pipers practicing. It was actually like a big swarm of bees, but sounding like drones. Actually, there are drones in beehives come to think of it. Tossing the Caber. Highland dancers. Pheckkin fantastic – and I’ll go again.

          1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            ah brilliant ! glad you had a blast, one of my Uncle’s is a piper, it’s an acquired taste ;)

          2. GiggidyGoo

            I tune into BBC Alba very regularly. The mix of Pipe and rock can be enthralling – so long as the sound engineer balances it properly. Also the Transatlantic Sessions are great. BBL Alba again, but you’ll get them on youtube.

  9. SB

    How many comments today were by Charger or responding to him? How many of these actually related to the newspapers? Pointless reading all this crap.

    1. Charger Salmons

      Including yours there have been 62 posts so far on here today and 27, nearly half of them, have been solely about why I should be either banned or ignored.
      Not a single one of them has mentioned the subject I posted about – vaccines.
      There’s stupid.
      Then there’s really stupid.

      1. millie bobby brownie

        And then there’s you, my dear.

        (sorry, but when you leave it wide open like that, you really are asking for it #bantz

        1. Charger Salmons

          Don’t apologise Millie.I’ve got my big boy pants on so quite happy to accept a bit of incoming bantz without squealing like a stuck pig.
          Just a shame a few others don’t try good-humoured ribbing instead of personal abuse.
          Of course we all know it’s barely-disguised Anglo-xenophobia.

            Better get used to it Admiral Nelson. What happened to him/you anyway? Don’t see any posts from him on you know where this long time. Keep posting your nonsense and I’ll just keep replying.
            PS Please do try and spell check, I know you’re not a natural at it but MS Word does have built-in spelling and grammar.

            “Anglo-xenophobia”, you really give me a good laugh Admiral.
            I have many good English friends, some for quite a few years. But they’re not like you, with blinkers on. I really didn’t realize you were so sensitive old boy.

            …don’t talk to me about barely-disguised xenophobia…still haven’t recovered from the revelation that brits like being called brits…

      2. Broadbag

        It’s completely unfair how he’s picked on, it’s bullying plain and simple, just because you might fervently disagree with him doesn’t mean it’s okay to attack every post he makes with name calling and abuse, this sort of behaviour shouldn’t be happening amongst adults (unless in reply to a Kevin Higgins poem, he fully deserves it!).

        Just ignore him if he riles ye up so much, there’s one poster in particular who seems completely obsessed with him bordering on cyber stalking, foaming at the mouth/keyboard to get the first reply and shout ”clown man” at him every night in the papers, really odd.

      De Papers has always been an canteen gossip / water cooler location
      Especially at weekends
      And in fairness, some days they’d look like the afterwards of an Electric Picnic campsite

      But yeah, it used to be mainly news of the day in the comments, but that all changed, you can guess when etc

      In fairness Eoin did a lot of work trying to bring more news discussions into the thread
      lately we’ve been using it for Bake’Sheet stuff as well, which used to be great fun one time as a stand alone

      Its just the way the forum has been steered and geared up for now

      Pretty much anything I have to say these days I just lob it all into the comments

      Still as day 1 here

      If he “debated” instead of putting up his blatantly biased unbalanced posts about Bozo and the UK I wouldn’t reply. If he keeps posting his nonsense, I’ll keep replying!

        Just an idea…

        Why doesn’t BS give Charger a weekly column to set forth his views in the manner of Dan Boyle, Derek Mooney and others? Then, those that wish to engage with or ignore him can do so at will.

        One way or another there’ll always be a corner of BS that’s forever Charger.

        1. scottser

          so all you have to do to get a column on here is post lies and hypocricies, abuse other commenters and troll the site generally?
          makes sense.

    …last time I saw Charger get this much attention he was on one of his periodic absences…most of the same people commenting then…

    1. Charger Salmons

      I never bother posting from a hammock in sunnier climes because I generally have better things to do such as catch the waiter’s attention.
      But the wailing and crying from the same idiots on here today demanding I be banned is something to behold.
      Including the feller last week who posted that all the shouting and arguing on Eastenders and Corrie was an indication of how Blighty was in a mess after Brexit.
      Man, I nearly spillled my wine reading that.

        When one of the dancing monkeys is flinging poo at the other customers, it’s no longer entertainment.
        It’s just a poo pub.
        They’re quick enough to change it to pooopy doop.
        Just not prepared to turf a bum out on the street.
        Their gaffe, his stools.

    You walk into a nice bar for a pint and a chat with some friends and one patron is defecating openly on the floor, screaming and insulting everybody and everything.
    The barman does nothing.
    The Broadsheet arms, ladies and gentlemen.

    There’s a glaring lack of input from the moderators on this, and it doesn’t reflect well on how they run their pub. Especially when the patron in question has been kicked out of every other pub for the same reason.
    Their gaffe, their rules.

    1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

      maybe the barman isn’t getting paid enough so they hit the whiskey and finds the chaos entertaining…dance monkeys ( if that sounds anecdotal that’s pure coincidence ;))

      1. Charger Salmons

        The barman will certainly know the person defecating is making a gaffe in their gaff.
        Their gaff, their rules™

    A belated happy birthday to Peter Tatchell, an LGBT stalwart long before it became fashionable and, together with Tony Benn, one of the great champions of the underdog in British politics for the past 40 or so years.
    Always polite and charming but insistent and brave as hell.Read up about the day he confronted Robert Mugabe and his henchmen in London to see what real political activism is all about.
