"So-called Islamic State" used continuously on the BBC.

It's either "Islamic State" or it's not. Call it ISIS, Daesh, ISIL or even Islamic State but please drop the "so-called".

Or simply use 'those barbaric c*nts'. Everyone will know who they mean.

Lorraine Kelly....so vociferous in her support for Scottish independendence, now getting her mug on every advert break saying "Hi, I'm Team GB" whilst promoting some upcoming national sports day. Hypocritical cow.

Cyclists that insist on using the road and creating tailbacks, when there is a purpose built cycle path 6 ******* inches away.

Germans French and Aussies moaning about Brits winning. Who knew:rolleyes:
Anna Mears is past it anyway she didn't do any good against non GB riders. I wonder if the cycling team in the UK get talked up like the Ausssie swimming team do before every Olympics. Inquest on again as to why they did not win what they said. Like I said bronze is the new gold.

I'm getting heartily fed up with LinkedIn, which back in the day was a very dry but reliable business networking forum which served a purpose.

Now you can't move for trite management speak slogans like the Richard Branson one I must have seen a hundred times now - 'train people well enough that they can leave, treat them well enough that they don't want to' - with idiots making chin-stroking comments underneath.

And people who elect to post that they have bagged a top job / won sales manager of the year / been awarded an MBE, and remark underneath how 'proud and humbled' this makes them feel. Not that ******* humble, you've just boasted about it on the World Wide Web.

Couldn't agree more. Add to that recruitment agents who add you just so they can get their number of contacts up but then when you actually approach them with a CV give you radio silence.

Well said.

I like Laura Trott. Find her very down to earth. And what an athlete.

The woman on the train to Eastbourne who stood there tutting, huffing and saying loudly enough so everyone within 10 feet could hear what a disgrace it was that all the seats were taken, how selfish and inconsiderate people were for taking up seats when there were others who needed them.
1) I was on the train before you were.
2) There was nothing wrong with you.
3) Without standing up and looking down the aisle how the **** was I to know it was your mother who actually needed the seat?
If you want me to move just ask. Something along the lines of "Excuse me, my Mum isn't steady on her feet, would you mind giving up your seat for her?" would be perfectly acceptable rather than standing there effectively telling everyone what a **** I am for daring to sit down. I'm not a ******* mind reader, I haven't got 360 degree vision so I might no be aware someone needs the seat. Just ******* ask. And don't keep ******* looking daggers at me after I give my seat up and have to stand for an hour.

But, more importantly, Payroll Bellend doesn't like her accent.
