    Maybe that's a pun on bringing something back (i.e reversing the change) as I'm pretty sure they're going to know which way around it goes.

    I've signed the petition anyway. Fuck these endless shitty cash sucking franchises that usually end up with the people at the top trousering large wages irrespective of performance.

    Well, that doesn't make any sense, as it's not BR that they want to reverse, but privatisation.

    I have no problem understanding their clearly written out aims:

    Oh, I saw an actual road sign pointing to a station that had the BR logo mirrored the other day. Now where was it? >_<

    I saw one this morning in Nottinghamshire. There are quite a few of them about.

    I suspect the "bring back british rail" campaign is a false flag operation by the EU and their real aim is to continentalise our railways and make us run our British Trains their way (ie. the wrong way) around, on the right hand side instead of the left hand side. This is all part of a ploy to redesign our whole country to suit foreigners and not hard working British family commuters and holidaymakers. Thank goodness we now have some commonsense politicians over there to fight against this madness.

    Crispy I think there is one somewhere in south london and now I am going to be tormented by my attempts to remember where for the rest of the day, damn you :mad:

    If it helps, I think I saw it while driving between Clapham Park and Dulwich.

    Maybe.

    Ah, bugger, if I'd seen this in time/ not been at work until some stupid hour that night, I'd have been up for that. Hope all had fun.

    I shouted at a jogger today. They got exasperated with me as they had to stop mid-jog while I moved slowly from the pavement into the bus. I think she expected me to deftly manoeuvre my pushchair out of her way but I was very sleep deprived and was not feeling nifty. Instead I shouted 'Oh for god's sake, that's so rude!' at her, she did look quite shocked. Take that gentrification.

    boohoo No.

    The jogger nagapie mentioned is female. I think you'll find leanderman is male - the name gives it away. :rolleyes:

    Yes.

    It's going to be a two tiered thing. The football is on at 5pm so we need somewhere showing that, then we can either try somewhere else or go to the Effra Social again.

    People not interested in the football can turn up about 7pm.

    I've already booked a half-day off work.

    This is the murky world of the internet. Someone swears blind they're a middle aged, married man, convinces you to meet up with them - turns out they were a 16 year old girl all along! :eek:

    Happens all the time.

    I got shouted at* while out jogging this morning, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't by you ;)

    *it was more of a leer than a shout tbf, so definitely not you
     
  24. boohoo

    boohoo No.

    Leery shouting put me off jogging. Having said that, last time I went to the rec, we came across the pool pervert who was watching the ladies doing the water aerobics. He had goggles on and kept dipping under the water.

    Which one is least worst? Shouty leerer or silent watcher.

    I don't think I've ever leeringly shouted but I have definitely looked before. Glanced though, not stared. Honest.
     
  28. boohoo

    boohoo No.

    The shouty ones - ignorance is bliss (?) However pool perv was only there to watch the women - he wasn't subtle. Although I doubt the ladies exercising were aware of him.

    I pretty much ignore it tbh. I always wonder what the success rate is- has anyone ever actually got their tits out when invited to by some random in the street?
