  1. Well they stopped pigeon shooting completely for a while and it is only back until a new set of rules can be drawn up with the input of said group. Now it's game rearing/shooting and make no mistake the outcome of this will be loads of nearly unworkable regulations put in place. And let's not forget one of his favourite gripes grouse shooting. They are already walking all over us and the shooting world.

    I wonder how many times hamster has dreamt of this. 🤣
  3. If you do not have a receiver then you have no reason to purchase a license. If I had a monitor that could not accept live transmissions then I could watch TV programmes recorded onto tape or disc from someone else's TV. If I don't need to buy a license why is it called TV license.
  4. Skeet is a great discipline for covering the angles. I take it that those who find it boring are hitting straights every round they do and can't miss one even if they close their eyes. It takes a massive amount of concentration to shoot a straight 100 or close to it. Another reason I find people say it's boring is because they can't hit them. I shoot skeet several times a month but have never found it boring. I like esp also but will say I have been bored with the targets at some grounds as they were rediculously easy.
  5. How does the BBC get around the monopolies commission with this. No other business could do it. We have to pay a fee to own a receiver yet out of all the broadcasters bbc is the only one that gets paid.

    Oh well that's OK then. Let's all just give her a pat on the back and say we'll done. She is not an idiot she knew full well what she was saying and if programme was recorded she had ample time to ask that the clip be removed the same as the BBC had but neither did. It's incitement of hate crime.
  7. Trucks insured with nfu also trailers. Not the cheapest by far but they don't mess you around when a claim goes in

    Correct. But remember the people who filled his club in those days of all types had something that is sadly lacking these days. A SENSE OF HUMOUR.

    Nothing funny about acid on skin.

    Not just out there. As it seems there are some on here who follow her.

    If comedy can only survive around human suffering and violence then we are better off without it. Ali g was never funny to my mind. And I assume that you were not a fan either or you would not have put him forward in your response. I have been trying to think of any of the comedians from years ago that used to try and get a laugh from inciting violence and frankly can't think of one.

    Maybe she will visit the burns units of some of our hospitals. She could witness the horror of acid on humans. Then she might see just how poor taste it is to even try and joke about the subject. There is nothing remotely funny about dis figuring people. A truly pathetic and childish statement. The reason is that statements such as hers are totally unacceptable regardless of who it is said of.

    No not the then and now. We live in the now. If a comedian was to make jokes about black people. The Irish etc they would be branded racist. If they also think its OK to try and get a cheap laugh by advocating serious criminal acts against people then that should also bring reprocussions. I would like to be able to say she is just another has been trying to gain a bit of cheap publicity but am afraid she has never been in the first place.

    Bernard was around in a different time when the sensetive little lovelies of today were not around. Indeed nearly all comedians of that era told stories/jokes about colour. Religion. Nationality. Sexuality. And it was funny. However with the current ethics attitude it is not acceptable to condone the throwing of anything least of all acid at someone. She cannot hide behind supposedly being a comedienne and no she is not expected to come out with extremist garbage like this. I have never found her funny in any way. But that also goes for most of the so called alternative comedians we have today. She should suffer the consequences of her stupidity the same as anyone else.

    Well just another example of how the BBC is totally unbiased. Danny Baker made a joke. Ross and brand pulled a prank on radio and were sacked. If she had said it about Mrs May or one of the royals I doubt her feet would have touched.
