GB News - Does anyone take it seriously?

I was prepared to give GB News a chance, all the chatter about it in the run up to its launch sounded decent. Then on the opening day was a repeated segment of the the boss, Andrew Neil and he just kept going on and on and on about how they were being different and it basically sounded like someone ...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

There’s a poster in the Sky thread that seems really defensive of any criticism against Sky. I don’t get these people. They’re corporations, they can be criticised. Part and parcel of life isn't it, you'd think they get a discount for it and usually no matter what you throw at them their answer is ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I think it's great to see Royal Mail expanding into a courier like service, it's the only way they were ever going to be able to keep going with letters in decline. Price wise though, last year I was quoted over £16 to send an old PlayStation console, yet a courier service through the Parcel2Go woul...

Re: Local Newspaper Feeds

Great topic @Andrew, this is something that has bugged me for a while, My local newspaper used to be very good, well in my opinion it was but it deteriorated when it was taken over by Johnston Press, The site is full of ads and when I view it with my phone - which these days most sites are made with...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

For the first time, I'll very happily admit that I've been struggling to cope with you know who's abusive posts on social media. You should not let abusive posts get to you, its a few words on the internet, totally worthless, Now look at the positives it can bring... If everyone says look at this a...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Crikey the 'Compact disk' signs in the bottom right photo are pinned onto some unpainted hardboard, surepy that's just not finished yet rather than some kind of retro look. I like the logo though, would be nice if they do well but it's all to easy to download albums/tracks for free these days so wil...

Re: Tommy Robinson + other big libel cases...

Tommy Robinson speaks crap 90% of the time, although he is also pretty clever, if he's bankrupt it's because he chose to be. To be fair, Robinson claims the boy attacked girls at his school and other English students, someone posted a video on Twitter that shows Robinson talking to a teacher from th...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

The problem I see is that with no distancing and no masks, we are literally letting the virus run free, we've got lots of people vaccinated which is fantastic but scientists also say that vaccines make the virus work harder to try and beat them - so it's probably only a matter of time until a new va...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

The GB News thread is amusing, The other night GB News had a guy on who was smoking live in his living room and the studios look like converted lofts, some of the wording used by the presenters is a bit erm... chavvy / Tommy Robinson style. While I agree with the idea of the channel, I expected it t...

Re: Spammy spam spam

It's sad that we have to feel the need for second sims just because of spammers, these days we have so much amazing technology yet it seems eradicating this spam is a long way off, apparently they send it to hundreds of numbers and even if they only hook one person that's a good result - so I guess...

Tried that last night and you're absolutely right, thank you :-)
