The Short Strand is probably the worst. Like an loose angle grinder bouncing down concrete

And I'm getting yet more North Korean vibes from that pile of shite ad that implies everything's alright now because...bloody McDonalds deliveries. Yay! We made it through to the other side! :roll:

The North Korean vibes are also coming from the government.

Get out there ! The second wave is depending on you !

You fat bastards ! Get yourselves thin and stand a chance of surviving the Coronavirus !

We'll be properly out the EU soon! Get yourselves ready ! 'Cos we fucking aren't !

Our street kommissar has informed us that we have volunteered to do calisthenics outside our houses every Thursday at 8pm.

All the Ocado drivers have been sent for re-education.

Any for on line gambling. They make out that it's being one of the lads and a bit of fun, but it's creating addiction and they are a shower of shit. Addicts don't know when to stop, it's like an alcoholic putting his booze away in a cupboard and saying "I've had enough for a while, I'll save this for next week and be sensible" it doesn't happen.

Also, they can work out where you live from your postcode, so if they are regular losses from someone in a poor area they must know the misery that it must be heaping misery on the wife and kids. Gambling is a total mugs game and it's just a way of cunts hoovering money out of the pockets of, frequently, less well off people and if I was supreme leader I would legislate it more or less out of existence.

I've seen first hand what can happen when gambling gets out of hand.

Mercifully, no long-term damage was done.

I gamble a bit. Not excessively, and nowhere even close to what I used to, and even at that, I'd cheerfully outlaw advertising for it, and set the bar a lot higher for online gambling. Forbidding credit card payments into accounts is a good start, but it's not enough

Online bingo on the other hand, is pure, unadulterated evil. It needs to die as soon as possible.

Read James O'Brien on fixed odds betting terminals.

In 2018 it was agreed to limit the stakes on such things to £2 (rather than £100). The gambling industry agreed, but delayed the change. Now, I'm pointing no fingers, but Davies, McVey, Handcock...

I believe one such company sponsors a lot of Channel 5's soaps.

I've seen the ads, and even through that lens it looks like an utterly empty soulless experience.

And you can take your pearl-clutching, sensibilities maintained, mispronounced pile ointment and stick it up your annyoos.

Well...I wince every time I hear how that woman says "Anusol". Which, being at the mecrcy of Talking Pictures' target demographic, is far too often.
