WHERE. THE. FUCK. IS. A) The One Show B) Eastenders ……………naw, naw naw naw NAW…..this isny happening..this isney happening man. YA BASTAAAAARDS!!
My favourite Election comment of the week came from my lovely friend Rosie Conlon who is due to have her baby later this month.
” Did you catch that Cameron stalking round a maternity ward for publicity?! Urrrgh! That fucking toffy, Tory, headboy bastard would get nowhere near my baby!”
Literally couldn’t have put it better myself. Although the sad thing is, as a parent relying on things like SureStart Maternity grants (not just now, maybe later?!? Lol?) and Tax Credits which the Tory’s are going to slice into – then Cameron may as well be coming into our houses and taking food out the freezer, telling the kids they are going to have to wear their shoes that little bit longer and leaving me a wee note on the fridge telling me I’d better not think about moving up in my career or losing my job because I will be on my own if I do. Scary!
As much as Labour have pissed me off in the last 10 years (oh, where to start?) but at the end of the day they HAVE done more to help poor people than they Tories ever did. I know, I’ve benefited. Their policies have helped to buffer the effects of poverty in my life over these past few years and I will forever be grateful because now I’m on my feet and I couldn’t have done it without things like Tax Credit and SureStart (no, REALLY!).
It’s easy for people to be angry, and vote for the Conservatives but I hope people remember that the Tories are NOT interested in spending money on the poorest people, the single mothers, the out of work dads, the long-term sick, young unemployed…FORGET IT!
The truth is, I am SHITTING it that the Tories will be in Government. It doesn’t just affect me as a low-income, struggling parent. At the end of the day, I have a budding career – I’m still able to be socially mobile in society because I CAN work. I’m thinking about people like my dad who has a heart condition and can’t really work. Will they make him sit at a checkout? At 58? And my brother who has severe arthritis in his leg amongst other things…will they make him do something or risk losing his benefit? Ruining lives and health just to save money, all over the country? Sure, cost cutting is fine, getting scammers off benefits is fine but we are talking about lives being ruined to improve a bottom line.
So anyway, just remember that. Remember the YTS Scheme and don’t vote for the Tories, Scotland……and when the time comes vote for SNP and Independence so we never have to worry about those Tory Bastards ruining Scottish lives ever again!
Well, I got my phone in mid July 2009. Was super excited. I found the keyboard an absolute godsend because I do spend a lot of time emailing and texting. The email function to check Gmail, yahoo, and any other email account was also very welcomed. I also love the internet options and the option to add apps like pdf reader etc.
However, that is where my love of this phone ends. Abruptly. First of all, the signal on this phone when anywhere remote is horrific. Whilst other phones/networks have no problem – the cumbersome beast G1 says ‘no’. No signal whatsoever. VERY annoying. Second of all, the camera on the phone is AWFUL. Extremely counter-intuitive, poor quality pictures, poor sound quality on video…REALLY bad. The sound quality on calls is also terrible.
Now to the problems with this phone. The first day I got the phone I charged the battery before use, the battery area got EXTREMELY hot. Within a fortnight the phone was stone dead. I sent the phone away after getting passed about by T-Mobile (take it to a store and hand it in, get to the store the girl says “no you’re quicker asking for a pre-paid envelope!”..GREAT! Wasted journey!”). I got the phone back about 3 weeks later.
Cut to April 2010, the camera is broke, the battery life is atrocious (worse than usual) the connection to network is tetchy at BEST. The phone decides that it ‘CANNOT DETECT SIM CARD’. Brilliant! Thankfully the G1 has synced my contacts because the G1 does NOT allow syncing contacts to SIM card. This essentially means that when I transfer my SIM to another handset, I can’t have access to the new numbers.
So, I’m waiting for T-Mobile to send me out another silver envelope for me to post off to them (does anyone find them severely reluctant to tell you about this option?). That will take 3-4 weeks. Meanwhile I’m paying full price for a phone that, whilst its OLD ( LG VIEWTY) it never really let me down and was a great all-rounder (camera, video, sound, email, internet, calls, signal). Not like the G1 which I have to say is THE biggest joke since phones were invented.
I’ve asked T-Mobile that if I have to send this phone back again within warranty I am going to be looking for another handset (not a G1). The woman tried to say, oh well within contract you have to send it back as many times within that period. I said, I don’t think so – and if I DO have to do that I will be keeping that in mind when my contract comes up for renewal. If T-Mobile want to keep sending me new G1 handsets every few months until Christmas because they are total crap then that’s fine – but I wont be staying with T-Mobile if that’s the case.
Anyone had any experience of these issues? What have T-Mobile done if so? How many repairs/replacements have you had to get? Anyone get a different model of phone after all this hassle?
Don’t know what shit was going down in the office that made anycunt think I wanted to see this outfit whilst drinking my Sunday morning coffee….I don’t want to see how my licence fee is paying your overblown salary ya dick. Wear an ASDA suit like that wee sweetheart Sean Batty and we will all get alone JUST FINE. Put the A&F t-shirts away and nobody gets hurt. Ta.
I think Daniel Craig is ok as James Bond….I haven’t really “bonded” with his interpretation of the character, and I haven’t really bonded (sorry) with the new style of scripts etc.
I don’t agree with the way they dumped Pierce Brosnan because I think he was by far the best. The best all round. I don’t really bother with the old bond movies to be honest, but whenever Pierce Brosnan Bond movies are on- I watch them. They were great. The best. And Pierce Brosnan is a ride. HAHA Bet yous were wondering when I would say that.
