@markthomasinfo If you're pissing off the gammons then you're doing something right, and you should carry on doing it
@Peston Peston - you have just perfectly demonstrated that whenever the Tories and the media waffle on about economics and productivity and inflation, they're all talking 100% meaningless arse dribble.
@kevinsamuel @markthomasinfo The unfortunate ones are the several who didn't get the morning after pill.
@guardian Presumably the bunch of piss artists in charge of the country will have no problems getting funding
@alexandertangy @PilotTVPod Blimey - that's some bad phone-typing there... 'Agreed' and 'critics'. Not sure what a procrotic is.
@alexandertangy @PilotTVPod Agrred. What irritated me the most was that these are pro crotics and yet seem to completely lack the language needed to discuss one of the largest genres in TV!
@PilotTVPod The best animated characters are abstractions and exagerations and therefore impossible for a real actor to portray.
@PilotTVPod Re animation twattery - out of interest, do any of you enjoy visiting art galleries? If so, and if you can find an emotional connection to a painting, then I dont see why you need a flesh and blood actor rather than a drawing?
@cwalbone @jonlis1 To be fair, neither Cameron nor Johnson believed in anything other than money and power - they are just very good at lying and BS.
@secretHT1 So they'll be expecting a choice of lawyer, baseball player, illustrator, librarian, or porn star. I just hope I'd be applying for a job with people who know how to use the internet.
@pompomtom @markthomasinfo Nah. Sharpe's a proper working class lad. He'd kick the crap out of Farrage.
@markthomasinfo Gunboat nationalism dominating politics and cuts to funding for arts subjects at universities. The far-right bingo sheet just keeps on getting ticked off...
@SarahCrossan If she's into comics, she could write about the Marvel superhero Union Jack. Probably more interesting. Alternatively she could design a new flag for when Scotland leaves the union.
@PilotTVPod Re comments on Shadow and Bone. YA book publishing tends to insist that all main characters are of an age with target audience - They think that kids don't want to read about adults. Messes up some aspects of plausible world building...
@archer_rs Good luck with that. A friend of mine visiting America was asked (in all seriousness) "Do you still build castles in England?"
@rec777777 @L31415926536 @MrHarryCole @rec777777 - How much tax does an astroturfer like you have to pay?
I am fucking insulted. Especially because for the last 5 years I've been offering my time FOR FREE to help with managing their school library. Instead they set up a page of 10 YouTube links for each year group. I'll hold off giving them feedback (that they requested)...
So. My daughter's school has just unveiled its new library. Apparently the head teacher thinks it will nurture a love of reading. It's a page of YouTube links. Mostly to people reading the first chapters of books. The better ones are by the authors.
