    ....with Jeremy Paxman. For some reason, he reminds me quite strongly of

    Never seen Champ cry, though.

  5. There was a similar thing happened in the Shetlands. Social workers
    turned up and took all the sheep into care.

    I don't think his cosy existence prepared him for discovering his rellies a
    hundred years back were dying of starvation and TB in the slums of Glasgow.

  7. It's a middle-class thing. Just a few generations back (more recently in
    many cases) most of our ancestors were fairly unremarkable, doing
    perfectly ordinary jobs in the cities (shoveling shit) or the farms
    (shoveling shit).

  8. Aim for the groin, it works every time.

  9. I watched that. Fucking *shameful*, and even more shemful the gagging
    order remained in place for 16 years afterwards. Not (I strongly
    suspect) to protect the children, but to protect the council cunts and
    prevent "embarrassment".

    And the two bitches responsible are still working with kids. Words fail

    Jeremy Paxman middle-class? You surprise me.

    The "undeserving poor".

  12. It was amazing how a 'no' answer was taken as 'yes', and once or twice
    there was blatant leading the kids on to say something incriminating. I
    also suspect the tossers in charge had been reading too many Stephen
    King books.

    How can a film about the Jamaican bobsleigh team make you cry?

  14. Run Silent, Run Deep is another one without a single sniffle in it.

    I've seen it a couple of times, and never had the slightest urge to weep.
    It'll be like, you're at one end of the sofa, sobbing into your chocs and
    Kleenex, and I'm at the other end with a can of beer on the go, making
    derisory commments about the vacuous hippy eco-bollocks.

    "Heartless bastard."
    "But it's so dumb. I mean, look at..."
    "You don't understand!"

  17. I suspect it's entirely mutual.

    Indeed. Think who Platy'd have to have fucked.

    I can't watch that any more. I've become so over-sensitised I start
    sniffling before the opening credits are finished.

  20. Apart from the detrimental effect on the kids in the places affected, it
    set back the credibility of social workers all over the place. There are
    many fine, dedicated people working in that field, but the clueless
    muppets and wooly-headed twats responsible for this type of mess colour
    people's perception of the whole profession.
