I think the driver was scared off by the wet floor sign.
Do you actually camp out in the Aldi car park?


Hahaha, I've got a camp set up in the bushes on the roadside. It's a bit like bird watching really...

Got to give Vauxhalls a bit of credit though, they're really good at parking in tight spaces:

Spotted this Astra with body kit parked down town rolling proof that Vauxhall drivers know nothing about car styling since its got three JDM Japanese Car styling stickers on the back window

1. Shocker decal
2. JDM green/yellow wing
3. Japanese cartoon character known as "Domo Kun"
Possibly 4 since the crazy cookie monster is common choice on drift vehicles

All on a 1.4 Diesel seriously dude!!


I liked your post....because it has the cookie monster in it :D


#408971 Terror Level Raised

I have been reading lately that terrorists are thinking that Ireland is a supposed safe haven for them bit I know they are being monitored but nothing will actually be done to them cause they don't seem to be up to much until they do appear to be planning or making some sort of explosive then there will be something done. Ireland has enough problems with the IRA still active to some extent


I wish no harm come to any Irish brethren but, it would make my day if there were a bunch of Al-Qaeda wotsits over there who get caught by your local 'Mick'...


Remember what happened up in Glasgow when those rubber heads decided to try and blow up an airport:


"As the Jeep Cherokee came straight at the airport doors going about 30 miles an hour, the driver apparently failed to realize that there are security bollards (those short vertical posts that are designed to keep vehicles like, say, explosive-laden Jeep Cherokees, from ramming into nice things) outside of just about every federal building nowadays. That's right: they were ambushed by stationary objects, clearly positioned and delineated with bright yellow rings that help make them more visible with the express purpose of making sure people don't accidentally hit them. They didn't even look at the airport beforehand! They just jammed the car into gear and hoped that MapQuest wouldn't steer them wrong.


When their car hit the bollards, the propane tanks (surprisingly just as planned) actually went off! Right in the terrorist's faces! Like 30 feet from the airport! As their car caught fire, one of the terrorists took off to start fistfights (because Momma Terror didn't raise no quitter) and was promptly put down by the police. The other, now currently on fire, ran about for a while doing what people on fire do--which is mostly wishing that they weren't on fire--when this happened:

Because it's Scotland, and they still build !Removed! men up there.

In the space of about 30 seconds, this man was in a car accident, an explosion, lit aflame and then kicked in the balls with more force than a human foot can technically take."

#406917 Scottish Independence Poll

Posted by Ianb on 07 September 2014 - 07:13 PM

To be fair, there is a lot more wrong with England than anything Mr Cameron has done... And I can't say I'm a massive fan of him. In fact even Mr One eyed Scotsman who was our PM for a short while was not even the cause of all the trouble - however one can say he's done a much worse job than Mr DC... What about Mr Blair leading us into a wonderful Iraq war? Another wonderful Labour Party leader...

Was he the leader of 'come all to England, free house, free money in central London...? For one of your wives that is.. Don't forget the other wife or two!

Don't get me wrong, this is not a rant/speech from a strong Tory supporter, I just tend to look at things from both sides. What I often see is:
Labour stuffing it all up..
Tories promising xyz and finding they have nothing left in the coffers after labour leaves...

Then again that HS2 thing seems wonderfully useless...

But ask yourselves, if someone promised you a £60k+ salary and strong pension, wouldn't you say whatever the sheep want you to say? By the time they find our you're in it for the money you've already made more than they will in their entire lives...

Check out how much Mr Blair is worth - not your typical 'labour' worker now...
