    Indeed, especially one who can't even spell Fraudster. Fredster pffft.

    not bad efforts rob, linger and alfie. Lacking my core honesty and sharp wit... but what else should I expect from some fairly bitter lefties staring down the barrel of a four-term key government.

    Along came…
    Let’s not forget Mr Jones is a master of equivocation and the hyperbolical ad hominem attack himself – the start to his last ‘column’ is a classic of the oeuvre:

    News broke that the Prime Minister, presumably exercising a perk of office, had seemingly hurled a coffee-shop waitress to the floor, then not once but twice, and regardless of his accompanying wife’s feelings let alone those of the other patrons, their children, two sensitive pet dogs and a wheel-chaired granny, violently had his way with her. Then emerging triumphantly from under the table wearing her knickers on his head, he’d searched around for fresh victims, before launching salivating and naked into the street in a quest for fresh flesh to commit his vile corruptions on.

    Now while this may sound like a personal fantasy on Mr Jones part – it in no way resembles the truth and seeks to belittle the facts of the affair – it purely seeks to stir emotion and desensitize the reader who may feel the stirrings of empathy that might otherwise arise in a straight reading of the events.
    Recently he was heard to pontificate that all beard wearers were wowsers – yet a photo of Bob Jones with a truly Mephistophelean beard does exist on the net (pictured with his younger brother Lloyd)
    Jones is not known as a team player but I have found at least one picture of him leading a posse of eager young men into a friendly version of the ‘beautiful game’

    (and as a footnote there are at least two PA ‘posters’ in this picture…)

    a four-term key government.

    1: 'at the end of the day'
    2: 'actually I don't remember'
    3: 'whatever'
    4: 'Pfffftt'
    his four stock 'terms' are becoming progressively more incoherent.

    Dal Boy.......unlike alfie, linger, rob and steve whose efforts are mildly commendable, your efforts are always, without exception, self-indulgent tripe

  • fredster jones,

    Upon re-reading, I have to admit your four-term key contribution is clever. See, I do call it as fairly as I am accurate.

    actually, very clever Ian. Your turn to throw an olive branch into the mix.

    contributors to this site resort to vile ad hominem stuff

    Never find that sort of stuff on the right wing sites, do we?

    good to know that you recognise the underbelly of society when it's served up on a plate, I cud go on…

    *the second meaning of course!

    Your turn to throw an olive branch into the mix.

    Well thanks, but, I’m not sure that that’s how this narrative ‘arc’ works, unless those doves are building a ‘wickerman’… your pleas may be to Noah vail.

    If you want to contribute to sites such as public address andin, you must learn to spell.

    A standard 3 spelling qualification is just not good enough.

    Mate, one of the basics of the English language is where you do and don’t use capital letters. The first letter of a name is one of those places.

    Another basic of using social networks is knowing when you are welcome. You aren’t. Fuck off.

    Still impressed after all these years by the classy machine-knitted Beagle Boys jumpers that early Proud Scum sported. Way before orange was the new black they had the colour matched perfectly.

    Blue meanies...

    You bitter pinkies must pay more attention in your spelling classes

    I'm from Sydenham, a magickal place where spells are done by the 'working class' - nothing as big as The Babalon Working* mind you ...

    *and Jack Parsons was an actual Rocket Scientist!

    All language is magic.

    If you want to contribute to sites such as public address andin, you must learn to spell.

    That’s useful, but what’s more important, is knowing how and when to use filthy words to express your feelings. From what I can see, you don’t have the intellectual capacity for that, let alone the vocabulary.
