Remembrance Day will now honour civilians and victims of terror after the Royal British Legion announces the red poppy isn't just for fallen soldiers


Watch out, lads. Big Poppy is getting bigger. The Cookie Monster wasn't enough for them.

A man who disrupted a Remembrance Sunday event with fireworks had to be rushed away from angry veterans by police.

The fireworks exploded in the sky as hundreds of people stood in silence at 11:00 GMT and listened to the Last Post at the cenotaph in Eccles, Salford.

A man had set them off from a window ledge in a disused pub across the road. Angry veterans began shouting, "Get him out!" and trying to break down the pub door before officers took the man away.

I've heard/seen so many complaints about poppy burners this year yet I don't think anyone new has actually done it this time around.

People get really angry at the argument that burning something as a symbolic or political gesture is exactly the sort of thing that you're only really allowed to do because of the freedom are lads fought for.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people


>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."


>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”

Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

That's how the character Switch got their name. You know, the "Not like this..." one. I doubt the removal was political since nobody knew enough about transexualism back then to object to it.

>It's more or less a kitchen sink of philosophy and speculative sci-fi ideas.

Nearly all of which were pretty much nicked from other sci-fi movies and franchises. In that sense, the Matrix was kind of a pastiche of all the ideas about a high-tech dystopian future that were already out there.

Even the production design wasn't as groundbreaking as everybody said (bullet time aside), and took loads of inspiration from films like Men in Black. Not even the effect of (faux) Japanese characters running down a monochromatic computer screen was new, it could first be seen in Independence Day while they're aboard the alien mother ship.

Ok, so bullet time was the one effect that the Matrix genuinely created. Good for them. Everything else, they copied.

Slow walking at 45 'a sign of faster ageing'

How fast people walk in their 40s is a sign of how much their brains, as well as their bodies, are ageing, scientists have suggested.

Using a simple test of gait speed, researchers were able to measure the ageing process. Not only were slower walkers' bodies ageing more quickly - their faces looked older and they had smaller brains.


I knew it. I fucking knew it. Slow walking mouthbreathing mongs have smaller brains. This explains a lot. Fast walking master race for life.

Still nothing wrong with backing up your claim by showing the knife. You're already in for armed robbery anyway, regardless of whether or not you actually have a knife. I think there have been court cases where somebody got done for armed robbery just for poking his index finger through his coat pocket and saying he had a gun.

So why not present your weapon to the poor lad you're robbing so he'll at least know you're not a pretentious cunt.

And besides, why say you've got a knife. If you're bullshitting anyway, why not say you've got a gun in your coat pocket. Would convince me more than the prospect of getting grazed by an imaginary knife across the counter.

West Cumbria Magistrates Court was told that Berwick had been part of a group of males shouting in the street at around 4am. When approached by police, Berwick began flexing his muscles and shouting, "I'm a big lad". He was unsteady on his feet and continued shouting when asked to quieten down. Berwick told police, "you won't arrest me" but was then arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

>He told magistrates: "I've stopped drinking now. I'm getting into bad habits." Berwick was fined £280 and must also pay £85 costs and a £32 surcharge to fund victim services.

I've thought about starting my own cult. I'm already a quite narcissistic personality, and the thought of people worshipping me and throwing all their money at me seems more appealing to me than it ever should. Even if the average person will never be so gullible, all it takes is a few dozen people who are willing to blow their life savings on the prospect of eternal salvation, and you're golden.

Or maybe I'll start selling esoteric items on eBay or Amazon. There seem to be huge profit margins if you convince people that quite ordinary items that you can make from £10 worth of raw materials possess healing powers:

19531 Porn Ban Binned (for a time)

>The UK’s age-verification system for online pornography is expected to be delayed indefinitely, just weeks before it is due to be launched.

>A delay could see the issue of age verification fall under the responsibility of whoever wins the contest to be prime minister, such as the frontrunner Boris Johnson.

>The age block was due to be one of the first of its kind anywhere in the democratic world. Websites that refused to implement the checks face being blocked by UK internet service providers or having their access to payment services withdrawn.

>Age verification was first proposed in the run-up to the 2015 general election by Sajid Javid, when he was culture secretary in the coalition government. However, despite coming close to completion the government has struggled with the details of implementing the policy.

So no, otherlad, the porn ban is not for real. And I have to assume the use of "coming close close to completion" was not an incidental one by the Guardian.

>Blizzard bosses reduce gamer's ban and release prize money

>US gaming publisher Activision Blizzard has reversed its decision to withhold prize money from a player who expressed support for the Hong Kong protests. Professional gamer, Ng Wai "Blitzchung" Chung, said in Mandarin, "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age," on a live broadcast after a tournament. He was banned for one year and said was told he would not get any prize money.

>In a new statement, the company said: "In hindsight, our process wasn't adequate, and we reacted too quickly." The hashtag #Blizzardboycott trended on Twitter after the 21-year-old was banned, and some players tried to delete their accounts in solidarity with "Blitzchung". Even some US politicians commented on Blizzard's initial decision.


It's fun seeing companies flop around in the face of Hong Kong protests after they've spent so long now kowtowing to Beijing. Who knows, maybe someone will question if having China so invested in our nuclear power plants might be a bad idea again.

20318 Thomas Cook collapses as last-ditch rescue talks fail

Thomas Cook has collapsed after last-minute negotiations aimed at saving the 178-year-old holiday firm failed.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the tour operator had "ceased trading with immediate effect".

It has also triggered the biggest ever peacetime repatriation, aimed at bringing more than 150,000 British holidaymakers home.

Peter Fankhauser, Thomas Cook's chief executive, said the firm's collapse was a "matter of profound regret".

Lorry drivers stuck in IIIWW traffic jams may cause rise in ‘dogging’

Ministers working hard to prepare for a no-deal IIIWW have been dogged by an unlikely new problem with 25 days to go. Officials planning to ease any congestion on the transport links to Dover have encountered the potential for an embarrassing issue: a rise in “dogging”.

At the Conservative Party conference last week, one member of the cabinet confessed that a side effect of increased congestion in Kent from stalled truck drivers would be an increase in the number of lorry drivers visiting voyeuristic sex sites in the Garden of England.

“One of the things we talk about in these no-deal meetings concerns hauliers and their activities,” the minister said. “The main thing is whether they will turn up at the Channel ports with the right paperwork. But there are also dogging hotspots all over the place.” Ministers believe the issue is more likely to flare up with British truckers. “Do Europeans even do dogging?” the minister asked. “There is something deeply British about dogging.”

This does sound like me.

Doorman in this context would be more like a host, or maitre'd or even the bloke outside Harvey Nicks wot opens the door for people, rather than a bouncer. I've worked in places like that. I have also worked in a 'gastrobar' that had actual bouncers, but posh ones in suits.

I don't remember being rejected from my own establishment, nor have I ever had my name above the door, at least not in a literal sense, with a big sign or anything. Certainly if you googled my name you would find it linked to certain West Yorkshire establishments. Maybe that's what I meant, or I was just trying to impress everyone here by implying I owned the place.

I was also on a lot of drugs back then though, so it's entirely possible I've either forgotten the doorman story or made it up in a haze of coke after being turned away from a nightclub I had nothing to do with.

It does seem like it was definitely me dropping these clues though, unless there was another Leeds/Yorkshire based chef on here two or three years ago too, but I probably would have noticed that.

I do remember the doorman thing. It was the pretentious posh bar/restaurant place, and the bloke was new. He wouldn't let me in, to go to work, and I kicked off. I think I showed him my knives, which probably didn't help, upon reflection.

I was likely off my tits too, so he was doing a good job by keeping people like me out.

This genuinely reads like one of those Viz Drunken Baker comics.
