    “It strikes me as odd that we’re not happy that the Conservatives have got a kicking.”

    If I could make a football analogy, for me it’s a bit like Liverpool beating Man United 8-0, I would find it highly amusing watching the Man United players and manager giving their shame faced interviews to the TV and press, I like the miserable looks on their fans, however I would also have to face the only slightly less repellent (sorry L.Bird if your still out there) Liverpool manager and players giving jubilant and celebratory interviews. At the same time I would also have the regret that my team (as ever) won bugger all.

    Thinking about the Incels, the Jihadis go on about getting 72 virgins when they die, I was wondering if in fact it actually stipulates that the virgins will also be young, attractive or even female!

    It would be karma (I know I’m mixing religions) if the jihadis had to service 72 sweaty incels for the rest of eternity!
    🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Couldn’t agree more, TM. It’s the violent and aggressive incel communities on the internet that worry me.

    TM “if I ever hoped for a girlfriend, i should start watching football and drinking beer.”

    Worked for me mate.

    In my late teens, I tried the tactic of staring off into space trying to look windswept and interesting, which was not particularly helpful.

    Although to be fair I was interested in football and beer long before I was interested in women and as I get older the football and beer thing seems to be gaining quickly on the interest in women. However, like a lot of men in their 60s, I have developed an increasing interest in sheds and staring into space.

    Sir Tom “And i thought your whole point was that the “nerds” are the incels?”

    Even if I did say that, which I didn’t:

    All incels are nerds, doesn’t mean all nerds are incels (Basic logic 101)

    Meeting a woman who loves her abuser is not unusual, however that does not mean that she is somehow attracted to “macho men” whatever that actually means.

    The most common causative factor in people (male and female) being a victim of domestic abuse is that they witnessed domestic abuse as a child.

    “we see many women attracted to the very sort of men who will abuse them.”

    What a load of bollocks, this is the kind of victim blaming that domestic abusers state to justify their behaviour.

    Domestic abusers come in all shapes and sizes and from all sections of society, male and female. It’s not just the macho men, it’s just as often the nerdy “intellectuals” who abuse their partners.

    To be fair, the incel’s inability to get laid might have more to be with their deeply unpleasant personalities and misogynist views rather than the women that they blame.

    Perhaps cutting back the amount of Lynx Africa they spray on themselves, learning to develop appropriate social skills and putting down the playstation console, might assist them in these areas.

    On a slightly more serious note, the development of the internet as the primary source of relationship building may have some impact on this. Back in the day the main way of developing relationships was either meeting someone at work/school/college/university, (all of which have a greater element of online rather than face to face interaction) or going to the boozer/night club.

    For those who weren’t naturally gifted in the looks and charm stakes, there were always people around who had those characteristics who you could model. One of the key means of learning for human beings is modelling other behaviours and actions (Bandura, Rotter, et al). Put all of that heady mix the presence of alcohol and the chances of reproductive behaviour increase significantly.

    Perhaps there should be a programme for incels to be taken for a Friday in night in the Bigg Market, if you can’t get laid there, then you do really have a problem.

    The Godfather and the Modfather
    In my opinion, the best version. Paul Weller even actually smiles, at 2.37.

    Very impressive, I didn’t realise that Teesside still has an enclave of Old Endlish speakers

    Not sure, ALB think there were hints of Berniciphobia.

    Everyone else in the world seems to offence at the slightest possibility of a slight, I think the population of the ancient kingdom of Bernicia should join in the fun.

    ALB – “if being mayor of north of Tyne can be described as a “high” office”

    North of the Tyne covers the whole of the city of Newcastle, the Borough of North Tyneside and all of the county of Northumberland a combined area of 2,022 square miles (nearly 4 times the size of that there London) and has a polulation of around 850,000 people. Of course all of the people there live in mud huts, own whippets, wear flat caps and smoke woodbines.
