Jamie Oliver takes the p*ss...

"TV chef Jamie Oliver has said young British people are "wet behind the ears" and European immigrants are "tougher" workers.The presenter, whose restaurants include the Jamie's Italian chain, said they would all have to close if there were no migrants to staff them."There wouldn't be any Brits to replace them," he said in an interview with Good Housekeeping magazine.Young British people were not good at "long hours in hot kitchens", he said.Oliver said that when he was in his 20s, it was normal for him to work 80 to 100 hours a week in the restaurant trade.He added: "But the EU regulation now is 48 hours, which is half a week's work for me. And they still whinge about it!"British kids particularly, I have never seen anything so wet behind the ears!"I have mummies phoning up for 23-year-olds saying to me, 'My son is too tired.' On a 48-hour week! Are you having a laugh?" -- BBC website

What a tosser... why would anyone want to work 20,000 hours a week for 36p an hour? Dickhead! It makes me really angry hearing someone as wealthy as Jamie Oliver making such insulting comments towards young British workers. There is too much exploitation by employers in this country.

Rant over.

Freak of the week... Lauren Harries

JEEZUS... What a mess. No talent. No personality and what the f*ck is it?

Ben Affleck: Batman

So... Ben Affleck will be playing the new Batman in the forthcoming Superman vs Batman or whatever they plan to call it.

Why do I feel underwhelmed by this news?

Celebrity Big Brother Archetype No. 2

There is always a presenter from Loose Women.

Celebrity Big Brother Archetype No. 1

There is always at least two "B" rate actors from either Coronation Street or EastEnders or BOTH!!

Under The Dome

It took me two evenings to completely watch the first episode of this new series based on the novel by Stephen King... and to be honest I'm not sure I can be bothered to watch the rest. Lost rip off is the immediate thought that sprang to mind. Various characters with unusual backgrounds and back stories cut off from the rest of the world is not exactly original - and when I read on the Internet (assuming it is true!) that the secret of the dome involves aliens I sighed in dismay. Pathetic.

Queuing up to be nicked

What is the fascination with trying to smuggle drugs into Peru? Why Peru?? Apparently there is a prison especially dedicated to holding blackmailed British women (and there seems to be a helluva lot of them!)

And why does it take 50 years before any of them stand trial? None of it makes sense. And wouldn't you have thought that the Peruvian authorities would think there is a common thread and try and do something to stop the blackmailers? No... that would be too obvious.

"America is not a country. It's just a business. Now pay me."

I really enjoyed this film, although it is far from perfect. The acting is top notch, especially Brad Pitt and the dialogue well and truly grips you. The only things that disappointed me were the lack of story (okay a crucial point) and the way it ended in midair. Also I didn't understand the point of the late James Gandolfini's character (Mickey). We get some great scenes with him and then he abruptly disappears. The violence is exceptionally brutal and explosive but ultimately I was left wanting more...

Horrible Hemel Hempstead

"Hemel Hempstead has been named the ugliest town in the United Kingdom. The Hertfordshire town which was developed after the Second World War gained 785 of more than 3000 votes cast on a website.

Sam Jordison, who was involved in the survey said: I know why Hemel did so well in the poll. I've been there once. And once was more than enough" -- The Daily Telegraph.

He's right... IT IS A SH*THOLE!!!

Rant over.

Thames W*nkers

"P*ss taking b*st*rds"... is the phrase that springs to mind!

More G4S incompetence

You wouldn't have thought the company G4S could stoop any lower... Not only did they make a titanic mess of running the security at London 2012. Conned the authorities on mischarging for tagged offenders. But now the scumbags have failed to check the credentials of a nutter they employed to undertake security work in Iraq, who subsequently murdered two colleagues in a drunken brawl.

Why aren't these incompetent b*st*rds shut down once and for all?

Rant over.

Screw tops...

Another one of the many things that nark me is trying to put a screw top back onto a container... They never ever go back on properly the first time. Always always end up on the skew EVERY BLOODY TIME!!!

Rant over.

Facebook adverts

I find it amusing glancing at the adverts that now appear on Facebook - usually for mobile phones or mobile phone networks... as there is always about 58,000 comments slagging the product or service off. Makes you wonder why the advertiser would bother?


The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I'm not sure that they actually needed to make this new trilogy of films. Don't get me wrong I love Tolkien's novels but after the astounding brilliance of The Lord of The Rings was it really necessary to do it all again? My biggest issue is stretching a 300 page book very thinly into three films and adding new bits to the story (Radagast for example who wasn't even in The Hobbit). The acting doesn't seem to be as good either... or it actually maybe the script... the Rivendell scene was lacklustre and stilted with Christopher Lee being totally inanimate (okay I realise he is getting very old). The dwarves all blurred into one and were difficult to differentiate with the exception of Richard Armitage as Thorin.

It lacked a performance as good as Viggo Mortensen's in the original and the whole thing felt like inferior déjà vu (if there is such a term!)

And the 12th Doctor is... Peter Capaldi

Superb... An older Doctor! I have never watched The Thick of It but everyone says he was brilliant in it, so I am really looking forward to Peter Capaldi making a completely new take on The Doctor. No more zany comedy please... Darkness is what we need.

Great stuff!

Machete advertises

I cannot believe cult "B" rate actor Danny Trejo has stooped to advertising Old El Paso tacos on the telly. Humiliating!

Rant over.
