Kevin the carrot and the nanny state by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 21-Feb-2018
Unbelievable. Aldi ad. banned because it appealed to children and might encourage them to drink alcohol. What a complete and utter waste of our money. The advertising standards agency should be scrapped. I thought the ad was funny, enjoyed it when it was on but it never made me drink more than I usually do or dash off to Aldi to buy booze, I might however make a point of buying alcohol from Aldi n... more >>

    can't say I ever saw that ad but I'm appalled by it on behalf of carrots everywhere.
    When are Aldi opening the new big store in Barrovia ? Seems to be taking ages .

egg on chin time by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 13-Feb-2018
There`s me thinking the Old Lighthouse was the place with the blue structure on the roof down the ellers opposite the stan laurel. Turns out it`s jane swan`s lightbulb shop. Poor effort, really poor effort, and theatre street was mentioned as well, still an` all, the lantern house would make a gradely coffee shop/ice cream parlour.   
  • Re: egg on chin time by early doors (Member 10235862) on 13-Feb-2018
    aye well I nearly picked you up on that when you mentioned the 'sheltered housing opposite ' . The lantern house has changed hands recently but don't know what will become of it. Another arty farty gaff probably.

    Looks like we are not getting a steakhouse any time soon, not bothered but Mr.Naz should be banned from trading with his history of employing slaves.

  • Re: egg on chin time by early doors (Member 10235862) on 22-Feb-2018
    Ralphie and other worthies enthusing over the ice cream shop. Noticeable it's a lady from Barrovia ,choosing to invest in the festival town . My own worthless opinion is she'd be better off in a busier street.

What could be nicer.... by zap (Member 10216554) on 7-Feb-2018
Better punch another hole in our metaphorical belt gentlemen, I note another planning application for a food outlet in t'village is under way. This time it's for an Ice Cream Parlour in the old Light House shop on Theatre Street. Crushed nuts ?!   
  • Re: What could be nicer.... by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 7-Feb-2018
    I`m thinking that it could be very nice if done properly, a few tables outside in a sheltered area and a proper barista to make the coffee. Parking though, as ever a problem unless there is a car park? and the ice cream must be italian, nowt else comes close. signed, Fred Emney.

    If you go on rightmove ulverston there is an advert for a town house new build, bit unclear whether it`s just one house to be built or the advert is just depicting the type of house (or houses) to be built

  • Re: Canal street new build by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Feb-2018
    Row of 4 townhouses ,shown on the map as being on the Shell garage side. The side elevation also shows rising ground so it must be that side. Can't say I'd want to live there.
    Have they got PP ? Suppose they must have if they offered for sale

  • Re: Canal street new build by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Feb-2018
    In fact it is the old Canal Tavern site but the agents blurb pinpoints the site opposite ,hence my confusion. They renewed PP and the garages are at the back . Still wouldn't want to live there

  • Re: Canal street new build by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 1-Feb-2018
    Nor me but I suppose "prices from" £225k reflects the unattractiveness of the site, real entry level new build first time homes. The barrovians will love `em

dog id by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 31-Jan-2018
Don`t know much about dogs but surely the dog depicted int` liar article is an alsatian? even the liar should be capable of producing a photograph of a pit bull.   
  • Re: dog id by early doors (Member 10235862) on 31-Jan-2018
    Come on be fair ,the caption reads 'close up of dogs teeth ' Very accurate.

  • Re: dog id by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 31-Jan-2018
    Aye, but the article was about pit bull dogs so if I was doing a piece on fighting pit bulls I would illustrate it with a picture of a pit bull. And, while we are on the subject of dogs, I had a wander along Well lane/Priory road recently and the incidence of dog fouling is increasing. Filthy low life scum that don`t clean it up, I`m beginning to think oostun is getting worse than Barrovia, disgusting retards.

Clamped cars by early doors (Member 10235862) on 30-Jan-2018
Been two clamped cars on Priory Road and Quebec St for weeks now. WTF ? Why don't they just tow them ??   
  • Re: Clamped cars by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 30-Jan-2018
    Even stranger, a moped has been clamped down the bottom of Burlington street, down the bottom right by the wall. Makes no sense, I thought mopeds were zero road tax. One of those cars on priory road had been in a collision and was a write off, never going to be driven again. Looks like the town has got a new broom, sweeping clean.

  • Re: Clamped cars by early doors (Member 10235862) on 30-Jan-2018
    Even if a car is zero road tax you still have to apply for it and renew it on time ,plus it has to have insurance and MoT where appropriate.
    Anyhow my point is why don't they tow these wrecks away ?

  • Re: Clamped cars by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 30-Jan-2018
    They do (eventually) first it seems they have to stick a warning notification onto it informing who it may concern that the car will be towed away if not removed but I think it gives a thirty day period of grace. I don`t know why the owner cannot be contacted via the dvla and asked why the car is sat on a public highway untaxed and uninsured. One of the cars on quebec street was blocking someone`s drive.

  • Re: Clamped cars by early doors (Member 10235862) on 30-Jan-2018
    30 days is ridiculous. The one on Quebec St was still there on Sunday when I walked past. If it was across my drive I would tow it myself.

  • Re: Clamped cars by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 31-Jan-2018
    So would I but it would have to be a clandestine manoeuvre, I can imagine it leading to all sorts of charges like driving without insurance and the rest of it. Do it at night and deny everything.

Usually staffed by a gormless slip of a lass who has zero interest in being a good barmaid, just in it for the money and I can just see the stools going up onto the tables the second the bell goes. Nowt worse.

Premier Inn by early doors (Member 10235862) on 11-Jan-2018
Premier Inn opening in 2 weeks. The staff ,sorry , the team have been cleaning up the towpath of litter and dogshit.

    People who pay their own bills and some of the contractors will use Premier Inn. Those on corporate accounts will continue to stay at Lakeside ,Swan etc.

  • Re: Premier Inn by zap (Member 10216554) on 16-Jan-2018
    I think the 3 establishments you mention are all privately owned concerns whereas Premier has the back up provided by a large group. They will prob get a lot of BAE business. The conteactors I know avoid staying in Barrovia.

  • Re: Premier Inn by Cloud (Member 10266536) on 17-Jan-2018
    Having been in a Premier Inn I'd say they're overpriced for what they are (basically a Travelodge that pretends to be more classy so they can charge more). Should fit right at home in Ulverston then.

Another "useful" plan by zap (Member 10216554) on 10-Jan-2018
There's an application to SLDC for change of use of the old Thomas Cook shop to "hot food takeaway" and staff accommodation. Given the massive presence of food outlets in t'village is one more desirable or needed?   
  • Re: Another by early doors (Member 10235862) on 10-Jan-2018
    Certainly not needed but that's not a reason to refuse PP ,providing it complies with all other requirements. Let's face it ,nobody wants to open a proper shop these days.

  • Re: Another by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 10-Jan-2018
    No longer being a late night toper, I`m wondering if the infamous ratburger van still plies its dodgy wares in the square ?

  • Re: Another by zap (Member 10216554) on 11-Jan-2018
    I find that I've had enough of the fuckwittery by about 9pm too so don't know if ratburger man still trades but would think its too good a pitch to give up. In Liarspeak I'd think the square is "iconic" and wonder if its the best location for yet more curry.

  • Re: Another by early doors (Member 10235862) on 11-Jan-2018
    The Ratburger didn't used to appear till about 9-30 pm so I'm not sure if they still come. In any case the people who ran it must surely have retired by now.
    Yes another curry house zap ,there seems to be an infinite demand but they probably have to close at 11pm .Parking will be the problem as always in Ulverston. No takeaways on the outskirts ,all in town.

  • Re: Another by zap (Member 10216554) on 11-Jan-2018
    Not for it meself, there's enough food outlets as it is, though there's an argument that it's better than another empty shop. Parking will be a problem, given that there's a busy taxi rank outside.

  • Re: Another by early doors (Member 10235862) on 11-Jan-2018
    Greenodd is not a bad little place ,pub ,chippy ,PO ,butchers ,bakers/café . Used to be 2 pubs and at least 2 banks.
    Best thing is you can park while going to a shop.

Forlorn old git by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 3-Jan-2018
What a sad and sorry spectacle, stood by the cross in his mixture of kilt and dashing white sergeant apparel and looking slightly embarrassed by it all. Why do it ralphie? someone should have a word. No one round the cross anyway, a few drunken teenagers was about it, something else that`s had it`s day. (there were actually more coppers than revelers).

    How these apparitions actually appear to look in any garment is secondary to their determination to possess and wear said garment, they just have to have the latest trend or style or whatever, that, in their tiny minds is enough. It`s the rest of us who suffer.

Christmas TV by early doors (Member 10235862) on 28-Dec-2017
What a pile of shite. If you don't like being lectured to by Attenborough and being annoyed by Sue Fucking Perkins you're fucked.
Where's Zulu and the Great Escape when you need them ?
  
  • Re: Christmas TV by zap (Member 10216554) on 28-Dec-2017
    Agreed. Never cared much for Attenborough, there's only so many times you want to watch animals shagging/killing each other. And why no "Casablanca" this year? And that Arry Potter shite can firk right off too.

OPENING TIME by early doors (Member 10235862) on 13-Dec-2017
Despite the Big Kings having huge amounts of dosh spent on it it doesn't seem to dawn on the landlord you can't do business if you don't open the fucking doors. 11-45 today ,Farmers quite busy with coffees etc. and a few topers ,Rose ditto ,Kings firmly shut.   
  • Re: OPENING TIME by WiseOldDave (Member 10213768) on 14-Dec-2017
    Maybe there was just nobody in to stay open for?? Beer's shite anyway. They'll want to sell more burgers than pints?

  • Re: OPENING TIME by early doors (Member 10235862) on 15-Dec-2017
    It was 11-45 a.m. What I mean is why don't they open earlier instead of letting the Farmers have all the trade ? It's a beautiful pub now ,ideal for early coffees etc.

  • Re: OPENING TIME by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 15-Dec-2017
    Some landlords just see the licencing trade as an easy way to make money, after a few months it dawns on them that it takes quite some effort to do it properly so they have the attitude "coffee? open in the morning? not worth it" and hand the customers over to someone who is prepared to make the effort. Next comes "clean the lines and pumps?" sod it, I`ll do it tomorrow. "Clean the loos? can`t aff... more >>

LEE DAVID PETERS by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 9-Dec-2017
What a prat, he showed `em didn`t he?
Refused to give specimen of breath got him the following :-
Pleading guilty to the offence, Peters was given a 50 day prison sentence, suspended for 12 months. He will also be subject to a eight week curfew, and was disqualified from driving for 30 months.

He was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £85 and costs of £85.

    Absolute wazzock. Once you are stopped and the breathalyser comes out there is absolutely no way out of it. Blow or not you are in the clart.

No seatbelt on, no licence no insurance no mot no road fund licence. If he had not used the phone maybe he wouldn`t have got pulled over.

    these are the same people who never get cars serviced or check their tyres etc. They buy cars off other pricks on e-bay because they ' don't want to get ripped off by a dealer '.But they happily give a few grand to a some bloke who arranges a 'meet ' in a layby.

  • Re: LEE DAVID PETERS by zap (Member 10216554) on 10-Dec-2017
    And while we are at it I see the Evening Mail Law Society are at it again. Some bloke was done for drunk in charge, was fined etc. But not banned. Now the budding Perry Masons are up in arms because he kept his licence. Very simple research would reveal that a ban is only discretionary for drunk in charge. Maybe they did look it up but don't know what discretionary means.

  • Re: LEE DAVID PETERS by early doors (Member 10235862) on 10-Dec-2017
    they think a discretionary is where you go to confess .
