'Ere we go!....Again!!!! by WiseOldDave (Member 10213768) on 16-Apr-2014
So now the KUS brigade are getting humpty about the brewery being derelict, and how Robinson's are showing no respect to Ulverston cos of the state it's in???...
Well, whose fucking faults that? Yours you retarded fuckwits!! Construction of our lovely new supermarket might be under way now if it wasn't for you and your legal shenanigans.
If I was Robinson's I'd just say "fuck you" and let it fal... more >>

Chopper by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 3-Apr-2014
Anyone know why a big yellow helicopter is sitting in Ford Park? landed there ten minutes ago, `bout eight o clock.   
  • Re: Chopper by twister (Member 10266532) on 3-Apr-2014
    Its there quite regularly, its the air ambulance. It usually called in to take seriously ill people across the bay to specialist hospitals like Blackpool or Preston

Nedgorb Street by early doors (Member 10235862) on 2-Apr-2014
Big changes in town ,Brogden St now the other way round ,see above ! Wonder how long it will take some of our ancient motorists to realise !

    Saw a bint last night in a big fuck off 4WD charge down Market St and attempt to turn right into Nedgorb Teerts . She aborted the attempt when she saw the Lettering on the road (admittedly only about 2 feet long) then just pretty much dumped the car outside the Grapes as she ran into co-op. Nice arse.

    Heh, Nedgorb.

    It'll take a while - look at all the chaos that happened in Basra when they put the new system in.

    But yes, I don't normally like to generalise but have come to learn that any combination of "female", "4x4" and "blonde" means "I'd better get out of the way". They don't mess about.

Free WiFi in Town? by Scum (Member 10233909) on 31-Mar-2014
Liar says the special town might be getting free WiFi. Bollocks to it. If it does come, the cunt's will make sure porn sites, gambling, video streaming bittorrent and all the other useful stuff will be blocked, so they can just fuck off and stick it upp their special arseoles.   
  • Re: Free WiFi in Town? by Cloud (Member 10266536) on 9-Apr-2014
    Yeah definitely. It'll also probably track everything you do and sell the data (as if Scroogle and Faceache don't do enough of that already) and be another handy little monitoring facility for GCHQ. The Poxy 3G flags work quite nicely thank you!

Judicial Review? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 29-Mar-2014

  • Re: Grapes.. Horse and Groom... knuckle draggers by ilikeeatingthings (Member 10161876) on 22-Mar-2014
    The pub has had dickheads for the past 50 years, when i was there i tried to put most of them on barwatch but every town centre pub has dick heads. When they leave tbere they go up town and then mainly gather the The Farmers. Poor do to say a pub is bad due the customers that drink in there and also the rest of town.

    The town is full of cunts!

    Appreciate what you did at The Grapes mate but ,despite what you say ,a pub is often judged by it's clientele. Decent people who might frequent a pub for the great beer etc. will be put off by it's reputation. It's going to take some turning round is all I'm saying.

  • Re: Grapes.. Horse and Groom... knuckle draggers by ilikeeatingthings (Member 10161876) on 23-Mar-2014
    It is no good as a pub these days as there is no smoking area other than the front street, best off as flats!

    If you always judged pubs by clientele then you'd never go into any Ulverston pub! Well not of a weekend anyway. Most of em have a hard core of decent, civilised, friendly locals.

  • Re: Grapes.. Horse and Groom... knuckle draggers by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Mar-2014
    yes zap ,they went from the platform nearest the castle ,down a steep grade to Green Ayre station now Sainsburys. Then to Morecambe Prom via Scale Hall. Apparently the line was electrified as an experiment. You can walk down from the bridge at Castle station down the old line for a bit of nostalgia ,thence to the Waggon and Horses I dare say !

  • Re: Grapes.. Horse and Groom... knuckle draggers by zap (Member 10216554) on 26-Mar-2014
    Have done that walk, all that remains really is the rail bridge over the Quay. The track bed is a cycle route now. Was in the Wagon & Horses in November, a cracking pub but a bit of a walk from the town centre. Theres also George and Dragon which is avoided coz its a Robinson's House. Top of the Quay is The 3 Mariners another good pub and reputedly the oldest in Lancaster.

    Aye, you are right! Went in with a mate to listen to a band and had a bottle of wine, rather than beer. (It WAS quite late). Still, recommend it. First went in over 10 years ago and it was a bit of a dump. Its been renovated over the years and is now a v good pub.

    I think the whole article in the liar is misleading. Housing Benefit is paid direct to tenants now and they are meant to pay their rent with it. Barrow Island used to be a decent place to live. I remember there was a letting office on Island Rd opposite the Co-op. If the dragon in there didn't like the look of you she wouldn't even give you an application form.

    A lot of decent people have been brought up on Barrow Island ,hard working families who squeezed into those flats. Most of the flats are now modernised but it's ironic that the flats are 10 times better but the tenants are 10 times worse. My parents told me that in the 1930's when people were genuinely on the breadline ,that area was clean and tidy. Now it's covered in drugs and dog shit.

    Looks like the Samovar tea and coffee place has gone as well.

    Not good to see a business go down BUT think this is a good example of them who see Ulv as a "special" place, a middle class paradise, a sort of Grasmere on the Bay - believing their own propaganda and, sadly, suffering for it.Its none of the above, its basically working class, BNP scum such as ourselves don't want ethically grown 100% Arabica, maybe we do but we can't really afford it. No, we're ... more >>

    Fair play its shite! Remember De Ganis's coffee? They used to shove a cup of hot milk past a coffee bean and - bingo!

  • Re: Smith n Harrisons by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Feb-2014
    de Ganis found out very early that English people like weak coffee. There also used to be something called Camp that older people used ,chicory or summat . WTF was that ?

  • Re: Smith n Harrisons by WiseOldDave (Member 10213768) on 1-Feb-2014
    Aye, Camp coffee..chicory essence..it were good enough when rationing were on..tasted like shite mind!

  • Re: Smith n Harrisons by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Feb-2014
    I googled Camp ,amazed to see it still on sale ! has lots of uses in cooking apparently .

  • Re: Smith n Harrisons by zap (Member 10216554) on 1-Feb-2014
    I remember it too. There was a picture of a soldier in a kilt, legs akimbo, outside a tent. Camp indeed! Anyone out there remember the White Door café? Where the chinky is now next to Naaz. And that adjoining bit was where Carl Pennington's tobacconist was. Aah Jim Frost flogging me 10 No 6 and telling me it was a bad habit!!
