Drug Couriers by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 15-Jul-2016
Just looking at the addresses given for these four bozo`s they were hardly living the high life were they? Ah well, they all have the same address now.   
  • Re: Drug Couriers by early doors (Member 10235862) on 15-Jul-2016
    These lads get into it and can't get out - until they get caught and jailed. As soon as they are free again the same gangs will be back on their case.It's the people higher up the ladder who never get nicked.

    ...........not that I'm defending them like but I've seen what these people are capable of.

Starbucks Drive-thru by early doors (Member 10235862) on 14-Jul-2016
Don't panic it's not here . It's opened up in Cockermouth of all places. just imagine the fume from certain quarters if they dared to open here in 'the festival town '.
And while I'm having a rant WTF is happening at the old brewery ? Answers on a postcard.
  
  • Re: Starbucks Drive-thru by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 14-Jul-2016
    As we are now (temporarily) Co-opless, it just serves to illustrate how unjust it all is. There`s Dalton with a flagship Co-op and the festival town, even after the alterations, with a cramped and claustrophobic store. And just down the road a derelict brewery with all the planning permissions in place and nowt happening.As for the coffee shops in the shire, I don`t use them, I can make better cof... more >>

    ..bloody 'ell mate ,I didn't realise you had a posh coffee machine. We bought one but only used it once ,can't be arsed washing it after.

  • Re: Starbucks Drive-thru by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 14-Jul-2016
    Perhaps I should have said it`s an espresso machine, not a filter machine. Espresso machines (proper ones) have a pump capable of at least 35bar which makes them pretty expensive. You can still get respectable results with a Gaggia machine, you just need to learn the technique. It is a bit messy, grinding beans makes a mess and disposing of the spent grounds is messy too. There are self cleaning m... more >>

stone cross by zap (Member 10216554) on 15-Jun-2016
Will anybody on here be purchasing one of the 45 Persimmon properties planned...or will it just be another phase in Oooston's metamorphosis into Wimbledon, Basingstoke and Esher?!   
  • Re: stone cross by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 15-Jun-2016
    I can`t see me moving in up there, perhaps the developer is pinning his hopes on a big influx of workers as the projected Glaxo expansion gets under way. I don`t know if any figures are available but once the construction is over Glaxo have a habit of only employing low numbers of staff, plant is designed to be as automatic and computer controlled as possible.

  • Re: stone cross by early doors (Member 10235862) on 15-Jun-2016
    I don't think Persimmon are 'pinning their hopes ' on any particular group of people. Ulverston is perceived as a desirable place to live /retire/invest and is relatively cheap compared to the Lakes.
    GSK job levels post-construction will be quite low ,as you say ,and mostly high-end jobs.

Fire last night by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Jun-2016
Why does the liar report on this fire but not say exactly where it was? "A three storey building in New Market st." that narrows it down then.

Food Fest by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 27-May-2016
It`s the food fest tomorrow chaps so don`t have a big breakfast !   
  • Re: Food Fest by zap (Member 10216554) on 28-May-2016
    Have they been flogging vodka sausages? Artisan brandy butties? Needless to say the town tonight is shite. Lager fuelled tattoo-proud simpletons, fat tarts who really need to buy mirrors, oafs who don't mind showing the world they are several brain cells less than monkeys. And nobody seems to have any control. The path of least resistance leads to our traditional innes and ancient hostelries. All ... more >>

Sainsbury`s by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 24-May-2016
Sainsbury`s are going to open in Windermere. Meanwhile, back in oostun, er , well , nowt . Well done that council. Pack of retards.   
  • Re: Sainsbury`s by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-May-2016
    It's just a Sainsburys Local and I think it used to be a Morrisons Local ,before that older readers will remember it as a garage.
    By the way ,in recent weeks I have called in Tesco inRawlinson St. Barrovia and Tesco Metro by Roose station. Both are excellent and much better than the Ulverston branch which is usually shit up and you can't get served.

  • Re: Sainsbury`s by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-May-2016
    Yeah, I use Tesco Roose Metro quite a bit, one that size would probably be ok for Ulverston but I am still holding out for a large value supermarket , possibly from those nice Germans !

suicide by dog by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 23-May-2016
Something strangely satisfying when an owner of a dangerous dog is attacked and killed by it. I will never understand the compulsion to own a notoriously dangerous dog, even for someone from Cleator Moor it should be a no brainer. Just glad it wasn`t an innocent passer by, or even worse, a child. To attempt to circumnavigate the law by breeding dogs that are of mixed parentage but still fatally ag... more >>

Ralphie`s rose tinted goggles by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 20-May-2016
...Market day is getting back to how it used to be is it Ralph? Well I was perambulating around the village and didn`t see anything like the market as was. I remember stalls right down New Market street, Brogden street and both sides of Market street, I remember packed pubs ( lile pig day ) with rich affluent farmers slowly getting pissed int` Sun, all the while bemoaning the prices at the auction... more >>

    Aye I remember all that too ,pubs open for a few hours did attract a few Barrovians such as myself. The old cattle market on Victoria Road etc. and farmers wives selling eggs and stuff . Good days.

Cult of Colin by Fray Bentos (Member 10255495) on 17-May-2016
Fuck me, they'll be dancing in the hippy quarter tonight- the Pickthallistas have been returned to power at t'Town Council. Its a rum looking bunch too as seen on Ulverston Labour's facebollox page, seems like more of a Labour sect than a Labour group. And the new bloody Mayor of Ulverston lives in bloody Swarthmoor- is that even legal? Who knows, never mind, lets all join hands and trudge back to... more >>

    If it matters I voted for one of them, him being the only one I'd ever heard of or knew anything about.

Newton street parking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-May-2016
I see the new restrictions are now in force. Wonder if the warden will ever get round to checking the cars for sale that usually take up full time residence on the bit of road by the green? Bet most of them are uninsured.   
  • Re: Newton street parking by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-May-2016
    is it now residents parking or what ?

  • Re: Newton street parking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-May-2016
    No, it is two hours max between summat like eight and six, no mention of residents parking scheme. They told me it`s too expensive to set up residents parking, cost of bylaws etc.

  • Re: Newton street parking by early doors (Member 10235862) on 18-May-2016
    I passed there today ,I think the sign says 2 hours or permit. Only one car for sale.

ignorance is bliss??? by zap (Member 10216554) on 4-May-2016
I saw on t'news that kids were kept off school by parents yesterday coz they (and teeechers) feel that testing is too much for the little darlings. It seems they are expected to know how to work out a third of 21 and how to make "i am" into one word using an apostrophe. Ye Gods, given that most kids today know sod all about anything except who's shagging Kim Kardashian then I'd say that's a good thing.

    Ah well ya see...thats where your mental rithmetic cums in.

No, not `im off `ere, those lowlife stealing the water bottles from the London marathon drinking station before the race had even started. Carting it away by the barrowload some of them. Mostly "ethnic race" judging by the photo`s.

Speed limit by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 21-Apr-2016
So, those sad , sorry , bewhiskered town elders are stirring from hibernation. Blinking myopically in the watery spring sunshine they are thinking "now, where was I ?" Oh yes, cars hurtling round town at over ten miles per hour. Needs banning. Well pickers, how exactly are you going to enforce it? Care to tell us?

    Would this be gleaned from the latest Labour party propaganda re the forthcoming election business? I note it offers the town 2 teachers and some sort of diversity person. Most inspiring.

    I don`t honestly know why filling stations still sell tobacco products, my understanding is there isn`t a lot of profit in it for the outlay.
