The best thing about Nev is he’s trying to learn. He’s nearly sixty, from a thoroughly working class background and has spent his life working in toxic male environments, but he wants to be taught about stuff. That’s a fucking brilliant example, imho. People are never too old or long in the tooth or defined by their surroundings or upbringings or too past being able to want to choose to spread love over hate.

He’s a fucking great guy and has been for a long time. Think I’ve said it before on here but he used to bring a minibus load of disadvantaged kids bowling once a week at the alley I used to work at and showed an unbelievable level of patience and understanding with them. Top, top bloke.


#5

his timeless put-down of Michael Owen feels more poignant knowing what an absolute diamond he is.


#6

Good to see old favourite Ohgood using it to wonderful meme effect on twitter.com as well:


#7

has the best autobiography title of all time too


#8

Top bloke. Anyone who wants to openly discuss issues that affect minority groups and the disadvantaged in society gets my respect. Plus he hates Piers Morgan.

cracks knuckles


#11

Sad about what’s happened with his Twitter eh, that Asha lady has really done a number on him.


#12

I’m out of the loop whats happened


#13

He hands his Twitter over to campaigners to give them a platform, it’s a really good thing to do and has led to some great causes getting good exposure.

There is one lady that was doing them for a good cause though who has kind of hijacked it for everyone and constantly posts selfies of herself. She decided she was going to use it to speak about autism recently despite not being autistic and having no reason whatsoever to do so, people rightly pointed out that she should cede the platform to an actual person who knows what they’re talking about if she wanted to highlight autism and she got really huffy about it. It turns out she was literally in the police as well which was weird.

Anyway, for whatever reason all of that has now resulted in Big Nev’s Twitter being used as a platform for Adult Babies/Diaper Lovers.


#14

this is why we can’t have nice things


#15

She also proceeded to block people who pointed this out.


#16

i wish the big man himself would just take back the reins, and maybe even give graham linehan one of his withering put-downs.


#17

favourite this post if AB/DL is a thing you didn’t know about until today


#18

Properly bad that she thought she could take over someone else’s platform and start blocking people. So entitled.


#19

It’s a midweek Channel 4 9pm “documentary” favourite subject


#20

Good thread
