Have you tried talking to them? Surely you can get them to agree to only party on the weekend, or at least tell you when they’re going to do it.

It’s just that my instinctual reaction is along the lines of what you just posted - only get the authorities involved if you absolutely have to. The law/government can be extremely unpleasant if it’s directed against young people at the behest of the older and better off (not that I’m saying you necessarily are).

Coco Khan is a Guardian columnist and feature writer, and has never had bad neighbours.

FTFY, graun.

The New York Times’ take on it the other day was even worse:

Not the guardian but its of the ilk


#1009

mental idea for an article

‘What if the bear woke up and simply ripped the rabbit’s head off?’

I know this thread is designed to shit all over the Guardian (and boy do they deserve it sometimes), but I found the linked article really good, as are many of the “Long Read” articles lately.

But are its fans merely cashing in on good luck and well-paid jobs


#1013

Haha. Accumulating property and extracting wealth from workers! Think these guys might be onto something.

Ah, good old universal, applicable advice.

“He earns £50,000 a year as a commercial manager”
“saving £35,000 of his £75,000 salary
“Emily, who is 44 and earns £90,000 a year
“Discovering Fisker’s and Adeney’s writings (and inheriting some money from his father) saved him.”
“Mrs Frugalwoods, who has written a book about opting out of urban life and buying 26 hectares (66 acres) of woodland in rural Vermont… buying 66 acres of rural Vermont complete with house and barn cost the Frugalwoods $389,000.”

Ah he might not be 36. Learn to read bruv

Good with money and bought a woodland. Nominative determinism in action.

Did better in life than their neighbours, the Spendthriftbins

The Guardian did a piece on them earlier this year, it turned out that they actually both WFH full-time and spend 1000s a month


#1020

I was convinced they’d changed it by deed poll

What’s all this bollocks all over their site today about the ‘rise of populism’ and trying to equate ‘left and right populism’ as if they’re in any way the same thing? It’s all this horseshoe theory shite isn’t it, the liberal centre trying to justify their existence

It seems like their main source for the existence of this ‘rise’ is… themselves lol


#1022

Just looked at the main article

Ctrl+F liberal and Ctrl+F capital give no results.

This anti populism thing is the last grasp of holding on to the hegemony

this is so perfect isn’t it, and sums up why the news media is in such a sorry state
