was amusing for about a week. now twitter is just full of people shouting “lol gammon!!!” over and over and over at any bad opinion from an arsehole and it’s incredibly tiresome and embarrassing.

But enough about Drowned in Sound

think it used to be alright but it’s really reached the point where it looks like a Mumsnet abbreviation or something, like ‘DH’ and all that. don’t really like the idea of outsiders thinking we’re the indie Mumsnet.

In a lot of these polls where someone arbitrarily assigns some act as ‘tory’ (because, I guess, they see it as not embodying the pursuit of a 19th Century working class person, etc.) I’d have thought ‘neoliberal’ could work better in any case. It seems to mean Blairite/centrist lover of capitalism in general (regardless of what its actual definition is).

Things learned in this thread: totally fuck all :smiley:


#316

Seems 17 people have agreed not to call each other Tories so that’s some progress!


#317

I think Im going to keep doing it - sorry

In the same way if I called you a dickhead I would not expect there to be a phallus growth upon your fod.
