      • "Poor service"

      Try another supplier

      I tried to buy a pair of Muckboots and was happy with the price, and the £1.99 delivery advertised, so that went to the checkout. The £1.99 was not shown there and I did not want to pay the £4.95 charge so I wrote them an email.
      They did not ready my email and just listed the delivery charges advertised....even though the cheapest is not shown at the checkout.
      I bought the exact same boots from another supplier who were £12 cheaper, who delivered for free and, amazingly, who delivered within 48 hours. Fantastic

      • "unprofessional staff"
      • "Rude Behaviour "
      • "Poor Service "

      Worst Company to deal with.

      I wish I could give them 0 star. Worst company ever I have dealt with. Have ordered an item from them a label printer, and realised that its not fit for the intended purpose. When I contacted them fro return they refused to take the return as we were business customer and not an individual customer. The guy i spoke to over the phone told me that they cant take return and after insisting he said I need to contact my solicitor in case I am not happy with their policy or service. Finally I mange to speak to other person in their team and he said send us the request return and we can look into it. Its been more than a month no response from them. I sent few chaser emails but no response what so ever. Beware of such fraudsters!!!! better to buy from companies like PC world or Curries who value their customers rather than these companies operating from bed room or Garage.

      Becky L!

      Becky L was the person I was connected with and she was extremely helpful in understanding my issue with my account and understood exactly who she needed to talk to, to get the right answers in my direction. She has outstanding customer service skills and goes above and beyond her role. I can tell she had a smile on her face without even seeing her! Really does make your day just that little bit better so thank you again, Becky. Superb attitude and I can only imagine she provides great moral.

      Pacino's swansong

      Country – USA

      In 1971 John and Yoko sent a complimentary short note to up and coming British folk Steve Tilson, offering him some advice about how to deal with fame and life in general, if his talent came to fruition. But Steve never got it, or knew about that letter, until 2006, when an antiques collector rang him up to verify it. He couldn’t, of course, but quite a surprise for a man that never did become famous. Hollywood read this story and 8 years later made a movie about it, Danny Collins. But it wasn’t going to be about some ginger bearded nobody from Leicestershire, opting instead for the more Hollywood option of the letter being sent by just John to an ageing fictional pop star, Danny Collins, more Rod Stewart than Nick Drake, Pacino’s best and certainly most enjoyable performance for a while. This film will remind you why you like this guy.

      Al, like DeNiro, and many of those Italian American A-Listers from the 1980s, hasn’t really done much of note since and we stopped watching their movies, mostly romantic comedies or mid range thrillers now as they refuse to play the characters they should be in their 60s and 70s, the dreaded avuncular old man roles. It must be hard to entertain the idea that you may not be a big star anymore. But for Danny Collins, Pacino did, at least, and earnt a Golden Globe nomination for his efforts, his 20th in total, with 5 wins to his name to date. But his only Oscar was back in 1993, Scent of a Woman, an apologetic one by The Academy for not giving him an Oscar for the previous seven nominations, including the Godfather trilogy, Serpico and Dog Day Afternoon, barnstorming performances in likewise movies. It shows you how tough it was to win gongs back then.

      Danny Collins (Al Pacino) is a huge perma - tanned star with the Vegas mansion and showbiz lifestyle but living off past glories, just old enough to get away with throwing cool pool parties with lots of beautiful people and rock and roll enough to pop A-List drugs. But he hasn’t had a hit in 25-years and hasn’t written a new song in three decades but still making a great living by touring the back catalogue and hits to packed venues for the older crowd, his loyal fans, demanding he sing his hit song Baby Doll, and others. He is a likable guy and people still want to be around him, a beautiful young girlfriend (Michelle Vieth) and a loyal manager, Frank (Christopher Plummer), for all those years still by his side.

      On Collins big 65th birthday bash at the mansion he receives a special gift from Frank, something Frank has been keeping secret for three months and champing at the bit to show him. It’s a brief letter from none other than John Lennon, sent to him 40-years ago with words of encouragement on keeping it real and complementing his talent when he was just starting out. Somehow it never got to him and Frank has bought it off a collector after verifying it. Danny loves the present and soon contemplating its meaning, then and now. Lennon obviously thought he was very good, no bigger compliment.

      Soon after the party he discovers his girlfriend has a lover, who he is not really that bothered about, but can’t get the letters sentiment out of his head that he has wasted too many years not producing new music to the level of the songwriter Lennon knew him as. Its time for a late midlife crisis as Danny tells Frank to cancel the rest of the tour and ship his piano out to an obscure New Jersey hotel so he can start writing again. Frank, thinking its phase and will pass, agrees, Danny pitching up at the local Holiday Inn on the outskirts of Trenton, New Jersey, much to the shock of the staff and pretty day manager Mary Sinclair (Annette Bening). He announces at reception he will be staying for a while and begins composing in his room.

      Mary Sinclair: I'm sorry, are you on drugs?
      Danny Collins: Currently or in general?

      Danny is soon chating Marry up in his charismatic way but she knows it’s all an act but flattering in its own way. A bit of normality is what Danny is looking for in his life and hopes it will inspire his songwriting. Mary is impressed by the story of the letter, proudly framed and perched on his $35,000 dollar Steinway. Danny also wants to take this timeout to make things right with his son from his third marriage, Tommy (Bobby Cannavale), why Danny is really in New Jersey, Tommy’s wife Samantha (Jennifer Garner) as equally surprised to see her famous father-in-law pitch up at the family home when her husband is at work. She is not looking forward to phoning the news to her hubby. But Danny has a lot of emotions to offload and so decides to spend the day with them to try and fix things.


      I wasn’t really sure I would enjoy this but I did. Yes AP’s turn is very hammy and the film somewhat too nice at times but its joyous fun and you enjoy Pacino’s company, in full chest wig mood, Tony Ferrino style. The script is smarter than, and not as cheesy as, it appears and has a real heart to it. This is Pacinos most endearing turn for ages, reminding how engaging an actor he once was. He is only 5ft 7’ and so only suited to certain roles and that’s when his star shines and that sexy voice growls. The rest of the classy cast is mere window dressing. This is no real narrative of note here other than pursuit of the maudlin to draw an audience and so you need to enjoy it as a mood piece.

      For its Pacino light $10m budget it lost money and bombed at $8 million. I’m guessing his core and more cerebral audience drew parallels with his character and how Pacinos career was living of past glories and gave this a miss. Tony Montono playing piano in Vegas? I had certainly not seen or hard of any publicity for this movie on TV or magazine ads. This is really the legacy of Blockbuster Videos’ collapse, a company that was quite literally the shop window for the film industry. Today people go to the movies to see the big blockbuster films and maybe watch the medium sized ones they missed on their satellite package. Very few people are looking for the smaller movies like this that are not signposted. I don’t have a movie package so have to trawl through top 100 lists online to find these films on places like Amazon Market place and buy them at under a quid, with postage, over two quid all in. I then flip them at CEX Exchange to claw a bit back. I’m not asking Pacino for a thankyou letter like the one John Lennon sent but it would be nice if Hollywood had physical high street rental somehow, other than the small range of films at the dusty local library.

      So if you like a gentle sentimental tale with a charismatic lead and a middle aged romance or two then you will enjoy this. There is no real reason you should but it s just a nice experience. The kitsch Danny Collins ‘hits’ from the film actually featured on the movie soundtrack and Baby Doll sounding remarkably like Sweet Caroline. The suggestion was Danny Collins character was based on a cross between our very own Rod Stewart and Barry Manilow. Just take this film for what it is and you will enjoy it.

      -Behind the Scenes-

      Pacino doesn’t contribute but the folk singer chap dos, the only interesting bit here.


      Some Danny Collins tunes from the film, Steve Coogan style!


      Little White Lies –‘Return to sender’.

      Chicago Times –‘The story works because it's told like a catchy pop song that doesn't try to be more than what it is’.

      The Baltimore Sun –‘What could have been a cheap piece of hackwork becomes a pleasing little trifle, thanks to its actors.

      The Observer –‘Pacino delivers his best turn in a very long time, hiding the fact that he can't even carry a tune behind a magnetic presence that screams "star".

      The Independent –‘Danny is a role tailor-made for Pacino at this stage in his career, one that enables him both to indulge in some very hammy scene-stealing, but also to show his character's vulnerability and essential decency’.

      Cinema.com –‘Even if Pacino's singing voice leaves much to desired, his performance doesn't. Much like the film itself, it's all in the execution’.

      Red Eye –‘There's undeniable humanity and gentle humor running through this tale of redemption’.

      South China Morning Post –‘There is so much goodwill in Danny Collins that even its characters' struggles are made to feel frothy.

      The Guardian –‘Pacino is good company, keeping his more mannered Pacinoisms in check, but none of it feels like a stretch for him.

      • "Good voice acting"

      • "Very linear"

      A fun little game for young kids

      Ratatouille is a straightforward platformer and if you're a genre snob who holds their selections to higher standards, you might find yourself peeved with the title's general lack of originality. You explore environments, scurrying around corners when necessary. You jump on objects and tail-swipe enemies. You balance across high wires or sniff out your next objective. It's all in there, ripped directly from the Book of Platformers, if ever there was such a work. Ratatouille even includes the obligatory platformer sliding levels -- in this case Remy barrels down the insides of a giant piping system. You won't often run through a doorway into some new world or gameplay mechanic you have never seen before, which is a valid complaint.

      But perhaps that's too harsh. Ratatouille was clearly made for small children who watched the Disney film and enjoyed it. As a children's game, it does its job. It entertains, has decent replay value and enough variation in levels to prevent little kids from getting bored with the game play. However, innovative or not, Ratatouille is usually fun and entertaining, two truths that we attribute to tight control and smart, varied levels designs. You move Remy effortlessly through the sewer systems, city streets, kitchens and dream worlds he inhabits using the analog stick and while the game play is very linear, you do get some nice environments and decent renderings.

      The voice acting and cutscenes stay true to the original film as well. The voice actors do a great job of recreating the scenes from the film and the game engine holds up well enough to not make the characters look like dated monstrosities.

      Kids games are usually an excuse for video game companies to make a bad product and expect kids to soak it up. However, Ratatouille is an okay game. It isn't groundbreaking or innovative buts it functions well and is a fun little game to play if your child has some time to kill. Adults may not get a kick out of this game, but little children will enjoy it's simplicity and story.

      • "Bits and bobs of 2016"


      • "Bad year"

      The bits and bobs of 2016

      So what a year it has been on this ‘bonkers’ old planet and what an even crazier year it will be in 2017 because of. This week President Donald Trump will have his finger on the nuclear trigger, a truly terrifying thought, and Britain will begin leaving the European Union, even more terrifying for some. We don’t seem to have a plan for either. Here is my A-Z of how it played out and my thoughts on it…

      A is for Andy Woodward

      The ex Crewe and Sheffield Wednesday player made an accusation that he was sexually abused at Crewe by convicted pedophile and football coach Barry Bethall back in the 1980s.This triggered a rush of similar claims from similar players against multiple clubs. At this stage 30 London clubs alone have been accused. That seems absurd. Over 151 clubs in total have received complaints from over 850 people on the NSPCC lines alone. The question now is how many are true? After the council agreed to pay out for the Lambeth kids home scandal of the late 1970s and 1980s, any kid there whilst a convicted pedophile was there CAN now apply for compensation, whether abused or not. you can guess just how many people will now bang in a claim. The Shirley Oaks Survivors group of just over 700 people were the ones that have been causing all the problems at the Historic Sexual Abuse Hearings. The proceedings have been hijacked by ambulance chasing lawyers that are puling groups together to drum up class actions in pursuit of compensation so nothing actually getting done to prevent future abuse and convict the bad guys, hence the resignations. A lot of people from carehomes lead troubled lives thereafter and in need of cash. Children’s homes across the nation are being accused and the payouts are big for some adults. Woodward’s group has over 2000 ‘abused adults’ in it so far and that would be one huge class action payout against mega rich football. clubs who don’t want the bad publicity. I’m sure a lot of kids were abused back then but the numbers don’t add up. What people generally don’t know is Woodward was sacked after 13 years as a policeman just one week before he went public with his accusations, and sacked for an inappropriate relationship with a victim of crime. That will come out in the court case. He will want to be paid off before the court case. There are other lurid and somewhat ironic allegations about him also online involving younger girls. His new girlfriend is organizing the collections for his foundation. It’s just too expensive for organizations and businesses to contest each of these cases in the high court and so have to agree compensation at a lower figure than those lawyers’ fees, whether abuse took place or not. This is why whiplash claims are so high.

      B is for Brexit

      The big dark secret is that majority of white English people of all classes voted Brexit, that number disguised in the final vote by the high urban Remain vote, the ethnic vote. If N.Ireland and Scotland had NOT voted tactically Remain to keep their EU subsidies it would have been 60/40 leave. You didn’t think it would happen but everyone you asked how they would vote said OUT, certainly around our way. It dawned on me on voting day evening as hysteria gathered towards a nailed on ‘In’ vote that the 10-1 on meant value on OUT, so a couple of quid placed and 15 in the pocket the next day. Brexit is probably going to cost the EU a hell of a lot more than that when we finally leave but it’s happened so we have to back it, as the Brexit crowd would begrudgingly accept a Remain vote.

      C is for Celebrity deaths

      It’s been an incredible year for losing our heroes. It started off slowly with the death of freaks Pete Burns and David Guest and none that bothered but then a crescendo of big stars fell in the spring with the loss of Bowie and Prince in music and then the death of Alan Rickman and Gene Wilder in film, and then Muhammad Ali and then George Michael on Christmas Day. The rich seam of drugs mined in the 1970s and 80s by the great and the good behind closed doors had caught up with them and they went down like flies. The specter of AIDS also hangs heavily over showbiz in the 90s. Rick Parfitt can hardly complain his ticker wasn’t up to a general anesthetic after all the coke he snorted, no doubt having an extra shot when the nurse wasn’t looking. Leonard Cohen was a miserable old sod and better suited to the infinity of death and Caroline Ahearn really didn’t deserve to go at just 52. Spok and Chekov departed from the Enterprise to join Princess Leia and R2D2 (Kenny Baker) in space heaven and Victoria Wood and Carla Lane joined Ronnie Corbett and Paul Daniels in the old showbiz rest home in the sky. 2017 kicked of with the death of England manger Graham Taylor and Paul Gascoigne a fag paper away from following.

      D is for Drugs

      Most Russian athletes have been doping since just after the war and it took until 2016 to finally do something about it. The Cold War put in place state doping programs to make one side look stronger than the other on the sports fields and the Americans as guilty. Putin has rebooted the Cold War and so Russia back to its old ways. After Russia were rightfully humiliated over it they hit back and hacked sports bodies computers here, revealing a massive rise in Therapeutic Use Exemptions, the so called TUE’s , loopholes that allow athletes to take banned drugs in sports where they need them to compete because they have are supposed to have a certain medical condition. 70% of the British Olympic swimming team in London 2012 claimed to have asthma so they can take certain banned stimulants. TUEs also allowed obvious cheaters to keep racing and a way out for sports bodies not to ban those star athletes that were guaranteeing their lottery funding, Bradley Wiggins an example of.

      E is for the Economy

      Post Brexit and the economy is flying and the stock market at a record high, the Project Fear people admitting they had a Michael Fish moment and got it completely wrong on Britain’s impending economic collapse. You can’t blame them for being scared about leaving Europe as no one really knows how it will all play out but what the ‘experts’ did know before the vote is the stockmarket could only rise because most of the Footsie 100 is 70% dollar value and so the companies would grow like the rise in the dollar. Those experts have also said the pound has been overvalued and a correction was needed, a correction that is helping to pay down the deficit through low interest rates on money exchanges. Brtian is one big pound shop right now and, ironically, everyone wants to buy from us, including Europe.

      F is for Fix

      The surprise winner of Strictly Come Dancing caught everyone out, including the studio audience, and equally surprised and muted applause to be heard as the gasps at home. When the public vote on Sports Personality of the Year the final vote count is released to the public. Not even a freedom of information act could get the vote breakdown from the BBC for Strictly. They simply would no release the numbers after Ore Oduba’s surprise win in the final. Ore was a little known BBC TV sports reporter and appeared to be in the show to make up the ethic quota, perhaps statistically insuring a black person in the final three. The BBC are under huge pressure to be more ‘representative’ of the British public with their programming and talent and that means affirmative action and racial, gender and sexuality quotas. Did they rig the result to let the black guy win? Why were the bookies bang on with SPOTTY and so wrong with the 123 here? Expect the same in Let it Shine.

      G is for Global Warming

      The Earth had its hottest year ever but not in England, yet another OK summer and mild autumn. But just as scientific consensus in the 1970s was for a coming Ice Age as world temps dropped over a 15-year period that hysteria returned in the end of the last century after a particular hot 10 years. How man made pollution was responsible for the hot temps of the 1990s and not the cold temps of the 1960s has not yet been cleared up. The truth is world temps have plateaud but CO2 levels keep rising and that doesn’t fit the narrative anymore. I think most people are in favor of a warmer world. We just have to adjust our lives to the temp rises as there is no way we are going to stop the third world having babies and so population rising out of control, the only problem here.

      H is for Lewis Hamilton

      I know a couple of lads who work at Mercedes F1 garage and they say Nico Rosberg was ‘contracted’ a world title. He was been threatening to leave the team for a while if they didn’t deliver that title. Well he is world champion now and there is no doubt in my mind the team ‘hurt’ Hamilton wheels to achieve that. Exactly the same parts are used on both cars and for some reason Hamilton’s were going wrong at the start of the season to allow Rosberg to win so many races. When that stopped in the final third of the season Lewis powered back by winning the final few races to lose the championship by a handful of points. Hamilton would have been world champion under nay of the previous ten points system in F1. What a stitch up! But the Mercedes boys have lost their chief designer and may not be top dogs next year so an interesting season to some with this wider and faster cars.

      I is for Iceland

      That ludicrous defeat of England in the European Championships was the sporting lowlight of the year. They are a financially broke island of a population of just 330,000 to England’s 52 million. They only have 50,000 men under the age of 30 to pick from and most of them are fisherman. England were terrified of them and there most disastrous exit yet of an international tournament. Fear for an international athlete is when you reach the point of no return find it easier to turn back to the safety of your millions, big houses and white trophy girlfriends as reassurance that all is well.

      J is Jobs

      Whilst Europe continues to stagnate the British economy rages. The reason is simple -.immigrants are coming here to work, not sign on. Most new businesses in the UK in the last ten years have been immigrant ones, as have the workers, Polish shops selling Polish sausage to Polish people. If you can’t sign on here then why come? Secondly the Tories have hammered the long term unemployed, many committing suicide, and some forced back to employment or training of sorts and so off the negative stats. Some even went to the EU to sign on to get less hassle. I signed in 2012 for a bit and it was brutal. But the cruel to be kind method s is working and we are approaching a record low 1.5 million unemployed. But because of mass immigration, wages have collapsed and ten Lithuanian truckers willing to work cheap to every British lorry driver trying to pay his mortgage only means on thing. At least when we leave the EU wages will rise as labor becomes scarcer.

      K is for Kim Kardashain

      The non entity of a celebrity ‘broke the internet’ again with her’ bad skin’ last week. After the rather dubious robbery in her hotel room her psoriasis skin condition has got worse and spread to her face. That and her fat ass are her selling points and so it’s serious. I do believe she was robbed though as we forget all the images and film we see or here from that family are controlled and edited and so nothing like what really happens in their life. Because her and her husband are so recognizable it’s often the case with celebrities like that they spend most of their life hidden away in a rather mundane life. She probably doesn’t want to be exposed to real people and so criticism. It’s quite possible some gnarly Eastern European crooks did the homework by watching the show and thought she was an easy target with lazy security easy to bribe. Yes, it could have all been a put up PR job but either way her face is swollen up like a baboon’s ass.

      L is for the Leicester City

      It’s still hard to believe they won the Premiership. They actually won the bloody title! Why they won seemed to be down to the tactic of the old ropeadope of leaning on the ropes to soak up the punches to burnout your opponent and then hop the ball over the top to Mahrez, who gave it to Vardy, who smashed it past the keeper. Clearly teams learnt their lesson this season and blocked the Foxes only tactic and Leicester City could be the first champions since Manchester City in 1968 to be relegated the following season. Whether the Foxes doped to win the league is not being discussed but it’s noticeable that when the Blood Passport drug testing system was introduced in the Champions League in 2015 it meant you could not dope in your domestic leagues during the Champions League groups stages or you could be caught. European domestic leagues tend to drug test in - house and so you tend not to hear about the fails, certainly the case in the English Premier League. This meant the big four in England were being tested vicariously in the Premier League with results they couldn’t control. Chelsea were dreadful in that first year of ECL testing and City, Arsenal, Liverpool and United all failed to get over 75 points, the first time that had happened in 25 years.

      M is for Theresa May

      Cameron had to go for holding the insane EU vote, let alone for losing it. Theresa May’s promotion to the top job was the obvious favorite and Britain having its second female PM and so far she is doing rather well, a sexy and powerful older woman to some. I’m not a sexist when it comes to women in power and if you can do the job you should be doing the job. I am, however, against women who put men down because feminist won’t address the fact that most women choose not to be in power or have careers and like being moms and is nothing to do with men being sexist if we agree with that.

      N is for Nuclear

      A shocking and little seen ITV documentary revealed the unbelievable state of the Sellafield reprocessing site up north. It’s officially the most hazardous place in Europe now, the $4 billion spent by Europe and the world to entomb Chernobyl not being spent in Cumbria. You would think it would be an orderly place with people in white protective suits and men with clipboard making sure this deadly waste was disposed of safely and neatly. In reality it looked like a council tip in a derelict building site where stuff was generally dumped where there was a space for it. One of the old cooling towers was full of radioactive stuff just piled in haphazardly inside the lead sealed structure; bits of junk that had become radioactive through the conversion process to nuclear fuel all around the country and bought here. There was no way technicians could access the area if the stuff became unstable and toppled. One impact from a plane and the whole of Cambria would have to be evacuated. Even worse was the containment lakes outside, drone footage showing weeds all around them and the concrete basins clearly cracking. There was no doubt some of the water that covered the extremely radioactive waste was leaking out into the ground. And Security was lax, presumably on the premise no terrorist would be stupid enough to come to this place and so be irradiated by plutonium. It’s the same old healthy & safety story that we can keep cutting money here until something bad happens, in this case really bad.

      O is for the Olympics

      And a record medal haul shows that if you throw money at sport you get success. We again dominate the middle class sports where the thing you are holding or underneath you does most of the work and a university sport. But it was a good Games in Rio and although the crowds were average still an excellent TV experience. Sadly the Tories are continuing this paradoxical policy of cutting funding to the sports that don’t win medals and so the sports who most need the funding. Badminton’s 100% cut was a real shock though, especially as they won gold in the doubles.

      P is for President Trump

      Trump was Americas Brexit, simple as. Yes, Donald Trump is going to be the leader of the free world!!! The left failed to protect jobs, pay and conditions and so the people took their chance at the ballot box. Yes, it was mostly a vote on immigration and Obamacare helping the blacks more than the whites but that right hate vote alone was not enough to swing it. Did Obama not win the last election? In America’s case it was surprising, women voting against a woman president, 52/48% across the country, Hilary cheating on her man having a bigger impact than Trumps comical womanizing. Americans are not the brightest. Either way its bloody terrifying that non tax paying Trump, a three time bankrupt narcissist, will have his finger on the nuclear trigger. Hold on to the rails folks! Politics is well and truly dead.

      Q is for the Queen

      She has a bad cold over the Christmas period and a non show for the public. To commentators it was because she is old and much weaker but to me it’s preparing the way for abdication. She is 90 now and has cut her ties to 25 big charities and organizations. As soon as William and Harry got their bald spots and started to lose their looks the pressure was on to get married and we have to remember the Royal Family is a business now and they need to churn out new and babies, pretty princess and cut baby boys to stay relevant. If the Queen dies on the job it may have a devastating effect on the Royal product but if she is phased out and Charles is ignored then we could have a young King and Queen this decade for once. Its 6/1 abdication odds this year folks!

      R is for Rodrigo Dutertc

      If you think Trump is bad then met The Philippines President. Rodrigo Dutertc likes to throw criminals out of military helicopters for fun and claims to have killed 30 drug dealers so far in his presidency. If you want a zero tolerance on drugs then this is your guy. Over 13,000 people have been murdered for their involvement in the drug trade their in his first year, some for just using, and some in the wrong place at the wrong time.

      S is for Syria and the right result in the end with a home win. America and the west have had no real issue with Assad in charge and agreed Russian influence there since the 1970s, if they were being honest, and by not doing anything to end the war they knew Russia would eventually turn the war Syria’s way and end this carnage. There is no oil in Syria and Russia simply there to keep a foothold in the region. Putin produces half the world’s gas and a fifth of the words oil and they need to keep that barrel price high as their economy depends on it. When the price is low they always lash out. The US and OPEC are trying to put them in their place with a low oil price, simple as.

      T is for Terrorism

      Since 911 we have been at war with Islam. We are not allowed to recognize that as we are called racist. Saudi Arabia are pouring billions of oil money into the worlds mosques and Islamic bias schools to teach a version of west hating Islam. Terror attacks in Turkey prove that Islamic fault lines are being held for now but truck attacks in Germany and France show that just about any angry Muslim, for whatever reason, could take it out on innocent people with those bombs, many of them Muslims. France prison population is now 70% Muslim, 45% in Belgium and 43% in Holland. 44% of Britain’s Category A prisoners are Muslim. 85% of Switzerland’s prisoners are foreign nationals and most of them Muslim. Many of Europe’s imprisoned Muslims are there for Islamic terrorism or gang crime, crime and Islam dovetailing more and more every year. ISIS are being allowed to stay around in the Middle East as we can draw all the hardcore Muslim fanatics into one place and f**k them up, as we are doing. It’s great for arms sales to. But the cocaine trade is now run by Muslim as it moves through West Africa on that migration corridor, the Patriot Act bringing in money laundering laws in 2003 that seriously stemmed cock coming up through Mexico into the US.

      U is for Usain BOLT

      The great man did the triple double, Olympic gold and silver in the 100m & 200m in three straight Olympics, and added three relay gold’s on top. It’s an incredible feat and will never be rivaled in sprints for me. A man who could rival the feat on the track has joined Bolt in Olympic track retirement, Mo Farah, strictly marathon next time around. Where as British people love Bolt and think he isn’t a cheat, they think Mo probably is a cheat and certainly not British, failing to feature heavily in the Sports Personality voting year in year out. He deserves to win but always feeds the doubt by not wanting to live in England and share the team’s digs at events. He always thanks God and his family first and his fans last. Bolt is the true king and now lives in England with those same drug testers.

      V is for Viola Beach

      They were a little known indie band from the north of England heading for better things. Unfortunately they decided to smash through no fewer then three safety barriers in their hire car and slice the top of their car and heads off when they hit the raised bridge, sending the car into an icy Swedish river at 3 am to finish off the remaining two lads barely alive from the original catastrophic impact. The autopsy revealed no drugs or illegal levels of booze in their blood. Had they been watching too many movies and thought they could jump across what they thought was a drawbridge style bridge or was it suicide by the band manager driving the car? All the evidence points to the lads not remotely slowing down to the traffic around them and actually swerved neatly into the lane that was clear to the raised bridge section. The music business gushed tributes thereafter and fine words were said, as yet, none willing to blame the guys.

      W is for Wimbledon

      So Andy won it again and a load of other things to, including the coveted world number one spot. You have to play a hell of a lot of tennis and win those games to stay ahead of Djokovic. But since the Meldonium thing and Sharpova in the spring, Novak’s form collapsed and he won just one event after the French Open that gave him all four slams at once. He looks a prime candidate to be doping. The loophole was conveniently there for the players to take Meldonium, even though they didn’t have the condition it’s prescribed for and so it will be exploited by players and tennis will cover up positive results. Over 700 Russian athletes alone were believed to be on it in 2015. When someone like Sharpova naively comes out publicly to say she has failed a drugs test then tennis has to also own up there has been a positive. But she knows where the bodies are buried and has had her ban slashed. If she had kept stum it would have been a silent six month ban, the type Nadal receives, allegedly.

      X is for the X chromosome

      Governments and lawmakers in the West are beginning to legislate for the ‘third sex. Pratt Russell Brand has said he will bring up his kids as ‘gender neutral’, and in the toilet blocks in some U.S states have had to provide a cubicle for ‘in-betweens’ as men who want to become women don’t want to pee in the Men’s and the women don’t want them in the Ladies as they have men’s bits. Put simply a lot of people who are legally Trans are going to start suing the sh&t out of everything that they see as prejudice against their gender. I have always thought men who want to be women are gay and its away around accepting that and people who want to be gender neutral are persuaded by other people. Tran’s people are such a small percentage of the world but, as ever, a US reality show around the life of Bruce Jenner, has made it cool and an irrationally big story and issue.

      Y is for the Yorkshire

      A young couple lost their beloved dog to cancer. They missed him so much they went online. They discovered you could get pets cloned in South Korea (no eating dog jokes please) and paid 60 grand for the duplication. Low and behold the puppy grew up to look just like their last dog. It’s unclear if it was just another puppy from the same breed and they had been tucked up but if they believe its real then that’s all that maters. It won’t be long until humans are secretly cloned though, within the next five years they say. Imagine ten Donald Trumps!

      Z is for Zika

      Every year we are scared rotten by an infection disease and as the final Ebola cases died out it was a mosquito spread one this time around, young mums to be the most fearful. It was believed the bug spread bug has caused the deformed baby syndrome in some cases. Babies are meant to be cute, the main reason to have them. Athletes used the extremely small chance of catching it to doge the Rio Olympics perhaps fearing a differing kind of blood test. The bulked up Rory Macilroy refused to go, golf a sport where they are rarely tested, Olympic testing very different…

      • "None (yet)"

      There's nothing I'd change about my PC Specialist experience

      PC Specialist was initially recommended to me by a colleague when I spoke to him about NOT wanting to pay for features I didn't want in a "standard" computer from PC World etc.. I initially sought a quote online in order to find the cost of my ideal configuration. I thought about it for about two weeks, during which time I received just one e-mail from PC Specialist - just a gentle reminder, so I wasn't hassled or chased to place an order. I sought advice from colleagues who I consider to be experts, and they all thought both the spec and the price were good, so I proceeded with an order. I received several e-mail updates overt he next few days and, within a week, I have my new machine, exactly as ordered, but much more quickly than I'd anticipated. The packaging was substantial and effective, the unpacking and "assembly" process (it's an AIO) easy, and the end result excellent. I am very pleased with my new PC, and very impressed with the speed and quality of service from PC Specialist. I have already recommended the service to several friends and colleagues, and I have confirmed the view of my colleague who originally recommended PC Specialist.

      • Stealth

      A great game that didn't get the recognition it deserved

      Shadow of Rome is a game that had it all. You could brutally murder gladiators in Rome, use stealth to trespass into a Roman senate and compete against other gladiators in chariot races. Sadly, Shadow of Rome was one of the PS2 games that became almost totally forgotten, despite the wide range of game play it offered, even if the game play was frustrating at times.

      The action side of Shadow of Rome is fantastic. The arena levels of the game are a gory, hack and slash spectacular. As Agrippa, you'll use a plethora of weapons to dismember and murder rival gladiators in a bid to become the best, appealing to those who love combat heavy game play. With a number of different combos and moves, the arena levels are a huge amount of fun to play as you will always find a new way to murder your opponent and make the crowd fall in love with you. Enemies (particularly if you're playing on hard mode), have a lot of health and deal a lot of damage, so you should also find yourself challenged to survive the round in the arena. Dodging, dirty tricks and pleading to the crowd add an extra dimension of realism and add extra pressure as you try to not only fight, but to survive.

      The story of Shadow of Rome is one shrouded by mystery for the player to uncover. Centred around the death of Julius Caesar, the player must infiltrate various areas around Rome to find the truth behind the murder and the conspiracy behind it. The story is interesting enough to keep the player engaged and brings in enough characters (including senators, pirates, Egyptians and Germans) to keep you wondering 'whodunnit?'. Whilst the story is engaging, the stealth aspect which goes alongside it is somewhat weaker.

      During the stealth aspect of the game, you control Octavianus, nephew of the late Caesar and friend to Agrippa. While the character of Octavianus is not bad necessarily, he suffers because he is, simply put, not as cool as Agrippa. While Agrippa can tear men limb from limb, Octavianus is forced to sneak around and evade Roman soldiers, whilst being completely unable to defend himself if things go awry. The stealth aspect in Shadow of Rome plays out like Metal Gear Solid (with Octavianus even looking a little like Raiden). You sneak behind soldiers, you disguise yourself in robes and uniforms and crawl through little tunnels. Sadly, without any defence and overly suspicious guards, the stealth in the game becomes very tedious very quickly. Luckily, the sections are short and are guaranteed by a bloody arena battle afterwards.

      In short, what the game lacks in good stealth, it more than makes up for in story and action. Fans of Devil May Cry and other hack and slash games will almost certainly enjoy the game and get a sick kick out of turning a Roman gladiator into a 'Juicy Tomato'.

      In conclusion Its worth the purchase if well cared for.

      The Iphone 5s is a nice phone it's easy to use very stylish good size for handling, brilliant to watch things on as it has a very clear display, camera quality is fairly good, very secure with touch id, sound and speaker and fairly good, looks sleek and fashionable.

      Battery life isn't too good but better than previous phones I've owned, it sometimes get hot when being used for long periods of time, it scratches easily and is easily damaged and I've experienced app crashes.
