Its very quiet on here again today. So I guess some folk are busy shopping for "Black Friday" deals towards Christmas.
More imported American shit that has found its way into Europe. Hahahahahahaha !!!!
No disrespect meant to my American friends but ...... Well you know.

I agree David, a crass idea, but it has fell on it's face up here in the North of Britain, don't get me wrong, I think the American
folk on the whole are great, but these fast buck things that appear, are not British, if you know what I mean. I don't wish to
appear racist, but when reported last year I think it was, all the aggro was between the Commonwealth Brits, not the Indigenous
ones, fighting over telly's etc, how demeaning. Are there any programmes on telly worth fighting over, and I used to love a mill,
but seriously.

I only wished Germany and in particular, Wittners had had a Black Friday event, British, German or any other European tradition or not!

Ouch!!!

Black Friday is the biggest load of American bollocks to hit our lands and as usual all the sheep in this country follow suit. For those that dont seem to get it here is the run down of a year in Britain,
Boxing Day, Adverts on Telly for summer holidays & also shop sales.
The winter sale never to be repeated
The spring sale hurry before it ends
The Easter never to be repeated sales,
The late spring sales never to be repeated, hurry before it all goes,
The summer sales,
The blue cross event,(several through out the year)
The Autumn season sale, up to 70% off never to be repeated, hurry before it ends,
The Winter Sale now on never to be repeated,
& now we have Black Friday for all you sad twats to come along and buy all the cheap crap that the shops just need to get shot of which is generally cheaper on line throughout the year anyway.
For anyone who remember seeing the disgraceful show that the public put on last year fighting over what was the crappiest cheap polaroid Televisions sets that probably didn't work when they got home due to the fights over them. Maybe its me but i couldn't help noticing that most of them didn't appear to be of our race??
Did i miss one out?

I' m not going to stand in judgement of these poor individuals that are here in our midst, but it isn't the way in Britain, at least
not the way when I was a lad, if someone has a hold of an item before you, you must give way, it is not proper to fight over said
item. I have always been a gentleman at various conventions, but these carry on's leave me at a loss

David you are not alone, one time I was at a convention, holding a CD of Hammer Film music, a chap was eagerly waiting by my side,
I placed it in his hands, that is my way, the way I was brought up, the British way, manners maketh the man, but I can still handle
myself, let it be known, good manners is not soft, just manners.....

David, unfortunately we live in a time where people eat on the streets, in my time it was after the pictureshow , now it is in the mornings,dinnertimes, and thereon, not the BRITISH way, disgusting, and from a builder feel I'm insulted. This "COOL" anything goes,
channel 4 attitude, bugs me, I want to smack them, I'm capable, shocked my better half, who dismissed me as "idiot", but can do the bis,
I hate this throwaway attitude, it comes from the USA, no disrespect to our American members that I hold in very high regard, but
it is not our way, but "our way" is diluted by other ethnics that know no other way. Hence the erosion of the BRITISH WAY. Bloody
Foreigners, Eat, drink coffee at home, before work!!! Third World Britain, and the suckers can't see it!!! SLAVES!!!!

100% Hugh. Imagine if Ealing was like that the second the doors opened!
Even our own language. Is becoming Americanism with words being abbreviated.
Black Friday is a day I don't buy anything.have you seen the black Friday no buy movement?
I see on the news this morning most shops are keeping the sales going till the end of the year.
I wonder how many dim wits fell for it again on Friday. Dickheads all of them.

Were those TV instant pictures? Like Halloween police should stop it. Why Black Friday? Didn't the UK have Black Monday. And don't forget its Cyber Monday too.

Sad to say had to buy a new TV Friday.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

Maybe the forum should organise its own Black Friday FILM SALES somewhere.
Lets see what happens when that "so-called" RARE PRINT comes up at bargain price. hahahahaha !!!!
Can you imagine what may happen ?
