Capitalism is Man Exploiting Man; Communism is just the opposite

    The funny thing is I've just been to the cinema to see Borat (very disappointing) and I'm always amazed to see those CLASSY Sky ads…you know, the ones with no voiceover. (The new one has a voiceover at the end.) And the one they had with footage from an Elvis concert. They've come a long way from Manimal and Land of the Giants. I remember when Sky started, me and my brothers waiting for AGES to see the Transformers cartoon, in an agony of excitement. I thought all the programmes were actually broadcast from a studio in a satellite.

    We have to get back to being able to criticise capitalism without people tittering.

    I was on a bus once that was stopped because a lady phoned the gardai, to complain that some yoofs were smoking cannabis. A drunken guy, who wasn't with them but seemed to have felt some kind of allegiance (and ended up getting dragged off, too) kept shouting, "Chucky ar law!" (I don't know the Gaelic spelling) as a general observation, when the lady was berating him.

  2. Hear! Hear! I'm not sure who should be first up against the wall; those Sky Bastards, the sports organisations who organise the sell-out or our own government for not simply putting important sporting occasions on a list so that they can't be sold off like second-hand curtains.

  3. Sky. Sky should be first.

    Although once we are getting digital, so maybe I should put myself agin the wall? Don't think we get Sky Sports, but maybe the games are watchable through the pay just for this match thingy? Hmmm, maybe a bit of research was called for before we rang NTL and said yes, fill our days with more pointless station-surfing and discovering that there really is nothing on but Friends, South Park and some form of watered down news.
