Costa Georgiadis is the new Peter Cundall (big shoes)
We used to have a great gardener name of Crockett who was all over our Nat Pub TV . He died and everybody since has been a disappointment.
Just noticed that I posted this earlier: "No one, absolutely no one is capable of filing Peter's huge shoes.... "

It would be difficult - I would have to choose between
Shoes - Cundall, Peter - Huge
Cundall, Peter - Shoes - Huge
The far right likes to spread 'political correctness gone mad,' stories like this because they actually
believe them. They like to portray themselves as an embattled group fighting for the same freedoms that
darker skinned people have because it gives them a heroic quality.
In many ways this is the worst sort of distortion of the truth because people like Bootlace lap it up.
During the heady days of Thatcherism the Daily Mail printed a story about how 'loony left,'
councils in London banned the singing of Bah Bah Black Sheep in schools. This was a complete lie,
but it was believed by a lot of people, and not just the far right. It was even accepted by more
traditional northern socialists, because the lie had been told so often.
The BBC reported in 2000 that Birmingham City Council had banned the song for being racist. It was later
overturned after a backlash from parents.
The council said it had obtained the guidelines, which stated: "The history behind the rhyme is very
negative and also very offensive to black people, due to
the fact that the rhyme originates from slavery".
Six years later in 2006, a nursery in Sutton Courtenay in Britain banned the nursery rhyme.
I just had look for sugar spheres on Google. Sigh. Bootlace's informant couldn't even get the fake story right.
It was Seattle last year and it was bullshit then too.
I think it's particularly hilarious because serious Christians despise the Easter Eggs tradition too.
They never do believe you ....
Because their prejudices sound so much better, so much credible (to them) than the truth.
The stories I have heard about the lurks & perks asylum seekers receive!
You wouldn't believe.
Of course, what these folks really want to say but can't (in Oz, anyway) is that they despise Muslims&
feel threatened by them.
Oh yes, & "turn back the boats!", too.
Let those pesky asylum seekers drown in the ocean, anything, rather than allow Muslims &
other suspicious foreign riff-raff find a new home here!
