Chris Yates, Adidas, and a skater


Recommended Posts

Defo the oddest partnership I've seen in a while. I follow Adidas (I have a thing for retro Adidas track tops) and Palace (I was as much a skater in my youth as I was an angler) and I was speechless when I came across this vid back in MAY, I thought it was some kind of wind up.

Lovely vid though innit.

Yeah it was just great to see the crossover between two completely different people, kind of like how it should be in great Britain ✌️

it does work both ways, i have never been interested in chris's angling due to his middle class personality, i always expect them to be very conservative at least, it has caused me problems when you meet otherwise nice people but just pretty much blank them, then again you get people in angling that went to the private school got a great life but constantly insult those that live with any gov help, a certain someone had a pop at me due to him thinking i had a council end salary pension, he seems to think the pensions are a perk of the job, they really aint, back in the 1990's it was 50 odd notes a month out your wages for a low end civil servants pension, they are not cheap and certainly not a perk.

I think you may find that a lot of learned middle class folk like Chris Yates are more likely to be die hard socialists tbh, I'm just guessing with him tbh, but he doesn't strike me as a tory more of someone that would enjoy being the opposition more than being part of the status quo, 

I think like me what you have learnt to hate is tories👍 your from cov aren't you?, you have the future of socialism as your MP she is one of my favourites , 👍

she seems ok but most of the socialists in coventry couldn't run a canteen raffle, they make a lot of noise but don't really do much Zarah is nice but she will back any cause that is the underdog didn't learn from all that baggage corbyn carries.

It's the ones like her we need to keep in though, history will prove Corbyn wasn't a bad leader, but he was victim of a media hate campaign against him,there was a yougov thing last week where they stopped releasing polls results when Corbyn was looking favourite to win, the older I get the more socialist I seem to become, loving Mick Lynch at the moment

Very interesting video that & Elmo/Carpbell, I'd love to sit down on the bank with both of you for a cuppa and chew the fat. I think we are from either ends of the political spectrum, but I would hope we could have a decent chat about the things wrong in this world, starting with the current crop of Tories, their complete lack of direction and their erosion of everyone's rights and liberties. :D

same as, i did used to do a lot of window cleaning on the big houses in warwick distance relatives of landed aristocracy most of them were pretty laid back, i did throw a bad strop one winter's evening, that was on a massive house owned by the new rich, i spent all day jet washing all the paving and that around the house, come the end of the day the housekeeper came out with a cuppa and a kit katt, i was like, no thanks need to get home, my gaffer hit the roof he grabbed the kit kat and scoffed it, i just told her straight i'm too hungry wet and cold for chocolate like i said i just want to get home... opps

What's most worrying and the problem with your statement is that it gives them too much credit. I don't think they're clever enough. :eek:

No but they are connected through what they can achieve for them, I mean 160k for a game of tennis, and millions of dodgy donations, means they are working for someone that isn't the average Joe on the street
