    Its to do with emissions. There's less weight so they can claim lower emissions and better fuel economy as well as saving them money.

    Sadly there's a lot that do it for their own benefit. They're usually the ones who jack it in after the kids haven't won the league and cup the previous season.

    One of my daughters first football team coaches just used to shout 'get it' , 'chase it' or 'hit it' all the time.
    Not an offensive bloke at all just completely clueless on the coaching front.

    It's a good job my daughter doesn't like playing football, I'd ensure she is like this

    People who give our England football team a hard time - they did better than expected - its a team full of players not cocky twats - i really enjoyed the World cup with my wife - its brought our first Sky Blue game much closer - i keep reminding my Derby neighbour about the last time we played at the Ricoh and Highfield road - so hopefully Nuneaton Borough will be no different !

    Is there a way to remove any reference to something called "Love Island" from my internet browser? I don't know what it is and I don't care what it is, I'm just sick of seeing it mentioned all the time.

    When I first kept hearing about it I actually misheard and I thought, yeah, I love Ireland too, lovely place, but then realised it was something quite different and in fact, a TV show.

    Doesn't bother me now so much, because I hardly ever watch ITV at all (football and that's about it) and therefore miss most references and avoid the programme itself like the plague.

    What I have heard about it saddens me. I know people love it and I'm sure it's really addictive, but, for me, it sounds like exactly the kind of show I would be never ever want to see.

    I love film and I love TV, but hate all this showbiz stuff and celeb culture and instant fame type programmes and dumbed down TV, with a passion.

    It's another one of those programmes I have on my list of never ever wishing to see.

    All my daughter's friends watch it, but luckily she's not interested.

    I'm sure if I kept hearing about it though it would definitely annoy me.

    Middle lane drivers.

    Been up and down the M1 to Luton Airport a couple of times over the last two weeks and the amount of drivers who just plonk themselves in the middle lane with no idea of the danger they are causing is ridiculous.

    Yesterday watched one driver who must have been undertook three times in the space of a minute and he just continued pootling along in the middle lane when the inside lanes were empty.

    Yeah, agree. So annoying and also this current very worrying trend of drivers now just completely ignoring red lights. See it so much in the mornings.

    People see a red light but notice there's not much traffic about and just drive straight over. Not talking about lights that have just changed or about to change, talking about driving up to traffic lights already on red and chancing it based in there doesn't seem to be much traffic about and simply driving straight over.

    Saw it three times in one morning the other day.

    Absolute madness.

    Pictures of celebrities' children being described as 'adorable' by the mainstream media. They are if you're a paedophile, to the rest of us they're just nausiating little spoiled brats.

    The reaction / media with Demi Lovato having a suspected Heroin overdose.

    Wonder if Keith and Maggie jacking up in their bedsit would get the same or if they would be just classed as junkies?

    When people randomly still eat really loud, even more so when they finished eating about 5 minutes before but are still making the same noises?

    Also, people who don't understand things but think they do and expect miracles instantly and for free. It's like me going to a garage and saying "yeah but to upgrade my fiesta to have a focus RS engine you just unbolt it and bolt a new one in, can I pick it up in an hour" and then trying to tell them how to do their jobs.

    No idea regarding Keith and Maggie's past, but Demi Lovato's is well documented, Bi-polar, eating disorder, self harm and Addiction.
    She's famous, so yes, the media are gonna be all over it.
    If you didn't know about her mental health problems, then fair enough, but a little empathy towards any human being having any addiction won't harm you.

    My point was more than because it's her, disney and singer the attitude is completely different to her having a Heroin overdose.

    Yep!

    Next One:

    People who randomly think they need to ask a question to Siri or something like that out loud so they can try and draw attention to it. I don't know why people humour them and ask.

    "find me holidays in greece"
    "oh are you going on holiday?"

    Andy Goldstein on talksport whenever he covers for somebody I normally switch off the cockney Man Utd fan, this morning he was on the equally dreadful Jim white show and I thought I would try again and he went on and on about Man Utd

    It's only ever about money. Nothing to do with capability. The company I work for has an IT support function in India. The cheap contract backfires though as our India setup has high staff turnover. I find offshoring jobs abhorrent, particularly where its taxpayer funded contracts.

    There are some decent people out there if you find them but it's just when people hire people for about $75 a week full time or something stupid and they have absolutely no idea.

    It is often people I deal with who think they can run a business where they go and sell services but just get people in India to do them, not only do they hire people out there who are cheap with no idea but they have no idea themselves. Websites turn out like old school ones with dancing babies.

    I do that sometimes but only when I know there is an exit coming up and I don't know whether it's on the left or the right, so I stay in the middle so I only need to move over one lane no matter what side it's on.
