Re: Off Topic Room 101

Hello @Mi-Amigo 

My votes are as follows

O2 community

date stamp changing to 23.00 hrs YES   (does not seem reasonable)

fastest finger first in challenges and quizzes NO ( ok as uses brain and knowledge to work finger)

Companies

Private Parking Firms Charging release fees   YES 

(unacceptable as not regulated and uses private information from the DVLC,  unreasonable behaviour if someone makes a mistake)

TV Ads

Co-op Funeral Plans YES 

(distressing and mentally pressurising)

 

Quick Quid Payday loans NO 

(useful for some,  needs regulating, interest charges far too high)

 

Equity Release (money out of a persons home) with Carol Vorderman  YES 

(persuasive and uses family situations to embarrass older persons to consider taking out loans on their homes with the added celebrity of  C.Vorderman who knows nothing about it)

 

Bingo on line sites YES 

(better to enjoy a night out at the Bingo hall or pub bingo)

 

TV Progs.

Britian G.T. voting with heart YES  (not fair)

Promo for forthcoming Progs.  YES  (too much too long)

Sky One repeats (I don't have Sky one but hate so many repeats on every channel) YES

 

Films

Frozen (not seen)

The Dark side of the Sun (not seen)

 

Songs

Let it go (from Frozen) not heard to my knowledge

That means a lot by PJ Proby (not heard)

 

Events

Xmas cards with selfie photo YES

Crufts dog show YES  

(perpetuates the harmful, hurtful style of the breed)

Badger Cull  YES (unacceptable)

 

Politics

System allows unelected Peers in the House of Lords to vote on and pass laws YES (not democratic)

Universal Credit (replacing benefit) YES   (not properly thought out and not carefully rolled out)

 

Sport

Grand National (cruel and unacceptable)   YES                                             

Grouse Shooting (cruel and unacceptable)  YES

Greyhound Racing (cruel and unacceptable as these animals are mostly

kept only for racing in difficult and unpleasant circumstances for them)YES

Pheasant Shooting (cruel and unacceptable)YES

Golf Open Tournament NO (can't see why not ~ not hurting anyone?)

Fox Hunting (goes beyond cruel ripping a creature apart with trained hounds)YES

Bullfighting (cruel unacceptable watching one of our proud creatures die in the most

undignified and disturbing way)YES

Trophy Hunting (cruel unacceptable armed hunters shameful)YES

@Cleoriff 

a little confused as to your post ^^^ as your previous votes were included in the totals; and snoring and golf Open tournament were voted not to go in.
