  1. The title is a song by the Dubliners it talks about the back breaking work and the hard drinking of Irishmen working in the UK. I was part of that world for nearly 3 years in the sixties I was employed as a general groundworks labrador building the M62. My ganger was a really hard man. He took one look at me when I arrived and said "Jesus who"s this f****n cowboy they've sent me? I think he was referring to my long hair and chip- on- the -shoulder manner. As the weeks and months went by I began to really admire him, Meahall (spelling ) was his name. He was genuine leader of me

  14. I’m genuinely surprised it’s not more ! As a small business and just as an ordinary bloke who wanted to go about his life and be left alone I felt like a hunted animal before I left….and that was 8 years ago and I think things are worse now. Always some f***ing pointy nosed official with their hand in your pocket, always some rule or regulation, a new law here, a new fine there…..just treated like absolute shit in my own land while every odd c**t from the artic to Tim Buk Tu had millions lavished on them. The British Dad and Mum of 4 little British kids was just there to be abus

  28. I would say more people than one in five suffer poor mental health. I think we are all prone to it at some point or other. I don't believe anti depressants are the answer. Life throws lots of things at you which leave you feeling rocky. It's just life. It's not Disney world. Get on with it is my generation's response to it. Counselling,self help books and anti depressants seem to help some people. But not for me.

  32. Society has just changed and not for the better, but I think it's rapidly gone down hill since covid I think. Everything has changed and not for the better. But you just got to plod on and make your best way you can in life and adapt and survive. It's the future generations I feel sorry for and they will have it worst.

  39. I have met lots of immigrants,legal and illegal plus lots of bogus students in UK and other places,the UK needs a total overhaul of the immigration system,a massive shakeup and sacking of innefectual staff,and implementing such policies as no dependants coming to UK with a skilled worker or student visa,they are coming to work or study NOT put down roots and settle.
