    What to do about racist abuse

    The responsibility is on each individual to conduct themselves in the correct manner and most people do. Unfortunately the minority who think it is funny to call people names are present in all walks of life. I worked in a factory for 20 years where everyone had there turn at being mocked to some degree...with some names sticking for life. I myself got called the Milkybar Kid on my first day because of the blond hair and glasses and to this day I am still known to my former colleagues as Milky! One lad still gets called Casper because of his pale complexion. It is a part of everyday life and most people just get on with because the more you protest the worse it gets. Racism is vile and should have no place in society just like making fun of people who are thin or overweight. Comments can be damaging to all kinds of people. It is human nature to call names but to be a racist is a choice and that is where the problem is. It won’t be stopped anytime soon I’m afraid.

    What to do about racist abuse

    Racist abuse is present at most football matches in almost every country. Unfortunately it won’t ever stop and there isn’t a huge amount that can be done. What can you do? Playing matches behind closed doors is a short term punishment but you can’t do that for every match. There are far worse things going on to be fair that haven’t been tackled like the amount of stabbings at matches. It is commonplace in Italy yet FIFA or UEFA haven’t done a thing. If this was the case in our country we would be banned from Europe. I do think the racism isssue has been blown out of proportion. It is human nature to pick on certain characteristics and make fun of people. It doesn’t make it right at all but most of it is just name calling and not a vicious, hatred fuelled attack. I have witnessed many crowd chants over the years about various players....most of them white and for the amount these footballers earn for their talents I would think a bit of name calling is a small price to pay. I am not condoning racism whatsoever but I think in the bigger picture there are worse things going on.

    Is anyone else sick of f**king BREXIT!

    Looks like a General Election is looming just to complicate matters even more! What happens if they don't like that result...do we vote again? As for the Queen, maybe she should take a massive cut in her allowance and give something back to the country.

    Surely the Queen should be getting off of her solid gold throne and start sorting this shit train wreck of a Parliament right out! It’s getting worse by the day. Even talking of replacing the Prime Minister now! We voted....there was a result....get it fucking sorted! Won’t be long before the riots start. Glad I don’t live down in London because shit is going to go down bigtime.

    Zeus 2 Full Screen.......Nearly

    I never bet on the horses as a rule. I have had some good wins on the National though as any horse with a good run and a bit of luck can win. I remember my Dad giving me a tip for a reverse forecast the year Earth Summit beat Sunny Bay, i think it was the late 90’s or so. Got about £600 or there abouts....about 3 weeks wages back then! Don’t know enough to be a regular or the budget.

    My Grandad’s family were bookies but he didn’t want to be in the business. He placed his bets very carefully and never went over his budget....something he passed on to my Dad and it filtered down to me. Plus working in a factory with career gamblers who studied the racing post everyday but still worked with me kind of proved that there is only one winner. But as a child the fruit machines with all their flashing lights and sounds were a big draw.

    Never been a one to chase money. If I lost the £20, it was gone and I would walk away. Seen so many mates lose their wages trying to win back their losses. It’s due...definately due! Yeah but is it really.....nooooo.

    I have the odd tenner at 20p stakes for a bit of fun but as you said before David, you need a decent bankroll to start with if you are wanting the big wins. If you are lucky a large win or two can pop in early but most of the time you know it’s going to be game over very soon. Double your money and leave is my method. Same as when I played the FOBT machines years ago....£20 in and a quick double up. Would treat the wife to takeaway with my free money.

    A lot of people think that the slot owes them after putting a ton of money through it, like the fruit machines used to. It’s just like people who say zero section is due in roulette....it’s not.

    Hope you took the money and ran. Should have been more for a screen like that though.
