    Yesterday i went to east London on a pleasure jaunt, but i digress. I saw an old boy wearing a blazer complete with RBL badge on breast pocket as it should be , but then he had 8 badges ( pins for foreigners reading) , and 8 on the right lapel. he looked like an over age over weight train spotter . OH AND HE HAD THE rbl CRESTED TIE over his blue shirt as well .
    So how many badges should one be allowed to wear on a lapel before becoming a git ? I suggest two .. providing one is a poppy or course .
  2. Does it really matter? As long as he was happy, leave the old fucker alone

  3. Does it really matter you small minded cunt.

    Let the old boy wear as many badges as he wants. He's probably earned it more than you.

  4. May I be the first to suggest that we hound him to death, preferably screaming 'die walt, die'? or something similar?

    Alternatively, and here is a crazy idea, leave him alone as he's in civilian clothing, in a civi environment. He's doing no harm. If you are that offended then please remove your eyeballs so you don't have to see such things ever again.

  9. If you were waiting for a train, might I suggest you throw yourself under the next one?
  10. I think the first sentence sets the scene perfectly (my bold). If that's what you do for pleasure, surely your life is pretty irredeemable. Although compared to Southend, at least East London contains some humans.

    The chances are he fought for the right to wear whatever he fucking well wants. What have you done that makes you think you can tell him what badges he's allowed to wear?

    well i was expecting a far better quality of banter from the troops , well of course he can wear as many badges as he likes when i say old he was younger than me . as for what have I done with my life ? well I lived to be older than Elvis so that makes me happy . I shall now consider myself chastised and let the matter drop for-with, And I shall send my two VC's back after the weekend .

    Brick lane music hall on a serious note , a great night out and well recommended if you are in the Woolworth area I recommend this venue to you .
  13. Well, Bern, you certainly seem to have stirred up a hornets nest there me ole mate.
