Public Opinion Flip-Flops

In genuinely thought this was gonna be a thread about dhobi bats.

I hate flip flops personally. I find the bit that goes between your toes really uncomfortable.
That's because the bit usually goes in the horse's mouth - but then again I suppose you expected that sort of rubbish.

Cyalumes are for pussies. Wasn't me but I'm not sure what he wanted the candle for. If it was to see his alti that would mean he was wearing one in the first place. Not something I bothered with much. I'd mainly eyeball it and watch the guys around me. Doing CRW it was kind of superfluous and just something else to snag a rigging line.

If the twinkletoes in question was called Peter, I know who you're talking about. Did loads of hops with him and almost killed each other doing stupid shit a time or two.
... he may have been! it was a long time ago...

The reason for the candle was Hooper insisting that jumpers wore headgear and had illumination....

His version of "Headgear" was a polystyrene roof tile stolen from the packing shed ceiling held on with break cord, and the candle in the jammie.. which to everone's amazement stayed alight all the way to the ground...!

Frankly it was his habit of repacking his rig on the floor of 40T on the way up caused me the most angst...!

public opinion hasn't changed they just keep it to them selves due to the gobby minority, virtue signalling and hostile press..

Brexit proved that more than anything. the public has always been pro europe but anti EEC/EU but the govts had never given them a chance to say no.

most are against gay marriage out of principle nothing to do with homophobia, most are anti immigration but are not racist, most do not believe in global warming but do think we are shitting the place up too much and so on.

we often get things forced upon us by politicians trying for their mandela moment or because it is in their 'interests'
The great thing about gay marriage is that it spreads the misery around
 
What! FFS - Birkenstock, like Dubarry boots, are not unisex, no matter what the adverts say. Every bloke I’ve ever seen in either item of footwear has been a cnut. A very specific kind of cnut for Birkenstock and a different, but very specific type of cnut for Dubarry boots.
Nothing says lesbian for a woman more than sensible shoes, especially birkenstocks

There are those who say it's a short length of pipe. Pipe and tube being synonymous in accordance with BS1387 et al...

Personally, I think that sooner or later the woke will start to argue amongst themselves.
They are already - feminism and the LGBTQWERTY lot are all ready having fisticuffs - with the Police legitimately flummoxed when trying to basically stop a bloke smacking a woman in the chops but not being able to in those terms.

This is the badge for the Woke lot - it's envitable.

I'm waiting for the feminists to fall out with the Muslims, it's really going to go off with a bang

Perhaps post Cummings, and to the dismay of Harriet Harperson, maybe the public will start to ignore the court of public opinion

Surely that would mean them ignoring themselves? ;-)

NO NO NO NO NO, Sandals, Jesus Creepers and Crocs all wearers of these abhorrent pieces of footwear should be flogged with stinging nettles and the bottoms of their feet beaten with rose thorns then dipped in vinegar.
Crocs, the best practical deck shoes for sailing - no, seriously, but the incentive sounds quite persuasive, do you charge?

Anyone wearing Dubarrys ashore is a cnut.

but now they are having kids.

the best thing about botterism is that is supposed to kill itself off, instead its become a legal requirement for at least one child per family to be a sexual minority.
