Ranty Fridays

RIP Ranty Friday

RIP Ranty Friday

I started Ranty Friday because I wanted to host a weekly linky and be part of the community that is blogging.  I also wanted to limit my ranting to one day a week.  Increasingly, and generally as a direct result of time spent reading the Daily Mail, I was finding…
Ranty Friday — Approaches

Ranty Friday — Approaches

I am going to try and keep Ranty Friday quite "measured" this week.     I don't want it to come across as a full blown rant but it is something I feel I need to talk about this week as it has really made me quite, well sad and grumpy in…
Ranty Friday — Maria Miller

Ranty Friday — Maria Miller

Well you didn't think a Ranty Friday would go past without me mentioning Maria Miller did you?    I have to say I have been appalled by the way she has behaved recently.   I haven't followed the entire saga and know all the ins and outs but what I do know…
Ranty Friday — Table Manners

Ranty Friday — Table Manners

This has been getting on my wick for months. And this week it made me actually rage out loud.  Pause the TV and take a photograph. Two photos in fact. What in particular with regards to table manners am I talking about on Ranty Friday this week?   Well that picture…

Ranty Friday — Birth

Ranty Friday — Birth

Well clearly not birth itself.  Obviously.   But this week on Ranty Friday something has got right on my wick.    We heard that Nick Knowles and his lovely wife were expecting their first child together in August.   Excellent news you might think.   But not if you have read about in the…
Ranty Friday — Boasts

Ranty Friday — Boasts

Not people boasting about stuff, that one-up-manship that men do in the pub but on Ranty Friday this week I am talking about something I read a lot:  Estate Agents' details.   You know the ones I am talking about, don't you?   You don't?   Let me give you some examples: "This…
Ranty Friday — Lord Rennard

Ranty Friday — Lord Rennard

Right before we go any further this rant is not about him, nor am I making any comment about him.  So if you are thinking of suing me for libel you can forget it. What am I talking about is my understanding of events this week.   A case of sexual…
