The very mention of "wafer thin ham" always makes me  :laugh:. It reminds me of the episode of the Royle family when Anthony brings his vegetarian girlfriend home. His grandma suggests that she will be okay with some "wafer thin Ham! :laugh:

Hmmm? Steve isn't a member of them so I wonder what his point is?

No doubt there will be a long winded conspiracy involving 'council officers', 'brian cossey', 'uncle tom cobleigh' and various other random people at the root of it all....

Don't forget the Freemasons, RAOB, Rotary, Round Table, Forresters, and any other of the 2000 odd "Friendly" societies!      L0L

My hunger strike went very well today (after my Wetherspoons breakfast)

I even went to the gym tonight too, to accelerate the weight loss process. All designed to put additional pressure on CCBC.
I saw Born to Run there.

However, on the way home I noticed that Fat Cat's were offering a free cocktail with the 2 course meal deal, so of course it would have been rude not to support this worthy local business.   Chicken Caesar salad and a steak can't be THAT much of a problem surely?

All is back on track now, and if I can ignore this giant bag of Maltesers, then once again I shall go to bed hungry.

That Pier will be mine in no time....

Once I've opened a box of Maltesers, I have to finish them - there is no other option.  :laugh:

 Does anyone else think that Steve Hunt's ramblings and accusations are getting out of hand and it's only a matter of time before he does something really stupid. Methinks the police should bring him in for questioning and if necessary complete a psychiatric assessment.  $walesflag$

Indeed !!  The most pointless invention EVER, is that sticky strip with which you are supposed to RE-SEAL a bag of maltesers (or revels, or buttons etc) ...  it can never be used,  once the bag is open, they are gone!

I think he's bordering on a nervous breakdown if I'm honest but then how would you feel if you lost everything including your dream through what you truly believe to be an injustice.  I know how I felt and I have to say it was much the same as him.  :(

You did indeed, old chap,   and it seems that your fears may be well founded.

Am empty stomach can drive people to do desperate things...   Like eating a full bag (a family bag) of Maltesers!
