James Stevens needs to study the its/it’s chart. A lot of RP journos over the years have been poorFebruary 11, 2021 at 21:17 #1522662The Tatling CheekilyParticipant

Nice, I’d opine. A welcome change from bookmakers, booze peddlers, city sharks and unsavoury middle-eastern statesFebruary 11, 2021 at 21:46 #1522668The Tatling CheekilyParticipant

That was about my initial summary, but assumed there was sumat I wasn’t aware of based on the OP.February 12, 2021 at 10:09 #1522697
“A lot of RP journos over the years have been poor.”
And I was one of the worst, Tank, possibly THE worst.
That said, a few of the current crop are giving me competition for the title.February 12, 2021 at 10:27 #1522700betlargeParticipant

Surprised that the LadFred365 When The Fun Stops, Double Your Stake FOBT Gold Cup at Cheltenham isn’t happening.
Still, always next year.

You would not make the its/it’s or your/you’re mistakes though, Ian.
These young cubs should have it drilled into them.
Not that I’ve got a clue how old this chap is, very rarely read the RP these days.February 12, 2021 at 14:25 #1522732
True enough, Tank, and it’s goes well beyond the newspaper media.
When I read social media and see even people of our generation typing: “your” instead of “you’re,” “there” instead of “their,” “are” instead of “our” and “could of” instead of “could have” etc I find myself thinking: “Am I the only f****r who actually went to school?”February 12, 2021 at 14:29 #1522733Nathan HughesParticipant

I could of gone too school
but their was more fun at the cricket
but we always looseMember since March 2008February 12, 2021 at 14:34 #1522735
And “loose” instead of “lose!”
It actually requires more effort – an extra character – to get one of the simplest words in the English language wrong!
Cathartic rant over!

If they can’t find a sponsor for the gold cup or derby what chance of finding the money for the smaller meeting , I read one of the reason,s magniers pulled out was because of so called bad publicity from last year’s meeting going ahead despite covid concerns …. While Cheltenham have handled this well with the decision to go with the local charity where does it leave them after thisFebruary 12, 2021 at 20:40 #1522814droffatsParticipant

If you think it’s bad now wait until the affordability checks come in.
I’ve gambled on horse racing almost half a century but I am afraid once I am asked to show if I can afford it or not and can only lose £100 per week/month that is me done.
I will walk away and I say countless other will follow.
It will be a sad day for racing and may well be the end of racing as we know it.
It will continue but it will be vastly different which will be sad.February 12, 2021 at 23:11 #1522824PurwellParticipant

I agree with you there, no way I would allow any bookie, or anyone else for that matter, access to my finances.
