Watched the Frankie Boyle thing last night, don't watch the telly me, couldn't get intoit. As for 8 year old Southern, Tory, Liverpool/ Barcelona fans, well i'm sure they'll be registered on here!

Newport Leo? Best trip I've done, went all over Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Providence, Boston and New York, was absolutely brilliant, couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Going to Aus in the summer for the pre-season so looking forward to that Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Kuala Lumpur, reckon it should be good! Got your message will give you a shout later in the week when I can egt down the shop, see what's going on.

Nice one John Boy. Thanks for that. You're such a bastard, though, you've probably minced them kids in a few after match threads.  Take no notice of him, it's good.

Ricky lived in Wrexham for a while,played the banjo at my brother in laws stag do, mind it was before he was famous ;)

I knew Ricky very well, when he was Hobo Rick, he had three brothers, the eldest I can't remember, the other two Albert and Ronny. Albert had a fine singing voice and Ronny was quite a good footballer, when he was in nick he wrote to us quite regularly, the letters were so funny, after he came out he had an agency for actors and actresses, his office was above the bank on the corner opposite The Adelphi Hotel  and Dick Louis on the other side. I was working in insurance at the time and he asked me if I could help him out he had a problem which I solved for him, I didn't like the insurance business and left, I was looking for work and Ricky asked me if I would like an Equity card, I turned it down. Last time I saw him was in Alicante Airport. He told me he had a Caravan on a site just near The Benidorm Palace, My memories of him before he hit the big time are the best, there is one stand out memory which was so funny, I don't think he would be chuffed if I told it.

I remember him as Hobo Rick. He used to play the little social club by me Ma's. Good lad. As for stories, Vic, he tells one in his own book, having to do one off our estate, sharpish, when Hubby come home and near collared him and the Missus. Our estate was like a maze. Early hours of the morning, shitting himself, lost, walking round in circles, couldn't get a taxi or bus. It's funny in the book, but serves him right.

He still does shows with the aul banjo, and he's got a little club in town. I can't remember the street off the top of me head, but he's got a website. Just put Ricky Tomo's club in your search bar. Or John will know where it is. Me sister says it's a great Sunday afternoon, like the aul time Variety days, few turns and a sing-song.

Just seen one of my neighbours there. Poor lad, walking up and down lost. I mentioned them, little gang of plonkies, no harm to anyone. He's had his sick money sanctioned, hasn't had a penny in 2 weeks, him and his Missus. Done what I can, but it wasn't much. Fucking Ian Duncan Smith, the kunt, sat in he's rent free Tudor Mansion now, on Father In Laws estate, eating fucking Quails Eggs and Pheasant off the Peasants backs. But then, that's the fault of these daft bastards down here. I told him that. He said... Don't blame me, I didn't vote.

I despair of us sometimes. No wonder IDS laughs his bollocks off at us.

The Green Room on Duke street, never had a bad night in there.
Was talking to him about him taking cans of mild to the showbiz dinners and he said it was true. I asked him "could I do the same next time  I come here?"  You can guess his reply.

Ha! Nice one. He is a case. I had a pint with him once, in The Phil. We had a few words at the bar. He was getting the ale in. He was sat with a few mates. He invited me over. I said, no, you're with company. He said, Fuck them, come over. I spent about an hour with them. Normal proper lads, had a good laugh with them. I've heard him slagged off, "Professional Scouser," and all that caper. But he seems like an alright fella to me.

I remember the auld club he had, bottom of Mount Pleasant, with Olly Reid's empty barrel behind the bar, they used to hold the equity meetings there, when he was representing loads of the Liverpool actors. He certainly got loads of lads in bands jobs as actors back then.

What people probably aren't aware of, is how much of a role he played in the early days of the HJC when the campaign had nothing, from a fundraising perspective to even covering the rent on the original shop for a while.

We have the Spanish election coming up, no worry for me, Foreigners are not allowed to vote in National elections but I can vote in local elections and European. I agree with the "Only Spanish can vote bit". I stood in the elections in 1,999 but I was told that lots of socialists vote and lots of Conservatives too,
I was really worried for my business there was about 50% socialist and 50% right wing. When my Spanish friends asked me to stand with them I said ok but as I asked more questions I told them that I wouldn't stand for the council but I would help with translating. I was genuinely worried for my business but it all turned out ok my mate who has a car cleaning and tyre fitting business did the same as me and we didn't get any animosity from our customers.

I had to deliver a note to his house one day. I forget the name of the road, just up from The Black Horse pub and cemetry. I was knocking and some aul fella walked past on the other side...
"Lookin for Ricky, Lad?"
"Yeah."
"He fucked off out this mornin, all tarted up, big car came for him. He must be off to that London."

It was funny. I gave the aul fella the note to give him.

I don't know the lad. But them few times I've had contact with him, he's seemed a proper decent fella.

Anyway, off to Lidl, going to get me neighbour a few bits. If I gave him money, it would go on Frosty Jack. The prosperous South, eh.

On me way out, I just remembered a cracker... Ricky was on one them tea-time quiz things that are all over the telly now, Pointless Celebrities or some such shite. 4 of them answering questions. They all introduced themselves, bigging themselves up the way they do, I'm this, I'm that, I'm great me.

Came to Ricky... "I'm Ricky Tomo, a Plasterer from Liverpool."

Brilliant.

He is a great lad John and I have loads of stories to prove it, he lived in Elmore Street  and all the lads used to go round to the "Primrose" which was just around the corner, we had some truly great nights, a lot of the Everton FC lads used to come round too, we used to go to a pub just off Scotty can't remember the name but he would go in first playing the banjo and Albert his brother would go second he would start singing "Mardi Gras" then we would all join in and before you know it the whole bloody pub is up singing , he and his brothers always came to my house on New Years Eve along with David Johnson, Mick Lions, Steve Sargent the lad who played right back and Ronnie Goodlass they are just a few I can remember. It seemed that wherever Ricky went there was a party.

No surprise really.

Leo can you get this fact on Facebook mate with references etc? It will show that the poor bleeders on benefits (who can't afford to go on Facebook to find out dirty bollux like this) that at least WE know who the REAL fucken' robbers are!!
I want to know who are the party of the habitual offenders. If it turns out to be Labour then I'm done with politics and suggest we shoot the fucken' lot of 'em and make a fresh start.

Sorry to hear that 92 mate. But sadly, I'm hearing more and more of it every day. I met a fella over a year ago now, having a pint, went out back for a ciggie.. He was having a quick pint, before going to his ATOS assessment. I told him he'd best not drink. He said fuck'em. They'd already stopped his money. He was going on appeal. He had one leg. Lost the other one in The Falklands and his 19 year old son in Iraq.

I've never been on the dole in me life. I gave up a live in Santa Barbara to look after me Ma. I'd be back there now, if I hadn't got ill. I get 72 nicker a week on the sick. 2 days after they cut the lymphoma out me neck, I got a letter saying my money had been stopped. I got it back because I'm now waiting on this liver malarkey. I'd go to work, if I wasn't so knackered all the time. But I went down there on the bounce. I seen a woman in a wheelchair, with no legs, crying, just been declared fit for work. Fuck knows what she's supposed to do, maybe a doormat for IDS. The baldy kunt.

He lives in a Tudor Mansion, on his Father In Law's country estate. It's a listed building. He recently claimed 2 million from the public purse to get it done up. He's related to the Queen. He's been caught lying fuck only knows how many times. His nasty little Universal Credit scheme has cost billions. Raping/murdering kids, lying, robbing, thieving bastards, they're worse than Maggie fuckin Thatcher.


Don't let them rob your Mam in Law, mate, cause murder. You'll win. They do it knowing most people will just give in. Bastards. And I'll try and find that information out for you, Johno. But you know what, mate.... it'll be a needle in a haystack job, because there's tons of stuff like that all over the net. And sadly, more and more of that is coming out by the minute an all.

Sorry to have started the day off on that note, but there's not that much else to talk about at the mo.

Jesus mate, I don't know what to say. Try to get the anger out of your system before you deal with them. Get boned up on all the info you need and try to be cool, deliberate, and articulate - none of this is easy under such duress, but if they think they're up against someone who is 'on the ball' and relentless, rather than some ranting maniac that they can get the police to deal with, it might just be them that loses heart and gives up. Sorry if this is teaching you to suck eggs, like. Best of luck mate.

That's exactly how to deal with them, Doc. Thankfully, I've never had to deal with them, really. But over the years with me Ma and a few other things, well, here you go... I'm staying in me Mates. The Balifs knocked a few times. When I open the door, I put the Scouse on with a trowel, wait a minute and then say... "You're assumed right of access, is denied."
It's hilarious. I do it with all officialdom... speak, watch their faces light up when they think Thick Scouser, got him, play up to it and then twat them with a bit of their own official jargon. Watching their faces crumple is near worth going through this shite. Well, it's not but it's one life's little compensations.


I know Alby will have none of it. But that's defo the way to go, read what they've said, search out the info on the computer, get a bit of advice if needed, go down and wallop them with their own rules and goobledeegook. The poor bastards being forced to front all this, don't want to know. They're just terrified of ending up sat on the other side of their desks, but even they took industrial action last year.

A mate of mine's mustard at all this. Worked all his life, heavy goods driver, proper good lad and dad, came from proper nothing, but raised he's kids right, University all that. Just a working lad, match goer, no interest in politics. Then he had a heart attack. He was knackered, and still a bit sick. A few weeks after having stints put in, they stopped his sick money. Worse thing they ever done, unleashed a monster. He's on a mad mission now, looking after every dolite in Bootle and beyond. I got onto him when they started on me, got loads of info. But when I went down there, I got a Glaswegian girl. She started off all snotty. I just looked at her and pulled a bit of a kipper. She got me drift. And soon as she lowered her DWP sheild, she became a proper person again, told me what kunts they are and got me money reinstated.

Just smile and act daft, Alby, then wallop them. They'll soon change their tune.

Remember years ago, you couldn't walk down the road without tripping over a Citizens Advice Bureau. Mind you, I don't know what their online service is like.

Takes months to get an appointment now, Doc. The sanctioned lad next door phoned them yesterday.... got an appointment for late June. What he's supposed to do till then...


Mind you, I got him his bottle of cider, Lidl's 2 nicker for a fire extinguisher full. So, he was happy for an hour or so. But in all seriousness, think about who benefits from the benefit system... That little gang by me, couldn't work in a convulsion. They're proper shot. The Tories have turned dog on dog with their lies. They have made working people believe them lads are the problem and that's why the countries bust.

3% of the welfare budget goes on the chronically unemployed. Between 3/7% of that is falsely claimed. It's a spit in the bucket compared to tax fiddling and banker swindling. Barclays fined 1.5 billion. Shares in Barclays went up at the same time, leaving them 1.5 billion better off after the fine, and that doesn't include what they made by fixing the markets.

Like most working people, I've no time for bone idle scroungers milking the system. They should be sanctioned. But let's start at the top and work our way down.

Me niece walked in, I lost me drift. I was going to say... Benefitting from benefits, there's a slum lord here in B//Mouth, Dave Wells. I remember him from the 70's, nutter, marched into a nightclub one night with a shotgun, ranting and raving, while we all ducked under tables and that. He's a peer of the community now, local Tory dignatory, owns millions of flats, shitholes, rams them full of doleites, charges at least 600 a month for a bedsit. I've seen estimates of what he takes out of benefits ranging from 6 to 12 million nicker a year.

Billions go unclaimed. Benefits are taxed income. The only poor bastards not benefitting from benefits are them stuck on them. but how that gang next door to me are supposed to get a job that will pay their rent, let alone let them keep warm and eat, is beyond me. The only jobs here are shite zero hour contract things with minimum wage. Yet I constantly see and hear ordinary working class people ranting about the scroungers wrecking the country and they don't mean IDS and his mob.
