    Brits really are miserable fuckers

    So John Lewis do their usually overly expensive, schmaltzy Christmas advert, watch here:



    Now admittedly I find it cynical and exploitative. You can pay to download the music on Itunes, I think there is a game tie-in, and I think the money would be better spent feeding and housing the homeless. But I'm just an amateur British whinger. Maybe it's Leonard Cohen....

    Using a black family was just so nauseatingly contrived and crass I just couldn't feel anything but bile rising.

    The world truly is a pile of shit.

    82% of Britain is classed as White British but if one factors in the Irish/British and the white non- British immigrants the percentage of blacks in the UK is down to scarcely 10%.

    I'm surprised they didn't use a fucking black poodle to do the trampolining.

    Like most other John Lewis Christmas adverts this is wonderful ! Only the most brain-dead people, or else those determined to be curmudgeonly at all costs, would fail to sing its praises after appreciating its worth.

    It is bloody marvellous !

    ^ Agree, and I think that's Harry's point regarding who is miserable: the narrow minded detractors....including SA, here.

    "OMG, I once had to pay the window cleaner extra because a fox soiled our glass-roofed kitchen...now I hate foxes, and thus I hate the ad. Oh, I feel quite faint recalling it....best go and open a Bolly".

    We have foxes as regular visitors to our garden. A cousin lives about 300 metres downhill from me and she does not like them as I do because her chickens were taken in May.

    We leave our curtains open at all times and the light from our lounge illuminates a small part of the garden. Our last fox was very dark, her back was black, and it took me a while to realise that the two small green lights were in fact her eyes. They are fearless and I think they are very beautiful.

    I realise that they can cause great damage as I once lived on a farm. The farmer killed them by using snares and this is considered to be cruel. It was, however, necessary to protect very small lambs. I am able to detect foxes by their scent.

    So, lots of things in nature are cruel but that doesn't prevent us from appreciating the beauty of foxes. We put our dogs out before we go to bed. The little dog does not go out unless the big dog goes with him. Little Snowy is not daft

    I'm surprised you don't realise how bitter and fucking stupid you sound.

    It was no fox. Just the ghost of a Welsh collier.

    commercials on uk tv regularly feature minority groups.

    there are commercials for dating sites with lesbian couples ripping each others clothes off, shirtlifter couples regular feature in commercials and lately they have had a female wheelchair bound cerebral palsy sufferer alluding to her shaking hands giving relief to her boyfriend. its a commercial for maltesers.

    It seems to me that this sentence is a giveaway for your current psychological condition.

    In all seriousness, you appear to be suffering from depression of some sort.

    I guess this means a good time to be had by all even if there are no goats?

    P.S. I named my buster Peter. He loves to go where the sun never shines.

    Much as I dislike SA's foul mouthed rants, I think his problem is curable, while yours is not, you pretentious wombat.

    Buttplug, once again I really have no idea what you are babbling on about you incoherent imbecile.

    Of course I'm British. We alone have the artful wit of self-deprecation in our quivers.
