I criticised this thread before you even thought of it.

I am glad I criticised the Brexit referendum before the vote in 2016.

I am unable to edit the poor grammar in this thread title due to an early intervention - sorry.

Your career as a thread starter is so over.

I criticised the appointment of Bernard Hogan-Howe as Met Commissioner. I said he'd be a disaster. He was.

(Although I have to meet him next month in an 'official' capacity - and I have to hold my tongue).

darkhorse - 05 Aug 2018 16:48:32 (#9 of 88)

I slagged Macron as soon as I heard of him.

barkis - 05 Aug 2018 16:56:55 (#10 of 88)

I'm sure I must have critisised T20 cricket as soon as I heard of the idea.

Railway Privatisation, Railtrack and then, some years later, Network Rail.

Flogging off council houses and the utilities. The Iraq war. Brexit. Austerity. PFI.

I wish they'd put me in fucking charge.

Brunothecat - 05 Aug 2018 17:52:25 (#13 of 88)

I'm glad I cheered Harold Macmilaln's Lords speech in which he ripped "thatcherism" to bits as the fucked up bullshit it has proven to be.

fogger - 05 Aug 2018 17:58:53 (#14 of 88)

Barkis: I am glad I've criticised The Hundred two years before it's started.

darkhorse - 05 Aug 2018 18:24:00 (#15 of 88)

I suppose a few here have already been rude about the secret moneybags party.

lusmeri1 - 05 Aug 2018 18:26:43 (#16 of 88)

I've never regretted criticising Tony Blair before he was elected leader of the Labour Party.

Ebadlun - 05 Aug 2018 18:28:03 (#17 of 88)

I thought at the time that eternally escalating house prices might be problematic, on account of it being fucking obvious.

Brunothecat - 05 Aug 2018 18:29:42 (#18 of 88)

I criticised Kinnock as leader for allowing Thatcher to get away with any old bollocks at all in the House, apparently tongue tied when confronted by a female.

I don't regret remaining in the Party and carryin on working for it. But I feel rather sick when either Kinnock appears in the media nowadays. Rather disgusted.

popstar7 - 05 Aug 2018 18:37:52 (#19 of 88)

...and the thread takes a not entirely surprising detour into Great Labour Party Grudges 1945-2018.
