Ever wonder what happened to Auld Ted,he retired about 10 years ago…..he was only on Britain’s got talent,nice to know he’s thinking about a new career at the age of 82 (p.s.i’ve got the video in avi format of the show but dont know how to rip the small clip out……any helpers please).

Update,i’ve since found the vid on youtube,hope you’s enjoy,we had a good laugh about it lol.

Update2: Iwas coming back from town along the dock roadsaw signs saying road closed by the iron bridge so i was slowing down to turn right when i saw old Ted outside a pub with about 5 other people so my window was already down so i shouted “TED” and they all stoped and looked at me so i shouted “SUPERSTAR” and i could see them all laughing as i drove away lol.

Is This True?

I’ve heard that Southport have put in for option 3: 20p on the clock and 20p a mile if this is true then that’s my job finished,we cant compete with delta’s stupid low rates,i was hoping that we could hold out this year maybe next year as well and force them to have a rise first.Drivers are telling me now that this is a long collar job,i don’t want to work more hours for the same money,why should i? I do enough hours as it is never mind more,i don’t want to earn mega bucks (would be good though) i just want to earn a living without doing stupid hours.

P.S. This has pissed me off big time,we used to have a laugh on this bog and at work the comedy factor is well gone now our livelihood’s at stake?

Option 1: 20 pence on clock ………………..wow fucking wee………………….so now the public know we start off at 1.80……………….doesn’t matter that’s all it is…………they still think were too deer………………if we lose 1 passenger a night that’s the stupid 20p rise gone….unfucking believable……….a stupid 20p rise…is going to lose us work…………i was hoping on no rise………..i know fuel price’s have shot up but should that be passed on to the punter?………..why should we put in for a rise then wait for the private hire to follow…..why cant we hold out and let them put in for a rise first?…………why when we want a rise cant we call a meeting like we have done for the last 15 years…..it seams like we have no say in the matter anymore…….its above us…….lets all start our associations…… e.g.sefton non radio association….get my drift?



The Rise (again)

This went ahead behind the night men’s knowledge,Mike Melling took it upon himself that HE and probably DAYMEN wanted a rise,not giving a shit about nightmen,he gave out ballot papers Tuesday and wanted them back by noon Wednesday,in my opinion this was done behind the nightmen’s back,knowing there’d be few out Tuesday,when i asked why i wasn’t asked my point of view i was told everyone knew about it and their was ballot papers in the office for anyone who wanted to vote,but Phil (metros finest) knew nothing about it?and……..also…………………HE(Mike Melling)………………..ran out of ballot papers……………..WHAT THE  FUCK ?So he issued another 50(if that)…….So were still waiting for an outcome……….

I’d just like to ask,Who asked Mike Melling to represent us? i surely didn’t,did he take this upon himself and say i’m your new representative?…….if so cant we all apply for changes in our rates?and while i’m on the subject,if the rise goes through that these daymen wanted….will they all go home at 6pm and not take  any of our work….that’s in short supply  and can only get worse with a rise……………..

This job is on its arse,we are constantly losing work to the private hire who are a lot cheaper than us,they’ll be laughing their socks off when they hear were after a rise………………….
