Quote from: dissolute ocelot on January 13, 2022, 12:22:46 PMToday! I know nothing about local government! Literally just a column about how he doesn't understand local government. He makes no attempt to find out the facts or explain it to the reader. He just writes about his own pathetic ignorance. Utterly worthless.

Quote from: shiftwork2 on January 20, 2022, 04:08:46 PMIncreasingly of the opinion that Chiles writes these on his phone while he's curling out a Wednesday steamer. [...] His third mate once did a dinner party anecdote about a posh girls school and we get that as well.

Quote from: Zetetic on January 20, 2022, 05:01:21 PMAlthough LAs will argue that their hands are tied by listing authorities and national-level governments, of course.
Quote from: Bigfella on January 20, 2022, 04:53:14 PMI can't help liking big Chilesy. He seems like a friendly, bumbling teddy bear with zero ego.
Quote from: Zetetic on January 20, 2022, 08:05:18 PMThat's a fair point, and I wasn't trying to fault you, but it's not just a house building or cash allocation problem.We've had demolitions in Cardiff where the council argued that WG-controlled rules meant that without Cadw-listing they couldn't refuse permission. Whether that's even true or not doesn't really matter - accountability is broken.I can only apologise for making it feel like I was trying to correct you.

Quote from: Menu on January 20, 2022, 11:04:55 PMThat's how I feel. He just seems really affable. Also I do like a relaxed TV presenter. Someone who talks to the camera like he's talking to you at home. A bit like Michael Aspel. You can't see their cogs whirring.Sorry for making you picture Adrian Chiles's cogs.
Quote from: Bigfella on January 21, 2022, 04:36:19 AMMore info, please. Would he just ignore people? Tell them to fuck off?
Quote from: Bigfella on January 21, 2022, 04:36:19 AMMakes you wonder how you would treat the public as a celeb.
Quote from: gilbertharding on January 21, 2022, 08:41:13 AMCelebrities quite often do these documentary films where they explore their personal issues (Freddie Flintoff's bulimia, Stephen Fry's bipolar for instance) to highlight the issue, raise awareness, and show how human they really are. I like the fact that Chiles's one was about his drinking. Not his Drinking Problem. Just his drinking. Because he didn't have a problem. He likes a drink. He should probably drink a bit less. He'll definitely try to drink less. For a while.
