Where do the poll results quoted on news come from….

My experience being picked to take part in a poll and my opinion on an early election in the U.K.

Sometimes you wonder where the sample came from. Well in one instance I was one of the sample.

I randomly got a text supppsdly from sky news. 

I said b. So they will probably use that as a vote against another election. But actually I do want another election and another referendum on Europe. I believe it is needed because so many people voted leave in protest, wanting change even though they did not want to actually leave. That protest is now acknowledged. Therefore I would like another refendrum where people can. Ore will facts about consequences of voting leave or remain.  Therefore it is not correct to say I did not want an election.

However, I do not want an election as early as June. I think opposition parties need more time to prepare in order to be affective opposition.

This is US random theory from someone mid series

The final This Is US has not yet been shown in the UK so I do not know how it ends, but loving seeing it played out. In the meantime I have tried to second guess and I have come up with a far fetched twist that Jack was actually physically abusive and manipulative  in order to control Rebecca. However, the family have tried to block out how nasty he was as they want to put a positive spin on their childhood / lives. Perhaps he is not physically dead just metaphorically dead to the family.

I’m backing my theory up as follows:

  • Rebecca had to wear a high necked, long sleeve wedding dress to hide bruises from Jack beating her up.
  • Rebecca was not sure about Motherhood but Jack started slipping her fertility medication to boost egg production, hence how she got pregnant with triplets.
  • How did they get to adopt Randal just like that? Usually there would be months of paper work and approval of home setting and who would approve someone adopting a baby when already had two of the same age …unless they were bulled into it.
  • Jack separated Rebecca from her family in order to control her. That breakdown at thanksgiving was staged to prevent her seeing her family! He also poisoned her against her family meaning she had no one to tell about the abuse.
  • Kate’s weight is due to his abuse of her.
  • Jack forced Rebecca not to perform for years. Preventing her earning again having finical independence.
  • Jack’s best friend supported Rebecca emotionally when the truth came out and that of course led to their marriage.
  • Rebecca actually preferred to be called Becky but he always called her Rebecca like her parents had and that made her feel like a child and hence she was for a very long time accepting of his control.

Red Noses


I have all the 2017 red Noses. I just do not have the silver one which is so rare that it is retailing at £40 -£50 on eBay. I also have Noses from previous years.




This year, there was 3 dinasours themed noses.


There was three nose designs this year.




This was had red sticky up hair.


This one stuck, it’s nose out when squeezed.


This one squeaked when squeezed.


This one was red untill heated it in hands or putting it in hot water. It then tuned yellow.



This one was called The Stonker.



I think I did have the original, which was plain red. I think my Mum put holes in it and elastic through, to keep it on my nose. But I do not know what happened to it.
