UK Unites Over Politics Just Once, Political Broadcasts Most Boring

Party Political Broadcasts, Fifty Shades of Grey and shopping channels have been hailed as life’s biggest bores according to a new survey.

The study which asked 2,000 adults about what causes them to switch off revealed a list of the 50 most mind-numbingly boring people, places and things Brits come across in everyday life.

The topical winner was Party Political Broadcasts, rated as excessively boring by over half of the adults polled.

Ad breaks, queueing in the Post Office, and a painfully slow wi-fi connection were also placed highly in the list of biggest yawns

Mark Walters, Managing Director of Interparcel, which commissioned the study said: ‘’It seems we Brits get bored very easily.

‘’And we all have different boredom triggers – many often find themselves restless and looking for things to do, while others relish their free time.

‘’It seems our general impatience is a common cause for boredom nationwide and that suggests our free time is very precious.

‘’It’s no surprise that most of the top ten were made up of situations where we have to wait around so any areas of life where we can avoid this are embraced.’’

The research showed many of the most hyped elements of British life prove to be a source of boredom for many.

Sport bore a brunt of the blame, with extended football analysis, Formula 1 races and horse racing on TV all making an appearance.

And the gentlemanly sports of snooker, cricket and bowls were added to the many sporting mentions that sent those in the poll snoring.

Ed Miliband, David Cameron and Gordon Brown were all deemed completely boring by the poll, as well as the current affairs discussion show, Question Time.

Other TV entries included the daytime classics Bargain Hunt and Loose Women, while Scrapheap Challenge and Gardener’s World were also shown to tip Brits into tedium.

On a similar gardening theme, TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh came in as the 50th entry, accompanied by the famously boring A-listers of Kanye West, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bono.

The world of work was another source of boredom – 14 per cent claimed to work with someone who bores them to death; while company meetings and Powerpoint presentations made the top fifty.

But life outside of work doesn’t provide entertainment it seems, as filling in tax-returns, washing the dishes and mindless small talk were also named.

And doctor waiting rooms, staying in for a delivery and train delays all came within the top ten pinnacles of boredom.

Amazingly, over seven in ten adults confessed they lead boring lifestyles, and almost half considered themselves a boring person.

Though almost a third said they’re tired of their jobs, 58 per cent said they get bored on their days off, at a loss as what to do with themselves.

Mark Walters continues, “As the research clarified, the majority of us find queuing boring. What seemed liked endless queues in the Post Office was a key trigger in the development of the business.

“The emergence of the internet and the rapid development of technology mean you no longer have to queue up to send a parcel.

“You can now easily and cost effectively arrange for a courier to come to your home or place of work to pick up or drop off your parcels and deliveries; you can drop them off or pick them up at a convenient parcel drop off point such as your local shop, garage or even an automated parcel locker at a time that suits you”

“Most importantly it saves time queuing and waiting around, letting you get on with the things that you enjoy doing.”

No To Gay Marriage In Northern Ireland For Fourth Time

The lesbian, gay and bisexual community in Northern Ireland have suffered another blow to their equal rights as the NI Assembly rejects motion for the the fourth time.

(C) TheGayUK

96 MLAs took part in a vote for same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland, 49 of them voted against the Sinn Féin promoted motion, despite a Belfast Telegraph poll in September 2014, showing that a majority of the Northern Ireland population supporting same-sex marriage. 40.1 per cent of those surveyed supported equal marriage, while 39.4% opposed it. 20.5% had no opinion on it either way.

How the NI Assembly Voted On Same-Sex Marriage

With Sinn Féin, SDLP and five alliance MLA's supporting the proposal, the DUP and Unionists road blocked the bill which would see all LGBs given equality in marriage. All DUP members voted against it and of 53 unionists, just four voted in favour.

Marriage is a devolved issue for the United Kingdom. Gay couples in England and Wales were afforded their rights on 13th March 2014 and couples in Scotland on 16th December 2014. Couples in Northern Ireland are at this time only permitted to have civil partnerships.

Tories Have The Most Out Candidates At 2015 Election

LGBTory, the Conservative Party LGBT group, is proud to announce that at next month’s general election the Conservatives will be fielding 37 out candidates in constituencies up and down the country.

This will be the highest number of out candidates selected by any party. Based on figures by Professor Andrew Reynolds of the University of North Carolina, Tories led the way with openly LGBT candidates at 37, against the Lib Dems and Labour's 35 out candidates. Green has 23 and UKIP has 5.

LGBTory Chairman Colm Howard-Lloyd said:

“This impressive number of candidates builds on the Conservative Party’s record of having more out MPs than the other major parties put together.

“We are pleased to have 12 out former MPs re-standing as well as to have selected gay candidates in winnable seats such as Bath, Blackpool South and North East Derbyshire.

“The Conservative-led government’s achievements on LGBT rights have been transformational with same sex couples in England and Wales being able to marry from March last year.

“We have also seen £2 million distributed to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools as well as the law changed to allow gay men to apply for convictions for consensual gay sex to be disregarded. There is a pledge in the Conservative Party’s election manifesto to issue a pardon for historical gay sex convictions if elected in May.”

Out candidates have been selected in every region of Great Britain. LGBTory patron Ruth Davidson MSP is also leading the Conservatives’ campaign in Scotland.

Below is a list of out Conservative candidates along with details of the constituency in which they are standing:

MOVIE REVIEW: From Beginning To End

There is good taste, and then there is incest.

TLA Releasing

It’s surprising that we can sit and watch a lot of suspect and even deviant behaviour amongst (consenting) adults on the silver screen, but this is one topic that we feel is just a tad too icky even for us. Especially when it comes in the form of a melodramatic Brazilian telenova that is short on both substance as well as clothing, and is to all intents and purpose nothing more than a pretty piece of soft porn.

It starts with two young half brothers, one 6-years-old and the other 12, who are a little too close to each other for our comfort zone, and for their mother too who suspects there may be more here than what meets the eye. Flash-forward to the boys as grown men, one of the fathers dies, then the mother passes away too, and the boys seek solace in each other. Well that’s their excuse as they have barely stopped lusting after each other since they were kids.

We are convinced that it’s not just lust, but real love, which is put to the test when the younger brother who is a potential Olympic swimming champion is told by his coach that he must move abroad to train. To Russia no less. Oh come on coach, you mean to tell us there are no decent swimming pools closer to Brazil?

Love conquers all though and even a very pretty girl cannot steal the old brother away from his one true love, and this all plays out to a rather deafening over-laden heavy strings soundtrack. And we guess they will happily ever after? Who knows? More importantly, who cares?

Why see it at all? Well the boys/men are rather stunning beefcakes that even with this limited script prove that they can actually act, and also writhe around naked together looking very sexy but without doing the act (it's soft porn after all). It was a big Box Office Hit in Brazil when it was released in 2009, and it has now surfaced on Amazon where you can waste £4.49 and more importantly 90 minutes of your time.

This Morning Toying With Semen Facial Segment

Yep, this is how Morning Television rolls in the United Kingdom. From Jeremy Kyle to semen facials.

(C) TheGayUK

TV execs have confirmed that they're not oppose to featuring a semen facial on a programme coming soon. ITV's flagship morning programme hasn't shied away from controversial segments, having shown a live testicular cancer screening and a live rectum examination, both served as an important public service message to men and their partners, however This Morning also devoted a morning to bondage for beginners on the pre pre pre watershed show. The bondage programme ended up garnering 120 official complaints.

According to sources, the experimental semen on face test will take place with a woman using a sample from her partner and although no date has been confirmed, it is thought that the programme could air sooner rather than later. They told The Sun:

“The team speak with a huge number of possible contributors each day.”

Some experts claim that a man’s ejaculate contains essential anti-aging properties such as proteins, zinc, magnesium, calcium, potassium and fructose, all that could cause a nourishing effect. It also contains Spermine, which identifies “as a potent antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent” and “an important antioxidant of epidermis (skin).

So is it time to get all bukkake on each other?


Hunks of daytime explored... and they're all on ITV... Does ITV know us too well?
