About this deal

And, if nothing else, I now know from personal experience that cancel culture is not some right-wing fantasy; it’s for real, alright. The action never moves on from this period, and therefore the hairstyles and fashions worn by the characters remain unchanged however far the series progresses. Ken is showing-off as an amateur chef, but his plans to make a meal for Len and Ray are sabotaged by his snooty attitude and incompetence, despite Minnie Caldwell’s assistance.

Alf’s latest brainwave to woo Maggie round to his way of thinking is met with hostility, though Maggie tells Elsie she hasn’t rejected Alf outright, merely his intended employment of chutney or chili sauce. He went on to underline the ludicrousness of this farcical copyright circus by playing a few bars of the piano intro to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in the wrong key ala Les Dawson simply because he couldn’t even play the proper bloody melody himself without being slapped by a strike, let alone using the actual Queen recording on the video. Stan refuses to budge despite Hilda’s entreaties that a fresh lick of paint will persuade their daughter to stick around, and Len pays a visit to the sleazy venue Rita is a ‘Jill of all trades’ at; even he is disgusted by what he finds. Although the series quickly developed a cult following with its unprecedented swearing and hip cultural references (Steve Hillage of Gong was said to be a fan), those whose listening habits wore slippers were largely as appalled as renowned moral crusaders like Lord Longford and Mary Whitehouse. Hilda receives three guests for her cocktail night and proceeds to empty the house of booze, despite Stan claiming her concoctions taste like Lucozade mixed with Domestos; Irma, on the other hand, begins to pay off her debt to Ray, and Rita looks forward to Christmas Day in the company of Mavis whilst wearing a bit of tat Len bought her, apparently from Woolies.Also, Lucille is tracked down to a grotty bedsit and Elsie pressurises Alan into bringing her back home; he does so and appears to have ironed out his problems with the threesome in the process. But shazza is nevertheless a notable figure to me, for his/her comment was the last to ever grace a video on my YouTube channel, the final person provoked into saying something after enjoying one of my offerings on a platform that had twelve long years of providing satirical and/or bawdy entertainment for the masses who were incapable of raising even a moderate titter at the woeful excuse for comedy that television serves-up these days.

After being persuaded by Alan that another threesome with Elsie will result in a harmonious household, Lucille agrees. Elsewhere, Maggie is prepared to give Alf the benefit of the doubt when it comes to his suggestions for their spanking sessions, and Emily’s attempts to raise funds for charity sees Albert Tatlock challenge anyone to accompany him on a walk across Weatherfield Moor. This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy on nudity or sexual content. I could understand it if they blocked a video and explained why but to terminate an account without warning nor explanation? The residents of the street mark Bank Holiday in their own distinctive ways: Len takes Rita to Old Trafford for the Ashes test match, Hilda watches the test card, Minnie pretends her backyard is the seaside, and Ena organises an event at the community centre, booking a ‘turn’ whose identity she won’t reveal - much to the annoyance of Albert Tatlock.Hilda discovers Annie Walker is planning a Rovers day-out at Buggerton Hall; rightly convinced Annie didn’t want her and Stan there, Hilda books herself on the trip, despite Stan’s assertion that stately homes are for working-class masochists.

Teenager Lucille Hewitt lodges with Elsie, but only makes occasional appearances, presumably spending most of her time in her bedroom frigging herself off to pictures of David Cassidy. I've only watched three episodes (so far) the two pilots and the Christmas episode, but what I like best is as has been noted, the realistic language. When YT took it upon itself to remove my entire channel without warning – rather than ban a handful of videos I could have easily uploaded to another outlet like Vimeo – their reasons for doing so suggested the images placed in their heads by ‘Buggernation Street’ were too much for their fragile sensibilities; they then, like some satanic abuse fantasist, appeared to believe they had actually seen these images in my videos.The glaring difference between YT and other video platforms was never better highlighted by the viral success of this particular video. With Albert and Stan hiding down in the Rovers’ cellar, hoping to spend the night drinking Annie’s barrels dry, Hilda assumes her husband’s failure to come home implies he’s with his fancy piece on Inkerman Street; Hilda makes a fool of herself as she storms off to the address.
