Erm, black artists like Shirley Ellis (she of the fantabulosa Clapping Song) didn't exactly have a lot of say over what they recorded in the 60s ...

But none of this is anything to do with whether a phrase has dodgy origins or not - it's simply to do with who uses the phrase and/or whether it's part of what's perceived as an attack on Brent or the club or pasoti or Newell or Webb or who- or whatever else is currently flavour of the month in those parts. Remember when several of us made disparaging comments about Newell's mate when he was on fifteen to one? Remember how many of us were attacked on twitter for them?

Total wankers.

if pedlar is so offended by the phrase nitty gritty because it origins towards the slave trade  i wonder how he feels then about Plymouths praise of Drake and Hawkins?

Lets have a look at the etymology of this phrase.......

Most sources state the first usage in the 1950's or 60s (though one person claims a written reference in 1812).

The first slaves arrived in Virginia in 1619.

So, assuming the first written reference was in 1812, I find the slave connection very unlikely.

Why was it not mentioned for the first time until 200 years after the start of the slave trade?

To be honest, after Pedlars Brief Synopsis dalliance with ATD back along when he fell foul of the Farm hierarchy, I reckon Newell will quietly find this one rather funny.

Is pedlars account still active ?

Yes it is Punchy.

There's so many filtered words/expressions on that site, so many affected posts which no longer make sense, it's actually comical proper laugh out loud reading.  Getting to the 'nub', I'm off to dance to some hokey-cokey, apologies to the Catholics, well done to pisspott for the inconsistency, thank you. http://www.pasoti.co.uk/talk/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=77097&hilit=Hokey+Cokey  This thread needs a complaint, along with many others.

I just re-read the Smalley thread which was the catalyst for my leaving and it really is a shambles. Asked to step forward and apologise to the club for saying whilst I didn't wish an injury like that on anyone, in pure footballing terms this didn't really hurt us. It physically pains me reading it.. Who actually has the mind to try and pass that off as some form of major abusive. Sad, so sad ffs.

Comedy gold........................Napoleon acting as janitor, holding up the corner of the modroom carpet for SimpleOllie to attempt to sweep away the evidence of total shame.

RIP Pasoti.

Point of order Mr Legend. A single Mod took the decision to act as he did. That's usually the way it works on this site.

The reluctant one and the Iddlesleigh slug love pasoti the way it is.

I see Ollies "Who actually cares?" post is no longer there now. Laughing

I wonder if the twat has realised what a hypocritical little cnut he is. Someone like Womble criticises Pasoti and he's facing all sorts of accusations and warnings. Then Pedliar gets caught red-handed acting like a complete and utter cnut, and it's "who actually cares?"

Fckin throbbers.
