Back After The Break But Not For Long

It's been a couple of weeks now since I last posted anything on this blog and in the comments of that post I mentioned "Gotty's keyboard has been hung up. It's tired and all twatted out, just like Gotty ...".

I thought the break would do me good.

Nothing has changed. So it's time to call it a day.


Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read all my blog shite and/or leave comments on all my blog shite and I'm also grateful to those who have recommended all my blog shite to others. A special thanks to others in the blogosphere who have helped me to make this blog the success that it has become. You know who you are.

An extra special 'fuck the fucking fuck off and die' goes to the few that have done all they can to try and fuck this blog in the arse. You know who you are ... and more importantly so do I, you two faced arsewipes.

The Grumpy Old Twat blog may be dead but the blogger behind him certainly isn't so maybe you'll come across him in the blogosphere again one day ... somewhere else ...

If I may be permitted the following observation Gotty...........

BOLLOCKS   BOLLOCKS   BOLLOCKS

Crap Christmas present that. But that's me just being selfish...

All the very best in whatever you do in the future Amigo, you will be VERY sadly missed in the future. Particularly when Cameron/Clegg start to fuck up spectacularly.

GV said...

Gotty, go if you must but know that we'll all miss you.
Q.  How many years can a person repeat the same question?
A.  As long as it takes.

I know you'll be back when it counts.  Werthers and Dolly Mixtures to you xxxx

Good luck with the future... Have a good Christmas!

Ollie Cromwell said...

Farewell Gotty, you were a genuine inspiration. My first ever post was a repost of your CompareTheSmearTwats.com advert. I set up the Red Rag to post it. Keep in touch.

Bill said...

Tatty bye

All Seeing Eye said...

Aargh, the news I was fearing. Good luck Gotty...although somehow I don't think we've seen the last of you. 

You can't keep a good man down.

William Gruff said...

LMFAO!  Another sweary blog tough guy calls it a day.  Captain Ranty 'freeman' told us all he couldn't go on and then decided he couldn't go on without telling us all how difficult it is to go, so came back within 24 hours, and now you've decided you need the drama of a tearful farewell with pleas and backslapping.

If you really meant to go you would not have come back to tell us that you were going.

If you're serious about giving up, shut up and fuck off, and thank you for an amusing blog and the best of luck to you in your future endeavours.

If not, all I can say is stop 'crying' into your handkerchief you wanker.

But...but...but...but, I've only just found you Gotty.  Now what am I going to do?  I can't have my daily rant, what with Obo gone and others and now you.  Sigh.

Oh well, good luck in whatever you decided to do.

You'll be back.

Better fucking had.

Thanks for the larfs.

Have a nice Xmas.

Sorry to hear this.

Good luck and thanks for the entertainment.

Bunni said...

OMG, NOOOOOOOOOOO!  Gotty!  Please don't go away, and don't delete your blog!  We will all miss your wonderful funniness and unique view of the world.  I know how it is to be tired of blogging and stuff, esp. when other things are going on too!

Too bad you have had to contend w/two faced asswipes who are messing around w/ the blog.
They should go Fuck the Fuck off and croak!  Please keep in touch, and have a
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Captain Ranty said...

Cunt.

I distinctly remember telling you to fuck off.

Can't manage a simple instruction, eh?

Cunt.

Captain Ranty said...

I know how you feel mate.

Just do what has to be done.

Get back if you can.

CR.

FH said...

That is bad news.  Just finding the time to read blogs and place a few comments is time consuming enough, let alone trying to keep a full blog going, I think you have done extremely well in blogging to the extent and at the rate that you have, your blog has been an inspiration to many as you can tell from the feedbacks you receive.
So here's wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
Thank you for everything and good luck!

BRICKBAT said...

FUCKSTICKS you cunt that means i´ll have to talk to mrs brick over german shit? =-X

Auch, not good news.  Thank you for all the support and a Merry Christmas and Guid New Year to you and yours.  I'll miss you.

Sorry to see you go old buddy but thanks for inspiring me, and others,to launch my own humble blog. yours was always one of the 'must read' blogs of the day and you will be sorely missed :-D :-P

Bill Tupman said...

Do not give up you ridiculous right-wing old fart! The people who make the negative comments are funded by corporate interests. They are lobbyists. They hate you because you are a libertarian. Youre a bloody right winger. I'm a left wing libertarian. Love the sheer viciousness of your comments and the absence of PC Nil illegitimi carborundum, big guy!

Craig said...

Well thats fucked it then as I always enjoyed your blog.

Have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year and maybe we'll hear from you in 2011.

William Gruff said...

A whining handkerchief sobber writes: 'Cunt'.

I recall a boyhood joke that went: I'd call you a cunt but cunts are useful and you aren't.

Thank you for the compliment Captain Handkerchief.  Now tell us, what the fuck are you good for, except whining about how difficult it is to 'cry' into a handkerchief?

William Gruff said...

Of course he's not serious; he just wants the attention.

Here is a video that will get us in the proper Christmas Spirit with this news:

David C said...

Have the secret service got to you Gotty or what?  The good bloggers are dropping like flies.  Why don't you give Anna Raccoon a buzz - find out how she managed to come back from the dead.
Good luck Gotty, I've enjoyed the ride!

Caratacus said...

Oh Dear - Charlie's here...

William Gruff said...

I've no idea who Charlie is and even less idea who Caratacus is.  Are you an established typo Caratacus, or just the little learning that is generally held to be a bad thing?

David vance said...

Farewell to the blog but I trust the man behind it keeps in touch.

SadButMadLad said...

Oooh goody, more space for use newbie bloggers. ;)

Seriously, relax have a nice holiday and wait for the new government or some right on left hanging hard nut case fluffy wuffy to wind you up.

This Lad is Sad that there is always something in this world that makes him Mad.

@DavidC, Anna had some offers of help from a few fans which she gratefully accepted. Between us we can offload some of the workload. It's hard work feeling that you have to come up with a post every day.

Caratacus said...

Probably both old son. (<span>A little learning is a dangerous thing; </span><span>drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring).</span>

Charlie featured in an episode of the Goons, something to do with secret weapons I believe. Do look it up.

William Gruff said...

LMFAO!  Many thanks.  I always thought you a fellow of little learning, with damp lips and an empty belly.  Your candour is commendable and I commend you for it.  As for the Goons: I won't if you don't mind.  I grew out of the Goons about fifty years ago and have always thought them suitable for the amusement of inbred royalty and those who worship at the alter thereof but not really worthy of serious consideration.

Angry Exile said...

Shite, Gotty. I was hoping not to have to bugger around with the blogroll before New Year, you inconsiderate old sod. Now I don't know if I'll have time to wrap the empty cardboard box I got for Tiny Tim. And who do I replace you with? Left Foot Forward? I don't think so. One less of us, one more of them... no, ta. Sorry to see you go, and not just because so many of the Pshop mash-ups made Oi larf.

Woman on a Raft said...

Solstice on December 21 and I will be in a place with a predicted temperature of minus 18. That is only marginally warmer than my deep freezer.

It  has been a terrible 13 years which has left us with a wrecked economy, a larger number of created idiots than would occur naturally, and a political class which all, except for a minibus load, are a bunch of corrupt boot-lickers who are fixing to sell us in to slavery. The new lot look much the same, only not quite so revolting in visage.

However, I do believe there will be a thaw because I'm picking up whispers, groanings in the ice, that spring will come to Narnia and eventually the witch's grip on power will be broken. When that begins to happen, you will be sorely needed to sing a new song of freedom.  I hope to see you on there,  but if not, then thanks for saying what I could not, and for making oi larf. 

Woman on a Raft said...

This never got the applause it deserved.

Dick Puddlecote said...

you'll come across him in the blogosphere again one day
 
Oh I do hope so. Some of the best mash-ups on the net have originated here, along with breath-taking invective. Crude, rude and bloody hilarious at times. Thanks for all of it. :)

Bugger, buggery bollocks, fucksticks  and fucksocks! :(

What cunts were fucking you about, Gotty, I'll fucking 'ave 'em!!!! >:o  

Seriously, though, mate, stay in touch - yours was one of the very first blogs I read and it's been a must read every day since. You've been an inspiration not only to me but to a hell of a lot of people and you'll be sorely missed. :( :(

In the meantime - have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and the best of luck for the future. :)

I hope to see you back here when some Lefty Coalition cunt(s) piss you off enough to have a bloody good rant! ;)

Well cheerio, you miserable old bastard - I've enjoyed your stuff so thanks for that - take care.

Anonymous said...

Anna was provided with a replacement backbone coutesy of Gotty - his excellent advice, friendship and support proved invaluable in teaching me how to ignore the hormonal teenagers behind their keyboards that were making my life such a misery.
SadButMadLad is correct when he says that it was the offer of help from him and Andrew Withers that made all the difference - it is not just that it is hard work coming up with a new post every day, it is that the backbiting and abuse is diluted three ways when you share the blog with others - there is always someone flipping an e-mail back to you who has seen the foul comment in the moderation file and made some uplifting comment like 'hope his balls drop off'.......
I can't believe how many bloggers have disappeared into the cyber fog in the past few weeks, its depressing, leaving only the multi-headed left wing blogs to rule the air waves. Perhaps that is part of the trouble - the right wing and libertarian blogs were very much run by individuals - not frightened to challenge orthodoxy, whereas the left wing blogs have always been tribal love-ins, supporting each other.
I have been trying to take a leaf out of their book and encourage like minded souls to join us on Anna Raccoon rather than stick it out alone and be picked off one by one with abuse.
That offer is still open to anyone who is of a like mind (and can express themselves within the 'Anna Raccoon' parameters. I was always determined that AR would be 'different' in that it was not going to be a 'sweary' blog, and would be female friendly - no point in alienating half the voting population!!!)
You can't leave me now Gotty! That's like Custer deserting half way through the Battle of Little Big Horn! Get back in the front row Sir!

Sorry - Guest poster above is Anna......forgot to loggin!

Granville said...

Well Gotty not the best Christmas gift I've ever had. On occasions your posts have raised my BP but more often made oi larf, for which I thank you. Hopefully you'll take notice of Anna above and be back in 2011 to chip away at the pedestal, meanwhile take care and have an enjoyable time over the yuletide.

What a shame, Have a Happy Christmas and all the best for the new year to you and yours.
You will be sadly missed.

"An extra special 'fuck the fucking fuck off and die' goes to the few that have done all they can to try and fuck this blog in the arse. You know who you are ... and more importantly so do I, you two faced arsewipes."

This departure - to an extent at least - has the smell of UAF/left authoritarian internet "activists" about it. I'm sure me and Spidey could run a little expose on the freedom-of-speech-fucking arsewipes.

I haven't checked my emails for a few days, but last time I did I had some indecipherable crap in there threatening to insert certain vegetables into my bottom as I'm a "right-wing tosser"! Nice! Plus McEgan" has paid me at least two visits in my comments sections. We're all on those fuckers' radar now!

Have a good Christmas Gotty, and all the very best. Hope to see you ranting away in various comments sections in the near future.

And just remember, you did bust in the Wikio top 30 not so long ago. Bet that pleased the Fat Poof and his lefty mates  :)

Captain Haddock said...

What can I say which hasn't already been said Gotty ?

The world of free-speech is a poorer place for your going .. the light burns dimmer by the week, with the passing of each Blogger ..

Thanks for all the exposes, laughs, rants & for providing me with the vehicle to get a lot off my own chest ..

Have a Happy Christmas & a peaceful New Year ..

Who knows ? .. Perhaps you'll return refreshed & ready to take on those who seek to drag the rest of us down to their pathetic, multi-culti, tofu-knitting, limp-wristed Leftie ways .. I certainly hope so ... 

Caratacus said...

A little learning - almost certainly. At least I can fucking spell.

Beware of Geeks Bearing GIFs said...

Indeed, a cracking post - Gotty, you gotta stay - your talents are inspirational - take a nice break over Christmas or go shopping today and write another great posting about the great unwashed greedily doing their last bit of Christmas shopping, fighting like ferrets over the last box of BOGOF Ferrero Rocher "Ambassador you are surely a cheapskate" edition.

English Lady said...

NO! You can't go!

Adam said...

Gonna miss your posts Gotty. You always had a special place in my bookmarks.
I hope you get yourself a new keyboard and come back!

Sean O'Hare said...

I'm hoping it is just pre-Christmas blues and Gotty will be back in the new year.  If not then the year will be getting off to a shaky start.

All the best mate, and have a good rant in private.

AnthonyS said...

That's one less person to butt-fuck the BBC on a regular basis... you cunt, G.O.T.

I suppose we will have redouble our efforts.

Take care, G.O.T. 8-)

Chairman said...

I've never really commented before Gotty, but your blog has provided me with some eye-opening information, some bloody good laughs and some genuine smiles.

So, thanks. Good luck with whatever you decide to do now.

LOL. said...

Thought you were taking a break? This appears to be hasty,a few weeks isn't time enough to recover from blog burn-out.

But a half hearted post for X-Mas would be nice. ;)

Then hang up a sign "Out for Lunch"and take a proper breather from it all.After that you will be as good as new.

nomine said...

When its time to go , its time to go!
Thanks for all the laughs you have given and like many others you have always been a daily must read for me since first finding your blog.
Good wishes for the future and do send me a link to your new blog whenever that may become your intention, rats! and there was me hoping for a linky thing off of you too...ahhh well!

Heads on poles said...

Thanks for everything Gotty.
I've loved your blog from the moment I found it and will be very sorry to see you go.
If you come back, you will be welcomed with open arms so please make a splash if you decide to do so.
Look after yourself my friend.

The Lakelander said...

Very sad to see you go.

My daily reading list is getting shorter all the time it seems and I know it's often difficult to find things to post about. It makes you realise what a gift the last government was to bloggers like us.

Look forward to seeing you back when your bile is up again.

Meanwhile - have a great Christmas.

microdave said...

Fuck me Gotty, us men aren't supposed to show emotion, and I'm trying to type this with tears rolling down my face.  I can't add to what has already been said above - with the exception of one noteable fuckwit.....

Have a good Christmas buddy, and hope to see you about somewhere in the future.

If you change your mind Gotty please come back straight away in your present incarnation? There's so much twatishness about and it seems to be increasing by the hour.

Derek said...

All these people coming out the woodwork who seldom posted - but read loads.
Will miss some humour, and caustic comment, but you'll be in there somewhere as we all are. And when the times comes, maybe cracking some skulls either literally or physically.

Keep the flame burning.

IanPJ said...

Gotty,

Days like this reach us all eventually. Many of those who have commented above have been there, and returned, I have even tried giving it up myself, but had to come back.

There is always something to say, and in your case there is an audience eager to read it, I look forward to reading your next post at some time in the future...

Enjoy the quiet and the internet solitude over Christmas and New Year, but if you are half the blogger I know you to be, you won't be able to resist..

See you in 2011

ArtCo said...

Hope to see you back Gotty, you made me smile in the morning when the postman gave me shit.
Merry Xmas and all that shite.

tinks said...

Oh dear, this is a sad day. Always enjoyed your posts and your perspective.

It's not the end, merely the beginning of the end' to misquote the big jowelled mutt.

When I first saw it, I thought someone had a gun to your head, but you and yours are the most important thing. Life will go on, and unfortunately the shit will continue. Bloggers like you have been a breath of fresh are and given insight where others in the MSM have failed.

In whatever you do good luck.

And thanks,

Bugger!  I always enjoyed your blog rather a lot.  Didn't always comment, but then I didn't always need to.  You said it all for me.  I wish you good fortune in your future endeavours and whatever you plan on doing, keep on shouting!

TYKE said...

 Sorry to read your announcement Gotty and I hope you consider a comeback, Be well Be lucky and Thanks                                                                                                                          Flogging Dead Horses.
FROM the dawn of consciousness, the vast majority of human kind have laboured under the pearl of wisdom that if one finds one's self to be riding a dead horse, then, the best thing to do is to dismount and hence refrain from the futile exercise of flogging the poor demised beast.
However, there exist a series of strategies, regarding precisely how a dead horse can be motivated to be more efficient and effective.
Namely by:
Buying a stronger whip.
Changing riders.
Appointing a committee to study the horse.
Undertaking a productivity study in order to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse's performance.
Arranging to visit other countries to see how others ride dead horses.
Re-classifying the dead horse as 'living impaired'.
Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse's performance.
Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, then it is less costly and hence carries lower overheads and thus can be tolerated.
Meanwhile,

Caratacus said...

Meanwhile, in a drive for greater efficiency, the Coalition has bought another dead horse from the pikeys up the road (a snip at £71.5bn) and laid it beside the first dead horse. They can now go twice as fast as before and have declared this a great success; the previous administration had only relied on a dead donkey - a laughable state of affairs which only goes to prove to the British electorate how unfitted the socialists are for government.

I will now proceed to lick this window....

Shame though..... it really is one of the few blogs that the rest of us measure ourselves by.

GOT, don't do it. Give it a rest for a few months until your inspiration returns. Those of us who post at least something everyday understand the pressure you feel to post something. But the first thing is to enjoy it and until you do again, fuck it.

Sorry to see you go. You may be a bit too much of a Daily Mail reader, 'citizen' and 'true believer' for my taste but you always shot from the hip (I blame viagra) and called it like you see it. Most importantly you allowed everyone else the same freedom and you recognised that THAT was the single most british thing of 'britishness'.  I'll miss your daily diatribes and, often, wrong headedness.
