I mean his wife did sleep with his brother. Everyone is against him, except his nan and he does love those children.

Ok, tell me I need to get a life confused

David is not the injured party! He waged a campaign of hate and violence before taking Nick out in the van, where he planned to finish him off! He even removed the seatbelt to ensure Nick either died / was more seriously injured.

Just because at the last minute he seemed to change his mind about killing him does not negate what went on before. He was planning to murder him.

Kylie is awful but I think she is a good match for David.

Gail has messed up David all his life. Not only by marrying a string of psychopaths but also by letting him find out she was going to abort him.

Agree the Hayley storyline is dreadful - I just want her to hurry up and die.

Total bitch to Gail and yet she's the one getting the house, kids, sympathy. She's a nasty little cow. Didn't she force Audrey to sign the salon over to her and David cos it was her 'inheritance'. I just hate it when they flip reverse nasty characters.

The stories are soooo badly written. The Hayley story is pants. Just hurry up and die you miserable old bag. And as for Tina and Peter, it really is dire. Who is writing this shit?

Yes about kylie. She's been with David two minutes, was a total butch to Gail and she's the

Kylie's sanctimonious manner and self-pity are sickening. For once I was actually rooting for Gail when she told her off last night,

I've been saying this for ages. David is the injured party here. I can't stand Nick.

What's with the reinvention of Kylie....she was the nasty little bint that sold her child...why doesn't Gail throw her out?

If anyone should leave she should go!

<reminds myself that it is fiction and I need to get out more>

Tina is leaving and I believe that she is going to be killed off.

Didn't David try killing Gayle by throwing her down the stairs? or have I made that up

Not part of the same story but what about Tina? She is chaos. I cannot bear her and wish that she would be killed off. This story with her and Peter is just irritating.

I'm glad Liz is back - she's great in the Rovers.

Also, I'll be glad when Haley dies. Such a miserable story where nothing new happens. Can Roy go with her?

Yadnbu personally some of the blame should lie with Gayle as she brought home just about every rapist serial killer back to the house no wonder he turned out the way he did

I completely agree with the OP! Nick and Kylie have been allowed to get away with everything - their cheating has just been swept under the rug.

Have I got the plot wrong but didn't be just grab the steering wheel in a "stop the van" way not a "I want to kill you" way?

THIS x 1000000000. The plot has felt disjointed ever since.

CaramelisedOnion Mon 16-Dec-13 17:42:28

Me too I feel sorry for David. And loathe Nick. In fact my Facebook status (cringe) recently was "I really really hate Nicky Tildesly he is a complete cunt" blush

SamU2 Sun 15-Dec-13 19:58:52

He didn't try to kill him! Why won't he tell people that?

David turned out as a psychopath because his mother kept marrying psychopaths while he was growing up.

What's going on in his personal life?

deepfriedsage Sun 15-Dec-13 19:48:49

I think they are all messed up, they never heard people in glass houses should not throw stones.

MoominMammasHandbag Sun 15-Dec-13 19:36:15

Well David had been absolutely vile to Kylie and they were pretty much split up when she slept with Nick so David doesn't really have any grounds for complaint as far as I can see.
But I think Jack whatever his name is, is one of the better actors on Corrie, and playing it for sympathy quite skilfully.

tiggytape Sun 15-Dec-13 19:30:17

He deliberately removed Nick's seatbelt before he grabbed the wheel (so that's where the blame re attempted murder comes into it).

He also waged a hate campaign for months before. I think the point was that his reaction was quite chilling. He kept it secret that he knew the truth and just plotted quite extreme revenge tactics instead of having it out with them / ending the relationship

Sparklingbrook Sun 15-Dec-13 19:25:21

Gail had Nick with Brian IIRC. many moons ago, so they are half brothers?

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sun 15-Dec-13 19:22:52

I have no watch corrie for years, how has David got a brother.

mrspremise Sun 15-Dec-13 19:20:32

YABU. He's not real.grin

onedev Sun 15-Dec-13 19:13:51

YANBU grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 15-Dec-13 09:01:28

I know this is irrelevant to the character but isn't the actor's private life a bit hmm too?

MrsDavidBowie Sun 15-Dec-13 09:00:32

I hate his mean little mouth.

And his bouffy hair.

meditrina Sun 15-Dec-13 08:56:15

It wasn't a split second decision. It was the culmination of several months of really horrible hate campaign.

And it's that hate campaign that Kylie and Leanne are both so horrified by, and reacting against.

KittensoftPuppydog Sun 15-Dec-13 08:51:35

I agree that David is now being treated badly, however he did do all of that stuff like smashing up nick and Leanne's and trying to get the bistro shut down too.
Plus it's not real.
