Can someone explain what 'doing a #ff' is? It sounds like something I could do if that would be any help smile Although I am a bit of a technophobe, I am a quick learner!

Good morning

Are you okay NM?

Twitter guide here.

Just jump in and start using Twitter. I do recommend Tweetdeck, if that is not too much new stuff at once. You can have a #frothers column

CSA changes

Please can we add this to our frothing? This government are proposing that single parents should be charged to arrange child maintenance with NRP.

It is outrageous.

I have started a thread in campaigns, but I really, REALLY, feel so strongly about this that I think it's definitely worth fighting on two fronts.

Honestly, I could CRY

Posting on here and on old thread

Do you want to do a guest post on my blog since you don't want it on yours.

Will have a look.

MNBloggers just tweeted to invite us to be members of network

Looks great! Might the #frothers want to join our network...?…

(we'd love tohave you #frothers on board - political debate is v welcome in these uncertain times)

RoyalWelsh Fri 02-Dec-11 11:42:40

charged to arrange child maintenance?? FFS. And there was something else I read about CSA that made my blood... well, froth.

<wanders off frothing at the mouth>

ShirleyKnot Fri 02-Dec-11 11:45:46

I've submitted something to CH today MmeL.

I'm going to copy across to the frothers blog now (if I can remember how to use blogger confused)

Thanks sweetie. I don't know why I've sauddenly frothed up about it all again but I have!

MmeLindor. Fri 02-Dec-11 12:11:34

If you want to froth on my blog anytime, be my guest.

Someone no Twitter just said that she gets £25 a month. What a joke.

ShirleyKnot Fri 02-Dec-11 12:15:19

Latest frothers blog post

Pfft - on the Campaign thread there's a woman who gets...wait for it..£1.36 per week.



Hullygully Fri 02-Dec-11 12:16:29

I don't seem to be able to do anything.

Hopefully this state of affairs isn't permanent.

Waiting for help.

<seethes and froths>

blackoutthexmaslights Fri 02-Dec-11 12:20:17

the csa have always been a joke, my mum was awarded £1 a week for 3 children! the bastard still never paid that

KnottyLocks Fri 02-Dec-11 12:55:49

Checking in. Sorry, been busy with real work.

Shirl, I am shock at the CSA charges. They want to charge and get a cut - or have I read that incorrectly?

Fantastic blog post, my lovely.

I'm trying to sort the twitter thingy... I am totally crappola.

RoyalWelsh Fri 02-Dec-11 12:56:26

Is anyone watching George Aligiah (sp?) he is talking to someone that maintains Jeremy Clarkson should be allowed to say what he said about people on strike 'because he is Jeremy Clarkson.'

Words actually fail me.

KateMiddIeton Fri 02-Dec-11 13:08:00

Found you all. Sorry got busy.

RW, #ff is follow friday. On twitter you use it to show your followers who else is good to follow.

blackoutthexmaslights Fri 02-Dec-11 13:10:50

with that reasoning can we string him up

...because he is jemery clarkson?

KateMiddIeton Fri 02-Dec-11 13:13:02

Oh I dunno. Complaining Jeremy Clarkson is being a twat is a bit like complaining shit stinks. Obvious and pointless.

I don't think it's healthy to give Jezza any more air time, breath or column inches. Like a petulant toddler after the telling off it's best to just ignore.
