Absolutely heart breaking, this was the safest most friendly social media type of site that I have ever come across. It is such a shame that it can't continue, I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss it.

Thank you to everyone who has been so kind and fun to be around for so long, I'm going to miss you all as much as the site

To say the 5 years flew by and I haven't enjoyed every second of it would be an understatement. From the daily sports stories to the up-to-date news in politics to the hot gossip with celebs to literally EVERYTHING in between, these past years have been a roller coaster of excitement and joy, and to see this news, is most definitely heartbreaking.

The community alone made this site feel safe with obviously advanced help from the LCB team. It has been a pleasure to be a part of it!

I’m gutted LCB has been wound up. It truly feels like the end of an Era. It’s been rewarding, frustrating, great fun, infuriating and every emotion in-between! There’s been some top quality banter with Bison, Milka and Bad_Frank (who I consider to be my arch antagonist!!), and there’s been a sense of reasoned balance injected into the comments by Trinity.

In the politics section I must say I’m thrilled that LCB outlasted Trumps presidency by some measure, whilst calling BULL on many political outrages primarily committed by Johnson and his Tory lickspittles.
LCB has also covered many, many different aspects of sport, primarily I’d say the football took precedence but F1 and the Motorbike racing have also had quality representation.
The Celebs section was rightly dominated by Z-Listers and exposing the tricks they use to flog tat to their “followers” and all their antics alongside the Kardashians and Hollywood elite!
The Entertainment section (one of my faves!) was always “entertaining” with some great scoops on new shows, some bang up to date exclusives and top quality comments.
Health and fitness was dominated over the past two years by Covid, for obvious reasons but fad diets were called out as bull with some useful information gathered about big Pharma as the tricks they try to use to get us to buy products.
Some of the tech news has been quite honestly eye opening and the progression of AI both intriguing and a touch worrying as well and great coverage of Crypto-currency that was nigh on unheard of when LCB first burst onto the scene.


As I wrote earlier It’s been rewarding, frustrating, great fun, infuriating and every emotion in-between, there’s been some, nay, MANY genuine laugh out loud moments, there’s been tantrums, toys thrown out of prams, forceful points of view aired and discussed, sensibly most of the time with valid arguments from all sides. Some discussions even made me change my mind (maybe those French Bulldogs are lovable little rogues after all and not the spawn of devil batpigs) , some discussions confirmed my views further (Trump is a horrible human being) but all in all its been a great learning experience with quality interaction. And its been FUN as well.

Well played to Admin for keeping things safe and sensible without being anyway over bearing and finally..........



Bye-Bye LCB, you may be gone but you’ll never be forgotten.

Really sad to see this news, but completely understand the rationale. Have really enjoyed some great challenging discussions (usually with MDM) and am really going to miss this outlet to safely vent my frustrations as to what is going on in the World.

Well, take care guys - have loved every minute (apart from all the Love Island stories Bison) and wish all regulars all the very best (even MDM!).
