Champagne socialists - e.g. those who profess to be socialists and then send their offspring to non-comprehensives, fee-paying or otherwise.

Celebrities who like to be seen being 'charitable'.

People who buy a daily coffee and sandwiches/lunch at work and then complain that they have no money. Learn to budget for Heaven's sake.

Toothpaste ads with a fawning Dentist saying how wonderful it is to give it credibility. FFS it is just a mild abrasive in cream or solution of some sort and flouride. The best toothpaste is charcoal and salt and do it with a twig, which is why African tribesmen have such good teeth.

Dentists and Vets - both rip-off slurpers.

Politicians, and politics in general.

The #1 most irritating (and dangerous) politician at the mo is Trump.

Have you ever seen a footballer who admits to anything. They could kick an opponent into the stands and they would still say it is his fault.

I would like it but that is two or three holidays, no way maybe when I was younger and more purist, now I just like what plays music. AND we are all operating on hearsay as none of us have ever heard one. I don't think even one was imported new into the UK.
