  1. I was told forty odd years ago when I started my working life, that the age of retirement would be down to sixty if not lower when I was due to retire. Instead the age of retirement went up, for me to sixty-six. If our government follow the advice of a right-wing think tank, a group that also helped in the introduction of the unpopular universal credit system, then in a few years time the age you will be able to claim your state pension will have risen to seventy-five. Maybe all MPs should be made to retire from Parliament and take up jobs that requires manual work. Allowing people who have have grafted for the passed forty years to be able to sit on a comfy green seat, wave a piece of paper about while making a noise like a distressed donkey for the rest of their working life. Oh and the name of this wonderful think tank? The centre for social justice. If this group is really concerned about injustices in our society. Perhaps their chairperson, Iain Duncan Smith can get them to come up with a solution that will stop the increase in child poverty and the rise in the cases of malnutrition being treated by the NHS. Why is there in the last ten years, a fifty percent increase in the disease kwashiorkor. A disease that causes the stomachs of children to swell. A site we only usually see on the tv during a charity appeal, to help feed the starving of Africa.
  2. Unless he's a world class player, I think no one player is capable of filling the gap left by the loss of two good pl from our midfield. Mount and Wilson had the benefit of having each other for support in an other wise average midfield. Until Dowell gets more support from other midfield players when we are attacking, then I don't think we will see the best of his abilities.
  3. Never took any interest in who the Ramstrust are, why they were formed or what their objectives are. But anyone who calls themselve's their spokesperson shouldn't be saying anything about the club that is in any way detrimental to the club.
  4. No good having wingers who can get to the byline if we don't have enough bodies getting into the box, to make use of any crosses into the box.
  5. No. The evidence shows that the number of Mexicans entering the USA had started declining ten years before Trump entered office. So Trump and his build the wall chant as no bearing on the number of Mexicans crossing the border. As for making the world a less save place. I could go to the effort of of giving you facts on what he's said and the action he as taken that is not only affecting the lives of individuals but also the environment. But as you have clearly stated your opinions are bias and you appear to not want to or can't understand facts that are contrary to them when they are presented to you, there no point in doing so.
  6. Oh you meant the quran, the book that god sent the archangel Gabrial to give to Muhammad the same Gabrial who told Mary she was preggers with Jesus and was also described as the guardian angel of Israel. With you mentioning a holy book that promotes murder I wrongly assumed you were referring to the bible. The one that as the second man on earth killing the third man on earth. But god didn't seem to perturbed by this as there is a number of other murderers throughout the bible. Never read either book , in fact I've never read any religious book, unless Dan Brown's Angels and Demons counts. Just going on what I was force feed at school. Isn't religion a wonderful invention, the biggest cause of death around the world.
  7. There's no difference between either group of indoctrinated murderers. No matter how some people try to portray them.
  8. If the President of the USA openly tells his own people that Mexicans are flooding into America to cheat, rob and rape. He may not have said the words kill them but the vile hate he spouted was certainly enough of an incitement, as shown by the El Paso massacre. What he said may not be classified by law as an incitement to murder. But he like many others who preach hatred to others know how to incite their supporters to commit violence, while not committing a crime themselves.
  9. Isn't one of the main reasons given as to why certain followers of Islam commit these heinous crimes, is that they have been radicalized by the hate preached by various imams. So one can only sumise that any white supremacist, if not likewise fully radicalized, will have at the very least have a feeling of empowerment to commit their crimes, by the rhetoric of numerous leading figures. With Trump being one of the main protagonists
  10. Not sure what you're getting at? Are you complaining that the media aren't reporting the amount of mass shootings committed by white supremacists, or that they're not being identified as white supremacist attacks in the first place. Also if every white supremacist attack isn't reported as such, then the media don't need to point out the attacks are an isolated incident and doesn't represent the views of all white people or is it more specifically other white supremacists. It may help if many politicians, especially in the USA, stopped claiming the perpetrators were suffering from mental health problems instead of calling them out to what they are, white supremacists. Don't recall that many politicians labelling people with mental issues after Islamic attacks.
  11. Unless you can show proof it's a fact. It's just an unsubstantiated opinion.
  12. This is taking longer than Lampard's move to Chelsea. Maybe something a little easier.
  13. Sky Sports probably needed a game to fill a gap in their schedule.
  14. How can you say Trump is honest. After all the 'alternative facts' he has spouted. The mans a congenital liar.
  15. So who are we going to get drawn against in the third round of the FA Cup? So the media can have a feeding frenzy. Everton or Man U.
  16. That will be a lot of Christmas presents easily sorted this year. Also the marketing of half season tickets should be fairly easy for the Derby County sales team this year.
  17. Feeling a bit deflated if Rooney isn't arriving until January. It's a bit like the old joke about a woman who buys her husband a season ticket for his favourite football team but doesn't give it him till Christmas. On the upside, him not coming till January should help stop the annual new year slump.
  18. Not quite parking on Pride Park, but if anyone uses the council run Sovereign car park on Canal Street on match days. You can now only pay by card via your phone, using an app or a telephone number.
  19. That was a long second half. A lot of work still needed to be done on our midfield, before it becomes an effective unit. A midfield that is capable of helping win the ball, when we are under pressure defensively. Then have the ability to retain the ball while moving it up the pitch. Something we failed to do in the second half so every long ball kicked up the pitch came straight back at us.
  20. No. But as most of the money to be spent was already in the NHS kitty, there isn't an actual extra £1.8bn injection. It's the beginning of a PR exercise by the tory party in the lead up to a GE.
  21. Didn't realize that he'd get so excited delivering new season tickets.
  22. Mmmm yes the much maligned big red bus. Nice to see it's capable of producing money, before we have even left the EU. So where's the next five weeks worth of money going to be spent?
  23. As Johnson announced the £1.8bn one off payment to the NHS, that will be used to purchase new equipment and upgrade twenty hospitals. It will be interesting to see which parts of the country will be the beneficiaries of all these wonderful modernised hospitals. Will it be the areas where the hospitals are in most need of immediate funding or will it go to to hospitals that happen to sit within the boundaries of marginal constituencies. If you're going to use money from the fabled magical money tree as a bribe, in readiness for an impending general election. Where would the best place be to spend it.
  24. No change from last season, Patrick Bamford still acting like a bamford
  25. Have you considered moving to Australia permanently?
