    Eric Steele maybe a better match summarizer, than some of his predecessors. But I'd rather he spent any spare time he had down at Moor Farm coaching our goalkeepers.

    The NUM slogan during that strike was "coal not dole". Not extra pay, not trying to break the government (break them in the sense they would have to concede ground yes). I think the slogan "coal not dole" summed up the situation. Miners wanted work, Thatcher was prepared to do whatever it took to prevent it.

    Don't be ridiculous......you must realise by now that Britain invented the colour blue and it is therefore an essential and integral expression of our national identity. 
    If it ain't blue  it isn't British. It's our tradition dating back to woad.
    Obviously we license the colour blue so that eg Croatia can use it for their passports. It's another example of our great British nation showing its ingenuity dontcha know.
    Or alternatively it might be utter b******s......🤣

    Why do some people need to have a blue passport, what so special about the colour blue? Half the countries of the world appear to have a blue passport. My passport can be printed with yellow and pink stripes for all I care, so long as it allows me to travel to wherever I wish to in the world.

    Yes a win would be nice.  But after three 3-0 loses in London, I'd be happy to see Squid's streak of 1-1 draws extended to three.

    We're told there's 8 million economically inactive people, who Priti Patel deems aren't doing enough, and wouldn't allow them to live here if they weren't British. I wonder how many more of us wouldn't qualify for a visa from the Home Secretary, if we had to apply to live in our own country?
    Along with the former No10 employee wanting a section of the population sterilized, who knows how many people, he and his employers consider to be members of the underclass. Only suitable for low paid unskilled jobs. 
    So besides the brightest and the best who does Johnson want joining him on board the great ship Britannia as it sails to his promised golden future. Who'll be in first class and how many will be consigned to steerage or maybe the bilges, where they can man the pumps to keep the ship afloat, while Johnson and his cronies sit happily on the upper deck.

    Took the the test, using the last engineering job I was offered, before I became economically inactive, as the benchmark. Looks as if I wouldn't have been plying my trade here. Good job I'm a blue passport carrying, Englishmen.

    Just to clarify, the reason I'm not a WASP (presuming you're on about the discussion in the Max Lowe thread) is because I'm technically a (non-practising) Catholic! As you can imagine, I've received absolutely no discrimination in my life. Apart from, perhaps, Catholics themselves who disapprove of certain solo practices!

    Diane Abbott gets mocked for a mistake, with people, including individuals on this forum, saying how can someone like her be trusted to hold any responsible position in a future government.
    Unfortunately this present government as already given an idiot an actual position of responsibility, when making Priti Patel Home Secretary. A  person who can only reiterate the same memorized sound bite answers to any question put to her. As shown in various clips posted on this forum. Worryingly she's not the only cabinet minister guilty of this.

    So the country can't spend extra money on public services, unless there are cuts elsewhere in the budget.
    There is an alternative that would generate the extra money, that needs to be spent on public services. That's to ensure all the companies and individuals who are presently not paying their fair share into the country's coffers are made to do so.

    Yes the new British immigration points system that as just been announced. A scheme that Priti Patel is claiming will attract the best and the brightest, to come and work here. While leaders in the business community are claiming that it will cause a shortage of workers in certain low paid sectors. 
    Shouldn't the government have consulted with these business leaders before they implemented their immigration system. 
    More worryingly for the future, if the high skilled well paid jobs are being filled by foreigners. Could this encourage companies to stop investing in the training of our next generation of workers. Meaning that the only jobs available to them is low paid unskilled jobs, when they leave school.

    So you don't care. You don't care about public services or you don't care about my opinion?
    I believe we are seeing the destruction of public services based on my experiences with the system over the last few years as me Dad succumbed to Alzheimers.
    Public services have been decimated , the social care act of 2012 slashed the budgets to councils, many people have died prematurely because of this.  Its harder than ever to manage for a lot of us who depend on public services.

    Apparently a number of tory MPs are unhappy with Johnson and No10 regarding the scrapping of the licence fee and the treatment of the BBC.
    Johnson and conservative central made sure all their MPs would toe the line over brexit but when it comes to other issues Johnson may not get it all his own way. He appears to be already backing away from his proposed Mansion Tax, due to many disgruntled conservative voices.
