    Yet I'm not surprised at Brexit supporters cynically using someone killed by their extremists to promote themselves. But then again if they can convince themselves that Rees-Mogg and BoJo are on their side, they'll swallow anything.

    No I don't, however that will not stop them trying.  I cannot see any party have a working majority.  Look at the current situation, Johnson is a glove puppet PM, elected by less than 100k tory blue bloods, the cronies that see the working class as a commodity.  He is driving the UK off a cliff, and ERG and associated disaster capitalists will all benefit, whilst the next two generations pick up the pieces.

    Turning that question round to "what do they have to gain from leaving without a deal?" and posing it to Farage, Banks, Rees-Mogg, Johnson, Odey and the other disaster capitalists would be interesting.
    The absolute determination to leave without a deal fills me with dread. I honestly believe these people would trash this country to line their pockets.
    People say Corbyn would take us back to the 1970's, these spivs would take us back to the 1870's.

    Yes.  The tories hate the fact that if you are employed, you have holiday rights, sick pay, mat/pat pay, pensions.  Thatcher tried to block the EU from making it a right that all full time workers have a minimum 20 days paid holiday's that excluded Bank/Public holidays, they opposed the minimum wage, if anyone believes the election pledge to make it £10.50, don't forget to read the next line, 'over the term of the next parliament'.  The list is endless.  Yes, they have stated that all these will remain, however I trust politicians as much as I trust the police.

    You do realise that the quality of a player is not CREATED by the money he cost? There have always been "world class players" since the first international match was played in 1880 or whatever. If your argument is that football as a spectator sport has been enriched by us all having to pay more for it then fair enough
    Personally I've never felt so disassociated from the game. It's all about money these days and that's incredibly sad.

    So you think that football as a sport has been improved by the amount of incredibly rich people buying up clubs, and that the ensuing lack of investment for grass roots football is just an unfortunate by-product. Fair enough, I suspect you’re in the minority but at least be honest about that. You make it sound like you just disagree with it on principle because it’s in Labour’s manifesto

    Makes sense to me.
    To be honest, I'd much rather see football clubs entirely fan owned.  Like they do on much of the continent.  The whole obscenely wealthy owner model makes a nonsense of the sport really. 
    And the Premier League was never a good idea.  Not for the football fan anyway.

    You don't have to go through the insurance companies.  If you have known him for years, and obviously trust him, settle it between you.  Insurance should be a last resort.  If you claim through your insurance, both parties insurance has the realistic possibility of going up.
    Also give him the boiler job, I beat you it will be cheaper than anyone else.  It was an accident, and I expect the vast amount of people have ducked up at some point, especially starting out in the working world for the first time.  Nobody got hurt.

    Let's just be honest - we're an island nation that has always had control of our borders. The EU has nothing to do with who we let in and who we don't
    We have our own visa policy and a common travel area with Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Pretty much all developed nations have visa-free visitor travel here (for stays of up to 6 months).  We have pretty stringent visa requirements for most of Africa and Asia
    Brexit will change nothing. If people want to come here legally and then work here and/or stay here illegally - they will continue to do so,
    It's a false narrative put out by the likes of Farage and his bigoted ilk that appeals to the jingo-istic and the xenophobic who believe that because one Polish guy offered them drugs once, the country is awash with foreign criminals.
    We already have control of our borders - we just choose a particular way of policing them. None of which is forced on us by EU membership
