  1. Sol to Huddersfield? He’s done well at Macclesfield & the timing is interesting.
  2. From what I read yesterday, the Lib Dems are concerned that there wouldn't be a temporary government if Corbyn was going to be the leader because he wouldn't be able to bring everyone in behind him. For it to happen, you'd need a couple of Tory rebels to vote against the government - twice. That ain't going to happen if they'd be voting with JC. Far more likely with Clarke or Harman-type people. I think the Lib Dems are just facing facts and arithmetic. Glad someone is talking sense for a change.
  3. Liverpool would have won the Premier League last season if.... ...it wasn't for those meddling kids!
  4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-49319760 Love this. So simple but really could save lives. What3words essentially points to a very specific location. Its developers divided the world into 57 trillion squares, each measuring 3m by 3m (10ft by 10ft) and each having a unique, randomly assigned three-word address.
  5. Haha, really?. I'd wager that saying: ".....between the "left" (who want to change the centre ground to be fairer to everyone regardless of their characteristics) and the "right" (who want to change the centre ground to be fairer towards only those that they feel deserve fairer treatment" ....makes it pretty clear which you think is the better option.
  6. Eh?. I was just disappointed that an interesting post of yours then reverted to type.
  7. I quite like the first bit of the poem but it just goes on far too long & gets increasingly shrill. Cut it down to a rousing 20-30 seconds & you might even get some of the crowd joining in.
  8. Camping in Norfolk next week. Mon-Fri I think. Probably should check that....
  9. I think if it wasn't for the financial crisis, we'd still be in a largely centrist world now. Once that happened, and with the rapid rise of global (chinese) and online competition for business, everyone was looking for someone to blame and things became polarised. So, left "fair" = good & right "fair" = bad. "Fairness" isn't a good measure of anything because it's completely subjective.
  10. I've recently swapped my BMW F31 320D tourer (lovely car) for an 18 plate 2.0D X1, mainly cos Mrs Wolfie has chronic back issues and the extra height is ideal for her. I like the X3 but would have been hammered on road tax and the X1 is bigger than I expected - more boot & passenger space than the 3 series estate. My X1 is just as economical and I would say still really fun to drive. It doesn't get the admirers like my black M Sport estate used to, though. I used to have a few comments about what a lovely looking car it was.
  11. I used to have a 2000 year 1.6 in silver. I've had much faster cars but I've never had a car that's as much fun to drive - just throw it at a corner at seemingly any speed and enjoy the ride (on a dry road, mind).
  12. The one who said the rhyme, did the crime😉
  13. Even he was embarrassed by how many times he said (unconvincingly) that he’s looking forward to it. Stupid hair as well🙄
  14. Oh god, is "secondary Assists" a thing now? 🤢

    I can't see Giroud without thinking..
  16. There isn't really a good measure of poverty but I'm genuinely surprised by some of those. How come Hungary is so much better than neighboring and similar economies?. How come we are only marginally worse than Sweden, when their high tax & high social security regime is opften pointed to as the way to go. But then I've just found this... ...which is based on: According to the methodology used by Eurostat, those severely deprived cannot afford at least four of the following items, which are considered by most people to be desirable or necessary to lead an adequate life: - to pay their bills on time; - to keep their home adequately warm; - to meet unexpected expenses; - eat meat (or fish or the vegetarian equivalent) regularly; - take a one week holiday away from home; - a TV; - a washing machine; - a car; - a telephone. I reckon this is a better measure of poverty than choosing some arbitrary percentage of average income.
  17. I've never been a fan of Wayne Rooney.
  18. Gotta love autocorrect🙄😆
