    Mafiabob reacted to GenBr in The Politics Thread 2019   
    I do not believe the Lib Dem support will be concentrated enough to make any significant impact other than taking a few seats from the Tories (which of course may cause another hung parliament), but I do believe if he actually sorts Brexit out and Labour don't change their leader the Tories will be heading for a landslide. I would rather prefer the Lib Dems to take over as number 2, but I don't think it will happen - could be wrong though and they may very well benefit enormously from Labours tepid campaigns of late. I would also expect the SNP to improve their performance in another GE.
    I don't think it is possible for Labour to form a majority on their own as long as Corbyn is in charge. His policies are old fashioned and will not resonate with most voters. The only areas of support that the Labour party managed to cling on to in the last election correspond closely to the old coal mining areas primarily in the north midlands/South Yorkshire/North East/North West/South Wales plus London who will never vote for anyone else. Now his party are pushing him to take a more pro-EU stance I don't think it will go down well in any of those areas bar London, but best of luck to them. Many traditional labour voters hated New Labour, but I genuinely think the only way they will ever form a government without a coalition will be if another Tony Blair type MP becomes party leader and takes them back in that direction.

    This is why I think Labour are done..... you may not agree with either Boris or Jo Swinsons opposite stances..... but they have a policy and it will win them both big votes.

    When one considers the question in terms of 1500 years of struggle for power in Ireland, and the bloodshed on both sides, no-one was right. 
    When viewed in the narrower context of reaction to, for instance the Manchester pub bombings, or Enniskillen, or Brighton Grand Hotel, there is a right side and a wrong side of history. Corbyn was the wrong side of the line.
    Aaaah, but what about Bloody Sunday, or the Dublin and Monaghan bombings, I hear you cry...well the one doesn't set the other right.
    When things are shitty and people are being killed and dispossesed, a person should pick a side and own it warts and all. WW2 was right and proper to fight...but Dresden though? The rape of Berlin? You want to wring hands or end naziism?
    Corbyn's an idealist, unfortunately, idealists tend to get nothing done, and people killed while they do it. People are not ideal, are stupid, selfish and irrational in fact, and do not confirm to theory.

    Whilst it’s hard to argue against your opinion on Wilson given he hasn’t played at that level yet, Lingard has played over 100 games for Man Utd and been capped many times for England, as well as being an integral part of the team that reached the WC semi final.
    He has already established himself as being good enough for a top level team.

    One could argue that providing ineffective opposition is an enabler.

    This is silly though, he has no control over the fee? 
    If we go on this then any player costing >£80m should be individually winning a team 15-20 points a season but they don't. That doesn't make them bad players. Just that the fee paid for them is out of their control.

    She is probably slowing down a bit. Graeme probably needs to be at home passing on instructions. A house can get proper untidy at this point, and nobody wants to come home to dirty dishes or a basket of ironing.

    We dont need Mount, we have Dowell and Holmes. We do need Tomori though, Burton got behind us on the Tomori side quite abit. His pace would make sure that doesn't happen, as often. We need him back.

    I would say it’s not a expensive mistake, but a bit of genius marketing from PP, got people talking, and they know full well they can’t advertise like that on shirts. Met one or two from PP in line of stuff they do, marketing wise, along with SkyBet, miles ahead of the rest

    How many of our youngsters have promotion experience? Dowell has, in a position where we are short on bodies. Low financial risk and proven quality, I don't really understand your objection?

    Unfortunately Derby County  have been overtaken by the clubs that used to be our whipping boys back in the day .Tell a youngster that Spurs ,Arsenal ,Man U etc  were regularly turned over by the Rams and they look at you gone out .We are where we are and we need to get used to it, we have been left behind  even by clubs such as Bournemouth etc.

    A great couple of days in Florida watching the Supers. 
    Great to speak with Mel, he was super down to earth, friendly and open about what is going to be the plan this season etc. 
    one thing that surprised me was that after both/all three games that the only player from Derby to acknowledge the fans at all was Keogh, not one other player even clapped any of the fans at the end of the game. Keogh on the other hand came over to the fans and took his time to speak to everyone there and thanked them for coming etc. the rest of the players and staff just walked off. 
    Compare that tor Bristol City who were all sat in the stands arching the game, kicking balls around with their fans afterward and generally interacting a lot.  
    Small things I know but some fans had travelled a long way to watch It I would have thought a few minutes out of their time wouldn’t have hurt them.
