    Also, it may have already been mentioned months ago so I apologise, but,
    Once upon a time in Iraq. 
    On BBC iplayer. 
    5 part documentary on the story of Iraq told by interviews from Iraqi civilians, US journalists, US army, Isis activists. 
    It starts from the 2nd Iraq war in 2013 through to the ISIS invasion in 2019.
    You tend to forget what actually happened over those 6 years, and the insight given by the interviews are fascinating.
    You end up feeling so sorry for the normal Iraqi people, they got shafted. 
    Brilliant 5 episodes.

    Agreed - how these two can think they belong in any sort of elite league is beyond me. Very little quality from either side.....

    Falkirk, Dunfermline, Dundee and Shrewsbury. 5/1
    I toyed with Sheffield Wed, but went with the Shrews instead.

    It gets slower..... much slower. 
    It oozes quality and attention to detail but by series 3 or 4 (I think) the snail-like pace finally got the better of me. Really wanted to love it but for me it was a bit style over substance. Some great actors and a really good era but I much prefer Peaky Blinders as a comparison of a interesting, fast moving period piece.

    I gave up on it first time around after a couple of episodes but when it was repeated decided to give it a bit more of a chance. Well worth sticking with - you won't regret it.

    The concept of the 'undeserving poor' has been a trope of the ruling classes and their apologists for centuries. It's what has allowed them to force people into inhuman living conditions, working 18-hour shifts in mills with no safety procedures in the nineteenth century. The whole 'poor people spend money on fags and booze' is just the modern version of that.

    Before we cut public services I'd rather see us cut the amount of money being poured in to companies (that are unable to provide the services they advertise) with links to Tories in the name of COVID, but parliament don't get the chance to vote on that so that wont happen will it?
    I know this post is straying in to politics and that's a big no-no these days, but the absolute brass neck on this government to say we cant help feed some kids but we can keep chucking money at companies (that they get to pick at their own discretion) with no accountability or oversight is absolutely disgusting.

    They discussed it on Question time last night.
    4 of the 5 panelists and all the members of the audience fully backed him and giving children free meals until the summer. 
    My ex MP, Nicky Morgan, unbelievably turned it into a political point scoring exercise and wouldn't back the proposed motion.  
     The stance people take just to align themselves with political sides makes me despair and frustrated.

    This, a million times over. It pisses me off when people go on about parents’ responsibilities.
    This isn’t about the parents, it’s about the kids. Unless, instead of free school meals, we sent every child a letter to give to their parents, telling them to work harder?

    As a teacher, I have discovered that now matter how much you believe that its a parent's responsibility to feed their child, that belief doesn't actually feed hungry children.
    I don't need to look at my data to know which kids are on FSM. You can tell by the way they eat their lunch.

    Haven't read much on this thread today, but most of the debate has tended to be lockdowns are a necessary evil vs lockdowns are not needed. Not much of the debate has been any left vs right and the thing most people seem to agree on is that Johnson and his friends have really messed it up.

    You can never cancel the true meaning of Christmas.
    It will be incredibly tough for many people who have never had such hardship.
    Life for so many others pre Covid was already a fight to put food in their bellies and find shelter for their families.
    I think we would be best to remember the luxuries for what they are, a luxury, and remember that life itself along with family and friends are currently far more important. 
    And for those who struggle I would hope we as a Derby county community will extend our hands to help in any way we can.

    Can't knock his track record and he'd fancy it since I don't think a PL club would go for him.

    Big Sam. A good man manager & will get the best out the players, can grind out results, knows how to get out the division & a myth he plays rubbish football.
    He works with what he has & might play unattractive football to get results at first but his Bolton side were a good team. Given time he'd have started playing good stuff at west ham just did what he had to do to get them up & stay up. Some Clubs just have a downer on him because he doesn't instantly play good stuff
    Available for nothing, experienced & proven. Be a good appointment. Leave Rooney playing for a couple of years while he still can
