    TBF most of them are young kids - and on minimum wage. Not exactly a job with prospects either is it? I feel sorry for them
    To get staff to try and give damn, you need to attract better staff, and that involves paying better wages - for a company that probably has pretty slim margins hawking sub-standard beer and "food" at a captive audience - why would they bother? Capitalism is great isn't it?

    I hope the name Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe haunts him for the entire time he’s PM. 
    Not a day should go by without that name being brought up

    Not necessarily - it may just be that the company with the catering contract have made a complaint to the club about the amount of people contravening the policy and therefore the club have made a formal restatement of the policy for the sake of expediency. We simply don't know. Nor will we find out.
    It's a bit unfair on @David to expect him to say anything other than what he's said, knowing that he/the forum have a good relationship with the club. Even if Mel gave him a massive wink* as he said it, he wouldn't be able to repeat that in public would he
    I don't think there is much else to say about it until the season starts and we see whether the stewarding changes dramatically in regard to the policy

    Indeed - whether you like him or not (and most on here don't like him) we have a leader of the opposition who despite a constant smear campaign in the media against him is now stood in parliament facing his
    3rd Tory leader
    3rd Lib dem leader
    3rd Green party leader
    7th UKIP leader
    But he's the weak one?

    I know the policy has been in place for years but never enforced - unless there was a major breach (like a group of lads bringing in a 48 pack of Stella  and sitting in the concourse getting wasted) and that seemed a sensible approach. If they plan to actively police it going forward then we are all in for a world of pain
    When I think for all the years when I took my son on his own growing up, from when he was aged 6 onwards - we took our own soft drinks and snacks. Not because we hate the club or want to divert revenue away from them, but because the queues were massive and the concourse was no place to spend half time or pre-match with a small child. He (quite rightly) wanted to be in the stand soaking up the atmosphere and watching the entertainment. Not being jostled and hemmed in by a load of half-cut people spilling drinks on him.

    Nonetheless - sympathy with a cause is very different to agreeing with the tactics of terror. There are plenty of direct quotes from Corbyn on the Irish conflict condemning the bloodshed from both sides. He's a pacifist. Not like there weren't terrorist acts from paramilitary civilian organisations (UDA & UVF) on the other side of the conflict. Plus the British Army hardly covered itself in glory at times over there. Which side was in the right?

    Come on - no one "worships" terrorists. You don't seriously believe that do you? it's not exactly helpful political discourse to suggest so is it.
     
    Anyway - it's Boris - official. How long before the resignations start and the vote of no confidence?

    Boris Johnson being named Prime Minister reminds me of when Derby signed Conor Sammon.
    I never thought I would play for Derby but Sammon showed me never to give up on my dreams.  
    One day I could be Prime Minister.

    Do you still consider yourself an abitrary centrist who sees both sides of all arguments? Because if so then it does seem odd how you continually defend the extreme right and never have a good word to say about anyone even vaguely left of centre. Whether you admit it or not, you are incredibly biased against one side. Or is it that you don't feel you need to point out that the right have gone too far because it's so blatantly obvious that fascism is rapidly on the rise?

    We have not won Brexit until it has been delivered hopefully Boris will get us over the line in October.
    The vast majority of people who want a 2nd vote/stop Brexit are anti democratic left wing zealots they are a complete embarrassment to this country what more evidence do you need?
    If the left get away with stopping Brexit it will empower them to do the same against any democratic vote they do not like, they are not socialists they are communists.
    As for a shot not being fired the left folk who revere the IRA for its struggle for independence but do not afford the same admiration for Brexiteers who want their own independence are shocking, a perfect example of the left double standards and hypocrisy.

    Wouldn’t it be amazing if this guy came out, and then at the very next match there were rainbow flags and all sorts and a massive round of applause when his name’s announced, totally drowning out any idiots. Sending out a massive message to any other gay footballers out there. 
    Would be fitting for it to happen at PRIDE park.

    But by this logic, we don’t need black awareness campaigns and equality measures because slavery has been gone for over 200 years and basically people aren’t really racist these days. 
    Theres still a long way to go for a black baby to be born and not be instantly on the back foot compared to a white baby in exactly the same circumstances. Likewise with gay people. 
    That awareness still needs to be raised, the equality measures still need to be enacted. 
    It’s great that it doesn’t matter to you. But there’s a lot of homophobes out there for whom it does matter. My views have changed so much over the past 20 years that I can scarcely believe these people exist and assume everyone is as tolerant as me, but they really do exist, and intolerance is still the default setting for a lot of people.
    even if they try their best to keep a lid on it, and it only rears it’s head in a heated moment at a football match where the n word or similar slips out. There’s a difference between taking the talk and really believing it.
    i get what your saying, I really do. I used to argue til I was blue in the face that words are just words, and it’s how you say them or mean them that’s important. I argued so much that I tried to prove a point, whilst probably too drunk to make the point with any eloquence. Ended up shouting in a mates girlfriends face that she was a fat bitch, til I kind of forgot what point I was trying to make. She unsurprisingly ran off crying, and he nearly punched me. We haven’t really spoken since.
    i was trying to be too cerebral about it. But really hurtful words are just hurtful. End of.

    Well you might be ok Jack, but down here in the home counties, my life is made a misery by those godamn Antifa clowns. When I go into London it's even worse. They are the greatest threat to the native people of the uk. Finally we are going to get a PM like Trump who will call these "watermelon smilers" out for what they are.
    The left has gone way way too far in supporting equal rights for non-white males. You can't even openly abuse those "letterbox" women anymore. Unless you are PM.
    Why can't the far left just be like the sane and moderate right, who, lest we forget, won the Brexit referendum without one single shot been fired.

    Well thats politics in a nutshell, anyone that genuinely wants whats best for society has their own idea of how to achieve it.  My personal belief, as stated, is that the left have vacated the center ground and are the root cause of Trump et al.  I can't really blame Trump for being Trump, but I can criticise the left for being incoherent and not being strong enough to challenge him.
    But here we are, and as they say, there's more than one way to skin a cat 👍
    And with that, its a good time for a break.  I'll just keep my eye on the transfer forum until the season kicks off.  COYR!

    Sadly I would agree with much of what you say here, but I don't think we share much in the way of politics. 
    I see the rise of political correctness but don't rage against it. I'll support what's fair for everyone, so on balance I'll support some form of positive discrimination, in an attempt to equalise things. 
    I personally don't see those things that offend you about the left, as particularly left wing aims. I think left politics is about class struggle, and it always was. The identity politics is a side issue that is turning away support for the Labour Party, but it is an important side issue that I think the left needs to get its head around. Sometimes people focus on it over and above real left politics, that is supporting working people improve their working conditions. 
    And much of the objection raised against the behaviour of the left honestly feels like a response to issues raised by the right, like a bogeyman. I hear a lot about antifa on here as an example of what's wrong with "the left" but I've never heard of or seen them. 
    Honestly I think most of the anti-Antifa rhetoric is generated by the people who stand to gain by demonising opposing fascism. If you're anti-Antifa in this country, considering there's no movement I can point to, I'd have to say you either are listening to people with an agenda, or have that agenda. Fa, to cancel the double negative.
