    I'm sure Theresa May would love to cut the benefits of disabled people in wheelchairs if they fail to stand for the national anthem. It's probably part of the assessment by now.

    Funny how people assume if you're against the hereditary constitutional monarchy then that means you want to flatten all the palaces and line the royal family up against the wall. IT'S NOT THE TOURISM BIT OR THEIR RIGHT TO EXIST THAT WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH
    Anyway - the UK and the royal family are like the US and guns. Everyone knows it's senselessly unjustifiable but we'll never get rid of them

    I wish people would start to be proud of things that they have actually achieved rather than some mere accident of birth that they could do nothing about.

    What’ll that be now, five seasons, five different managers on the opening day?We change bosses like we change kits. 
    Contracts ain’t worth the paper they’re written on.

    I don't get nationalism at all - my birth in Britain was nothing of my making and I have no reason what so ever to feel that somehow I have been gifted the chance to live in the best country in the world. I'm not saying I'm not happy to be here and grateful for the fact I didn't end up being born in some pretty grim corners of the world but I can't help but feel that any time excessive national pride has become a trend in a country it has seldom ended well. Not always in a World War but the many flavours in between are so often tinged with ill feeling for others that I simply can't embrace it.

    Will Hughes!!! That's what I blame him for. Can we have him back now? I mean, it must've been a loan? The amount we got paid was barely enough for a loan, nevermind a transfer.
    I'm grateful for Stoke though.

    I have a sneaky feeling he may have been told he'd be gone if we didn't make the playoffs (after the poor run) and he's now thought sod it and took the opportunity at Stoke

    I remember when the Queen visited Derby in 1977. I had never seen the Queen in the flesh before (or since), so I decided to go down to the Market Place to have a look.
    I was standing next to a fella, probably in his fifties, who was a lot taller than me (I'm just over 6 ft.) and built like a brick outhouse.
    He was crying like a baby and the tears were pouring down his cheeks in torrents.
    I still don't understand to this day what that was about. Can anybody enlighten me?
    The nearest thing that I could compare it to is the screaming, fainting and mass adulation of young girls at Beatles concerts.
    I suspect it probably had something to do with the war.

    People selling tat on street corners and car parks in Windsor. Are you expecting this to trickle down?
    And, of course, I wouldn't expect any analysis from the Express on the motives of people travelling to the UK. What proportion of those actually come to the UK for the royal wedding?

    A Ram for All Seasons got a reaction from 1of4 in Brexit or Eurin?   
    I do see the contradiction between having a one size fits all currency for the Eurozone and 19 different tax regimes and fiscal policies in the Eurozone countries, but that’s not the issue. Britain still has the Pound.
    My objection to a hard Brexit is that it will destroy living standards and wreck what is still left of British manufacturing industry which, like it or not, depends on complex international just-in-time supply chains. Airbus UK has already lost its high-tech European satellite work, and Trump is busy imposing punitive tariffs on what’s left of the British steel industry. What’s going to happen when the EU starts imposing tariffs?
    People will be reduced to cutting each other’s hair, making each other’s beds and grilling each other burgers in order to make a living. Unless, of course, you work in a bank.
    Rees-Mogg and his chums want to turn Britain into a cheap, ethnically homogeneous, low-wage, low-tax sweatshop where the native workers doff their caps and tug their forelocks to their betters, don’t expect to be pampered with things like affordable housing, schools, hospitals and old people’s homes, and meekly allow themselves to be shafted by private companies owned by their rich pals. All they are interested in is undercutting, and it won’t work.
    Do you really want to go along with that?

    You should have seen the way Npower tried to rip off my 90 year old mother and read some of the BS they came out with in the correspondence when the matter was referred to the ombudsman. This is Tory-sponsored predatory capitalism of the worst order. Utterly disgusting.

    The triumph of these parasites is that they have managed to get people to equate their very existence with the essence of Britishness.
    I am proud to be British but these leeches can **** off.

    Yes this may be the endgame.
    Yes remaining in the EU may not stop or change the result of the same endgame.
    But by going it alone, as a small country we leave our self vulnerable to more powerful trading nation and the ensuing damage this could do to our economy, thus accelerating the arrival of said endgame

    On a serious note, a mate of mine died from it three weeks ago aged 66. The last few months were not good.
