    Is there any evidence of this 'leaving for dead' or should this repeated claim be removed?

    They have been very very stupid, irresponsible and reckless. They have been punished according to law and again by the club
    they entered a guilty plea.
    for me it’s end of story .. I might have felt differently if a bystander had been hurt or killed (but then the punishments would have been rightfully different )
    why allow rehabilitation under someone else’s auspices? Assuming they are contrite it has to be right they as “our”players “we” give them the chance to validate their contrition and do penance ( crikey that sounds a bit churchy - but there’s solid logic in it) 
    A repeat offence would change my mind, but as of where we are now then as far as I am concerned it’s “right lads, get your heads down, graft, do your penance, learn, give back and come back a better person and player.

    That could be regarded in some circles as 'observational metaphor'
    The Commonwealth quote relating to how he thought the Queen loved her '...crowds of pickaninnies...with watermelon smiles' is a little harder to contextualise in a racism-free form.

    There sure is. Like Corbyn forever been linked to anti-Semitism, whereas Johnson has been openly racist without censure. Or Corbyn's manifesto needing a money tree when Johnson's Queen's speech will cost the same. Or Corbyn been an IRA supporter as he advocated talking to them, like what actually happened to bring peace. Or Corbyn criticised for not having an extreme position on Brexit whereas Johnson continually lies and changes his position. Or how Corbyn's weak leadership is always brought up, whilst Tories keep changing leaders and losing MPs. Etc etc.

    Aren’t we lucky to have so many slick legal experts, experienced medical practitioners, alcohol weights and measures aficionados, insurance accident investigators, assorted Marple, Poirot and Sherlock Holmes types plus scrap metal merchants on this thread!

    went to Fez on an inaugural flight, taxiing through water canons on landing felt very special, sent vid to my daughter who started panicking that we were on fire.  Fez is a lot smaller and less touristy than Marrakech.  Built on hillsides it has a lot more walking.  the souk is basically 2 parallel streets and you get less hassle.  We had a hotel on the hillside looking down into the town, the view is very impressive.  I prefer Fez but it is more subtle than Marrakech and I guess not to everyone's taste. Great day trips into an area that is not easily accessible normally.  When you closer I have a couple of restaurants to consider

    I have been driven in Jordan but never done it myself. 
    Lots of friends that have lived there say it is OK by no means as hectic as other countries in the region.

    Keogh probably told them to jog on and he will cover for them, like he did so many times in defence. Turns out he played one of his hospital balls to the striker again.

    So, much of the speculation regarding other charges is BS.
    However the failure to stop at the scene is quite an aggregating factor.
    Not as awful as I'd feared, but, then, I'd feared a number of things may also have been in evidence which they were not.

    Haha - joking aside, another thing that cheers me up is when I see the posters in this thread who I largely disagree with being generally nice people in ther other threads. Particularly where another member has shared a personal difficulty, or a loss.
    Nice to be reminded that people are generally alright when it comes down to personal interactions- even (grits teeth) Tories 😂

    The Guardian was highly critical of Corbyn until last General Election. When Labour did well in Guardian-reading areas, they seemed to soften a lot.
    I wish politics was more about policies than personalities of leaders.

    Its a tough one.
    I am fairly sure even average or slightly above average earners wont attract inheritance tax. Isn't the amount for a couple going to be close on a million pounds soon?
    For most people the majority of any inheritance to pass down is going to be the home they live in, provided they are lucky enough to escape ill health in later life which requires them to live in a care home etc.
    The average home price is circa 250k? So there is plenty of buffer zone there for those that have earned that bit more and saved that bit more.
