Re: The Politics Thread

Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma! Tu pure, oh Principessa Nella tua fredda stanza Guardi le stelle che tremano D'amore e di speranza Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me Il nome mio nessun saprà No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dirò Quando la luce splenderà Ed il mio bacio scioglierà Il silenzio che ti fa mia (ll n...

Re: This weeks RIP's........

Very sad. Saw him at an Xmas show last year and whilst he didn't look well then, he soldiered on and gave a great performance and a fantastic show, testament of the man.

Pleased with this. They aren't sheikhs but hopefully won't be Ken on the other extreme and will be a safe pair of hands.

Re: Tonight's Football

Not a strong day for the ladies. One 13-0 and another game paused because it rained... I wish it had been bigger when I was younger as I reckon I'd have got into it but all I find interesting now is the Wanderers or the ludicrous levels at the top of the men's game. Good luck to them though. Got a ...

Those of you who didn't watch The Virtues need to go back and watch it. Superb, gripping television. One of the best things I've ever watched.
I'm sure it's cracking like most of Meadows's work but there's only so much miserable kitchen sink drama you can watch. :|

Re: Today I'm neither Angry nor Happy about....

I don't agree with the decision, but I suspect it is to catch the baby boomer generation who for the most part are financially well-off. Means testing it is probably fairer in the long run. I've also noticed most of the criticism is by the children of the people affected who, again, are middle-class...

Absolute shambles. A fraud in s lucky waistcoat is still a fraud. John Stones woeful tonight. Cannot make such basic errors and hide behind "doing the right thing". Nonsense. Unnecessarily harsh, but hopefully Stones and Walker will be phased out. That said, the youngsters coming through are all at...

Loved Enid Blyton as a kid. Couple of FF SS but mainly the collections of short stories (13 o'clock etc).

Yeah, certain cultural bits haven't aged well but they were really creative and evocative works.

Re: Questions to which I can't find answers:

And why does rain stop play in cricket? It doesn't in football, rugby, swimming, polo, horse racing or judo! (although it does in tennis, but that's so Cliff Richard can sing). I think maybe five days compared to ninety minutes might be one factor Spots... :D Ah! (you can tell I don't watch cricket...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

There really is going to be nothing left of Bolton Wanderers . What a foolish game football's become, all about greed and selfishness. Without a solid, decent team we're going nowhere at two-hundred miles an hour. Unless the game changes drastically it'll self-destruct completely. The top end milli...

At least HBO can get to producing quality shows again, like Chernobyl that's airing at the moment.
