    OT - EU straw poll...

    Strange then, that the young, when asked want both a Labour government & for the UK to remain a member of the EU. The failures of neo-liberalism and selfishness of the boomers is clear to them. @Jools should listen to them, he might learn something (written more in hope than expectation)

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Let's assume above is true (and there are polls that show only a 1% lead) .. given our FPTP model, it's a perfect example of why, having had a referendum to get us into this whole divisive mess, we need a referendum to get us out of it. A confirmatory referendum so that the country can vote on this one issue given the facts as we now know them.

    Burnley Tickets

    My reply was to CDMullins and i didn't state or imply that it would continue moving forward. You said that the away season ticket would continue into next season in your subsequent post quoting CDM which i and i assume most other people were unaware of. No presumption on my part as until i hear it from Ben Kensell himself or a club statement on it i will take nothing for granted.

    And there's me not wanting (this) Labour Government but thinking it's better to remain. I'm thinking of my children and their future

    I read a book about Stockholm syndrome recently. I didn't like it at first, but by the end I loved it

    The would be holding the government's feet to the fire over Yellowhammer and the Grieve 'humble address' for one!

    I'll tell you this, YF -- If we were to remain in the EU and the Labour Party came into power, it would likely line my pockets. I neither want to remain in the EU nor do I want a Labour government --- That's a measure of how selfless I am. I'm thinking of my children and there's

    No Trump didn't close a 20% gap. The polls after the "interference" by James Comey regarding Hillary Clinton's e-mail "non-prosecution" - itself a violation of understood norms - showed Clinton leading by about 3 to 5%, and that translated into her approximate 3 million popular vote win. But like FPTP it's not the total votes that count in that election, it's the number of States that are won and their Electoral Collage votes. And Donald Trump won several states by razor thin margins.

    Burnley Tickets

    Isn’t that just guaranteed for this season - the Club haven’t yet decided if it’s rolled forward, as some are presuming to be the case?

    The point is less about this perogation, which as you point out @PurpleCanary really failed in it's purpose and as has also been pointed out only amounts to four sitting days, but any future perogation Johnson might try to use.

    Points Target for Next 4 Games

    We should be looking to get 12, really. Will certainly know where our squad is at after these 4 though.

    Burnley Tickets

    Sorry for the lack of clarity - there was 236 away STH’s last season, all of whom renewed with priority memberships for this season. As I understand it from several sources, as long as they renew their priority memberships each season going forward they’ll continue to have tickets automatically sent for each game. In comparison, the 10+ have the opportunity to buy for games they wish to attend the day before Premier members. Again, from what I’ve been told, this right isn’t actually guaranteed to continue beyond this season - unless, of course, someone wants to tell me otherwise.
  15. (A) Burnley (A) Crystal Palace (H) Aston Villa (A) Bournemouth AFC Easier opponents, but 3 games away from home. My feeling here we should be looking to get 5 points from this lot.

    OT - EU straw poll...

    I do come on here sometimes - don't see much that makes any sense though. But isn't that now the point - Brexit actually when you look at the detail / reality makes no sense but has become just a tribal yah boo sucks to anybody trying to be rational - beyond analysis ! Please enlighten me how 'No-Deal' will help you in your day to day business - worked through answers on an A4 page please (and no internet pastes).
  17. Is that seriously how you're seeing things pan out? I think you need to get out and about more -- Challenge yourself by speaking to people who wouldn't normally agree with you. I flagged up Cummings as being a spook a week or so ago. Not definite, but maybe not a completely insane idea either.
  18. There's a lot of scope for bias in things like the sampling methods and the input of previous results to come up with these numbers. Look at the variance in recent polls and the amount of election fraud that goes on, and the only sensible conclusion is that these polls aren't at all reliable. Trump & Corbyn both closed ~20% gaps in a matter of weeks and then all the analysts were falling over themselves to explain it away, instead of suspecting the obvious ie bias and electoral fraud.

    Well it's certainly a daft game if you put the second Reffers and Revokers on the same side

    I also expect it Len. It's very noticeable how the Anti Brexit lot are getting worried and pulling every trick in the book to kill it. None of this was meant to happen when Cameron granted the Referendum.

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Let me play your daft game. Remainy parties (excluding SNP) 25 + 19 + 4 = 48% No Dealy Parties 33 + 13 = 46% Kind of confirms the usual EUREF2 polls of 53 : 47 to Remain. Of course it all means nothing at present.

    Aye, all the desperate Remainiac antics backfiring on them as Boris gains in popularity -- If he loses the prorogue case, watch him rise even more
  25. At least Jack Ruby was able to muddy the waters. The secret of a good stitch up is for the accuser to maintain deniability. It happens in every run up to an election that I can remember. It's still early days Ricardo, but I expect a lot more of these incidents. They don't all involve Labour supporters though, what about the Luxembourg PM incident? The latter would never have been allowed to happen under usual circumstances, with an indoor press conference always being an option (eg for weather reasons).

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Vibes so far would seem to be that the government is in trouble - a few too many self induced errors and an og by the Manager one D.Cummings. Only 10 minutes into second half though - expect a few cameo appearances later. More goals expected.
