    I thought the retaken penalty was the correct decision and didn't think there was encroachment on the retake? Could be wrong but I didn't notice at the time. 

    Otherwise agree with all that and really encouraged by Amadou in that position.

    There was - clear to see on replay


  2. Deserved all 3 points, but one will have to do. Dodgy VAR decision for retaken pen - there was encroachment on the retake too but surprise surprise that was allowed. Var has done us no favors whatsoever this season. Ref was a complete **** too.

    notwithstanding the officiating, we stood up well and Leno had to make 2 world class saves to keep them in it. Amadou did a good job in tettey role and Cantwell is getting better by the week.

    We seem to have our mojo back at last. Bring on Wednesday

    Climate change debate on CH 4.....BJ running scared again. 

    I'm surprised to see the media keep making headlines out of it. At this point, it's more of a story if he faces up to scrutiny. Him running away is par for the course now.

    He should be the MVP in my book

    Wrong. 

    There's only one man who deserves that accolade. 

    He happens to be a Redskin, but notwithstanding that, his contribution to the team has been far greater than anybody else this season and he's been at the heart of the action every single game. More positive yards than any other Redskin by a country mile.

    I speak of course, about the best damn Punter in the league, Tress Way.

    😉


  5. How do people keep supporting Boris?

    He's scared to debate the other leaders on the environment.

    He's scared to let Andrew Neil interview him.

    He's a pathetic shill who is not prepared to be scrutinised in any meaningful way as he gets embarassed every time he does because he's a pathological liar and a shyster.... yet still some people are too thick to see through his transparent shell.

    I hate this attitude.

    Neil is, in general, a very good interviewer and he's never gone easy on any politician as far as I can see. Some people are capable of putting their personal politics to one side and doing their job as professionals.

    I watched sturgeon last night, funnily enough she managed to complete sentences with ease as Neil wasn’t jumping down her throat every 4 words. Be interesting to see how Boris fares.

    Exposed him for what he is.

    Will do the same to BJ.

    Neil is a Tory - Boris will get a far easier ride than Corbyn.

    Thought Andrew Neil was actually very poor in the Corbyn interview - wouldn't let him get a sentence out so was difficult to really follow what Corbyn was saying as AN interrupted him every 2.7 seconds. Didn't watch the Sturgeon one - was he quite so passive aggressive with her?

    Labour antisemitism: Corbyn not fit for high office, says Ephraim Mirvis

    Ephraim Mirvis is somebody that conflates anti-Israeli aggression and anti-Zionist sentiments with anti-semitism. He is part of the problem, not the solution. It is perfectly legitimate to take an anti-Israel stance whilst holding tolerant, respectful views about Judaism and Jewish people. Mirvis is one of those who seeks to propagate the lie that if you don't agree with the Israeli apartheid and ethnic cleansing of Palestine then you are somehow anti-semitic. It's a view that is frequently put forward by various prominent Jewish figures, but it is simply not legitimate. Mirvis' issue with Corbyn is that Corbyn is anti-Israel.

    Mirvis' viewpoint is the same as saying "Oh what, you disagree with Pol Pot's slaughter of a generation? You must be a racist who hates Asian people then". It's a ludicrous and illegitimate stance, and is only given credence due to Western guilt over WW2. This attitude is highly criticised by various moderate Jewish figures such as Chomsky and Ilan Pappe - Are they anti-semitic too? Because according to Mirvis, they would be.

    Yougov 12-20 Nov

    Boris:  43%

    Labour: 29%

    Libdems 15%

    Brexit Party: 4%

    Snp: 4%

    Green:  3%

    Paid: 1%

    The leave voters are still in the majority ! Even if you add up all the remainers !

    Still failed to explain how your maths takes 43+4 and makes it to be over 50 Swindo. Why is it you are choosing to ignore posts on this and not enlighten us with your maths wizadry?

    The other point is that we do not know all that Trump said in that phone call because we only have an abridged version issued by the White House, with the full transcript - rather unusually - locked away in a secure vault. Perhaps Trump read out the closely-guarded recipe for Coca-Cola - that would explain the need for secrecy.

    I heard that it was nothing of the sort Purple. Much like the Russia report Boris is definitely hiding because he's a corrupt son of a ****   not sharing with the public. Trump is simply doing us all a favour by locking it away so we are not having to worry ourselves about it as there's definitely nothing incriminating in there. At all. Obviously. Why else would you hide something except to show you have nothing to hide?

    All you remainers can throw what you like at me, it's water off a ducks back, We will be out by the end of the year and Britain will be better for it !

    Nobody is "throwing" anything at you. You're being hung by your own petard.

    We cannot be out by the end of the year. Literally impossible. There is not enough sitting time for parliament to get through all the readings.... do you ever get anything right? Tick Tock, happy halloween.

    I'm still unsure as to why you haven't explained your mathematical formulae for converting 43+4 into over 50?

    wrong on all counts !

    So you didn’t post a picture of Ayanna Jordan and pretend she was ‘Pearl’?

    Please explain how your maths makes 43 +4 into more than 50%...? 

    Or just admit you’re full of ****

    We have learned that the last years of conservative rule have been an unmitigated, nasty and divisive disaster. Some of us are not willing to put the country through another 5 years of these disgusting people. No parties are very good, and the people need far better leaders than what we are being offered, but the current crop of tories are by far the worst group of politicians this country has ever had.

    Exactly this.

    You would think that people would have learned after the last election when Corbyn offered free tuition at university, then later admitted he didn't know how it would have afforded. Labour left the country with no money last time they were in. There seems to be a generation which refuses to look back on history and wilfully blindly follow people like Corbyn, which is a path to ruin

    After having proved that you expect people to believe you're dating an instagram model young enough to be your granddaughter and that you have a loose grasp of basic arithmetic - I would have thought you'd steer away from this kind of critique given your obvious failings in both areas. Seems self-awareness is lacking sorely too.

    So how do you make those sums ? Even being optimistic on your side it's 48/48 

    Boris:  43% + Brexit Party 4% = 47%

    Labour: 29% + Libdems 15% + Snp: 4% + Green:  3% + Plaid: 1% = 52%

    How is that even remotely challenging?
