  1. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/president-joe-biden-finally-bows-out-of-race-after-weeks-of-democratic-party-pressure/ar-BB1qn3vv?ocid=msedgntp&pc=LCTS&cvid=86a1e88770ac450db2a134e3bb52c028&ei=14
  2. My impression is there are more positives than negatives to take from the games so far. Chiefly the way the youngsters look very confident and composed playing the tight passing game under pressure.
  3. Disgusting racist comments from Lee Anderson. Who would have thought https://x.com/LeeAndersonMP_/status/1814189175387672848
  4. The Maitlis interview (and others) seriously pricked the pomposity of pipsqueak UK politicians desperate to ride on the coattails of Trump's grotesque politics. Pathetic and embarrassing.
  5. Indeed! Anyone who bothered to read Reform's fantasy manifesto would have written them off as a complete joke. 3x more expensive than Truss's budget that trashed the economy (2x more expensive than Corbyn's derided 2019 manifesto). Their promise to reduce NHS waiting lists to zero would have required more hospital appointments than actually physically possible (perhaps they believed the Tories had built the 40 "new" hospitals). 40,000 more police officers, Big rise in minimum pay, all while raising the tax threshold to £20,000, etc, etc. They would have bankrupted the country within days.
  6. Yawn! Conventionalbore: "Your lack of comment regarding...supports my suggestion that you are seemingly content with...". So, according to you, it safe to assume that a person's lack of comment on any particular issue can be taken as confirmation that they support it. That is probably the dumbest thing anyone has ever written on this site; beyond disingenuous, and utterly pathetic.
  7. When you bother to answer a single question I have posed I might consider responding to your rubbish. My record on support for Enlightenment values couldn't be stronger, so feel free to defend your abusive accusation that I am "content that there are five Islamist MPs in the HoC". In the meantime you carry on denying that 80% of what you post is nothing more than pathetic bleating about about abuse in order to distract from any attempt to respond to the questions and issues others raise. I must, however, apologise that this post has extended beyond the 2 sentence limit which you consider to be the mark of an essay and way beyond your ability to concentrate.
  8. So, Trump says he wasn't concerned when he was shot in the ear because he knew he had God on his side. I presume he means the same God who let a 20yr old loon take several shots at him in the first place. 🤣
  9. Conventional bore repeats yet again that he doesn't resort to personal abuse, apart from all the times he resorts to personal abuse 🤣
  10. So Farage has ****ed off to the USA in complete contradiction to his promise to fight tooth and nail for the people of Clacton, and in flagrant breach of his duties as an MP. Maitlis's simple questions expose him for the egotistical fraud that he is. It didn't take long for him to tire of being an insignificant backbench MP when offered a chance to muscle in on the vulgar glitz of Trump's grazed ear. https://x.com/TheNewsAgents/status/1813800868531323087

  12. Stormy: "Hey Don, have you seen my sanitary protection anywhere?"
  13. I get the feeling the Daily Record doesn't know too much about NCFC. They just described Danny Mills as a canary favourite "The Dane is closing in on Parkhead and a Canaries favourite wants to draw a line under Idah's stay at Carrow Road." https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/kasper-schmeichel-told-celtic-scare-33259751

  15. Pathetic! Is that curt enough for you?
  16. I see Boris Johnson is pulling in the crowds at the RNC. I wonder if Liz Truss is on the speakers' list. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/humiliating-photo-shows-boris-johnson-speaking-to-almost-empty-room-at-republican-convention/ar-BB1q4y9l?ocid=msedgntp&pc=LCTS&cvid=b2fc60dd64eb4a47817f330005594b2c&ei=10
  17. Kamara is a much greater prospect than Mumba. By his performances for Plymouth last season it appears we didn't lose out by selling him for a million. We sold him because he was clearly inferior to Stacey at right-back. It should surely take an offer of £5m upwards for us to consider selling Kamara while Rowe's future remains in the balance.
  18. We have nothing to offer the leaders of other countries who are determined to rule as dictators (except maybe bribes to keep them out of the hands of Russia, China etc). What the West primarily has to offer the people of other countries is a lived example of the conditions of people who exist freely in a democratic system, compared to the conditions of those who live under a repressive dictatorship. That has always been its chief selling point and will remain so.
  19. If that were the limits to his ambitions, then we would be well rid. But I don't believe for one minute that it is. There is a very real chance that Rowe will be sold and he would be the natural player to fill that role on the right wing. A starting place is clearly there for the taking for someone who has shown his potential. It's now down to him to make his case.
  20. If he ran for a third presidency you can guarantee it wouldn't be under the conditions of a democratic electoral process. He would do so only once he has fixed the electoral system to ensure his victory. In fact I think it not remotely implausible that he would declare (as a president with legal immunity guaranteed by a Supreme Court that he stuffed with his placemen) an election to be unconstitutional and avoid any risk of being defeated. After all, that is effectively what he attempted to achieve by denying the result of the last election and inciting an insurrection to overthrow the legitimate government.
