  1. Today
  2. June 6th - Villa home behind closed doors. (No logic to that!)
  3. Yesterday
  4. If he doesn’t turn the Labour Party round I dread to think what will become of Labour as credible power in this country Mike without wishing to appear rude I hope you’re concerns about him prove to be unfounded, or we shall live the rest of our lives in the shadow of a Tory government, now how depressing is that thought.
  5. My son made 6 years old today. I’m so thankful for a healthy and happy son, I love him. Thankful for the wife and daughter too, but today is his day. Lots of Pokémon gifts and a razor scooter, even got some cupcakes delivered in the lockdown. Simple day but joy filled. Very grateful.
  6. When I was growing up we lived about four miles from Wisley airfield which was used as a Vickers test flight center, we used to have planes overhead all the time; some of them sounded like they were going to land in the garden.
  7. He still doesn't convince me at all; body language/tone just not statesmanlike (though who in the World is just now I know). Saying the right words but sounds like he's reading a script, which he obviously is; the trick when reading a script is to sound like you're not and he doesn't do that for me. Prove me wrong Mr Starmer.
  8. I’m so glad I was chosen. They really are a horrible club - we may never have their trophies but at least we’ll never have their shame. The few fans of other clubs that wouldn't have minded them having the league given to them if the season can’t conclude will be changing their minds pretty quickly I reckon.
  9. Stan Collymore... "I don't know of any Liverpool fan of any standing that won't be anything other than disgusted at the club for furloughing staff. It's just plain wrong. "Fellow football fans, furlough is for small business staff to keep those small businesses from going bump! "Every Premier League owner has serious cash, and makes money from skyrocketing values of clubs, so what aren't you getting about your owners dipping into their pocket?" Employee.. "The club call their staff their family - I'm not feeling like a family member. "Why is a club that turns over [millions of pounds] using a government scheme for its staff, when other businesses are more in need of it? "I feel disappointed and I'm feeling that this government scheme could be used by businesses in trouble." The member of stuff added that they were "disappointed, especially after Everton said they were not doing it".
  10. Meanwhile a certain other club have furloughed their non-playing staff, but will pay the other 20% of the wages not covered by the government. Same city, two very different clubs.
  11. As I said I don't know much about him just going on his demeanour really, hope I'm wrong and you're right.
  12. Strange I don’t see him as weak, I see a well rounded and grounded person, who is intelligent enough to know the pens mightier than the sword, I think Boris is in for a hard time by someone who is more switched on than Corbyn was.
  13. He is not left of left and knows how to engage with people, he will be a breath of fresh air after Corbyn, not that I disliked Corbyn he just struggled to be engaging with people which did him no favours and the right wing press crucified him because of it, even though he had some good policies. Starmer was a leading lawyer for human rights and when he talks you want to listen, he won’t be a push over when it comes to PMs question time Boris has now got a very intelligent adversary who’s going to bring him to task and turn the tide for Labour.
  14. He won’t last long if you ask me.
  15. I don't know much about him to be honest, comes across a bit weak though.
  16. He’s closer to being blue than red.
  17. Things could fall into his lap when it comes to the primaries, stay safe Mark.
  18. For the non English help us out how is stamer different From Corbin and what are his pros and cons
  19. 1. He’s been horrible. But it’s all partisan, liberals think he’s been bad, conservatives approve of anything he does and tow the party line regardless. 2. This is a strange one. The people that are dying the stereotypically conservatives (aka old people). I don’t think he’s shifted opinion on him with the job he’s done but if it gets really bad all those “it’s a hoax it will blow over next week” sound clips will be playing constantly come election time. but another wrinkle is the election. My state Ohio canceled our primary and is doing only mail in ballots. This greatly favors conservatives As poor folks aren’t paying postage and going online to Print off a ballot (need access to internet, need printer, need post stamps). All those work against the poor and middle class especially in the depression we are about to be in. If the general election is the same way I think he will win no problem.
  20. I think being slow to react and not learning from those that are doing better and those that aren’t, is beyond contemptible it’s the same virus no matter what country you live in and will be devastating for those countries that don’t take the tough decisions faster. Trump for me acts like he’s invincible because he’s the leader of the most powerful country in the world, again he scorns advice from the medical professionals in your country, when they recommended people try to protect themselves and others by wearing a mask, he puts the advice down by saying he wouldn’t wear a mask and tells the country you don’t have to wear one, what idiot would say that in all honesty, yet his wife tweets the complete opposite. She must be thinking what a dick I’ve married. Stay safe Sibdane New Orleans has I believe the most positive case per head than anywhere else in the State’s and is a ticking time bomb.
  21. 1) Consensus is about 50/50 right now. 2) I think it depends on where we are come closer to election time. If we're not showing any progress but other countries are then I suspect that will sway a few of the middle-of-the-road Republicans. I do blame Trump for his slow response and treating it as a hoax when it came out, but then you also have some other folks who aren't taking this pandemic seriously. My state just now went into "shelter-in-place" mode, and it's already been three months. Should've happened when we got the first few cases. We're right in the middle of travel hotspots (Florida & New Orleans).
  22. I’m pleased Starmer got elected he’s definitely got a big job on his hands to unite the Labour Party, but I think he will be a lot more palatable to voters than Corbyn was. The rebuild is on and the future doesn’t look so bad, I’ve got high hopes for him and wish him well.

  24. Me too, on self reflection, so don’t worry. I won’t name names because that’s not the objective, I just need a brain dump
  25. After reading some threads and posts, I’ve become infuriated by the sheer lack of perspective of some, on both sides of the topic and I need to get it off Mum chest. Unfortunately my replacement phone is mental and infuriating even for short posts, so when i get time I’m getting on the computer to rant. Then I’ll be happy and positive
