  1. Funny, I was wondering how a thread about a relatively minor Ex Wednesday player retiring had become derailed but then I looked back and saw your name pop up and it all made sense..
  2. Cant see another thread about this one. Anybody else watching? I've really enjoyed the series so far but I thought last night's episode (Tue 11th of June) was poor - it felt like a bit of a stretch and their were plot holes you could sink a battleship in. Anyone else?
  3. Even more couldn't give a rats ass..
  4. Imagine how obsessed you have to be about a club to pour over the minutia of their financial dealings like that! I cant imagine ever - and I mean EVER being that interested in the dark side enough to want to spend my precious time on their inner workings.
  5. Course they don't care - they're too busy fabricating a rivalry with Man United to be bothered about their local rivals..
  6. No I don't think anywhere did I make that suggestion? What an odd reply...
  7. Perhaps there is no mention because the Soviets were not victims of the holocaust in the same way as the Jewish were and the behaviour of the Red Army was comparable to the worst excesses of the Wehrmacht... One of many examples
  8. Well, actually.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_football_clubs_in_England_by_competitive_honours_won
  9. Good post Anna, as to your last point, probably not. There are too many who are happy to accept the status quo, sadly. We, as a region, are often our own worst enemies.
  10. One of the starkest figures for me to illustrate the gap is the diffirence between spending on transport. In Yorkshire and the Humber its £190 per head. In London, it's £1940! Source
  11. HS2 is designed to speed up the movement of goods and people into London, and effectively increase the size of the London commuter belt - any benefit to the outlying regions is purely a byproduct.
  12. Well yes, of course there will always be no shortage of affordable housing in deprived areas, that doesn't really equate to parity though and it's a pretty solitary crumb of comfort all things considered.
  13. It's not just Yorkshire that this affects. The whole of the North (Barring a few anomalous pockets of wealth) suffers the same (and I 'd also throw Scotland and Wales into the mix too). The north doesn't need to be split still further along county lines, we would need to be unified to make our voices heard in any meaningful way.
  14. I'll soon be 44 years old and for as long as I can remember, people have been discussing the North/South divide. I'm not talking about what people in London have on their chips vs what we have on ours, or the diffirence between bath or baarth, I'm talking about serious, real world issues that affect us all. As a Northerner, I'm expected to die younger, earn less and have fewer opportunities (both educational and vocational) than my Southern counterpart. I will have far less spent on my local infrastructure and services by central Government, and only this week, we've learned that when my lot is done, I can expect to receive less hospice care than those down south (Story here). Various Governments of various political leanings have promised to do something about the divide, but all have invariably failed as the gap grows wider by the day. So at what point do we, as Northerners, say enough is enough and do something about it? What would it take to make you take a stand?
