  1. Never thought I'd hear that said, but fair play to the lad, he's upped his game a lot recently.
  2. Not sure I'd change too much. I'm a great believer in that you are the sum of your experiences and I like to think that I'm a fairly decent chap now so changing anything might lead to unforeseen consequences. For the geeks out there (myself included!) - Star Trek, the Next Generation did an episode on this that I found fascinating. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapestry_(Star_Trek:_The_Next_Generation)
  3. That's why I don't read newspapers. It's 2019, why do I want to read yesterdays news with a political slant on it ? 🤷‍♂️
  4. Careful, last time I suggested Mr Boot was slightly right of Maggie I got a 24 hour holiday. See you in a few days !!! 🙋‍♂️ (although that could be me 😂)
  5. How do you get "So the EU is becoming militarised and will have its own army. Thanks for confirming this. " from an article that clearly states "There are no formal plans in place for an EU army" The mind boggles. As for the Euro, no - the UK and Denmark have opted out of the Euro and would not be obliged to join (despite all the rubbish written on the Internet about the Lisbon treaty and so on) https://fullfact.org/europe/viral-list-about-lisbon-treaty-wrong/ Of course, all bets are off if we leave and then decide to rejoin later on.
  6. None of the parties appeal to me, do I not bother voting or go and spoil the paper by writing "none of the above" ? Depends if it's raining on the 12th or not I guess 🤔 Having said that, I can't see Sheffield Heeley's 14000 labour majority getting overturned any time soon so I guess it's a moot point. Democracy eh ?
  7. Used to it these days, it's the old saying - If you want to know what's happening at Wednesday, ask a Blade. Was on holiday a couple of weeks ago in Lanzarote with about a dozen United fans and watched United demolish Burnley 3-0 (well worthy winners). Talking point? Wednesday losing 2-1 to Blackburn. The mind boggles.
  8. Car Bot makes me chuckle. Should I report myself now for a holiday? 😂
  9. Thought the Blades thoroughly deserved the win. Arsenal, whilst looking lively in midfield, were shut down by a very solid defence. As for the season I can't see them getting relegated, just hope we can join them next season
  10. Exactly, they're not trying to stop us shooting ourselves in the foot - they're just trying to make sure we've got a steel toe-cap boot or something to minimise the damage.
  11. It's statements like this that makes me think we should never have a referendum ever again
  12. Don't think he's the reincarnation, I think Boris is the one that Cromwell would be referring to.
  13. I'm sure he'll come up with a Daily Mail source soon or possibly a Daily Express one, might be behind the warning for the worst winter in history though. I've got October the 15th on the work (well, now ex-work 😐) sweepstake on the Express warning, 50 quid in it
  14. 'The first duty of a member of Parliament is to do what he thinks in his faithful and disinterested judgement is right and necessary for the honour and safety of Great Britain. His second duty is to his constituents, of whom he is the representative but not the delegate. Burke's famous declaration on this subject is well known. It is only in the third place that his duty to party organization or programme takes rank. All these three loyalties should be observed, but there in no doubt of the order in which they stand under any healthy manifestation of democracy.' - Winston Churchill Well done to the MPs that followed Winstons words in the face of deselection. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Member_of_Parliament_(United_Kingdom)#Responsibilities
  15. Good luck with that, been asking that question for over 3 years without getting anything remotely convincing as an answer.
