Anyone listen to 'The News Quiz' this evening?
at 21:14 24 Feb 2017

Last place I thought I would hear a pre-derby wind-up - Charlie Higson, yeah once of our much loved 'The Fast Show' but also once of the UEA and Nodge based band The Higsons read out his cutting at the end:

Sign seen above the toilet on Norwich to London train 'Please do not flush whilst the train is in a station - this notice excludes Ipswich'.

We need to put five past them without reply.

Protecting Our Way of Life - A Point of View
at 21:10 10 Feb 2017

This week's Radio Four non-God slot from John Gray covers some of the ground we have been thrashing over this last week or so - the rise of the far-right, apparent liberal ineffectuality, plus some wider issues - worth a listen:

Here's something everyone from England can support Scotland on: poppy fine
at 21:30 9 Feb 2017

Whilst I can see FIFA's technical point I would have thought they could have found a way to disregard any political or religious element to wearing poppies on football shirts, not sure if the appeal will be successful:

Are there really parallels between the USA now and Germany in the 1930s?

Thoughtfull little piece from Al Jazeera turning over the questions regarding America's political direction of travel, and thankfully free of the 'Godwin's Law' misnomer:

Anyone else picked up on the hate shown by Dortmund towards RB Leipzig?
at 15:23 7 Feb 2017

Article on BBC's football page about Germany's most hated club, and it comes down to money (or envy?) as Red Bull bend the rules around club ownership to become a de facto sole owner (the Bundesliga is designed to prevent clubs having one rich owner but if you can find sixteen stooges you can still be the single rich owner, however only Red Bull have done this - allegedly).

Admirable ethics, and defence of ethics by the Germans, but does it justify Leipzig supporters being pelted with stones and bottles? Any TWTDers living in Germany care to comment on this blemish on the reputation we have received of cheap, cheerful fist class football with no problems getting a drink pitchside and decent food with somewhere decent to sit and eat it to boot?

Actually a very sad story and nothing to do with the jailer of the free world. I did not realise that the use of our NHS and Social Services was being siphoned off by other nations with inadequate welfare to the extent that offspring could avoid US nursing home fees like this.

Instead of the usual two fighters screaming down the Glen, about half an hour ago a group of four were on the go. Anyone else had military aircraft activity overhead? Guess I should have posted this half an hour ago but I was too busy making up inane replies to some of the bollox on here

I'm not suggesting that our Prime Minister should also cancel her visit but Trrump has been softened up a bit, she can go in with both barrels blazing. And come storming out of the meeting early if necessary.

Were Darmstadt right to cancel this guy's contract?
at 12:47 26 Jan 2017

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38750949

On balance I guess they were, mainly due to the possibility of the supporters doing more than denouncing him with a banner and the pressure that the state would have put them under. But if the club endorsed him as having impeccable behaviour have they been less than supportive of the player?
