by waveneyblue at 13:59 11 Jul 2020
Are putting up a hell of a fight.
Since the restart P6 W0 D0 L6 F1 A14 pts 0 .... that's Ipswich 94/95 esq although we managed to lose 8 on the trot scoring 1 goal and conceding 27....
|Happy Noj relegation day everyone!|

Especially you, Ulla...
Hope I'm not being too premature, I mean there's still 20-odd minutes for them to score 4 goals.
Maybe this could be a yearly celebration?
|Ed Davey offers to work with Labour if elected Lib Dem leader|
by tractordownsouth at 11:58 11 Jul 2020
I didn't have strong views on their leadership contest before, but this is a sensible statement when you contrast it with Layla Moran talking about targeting the Labour vote.
When you consider that 18 of the top 20 Lib Dem targets are Tory held, then Layla Moran's pitch of being untainted by the coalition, whilst a good point, is unlikely to be hold much traction in the areas they need to win. The Lib Dems need to focus on liberal economic Tories who are against the idea of Johnson/Cummings, if they are to maintain electoral relvenace.
Davey also makes the point that in Tory areas, the idea of a Starmer-led govt is likely to be more appealing than a Corbyn administration was. I don't think a full-scale pact would work, as the parties have different voter bases, but if they could each stand aside in 2 or 3 seats to defeat high profile Tories in key marginals where the vote was split last time, then that would be beneficial.
Tactical voting worked for the right in 2019, so the centre-left should follow suit.

on a 3 year deal with an option.
if it happens this could be the start of something big.

Face masks in shops, ok then if we must, but how about making it official rather than some passing off the cuff comment. More worryingly is “return to the office” What if I can’t socially distance, do I then wear a face mask? One would assume “work from home if you can” is now defunct?
Getting this genie back into the bottle is harder than he thought
His mind seems to be like his hair style, sort of all over the place.
Or (as I hope) I’ve interpreted this whole completely wrong?
|Claire Fox on BBC's Any !uestions tonight|
by tractordownsouth at 23:00 10 Jul 2020
Not sure she should be given a platform on a public service broadcaster. She's a pretty clear extremist - has previously been part of organisations which voiced support for the IRA and denied the Bosnian genocide, and has refused to apologise for both.
When she was an MEP, it would have been fine as I don't think elected officials should be barred from these sort of things. I'm still not convinced we should ban people based on their views (unless they're inciting hatred/telling lies) but if extremists are to be given platforms then surely this should be made clear to the audience, at the very least? I haven't tuned in, but from the BBC Politics tweet, there's no mention of her previous exploits in the description of her

Saw him playing for Huddersfield tonight (they lost 2-0 at home to Luton) and wondered just why Chelsea haven't released him yet? He's pants. I remember having a bet with Luke when he reckoned old Trev'd be a Prem regular in two years. Easiest fifty quid I've ever made....
