Brilliant by Labour. This is what we need and utterly sensible
at 18:31 9 Jul 2019

I've been critical of JC over Europe but a new vote, knowing what we know now, is the right decision. Took him a while but I'm happy he's got here.

I'm obviously in favour of Remain, which Labour now are, but a new vote just seems right.

"Jeremy Corbyn has challenged the next Tory leader to hold another referendum before taking Britain out of the EU, saying Labour will campaign for Remain."

Don't believe the fake news:

Bloke in the pub just told me he's a Sun reporter
at 17:13 18 Jun 2019

and reckons he's got word from a prostitute that Boris has had an affair with her in the last 6 weeks.

Might be a fantasist (he said "keep it to yourself" but why is he telling a stranger in a pub?)

My point to him was Boris has had affairs and it doesn't seem to bother anyone.

I didn't think Brexit could get any worse
at 16:28 4 Jun 2019

Looks like the NHS is one of the things Trump is after. Gawd help us.

"Mr Corbyn said he would oppose any post-Brexit trade deal with the US that allowed foreign companies "in to take over the NHS" - insisting he would defend a free health service "with every breath in his body".

But after holding talks with Mrs May, Mr Trump said no area could be excluded from future trade discussions, including the NHS.

"When you are dealing with trade, everything is on the table, so the NHS and anything else."

On Sunday, the US Ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, told the BBC "all things that are traded would be on the table" - including healthcare."

I do hate brands who try to be woke. But as with the Lush example, you can legitimately do good rather than exploiting good causes to 'look' good.

Album review thread. I've just listened to Arctic Monkeys last album again
at 17:52 24 May 2019

It's quirky and mildly interesting, and I quite like the concept, but overall it's a bit boring.

Shame. I do think Alex Turner's a genius, and I do love his lyrics, but he needs to up his game for the next album. Either he had a good idea that didn't quite work out... or he got lazy, believed his own hype, and knocked out some sh!te.

His work with Last Shadow Puppets has been better.

Anyway, let's have your album reviews. New or old, don't matter. Fill your boots.

I wonder if that "Leeds, Leeds are falling apart again" song
at 09:41 16 May 2019

starts to get in the players' heads and becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It must be hard, when things are going wrong, to lift yourself as thousands are singing that. It's impossible to close your ears, even if players generally block out the crowd.

I've always thought opposition fans should chant "MISS, MISS, MISS" when a player takes a penalty. Just to be different and get the word in the player's head. Arms waving behind the goal doesn't do anything (as we've seen) as your focus is on the goal itself.

Have there been any psychological studies on these sorts of things?
