Pretty engrossing, but depressing, documentary series on the aftermath of the Iraq War, talking to civilians, soldiers and reporters. We all know it, but just confirms what an almighty clusterf@ck the whole situation was.
With the lack of any organised sports, and sports centres etc still closed down, how are the fine people of TWTD keeping themselves in shape?
I'm starting to push myself a bit more on the bike now, done just under 60km in the last 4 days on 3 rides. Its on a hybrid bike rather than a road bike, so takes a bit more effort to clock up the distance! I'm by no means a fitness freak, played a bit of 6 a side footy and walked to work, but badly needed to stop myself going full slob.
On this note, has anyone heard anything about when sports centres might open for football, badminton etc?
I don't watch much Premier league football outside of MOTD (ie highlights only), but on the rare occasions I do, such as the cup semi on now, I just find it a bit dull. It is all a bit too cagey and teams are too good at defending, so not much goal mouth action at all.
You can see that the technical ability on display is very good, but not nearly enough of it results in exciting football.

2) has there been any actual attacks on war memorials? I'm aware of attacks on Churchill and slaver/racist statues but not war memorials. Feels to me like there is some kind of move to paint BLM as disrespectful to our war dead.
We are governed by some of the scummiest people imaginable.
had to listen back a few times to check Dominic Raab really said this
