Bit late to the party with this
at 13:12 17 Sep 2019

That really is a pitiful viewpoint to despise a well run provincial club currently on the up - and doing it without financial doping or cheating the system. Norwich are showing Town up simply by doing and being what this club used to represent. I think anyone with some functioning brain cells and a sense of perspective wishes them well - even as someone said earlier their leaky defence might well see them relegated.

Chuka's rationale for leaving T.I.G (gers)
at 10:59 17 Sep 2019

You misunderstand our democracy. Very few MPs win a majority of the votes in their constituencies - they are just first past the post. They are elected to represent their constituents in a sovereign parliament - most of who almost certainly did not vote for them Therefore its perfectly reasonable for Chukka, the fragrant Heidi Allen and the likes to keep a firm grip on their seats - they represent their constituency - the party is almost irrelevant - and in their cases utterly irrelevant.

Because the PM is not supposed to lie to the queen to satisfy a small minority of extremists in his own party. Basically its treason.

IF/when the case is won Johnson has to resign and a government of national unity will be formed to run the country in the best interests of its citizens. Hence no need for the early election that Tory bluster was seeking in an act of desperation last week.

Not quite that bleak. It was apparently the first time a promoted club had beaten the arab state sponsored side in 25 attempts. They have also elected to take on the Prem with more or less the team that got them promoted costing about the same as one of the opposition's kneecaps....which is admirable, but possibly a relegation strategy. They also had 8 first team players out. All in all quite good really. If you want to talk them down simply remember when we beat Man U 3-2 at home. The away score was 9-0.... which could still happen for those leaky canaries.

This is a journeyman striker who has had one year in the fourth division and a few games in the dizzy heights of the third division. He's not doing too bad for a 'free' as someone on here says. Not everyone can be Pukki.

IF you water and feed regulary you can get a poor crop of small potatoes from these things. Same could be said for tomatoes and courgettes and even melons. Depends on vareity and weather. Do you really have a jetty in your garden? Most have them in a river.

You should at least consider being against them. Crossing the road in London or Cambridge is already fraught with danger due to arrogant cyclists. Electric cars can be a bit of a surprise to pedestrians and those cyclists. The silent menace of electric cars is actually something that will have to be addressed if they ever become anything other than a waitrose shopper's self-indulgence.

5-3 full time and 5-1 by half time doesn't quite cut it for you then?

Bearing in mind Kosovo look quite good and their superstar player is Celina, it sort of proves that you don't actually have to be that good to play international football to quite a high standard. Even Bontcho Guenchev got to play in a world cup semi.

He plays for Chelsea and he's young. 2 games and straight into the England team is the current, fashionable mantra. Why not quietly enjoy that there is the core of a decent team developing? Makes a change to see players apparently enjoying playing for their country with a bit of pride.

You make my point for me - electric cars are a totally impractical (and costly) middle class indulgence for pseudo eco warriors to feel good about themselves. Granted living in London makes them slightly less daft, but the need for a proper car do do any lengthy journies - or perish the thought, two small trips in one day makes them a total irrelevance at present.

You can't escape the reality that if the UK went totally green and thrilled that Swedish school girl it wouldn't make an iota of difference. Perhaps people in the real world, like the Chinese for example have a better handle on this than middle class, middle england. Any cars over 8 years old are scrapped there. No tax benefits and no 'free' electricity. Just a practical solution in an area where change actually makes a difference.

Not much of a classic car market in China I suppose.

erm no - just like any electric car you cant leave your indulgence zone when driving because its range is so limited. And you have to refuel it every day at the planet's expense. Google where your hampstead electricity comes from as well - my guess is wood chips from North Carolina virgin forests currently classified as green burnt at the power station just up the road - but I may be wrong on that. Enjoy.

Advice is about 40 years old - but when my hall of residence place in Hiatt Baker evaporated I went to the student union and used their facility to get a room in a flat in clifton within 30 mins. I suspect they are a bit more high tech now and have the internet in the west country.

The second election attempt just failed again
at 10:31 10 Sep 2019

Not all - the opposition are effectively already in power thanks to Tory extremist incompetence. I doubt they will get the majority they have now in a general election, nor be so united. IF Johnson does something completely barmy come mid october he can be unseated and replaced by a government of national unity - which represents 58% of the voters. It's called democracy

When you consider she gave her two clueless advisers an honour and knighted a useless former housing minister who ignored an enquiry into the dangers of inflammable cladding on high rise buildings for poor people (with predictable and unfortunate consequences) you could say both are backhanded compliments.

Sort of depends on the EU's response to our current chaos. IF they OK another extension it may well depend on revoking article 50 anyway - and come back to use when you actually have a plan.

Current Brexit polling
at 10:21 10 Sep 2019

None of these polls have any basis in reality because nobody is defining what 'leave' means. Given the good Friday agreement and the willful lack of government in Northern Ireland it is not entirely clear how leaving the EU, as put to the great unwashed is at all possible. So until somebody comes up with a plan for leaving the EU that can be put back to the great unwashed as 'reality v remain - your choice' then it's impossible to say. Although if the government had been forced to publish its own assessment of the chaos leaving without a deal (and ignoring the Irish and the fact that we haven't left, not really) it might have made a few people open their eyes.
