The man behind the Yemen war and far more hawkish on Iran.

Article which riled me this morning
at 09:19 18 Jun 2017

'Why does it take a tragedy like this for ministers to put lives above money?'

Real answer: Because it's only after something like this that the mass of the electorate change their own priority - low taxation at all costs. If people (other than those immediately affected) wanted safety to be a priority, they would have demanded and voted for policies which reflect that. Rather than kicking up a storm at even a slight adjustment of NI.

As a nation we have to make a choice between raising contributions* and lowering expectations.



* And not just "other people" (the rich, companies), all of us.

Not outstanding, but respectable for a GE.

Iran - do the pro-rapprochement with the West "moderate reformers" (in a very relative sense) hang on to power, or will the hardliner get in?

Interesting article which highlights
at 09:10 20 Apr 2017

the murkiness and complexity of the Syria/Iraq situation.

Particularly with reference to Saturday's bombing of an evacuation convoy, which left dozens of children dead, possibly being more down to kidnappers falling out over the loot than any political or sectarian motives (tho I doubt the bomber himself was told that bit).

Makes a lot more sense, given who was bombed, where and under what circumstances.

The Easter results have thrown up some oddities in the table. Lots of teams on the same points. With us still in 15th.

Happy f*****s we

McCarthy can call me whatever he likes if the team play like they did today.

Bl00dy good performance, couldn't tell which was supposed to be the team in the top two (even before the first goal).

The only mildly annoying thing is why haven't we been able to do that more often?

Looks like the bottom clubs are gently subsiding, while Newcastle and Huddersfield stagger in their push for the line.

Between this and the ridiculous Mourinho performance
at 12:22 3 Apr 2017

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/04/03/david-moyes-forced-apologise-thre

Is it about time the media stopped interviewing Prem managers if they're going to be rude b@atards and refuse to answer questions sensibly?

The reporter Mourinho had a go at was blethering later about it showing the manager's 'passion'. No it doesn't. Jose was simply being a c-unit to cover his own embarrassment at being outmaneuvered and outfought by Pulis and his men.
