Q: I used to vote Tory, but now I back the Brexit party, and I want to see Nigel Farage in Number 10. Can you guarantee we will leave the EU by 31 October?
How do you deal with this level of lunacy?

or are some of these figures based on something that is highly likely to happen, and the other set based on stuff that is never going to happen?
Sure the US men's team are promised $400k each for winning the world cup. That may as well be $4,000,000 as it isn't going to happen. The US women's team are earning $110,00 each if they win the world cup, something which is entirely probable.
Just seems like apples are being compared to oranges here.
The Women's US team qualifying for a WC is also a given, compared to the Men's side struggling to qualify.
The only areas where I can see disparity is in the flat performance fees, and I think the US women's team have a right to be aggrieved here seeing as Women's football generates the same, and often even more, in revenue than the men's game for the USSF and is certainly a better advert for the game in the US currently than the woeful men's team.

... I'd been distracted from what a vapid, useless, hollow, disingenuous, lying, inept, sniveling, craven, arselicking, incompetent, unthinking, muppet of a scumbag Hunt was.
So thanks to him for reminding me during the hustings today.

Johnson say Trump is talking sense on Iran.
Big red flag this one. Haven't we all missed the country being dragged into pointless wars by the Americans?

Do you ever feel discriminated against in terms of your work wardrobe choices? Is this the one area in the workplace where women have it so much netter than men? Do you feel pressure to conform to a certain work 'look' that negatively impacts your health and mental wellbeing over the summer months?
Are you still expected to wear the full suit while you other colleague get to wear what is pretty much just beach wear? Do you loathe that trickle of sweat running down you back or balls as you stand on the train platform, waiting for a train that never seems to ever arrive?
Do you yearn to flounce to the photocopier in a fruity little summer dress, rock up to meetings smelling of gardenias while your vest top keeps your armpits cool??
It was thirty degrees here at 7:30 this morning, and I hate everyone and everything. So, urbanites of TWTD, do you have any types for the stylish urban dweller who wants to stay cool on the commute? At this rate I'm going to have to bring a change of clothes to work.

Using the FIFA world rankings, who do you think is the highest ranked team Town could beat?
I'm going with 20 - Iran.
Saying that, I don't think we would beat any of the teams in 21st to 27th place though.
