Boris Johnson here demonstrating how much of a toss he gives about anyone else
at 13:52 9 Dec 2019

Anyone who votes for him votes thinking he'll keep his promises should have been paying more attention. And that goes for the ERG zealots as much as the general public.

1991-92 Promotion season on youtube
at 12:18 5 Dec 2019

As I was looking for the Luton shootout I came across this neatly curated list. Every game of 91-92 is here:



ITFCFife is the person to thank for uplaoding most of them although has he changed his username?

Ah: it just plays in order. Delete the space in the URL for the whole list.

Books of the year
at 14:27 3 Dec 2019

We haven't had a book thread for a while so for a change of mood on the book what are the best books anyone has read this year? It doesn't matter when published.

- Chernobyl, Serhii Plokhy. An excellent, readable account of the disaster. Gripping but without the over the top dramatisation of the TV series.



https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/309/309197/chernobyl/9780141988351.html

- Arnhem, Anony Beevor. Not exactly a revisionist account as it has long been clear the battle wasn't heroic failure but a clusterfuk of personal vanity and exceptionally optimistic planning. Montgomery and Browning failed their men before the operation was even launched. And yet, the individual bravery shown comes across in the minutiae of battle which Beevor's best books specialise in.

Too many big words in for Priti Patel obviously.


Corbyn can shut the fk up too, with his mono-dimensional view on foreign policy being to blame.
