The role of a CM
at 13:00 14 Dec 2019

Ahead of him number 10. Or if you play the 2 side by side, Flynn has to sit.

We’re quite lucky to have these players, I don’t think we’re using them right though. In a decent footballing team that builds from the back and is fairly possession- based they’d both shine.

It’s pretty obvious isn’t it. You play Downes in a 2, alongside someone who sits (Skuse) and then he can use his allround game and has licence to get forward (late runs into the box supporting the number 10.

You needs 4231 for that, but we don’t have the wingers.

Bloody Tories preventing people from having careers
at 11:30 14 Dec 2019

They’re not even effectively the same. Loans are but one way to pay tuition fees, bursaries are equally (if not more) important for many people.

People forget you’re also passing up somewhere about £40-45k a year for HE. It’s not just the fees, it’s living costs and lost income that would otherwise have been earner. Tory policies have made it especially difficult for working adults to re-enter education.

A cynic would say the Tories don’t want educated people, but I’m not sure that’s entirely fair.

There’s a correlation, but I’m not sure about causation. It’d be a bit patronising to people in their late 40s to say they haven’t experienced the world. Many people I know had there biggest life experiences and changes younger than that. It’s something far more complicated, and I suspect retreating into a smaller world view and fear of risk/change could also be playing a part somewhere.

It wouldn’t have made a difference, you’re quite right.

Campaign for a fairer voting system
at 10:51 14 Dec 2019

Nice idea, but last time we had a referendum on this it was as corrupt as the Brexit one. Too many powerful people with too much to lose (like hoped-for peerages, deregulation, etc).

Still worth fighting for, just don’t hold your breath.

In Hindsight:: Where Labour went wrong
at 10:47 14 Dec 2019

The Tory messaging that Labour would make everyone worse off and wreck the economy was obviously powerful, despite there not being any credible evidence for it (and thousands of such ads having to be pulled for being untruthful).

People will be hit a lot harder by Brexit, but if that’s what they want...

Should SNP get their way and go independent......

I’d like them to call it the Scottish Dragoon. It would anchor it with a historical, classical tone and is a corker of a word for the accent.

1. Try telling that to the Scotts. Seemingly ‘will of the people’ is exclusively for Brexiteers.

2. Brexit has only ever been a Tory issue. Tories pushes for a ref, got a ref, fecked up one of the campaigns, voted down their own proposals, 3 times. Rhetoric crashing against reality.

3. I don’t know how you voted, so best not comment.

Tried big boys go-karting once, made me feel sick 😂

Thoroughly recommend learning something new though. I learnt to scuba and although the scuba bit was great, the process of learning something completely different was more rewarding, which surprised me. It shows how you can stagnate, even doing stuff you like (as I was then, but even that doesn’t happen now!).

Maybe, but that can’t be determined from the election result. ‘Get Brexit Done’ was predictably and frustratingly powerful, but still only 46% voted for outright pro-Brexit parties. And in that, there will be pro-EU but tribal Tory voters. And we’ve no idea what the Labour split is.

It’s nonsense to link the two.

I wouldn’t want to predict the outcome of a 2nd ref though (GBD would work well due to our short attention spans), although that’s a different issue.

I’m glad we’ve taken back control and stopped the racists from getting in.
at 20:21 13 Dec 2019

Islamophobia is fairly widely accepted as it’s been promoted by the right wing media for years, including by our now PM. My old man bangs on about the ‘Muslims taking over’ thanks to that poisonous rag The Daily Mail. I don’t think he’s ever met one though; maybe in hospital, dunno.

So despite there being about 20 times the number of Muslims in the UK than Jews, it’ll be largely tolerated and most of the media certainly won’t make an issue of it. This Government’s rule depends on us hating certain groups and blaming them for our problems.

And we haven’t even mentioned the 3 million EU citizens that contribute to our society who have been made to feel like unwelcome lepers.

I’m not even convinced people know they’re doing it though - low level racism and xenophobia has been drip fed into society for so long that it’s been normalised. The antisemitism issue is but a mere pimple on a much bigger arse.

Is Glasgow about?
at 19:41 13 Dec 2019

Wish I had! Today has been miserable all round. Everyone tetchy, childish celebrations and lots of ‘winners’ with zero class, emboldened a-holes all over social media, losing candidates getting loads of vile abuse, losers getting morose, Labour dicks at each other’s throats. And on top of all of that trying to come to terms with 39,000 people voting for Francois.
