What is Sunak saying ? If you want to own your own home don't vote Conservative
at 19:03 10 Jun 2024

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-politics-69103457 at 18:03

'Towards the end their of the conversation, the prime minister was told how people in their 30s are having to live with their parents much later than they'd like to because they can't afford rent or a deposit to buy.

"Having your own home has got harder under a Conservative government, hasn't it?" Nick Robinson says.

"It has got harder, and I want to make sure that it's easier," Sunak replies.'

Considering he rattled the SNPs cages about their expenses scandals I guess you have to give Swinney a bit of credit for robbing the ball off him in attack and lobbing it all the way down the pitch into an open goal.

Indian election - mind boggling numbers
at 09:31 4 Jun 2024

'The world's biggest election was held in seven phases over six weeks with almost a billion people registered to vote'

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/liveblog/2024/6/4/india-election-results-live-new

''The mammoth seven-phase election – the world’s largest democratic exercise – began on April 19 and ended on Saturday.'

'How Modi would act in a third term with a reduced majority remains to be seen, said Verniers [a political analyst].

“While an internal leadership challenge remains out of the question, there may be a temptation to push towards further authoritarianism to compensate for the loss of political ground and keep alliance partners in check,” '

We get back to the Premier League, secure McKenna but players go on strike ?

'In a letter addressed to Fifa president Gianni Infantino and general secretary Mattias Grafstrom, seen by BBC Sport, Fifpro and the World Leagues Association say if Fifa extends its own competitions then it should alter others.

It adds that "imposing the burden of adaptation on national leagues and players is inherently abusive" and is "jeopardising national leagues and affecting the health and wellbeing of players"...

Molango (Professional Footballers’ Association chief executive) added: "Some of the changes in England with the domestic calendar is forced by what Fifa and Uefa have done. What has happened, even further confirmation something has to be done but also that it’s not affecting just the top players.'

Obscure Sir Bobby question

I was staying at the Riverdale Hall Hotel near Bellingham in Northumberland on Monday night and there was a photo on the wall of Bobby Robson with John Cocker and Jim Adams. I guess Robson was in his late thirties or early forties, anyone got any idea who the other two are ?

Another take from last night's SportScene - Lawrence Shankland
at 12:04 16 May 2024

Stephen Naismith's post match comments seemed to be almost certain resignation that Hearts were going to lose the thirty goals this season (and probably more to come in the final game) forward. As I have said before, he could be so good for us and we could be so good for him.

Ndaba last night
at 10:18 16 May 2024

With the proviso that this is merely from the 'Sportsscene' highlights and given that Celtic can be quite good at times, but Corrie looked poor and never quite in position - perhaps due to a lack of pace in such a competitive game. Not surprising that he got replaced after half time.

So not sure what is best for his development but suspect that MacInnes has taken that as far as he can. Is it too late for McKenna to effect an improvement ? Would a Championship loan make or break Ndaba's career ?
