|Denly opening, Roy batting at four|
at 12:32 2 Sep 2019
More muddled thinking in my opinion. Really difficult to see how Roy is selected ahead of Pope in the middle order now. Read on a cricinfo article (I think) recently that Surrey wouldn't dream of picking Roy ahead of Pope for red ball cricket.

bit of advice - a while ago there was a thread on here with someone asking for advice on laptops and someone posted a link to a 'build your own laptop' (not literally) site, where you could choose all the specs. Can't remember who it was and can't find the thread - if you are still out there could you repost a link?
And generally are there any advantages of doing this over a more traditional branded laptop (lenovo/Asus etc)?
|That cabinet isnt going to govern for long|

Will lose a no confidence vote in September, replaced with a centrist cross-party government of national unity led by Starmer etc. who will facilitate a second referendum. Can't really see any other outcome now, given Boris and the EU aren't going back down from their respective positions, and there have got to be enough tories would happily bring that lot down to stop no deal. If Corbyn was a credible leader they would think twice about it, but the threat of a Corbyn government is too small to stop them.

Surely with the momentum gained from the win last night this is on the cards? Is it too much to expect the titles as well?

Pat Bonner getting a bit uppity about a £15 million offer from Arsenal for the Celtic left-back:
"If Kieran was playing in England, he'd probably be worth about £50 million",
"Whether Arsenal is a big enough club for Kieran, that's the question".
|What does Boris do now?|

If he attends the TV debates there's a pretty high risk that Gove dismantles him - the other candidates left are also pretty competent speakers too, so he could end up looking pretty awful. But if he doesn't attend it will show him up for cowardice, and look very poor too.
It's pretty mind-boggling the amount of MPs willing to support him without his competence or ability being tested at all so far.

Should the 11,748 have clubbed together to buy the remaining 252 season tickets, thus triggering the 10% reduction across all season tickets, if those 252 remaining tickets were then loaned out at £10 per game to casual fans?

In playing the likes of Quaner and Bree now - given that we're probably going to lose most of our games anyway, and finish bottom by some distance whatever we do?
There's surely a chance (admittedly slim) that Jackson scores a couple of half decent goals, or Emmanuel puts in a couple of confidence boosting displays, and this gives them boosted confidence for next season.
|Genuine question re European elections|
at 21:35 9 Apr 2019
Why's the Tory party getting so worked up about this? Can't they just ignore them: not campaign, not vote, not stand candidates? Sure this would send lots of Brexit Party mini-Francoises to Europe, but isn't that their problem, and it's only for a few months, anyway? And what kind of person would stand in these elections - you'd have to be pretty desperate for a whiff of importance!

I entered a team in this last year:
It's a brilliant set-up, the rules are excellent and it's free.
I was top of my league until mid-August when I went on a long holiday without internet access and after that I couldn't bear to look at it again knowing I'd blown it.
If anyone likes the look of it you could set up a TWTD mini-league, limited to 16 teams last year tho.

Which firework display are you all going to? I'm off to Theresa's Brexitland festival today, got a great last minute deal on tickets, Rees-Mogg is in the panto, should be a cracker. Enjoy!
|the indicative votes set up was stupid|

It should have just been a ranking of preferences. Using the methods they designed if you assumed each MP has two tolerable options, there would be 3 times as many no votes as yes votes across the options. This makes it very unlikely anything would pass.
