Have England ever picked a more uninspiring top 6 in a test match?
at 16:41 21 Nov 2019

18 wickets in 12 overseas games at 62 for Woakes though, I'd have Curran myself.

It's mainly Denly that's questionable - he's basically a good county pro who is in the team because he's very good mates with the head of selectors, nothing more than that.

It's good to see Sibley and Pope in the team, they both have a pretty good chance, I'd say. And I'm glad we aren't playing Bairstow and Buttler in the same team now which was daft.

Surely time to do away with the Windsors now?

Yes, it would be pretty much impossible to do a cost benefit analysis on the royal family. Whatever benefits there might be are pretty intangible, and we've no idea how many people would visit Buckingham Palace in a world where we'd kicked out the Royals and opened it up for ghost tours and stuff.

This is all anyone needs to know about this election. It really isn't about how many trees they're going to plant or whether they're going to try and nationalise Weetabix.

The Great British public. Us. You and me. All of us. Everyone. Like I said in the post above.

Leave wouldn't win, but if it did then first the Great British public would have to be awarded the prize for stupidest electorate in the world ever.

Think it's broadly right - there is zero chance of the manifestos of Labour or Lib Dem getting put into practise.

It's either a Tory hard Brexit with all that entails, or a second referendum on Brexit under a loose Lab / Lib Dem / SNP coalition. Following that second referendum, there'd be no chance of the coalition agreeing on much so you'd then probably get another General Election.

Sure, but can't really see Corbyn stepping aside, or Momentum letting him being pushed out the way.

If Starmer was Labour leader now they would win the GE. What Labour need is someone who can get across the detail of policy, to show up Boris for basically not having a clue. Corbyn can't manage this, but Starmer would embarrass Boris one-on-one.

Would fight off competition from Walsall and Tranmere to bring in a 19 year old left-winger from Cork with a big future ahead of him. Lambert doesn't seem able to pull off the same sort of transfer coup. Disappointing. You'd think in these international breaks he could be making a few phone calls.

Labour's nationalisation of BT...not so bonkers after all?
at 08:21 16 Nov 2019

By going down the Australian route do you mean making the country 32 times bigger and having a third of the population? Not an expect on infrastructure projects but I'm guessing that might be a factor.

the Borders railway, 34 miles of track and about 7 new stations cost £300 million in 2012. So, you might get one route and a bit with £500m.

We've all had a pop at Labour today, but what about this chump?

To send him into a frenzy of panic you basically just have to ask him anything about his character, private life or how he treats other people.

The downside of a Tory majority is that we end up trying to push on with Brexit, which will then dominate politics and public debate for years as various sectors of the economy are sacrificed etc and we ruin our standing in the world.

Or we end up with a loose coalition of Lab/Lib Dem/SNP/Plaid/Green which doesn't agree on much apart from holding a second referendum. Then Brexit is likely put to bed (hopefully) and we can get on with being a proper country again.

This really is going to be the worst election in memory isn’t it?
at 16:47 12 Nov 2019

I reckon they will lose significant vote share to Labour as the election gets closer as people realise how rubbish she is, and that voting Lib Dem in lots of seats is going to result on Brexit being likely rather than less.
