There`s a bloke called Rob on the Chase at the moment. He`s a steward at the club, anybody know who he is?
|This is so true|
at 12:48 6 May 2017
A young woman was about to finish her first year of
university. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be
Labour Party minded and she was very much in favour of higher taxes to
support her education and for more government programs in other
words, the redistribution of wealth.
She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch blue-
ribbon Conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the
lectures that she had attended and the occasional chat with a
professor, she felt that her father had for years harboured a selfish
desire to keep what he thought should be his.
One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes
on the rich and the need for more government programs. The
self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors must be the
truth, and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how
she was doing at university.
Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 90%
average and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that
she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly
studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people
she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really
have many university friends because she spent all her time studying.
Her father listened and then asked, How is your friend Audrey
She replied, Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes,
she never studies and she barely has a 50% average. She
is so popular on campus; university for her is a blast. She's always
invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up
for classes because she's too hung over.
Her wise father asked his daughter, why don't you go to the
Dean's office and ask him to deduct 20% off your average and give it to
your friend who only has 50%. That way you will both have a 70%
average, it would be fair and you would both be equal.
The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back,
That's a crazy idea. How would that be fair? I've worked really hard for my
grades. I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work.
Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played
while I worked my tail off.
The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, Welcome to
the Conservative side of the fence.
If anyone has a better explanation of the difference between
Conservative and Labour, I'm all ears.
If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is
a great test!
If a Conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a Labour person doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a Conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a Labour is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned
If a Conservative is gay, he quietly leads his life.
If a Labour is gay, he demands legislated respect.
If a Conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better
Labour wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a Conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches
Labour demand that those they don't like should be banned.
If a Conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A Labour non-believer wants any mention of God and religion
silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)
If a Conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends
can have a good laugh.
A Labour person will delete it because he's "offended."
|Lawrence and the 10th booking|
at 18:42 17 Feb 2017
I know it`s a conspriracy theory but, something was niggling at the back of my mind while listening to the game on Tuesday, did Tom Lawrence get booked on purpose so he didn`t have to play against the team who wanted to buy him in the January window?. i will probably get shot down in flames but, why help stop a team from picking up points to try and get to the premier league when, you may be joining them in the summer?. He was in the ear of the ref from the first minute and MM was berating him but he still carried on until he got it
