Re: Brexit....or in.

I had, some reason my post didn't go up. Estimated cost of 3.4 billion to the treasury.

Re: The VAR again!!!

As I saw it, the main bone of contention was that the shot was going well over the bar until it hit the player. I've seen a few pundits saying that, and surely it shouldn't matter at all.

Re: General Election

Yep, Germany and Japan were the ultimate winners. The amount of resource put into both countries after WW2 in order to prevent repeating the bitterness from the reparations of WW1 & subsequently WW3, was astounding. Completely set up both countries to be major players on the world stage. Oh, is that...

Re: General Election

I think calling him a villain will upset a lot of people, though. Probably not wise for someone in politics.

His prior answer also shows that he's not really suited to politics as well. ;)
