Re: Brexit....or in.

Well given the lack of vote on the proposed deal it's only a matter of time before a vote of no confidence. Which will be amusing cause Corbyn is anti europe....

Re: Brexit....or in.

Politics generally has become too partisan. This thread demonstrates it. Two party politics shows it; death threats from supposed liberals towards their own party members as a good example.

Democracy doesn't work.

Re: Brexit....or in.

There are always other agendas driving people. I think the thing I object to is the assumption from most of my social circle that the people who voted to leave were uninformed and that's why they voted that way. It's not necessarily true. And yes, people will be more informed on what's possible now,...

Brexit....or in.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46451970 I'm amazed anyone is even surprised that the advice said this could lead to an indefinite link with the EU. Seems obvious to me that it would simply be a way to hold the UK hostage in the customs unions without having any say so. Anyway, I stand by the...

Re: Wigan v Blackburn Rovers, Wed 28th Nov 2018, KO 19:45

What where your thoughts on the game Blackbat? Didn't watch it. Two pretty bad results on the bounce, soubds like the players are a bit jaded at the moment by all accounts. Still, not the end of the world, and I think more an indication of how well we've done at the start of the season. Success beg...

Re: Calling all parents

You're totally focussed only on your experience. For my experience: I personally did not stay on the maternity ward the whole time for four days: I didn't need to. Ah. You mean you're focussed on your experience. No, I mean you are only focussed on your experience. As with many things, you don't se...

Re: Calling all parents

You're totally focussed only on your experience. For my experience: I personally did not stay on the maternity ward the whole time for four days: I didn't need to. Going downstairs to get coffee wasn't a problem and I was actively encouraged to do so by the midwives in order to take a break. Going a...

Re: Calling all parents

You're totally missing the point here and focussed only on your experience. You were in for a day. My other half was in for four days, Dan and his partner were in for 9 days. Should they be providing my meals for the duration? Which meals? For the whole ward? For each maternity unit in the country? ...

Re: Calling all parents

I think it is an either/or. There's only so much space in a hospital for beds. I'd rather on a maternity ward they dedicated that space to new mums. I'd rather they didn't spend budget on free drinks for Dads compared to all the other things they could spend money on to assist with ensuring that th...

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 24 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

Let me tell you about Preston fans. The Chinese have the best Preston fans. If we did Preston fans like the Chinese Preston fans, our Preston fans would be really something. People ask me about our Preston fans, and say "how do you get the Preton fans blades turning so fast?". I just laugh, but I te...
