Re: Scott Wharton.

I'd ditch Evans. League 1 still above his level....

Re: Scott Wharton.

I think from watching him, his best position is centre back. But, he's a much better midfielder than Lenihan, with a lot more class on the ball; so if we're going to play one of the three out of position, he's the one to move. Assuming, of course, he's still with us at the start of the season which ...

Re: General Election

Well we can certainly quickly have a recession by spunking a load of money up the wall renationalising the railways..... ;)

Re: Scott Wharton.

Mulgrew would be wayyyyy better in midfield if you were going to do that.

Re: General Election

They will push it even if they don't meet the budget. They've done it before and I fully expect them to do it again. And the problem is that they won't meet the amount they want to raise because they've inadvertantly fucked the economy up. The problem isn't them not having enough to implement their ...

Re: General Election

Well, no, but then while I doubt that Labour will be able to deliver on all their promises, I think they'll push us in the right direction. I think the future under the Conservatives is infinitely more bleak, so I'll be using my vote against them. But you just said that unconditional spending is ba...

Well yes. Good. Better not do that either then.
So now you've ruled out both parties that have any chance of being elected, who will you make your meaningless vote for?

Re: General Election

As does unconditional spending, when the size of loan repayments becomes greater than your economy. Even with Brexit, under the austerity measures put in place, we have come out of a recession, and the economy has recovered. I really don't think it's a clever idea to try and get back to that. Of cou...

Re: General Election

Just a slight note on the IFS... although Labour can't guarantee sustained growth in the face of increased taxation, neither can the tories guarantee it with 5 years of further austerity... its a shame that the same risks aren't highlighted. The fact is that brexit and the fallout from it will have...

It's a difficult argument that requires grown-up debate that the government seems incapable of... no doubt an idiot from the left will be along in a minute to prove they're equally incapable.
Yeah, it's sad, given that's the whole point of politics in the first place: open debate.

Re: General Election

Labour brought in tuition fees under Tony Blair in 1998:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teaching_and_Higher_Education_Act_1998 The heating allowance cuts for the elderly are also totally valid. The cuts basically say that if you can afford to pay for your heating, then you don't get an allowance, if...
