Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I don't really think they need an elite spokesperson. They had more than enough publicity, and were certainly visible to those that really can make a difference. I genuinely think they would have been better asking her not to attend, or, to demonstrate just how easy it is to attend remotely. Apparen...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

So if everyone just plants a lot of trees, it becomes acceptable? If wikipedia is accurate, she lives in the UK:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Thompson It's not a return trip. She flew from Los Angeles to London, and then London to New York. I don't understand why people want to make excuses; ...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Yes but making movies doesn't contribute to their cause. It's all excuses so people don't have to practise what they preach, and is a big part of the problem. As an actress of note she could insist on only taking parts filming in the UK, for example. Yet they expect the rest of the world to stop fly...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

No. I'm suggesting surely she should compromise and not travel. I'm suggesting she's a hypocrite. She wants other people to stop flying, but isn't prepared to make that compromise herself: because she needs to do for her job. So, is she basically exempting all people from flying who need to do so fo...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

And Thompson lines herself up for more hypocrisy claims by flying back to New York. It's alright, though, sometimes she needs to fly for her job.... :shrug:

Re: The Bolton chaos

And the thing to do to combat this, is to stop watch PL football, stop watching Champions League football, especially on the telly box.

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I'm not sure. There are literally two things we can individually do which can have a realistic impact on climate change - stop flying and stop eating meat. Use Skype innit. There's a third. Die. There are simply too many humans on the planet, if many of us kill ourselves, then we can have a huge im...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Emma Thompson has been an activist on climate issues for as long as I can remember - I don't think you can call her a bandwagon jumper or say its for publicity. If the issue with the climate was that Emma Thompson is taking too many flights then it would be a legitimate argument... making the probl...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Nah. Hypocrisy is hypocrisy. If I was organising the protests I would have asked her not to show up. The real problem is with people who think that the action doesn't apply to them: which is exactly what Thompson actually advocated for there. It's not only hypocritical, but hugely arrogant. It's lik...

Barely got out of 2nd gear today. The 2 times we did we scored. If we could have been arsed we’d have won by 5/6 today.
End of the season, safe and with nothing to play for. Not surprised they couldn't be arsed. Shows how bad Bolton are, really!

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Bolton Wanderers, Mon 22 April 2019, KO 15:00

That is fair to say. In the past two seasons, he has only 1 assist according to Transfermarkt. For someone in the midfield, I expect a couple more assists at least, especially if you can't score goals. I don't know, I just think he is a really poor man's Gareth Barry. A very poor man's Gareth Barry...
