  1. Other Games 17/18

    I don't recall ever expressing an opinion on Pickford tbh.
  2. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    HF would probably know the answer to that if he could be summoned from Twitter. I think you could look at other clubs of similar stature in the league and make an estimation based on the income those clubs get in terms of commercial revenue.
  3. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    It's a high profile voice putting into words the feelings of many of the fans, and airing some of the hypocritical views, mistakes and fallacies put forward by the regime and those close to it. You're from Birmingham, right? Do the media not take up the sword on behalf of Villa fans from time to time? Or are all fans down there rather placid about the goings on at their clubs, thus not really inspiring any media discussion? I consider such an attitude to be rather servile but each to their own. EDIT - My bad, not really paid attention on here for a bit and didn't realise you were a WUM. Nevermind.
  4. Precedent Trump

    Yep, but as far as your average worker is concerned, you can see why they believe immigration is too high. The counter argument is the establishment of a living wage that is enforced properly I guess. All I'm saying is I wish we could deal with these issues instead of letting them ruin our countries.
  5. Precedent Trump

    I didn't say the fascists, I said the idiots. And if they are complaining about poor living conditions, little aspiration, reduced job opportunities, etc - then this is something that should be considered. Sure, the reasons they put forward for why this happens will ultimately be prejudiced ones, but we can tackle the issues and the prejudice at the same time. Frankly though, what I meant by my original comment really was that I have no lens on what Trump voters think of him issue to issue, and so little understanding of how the left is supposed to 'resist'. And from what I've seen so far, it's not calling everyone under the sun a racist. That seems to be helping Trump. I saw something in the Guardian the other day that stunned me a bit tbh, as much as it follows logically based on supply and demand; factory wages in the UK are rising as employers have to pay more to get workers, what with immigration from the EU falling. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/nov/08/shortage-of-factory-workers-starts-to-push-up-pay-rates#comments So clearly, concerns about immigration taking jobs and suppressing pay - in certain sectors - are valid. Why can we not address this? Our refusal to listen to people who feel this way is not helping and is creating Trumps and Brexits. I can't get my head around why some people are so determined just to pretend that this issue isn't happening, and that we can make it go away with name calling and looking the other way.
  6. Europe --- In or Out

    Yeah no, that's not what people on here were claiming. I was told in no uncertain terms that the Tories would collapse in and of themselves before we got to Christmas, then mid-Spring, then August. I daresay it'll be October next, then Christmas again, before finally March next year when the country falls apart. And I bet the fuckers are still standing even after that. Labour have been beyond pathetic but enough has happened to the Tories that the media should have torn them down over and over again by now.
  7. Precedent Trump

    So you think we should close our eyes, bury our heads in the sand, and not understand what the people who just voted in the worst president in history are saying about him now - and just kinda hope that it doesn't happen again? I'm not advocating for their views being held up as some kind of truth, or balance against factual analysis. I'm saying that their views should be aired and understood. Primarily so they can be challenged or considered from a policy perspective. And I'm not even talking about the actual fascists here, I'm talking about the idiots. The same sorts of idiots who voted for Brexit.
  8. Europe --- In or Out

    It concerns me that the Tories remain functional in government ("functional") and that Brexit is showing no signs of falling apart. It really looks to me like the Tories can survive fucking anything.
  9. Precedent Trump

    You reckon? It'd be interesting to see their voice represented a bit more in the MSM, as I really have no idea what any of them think about him at this point. Obviously the hard core far right will be a possible concern but the majority of Trump supporters are idiots rather than fascists, surely?

    Skye is fucking amazing like.
  11. General Random Conversation..

    I found this strange and depressing in equal measure.
  12. General Random Conversation..

    Yeah maybe the defamation stuff, but i think the interesting bit is that they all clearly spoke to each other, or were told to act. The right wingers seem to be getting ready to capitalise by painting Jones as a martyr. It'll be interesting to see what happens next.
  13. General Random Conversation..

    Right, sorry Adios, forgot you were here
  14. General Random Conversation..

    Alex Jones has been simultaneously banned from facebook, Youtube, Spotify and Apple. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/aug/06/apple-removes-podcasts-infowars-alex-jones The culture war, gentlemen.
  15. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    Troops man Maybe you aren't as worked up as you seem to be, but if you are, just let it go. Ashley isn't worth the level of emotional trauma you seem to be going through.
