  1. A day off? You do realise the game is on Thursday?
  2. Amazing gesture, fair play to Willem. And they are right...Bristol City legend!
  3. Arguably should have won both games against Exeter last season so fantastic to finally get a win against them. If they weren't already, then I'd imagine every team in the Premiership is going to be very wary of Bristol this season. Assuming Saracens lose their "appeal" then a tilt at the top 4 looks eminently achievable.
  4. Absolutely superb player. I actually prefer watching him to Kane. The way he's still at his peak aged 32 is particularly impressive. A certain Mr Rooney should've taken a leaf out of his book instead of flaking off to America.
  5. Anywhere I can watch this one on replay chaps? Sounds like a cracker Quite a big night of boxing on the 23rd and only four weeks until AJ v Ruiz to round the year off. Still massively worried for AJ in that one, could be career over if he loses.
  6. Hopefully the money will be used to offset carbon emissions, planting of trees etc
  7. Interesting. So their appeal will effectively be a judicial review, they can't actually challenge the merits of the decision. They will have to prove that the panel erred in law or that the penalty and fine is irrational (seems unlikely they'd win on that basis). Also, at the same time they were breaching the salary cap they went cap in hand to Barnet Council (a local authority that has been subject to huge government spending cuts) to get them to loan them money for a new stand! That is really shocking behaviour.
  8. If they win it will they qualify for it again next season? If so, then they should definitely be thrown out. Another question is whether they should be stripped of some of their honours over the past however many years they've been doing this...
  9. A "strong middle class background" oh no! Heretic! Burn him at the stake! An income of over £70k puts you in the top 5% of earners in the country so that accounts for every single MP. That doesn't mean they can't put forward and pass legislation that helps those less fortunate than them or low earners. Read my second paragraph again.
  10. "Amassed a considerable personal fortune"? He's been well paid as an MP for sure. The estimates of his wealth being around £3m seem to be basically based on his house being valued at around £1m (fairly unremarkable in London where the average house price is around £650k) and his pension £1-2m. Not sure where he has "amassed" wealth from elsewhere? No idea where this assumption comes from that just because you have been fortunate in life you can't care about the less fortunate/low paid workers or the middle classes for that matter, but there we go. I agree Abbott isn't great but think McDonnell is fairly impressive, certainly in comparison to the shit-show that is the Tory cabinet.
  11. It's been a joy to behold watching various multi-millionaires having complete meltdowns on twitter over the past couple of days after Labour dared to suggest they may raise tax on the very richest by a couple of percent. Don't worry lads, you'll still be able to afford your expensive accountants that know all the loopholes to ensure that you still end up paying less tax than the rest of us mere mortals.
  12. Big opportunity against a Sale side without De Klerk
  13. About 32 million working adults in the UK. The number of home workers is increasing year on year but I don't see why that has to be the answer when there will be cleaner vehicles available to the masses in the next 5-10 years. They are contributing towards deadly levels of air pollution so I think we should be concerned and take action. We need to look to the future, not be stuck in the past!
  14. Yeah looks like they went back on their 2019 promise. 50% of all sales to be electric by 2025 now https://electrek.co/2018/04/25/volvo-electrification-plan-fully-electric/
