    Yes there is as somebody who works for a disabilities charity I will state there is always a choice. There is a choice to do the bare legal requirement or there is also an alternative here to be truly inclusive and involve individuals in the whole experience v making wheelchair users a handful of lifts. 

    The design increased not decreased in height by nineteen metres. The design increased its inaccessibility.  

    A alternative choice could have been easily differing gradients and lifts. Unfortunately disabled people are not worth that consideration.

    Well said.

    Sell the ground to fund buying a decent squad.  Play away every week.  Away games are always more fun anyway.  Sorted!

    I can think of a team that did that. They sold their ground and then just squatted at another teams ground for years before stealing a ground from a rugby club.

    It worked out well for them, they were once described as "the Barcelona of the Conference" and they currently have a famous manager that most people in the country have heard of.

    And they get to watch Babestation every day.

    Are they genuinely "working class" (whatever that means these days)? I was, actually a little unsurprised, to hear them interviewed and it's fair to say Williamson accentuates his midlands accent and Andrew doesn't even have one. Not the only measure of whether someone is working class, but as with Idles, I get the impression they are a bit more suburban middle-England than they make out. Stand to be corrected tho 

    I think it's really hard to pigeonhole a lot of people nowadays. Back in the day it was easy. Factory workers, miners, labourers etc were working class. Clerical, bankers etc were middle class.

    It's more difficult now. Is an IT person earning £22k a year classed as middle class, whereas a factory worker on £28k a year gets classed as working class?

    If you work in a bank, but your parents were a cleaner and a building labourer, have you jumped up a class, or does your upbringing keep you as working class?

    It's all a bit silly.

    There is a huge part of me that thinks everyone should live and let live and that is utterly pointless to obsess on phrases other people use that you would use themselves.

    There is an equally huge part of me that hears people want to "jump on a call" or "speak to that point" that thinks human beings are fundamentally terrible and beyond redemption. 

    So, it sounds like you should try some blue sky thinking outside of the box.

  5. Other than some 20/20 cricket matches, I've only ever seen professional football.

    So, the best I've seen:

    Ryan Giggs (GB Olympic team)

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic (City v Man U)

    Nasser Hussain - this is cheating, I wanted 1 non-football but I never saw Nasser play. A mate of mine (literally!) bumped into him at a Glos 20/20 match 😂
