  1. Can't tell if you're being serious or not. In theory it sounds utterly stupid.
  2. Fontaine was decent for a number of years too. He should have been dropped sooner, but that wasn't his fault.
  3. Went to Griffin Park for the game against Blackburn and really enjoyed it! Good to stand on the Terrace, they only had one song though.
  4. Got about 40 minutes left. Great interview and nicely done.
  5. If you are into your history then Mike Duncan's Revolutions podcast is quite something. Working our way through the Russian Revolution now. Haiti and French Revolutions were highlights. Then there is the British History Podcast that is current sat at around 350 episodes and just getting into the days of ****. Absolutely amazing effort. Another shout for Dan Carlin too.
  6. I never feel that happy on my first day back to work.
  7. It's all silly on a policy level isn't it? The government have this ideological approach of not wanting to go back on what was a poorly implemented idea in the first place, and so clubs have to come up with workarounds that allow us to kind of get away with it, but really the government should just change the law. It's the same with drug policy and the home office. "We know our drug policies are working and nothing needs to change." In the background though tons is changing because their approach is stupid and more dangerous. Credit to those that keep fighting for change.
  8. History doesn't have to equate to success.
  9. The fact that he's zoomed in on an Asian person is the problem. There have already been a spike in abuse given towards people from Asia so it's not really helpful is it? People should be aware of this stuff and social media. If it was said behind closed doors/messengers no one would be any wiser, or bothered.
  10. I'm sure you are nice, and the job you do is important, but it's not just a few bad individuals that let down the force. It's the institutional problems and abuse of power from the top down that are the reason that many can't stand the police. Without a massive overhaul that will never change, but I don't think there is any motivation to change it anyway. To say the hatred is unnatural shows your blinkered vision to be honest. It's come through the experiences that people have had since the first police forces were set up, and it's real, tangible, and tastes bitter. The police do a good job of validating it every day and this is particularly true in many certain neighbourhood's in Bristol and beyond. I think it's totally natural that many people hate the systems I've worked in, because those systems are also part of the problems that affect those we are meant to help. We can own that and fight for change, or I can say that hatred is unatural and invalidate the reasons why it exists in the first place as you have.
  11. This isn't every day either as I don't want to paint the roles as something they are not, but I've never seen anyone else, or personally felt the need to behave in the way that the police often do. I appreciate the "not all police" mantra and within the areas I have worked we also have bad people otherwise all of the abuse that has gone on wouldn't have happened. At the same time the police have often worked against the working class all through history. They are there to enforce the power of the state and protect capital. Breaking up strikes, valid protests, Squats, Ian Tomlinson, institutional racism, spycops etc. Then the way they have behaved towards people I know. I dunno why people want to jump to their defence so quickly. There is a clear power dynamic between the police and citizens which is often acted out with impunity.
  12. I've done Bar Work, Health care, Homeless work, Drug and Alcohol services and currently working within social care.
  13. Interesting though that many of us manage to diffuse violent and aggressive situations in work without needing to hit people around the head with a baton.
  14. Ah Marcus Stewart and Micheal Bridges.
  15. When I was a nipper Simon Clist was my favourite player for a bit. When he got put on the transfer list I posted on the Steve L forum complaining. I was probably wrong sorry about that Steve.
