  1. There is a book about Enke that is well worth reading. Very sad, but also very important.
  2. Think them moving ground and the bubble has a lot to answer for there.

    Who here has even mentioned "beggers"? What has that got to do with a big issue seller? I'm not defending people that aggressively ask for money and I've been annoyed by those who act in this way many times. They are different too people that have to ask for money for whatever reason. No one's demanding that you give money to anyone either, I don't care if people do give or not, that is up to them and in fact I understand the many reasons that don't, aren't able too, and I am also one of those people. As I said I've seen the damage of abuse and stigma towards people that are homeless, have complex needs including drug and alcohol use, and other needs. Someones decision to use substances is neither here nor there. It is not for others too make a moral judgement against and I ask people to try and not slip into that. I'm not asking people to give money to anyone. I expect fellow professionals not to peddle that stigma. Also just to point out that I've met people with years of experience who are amazing, and those that aren't. I've met those new to professions who are amazing, and those who aren't. I've seen how stigma can create divisions in a service and how it can lead to abuse of those that we are meant to help. That's why I think it's important too call it out.

    I don't have have 30 years, but I know the field well and work with groups of people who are massively stigmatised already. His comment was unhelpful at best, and at worst perpetuates stigma that people face. What the person spends their money on is absolutely irrelevant. People get physically assaulted, denied access to services, housing, healthcare etc because of the stigmas that those sort of comments feed and it was right to call him out on it.

    30 odd years experience and you've not learnt the impact that attitudes like yours have? It's irrelevant how people spend the money anyway, and you trying to create stigma around it isn't exactly helping those people is it? Maybe you should leave the sector if that's your attitude and I work in the same sector so quite happy to see the back of those views as they cause more damage than they resolve. Sorry for feeding into his post! Nice one by Fam and all those that take time to treat people as humans which seems to be increasingly difficult for some at the moment.
  6. Absolute screamer for Zak.
  7. Kind of unrelated, but good Pukki article here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49977448
  8. To be fair I'd probably rather be without Pullis and a league below. There is only so much fans should have to take.
  9. As a kid I used to love joining in with those songs when I could get away with it. Sometimes I'd get a clip (soft tap) around the ear and sometimes it'd be allowed to go due to whatevers happened on the pitch.
  10. If my mates did that I'd think it was hilarious and see the funny side. Obviously I'd be a bit wound up, but how sensitive can you get?
  11. Exactly what I thought. It doesn't match up and I wouldn't take what the EP is saying as gospel.
  12. If that is happening is very very tiny minority and comments like that are incredibly unhelpful. One of the big barriers to people seeking help is that themselves feel they are attention seeking, or others will think they are. Comments like yours just perpetuate myths around mental health.
