Now hang on, without railroading this thread the EU havnt exactly covered itself in glory during this crisis. 

 

The tories were split down the middle during brexit, they lost two serving prime ministers and were heading towards civil war, Corbyn (although ridiculed) took imo a wise position on brexit of wait and see. Let the tories implode.

 

However Corbyns strategy didnt suit the right wing in the labour party the self preservation of the lib dems and the hounds of tory compliance the bbc.

 

I make no apologies for rejecting the capitalist charter of cunts  that masquerades under the European union banner.

Nigel speaking truth to power, the fucking imbecile.

 

Genuinely worth a couple of minutes of your time just to see the transition to the British Alex Jones in its infancy.

How has no-one sparked him out? 

 

We need Jo Swinson to guide us through this mess.

But you told me that Brexit would finish the Tories. When, in fact, the opposite has happened.  It has empowered the Tories and destroyed Labour. Now here we are in the midst of a deadly pandemic with a massive Tory majority.  The Tories have free reign to do as they please and a lot of it is down to the toxic populism of Brexit.

@mattyqTerrible news man, all the best.

 

Was he in good health previously?

No mate, we were all very worried about him as he's a diabetic, heavy smoker and alcoholic

Sorry to hear this, matty. Hope he can pull through. I hadn’t seen your post when I wrote my response above. Really sorry if it seemed tasteless coming directly afterwards.

No worries, Ben

No it isn't. Its because the people misjudged the mood. The poor were getting the short end for years and people were willing to throw the dice . It's like the Bob Dylan lyric " when you got nothing you got nothing to lose" 

 

I'm still convinced that if parliament would have ran its course (as it should have) instead of the lib dems and Tories forcing an election then we would now have a hung parliament where all options would be open.

Michael Rosen, children’s author, has spent a night in the ICU. Now stable in a ward so hopefully he pulls through. Always seems a good egg on Twitter.

Well parliament didn't run its course and now there's a massive Tory majority.  A lot of that is down to Brexit - it tapped into the mindset of the typical Tory voter.  

 

So it's no good you bemoaning what the Tories might do during a pandemic, you brought that on yourself.

At the moment my overriding emotion is anger

The silly fucker had everything going for him but the last few years he's been determinedly drinking himself to death and it looks like he'll finally achieve his goal with a little help from Covid

Such a fucking waste!

    • This makes sense.   I'm sure an organisation like FIFA will see the value in waving goodbye to over a billion quid so that the AFCON and a few leagues can have plenty of time to finish their seasons without having to overwork the players.   After all, for FIFA, it's really always been about player welfare over money.
    • Jürgen Klopp has struck a realistic tone when discussing the likelihood of big money transfers arriving at Liverpool this summer.

      The fan reaction to the Reds deciding to pass on Timo Werner has been mixed with the club owners coming in for some criticism especially as he seemed to be a player that Klopp was reportedly very keen on.

      But on the other side of the coin, there were some astute voices casting doubt on whether the striker was all that keen on the move, especially as he was far from guaranteed to be a consistent starter, and indeed if would be a good fit for the side.

      Klopp spoke yesterday to Sky Germany (via The Mirror) regarding Werner and another player who has been linked in exciting midfielder Kai Havertz.

      And he said in the current climate, all best laid plans are out of the window.

      “There are a lot of good players on this planet.

      “Timo Werner is a great player, Kai Havertz is a great player.

      “Right time, opportunity - everything has to come together. Six, seven weeks ago, we didn't know if we could play again this year. 

      “If we hadn't played the second half of the season, we would have thought, 'OK, when can you really play football again?' And now it starts right away.

      “We act as if everything is already settled. It's not settled. 

      “We use this little loophole we've been left to play football again Everything else we have to see the moment it happens. 

      “We can't pretend now that everything's going to be fine in the future.

      “Discussing with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buying a player for £50-60m, we have to explain."

      Klopp raised a valid point when mentioning that Football clubs have a lot more to weigh up other than just comings and goings in the transfer window at this point of time.

      "There are all sorts of rumours in England about who Manchester United are going to pick, Chelsea are going to pick.

      "It's rather quiet here (at Liverpool) at the moment, I think it's safe to say. 

      “If you want to take it seriously and run a normal business and depend on income and have no idea how much you will earn... especially because we don't know when we can start playing with spectators again.

      "At the moment, all clubs are losing money. Without spectators, we have to pay back the season tickets and probably sell none next year. 

      “At least maybe without the first 10 or 15 games. The VIP areas won't be packed and the tickets won't be sold. This will have an impact on other partners and things will look a bit different.

      Going by what the manager said, it seems like the dream of seeing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Jadon Sancho, or Adama Traore wearing the Red of Liverpool may be on hold for the time being.

      On a more positive note, Klopp signalled the chance for fans to salute their heroes in grand style even if it has to be sometime during next season.

            “There comes a day when life will get back to normal.   “When someone has found the vaccine, when someone has found a solution to the problem, when infection rates are zero or below - that day will come eventually. Then we have the right to celebrate what we want to celebrate on that day.

      "If this is the 12th or 13th matchday of next season and we want to celebrate it - who is going to stop it? 

      “Then we still have the trophy and then we can drive it around town and stand on the bus. If other people then think that we are completely crazy, I honestly don't care.”

      “Can it then still be a special celebration? No question. It's different, but different is sometimes absolutely OK."

      As well as the global pandemic, the world has been unified by the tragic death of George Floyd under the watch of members of the Minneapolis Police force.

      People taking to streets has become the norm and Footballers have also been at the forefront making their views known on the matter including the Reds squad who "took a knee" at training last week.

      Klopp was extremely proud of the stance they took.

      “It's so natural for us that we didn't even think about sending a message at first. 

      "Because it's completely normal, nobody realised that we would have to say it again. But then the boys noticed it. Then they spontaneously decided to do it.

      "I have been very proud of the boys for a long time, but this was another extraordinary moment. When I saw them there and this photo was taken, I was really proud, because it is also an important message. 

      “No question about it."
