    Been thinking about posting in this thread but always feel like a wanker for saying this. However, everyone knows I’m a wanker anyway, so why not… 44 years ago my folks were told I likely wouldn’t even make 10 years of age. 11 years ago I was told I had around 2 years left. 4 years ago I was literally 15 minutes with the surgeon already in theatre from being cut right down the middle, intestines out and a stoma bag. 3 years ago I was told I was imminently going to need to go on the double lung transplant list. Now, thanks to a medical breakthrough, I’m deadlifting to Eye Of The Tiger in a commercial strength and conditioning gym and recently fucked a 26 year old who looks like Naomi Campbell. Never had such consistent health and energy in my whole life and am being able to think freely about building a future for the first time. Genuinely feel like Red when he gets paroled in Shawshank. It has been one fucking long uphill slog, 44 years it took me to get here, but if you can just hang on and stay in the game long enough, you never know how things can turn for you. Keep on keeping on. Never give in. Set up a Tinder account with a fake age.

    In a statement released on Tuesday, Rooney explained her decision, writing that while she was “very proud” to have had her previous novels translated into Hebrew, she has for now “chosen not to sell these translation rights to an Israeli-based publishing house”. The statement expressed her desire to support the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement (BDS), a campaign that works to “end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law”. “Earlier this year, the international campaign group Human Rights Watch published a report entitled A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution. That report, coming on the heels of a similarly damning report by Israel’s most prominent human rights organization B’Tselem, confirmed what Palestinian human rights groups have long been saying: Israel’s system of racial domination and segregation against Palestinians meets the definition of apartheid under international law,” Rooney’s statement read. “Of course, many states other than Israel are guilty of grievous human rights abuses. This was also true of South Africa during the campaign against apartheid there. In this particular case, I am responding to the call from Palestinian civil society, including all major Palestinian trade unions and writers’ unions.” She went on to acknowledge that not everyone will agree with her, but that she did not feel it would be right to collaborate with an Israeli company “that does not publicly distance itself from apartheid and support the UN-stipulated rights of the Palestinian people. “The Hebrew-language translation rights to my new novel are still available, and if I can find a way to sell these rights that is compliant with the BDS movement’s institutional boycott guidelines, I will be very pleased and proud to do so. In the meantime I would like to express once again my solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle for freedom, justice and equality”, she said.

    Kinell that Staveley woman looks like she's had the Lloyd Webber treatment - face carved off by a diseased butcher, beaten in a pinata, then piped back on badly ((c) Frankie Boyle).

    I've actually written something along those lines in this week's diary. It's partly tongue in cheek, but Messi does seem like the kind of bitchy, spoilt little shit to bear a grudge over something like that. I have nothing to base that on other than the impression I have of him, but seeing someone else say it now just makes me convinced I'm right. There's no way the two of us can be wrong. I also think we've missed Gini in the two big home games we've drawn. There's no way we wouldn't miss him, those were the games when he was always fucking immense. I'm not complaining about him being allowed to leave or even that we didn't buy a replacement. I'm just saying, we missed him in those big games because that's where he always excelled.

    I despair at how far this nation has fallen over the past few years and nothing encapsulates it more than the fat dickhead at a billionairs holday villa, a billionaire he put in to the House of Lords when said billionaire lost his seat at election, painting on the day his callous mishandling of public health that led to the deaths of thousands needlesly was announced, the same day his former closest aide claimed he didn't have a clue what was in the Brexit deal and they never intended to keep it any way as breaking international law in a toodler level hissy fit is fine. All of this is just the tip of an iceberg at the rank incompetence and callousness shown by these chancers and with every other struggle that is going on that they have created and presided over this is how he spends his time, without a care nor regret. Fuck him, fuck them.

    Said it a million times. It is beyond baffling how millions of people see him as a good fit to run the country. I wouldnt trust him to look after a goldfish Its always fun when engaging with a tory to ask what his greatest attributes are,or his greatest achievement. I thought the Cummings stuff would be the turning point,I would have thought that the fact that he was happy to sacrifice countless old people, would mark a sea change ,but it's barely made a dent. The media have fully sold this bumbling buffoon image but he has got the empathy of your average serial killer. Said it the other day but the domestic incident a while ago has been erased from history. Every word out of his fucking mouth is a lie and his attitude to violence against women is disgusting. I utterly despise him and if you cant see through him, you are a fucking simpleton.

    People who refer to mixed groups of men and women, or even groups of women as "Guys". Not sure where it came from but it is profoundly irritating.

    Some talk today of some woman from Little Mix getting grief for 'blackfishing' or some such, so thought I'd post a clip of the famous Kasper.

    The sheer incompetence is off the scale. My lad sent all the relevant forms off for his provisional HGV licence 6 weeks ago and still hasn't heard anything and yet there are 100,000 vacancies that need to be filled as a matter of urgency. Grant Shapps isn't taking anywhere near enough flak for this. The DVLA, DVSA etc are all under his department and yet the Gov't spin is 'there is a world shortage of HGV drivers'. So fucking do something you bellends, never mind making excuses sat next next to a fucking flag, people have put their names forward to do these jobs, at least give them the opportunity to actually qualify to do them.

    I'm starting to suspect that all the failures in Labour HQ under Corbyn weren't actually deliberate sabotage; these people are just shit at their jobs.

    Frank makes some excellent points, but I disagree that 1st July 1916 can be pinpointed as the start of the mistrust of the ruling class. That was indeed a terrible day, but the impact of the casualties was localised, most poignantly in the areas where the “Pals Battalions” were raised. In the days before radio and National newspapers, not to mention heavy censorship of military information, most of the population were simply unaware of the disaster at the time. The War didn’t discriminate and the ruling classes (or at least their offspring) also suffered badly. To name just one - the Prime Minister’s son, Raymond Asquith, was killed later in the Somme battle. I think disillusionment started after the Great War was over. Returned servicemen were poorly treated, and the whole “Homes Fit for Heroes” plan from the then Liberal Government proved to be an empty promise. There was mass unemployment in the 1920s, followed by even worse times in the Depression. Any person who participated as an adult in the Second World War had experience of the 1920s and 1930s, so went into WW2 with few illusions. My parents were part of the war generation, and they told me that the reason for the landslide Labour election victory in 1945 was that most of the population blamed the Conservative party (primarily Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain) for getting the country into another World War by not standing up to Hitler earlier.

    Michael Owen scored 158 Liverpool goals, won the Ballon d'Or while at Liverpool, won the FA Cup pretty much by himself in 2001 and contributed more than anyone to our treble cup season in 2001. He's the best young player I've ever seen and, if not for weird circumstances, would have come back to Liverpool long before he was forced to choose between Man United and Stoke. Michael Owen scores the goals Halle-lu-uh-yah.

    Daisy will be over in a minute to tell us how this is FSG's fault. And she'll mention Gini Wijnaldum while she's at it too. Top lass, our Daisy.
