    Leeds? If so, it's her.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    They had a field day yesterday, the whinging cunts. It's hilarious how some Juventus fans, even those bereaved, have moved on from Heysel (or appear to have done so) much quicker than Evertonians have. They genuinely do think that they were the real victims of it all. But, still sing their Manc songs. They're so disingenuous about it all too. Let's be clear. They don't give a single fuck about any of the people who sadly lost their lives on that day. It's simply something they can hijack and use to try and score points. I saw somebody refer to them as "grief thieves" the other day and it's a spot on description. Plus, they constantly claim that Heysel never gets talked about. Of course it does. You cunts never shut the fuck up about it. And, they accuse Liverpool fans of never wanting to discuss it. That's simply a lie. I'll happily discuss it. Loads of Reds would. But not in the limited way that the bloooooos want to discuss it: inane "murderers" and "never your fault" shouts. I'd happily discuss the context of it all. Including the crumbling stadium, the poor segregation, the relevance of Rome 1984 to the whole situation, that it was a fight between two sets of "fans" that ended up with innocent people bring caught up in it all, that it was a disaster that was likely to happen elsewhere if not at Heysel given the hooligan problem that pervaded the entire sport at that time. And, obviously, the culpability of some of our "fans" for what happened, but noting that it can't be ignored that their conduct was no different than a multitude of English fans in the 70s and 80s, with it, sadly, just being the consequences of that conduct that separated Heysel from other acts of English hooliganism. But, they don't want that. Any attempt at discussion will inevitably be drowned out by that inane "never your fault" shout. The truth of the matter is that, if anything, it's Evertonians and other rival fans who don't want to discuss Heysel, unless it's on their basic, rather juvenile terms.

    Coronavirus

    Up until today, we've had no test figures for the past seven days. There's two days left in May and for the 200k tests by the end of the month target to be hit. What's the bets we'll get the figures back today/tomorrow and they'll miraculously exceed 200k?

    Scum. I wonder if this will get as much attention as the murder by scummy authority we've just seen in the US? #PalestinianLivesMatter https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/30/israeli-police-shoot-dead-palestinian-man-jerusalem

    The New Leader of the Labour Party

    He'll be tarred and feathered by the Twitterati. For sure. But, I'd like to see the context of the article, particularly when a Google images search of "fatcat caricature" brings up LOADS of images of rotund businessmen puffing on a cigar. EDIT: Just read a bit about this and it's the cover of the Spanish version of one of his books.

    The New Leader of the Labour Party

    This is a worrying development (ignore the headline about the CLP member's alleged criticism of an attempt to build bridges with the Jewish community - it's sensationalist bollocks which isn't borne out in the main text of the article itself). An unwillingness to totally submit to the narrative that Labour is/was rife with antisemitism may now be an offence that results in suspension from the party. It appears that we're now in the shut up, know your place and challenge nothing phase of the purge. https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/four-members-liverpool-wavertree-labour-18334533

    Racism in Southern America..

    Some TV station is claiming that the police officer, Chauvin, knew George Floyd as they spent a lengthy amount of time working together on the door of a local restaurant/bar.

    Donald Trump

    Re: the fact checked post, the policy was only brought in in March 2020. Twitter introduced a Civic Integrity Policy stating that they will provide an alternative/additional context to tweets relating to the 2020 Presidential Election which contain "synthetic or manipulated media." I agree that they shouldn't have tolerated his past shit either. But, he's breached a new policy. Action has been taken. His opinion can still be seen. There's no issue. Twitter are a commercial entity. If they don't want to have their reputation damaged as being seen as a platform which allows politicians to spread incorrect information, they're entitled to take steps to do that. Trump can always set up his own website if he wants a platform to post misleading claims, without clarification.

    Donald Trump

    His freedom of speech hasn't been impinged upon. The tweet about postal voting was posted. He's had his opinion voiced. In the interests of not wanting to be a platform that is seen as subverting democracy, Twitter have seen that a high profile politician is using their platform to potentially lie about the democratic process for their own benefit and, having left the tweet up, have posted a link to an alternative source of information on the subject discussed so that a balanced view has been offered and users csn make their minds up with access to ALL the information. His tweet about shooting looters is also still up. He's spoken. He's had his say. But, in doing so, he may have breached a condition of the platform he's decided to use to voice his views and that platform has hidden the content of his tweet, which can still be read by clicking on the warning. He's been subject to the terms and conditions of use and the consequences of breaching those conditions that every Twitter user accepts. If he thinks he's above the Twitter policies, he's always welcome to use another privately owned platform. But he'll be subject to their conditions of use too.

    It is. But, reading that article makes you think that that statistic might change.

    Another example of why it's ridiculous to spout the "if you're under 60 you'll be fine" rhetoric. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/28/british-pilot-coronavirus-vietnam-wakes-coma
