    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    He's a busted flush, the most hopeless prime minister in modern history? He's completely neutered himself inside of two months. This ruling has opened the floodgates for parliament to take control now, I'm assuming first out of the traps will be to remove Boris from being the person who goes and requests an extension?

    He's been found to have advised the queen unlawfully. Surely he should resign? Not that he will.

    Chelsea (A) Premier League - 22-9-19

    True but I can't help smirking, 11 ahead of the bitters as well even after them winning the summer transfer window trophy again.

    Chelsea (A) Premier League - 22-9-19

    Decent side Chelsea, we looked shattered in the 2nd half, lots of mistakes but we hung on. 10 points clear of the mancs after 6 games!

    Climate change - how arsed are you?

    Reading that myself, we're screwed. The sheer scale of change required at a global level across all aspects of human existence from economic and infrastructure through to social and individual behaviour is simply not going happen.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    I've thought that too but I'm just beginning to suspect that Boris is going to bottle no-deal given that a GE would now be after a no-deal exit in which case the potential carnage of a no-deal might not play well with the electorate? He clearly wanted to go to the country before they'd see the impact of no-deal.

    Lib Dems

    They really are Tory-Lite these days, long gone are the days of a closer affiliation to Labour e.g. the Lib-Lab pact. Then again my memory could be failing me and they've always been closer to the Tories? They're already ruling out a pact with Labour, of course if the Tories come calling after the next GE they'll be all too keen to lube up and bend over.
  8. That's it, AB's not quite as crazy as everyone thought.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    As was discussed on the radio yesterday, can't he go to the EU and request an extension in writing as instructed by parliament but he wouldn't be breaking the law making it clear to the EU it would be a very bad idea to offer one?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    'Surrender', it's appalling language and really reveals the populist (fascist) mindset. Despite all the kudos of what a brilliant strategist Cummings is, it does rather look like a dying government with two pretty awful general election routes available. Go before Brexit and be consumed by Farage or go after a no-deal Brexit and risk an election during a national crisis. On the assumption Labour fall for it that is?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Yep and we now have Gove refusing to confirm that the government will respect legislation passed by parliament. Parliament legislates not the executive and if this isn't the case it's the end of representative democracy.

    The New Cricket Thread

    Root's been bowling Jofra into the ground and he's knackered. Root needs to go as captain, he's a poor captain all round as is his batting and catching at the moment. It would be nice to have an English batsman with a brain rather than just attempting to drive at everything. Do they realise they don't have to thump every ball?

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Hoey would definitely vote for the government if it meant her beloved Brexit at all cost could be delivered. There are a handful of Labour MP's who might vote the same way plus the former Labour MP's. I read somewhere last week that they'd need a minimum of 5-6 disaffected Tories and it could require anything up to a dozen or so Tories.

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Says to me that he's not really in full control and is running scared of the likes of Pogba, given their wealth they've not really backed him in the market to any great extent. £70 million or so net spend is small change for them especially given the lack of quality in their squad.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    It's a great move, the 6th place trophy is really hotting up this year.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Does seem to be that way, they've put the roster together now for a cycle. I think it's missing an opportunity to not take advantage of our position, football is an arms race and we need constant evolution. I find it difficult to believe with a record turnover last year and most likely next year we can't afford to buy a top flight forward to cover for our front three? It's a glaring risk and we've been hugely fortunate so far.

    Napoli (Murrayfield - Friendly) 28.7.19

    Isn't it a tradition that we take a huge step back after every successful season? It might actually be a good move not to spend any money this summer and just get the next 12 months over with?

    Top Gun

    He's 5ft 2" as well. Do they have booster seats for fighter pilots? It's a real pensioner remake season coming up, Rambo, the Terminator and Top Gun.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    Just bring it on, we haven't had a good war for a while, what's not to love? Great TV. I know there will be thousands of innocent victims and it'll be an economic disaster but along with Brexit I welcome the coming apocalypse. This isn't real anyway is it, it's surely all reality TV? People keep telling me Donald Trump is the president, that's surely a wind up? Thank god we're in the capable hands of BJ now.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    True and on the face it we're supposed to believe that Gibraltar acted entirely unilaterally rather than in response to a direct request from the US. If it was the latter then the ambition of the US to drag the UK into this is pretty obvious. Certainly the delighted mumblings of John Bolton would suggest the latter.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    It's on the British government for choosing to be Trump's lacky and then failing to protect British vessels. They should have instructed Navy warships beyond the Montrose to the gulf as soon as they chose to move on the Iranian tanker. Equally given that the UK now has a tiny surface fleet which is wholly inadequate to police the oceans perhaps they should have stayed out of this altogether?

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    That might be part of it but his dodgy knee with the cheap rebuild has put a lot of top clubs off. Shame as he's a quality player.

    Donald Trump

    He's gone loco again, as you say, talk about thin skinned and fickle. This is the man we're pinning our hopes on for a generous trade deal.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Still clear as mud. Given that a GE election is possible later this year, what is Labour's position? Would they support remain or their own version of Brexit? If they won a GE would they put Labour's Brexit back to the country for a confirmatory referendum and if they did so which side would they support?

    Women's World Cup

    Bottled it, Neville's a shoe in for the men's team next time around.
