    Man Utd Fans

    More successful than us for 30 years but no songs celebrating league wins or European runs just anti scouse bile on repeat. It defines them. Few shiny skyscrapers in the centre and Shameless estates everywhere else.

    Global Britain sailing the Seven Seas signing trade deals with our former colonies in a vessel built for the 1880s while millions struggle to pay bills sounds about par for the course.

    The Snooker

    Yeah she’s boss, think she’s a Red, too. Don’t know why they’ve brought the current players in. Agree about Trump and saw that bit with the rest!

    The Snooker

    Think the coverage has been really good this year. Hazel is brilliant and I’m glad she’s back, the younger presenters are decent. Hoping Bingham can get through as it’s looking like Murphy.

    The Vietnam War Thread

    Got the makings of a book and Netflix series that mate!

    Lads' holidays

    Had just done a 20 minute jet ski (still buzz off it now) in Tenerife, got off and walked up to the nearest bar and watched as 9/11 unfolded. Surreal.

    Just a bunch of spivs with posh voices and nice suits fucking up everything that was ever any good so no one notices them robbing the country blind. That Dowden was on the snooker yesterday. Steve Davis thought he was a cunt, too.

    The Vietnam War Thread

    That’s quality. I think having seen the films about Vietnam as a kid it’s in our consciousness. Great photos. Must be weird that mix of French colonial, pre Communist and Communist Vietnam. I watched Chris Tarrant on Extreme Railway Journeys about Vietnam, too.

    That GB News starts soon, but Murdoch has backed off his version. Malignant cunts.

    Boris Johnson

    Totally agree, it was a weird take to even remotely praise Cummings. They’ve used Johnson as the front man, now the real forces behind Brexit have got their men and women in position it’ll be a free for all wrapped up in the Union Jack.

    Labour have been stitched up royally since 2010. Standing with Tories in Scotland. Having to take a position on Brexit. Corbyn scaring the establishment because Momentum actually started to do proper political campaigning. Tories using austerity cuts to local councils and the Metro Mayors to deflect the blame. It’s even starting to cut through here on Merseyside with the local chatter about dodgy councillors and Rotherham not standing for anything other than Peel Ports. And it’s a nightmare because there’s vast areas that are just getting abandoned again, and people left with an impression that politicians are all the same. Apathy means Tory rule in perpetuity.

    This is from the film on Netflix about the ANZACs called Danger Close.

    The Vietnam War Thread

    Found this the other day. Declassified photos taken by US military photographers. I agree, it’s a fascinating period, both the post WW2 French colonial era to the unification of Vietnam, and the impact back in the US. https://allthatsinteresting.com/vietnam-war-photos?fbclid=IwAR2JA5ydGBJjdeLUXDOv7hfdqNAvcIqBvmDiyiqWdVxhqnb6xxkkO_kgteA#4

    I’ve watched the Adam Curtis doc’s on iPlayer Can’t Get You Out of My Head recently, as well as You Rang M’Lord after watching docs on Croft and Perry. I think there might have been a joyous period in the 60s when old and new came together, but even then if you had dug beneath the surface it was nothing more than a fleeting feeling, and it masked all the nasty shit.

    After the 2015 election I was listening to Stephen Nolan on 5live, the phone in type show. 3 callers were a microcosm of this country. First up, a Brummie fella, working class, voted Tory because he believed the shit about working hard and the Tories looking after him, despite being on Working Tax Credits, and he was crying that they’d back tracked. Next, an old school Scouser, fire and brimstone type, delivered the classic line “ the only time the Tories are interested in the likes of us is when they want to put a rifle in your hand and send you over the top.” Then, some OAP from Ipswich who complained there used to be loads of strikes in Liverpool. Easy to further divide a country than to somehow unite it after 40 odd years of Thatcherite individualism and class warfare dressed up as freedom and progress; that’s the dilemma Labour face. Plus a hostile media environment.

    Boris Johnson

    From Politico email this morning. “Our Churchill.” DIALING UP THE PRESSURE: A Home Office minister will this morning be asked whether Boris Johnson will finally change his phone number after it turned out to be sitting on the internet for 15 years. The astonishing revelation was delivered in the Popbitch newsletter last night, leaving senior figures at Westminster shocked and the U.K. embarrassed on the world stage. Popbitch reported Johnson’s personal mobile number is available from a 2006 press release during his second stint on the opposition frontbench. Playbook can confirm it’s true, but whether the number still belongs to the prime minister this morning is another matter. A female voice now answers its calls: “This person’s phone is switched off. Please try later or send a text.” Safeguarding Minister Victoria Atkins is touring broadcast studios and will be answering questions about it right now. Call for access: The news is not just embarrassing for Britain (imagine if Joe Biden or Vladimir Putin had their mobile number sitting online for more than a decade) but poses a national security risk. “This is extremely worrying with massive security implications,” Labour MP Kevan Jones, a member of the intelligence and security committee and a former defense minister, told Playbook. “It needs to be investigated as a matter of urgency why this has not been addressed before now. It leaves the prime minister very vulnerable.” Indeed, it’s madness that spooks hadn’t checked and found whether the number was in the public domain before. Downing Street declined to comment.
