Strange John that it was a link to the revolutionary Trotskyist bbc that reported it


#3077728 Outstanding RU Individual Displays.

Posted by Phil on 24 February 2015 - 04:29 AM

Me for Crossley and Porter school v Heath school in 1973. I was unavailable to play in the away fixture and they caned us 84-6 mainly due to the running of Malik their fullback.

Back for the home game I dominated the backs and nullified Malik by dumping him on his ###### first time he saw the ball. We won 10-4. One of the great games according to Ken "league is a mugs game" Inwood our games teacher.


#3072240 Things I've learned in the last 36 hours...

They've tried reorganising, they've tried cost cutting.
The answer is........
Increase taxes to pay for it.
If we want a free at point of use service we have got to put more money in.
We have a great service and if we want to even maintain what we have, we have to pay more.


I'm sure those nice people at HSBC could help with that

#3064807 Exodus - Movement Of Rah People

Posted by Phil on 01 February 2015 - 10:09 PM

I don't recall any "stealing" going on. Do you mean when union players moved to Rugby of their own free will but were subsequently banned by union from moving back to union due to the bigotry of union? :ph34r:


I believe that's exactly what he means

#3061317 So I found this wallet

Posted by Phil on 26 January 2015 - 03:22 PM

When I was 18 I found a wallet, it had over 3 grand in it.

I handed it in to the local nick who contacted the owner. I was unemployed at the time, he gave me a job and although he has now sadly passed away I'm still friends with his family.


#3060505 50 years since the death of Churchill

Posted by Phil on 25 January 2015 - 12:37 PM

This story is anecdotal but sums up the feeling at the end of the war.

Churchill was inspecting one of the Yorkshire regiments when a soldier in the ranks said "Nah then Winston, shall we have jobs to go back to?"

Churchill says "Yes of course, your efforts will never be forgotten"

Soldier shaking his rifle "Aye there'd better be, we know how to use these now"


#3060465 State of our streets.

Smokers and gum chewers are anarchists.

Do we not have a bank of potential free labour idling their time on Playstations in jails ?


I'm an anarchist and I do neither, why free labour? Pay the rate for the job, whatever it is.


#3058069 To whom it may concern

I read somewhere that many prisoners switch to Islam because it gets them out of many duties and dirty jobs.


I read somewhere that a hobbit found a magic ring


#3057897 To whom it may concern

Posted by Phil on 20 January 2015 - 12:52 PM

Someone who is religiously inclined asks 'Who made the universe?'

Someone who is inclined towards atheism asks 'Who made God?'

The rest of us accept that the questions are too difficult to answer.

It is worth bearing in mind that a significant number of leading scientists do believe in a god of some sort.


And shedloads don't

What time are you playing? I am off to a do in Copley on Saturday night but if it's rubbish (and others agree and aren't going to the Acca!!!) I might pop in.


Kicking off at 9 if you come along do make yourself known


#3055381 Conversation with a union player....

Posted by Phil on 13 January 2015 - 08:40 PM

...recently, a prop, who admitted to me there are games in which he never touches the ball.

I couldn't help retorting that I'm sure there are union props up and down the country who aren't even aware that a ball is involved.
