#3108287 Wakefield thrash 4th placed Halifax

Posted by Phil on 19 April 2015 - 07:58 AM

Not a thrashing at all, fitness told in the last quarter which you'd expect with Wakey being full timers

As a Fax fan I was happy enough with our performance

...and the affluent left already on the property ladder chops off the bottom rung to stop others joining them!

So selling off social housing stock will ease the housing crisis how?

I posted on here months ago that the biggest benefit scroungers are businesses paying low wages. I was shot at by the usual suspects but I stand by my point. Tax payers are subsidising businesses who pay low wages.

Phil, do you believe in projecting that violent revolution beyond a country's own borders or is it internally focused? Hope that makes... genuinely interested!



The old anarchist adage is "peacefully if we can, forcefully if we must" as an anarchist I'm also an internationalist. Hope that helps make sense.

John M, I don't get this "politics of envy" line, I've had it trotted out at me on many occasions by tories. Fact is, I'm doing ok, I have a good job, nice house, couple of cars, we get away on holiday twice a year.


What I don't like is the attitude that if I suggest the rich should be compelled to share out their riches then it could only be because I'm jealous couldn't it?


I'm not a wishy washy liberal, I believe in violent revolution and I know that makes me a minority of one on this board, but so be it. What I'm not, is jealous of the royals or the uber rich, or Richard Branson or any of that lot.

the Tory crimes were going unchecked

Rubbish and nonsense. Basing an outdated and discredited political philosophy on a work of complete fiction is something that is normally reserved for irrational beliefs such as religions.

Like to refute the arguments in The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists point by point then?

Or carry on voting for a party representing a dieing philosophy which has tried everything and still can't employ feed or house all the people who live within it?

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

#3077728 Outstanding RU Individual Displays.

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.

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

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
