#3109100 Gunships to stop migrants

Posted by JohnM on Yesterday, 02:46 PM

Understood. How do you tell who are Islamists, for example.

Looking at the situation in Calais, the refugees that speak some English have stated on TV that they want to come to England because you can get house and a job etc. Of course, they may well be wrong, but that is their view. It would be interesting to know if the Libyan refugees are under the same misunderstanding and where they see their ultimate destination.


Clearly we cannot, must not see them drown, or be exploited etc, but tossing the Christians overboard does not mark all off them as desirable immigrants.

Is she the voice of the suburban man and woman?

 

 

No. Really, no she isn't.  I'd say that "suburban" man, or maybe golf-club man and Con club/Lab club man would want to see every effort taken to rescue these poor  people,  and see them taken to dry land in their own countries. 




#3107138 16 Apr: Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by JohnM on 16 April 2015 - 09:32 PM

Jeez you've really lost it

 

Even trying my very very best, there is no way I can match the ###### that has been posted on here tonight about Wigan fans welcoming back a punished, chastened and now rehabilitated player.

 

Or are the moaners  just sore losers?




#3106698 Ben Flower interview in the Grauniad

Posted by JohnM on 16 April 2015 - 07:47 AM

it might have escaped people's attention, but I am no really a fan of the The Guardian. However, I think this is an excellent article. The column-inches of media coverge of Union extends well beyond mere match reports and we cast jealous eyes over the extended coverage that game gets, however controversial.

However, when we get a decent article exploring a real issues , a real situation, synchronised to Flowers return and tonight's game, we get the usual anti-wigan bile and personal attacks on the coach.

Says more about the critics than it does about flowers and wane.

Is there no  "fit and proper person" test in the RFL rules?




#3103442 General Election 2015 - Poll & Discussion Thread

Posted by JohnM on 09 April 2015 - 05:38 PM

It's certainly getting worse. Cameron said in 2010 that they had no intention of any more top down reforms of the NHS. It was one of the first things they did when they got into power.  How do you know when Cameron's lying?  When is he telling the truth would be an easier question to answer - never.

 

 

My post was meant as general rant about the whole thing, not as an opportunity for you to show your Arthur Scargill credentials.

Best photo of the campaign so far: 29486-16nwfdj.jpg

 

 

Brilliant photo. That exactly how I feel about the whole damned pre-election nonsense that is being served up by our self-obsessed media every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week in every paper and on every channel .  Cameron smiles...the arrogant ####. Cameron frowns, he thinks he lose, Cameron wont take part in a  TV "debates" because he think he will lose, Miliband looks gormless when he eats, Miliband is a towering intellect, Miliband is stupid,  Milliband this, Miliband that. Miliband the the bloody other

 

FFS SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Nurse! NURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

No, but it's getting worse. I don't suppose there's any mileage in them saying, " you know what, we really would like to do this that and the other but you know what, we cant do it because we can't make the sums add up, we don't have all the facts, we are bound by treaties, international obligations, global politics, commerce etc, and the facts of life. Anyway, we only saying that because we want your vote.

Its a good thing that a top player is returning to the game here. (hopefully)

 

On a side note, does Sam Tomkins have the worst Tattoo of any Rugby player ever?

works both ways.,,stop bitchimg and accept that it is perfectly OK to criticize your irrational and vituperative posts about Chase.
