#3035528 The good old EU

Posted by Griff9of13 on Yesterday, 05:24 PM

I have seen comments of those supporting the UK's opposition to this saying that the bankers will up sticks and move elsewhere. But why would they when they can commit multi billion pound fraud in this country with impunity? 




#3035429 Ref attacked in amateur rugby league game

Posted by Griff9of13 on Yesterday, 01:17 PM

Thanks Griff. Your experience seems to differ from gary's

 

I didn't say I'd never seen anything bad, but the ones bad enough to stick in my mind are only a handful out of many hundreds of games. I have witnessed (and been involved in) mass brawls. I have witnessed some terrible behaviour from the sidelines of one or two notable clubs, urging their team to maim opponents etc. I have seen many a ref take some 'stick' from the side lines, but never anything more than questioning their decision making. But never, ever have I seen a ref verbally or physically threatened. Thankfully.

The comparisons with Union made me smile

Newspaper - The Sun vs Telegraph
Supermarket - Aldi vs Waitrose
Car - Vauxhall vs Jaguar

 

I'm obviously watching the wrong sport. <_<

What a superb final that was, NZ deserved the win but fair play to the Aussies for not giving in and fighting to the end.

Now, how long until we get "australians 3rd team" etc. Oh, and Bentham will never ref an Australian game again. Had a very good game.


The Aussies should count themselves lucky they didn't receive another dozen penalties for all the last hits on Johnson when he was kicking.

That's out of order.


Normally, but we should make allowances in the case of Bird. ;)

Seeing as how closely our domestic laws are now entwined with EU laws I'd really like someone to ask Mr Farage how he would manage our withdrawal from the EU should he get his way, how long it would take and how much he thinks it would cost. IMO this process would take years and cost billions. Before we have to make a choice on the matter these are the things we really should consider.

#3031504 Ed Miliband

You mates at the BBC seem pretty sure

".... the government won its bid to re-sign the UK to 35 EU justice measures, including the controversial arrest warrant."

"All the three main Westminster parties support the European arrest warrant,"

Mind you, I suppose it must be good for the soul to try to force a vote that might defeat the very thing you support...a necessary qualification for entry to the Forum Labour Club (inquorate)


Yes all three main parties do support the EAW, but only one was so ###### scared of it's own back benchers that it had to concoct yesterday's farcical situation to try and hoodwinked them into supporting their own government's bill and drag a white tied Dave from a dinner engagement to make sure it got through.

...he also likes it when he gets airtime. Personally I'd starve him of Oxygen.


Same here. I refuse to knowingly click on anything that links to his ######, I'd hate to give him the traffic and legitimise his trolling and give him the attention he craves and was obviously deprived of when he was a kid.

Depends on two things:

 

  1. Will NZ lay off the sleeping pills?
  2. Will Aus pick their pet ref?

I had hoped that it'd been Joel Tomkins. Then at least his tour would not have gone without being noticed.


He certainly seems to have caught your attention; you mention him on just about every England related thread. :rolleyes:

Thats what we miss the good old days of having a solid centre aka senior, am not sure were going to produce a world class centre for some time and as we know a winger is only as good as his centre.


Percival at Saints is shaping up to be just that. IMO, if he continues to develop like he has been, he has all the attributes to become a world class centre.


#3029505 Yorkshire needs a big stadium

Posted by Griff9of13 on 08 November 2014 - 01:20 PM

The rhinos should buy ellend road! But they won't...
The RFL should have bought the rioch arena....but didnt
the broncos should have bought selhurst park...but didnt all missed opportunities!


Please god no. Elland Road is by far the worst sports stadium I've ever had the misfortune to visit.
