The problem with breaks is people drift away/lose interest.

Well Muslims shot and killed all the attackers.

Muslims are currently fighting ISIS.

It tells you that Brand is a narcissist, and it hints at his world view - that everything he does is to promote himself.


For example, check out his Facebook page and he is writing about visiting a food bank in Canterbury prior to the Question Time programme.


He seems to be one of those people who has to broadcast it to the world when he does something like that, again promoting his own image of himself.


He is clearly a quite intelligent individual, but totally selfish, from what I can see.


Visiting a food bank is exactly the sort of thing he has been banging on about for the last year.  The whole 'don't vote' shtick is about the 3 main parties being all the same, so why vote if nothing changes.  He thinks the people should get up and do things for themselves, hence his support of food banks, the Focus E15 group, etc.  His whole thing is that the politicians wont look out for you, and you need to organise yourself locally. 


Selfish?  He isn't a saint but selfish? 


Yeah go back to Hollywood Brand, we have had enough of you supporting those families being evicted.  Such a selfish act, supporting some down trodden types.  Supporting fireman in their campaign against pension changes?  What a selfish act....


Burn him!

Balence is saying 'the cut to X is justified as it allows the money to be spent on Y and Z'

It's not saying 'yeah but, yeah but, labour smell too'

#3038338 Season Ticket reminder

I don't disagree with what you highlight as the various issues, we lack engagement for one. (This forum, facebook, twitter, etc)


We are in a cycle that I cant see us getting out of unless we get promotion.  We rob Peter to pay Paul to get a decent team on the pitch, if we want a better ground (ownership issues aside) we would have to accept a worse team.

I have to say that I do not like funding peoples holidays in the name of charity, the ones climbing Kilimanjaro, Inca Trail etc.


Raise £3000 and climb Kili for free. (£2500 pays for your holiday, the rest to charity).


Don't mind sponsoring people doing these things when they have paid their own way.

#3037036 Ed Miliband

Posted by Bedford Roughyed on 24 November 2014 - 08:44 PM

Call me mad if you want but I still think he'll win!


I think they will 'win' too, but that's despite Ed rather than because of him.  (By win I mean most seats, I still think a hung parliament is likely)

#3036709 Summer/Winter debate

Posted by Bedford Roughyed on 23 November 2014 - 10:11 PM

So why does a sport that is played in every school in the country have more participants than the RL?  I can't understand it.

Blimey I know a Dr going to Sierra Leone to help treat people with Ebola. Brave and selfless action. True hero.

#3035968 RU Try of the Year

Posted by Bedford Roughyed on 22 November 2014 - 02:27 PM

As only 2 tries didn't involve a forward pass... Canada's should win, England second.

#3031388 Shaun Wane next England coach?

Posted by Bedford Roughyed on 11 November 2014 - 05:41 PM

I think Wane is a good coach.  His record is very good, better than many recent coaches.


I still don't like him. 


However, he would of matched Sheens in the moaning/pre match games.

#3030055 09/11/14 - Australia v Samoa KO 5am GMT (Wollongong)

Posted by Bedford Roughyed on 09 November 2014 - 10:27 AM

Sutton was ok, but Samoans made it easy for ref to give the penalties.

Andrew johns said something along the lines of -

Both teams are holding down for same length of time but Australia are more clinical.

Basically the Samoans were clumsy at holding down, the Aussies were tidy and subtle.
