#3159653 NHS future and Jeremy Hunt

Posted by Ramite on 17 July 2015 - 02:43 PM

Can we afford to run a truly 7 days a week NHS? Is there the amount of doctors , consultants , nurses available ?


#3159636 Kingstone Press Championship: Dewsbury 24 London 12

Posted by Ramite on 17 July 2015 - 02:28 PM

Gates are better than the mid 80's
But worse than early 2000

We have a bigger core support than batley for sure

And we're a million miles away from cougarmania

Would like to us have 2 seasons of winter rugby just to compare where the game is
And minus the excuses of summer rugby,days out & holidays

I do believe a "thining " of established clubs will take place over time for the game at a lower level to exist

In my lifetime seen teams disappear like
Chorley / Lancashire lynx
Runcorn /Huyton
Scarborough
Nottingham
Mansfield
Bramley
Kent
Cardiff
Bridgend

Championship my have to turn into super league 2
Without the funding super league gets
But yet still expected to compete

A trimming of the fat will come eventually

Whether we like it or not

But then those clubs have been replaced by others , look at CH1. Next season there may be 2 more Toulouse and Toronto.

I'm not holding my breath to see if it gets taken off hold or something replaces it that is half a job.
A surplus would be handy to make a vague attempt at paying off the country's debt.
It's currently 1.5trillion. GO won't go down as the best chancellor we ever seen but he won't be the worst. He has done averagly but its still better than ed balls could have hoped to do.

I'm sure Workington aren't rolling in money , but to be able to bring over 2 overseas players , sort out the visas , pay for the families to come over and house them and of course pay the players. That would indicate WT aren't that short , most of the league probably couldnt afford to do that.

He has certainly improved the team. No doubt that would be down to something else. 2 clubs must see something in him. Interesting to see any praise for him you link to PR. Tell me why don't you like him ?

. However, they also want to trade with the world - when the world sees a petty, small minded insular country who got a lot of their wealth by pillaging the world for the best part of 300 years they may be less willing to trade with them.


Nonsense by that logic nobody would trade with Germany because of the Nazis.

Its not as black and white as saying he was fiscally responsible or he went mad on spending. He was lucky he was Chancellor when he was. The era of cheap credit partly why there were so many PFI deals done , and then kept off the books so the economy looked even better. He can't claim that the global economy caused a lot of problems in this country while claiming the good times were down to him and nothing to do with the global supply of cheap credit. Can't have it both ways. As those articles show he got a lot wrong.

Graffiti on a war memorial, no. Direct action and protesting, absolutely. Violent direct action and protest, when necessary.

What realistic scenario would violence be necessary or provide a solution ? I would suggest this type of action would be counter productive assuming its aimed at the state and\or government.

Yes, to bail out their rich banker friends who plunged us into an enormous domestic financial crisis by lending money they didn't have to people who couldn't pay it back. Then they borrowed more to refill the trough for the fat capitalist pigs to burrow their snouts in once again and feed off the suffering of the poor and disadvantaged.


Sounds more like Labour. They bailed out their banker mates to the tune of billions. They helped them to start this mess with light touch regulations.Huge bonuses all round. This government brought in the bankers tax , cut back tax loopholes where CEOs were paying less than the cleaners. The best times for the city was under a Labour government , a free for all for the rich bankers.

I'm not sure how vital it is to have a story behind the song choice personally. However its not a red line for me happy to go with the majority.
