#3098993 General Election 2015 - Poll & Discussion Thread

Posted by Ramite on 02 April 2015 - 11:57 AM

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.

No 'should be 'in this league , no easy games. If you don't turn up then you will lose.

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.

Hope he makes it in SL , nice to see Dewsbury players moving up to SL clubs.

#3062017 Stadium developments

More building work ? Had been talk when the east stand was built that a west stand could be done in a similar style. With the housing going ahead I think it will be something along those lines.

The whole austerity thing is nothing more than ideological nonsense. Especially when you notice it isn't working at reducing debt: Public borrowing rises to £11.8bn in September

Austerity hasn't tackled the deficit let alone the debt the country has. Currently the deficit is around 170 billion adding to national debt of 1.5 trillion. While borrowing maybe cheap we can't keep kicking the can down the road. Or we do and each generation leaves it for the next to sort out.

The guys never stopped running , great game today really had a good go in the second half. Leigh just had a bit too much for us in the end. Nice to see so many fans make the trip.

#2999345 Scottish Independence Referendum

Posted by Ramite on 20 September 2014 - 01:13 PM

DM talks of regional assemblies , its just delaying tactics. He doesn't want an English parliament for the same reasons DC does. Let's not kid ourselves they are both after power , an English parliament would do it for the Tories. Regional assemblies would mean Labour could control chunks of the north. Its different sides of the same coin.

If labour have alot less seats than the Tories in England maybe they should look in ward as to the reasons why.

#2998214 Rams Sign Five More New Players

Posted by Ramite on 18 September 2014 - 06:56 PM

I know little about him. When we signed Hale from Swinton he was thought of as a squad player , look at him now. GM has pushed a number of players on to the next level.

#2989905 Team and predictions for dewsbury at home

Posted by Ramite on 07 September 2014 - 01:08 PM

The problem is there is no game time for the young local talent as the west cumbria clubs do not have an U20 's squad like many other Championship teams do . If the Talent gets picked up then its usually by SL clubs that can give them game time and the Cumbria Academy but that ends when they turn past 18 yrs old so many get a job and some quit the game altogether .

Maybe there is some mileage in looking at a combined reserve team for the Cumbrian sides.I would rather have a combined reserve team with Batley than not one.

#2988504 Team and predictions for dewsbury at home

Posted by Ramite on 04 September 2014 - 07:08 PM

More likely down to our injury problems of the last couple of months we have had a lot of players out. Now a few are starting to come back the team doesn't pick itself for a change. If we do pick some of these players it will give them match fitness going into the playoffs. I don't underestimate Workington form team behind Leigh these last few months.

#2980094 The rumour mill

Posted by Ramite on 19 August 2014 - 05:06 PM

A mate at work who's a wakey fan has told me matty wildie is not getting retained by wakey so could it be him ? He says he's a really good player to would be really good with Thackeray at half back.

Not a bad shout that I could see him at Tetley s stadium. Will find out shortly !

Seems a little clearer now let's hope this format helps drive the game forward.
