#3176629 2016 wish list and rumour mill

Posted by Ramite on 15 August 2015 - 10:57 AM

To be fair most don't , I have no idea how much the average player earns nor what the Rams playing budget is. Unless someone who knew filled in the blanks then people will just guess.

#3175246 Former minister says the UK is becoming a 'one-party state'

Cameron loves the power so much he stepping down before the next election is that what you mean ?

I think you still need a bit more reading on Putin. There are some similarity's for example they both have a head that is true.

I think it will be May leading the Tories in 2020. If Corbyn was elected leader I can't seem him making it to 2020. The infighting would make the usual Tory split on the EU look like a mild disagreement.

It seems to me that Cameron is modelling his career on that of Putin. He stands for election secure in the knowledge that he'll win. .

One of the most ridiculous things I have seen written on here. You might need to go away and Google - Putin.
Once again the boundary review is independent , you saying it isn't doesn't make it any more true.

#3174849 Club Statement: James Delaney

Posted by Ramite on 12 August 2015 - 11:53 AM

Well I think the club got it right. He isn't available for selection it seems reasonable to let the fans know. Equally to be fair to the lad they haven't said what it was , no need to go into that. Chris if the club said he was injured well you can imagine the outcry on here , certainly let alone how amatarish it would look.

#3159653 NHS future and Jeremy Hunt

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

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.

#3150087 Playing budgets

Posted by Ramite on 30 June 2015 - 01:58 PM

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.

#3127898 Rams turn down Wakefield approach for Morrison

Posted by Ramite on 23 May 2015 - 05:44 PM

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 ?

#3125281 £12bn in welfare cuts

. 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.

#3125077 Labour leadership contest

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.
