How much does it cost to stage a by-election, just to re-endorse someone who decides to switch horses mid-term?

It would be much cheaper if they scrapped this voting business.  I entirely agree, John, but I never thought you would come round ;)


In Topic: Club Twitter follower rankings

I do too.  My main interest is in the expansion clubs and international clubs so I follow all of those.  Makes for some interesting reads too sometimes.  But I would imagine many of the numbers listed in the OP will have duplicate followers in them so the figures for the sport overall will be lower even that the numbers above indicate.  But we aren't a big sport and we have no profile to speak of so it's not surprising that the numbers are low.  They do seem to tally with the size of the area in which the clubs are located though.

Are you following @Copenhagenblac1 (over 900) and @denmarkrugbylea (over 1100)?

He was a contemporary of Victor Obogu, Jeremy Guscott, Andy Harriman, Adedayo Adebbayo and Steve Ojomoh. They've got 112 caps between them. Can you guess what else they have in common?

True, though at the time that Offiah went to league, they were yet to play.  The only black English rugby players that were playing for England in his lifetime up to that point were playing league.  He might well have percieved it as an issue.  That said, he was certainly hoping to make the squad and one of the conversations in which Loughton persuaded him to come to Widnes was detailing his weak kicking game as a reason he would not play for England RU.
