  1. Those nice tories

    I reckon “blast” is what William says at the critical moment.
  2. I’m on my phone now but when I’m near a computer I’ll edit the post to something along the lines of rumoured.
  3. Although the reason Celtic didn't have much money in the 80s was because of them acting as a conduit for funds to the IRA so, y'know, not being as bad as Rangers doesn't make them particularly pleasant. The above is a 'what I heard from someone who is in the know about quite a few similar things' but I accept that that's not going to stand up to too much scrutiny here. Feel free to ignore.
  4. VAR

    Because football is only assessing where someone is standing at one exact moment of play.
  5. Channel 5 paid c.£1m for a four year deal to show the RU Premiership.
  6. The Culture Wars

    Good lad, leaving Kudrow for me.
  7. The Culture Wars

    There are huge and genuinely funny programmes from the US that are so far beyond niche here it's untrue. Seinfeld is one - again, though, somewhat problematic racially - and another would be Parks and Recreation. The latter probably just as well now that Louis CK and Aziz Ansari are having difficulties (though I am currently going through all seven series again and have no intention of stopping). We don't get any Australian programmes over here beyond Neighbours and Home & Away (and Masterchef Australia as W's most popular programme) ... I assume you don't make any others.
  8. The Culture Wars

    And I suspect all this faux controversy about it is just to drum up any level of interest in the fact that a 25 year old programme that has been shown daily on E4 and Comedy Central for the past 15 years is now also on Netflix.
  9. The Culture Wars

    You missed out that everyone lives in a huge apartment with an unlocked door.
  10. I bet that sounded really wise in your head.
  11. Our new position in the EU

    You’re replying to points I didn’t make.
  12. Our new position in the EU

    The truth is you never know what the public will accept until you test it.
  13. RT @Okeating: Boris Johnson is in with talks with North Korea. There's no diplomacy to be had with such a belligerent country, divorced fro…

  14. It might have changed a bit from when I was last actually at a Scottish football game (mid 90s) but Hearts were definitely the Protestant team (I was leafleted by the UVF on my way in once) and Hibs the Catholic team. Although for both the dig was that they were just Rangers/Celtic fans who couldn't afford the train fare. I actually really enjoyed attending Scottish football. When I lived in Carlisle we would far more often head north to a game than stick with Carlisle United. Most (all?) fans accept that the gruesome twosome dominate but then enjoy their own rivalries and in-game passions. There's no way anybody could create a team in Scotland to rival Celtic now. They're a global brand with 60k attendances. I doubt most people reading this thread could confidently name all the other teams in their division - and none of them will post higher than 15k averages this year.
