    where was prince philip going?

    That may be so, and I often face the same on my commute. It can be a nightmare but it is advisable to wear sunglasses in such situations and to keep your windscreen clean both inside and out. Regardless the Duke was pulling out of a junction out of a road he knew very well.

    The 'dazzled by winter sunshine line' has been mentioned various times on tonight's news. The Highway Code is quite clear on this: 93. Slow down, and if necessary stop, if you are dazzled by bright sunlight. http://www.highwaycodeuk.co.uk/uploads/3/2/9/2/3292309/the-official-highway-code-with-annexes-uk-en-12-04.pdf

    Who needs enemies?

    That was more my take on it too.

    He said that 7 years ago. Since then they have the new North Stand and all the additional income streams that entails. They also more importantly get well over £600,000 extra in TV money.
  5. If you can't build property on it there's no real estate value so although it will still cost it's probably as affordable a site as anywhere in London.

    Have I missed the bit where I said he did? I even quoted the article which said it if you cared to look. It is the excuse given by the Daily Mail. If the boot was on the other foot and the cars swapped I'm sure the tone of the Daily Mail's illustration would have been different.

    For us mere plebs being dazzled by winter sunshine would be no excuse for pulling out in front of an oncoming car.

    Yes that's certainly the downside.

    A feel good factor is often hard to quantify but it is certainly very beneficial and creates a real momentum.

    Just done my weights too at lunch time. Working from home is great for fitness!
  11. Exactly. And in one foul swoop the analogy has been shifted from comparing PNG to Cumbria and East Yorkshire to now the biggest club in the UK in terms of turnover. If comparing PNG to Cumbria wasn't far fetched enough comparing it to Leeds, the largest centre outside London for financial and business services, certainly is.
  12. The NRL operates on a completely different level to the game in the UK and I think analogies between PNG and Cumbria or East Yorkshire are pretty pointless. This is especially so when the fundamental problems and challenged that exist in PNG simply do not exist in the UK.

    Well weighed myself this morning after 5 days and have lost 4lb. That isn't even any strict dieting as such, just sticking to my 3 main meals and cutting out chocolate, biscuits etc as well as bread. Disclaimer I did have 4 slices yesterday and a Snickers but that is still better than a normal 'old' day! Plus training in Bob's gym too.
  14. Indeed. Many of the chief architects, on both sides, were far too clever to actually get convicted of terrorism. Gerry Adams was never convicted and was also acquitted of IRA membership for instance. I don't think anyone doubts what he has been involved in though. It is a fact that DUP members have been convicted of unlawful assembly, illegal demonstration and public order offences: Like Peter Robinson and the Invasion of Clontibret (where a deal saw many charges dropped and saved his career): https://www.thejournal.ie/peter-robinson-clontibret-3189075-Jan2017/ Then of course we have things like the Third Force, founded by Paisley: And the Ulster Resistance, founded by DUP members of Paisley, Peter Robinson and Ivan Foster. Sammy Wilson was also involved too: https://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/no-dup-apology-for-ulster-resistance-despite-gun-running-leading-to-murders-1-7427864 There are also stacks more shadowy events, whether that is events around the Ulster General Strike or the Anglo Irish Agreement or the multitude of events in between. I think most reasonable people would think of these activities as falling under the definition of terrorism.
  15. Is this site not a 44 acre site? There is plenty of room for both an athletics stadium, which could also be used as a training facility and have community use, and a dedicated RL ground. This is pretty similar to what Wigan will now be doing with Robin Park with the DW next door. If they are serious about taking over and developing the site they could make it a real sports hub.
