    Clubs' Websites

    For an amateur club in the fifth tier, St Albans Centurions has an excellent site. https://stalbanscenturions.weebly.com/
  2. From the BBC website … Conservative MP Anne Marie Morris told BBC News she believed enough Tory MPs had now submitted letters of no-confidence in the prime minister to trigger a leadership contest.'..... to be continued?
  3. I see Lord Hain is keeping his high profile. Last week the 'naming' in parliament, this week coming out with this on the BBC regarding the police probe into anti-Semitism in the labour party. "I am very disturbed by the investigation, because I think it highlights what has been a curse in the Labour party. That's the sort of thing you expect from fascists and racists and anti-Semites, you don't expect it from members of the Labour party. If the party leader had been tough enough in stamping it out, this particular investigation would ever have occurred." I take it he's not a fan of Jeremy?

    Rant thread

    This morning on BBC news. The presenter, Naga Munchety, coming to the end of the news bit said " And now over to the weather forecast. Will it be cold enough to build a snowman ….. er snowoman …. I mean snow person" Cut to the weather presenter who said "I think I'd stop digging that hole now." Have we really come to the point where we have to be gender neutral, even about snowmen.

    Our new position in the EU

    I wasn't being pro or con here, just stating something I heard that was a very good reflection on the UK. I'm sure the remainers will say 'It will all collapse when we leave', whilst the leavers will say 'We will do even better when we have left." Who knows.?

    Our new position in the EU

    Whilst channel hopping, on one of the money/business channels on Sky (Bloomberg?) a reporter was talking about Brexit and what the future might hold for big tech companies, and he said something along the line of 'did you know' that in the last 2 years the UK have created more ‘unicorns’ - $1bn tech companies, than France, Germany, Sweden & Holland combined and that 30% of all worldwide 'unicorns' are in the UK with another 54 potentially currently valued just under $1bn. No matter what your view on Brexit, that's pretty good going for the UK.
  7. On the main rugby site there is a Topic about Hemel Stags pulling out of League 1 next season. What caught my eye was - Hemel have already submitted an expression of interest in joining the tier four Southern Conference competition that will be launched in the spring of 2019 – one of 14 expressions that have already been received.

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    Yes, says on the RFL site - "They have already submitted an expression of interest in joining the tier four Southern Conference competition that will be launched in the spring of 2019 – one of 14 expressions that have already been received. At this stage there are no plans for them to be replaced in Betfred League 1 in 2019, meaning the fixture list is being drawn up for an 11-team competition."
  9. Is it a secret? When will we know who have expressed an interest?

    Middle East thread

    Very grizzly report on BBC News Channel this morning, talk of cutting off fingers, torture, screams echoing around the consulate then a poison being injected. The way it was reported didn't seem like speculation either. And the head of the consulate has flown back to Saudi in a private jet during the night.

    Our new position in the EU

    Just a bit on the news, apparently 60% of Italians said they would vote to leave the EU if given a referendum.

    Oddest Thing

    Whatever you do, don't watch this film ….😉
  13. Haven't watched much about this conference, however I did see an interview with Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Scottish Tory party and I must be honest, she came over very well. An articulate and pleasant woman who answered all the questions put to her - a direct opposite to the current Tory leader. Surely the party bigwigs must be considering her for the future … even though she says she doesn't want the job.
  14. Is there anywhere on the interweb that you can watch the Donny - Town game ?
