    Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    He can talk to whom he chooses. I wouldn't talk to Umana either, he's not even a has been, he's a never was.

    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    After seeing her speech tonight I can only say she's gone for the nuclear option of pitting herself against almost the whole of Parliament Only one winner there.

    Harold Wilson managed to avoid us being drawn into the US debacle in Vietnam. He was under real pressure at the time but still said no. That's because he wasn't a slimy egotist who wanted to play the " Billy Big Balls " on the world stage.

    What is the most boring job in the world?

    I had another call out years ago at " Premier Brands " in Moreton on the Wirral. Chocolate mixing machine for what used to be coating " Cadbury's " Fingers. These things are like a " Magi mix " only as big as a living room in a house. Wading in chocolate ankle deep soon loses it's attraction. I couldn't stand the smell of chocolate for at least a year after that job.

    On a lighter note a school mate of mine once brought a note to school that said - Dear Mr Milne, Can you excuse our Billy from PE as I am wearing his pumps for work. Signed, Billy's mum.

    A replay was always going to be the outcome. Points need to be earned not given.

    What is the most boring job in the world?

    I was called out to repair the cast iron guard of a surface grinder. The wheel had burst and driven a piece of the guard about as big as a mobile phone out through the corrugated iron roof of the building ! Me and my pal went up on the roof to try and trace the broken piece to repair the guard. The roof was as big as a football pitch but we never did find the broken piece. The operator had a neat cut on his forehead were the piece cut him on it's way out of the building. A lucky guy.

    What is the most boring job in the world?

    On my travels as an engineer I saw some pretty boring jobs. Counting 12" square plastic floor tiles into batches of 40 then putting them in cardboard boxes was about the worst. I was involved with the building of automatic tile counting machines were the women just loaded the tiles into a feed hopper and the machine did the rest. There was nearly a riot because the women didn't want the machines.

    But for Morrison's needing to build a supermarket it's hard to see how both clubs could have kept going. Both were really struggling at the time.

    v Leigh

    Me too but until we've something new to add just re-hashing what we already know gets boring pretty quickly. This is the Hornets v Leigh thread.

    There are jobs and then there are Macjobs. It's like modern apprenticeships, I served 5 year apprenticeship as an Engineer. You can get trained to make coffee in a coffee bar now but it's still called an apprenticeship. Absolutely no comparison.

    Doesn't look like the football club has made many friends in York then ?

    Pitch inspection

    If the forecasts are correct it'll be a quagmire after 90 minutes. There are photos going around of the pitch after Saturday's game that show the pitch was already waterlogged down the main stand side. There have been serious problems with the ground for the last few years especially in the area in front of the main stand. Football fans will recall the pitch was completely re-laid around this time last year for the Rochdale v Spurs FA Cup Tie and it's now back to square one. The previous groundsman got fired for cocking up the pitch just before this.
