  1. Normally we wold expect him to end up at Toronto, but on this occasion.....
  2. Now, that is NOT true and a slur! While they not think much/ever about supporters or what is best for the game, they spend a lot of time thinking about people: specifically THEIR lunch, THEIR salary, THEIR expense account, THEIR fact finding trips to New York/Toronto/LA/Dubai/Hong Kong, and now they have hired a new PR team - we will realise all the hard work they do for little reward - because they love rugby ( some one will have to tell them at some point this isn't union - Big Nigel has them all convinced and given them all a "RFU" scarf before he went.
  3. Can I have some of what you are on? 6 SL games live over 3 days and a couple more Championship games on a Sunday! Do you think you are RU?😏
  4. So you chose to call me a liar on polling done by Lord Ashcroft? The Conservative peer who Labour have spent 4 years proclaiming his polling figures are statistically wrong and he is a Tory mouth piece - yet here I am being called a liar based on his poll! That said you have proven my comment correct! 65% of the poll you quote does not want a United Ireland in the next 5 years! ( 56 plus 9) and that is only the response in the Republic Of Ireland! Polls are set up to make the result you want. A major academic study published in the Irish Times and repeated in the Belfast Telegraph last week predicts that the standard of living would reduce by 15% if a United Ireland would happen, and may never recover to current levels. The original Irish Times article ( based on an academic study by Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University) is here https://www.irishtimes.com/business/economy/united-ireland-would-see-living-standards-in-republic-fall-by-15-1.3629748 which may be behind a paywall or an summary below on the Belfast Telegraph here: https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/republic-of-ireland/united-ireland-would-permanently-reduce-living-standards-of-those-in-republic-37319447.html Knowing that the GFA (Good Friday Agreement - for those wanting a say but not sure what they are talking about) requires a separate referendum and a majority in both for a United Ireland - having been told how much it would cost those in the Republic of Ireland, how do you think that would affect the poll quoted above showing 9% in favour of reunification ( the academic piece showing a 15% drop in living standards came after that poll)? Back to you using Lord Ashcroft polls to call me a liar: I can show various polls and articles and academic studies to show where my figure came from: eg https://www.qub.ac.uk/sites/brexitni/BrexitandtheBorder/Report/Filetoupload,820734,en.pdf or recently http://www.thejournal.ie/united-ireland-poll-3-4059433-Jun2018/ who omitted to ask those in Southern Ireland their opinion! You use Lord Ashcroft who numerous people on this forum ( including some who liked your post) decried as nothing more than a Tory Fake News Monger as your evidence that I make stuff up and lie! You need to catch a grip and stop believing the bumph some others on here are feeding you!
  5. So when I said remind me of the lies, you didn't provide any quotes. All you did was throw some more FAKE NEWS rants! Defend your point and allow some scrutiny/discussion or accept you are a parody of Donald Trump; shouting FAKE NEWS from behind a key board, hoping some will believe you!
  6. Someone who knows he is wrong stops the discussion and blocks people - Donald Trump!
  7. From the top of your head you believe I was mistaken/incorrect in those posts. Please quote the posts you believe I was incorrect in and I will happily try and defend them - I may be incorrect and happy to be corrected, but shouting FAKE news with a lot of I "believe you said" hoping that the opinion sticks is Trumpism at its best. Lets pick the middle one on your list - Polling for Irish reunification ( NI doesn't have to the reunited). What have I said and what facts do you have to show I am incorrect?
  8. Another Trump tactic - accuse me of making things up, yet offer no evidence for your claim. If you are going to accuse me of making stuff up at least quote what you think you refer to0. Otherwise you are just shouting "FAKE NEWS" and your buddies think you are right.
  9. 40 years of being taken advantage off will also do that! Price check goods in the USA against same products in the UK (allowing for VAT etc) and you see a 20-40% price differential.
  10. I never said nor do I think that Labour is anti-sematic/racist. Some of them are, but as I commented a few years ago, I personally have not met any people like that in the Labour Party but I realise some are. ( as a mod you can look back several years ago when I and John Drake had a conversation and agreed ) Yet again though you are happy to call Tories racist! No caveat, just all the 17 million who voted Conservative are racist! That statement is as pathetic as me saying all 16m who vote labour are uneducated, benefit junkies! I really expected more of you, but maybe I was wrong and it is not a discussion you moderate, it is am extreme left agenda?
  11. My point being where is that a DUP bribe as opposed to extra spending for all in NI? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-40402184 The DUP don't even have control of the money!
  12. seriously? You are asking me to prove an historical accepted statement? Unbelievable!
  13. Spoken by someone who has never been to a CLP outside London and actually listened to what people mean rather than what they say,
  14. WOW - there is a sweeping statement! Right up there with it is obvious Labour is anti-Semitic and their supporters don't seem to care! ckn - hope you are going to like that as well or are you part of the problem - not the solution?
