  1. Hi, This might be of interest: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2009/feb/02/forgotten-story-of-white-west-indian-cricket
  2. The problem there is supply and demand. If you cut off access to Spain there are suddenly thousands of fewer places available to British holiday makers. It make it a year round school holiday for the rest of Europe.
  3. And in 1997 it was 30%. It won't take Charles long to hit those lows, even without killing off Kate
  4. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35932020 Johnny King. You only have to look at Tranmere's fall to see what a good job he did.
  5. I would guess in the sense that the four SL middle eight clubs have a cap of super league proportions whilst the Championship clubs have a championship sized one but they then play on a "level" playing field. Also the super league players have been in a much tougher competition prior to the start of the middle eights so are possibly more prepared for the step down in competition than the step up the champ clubs face.
  6. There's only 66 qualifying tournaments per season so that's unlikely to happen.
  7. Good question. I think what really got me though was someone on Facebook had put Happy International Women's Day and a picture of the women from Sex and The City.
  8. It's International Women's Day today, and I thought that the idea of it was to point out areas where women are still struggling for equality, particularly in areas of the world such as Saudi where women's rights are pretty horrendous. So it's essentially a day for informing where change needs to come and remembering pioneers who brought forward the cause of women's rights. Why then is the internet full of people wishing each other Happy International Women's Day? We don't say Happy Holocaust Remembrance Day.
  9. Missed this from last week. Most famous for Rocky, but I remember him in Stir Crazy http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-35639248
  10. Such a versatile actor. Was a real menacing bully in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.
  11. It's interesting that the Zika virus is being blamed for all of these issues without any concrete proof, whilst all of the banned pesticides that are being used in these areas of Brazil get more of a free ride. If only Iraq had mosquitoes the US could have blamed them for all those depleted uranium babies after the war. I'll get my tin foil hat and coat.
  12. The English Civil War resulted in the deaths of nearly 4% of the population at the time. I know next to nothing about it, compared to the Tudors and Stuarts. Why is this? Because the ruling classes lost. Which is the same for Texans. I'm sure if you asked students in the Northern states they'd know a lot more about the civil war.
  13. I'm sure you could do the same thing with English kids around the civil war. And I'd bet many wouldn't even know which century it was in. I'd struggle to get within fifty years if I'm honest.
  14. I can. They are. Unless there's a few quid in it for them.
