What sort of team will Utd put out on Wed night ? Evens looks gernerous
Yep definitely gonna have a slice of that, surely they’ll beat Basel?

I've had more success with picking both teams to score lately, or over 2.5 goals.. seems a better bet

I think areas with 2 communities with a history of bloodshed are more likely to go postal during an economic crisis. Cyprus and Lebanon blew up in the 70's.  When money is flúirseach grievances can be bought off.

Be like Mad Max, proper bloodshed... stealing oil from next door, food parcels (oh wait thats Limerick) rations!! Be a mad exodus to Louth

I'm glad you find it funny, living where you do.

Funny? I didnt realise you had to find it funny where you live! Happy? yes! funny

If you were raped you’d come out and say it and have that person charged? Would you worry about how other people would think
That really is an incredibly stupid thing to come out with

Is that not what they are doing now? how many rape cases now compared to 20 years ago? people are going to the police and they are being followed up on and charged.. the stigma it seems based on whats happening now show that it is not the major concern..

Rape victims felt in the past that nothing would come of it and felt that there was no point going to police or they actually felt embarrassed and shamed by it all and said nothing... so my post is simple.. you would come out and say it to the police and have them charged.. no?

Incredibly simplistic view.

As has been seen to happen in many rape cases, interpretation of consent can vary and often a victim is tarnished with "well she's notorious for sleeping about so it couldn't have been rape".

The Ched Evans case is one high profile example of when a victim alleged she was raped and the Evans family went to town on her in a PR exercise and ruined her life, so how would that encourage other who have been raped to come forward?

I'm sure its a case by case thing.... Ive already mentioned more people are being heard than before, the more that come out the more people will get charged.. the Chad Evans case is not the norm and you know that, they are the exception, I'd say there are more people raped by non celeberties than celebs, in which case they have less money to have a PR campaign.

So its down to the person thats been raped to do something about it, must be a horrible experience to go through, not to mention the medical examination and questioning by police afterwards and then the court case where your every word is used against you.. but thats the law, its there to protect everyone ... simplistic view? yes but i know a lady that was raped and there was nothing simplistic in her experience and continued trauma afterwards... the more rape victims say nothing the more peolle will think its ok to do it as they will get off with it

Been a right while since I been but my impressions were...

Amazingly beautiful country but the people came off a bit snobby of themselves. Beer wine food all great.

Didnt spend that long in Split but remember the beaches were very crowded there. Beaches generally are scant enough in the entire country despite the length of the coastline its mostly rocky.
You have Doleticain's Place (Roman ruins) there in the middle of the city which is kinda cool still inhabited from the descendants from Roman times.
Split is  a pretty easy jumping off point for the islands as well, I visited Korcula and Mijet. Korcula is pretty nice its got a wee old town nice for walking around and all. Mijet has very little going on but its very beautiful, nice for biking around and its got this old monastery in the middle of a lake, no one there hardly at all. Hvar is another island, more developed and supposed to be nice too.

Went inland to these water falls inland (cant mind what they were called), they were nice but hot and very crowded with alot of Italian and Germans in speedos

Dubrovnik tho is like nothing else, beautiful place, wonderfully preserved(luckily) the walls and old buildings cobble streets, you cant not go, just for a walk and look around very bright tho wear sunglasses.
Also visited Sibinek (nice big cathedral) and Pula in the north with a Roman amphitheater and a random statue of James Joyce.

Thanks for that will certainly pick up on visit to Dubrovnik though i hear it is rammed!!

I've booked an apartment on the island of Ciovo near the town of Trogir, just a week so will be a busy week if I go sightseeing..

Same life expectancy for the south, which had no Brexit

Brexit hasn't the effect yet.
Life expectancy in the south is one year longer for both men and women than in the occupied territories, and is slightly longer for woman than in England.

That’s you sorted then!

Looked at my area and I’ve another (on average) 33 years! But if/when Brexit hits I won’t get another 10!

Would SF be better at looking after working class people than the DUP ? This will be a key determinant of what happens post Brexit imo. 
The UK is in a very dark place right now. Life expectancy will be falling soon. Poorer people can't afford healthy food and the NHS is being starved of money so people are dying earlier.

Private Eye has the life expectancy news.
