Just finished season one of sneaky Pete on amazon prime, quite enjoyable, the main character in it is quite good and the story line decent. There’s a second season but dunno if it’ll be anywhere near as good but I’ll prob give it a go anyway

Second season is pretty  poor.

Anyone else have to Google USP  ;D



Yes, and I'm still not sure what the United States Pharmacopeia has to do with anything.

Great stuff.  Lovely clip at the end there, really ties it all back together.

If the first response to anything is "we'll pack our defences".....
How the Hell are we ever to change that mindset?

I don't think there's anything wrong with packing defences, but if we want that to stop, then surely a rule that disallows that, whatever it might look like, is the starting point?

MP's salaries have gone up from 65,000(2010) to 77,000(2018)...... how's that for austerity?
It never ceases to amaze me that the general public in the UK roll over and take it.....same in Ireland.....whereas in France there are multiple demonstrations. The sooner people realise that the French way is the only way we are going to see change the better.

That’s not a very high salary. Most 23 year olds on their first job in top cities in US would make that. But they work hard unlike the French who like their short working weeks. The French way will never work - just results in a stagnant economy based on protectionism. They have been rioting for decades and things just getting worse.

You wouldn't happen to have a link for that claim about 23 year Olds by any chance? I teach 21-22 year Olds in college in New York ,  and that is not what I hear back from them.

DUP wheeling out the artillery today.

Ian Paisley junior (just back after his suspension): Asks Karen Bradley has she considered the threat of loyalist violence. Also wants to build the bridge to Scotland.
Sammy Wilson: The business community groups are 'puppets for the government'.
Jim Shannon: Says to karen Bradley that government are going to get a rude awakening

Sure what use is that without digging a moat around the six counties?

Cheers lads. Hadn't heard of the relegation in it until yesterday.

Are there any negative consequences to this 'relegation', or does it only mean we'll play some competitive matches emm.. glorified friendlies against teams more at our standard?

Yep.

In 2013, the Israeli government revealed that it would also recruit “covert units” however. These would be staffed by a mixture of international supporters and domestic students, whose high intelligence, low income and familiarity with social media make them generally well suited to professional trolling. “We need a unified effort to explain why we have a legal right to be here in Israel,” the Knesset member Dov Lipman told the Jerusalem Post. “That is key to defeat the movements pushing to boycott, divest and sanction Israel.” Those who signed up would get quick access to government information, and leaders of student groups would also be awarded scholarships.

Abuse is ok as long as it's directed at Fenians😡


Seriously though - I understand anti-Irish abuse is a crime in the UK. Surely the perpetrators should be easily identifiable in a soccer stadium and dealt with appropriately?

Well let's consider this.....John Taylor calls Varadkar.....'typical Indian'.....nothing happens
Sponsored burning of effigies and anything remotely Nationalist every year.....nothing happens
Sectarian abuse and death threats to McClean and Lennon.....nothing happens
Don't forget that up until recently the Head of State couldn't marry a Catholic.....they can now....but they themselves can't be a Catholic........now imagine if instead of Catholic it was Jew or Protestant or Muslim. You couldn't make it up but now you know why the Tories and DUP are made for each other.

I don't think the UK monarch could be Jewish or Muslim, or anything other than Church of England.  The monarch is head of the Church of England, so presumably has to be part of that religion in order to be able to function in that capacity.  I don't think that particular policy is anti-Catholic as such.  Any more than saying that a Presbyterian couldn't be pope.

Up until relatively recently...2011 I think....the head of state could NOT marry a Catholic......if that's not anti- Catholic then I don't know what is in your world.

Did I say that wasn't anti-Catholic?
