1 - Joggers running on the road beside the pavement.

2 - Joggers running along country roads with no pavements with headphones on.

People who use Anerican terms.

Where's the American terms in there?
Pavement you tool

The American term is sidewalk, the Irish/British term is pavement.

The Irish term is footpath. Them crumby yanks use the word pavement for the street

And the Irish use the term footpath or pavement for the bit beside the street that you walk on.

Never heard pavement used in Tyrone.

"Clogher Valley SDLP Councillor Sharon McAleer has welcomed the decision of Transport NI to upgrade pavements in Ballygawley which will serve to benefit a young wheelchair user in the area."

Why would I need to defend a Conservative Supreme Court?

Whoever wins the election gets to decide who’s on the court

I wouldn’t expect you to defend a Liberal court if Hillary had won nor would I expect my Liberal friends to Be wringing their hands or gnashing their teeth either.

Elections have consequences and after Obama’s 2 picks having a Republican pick 2/3 is no harm

I think it is a good thing if there is a balance on the court, but based on how disgracefully the Democrats behaved over Kavanaugh I think it would be great Karma if Trump stuck another conservative on the court. They now deserve to be railroaded in my opinion, because it’s clear they will stop at absolutely nothing to gain and hold power (exactly like the Republicans)



Did you think that the Republicans behaved disgracefully over Merrick Garland?

Should have established a cross-party committee that performed the negotiations, with numerous visits back to the westminster with indicative votes on key issues to ensure they were following consensus on negotiation.

If she did that, the hardline Tory Brexiteers would have made her life hell.

What I’d like to know is this.

If she was appointed Tory leader / PM under the premise that she would commit to delivering the people’s will of Brexit, then what is it she should have done differently?

Try to leave personal impressions out of it. If you’ve got nothing to negotiate with, you either take your beating, or you buy enough time until you get something to negotiate with (or at the very least, you’re given something just to go away).

I don't like the woman but she was stuffed before she started. How can she win with this mess.

Farage shouldn't be allowed near our tvs. Absolute cretin who robbed money from the eu when it suited him.

But clearly too stupid to realise that she was stuffed.

Or so arrogant that she believed that she could magically unstuff herself.

Trent out for 4 weeks and Wijnaldum very doubtful for Palace.

Going to stretch the squad! At least Matip is back, although it usually takes him a few games to get up to speed.
So either Milner or Fabinho to right back v Palace, with the other in midfield.
Zaha will be up against whichever one is RB   ???

Poor decision to let Clyne go!
Sky Sports saying TAA only out for 2 weeks.
Gomez fit again also.

"Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is likely to be out for at least two weeks with a knee injury, Sky Sports News understands."

So you also hate Bill Gates, a man who has donated his $65bn fortune to good causes.

Bill Gates is the largest shareholder of Monsanto stock.

Armagh made the All Ireland quarter finals in 2017 and kept Roscommon close for most of the game in the 4th round in 2018 so making the Super 8s would not be a total shock depending on the draw they get.

Doing well in the Super 8s is a different matter.

So EasyTiger.....you’re telling me that if the number 2 person at Facebook held secret meetings with Trump, shared “research” with him before the election and said that she desperately wanted him to win, you’d be perfectly fine with that?  Just checkin
So Whitey, you're telling me that if an amoral sociopath engaged in a conspiracy with a geopolitical foe/right wing dictatorship, influenced by both financial and sexual kompromat, to win an election, by subverting social media platforms to carry micro-targeted messages to malleable voters, and in the process bringing down or at least actively trying to destroy, in no particular order, the post war western political order, NATO, modern journalism, pluralism, civility, minority groups (including African-Americans, Jewish people and the LGBTQ community), the American constitution, and of course, the planet itself, you'd be perfectly fine with that?

Just checkin.

Man, it must feel good to own the libs.

If that is what the Mueller investigation finds then I’m all for prosecuting those responsible to the fullest extent of the law.......nice deflection by the way

Oh, I learnt from the best. Can't wait for your deflections tonight when your fearless leader tries to declare a national emergency to build his wall. Imagine - a declaration of a non-existent emergency in order to facilitate the building of an imaginary solution to an immigration crisis when immigration at the Mexican border has been at a net deficit for the past two years.

Believe what you want.

Well for one I am not a Trump supporter, though I do support a handful of his ideas

Secondly, I have never advocated building a wall and think it is a ridiculous waste of time and money

Who did you vote for in the 2016 presidential election?

 Jürgen Klopp confirmed Dejan Lovren sustained a hamstring injury during Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup on Monday night.

The centre-back was forced from the field after just six minutes of the third-round encounter at Molineux, with the Reds needing to call upon 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever to replace him.

Klopp told his post-match press conference: “[It is his] hamstring, is what I heard - without any signs before. I asked everybody, no signs, nothing, just out of the blue, so that’s the decision you have to make.

“I am not sure what you all would have said if immediately from the beginning if our centre-half situation was Fabinho and Ki-Jana; then probably a few very smart people would tell me that I don’t respect the competition or whatever.

“So, we tried to do all the things [we could]. Of course, on the other hand it doesn’t make sense to bring in a 16-year-old boy from the start. You don’t bring him, you wait until he is completely ready, but he did well. He came on and did well. That’s how it sometimes starts - when you are really needed then it is only about if you are good enough and not how old you are.

“He did well, so that was all OK. That’s it.”

Asked about the potential length of time Lovren is facing on the sidelines, Klopp replied: “I don’t know in this moment.”

Has anyone stuck with Rebellion? Watched the 1st one. Seems shite. Rest recorded. Mightn't bother. Should I?

2nd episode more shite than 1st, 3rd picked up a bit.

Just discovered this is on Netflix here in the US.

Is is worth investing my valuable couch potato time in it?
