General discussion / Re: snooker world championship

I watched the last 4 or 5 frames myself (first snooker I've watched in a long time), I said to the wife as we were watching, I'm torn here as Higgins is a good Celtic man, Allen is a bit of a hateful hoor with some very unlikeable politics. Wasn't the greatest snooker but it was tense & exciting.

Buffering on the ITV Hub is fairly good for a mainstreamish adult comedy

Supply chains have went N/S very quickly instead of E/W, think that's sent a few alarms off in Sovereignty HQ

There's nothing to fear because it's mostly fanciful, but NI's lot will improve because of UK grandstanding, unless they go full nuclear on A16, which I doubt they will.

There's his actual speech, I read it (a 10-15 min read) after reading the initial Twitter over reaction.  There's nothing in it that should or would frighten the EU, it will ultimately work out well for us in the North.

Heavyweight division going to be very interesting for a couple of years. Dillian Whyte (assuming he wins his end of month bout) waiting in the wings for Fury, a very dangerous customer.

Reading bits and pieces about AJ and I see red flags. Days after his defeat he was saying he's learned his lesson from first Usyk fight, I don't see how??? The only way I see him winning the rematch is if he comes back a stone plus heavier and clobbers him, there's no parallel universe anywhere where he outboxes Usyk. Now he's supposedly back in training for the rematch earmarked for Spring - unless that's PR it seems way too early, he's hardly comedown of his defeat ffs. There's a real whiff of panic imo.

I know. Calling Starmer a Neoliberal just seems pointless nonsense. He's in the Labour Party (& not any of the others) for a reason - because he believes in their values, Labour's values, not Corbyn's values.

Large parts of left wing Labour are insane if Twitter is anything to go by.

Starmer has to get back the New Labour voters that propelled Blair to victory if he wants to win a GE, It is pretty much Tory light, so the path he's taking is understandable,  but he doesn't have the charisma Blair had nor  does he have an equally talented Brown in the background helping him strategise. Labour are doomed for a long time. Burnham & Khan will likely let Starmer do some reforming, come back after the next Election defeat and go for the leadership. Labour ideally need David Milliband to return from the US, not likely to happen tho.

Labour will be hammered again, doesn't matter who is in charge or what version of Labour is running. Tory's have the media in their corner. System is bucked

You've a point alright with the media and everything in the last election in the UK was looked at through the prism of Brexit which Corbyn and indeed Starmer were weak on and dithery.
Corbyn was portrayed as a "terrorist" supporting, anti-Semitic, commie and you can even hear Boris rabbiting on in a similar vein yesterday yet overlook the misogyny, anti Muslim, pocket lining cronyism of the Tory's.

Has Starmer the wherewithal to overcome this, I don't think so.

Starmer is a Tory mole, right out of the MI5 playbook.

Corbyn was a threat to the establishment, they eviscerated him on the grounds that he was a threat to the homogeneity of the establishment and status quo

Starmer offers no such threat, the Torys will do all they can to keep him in position for years

Someone said a few posts back that David Miliband needs to come back into the fray... what a sliding doors moment that was for British politics when his brother stabbed him in the back to take the leadership, unfortunately Ed was never going to succeed being something of a Milhouse Van Houten clone

Starmer is a neoliberal dog in the manger. His job is to prevent economic change.

Seafoid you've been blathering on about Neoliberalism for years like it's some sort of insult, it's the Economic model of the EU & Western world in general.

5 points ahead of Labour in a Britain Elects survey today, unbelievable.

See the French threatening to cut power supplies to GB over fishing rights dispute, no doubt it's bluster and the Brexit w**ks would have a field day if it did happen, but I'd love to see it.

I wonder does Unionism look on atm and see the madness of GB and at least see SOME benefits of AI connections & integration, hopefully they are getting their eyes opened to the cretins & charlatans running the UK.

Did it last night and it works 100% thanks benny!

So apparently scanning your NI Covid cert into the Irish App isnít actually a bona fide EU COVID cert.

Has anyone had any luck with the new portal? I managed to get my QR code accepted this morning but havenít received anything back as yet and sounds like people are having bother uploading their QR code all day.
I've a brother on holiday in Italy, says its been scanned loads of times, working fine.

I suspect the Ange out chat is the usual Social media shite, I would doubt there's talk of change among the power brokers - look at how long Lennon got ffs and getting a replacement in. I think there's potential there.

Initial promise fading quickly. Celtic are easily played by teams with a bit of quality (& Leverkeusen are a cut above), just push up and go man to man and if Celtic can't get out then it's a defensive shambles waiting to happen. Ange is going to have to get real, BL aren't Raith Rovers, set up and play accordingly. First goal was just bad luck gone wrong but it hasn't been good since.
