    • The Chairman Mao resembling, Queen hating, threat to Britain, Labour Party thread
      Thanks for the recommendation, I've just finished watching it. Very interesting! I do enjoy a bit of war-gaming.  Now I see why my question didn't make a whole lot of sense. I was trying to drive at 'if we didn't have Trident, we wouldn't be a target' but we were a target for our conventional military actions, so my point was moot.   I see your point - the Russians seemed very contrite, so maybe they wouldn't have fired the ICBM's if the Americans hadn't hit back, and then Trident would have worked as a deterrent (sort of, although not really, because basically an entire land war was already in progress before it got to that stage).  I don't know if it changed my mind. The revelation that most wouldn't authorise a retaliatory attack on population centres rather removed Trident's 'second strike' capability as a reason for supporting it, and the film rather adequately demonstrated that Britain's nuclear status, combined with its very small amount of firepower and total lack of influence on Washington, makes us a target but without much corresponding influence.  The other, rather more urgent feeling I had watching it was just how dumb it was for George W Bush to push for admitting Ukraine and Georgia into NATO, and how imperative it is that we stop any further NATO expansion, forever.  Good programme though!
    • What do you drive?
      Next car will probably be And to go with it, for family hauling, etc.: And then, with any luck: (the plug-in hybrid should be available by then)
    • The Rémi Garde thread
      I agree, good post. Sadly, I got the distinct impression after we signed ZERO players in the last transfer window and hearing Remi's comments, that things he was promised on taking the job have not happened. I really hope the board don't screw this up, by pissing him off so much that he quits.
    • Gabby Agbonlahor
      Probably time to put the glass pipe away then...
    • Adama Traore
      I'd play him down the middle playing off another forward. With his pace, he could destroy teams with the right support team, by getting in behind them.
    • Manchester United
      Just watched Life of Ryan on Netflix. Interesting viewing...Giggs is a likable guy, a bit of a head in the clouds type character that I can't help but root for as a manager. I think he might be a bit of a soft touch though as a manager of top pros.

    • Leicester City
      Ah, last day of the season - Chelsea vs Leicester. How amazing would that be if Ranieri returned to Stamford Bridge to lift the title for Leicester.
