    If Mogg wins, I’m moving to live at the Black Country Living Museum so I can acclimatise to our future.

    That's a reading which seems at odds with circumstances. Firstly, I'm pretty sure that the GFA included dismantling the various security infrastructure (including border check etc.). Secondly, pure WTO terms would require a hard border to the UK. Also Absence from the CU and SM would require the EU to put up a hard border with the UK. Thirdly, no one on the Island of Ireland (well not no-one, but ykwIm) wants or will accept a hard border. Fourthly, as we've done to death, you cannot have control over immigration and no hard border between the UK and the EU. It has been fundamentally impossible to have both these things. So everything is loaded against having a hard border. Yet May's demands for control of immigration and the nutter hard Brexit lot desire for "just leave" must impose a hard border by its nature (the hard leave). Finally, Ireland has a veto. They do not accept a hard border. They can kill any agreement. Oh and the backstop - it's not made in London, it's an essential part of the EU protecting itself, in that if we leave the CU and SM we cannot have the benefits of them, so there needs to be something in place (which doesn't exist) to protect the integrity of the CU and SM, or N.I (or the whole UK) has to stay in them. Why anyone's making a fuss over something so blindingly obvious, and which has been since before the vote, is quite beyond comprehension.

    Sorry, these things have hardly featured in the "debate". I'm sure no-one has any strong views on them, from the Brexit supporting camps.

    I fall in the middle of your optimism, and @villalad21 pessimism. I'm cautiously optimistic, and realistic. As I genuinely feel people are hyping themselves up for bitter disappointment if things don't go as they think it should. Difference is I am more confident in our overall long term future in the hands of our new owners/manager so am less panicky and won't lose it if it goes a bit tits up. Been there too many times, I'm currently ok with just enjoying the ride. However we simply must remember where we are coming from and try to stay grounded. I could change my tune completely in a few weeks based on results and table.

    Because Brexit is so incredibly harmful, that cancelling it is a big enough deal that many would cross party lines to support a party that would cancel it.

    Pretty much this. What, 4 months ago we were going bust, Jack was leaving, We couldn’t keep JT and Sam Johnston, the owner had disappeared from view and all was bleak. We faced a year or more of dirge football and little hope. Look at us all now. Enjoying goals and games and the style and looking forwards and upward.

    He's called fans 'mad', 'unintelligent' and 'hysteric' for criticizing him. We haven't had a manager since maybe O'Leary who took swipes at the fans before yet people are painting Bruce as the victim when he's had an easier ride from the fans than every single manager we've had since MON. Compare that to how Alex McLeish handled the absolute dogs abuse hurled his way: After the infamous Bolton game. His comments before a publicly proposed fans' protest. An actual nice guy, and not an egoist who's alright when things are okay but turns nasty when things aren't going his way.

    I’m waiting patiently for that McGinn fella to settle in and finally be of some use.

    I've pretty much lost my interest in football so no checked this site too often, but still very much running. On track to hit 3000k by the end of the year. Ran (or least ran, walked and hiked) 50km at Annapurna 100 race at the end of October. Seriously tough but the views, wow. Next race not until February though:( Watch I use Garmin Forerunner 30. Pretty cheap and does the job for 99.9% of my runs, although the battery isn't enough for the ultras. Shoes are the one thing I spend a lot of money on. I used to think they didn't make a lot of difference but changed my view after getting properly assessed and into the right pair of shoes. Currently Saucony Ride 10 for the road and either Saucony Perrigne 8 or Salomon Elevate XA for the trails. Got a pair of On Cloudflash on the way that I'm seriously excited for as I loved my Cloudventure Peaks until the tread started falling off.

    To add insult to injury apparently Jay Rodriguez has been called up into the next England squad. .. .. .. Apparently Eddie Jones was very impressed with his try against us

    It's hard to make an argument that the Democrat party doesn't exist for exactly the same purpose too in fairness.

    As expected it's mostly horror/sci-fi and that sort of stuff. Not gotten around to watching that many new movies this year so got a bit of catching up to do. Really recommend Roma, saw it when i was in Copenhagen. Think it's out on Netflix soon? Edit: Having just spent the afternoon watching Leave No Trace I'll definitely have that one as a late addition to my list.
