    I do Believe it's Jacks birthday today. The only way I know is because in August last year my mother bought me Villa's shirt with Grealish on the back. That shirt would be the last thing she got me because she passed away on this day last year from a long fought battle with cancer. I've always found it's strange as well as special what my mother did for me as its the one and only footy shirt she ever got me but she knew I was the happiest lad on earth at the time. When she did pass away it was some days later I had checked Jacks twitter to see the happy birthday on the 10th. What I find strange is how did she pick a players name who on the very day she would leave us it was his birthday, what are the chances of that happening, I bet next to none. So for me as much as it's as much Jacks birthday it's also a day he shares with my mum and it's a rememberance day, it's a very special day. So to you MUM I love you and to you Jack have a very wonderful day.

    If this works out Steve Bruce is going to have sleepless nights thinking about how he didn't think of this first.

    I'm no Corbyn fan, by a very, very, long way, but he (or his advisors) got this one spot on. Why help Johnson out of a self imposed hole, by agreeing to timing of an election that would both free Johnson and harm Corbyn, when he can wait a couple of week longer and have the election, but further harm Johnson's prospects and enhance his own. He'll still lose, mind, but everyone but the reckless tories will benefit. It's the role and duty of the opposition to oppose, not to lie supine while the government wrecks the country.

    Raheem Sterling has worked so hard on his game, always improving under Pep. Think there is a good argument that he is right up there as one of the best in the world now

    I think that when things come to a climax, Johnson will be condomned to the dustbin of history.

    He's insisting he resigned. Either way, can't help but be overjoyed to see him gone. A dyed in the wool warmonger. Let's see who's worse that Trump can dig up.

    Telford is a **** shit hole and the only good thing about it is nothing, I can't think of a good thing about it. Everyone who lives there is scum and deserves bumming/shooting/hammering on the face. I hope a pelican/giraffe hybrid does a poo on your houses. Sometimes at night time when everyone is asleep I go to telford to spit at it and throw litter on it. I've kicked 4 bins over and moved 2 trolleys out of the Asda car park so they can't be used. I put a cone in front of the hospital doors so people can't go in, and Dr's cannot come out, to speed up the death of telfords people and I played music in my car radio at unsociable hours a bit too loud. haha telford, **** you.

    They effectively did that. They said that they wouldn't vote for the motion but that they are very much prepared and keen to have a general election once (they believe) no deal has been avoided on the 31st October, either by a deal being brought back by the PM and voted upon by Parliament or the extension required by the Act which received Royal Assent having been sought (and granted). '2' is a nonsense. Firstly, it's unlikely to be the case - the current PM is an inveterate liar and has lied over and over and over again. He still appears to be electable with certain groups of people. Secondly, if the point of refusing to agree to an election date is so as to prevent a no deal on 31st October then it would be utterly stupid to gamble that possibility on some loose idea of a future political and electoral jeopardy to be felt by those that may lie. Just restating this claim that you made earlier about 'that's the Tories over, &c.' doesn't make it any better than the first time you put it forward. The facts of the matter are that the Government twice moved specific motions for an early election that would have had that election being called on specific terms, i..e. the timing would be at the behest of the PM. There is no room for maneouvre on that.

    He always used to get into good positions but his decision making and finishing was atrocious. Under Pep his awareness seems to have increased ten-fold and he’s clinical, he’s up there for sure.

    The "American Conservative" had a piece yesterday saying Bolton was so distrusted, he wasn't allowed to see plans on Afghanistan unsupervised. Good riddance. A vile, deranged, extremely dangerous little man.

    Different strokes... To me, Corbyn was indeed getting hugely barracked by the tories - pretty disgracefully so. But he managed to come across, after the first 45 seconds or so as pretty good - he made good points, grounded in reality and mixed in with the more partisan stuff. Blackford afterwards was calmer, but didn't really hit home and wandered off into very SNP (as you'd expect) "Scotland" this that and tho other. Fair enough to an extent, but it was in the UK parliament. Johnson was dreadful. He re-used his joke from last week, and offered basically no defence of his position of PM of the UK doing that he's done. We know much of what he said was simply false. I guess we all see it differently

    I think it's more to do with your views than explicitly stating you support the Conservatives. I've probably missed something, but it seems to me like when someone is really pushing you to criticise Boris (or his government) you go to great lengths to avoid doing it apart from saying you don't support everything they do. This might be because of your Brexit position and being wary of undermining it, but I struggle to believe anyone who doesn't loudly denounce (not just ignore) Boris' tricks to try and get his way with no deal can be anything but a Conservative. I'd like to think a 'considered' Leave voter would at least rally against this as they'd be concerned for the long term constitutional precedents, whereas your average Conservative voter wouldn't give a toss.

    Jeremy Corbyn is ten times the statesman and a hundred times the man Boris Johnson will ever be. I would love to see him as P.M.

    I saw that on the telly last night. I (genuinely) thought Corbyn was pretty good. He gave the floppy Johnson a stiff talking to.

    I am gonna withhold judgement. I am no MM fan but he is right this is a free experiment for all of us. If it works out then Conor is more valuable to us (and he is already valuable) as he can now cover another position. I doubt it will work of course, but MM is experimenting for us and Conor seems happy so lets give it a go.

    This is a myth, the vast majority of council services are put out to tender and the cheapest quote wins. The inefficiency comes from accepting the cheapest quote (which they pretty much have to by law), which then gets you the shittiest job done. You can blame a certain Mrs Thatcher for that, she introduced "competitive tendering"

    Sad that he's going but also brilliant timing. 1. Gets to go full "no **** given" for the crucial votes in October 2. Ensures that if no GE happens before October 31st the throbbers in Johnsons government won't get to choose his successor.
