  1. If one could bet on these kind of things, that's what I'd have put my money on. He's a UNISON fit. USDAW backed Owen Thingy in the last leadership election, so can see them backing Starmer. Think CWU will go RBL. I'm most interested to see who Unite back. I'm not sure if McCluskey will want to back RBL (not to say they won't), so I'm very quite intrigued to see who they go for.
  2. I always consider Jacques Kallis the best all rounder of my time watching cricket (I'm not old enough to have seen Sobers), but I think Ben Stokes and surpassed him now. Amazing performance again yesterday.
  3. The stat about half the rest of the team being about 5 to 7 years old, when he made his debut made me smile.
  4. Congratulations Dom Sibley on a very well deserved maiden test 100! Yooouuu Beeeaaarrrsss!
  5. I imagine there are probably other songs of hers I'd like, but of the ones I've heard, non have grabbed me like Shake it off did. I've always got time for a brilliant piece of pop music though.
  6. I though the Neil Young choice would prompt you. I recall having a discussion about us going to the same Shakey gig. As for the mixed bag of artists, as much as I know you don't like certain genres of more modern music, I at least know you have an appreciation for song craft (as in said Taylor Swift song. Which incidentally is probably the only song of hers I've ever given the time of day to, cus it's just a brilliant piece of pop music), and the artistry of Kendric, and Gambino. I thing the This is America song and video is the best piece of art of the decade, full stop.
  7. If it makes it easier, I'll accept multiple answers.
  8. As we enter the 2020s, let's have your best things of the 2010s? Favourite album? Favourite song? Favourite film? Favourite TV show? Favourite actor/actress? Favourite gig attended? Biggest news story? Icon of the decade? Villain of the decade? Wild card (tell us something personal you've loved, achieved, had happen to you etc in the 2010s?)
  9. The Mandalorian was superb from start to finish, and baby Yoda is adorable. I have spoken.
  10. TROS was probably my least favourite of the new episodes (on first watch), but I still loved it. Moments in it put me right back to the first time I watched New Hope, and I'm not afraid to say my eyes were moist during the last scene.
  11. Yeah it normally comes, and gets cooked on the bone. I leave that bit up to our Mom though!
  12. In the past few years, we've ditched the turkey, and gone with a rib of beef. Local butchers is tremendous, and always gives us a tremendous cut of meat. There's only 3 of us usually (unless I've got a lass on the go, but try to avoid that this time of year, so I don't have to buy her any presents ), as the numbers have dwindled over the last few years. We used to get a meat hamper, with a turkey, a joint of pork, with sausage, bacon, sausage meat, and a massive pork pie, but it would just go to waste now.
  13. Pah! Just no pleasing some people! Inner 4 year old dAVe80 is absolutely loving Then Mandalorian. Jawas, characters (or similar looking) from Empire and Jedi, Yoda Jr, and a Boba looking dude! If you'd told me I could watch a TV show like this, when I was a kid, my head would have exploded. I have spoken.
  14. The counter argument to that would be pay the lowest earning staff more money, then the execs can earn the wages to compete with the private sector, but I see your point of view. Alas the revolution is thwarted for another day!
  15. We'd be talking about a publically owned service though, rather than a private company, like a football club. It would be hard to enforce it in the private sector, granted. Although the commie in me is screaming privatise the top 100 companies, and make football clubs fan owned, but we'll leave that one for a few years down the line of a Corbyn government!
  16. As an example of what Labour want to do, in term of bridging the gap between bosses and workers, is to introduce a 20:1 pay scale, where the top earner can not earn anything more than 20 times more than the lowest paid worker. This will certainly be the case, if the plans to bring the Royal Mail back into public ownership takes place. I don't see anything wrong with that personally. It would stop people like Rico Back coming into a company like the Royal Mail, and being given £6m straight away, before he's even done anything.
  17. Leave supporting, LGBTQ+ baiting, "laziest MP in the UK", Roger Gorsiff should be seen off by any decent candidate, you'd hope.
  18. Glad to see Tahir Ali has been selected as the candidate. A great trade unionist, from my own union, the CWU.
