  1. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    This seems like a question for trivia fans, or possibly the Guardian's 'Knowledge' column: have any fans ever before attempted to turn the music of noted Mancunian miserabilist Morrissey into a chant before?
  2. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    'A cheeky bid'? Rodders, you've changed.
  3. Media and punditry

    To bastardise Martin Amis, these are some of the most complete 'personalities' British football has produced.
  4. Players who you just don't like

    ? I thought I read that the average stake was over £100? Is the average being skewed by a small number of huge bets?
  5. General Election 2017

    First he has to avoid the decidedly non-trivial risk of losing his seat.
  6. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    Season 2 has excellent set pieces and some really, really boring connective tissue, but it's not as bad as it's made out to be (while still not being good, exactly).
  7. General Election 2017

    This is Lynton Crosby's one (possibly even only) real strategy. It works brilliantly.
  8. Things You Don't "Get"

    Nope, not even slightly. 'Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an engineer' would be more than enough.
  9. The Film Thread

    Obviously this is something I need to investigate!
  10. The Film Thread

    Since I don't even know what Married with Children is I reckon you're safe.

    It is of course in Caroline Lucas's interests to talk the idea up. It matters not: Labour have to provide their own vision for the country. The country cannot simply be 'Tory' and 'not-Tory'. You cannot be successful if you only define yourself by what you are not. And the long-term effects (ie, a longer time horizon than the next six weeks) are desperate for Labour. As I said before, they would be effectively conceding that they are no longer a national political party. Caroline Lucas does not have Labour's interests at heart: why would she? No doubt. But that's his incompetence, not a workable strategy for the future.

    I'm well aware of the situation. However, if you're concerned about a 'fractured left', it makes no sense to destroy the main left-wing party by shackling it to a bunch of minor parties in a deeply unpopular semi-permanent coalition. The situation is hopeless, but a 'left-wing coalition' just makes explicit that there is no longer a national left-wing political party in the UK.

    It shows exactly why a Labour vote is needed more than ever. A 'progressive alliance' is a disaster.
