Too late, Peter, but it speaks volumes about our corrupt @UEFA. This Final is an utter farce, and everyone knows it.
A property owning nation was peak one nation policy. Utterly admirable in principle, but it involved poor paying rich for borrowing the required capital, and when the markets went tits up guess who suffered. Until people get this we are in trouble, because it caused poverty now.
I understand obviously why May's resignation and her replacement is top story. But a bit of me wonders whether over the medium term Cable's replacement (about which nothing on my timeline) may be also quite important.
There weren't a few hundred gobshites on social media then to discredit great parties on either side of the divide. Few tories today even know who Disraeli was. Just entitled fuckwits. It applies to the other side of the divide, to be fair. Bevan? Who's he? ?
@davidallengreen The irony is that they have completely bombshelled the One Nation Tory creed that made them such an electoral force from Disraeli onwards in the first place. Heath both hated and last party leader to clear 45% in an election. Eden and Macmillan 49% prior to that
Sorry for the political posts, but it hurts to see two parties who have kept each other in check over my lifetime swing so violently to the extremes under foreign influence. A great union is being transported back to the 19th century as a result. You're a have, or a have not.
Agreed. The future is very different. Three party coalitions? Corbyn and Cameron/May have destroyed the two parties we were presented with as realistic options. It's scary beyond belief.
@TheGoonerholic @jeremycorbyn I voted yesterday. For the first time, I had to think deeply, because Labour wasn't an option. Heartbreaking reality. That and to a far lesser degree, the shocking mess concerning Baku has made this a week to forget. The one common denominator? Losing sight of humanity. ?
