    line-up

    Great line-up and even greater theme for a tie dye wearer like me. So, who do we think is the Friday headliner? Someone exclusive for another event in June/July?

    Last night i watched Jools Holland........... and

    They played it again - so expect it to be better on Saturday, I thought the acts were great. I wasn't expecting to like them (except Marling) but I was presently surprised both Tuck, and Mahal are gonna be great live prospects.

    I seem to remember it being Labour most of the time ever since Michael Foot - Labour were last in power when elected in 2012. I'm a bit surprised Tudor Evans is back as the Labour leader in Plymouth - but I'm prepared to give him a chance (probably a month tops) - his fourth time in power in 20 years

    I still don't understand with the civil war all but over why Putin would would want to end it quicker with gas. But, it seems Fisk's take on it, suggests similar: "Putin might have been getting impatient about ending the war and wanted to eradicate those in the last tunnels of Douma rather than wait through more weeks of fighting. Remember the cruelty of Grozny." https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/theresa-may-syria-war-uk-chemical-weapons-attack-iran-iraq-thatcher-russia-a8300881.html?utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook

    Well clearly Saudi (in Sana'a, Yemen in 2015) can use them and have no kick back - so that argument internationally makes no sense EDITED to remove link as it's not the one I thought it was

    interesting viewpoint - you believe the only way to stay Russia's hand is a proxy war in Syria? I'm wondering if that's the majority view - but we will never find out. Maybot wants to avoid discussing this in parliament,. Isn't this desire to get our country back and power to make our own decisions that created Brexit mean the populace would now want a debate and a vote - or is Maybot afraid of losing a vote, if so is she is serving the good of the people or simply making a grab for power? Something, as i said, I believe is the case. This won't just be another war for oil control in the Middle East - whilst toppling another anti-capitalist regime. This time it will draw Iran and Israel into the fight. However with the loss of Paul Ryan, the Republicans control of Congress is looking weak, Trump needs military action to secure Republican votes - and is unlikely to not strike. Unless he feels his only option is to make us do it, in return for a good trade deal, and take the credit without drawing America into another conflict officially. Which I suspect will be what happens. Perhaps, it's our turn to start another conflict.

    Jeremy Corbyn has demanded MPs be given a vote in Parliament to authorise potential military action in Syria, that's what being at Plymouth Argyle does to you - makes you come over all authoristarian. He should shut up and eat his free Ginsters!

    yup agreed, very far fetched. I think the fact Iran is making propaganda about US's planned airstrikes not happening because [insert patriotic Iranian excuse here] means they're not anticipating a strike and telling their public the absence of one is down to them foiling the plot with major victories - a risky strategy. As you say if Trump does plan a strike. Then, much like this time last year, he'll tell the Russians first so they can move their resources out of the way first.

    May has just said we won't recall parliament to discuss military action - whether that means we won't get involved, or parliament won't get a vote I don't know
