  1. Really hope spurs pip Everton for Gomes. They look so much better with the two defensive midfielders. Both Gomes and Sigurdsson is just too light weight in the middle.
  2. Its possible they were trump supporters the populist right and left agree on a hell of alot of things anti-free trade for example. Trump has been a democrat for most of his life and only used the republicans as a vehicle to get elected. I do think it would be a mistake to go for Bernie though, someone like Andrew Wang maybe an interesting choice.
  3. Batten did an Owen Jones and stormed off the sky news interview when questioned about it. These you tubers and bloggers are popular with the kids but I'm not sure they can cross into the mainstream yet. That goes for ones on the left and right. I'm amazed at the support for farage though. Top of the polls for the euro elections immediately after launching his party.
  4. its frustrating for fantasy football managers.. Hazard gets loads of points behind a striker but Sari keeps trying him up front where he's useless. he didn't start playing till Higuain came on.
  5. It could of been worded better as I said he had a point regarding the picture that was posted but it came across as a general attack on comic relief and he ended up being blamed for donations being £8m down or what ever. Its always the politicians that can look for common ground and create unity that make the most successful leaders.
  6. Not sure on Lammy, he occasionally crosses into Abbott territory with stuff like the comic relief comments. He had a partial point but it can appear as race baiting to labours traditional voters who he'd need to keep onside.
  7. This sort of stuff doesn't help either: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3991189/jennifer-robinson-mystery-blonde-seumas-milne-julian-assange-lawyer-amal-clooney/
  8. Its just more of "anythings better than western liberal democracy" something that damages Nato/US/EU is always a good thing. To be honest as the usual suspects backed Putin over the Salisbury attack I can't see this being any more damaging, surely most people now know where today's labour party stand on this sort of stuff.
  9. It’s not defending but pointing out it isn’t unique, many different religious people have lesser rights in certain countries; https://www.christiantoday.com/article/6-countries-where-owning-a-bible-is-dangerous/84497.htm this obsession with Israel which crosses over into repeating the same anti Semitic troupes as Hilter is quite troubling. There is a reason gay Muslims risk their lives escaping from Palistine into Israel. These “lesser” rights seem much better than the alternative
  10. You could make argument that when the PLO were in charge, their issues with Israel maybe didn’t cross into antisemitism. With Jez’s mates Hamas who I believe have been elected in the West Bank since 2006/7 that clearly isn’t the case. Their charter reads like mein kampf
  11. Apparently yes.. 25 seems to be the key age: https://mentalhealthdaily.com/2015/02/18/at-what-age-is-the-brain-fully-developed/
  12. Well you could argue they are gaining skills which may lead to better employment further down the line.. Some jobs do become uneconomic at higher wage levels simply because people start to do these things themselves.. wash their own car, eat or drink at home rather than the pub or local restaurant. The issue with universal income seems to be the same reason the government likes to encourage people into work even if it’s for a few hours. It creates routine and self discipline. If you look at other types of state provided income the vast majority don’t use it to create art or write poetry. The areas with the largest number of people living off the state seem to have the biggest problems with alcoholism and drug use.
  13. What have the independent group done to piss delta poll off? Though noticed that poll is over a month old so maybe too close to formation?
  14. Or you could of linked to the real wiki which says it is actually a thing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt_School and you don't have to be a "super intelligent economist" to be aware of things like Marxism or cultural marxism or capitalism, they may appear "super intelligent" to you but most people have a basic understanding of different political and economic theories.
  15. If you are told by complete morons like Owen Jones then yes. You are allowed to critique political theory. If you disagreed with the papers written by any of these people its ok to say so and why: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Jewish_economists Saying Milton Freidmans monetarist theory had a bad effect on society isn't racist.
