    There's been some reports on fansites that The Scum said Ashley won't release transfer funds until Rafa signs a contract, while Rafa won't sign a contract until Ashley releases funds. Considering that Ashley has reneged on a number of promises before, and there's only been one transfer (last summer) since Rafa took over that we've not made a profit on transfer dealings and reduced the wage bill, it's not surprising if true. Every man and his dog knows that Newcastle want a striker or two and an attacking mid. Ashley's not sanctioning any high budget transfers in case they don't work out, but if every window you buy an £8m striker then sell 2 years later for £2m, you spend far more than if you get one £20m striker. Particularly as you often have that extra wage budget and agency fees and signing fees. We've got about 7 or 8 Prem quality players, if we add a Prem quality goalscorer to that we'll be completely fine with no worries of relegation. But... Ashley.

    While I think we need an upgrade on Gayle.... Is Rondon really it? I still don't see what he brings different from Joselu. A bit of decent link-up play without any goals. While I agree, hasn't he scored fairly comfortably in the Championship before? I wouldn't say "guarantees" but I'd put him fairly favourably to be one of the top scorers if the team is half-decent.

    Oh yeah. Main point remains though.

    I don't have the cash on hand to do that unfortunately. It's more about looking at staying with friends and family anyway.

    Yup. I've entered the ballot for Edgbaston, Headingley and OT. Going to see what prices are like and work out with my mate which we'll go to. I want to do Edgbaston really but it depends a bit on prices and what accommodation I can sort.

    Populists find an other to blame and promise a load of shinies without delivering. The system is something plenty blame (Clegg and Bernie inc), but it's not the only thing.

    I kinda wish the ICC would just come out and say "lets organise and sell baseball".

    No, populists blame an other. Not necessarily immigrants. Macron, corbyn, and salmond are populists.

    Brexit Schmexit

    No, I'm saying that in their debates in parliament and discussions with other MPs they took a stance and said they were going to stand by it. If they're viewed as untrustworthy " in the perfect position to lie to the Tories and screw them over, weren't they?" as you described it, then they'll find it harder in future to get other concessions/agreements through.

    Brexit Schmexit

    Quite. I think failing to acknowledge and hold up the bargain will hurt Brandon Lewis and others involved in Swinson's pairing in future votes for a long time. I don't really want Labour MPs acting similarly and then failing to get a different bill through because of it.

    I'm pretty much always rude, arrogant, and dismissive about the Canary. It's poorly written opinionated conspiracy theories exaggerating the impact of every decision that isn't ratified by the Glorious Leader. I answered your original questions about the article in my original post. I did so badly, and you instantly went towards stating that I was advocating repossession and felt the housing crisis was of no relevance to me. Instantly. You've been throwing a tantrum since before I called you an accusatory twat. Struggling with a mortgage is a problem plenty of people would love to have. Having a mortgage means that you still have an asset that provides a safety net. It's obviously still a shit situation but it's far preferable to many. I'm not trying to compete over a tough childhood. It's not the sort of thing that ever should be a competition. You're the one who brought up my background to try and trigger me. I've just been stating that it led to me not wanting to turn to my parents for help when I was in a shit situation. For a bunch of reasons that have nothing to do with you I've not really been going into the "things that annoy you" and "things that make you happy" threads over the past year. I take it you've both noticed and been expressing some stuff of your own based on that comment, but I neither know what you're talking about, or, in the context of this argument, care. And I wasn't lecturing you on being nice, I was calling you out for attempting guilt trips and falsely describing what I think.

    It also brings about questions that will cause huge problems for future voting agreements. As the lack of trust gained from the tories not acknowledging the pair with Jo swinson.

    You don't understand what a centrist is. Or a Blairite. I'll happily cop to being a w*nker though, particularly on the Internet. Am I callous in terms of the benefit need of those with assets? Absolutely. I grew up with privilege and I understand that having wealth provides a safety net other people don't have. Benefits should prioritise those without other safety nets, particularly supplementary ones that act on top of the standard ones. A lack of privilege involves insecurity. Insecurity about where you're living, what and when you can eat, whether you can afford to heat your home, afford prescriptions. It's not having that safety net. I've lived like that as I didn't want to use my safety net because of the emotional cost of it, and it was miserable, and still less miserable than the emotional shitstorm that was asking for help. You brought up an emotional situation of your own and tried to bully me with both that and your limited knowledge of my history gleamed from pained posts during a tough time. I don't give a shit what tone you think I used given your accusations about both the meaning of my original response and about who I am. You're not patient, and you're currently throwing a tantrum because I used poor phrasing in a statement about those with assets not being a priority in a system of limited government resources.

    Steven Taylor's red was hilarious. He falls down like he's been shot, then as he gets carded he just gets up, shrugs, grins, and walks off. Brilliant stuff.

    I should have clarified extra benefits rather than benefits. But, if an extra benefit is to go to people in tough situations, it shouldn't go to those who have actual assets to sell. You're projecting my bad phrasing onto a series of ridiculous and exaggerated assumptions and being an accusatory twat in the process.
