Government controlling the Internet - a good or bad thing discuss
at 14:05 15 Nov 2019

Not that one but it illustrates the same thing. People willing to vote on the personality of probably just a few people (which are probably take up 99% of the media's time) rather than just looking at the whole party and it's policies.

I did a quick google and found some links to blind tests..... I challenge people to take the test!

I did both and came out Green in both (with Labour 2nd and Lib Dem 3rd UKIP 4th and Con last).

Interestingly, I have never voted or considered to vote Green in my life! How many other people vote differently to what a test may yield? Lots I bet.

I read an article recently where a group of people from a cross section of society were given a blind test in terms of Party Policies. They were given a whole host of questions covering many aspects and then a multiple choice of answers for each which were all genuine policies from different parties.

The end result is that, unsurprisingly, most people want the core basics in life.... good health service, schools, amenities, transportation etc.

Why can't we just focus on that rather than all the unbelievable infantile bickering that goes on from supposed intelligent adults.

The problem with modern politics is it's become so extreme due to the social network world we live in. Say you're in favour of Labour and your're branded a 'socialist' (as though that's an extreme, which it's not) or if you're Tory you are fascist, anti-immigration etc.

It's all down to populist voting and I bet most people don't even know what each parties manifesto actually is.





BJ on BBC Breakfast this morning had to be repeatedly asked to stop going on about Labour and just answer the questions about his party and himself.
It seems to me that's what election campaigning is about,from all Parties.... destroy the opposition rather than focus on your own merits.

Sick of the lot of them.

Do football clubs NEED to make a profit?
at 12:06 15 Nov 2019

I would also ask does ANY company need to make a profit, certainly a significant one at that?

As long as all income is then invested back in terms of company development etc, shareholders dividends etc then anything extra is just a 'waste'. Companies sitting on millions of the pounds in the bank does what exactly?

OK, maybe I'm simplifying things and maybe I don't fully understand the complexities of business but just seems odd to me that companies can often have huge amounts of money doing nothing but then refuse to give staff a decent wage or invest in infrastructure etc.

For Egham Fans: If you Are Locked Out of Your Car
at 12:47 11 Nov 2019

What happens if you're locked out on an away trip to Middlesbrough? Long way for them to come.

Also, are there paid-for ad banners for this kind of thing?

It's certainly a concern but as our wifi at home hooks up our phones, tablets and Amazon Echo already, does then having a smart TV actually make any difference?

Fulham away
at 21:44 5 Nov 2019

Done it twice at West Ham (first time the famous Clive Allen brace including the famous drag back and turn)

Once at Chelsea, Charlton, Leeds, Arsenal, Spurs, Man Utd. Maybe a couple of others.

Hated all of them, didn't win any of them either.

The Standard has long since stopped being a London local paper reporting on local matters.
As London has a high population from around the country, continent, world it will report on matters to the highest common denominator even if that means Man Utd or or Australian politics, and of course their daily updates on all things Cara Develevelevelevelinge.

We feature very low down on what’s important to them and everyone else.

hypothetical about promotion
at 15:55 22 Oct 2019

Sadly LR is not fit for purpose anymore in terms of the facilities it needs to provide for PL football. It's changing rooms, officials rooms, Managers rooms, media facilities, press boxes, TV gantries & other camera placements, commentator & pundits boxes, match day corporate facilities, etc are all woefully out dated.

That's even before the considerations of the attending fans, who the PL & Sky clearly have no interest in, are taken into account.

Last season Reading were awful and came to us (over Christmas I think) and I thought they played really well in a draw. Going to be tough tonight. I'd take a point tonight if it meant getting 3 against the B's.

Staying in the PL would need both a new ground and training facilities. As both are still a long way off I'd say take the money in order to spend on those and spend fk all on new players and come back down.

Yes, it would be an awful season but if that agenda was spelled out beforehand at least there won't (well, there still would be) be loads of moaning threads after each defeat and people saying we should be buying this, that & the other player.

Anyone been to all these now defunct football grounds?
at 20:38 18 Oct 2019

10 from that list but also add Upton Park, White Hart Lane and didn’t Yeovil play at a different ground or was the New Huish built on the same site?

Message to all lapsed Rangers fans.......

I wish I could. After years of suffering all the durge I had the temerity to start a family and due to my other half's work commitments means it's nigh on impossible to do Saturday's and even mid-week games are highly unlikely too.

After going to about 30+ games a season I'm now down to just a handful :(

London Parks....
at 16:18 4 Oct 2019

In no particular order;

Holland Park - always went as a kid back in the 70's nice mixture of woodland, open spaces, adventure playground.

Hyde Park - Nice and big and back then did a lot of swimming in the Serpentine as a teenager.

Richmond Park - even bigger. Lots of family birthday picnics there

Crane Park - Close to where I now live. My boy (almost 5) loves it there.

Primrose Hill -close to where I previously lived, always a nice stroll up the hill on a Sunday nursing a hangover
