A goal that calls for the word "sumptuous"

That was a sumptuous finish

"dancing is the same as blowing people up" is one hell of a take.

Nope, no part of that is true. I don't know what alt-right conspiracy blogs you've been reading, but Roger Hallam quite explicitly detests the left. Take five minutes speaking to an XR person, or better go along to an organizing meeting. They don't identify as being left wing. They probably think the left is part of the problem. They're Guardian reading liberals who are terrified about climate change, they're not Bolsheviks.

To be fair, a bunch of posh kids doing interpretive dance routines in Trafalgar Square isn't that terrifying.

"A "normal" demonstration, so, lots of people walking down the street and chanting their message and waving their slogans"

Well, to be fair, if these A to B marches against climate change ever achieved anything we wouldn't be on the brink of climate catastrophe now, would we?

Re this action, yeah it's dumb as fvck. I understand when it was mooted the majority in the network opposed it, and the reality of course is that any one can do anything and claim it's being done be XR. That said, the group is very middle class, very white suburban, and has very ill-formed politics, a real naivete, and a real lack of awareness of the lessons of previous climate movements. Their naivete and overt insistence that they are a-political has probably worked for them up until now, because they are constituted of demographics that don't typically get involved in left-wing activism. It isn't the usual suspects turning up to their actions. Great. But, a climate movement without the support of the working-class will get no where ultimately, and pissing off a load of workers on their way to work on environmentally friendly transport is thick.

As posted on the Frankie Fridays thread, totally in to this guy at the moment. He's just brought this out:



I'd really recommend checking out his 2016 LP, 'Love Songs: Part Two', too.

What a goal by Rashford

Quite a brave comment on this from Southgate:

Southgate gave an insight into how steeled his players now were to racist abuse. “Sadly, because of their experiences in our own country, they are hardened to racism,” he said.

At the risk of being incredible simplistic: the point here is that football clubs are community assets, and as such the community in which they are rooted should have some say over what they do and how they operate. Everything else is just details. The big picture is about re-conceptualising the relationship between a club and its supporters. Taking back control if you will.

Such is the fearsome power of light social democratic reform, it's enemies will bend themselves into hitherto unimaginable contortions just to disagree with anything Corbyn says.

Really enjoyable watch, blimey we're really good hey?

Hugill's goal was one of those headers you know is in a good second before it hits the net.

Anyone notice milk enthusiast Mike Gapes gleefully clapping at the front next to the steward after BOS's goal?

OP is a good shout Brian, one of my favourite albums of recent years too. I get why his voice annoys people too, but it works for me, even if I can hear why people find it a bit ridiculous in places. And it does sails quite close to being a bit Mumford and Sons in places, but again it never quite tips over for me. A great mix of melody and art-rock experimentalism - a bit like Young Father's 'White Men Are Black Men Too'.

In fact, that's probably one of my other favourite albums of the decade. Love this video.
