|Extinction Rebellion co-founder sparks outrage after Holocaust comments...|
by Kerouac at 14:12 21 Nov 2019
Extinction Rebellion's co-founder, Roger Hallam, has caused outrage after telling a German publication that the Holocaust was "just another f***ery in human history".
In an interview with Die Zeit, the 53-year-old appeared to downplay the genocide of six million Jews by Nazi Germany and claimed Germans' attitude towards the massacre was holding them back.
"The extremity of a trauma can create a paralysis in actually learning the lessons from it".]
"The fact of the matter is, millions of people have been killed in vicious circumstances on a regular basis throughout history".
Hallam mentioned other mass killings during the last 500 years, including the Belgians' slaughter in the Congo, adding:
"They went to the Congo in the late 19th century and decimated it."
He suggested that because other genocides had repeatedly taken place over the centuries, the Holocaust could be considered "almost a normal event".

|Pembs fans forum last night|
by pembsjack at 10:13 21 Nov 2019
attended a fans forum last night, Trevor, Leon and Coops came down to answer questions etc. All 3 came across really well, Trevor seems level headed and was fairly open regarding money etc.
The more I hear of Coops, the more I like him. He's very detailed in his planning and Leon compared him to Brendan several times, so he must see something he likes also.
Birch openly admitted there's no money for January signings unless we sell first.
My main worry from the night was Birch mentioned the decreasing parachute payments and went on to say all assets are under review including players, academy level and the training grounds themselves.

Has something changed with this recently?
Up until last week used to be able to get a ceefax type screen (I know I’m old) where I could see football on page 302.
Has this been shutdown? I go to some digital format on the red button now.
|What is going to become of the Labour left after this election ?|
by ladyjack at 21:37 20 Nov 2019
When Corbyn, Skinner and McDonnell go [and they may step down/go after this election] then I don't know how many of their ilk will be left in the Parliamentary Labour party to keep the Red flag flying high, the next generation would have been the likes of Plaids Leanne Wood and Adam Price as they might have ended up in Labour when they were young if Labour had not lurched to the right, who knows, and as regards the younger generation Mhairi Black of the SNP would also fit into that category.
After a 100 odd years the red flag might well be starting to be lowered.
|Who would make a Wales Euro 2020 squad of 23 if all players are fit ?|
by ladyjack at 20:38 20 Nov 2019
Lots of choice for Giggs to pick from if all players are fit
K.Moore, Volkes, T.Roberts
Attacking midfielders -
Bale, Ramsey, Dan James, H.Wilson, Brooks, Tom Lawrence, Joniesta, Woodburn, R.Matondo, Hedges, G.Thomas, D.Levitt
Defensive midfielders -
Allen, Morrell, Ampadu, M.Smith, Vaulks
Central defenders - Roden, Chester, Williams, Mepham, J Lawrence, Lockyer
Fullbacks - B.Davies, C.Roberts, Gunter, N.Taylor, D.John
Goalies - Hennessey, D.Ward, A.Davies, O.Evans, T.King, C.Maxwell
Not sure if the above list is correct or if there are some players missing but if Wales play a 4-2-3-1 formation Wales have a World class squad of attacking midfielders to pick from, if Wales pick 2 players for every one position for example the 3 reserve attacking midfielders would be superb with the 3 first choice players playing for 3 of the biggest clubs in the World, Real Madrid, Juventus and Man Utd.
I would pick at least 7 for the squad in that area as we are so strong there and possibly just go with just 3 siting midfielders to accommodate, we are also very strong in the central defence areas as well.
