QPR decided not to take the knee at tonight's game, although Coventry were happy to to take the knee.
Correct decision or not ?
|Gleision Mine Disaster Anniversary|
at 20:53 15 Sep 2020
GLEISION MINE DISASTER
Gleision Colliery is a small drift mine in the Swansea Valley and
On 15 September 2011, became the location of the worst mining disaster to occur in Wales for three decades (that the UK has not had a major mining disaster in some years is due largely to the closure of most of its pits).
The accident occurred while seven miners were working a narrow coal seam. Following an initial blast, the adit began to fill with water. Three of the miners escaped, with one being taken to hospital with life threatening injuries, while the others were trapped underground. A search and rescue operation was launched to locate the four remaining miners, but they were sadly found dead the following day.
It is thought that the flood was caused by waters entering the mine from an old excavation.
The bodies of Charles Breslin, 62, David Powell, 50, Garry Jenkins, 39, and Phillip Hill, 45, who all lived locally, were discovered on Friday. Prime Minister David Cameron said it was a "desperately sad situation". The bodies of all four men have been recovered.

|Down the Mumbles yesterday|
at 20:21 12 Aug 2020
Me and the missus took advantage of the lovely weather yesterday, and decided to risk a visit to Castlemare restaurant for a light lunch.
There were plenty of people about, but to be fair, everyone was socially distancing and being very respectful of it.
What a fantastic place to have lunch, sat there eating a nice meal with a pint of cold Peroni overlooking Bracelet bay, absolutely stunning, something we would have been doing on the holiday we didn't have this year.
I know it's been said many times, but we really don't appreciate the beauty of our country.
To round off a really lovely day, we decided to stop at the Old Havana on the way back home for a couple of cocktails (wife had taken over driving duties).
3 cocktails for £10, what a f*cking rip off, the alcohol content was zero, I thought I'd be clever and tried to go to the bar and order another, so I could watch them making it, but of course due to corvid virus I wasn't allowed to.
The robbing tw*ts....anyone else had the similar experience there ?

Young right back just come on for Liverpool, looking good, and he's Welsh (Wrexham).
Never heard of him myself, anybody ?
|Armed police in Clydach today|
at 19:36 12 Jun 2020
Me and the missus were driving through Clydach today when a police car overtook us with flashing lights, next thing they pulled up jumped out to confront a guy in a white, obviously armed response officers.
After a minute or so the guy gets out arms raised with officers pointing guns at him, handcuffed and made to kneel, while other officers entered a property and brought out some teenage girls.
Anyway with the police chopper overhead they seemed to have got it under control without my help, so I turned the car round and p*ssed off, was wondering if anyone knows what it was all about ?

She was 12 years old, which is a very good age for Rabbit.
Massive Swans fan.
|R.I.P Val Davies nee Hopton|
at 22:17 17 Jul 2019
Going to her funeral tomorrow.
A Swans season ticket holder, Val lost her battle with Cancer last week.
She struggled, but managed to make it to nearly every home game last season despite suffering the debilitating effects of her chemo, but after all she was going through, she still keep cheerful and enjoyed a drink and a laugh with us at the Riverside bar before and after the game.
She really was one hell of a strong girl with a wicked sense of humour, right up to the last. On her deathbed she told her husband she wanted to be buried in her wedding dress, and when her husband told her it wouldn't fit her now, she replied "get my Swans shirt signed by Nathan Dyer then" he did, and she actually passed away in it, and will also be buried in tomorrow.
At least she lasted long enough to see the birth of her first grandchild, something that brought her great comfort but at the same time great sadness knowing that she would not see her grow up.
No matter which of our players leave in the future, none will be missed by me on match days more than I will miss Val.
Rest in peace Val Y.J.B.

|Worst case of Fly Tipping in Wales|
at 18:23 12 Apr 2019
£500 fine and 1 Year suspended jail sentence...not enough for the dirty filthy c*nts IMO.
They made thousands out of indiscriminate dumping all sorts of crap.
No wonder there's so much fly tippers about if this is what the courts give them if caught.
