    Fútbol, Le Foot, Voetbal, ποδόσφαιρο

    The Korean KLeague 1 and 2 season start this Friday. Behind closes doors for now, but at least it's live footy! My team, Ulsan Hyundai, have signed ex-Bolton winger Lee Chung-yong and former Rovers trialist Yoon Bitgaram. We are gunning for the title we missed out on by a single goal scored last season. Not sure if any UK broadcaster has picked it up but Bet365 might have it.

    Coronavirus

    Trump's China flight restrictions (it was not in any way a ban) were called xenophobic for good reason. They only targeted Chinese citizens. Meanwhile around 40,000 non Chinese people who had been in Hubei province waltzed through US airports without so much as a temperature check. And that's the reason the US now has over half a million cases. Trump slapped a half-arsed, reactionary and prejudiced directive on the table and hit the golf course.

    Timely and accurate or not, the WHO gave the exact same information to every country at the same time (the hint is in the name). US and Korea had their first cases on the same day. Success and failure have to be down to their respective leaders.

    Is it Happy Impeachment or Merry Impeachment? I don't want to offend anyone 😄

    No non-EEA immigrant - be they legal or, of course, illegal - would have any hope of claiming any public funds. It is a lie that has been spread and gone uncorrected for years. Non-EEA immigrants do not get any of the following: Means-tested benefits such as income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support, income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Pension Credit and Housing Benefit Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit Universal Credit Child Benefit Social Fund payments Council Tax reduction Domestic rate relief (Northern Ireland) Extra-costs disability benefits including Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance and Personal Independence Payment Carer’s Allowance an allocation of local authority housing local authority homelessness assistance Read this if you want to know all the ins and outs: https://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/SN06847 Illegal immigrants would not dare apply for these benefits anyway - they kind of want to keep a low profile. Illegal immigrants go to the UK to work. Full stop. They work, they send the money home, and then they leave. It is the employers and criminal gangs that need to be the focus of police efforts - that's how to prevent things like this happening. Meanwhile, this tragic event should not be used by anti-immigration types to further muddy the waters.

    Well, not really. Not according to the FBI who are actually investigating the Dayton shooter. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/06/us/mass-shootings.html So this was a "best-case scenario" for the gun lobby. Good guys with guns were on hand to kill the shooter as quickly as possible - just as they preach. Yet he still had the firepower to kill 9 people and shoot another 14 - by firing 41 shots in 30 seconds. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/08/05/us/dayton-monday-shooter-stopped-in-seconds/index.html Now clearly there are nutters and terrorists of all political persuasions, of all warped motivations, of all narcissistic fantasies - but only in America can they easily arm themselves with military-grade weaponry with which to gain their infamy.

    Are you saying that the US government is forcing people to have abortions?

    It wasn't just that he was talking to Elijah Cummings. When he talks about troubled areas of Baltimore, he is talking about majority Black neighbourhoods who have been redzoned and disadvantaged for decades upon decades. The line "no human being would want to live there" is truly skin-crawlingly racist. Trump uses America's despicable history of racism to divide the country with just enough plausible deniability for his defenders to sleep at night.

    This is not an opposite reaction - its the exact same thing as all terrorist acts. They murder innocent people who are simply exercising their freedoms and minding their own business. This time the victims were Muslims, but also Dads and Mums and sons and daughters and New Zealanders and a thousand other different labels. They were singled out by one hateful individual for one aspect of their personality. There is only one battle going on - terrorism vs. freedom

    True at the moment because Kim meets the constitutional age requirement. AOC doesn't. She's certainly one for the future though, if she can pace herself a little better.

    www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45436243 Amateur hour continues. Anonymously attacking Trump but clinging to your job is the height of cowardice. They are still putting party and self before whats best for the country. None of these guys and girls in the Trump White House will ever be able to get the stink off. They took a job with an incompetant moron and no amount of 'adult in the room' talk will save their reputations.

    Oh of course everyone is fishing for attention on the internet to some extent. Its human nature. But only a truly dispicable person would quite delibrately risk a sexual assault case going to mistrial for his own political gain.

    "This is not some new form of censorship directed at Robinson. These are rules that apply to us all, equally. If he is unsure about that, he's now got time on his hands to read a copy of Essential Law for Journalists" Puhahahaha well said BBC News. Internet famous moron thinks his popularity puts him above the law as he constantly chases 'likes'. He is then martyred by those as ignorant as he is. This story will be repeated again and again as there is seemingly no end of plonkers looking for an internet fight. The new hooliganism.

    Nothing to do with Trump at all. A joint Olympic has been in the pipeworks for decades. They marched under a joint flag at Sydney 2000. The current ROK President, Pres. Moon, was a great political ally of Pres. Kim (held office in 2000) and is trying to follow his 'Sunshine Policy' - meaning the South will engage diplomatically with the North regards of any ongoing provocations. Trump has openly scoffed at the Sunshine policy, and said Kim Jeong-un only understands threats. But then Trump wants to claim some hand in any diplomatic successes. We know that is to be expected of the lying POS.
