    The Big Summer Clearout

    Everyone remembers King for those performances in the FA Cup - mainly because he didn't do a whole lot for us outside of that. Now granted a lot of that was down to Bowyer's tactics/style and how we were using King (if Bowyer decided to select him at all), but there wasn't exactly uproar when he left. Some disappointment that we'd let his contract run down but that's about it. He's obviously done very well since then and in retrospect we weren't utilising him properly at all, but hindsight is what it is. Bowyer never liked using fast or skilful players so it was never going to work out for King here. Rhodes aside you had to be a grafter first and foremost to get anywhere near a GB starting eleven. Unfortunately as a result towards the end of GB's reign especially we ended up with eleven cloggers on the pitch who worked hard but were as entertaining as paint drying on the proverbial wall.

    It's been this way for a long, long time - it's how our economy ended up in the state it's in! But Brexit has really brought it all to the fore in the most brutal way. People talk about there being riots if we revoke article 50, but in some countries this kind of gross incompetence would have caused riots a long time ago. Our politicians are not fit for purpose, but in true British fashion we just mutter angrily and shake our heads. For the record, I am not advocating riots or any form of violence, but if there was ever a time to make serious moves to alter our tired, archaic political structure this is it.

    The whole "we won, you lost" nonsense is exactly why the vote should never have been put to the public. People are far too narrow-minded, treating this monumental decision like it's a fucking football rivalry or getting one over your mate. We're all going to be living in the same country afterwards, so either we all win or we all lose.

    The beauty of an Everdrive cartridge is that I can do just that As an aside a store in Belgium is currently doing the PS1 Classic for £26.42 (including delivery): https://www.smartoys.be/catalog/ It has a lot of flaws but can be hacked pretty easily these days so probably worth buying at that price. Will just have to see how long it takes to get here!

    Honestly I'm yet to meet a single genuinely informed person who was or is optimistic over Brexit. I have, however, met plenty of people championing the idea of "no deal" and being on WTO terms - even though the head of the WTO bluntly stated that it would be the sporting equivilent of being relegated multiple divisions. It's still difficult for me to understand how such an important decision was put into the hands of the general public, who were and are grossly underqualified to even begin advising on such a course of action. There's no way a person who doesn't specifically work or study in EU politics/law/trade could possibly begin to even fathom the implications of leaving the European block - judging by the Brexit process so far even people who DO work and study in this area are unable to do so. The referendum will surely go down as one of the most irresponsible, foolhardy and wreckless political decisions in modern history. Whether you voted to remain or you voted to leave, ultimately it looks like nobody is going to get what they wanted - unless you wanted a weakened, humiliated and brutally exposed UK. If so you have gotten your wish many times over. Even if Article 50 is at some point revoked, or a second referendum goes out to the same ill-informed public and they then decide to stay in the EU this time, a lot of damage has already been done.

    The EU are basically telling the UK that if May's deal doesn't pass on Wednesday, get rid of her and we will talk again. Keep her on and there's nothing more we can do, you're on your own.

    No, I've never really been big on the series. I played 7 but that's just because it was in VR!

    As far as "will of the people" is concerned... https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-47652071 https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/241584 Hmmm... looks like a lot of people are realising our Government are and in fact our entire political system is a joke and totally unprepared to deliver the referendum result.

    For a truly democratic vote via the "will of the people" the proposed Brexit deal would have to be put to the people for a vote on whether it's acceptable or not. I'm sure said people would vote with as much knowledge as they had about exiting Europe - virtually none - but if this "will of the people" mantra is to be given serious credence then it would have to include a public vote on the delivery of the outcome as well as the initial question. Otherwise the obvious question is why were we allowed to vote on something we then can't influence afterwards? What if 80% of the 52% wanted to leave No Deal? May isn't speaking for them with her proposals, then, is she? The truth is nobody knows what the "will of the people" really is because the initial question was ridiculously vague, so anybody spouting such rhtetoric - especially Theresa May - should be considered little more than charlatans trying to pull the wool over people's eyes in order to push a personal agenda. Granted, that is essentially the modus operandi of all major political parties, but still...

    All I remember about the early Resident Evil games is despising the control schemes. It might be better on the remakes, but I'm not sure I'm willing to take the risk... So instead I bought Horizon Zero Dawn. Have heard it's a good game.

    Please confirm they removed those god awful tank controls - or at least made them optional?
