    Raab: “I hadn’t quite understood the full extent of this, but if you look at the UK and look at how we trade in goods, we are particularly reliant on the Dover-Calais crossing,” he said. I'm speechless

    ROVERS v qpr

    When Charlie Austin was playing? Yeah, think it was a draw. The language was awful. Hoillett really copped for some as well. I was stood there cringing.

    ROVERS v qpr

    I remember going to QPR in '93 and everyone was singing: "QP-RRRRR, QP-RRR, QP-hahahahahahaaa!" Which is a lot better than 2013 I think it was, with a load of anti-Burnley songs and digs at Charlie Austin, and generally shouting the w word as often as poss.

    Is that legal, not doing customs checks? They're making it up as they go along

    Thanks for the map chaddy. Confirmation that brexit threatens the integrity of the UK. A vote to make the poor poorer, limit opportunities of the young, threaten the economy and break up the UK. Well done, and thanks

    But the EU won't accept May's deal. Parliament can only approve a deal that is made with the EU, and after two years of going round in circles, there is no deal to approve as yet. Its the Irish border that will kill it

    Yes, because it's working out so brilliantly.

    Why will we get a trade deal? The EU negotiation team isn't telling us what to do, but they're not going to accept proposals that threaten the integrity of the EU. Why should they? A tariff free deal means staying in the customs union, so why bother leaving the EU in that case? UK bill of rights? What?

    "No reason why we cant have a similar deal to the EU like USA or Canada or Switzerland. " Well, yes they're is, otherwise it would've been done already, wouldn't it? We either stay in the custom's union and avoid a hard border, or we come out of the union, rely on wto rules and as per international law, have a physical border. That is what a Canada style deal would entail and it would lead to a return of the troubles

    They're reading emails half a mile away from the computer screen... Yep, that makes perfect sense now that I think about it

    His form is no mystery at all. His confidence has been ruined. And it's no bloody surprise if he had people like allot around him. Shameful

    I couldn't care less about finals day. Ram it mate. As matt said, they're just interested in earning money. No ambition at all. How are fans meant to get excited about that? It's pathetic. No point changing the monkey when the organ grinder is making a poor do

    Brexit, brought to you by rees mogg. The same fella who wants an expeditionary force to go to the Falklands, just in case the war kicks off again. Who wants a star wars system for the UK, just like the one Roald Reagan wanted for the US, at a time when he was deteriorating mentally. It would be funny if it wasn't so serious. Where Boris the dosser gone? Farage, gove, Johnson, rees mogg. The one thing they all have in common (besides being tossers) is that they've never taken any responsibility for their brexit wet dream. They've stood on the sidelines jeering as other people have had the impossible job of making a success out of a hopeless throwback deluded half-baked fantasy. Typical of people who've never had to operate in the real world, who've let other people deal with the consequences of their selfish nonsense. The whole thing is nauseating

    It's crazy that the UK keeps on putting the same deal on the table. It's brinkmanship, hoping that the eu will crack at the last minute. Of course they won't. So we'll crash out without any sort of deal at all. The consequences will be punitive and will be felt by all but the very rich, who have been the drivers of brexit from the very beginning and have used the press and social media to brain wash people. It's tragic that people will only realise that they've been had after irreversible damage has been done

    Only thing worse is finding out that birdy is doing an embarrassing kit launch video and making a proper chop out of himself
  23. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO???? There I was flicking through the first team profiles on the official site, as you do. "Who the bloody hell's that, looks like another frigging Portuguese chancer?!" Lo and behold he actually comes from Barcelona, is a goalie, but that's about it. He looks like he's related to one of those portuguese wasters though. I'm just wondering if it's all the same fella wearing disguises. Have we had more than one of these prats appear for the first team at the same time? Anyone seen Henrique and Raya in the same room together?
  24. I think when retirement was first introduced, life expectancy was 65 years and 3 months. With life expectancy increasing, it's harder and harder to justify keeping the retirement age as it is, because it is incumbent on following generations to create the wealth to help pay for it. The same generations that are locked out of housing and social mobility and are burdened with decades of debt repayments just because they wanted a university education. I don't think it's "madness" to give them money to invest in their future (rather than spent on an epic beer-up in Magaluf), because these are the people I'll be relying on for my pension. I'm sorry that your partner has to work for longer, but as bad as it may seem, she won't have it anywhere near as bad as those entering the world of work in the last five or ten years.
  25. Re:stitches, best not to eat anything heavy within two hours before your run. It's caused, I think, by your internals bouncing up and down on your diaphragm. If you get one, slow down a bit, and press your forefinger and middle finger down on your stomach right underneath your rib cage. Also try to breathe out only when your left foot hits the floor
