    Bloody Sunday -

    Perhaps if the soldiers involved had told the truth to the enquiry, closure could have been achieved. As it is it has been allowed to fester all these years.

    Last Night

    I wasn't too sure about that pre-match promotion either Sid. There's not much love lost between the two sides already without stirring the pot πŸ™„

    Bloody Sunday -

    The armed forces have to be held to a higher standard than terrorists they are supposed to be fighting i.e. before shooting anyone they should have been very certain that what they were doing was justified. In the case of some of these soldiers, and soldier "F" being one, it has been shown forensically that the people they shot and killed were murdered, being unarmed and offering no threat to the soldiers. So you can't really say that they should be forgiven just because the IRA terrorists have been let off, two wrongs don't make a right etc. They were put into NI to protect civilians, not to kill them.

    Last Night

    A tasty game against the Pies last night finished with the Wire 25-12 victors, with 11 men on the pitch against Wigan's 12. Both sides had a man sin-binned and Benny Westwood red carded after a bit of argy-bargy near the end.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    I just got a downvote on a post I made 6 months ago, how strange. In other news I see Lt Kije has returned to haunt us again, hello stranger. Some coincidence eh? πŸ€”

    The cost of Argentine beef will go down because it won't be subject to EU level tariffs.

    And what is wrong with British beef Confused?

    Deal or No Deal ?

    What I was given to understand was that the government intend to have no tariffs in place for inports into NI from the Republic to avoid having a hard border. Tariffs in line with the EU will obviously in place on the Republic side of the border but, of course, such tariffs are payable by the importer. This is probably why the Irish farmers are complaining but any complaints should be directed at the Taoiseach.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    The government has said it will make the NI border tariff free in case of No Deal, and the Irish farmers are still complaining!

    Deal or No Deal ?

    No, there's been no decision on anything yet. A couple more votes over the next couple of days, but it's doubtful whether Parliament can come to a meaningful decision about anything.

    Deal or No Deal ?

    The Irish border issue was brought into play late in the day when it became obvious to the ptb that some spoiling tactics were needed to delay or cancel Brexit.
  18. Deputy leader of the Labour party, Tom Watson, tweeted this: I have written to Google CEO @SundarPinchai calling on him, as a matter of urgency, to remove the YouTube page of Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson. pic.twitter.com/3smqXuVr1u β€” Tom Watson (@tom_watson) March 2, 2019 Now, whether or not you like/dislike Tommy Robinson or agree/disagree with his views and politics, isn't a dangerous path we may be going down when a politician can "call on" the CEO of a social media company to take action like this? What next, will he be picking on someone else he dislikes and suggesting that their bank closes their account, the power company shuts off their electricity and gas etc? Social media companies are already engaged in shutting down the accounts of people they disagree with, without having a tinpot would be dictator like Watson "calling on " them to do it.

    The thin end of the wedge

    That is a quote from the Twitter feed of Titania McGrath, which is a spoof Twitter account that takes the mickey out of SJWs who Tweet nonsense like this and believe it 🀣🀣. Look it up, it's amusing.

    If you don’t think exactly the same way as me, then you’ve clearly got a lot to learn about diversity.

    The thin end of the wedge

    Exactly, it wouldn't be much of a forum if we all agreed on everything would it? I still find it strange that you would say I'm "not very tolerant" of views different to mine though, as all I'm doing is expressing a different opinion to you.

    Now - then

    Stallard mate, I personally don't give a flying (enter your favourite expletive in the space provided) what happens to my remains when I'm gone (Except for the proviso that my ashes aren't spread anywhere near Anfield). That covers your burial plan bit. I think the world is going to hell in a handbasket, but again I think I'll be long gone before it happens, so I'll just keep trundling along until the inevitable happens.

    The thin end of the wedge

    Am I trying to stop you expressing your opinion in any way at all Davy? Am I asking anybody to shut down your access to Warrington-Worldwide Forum because I don't agree with your opinion? This is what free speech is Davy, differences of opinion in an open forum. However you seem to be in favour of some unknown, unseen power shutting down all and every opinion that THEY don't tolerate. See where I'm going with this? And, unfortunately, the unknown and unseen Theresa May, and others of her ilk, are just the ones to shut us all down from saying what we believe. 1984 is almost here, a little later than forecast but............................................................πŸ˜•
