Re: Cancel Culture Corner / Woke Stuff

You stated that Stonewall's diversity champion scheme says "gender and sex are deemed the same". Is this true or not, and can you please tell me where you heard this? It is, in terms of rights and protections. As distinct from the below from the GRA Stonewall maintain that if a person ide...

The head of trans inclusion for SW was a witness and has pulled the curtain back on SW policies and the pure spite and rabid group think that drives them. I...

Re: United Ireland?

Well, there are a fair few people in "the south" who are not so keen for a political re-unification and feel that its British problem and are happy for it to stay that way.

As well as this there is a need in the writing to steer the show back towards the wow factor that science fiction can deliver.

Re: Dennis Waterman RIP

RIP. He stared in great TV series, and the Sweeney is great on so many levels. But to be so good as the second lead in it that you get a series invented and written for you to star in as Dennis Waterman did with Minder is a real achievement. And for Minder to be so good, when so many other vehicle p...

Re: Cancel Culture Corner / Woke Stuff

Well none of them addressed my actual point. The whole "this goes against biology/nature" is exactly the same argument homophobes used to use. Most people have accepted that was b*llocks, but now are accepting the same argument to justify bigotry against trans people. If people were talki...

Re: ⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: match thread

Defensive high line - Johnson, Coufal with their men, Zouma drawn out but with his. The other CB's have to deal with runner. Didn't happen. Definitely Cresswell's man. The image shows the issue. Bowen out of the covering position so Coufal is drawn forward but isn't close enough to effectively pres...

The most annoying bit is that she claims she "fully supports trans rights". J K Rowling says similar things, I hate this "I'm not racist but" style of doublespeak. I like my bigots out and proud. Own your hate you cowards. Way to conflagure a point! In reply, it is perfectly pos...

Re: Declan Rice

There's a man who transcends the gulf between the terrace and the pitch, who is emotionally welded to this football club and who is good enough to attract players in his peer group and drag this club to where he wants to be. The right three signings in the summer and he's nailed on to extend his con...

I know 4 people who work on that line out of Ilford. None of them are West Ham (3x gooners, 1 x spud).
I know most, and it's overwhelmingly West Ham if in fact they follow football.

Re: ⚽ Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: match thread

I keep banging on about Lyon (A) but our game plan, how we set up, defensively & going forward we were outstanding. We limited a very dangerous side in Lyon, to half chances. We set up Johnson, Diop, Dawson & Coufal & Lyon barely had a sniff. How can Moyes ever trust Cresswell again? Wh...

Re: US Abortion Laws

Real Madrid regardless of last night. Hopefully Liverpool only lift the League Cup this season.

Re: The Elizabeth Line / Crossrail

Likewise, the £18bn + didn't all come from taxes generated in London. I'm not convinced that the best 'value for money' in terms of improving public transport and being 'great' for the country has come from spending that amount of money in London. The money has neither been spent exclusively on or ...
