  1. Presidential Debate - Trump vs Clinton

    I've stayed up to watch this (will pay for it in the morning :greengrin) Trump is horrific (he comes across as drunk and it's difficult to make out what point he's trying to make at times) and Clinton is playing it steady, but it's easy to see how he will appeal to a lowest common denominator. ...

  8. Tory party leadership

    So we are down to 3 and close to the point where 150 thousand (very) odd crusty Tories get to choose not only our prime minister but also our future relationship with the EU. Democracy's great eh? Anyway, I have to say (for as far as I'm aware the first time) that I agree with Malcolm Rifkind:...

    As much as I don't like it and I voted against it. Are we about to see the British government step in and do what's right for the country. And what does that say for democracy in our country.

  19. Honours for Olympians

    What a pile of pish. These elite athletes are given around 28k a year to let them train and practice their hobby full time. Most of them fail so why should the successful ones be honoured as well as now being able to financially capitalise on what they've achieved on the back of our money?...
