Thought Id start this one going because its rather dead on this board at the moment and I suppose all my usual muckers are either at the Stella tennis event watching Dim Tim (lose again) or at Henly Regatta eating cucumber sandwiches (they wish,...NOT).

Anyway please feel free to just talk to yourself blast away and let it go on any company or subject you wish. Just wish Id thought of this one before.

cheers GF.

Horray for chaos.

Stupidity is as mighty as the sword.

Long live the winners.

F the losers.

Ok this ain't funny , which one of you pushed the looney off the cliff ???

Meanwhile back in the real world is it just me or does anyone else think by Putin sticking the equivalent of the Russians chuckle brothers on TV he is just sticking two fingers up to the west and saying yes we did it but what are/can you do about it ?

Salisbury Carhedral a worldwide known landmark ??? Feck me , half the UK at least don't know where the bloody hell Salisbury is !

In fairness Putin has got a sense of humour.

Who wouldn't travel all the way from Russia to clock this? So good it is worth seeing twice. If it goes missing, we know who to blame.

Dudley Sutton's career as an actor is quite fascinating:

Anthony Joshua versus Alexander Povetkin boxing:

What TV channel will it be on?
The fight is being shown on Sky Box Office in the UK, which is on channel 491 for standard definition and channel 492 for high definition.

How much will it cost to watch?
It will be £19.95, with a £5 increase for telephone bookings made today, being the day of the fight, totting up to a total of £24.95

Hmmm? I'm a fan but that does sound a bit steep for watching this on TV. Povetkin is a decent challenger but these things sometimes last only a few rounds.

Well done, Beckham, for picking a really good 'I'll get you off' lawyer for your speeding thingy.

I see that Jeremy Corbyn wants to get rid of the Gekko's of this world ….Ken Livingstone better hide that Gekko pet thing of his if JC comes calling.....

Come to True Tory Love Island in Birmingham.

Both adverts from a previous period.

below voting intentions are interesting, but more so is the comment below it .......

Party conference season is sometimes a period of volatile polling – each party typically gets its own week of media coverage which, if all goes well, they’ll use for some positive announcements. This year it also immediately followed the Salzburg summit and Theresa May’s Brexit statement that followed. Below are the voting intention polls since my last update.

YouGov (18-19th) – CON 40%, LAB 36%, LDEM 11%, UKIP 5% (tabs)
Opinium (18-20th Sep) – CON 37%, LAB 39%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 8% (tabs)
BMG (21st-22nd Sep) – CON 38%, LAB 38%, LDEM 10%, UKIP 4% (tabs)
ICM (21st-24th Sep) – CON 41%, LAB 40%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 4% (tabs)
YouGov (24-25th Sep) – CON 42%, LAB 36%, LDEM 11%, UKIP 4% (tabs)
ComRes (26-27th Sep) – CON 39%, LAB 40%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 5% (tabs)
Opinium (26-28th Sep) – CON 39%, LAB 36%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 6% (tabs)
BMG (28-29th Sep) – CON 35%, LAB 40%, LDEM 12%, UKIP 5%

They are a mixed bunch – the YouGov poll showing a six point Tory lead got some attention, and I’m sure the BMG poll out this morning showing a five point Labour lead will do much the same. As ever, it’s wrong to pay too much attention to outliers. Normal sample variation means that if the underlying average is a Tory lead of a point or two, random noise will occassionally spit out a 6 point Tory lead or a small Labour lead, without it actually signifying anything. Collectively recent polls don’t suggest a clear impact on voting intention from either the Salzburg statement (while YouGov showed a larger Tory lead, ICM did not), or from the Labour party conference (while BMG show an increased Labour lead, Opinium showed the opposite).

I really don't think Boris is going to topple the PM, not enough support......the EU without saying so are probably desperate for a deal of some sort.....could go either way....

cynic - 01 Oct 2018 15:26 - 81236 of 81541

i am sure a deal will be fudged somehow as it would be pretty disastrous for both sides if otherwise, but equally neither side can be seen to be losing face

how the next GE will turn out is anyone's guess
no one knows how many voters will be gulled by the lies broadcast by either side

Just a mention of the passing of a great singer "Charles Aznavour"....those who are perhaps not familiar should listen to : "Comme ils disent"....the paroles and interpretation are sensational !....
