    Brexit explained (specifically for Ryan)

    I am sure they would be most interested in reading all the details about EU directives of weighing machines . sound level of vehicle exhaust systems etc There is a lot of minutae in the document. You do not have to read it all to establish it does not meet the objectives of Brexiteers https://ec.europa.eu/commission/sites/beta-political/files/draft_withdrawal_agreement_0.pdf

    Paul Gascoigne

    Gascoigne's nomination to the Scottish football Hall of Fame earlier this year was withdrawn in October. Organisers at the time said it was due to "ongoing enquiries and concerns over the state of Paul's health". The "Ongoing enquiries" are being confirmed today. Is it really "News in the public interest" though?

    Brexit explained (specifically for Ryan)

    If you were reading an over 500 page contract and after the first few it had already said you were agreeing to a lot of conditions that you were not prepared to agree with would you really carry on reading it?

    Have a google. Because I would be wasting my time, because you will find an excuse to say it's not un-biased. You even question the United Nations. But what about the NHS reports can we trust them? "According to new analysis of NHS data from surveys taken in 2007 and 2014, nearly half of people surveyed on out-of-work disability benefits said in 2014 that they had attempted to take their own lives. Results from the 2007 survey – taken a year before the controversial work capability assessment (WCA) test began – show 21 per cent of incapacity benefit claimants had attempted suicide, meaning the proportion more than doubled in seven years" It is not a big stretch of the imagination to suggest that four years later some may be succeeding is it? .Also The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) said the Government’s reforms of welfare payments were to blame for the rise, as benefit cuts and sanctions “are having a toxic impact on mental health”.

    I can only think from your recent posts that we live on different Planets. Government Policies are working? Public services aren't crumbling? (49% cuts to local councils) Suicides have not risen since 2010 (67% amongst young people) ? We will have to just stop discussing it and i'll shut my curtains :~)

    Rock, Paper, Scissors.

    I presume in your whistle scenario the Referee was asking before he had entered the field of play :~) i.e. Realised in the dressing room he had no whistle and asked the crowd. This referee in ths case must not have realised until he went to get it in the centre circle, otherwise someone could have lent him 10p., hence the punishment.

    You can read the full statement (Not just the media editorial) here https://ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?LangID=E&NewsID=23881 It's a disgrace what this Government are doing and there is no comparisons to Africa or Yemen in it to be honest.
