    Ah, so "hostility" is alright if it's not the "pardners" under attack, eh?

    Please don't knock him. The man is a source of inspiration.

    Tim Farron has got to be the guy for the Liberal Democrats. Voted against tuition fees, and made a Tory safe seat into a Lib Dem base of operations. http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2015/may/14/tim-farron-to-stand-as-leader-of-the-liberal-democrats

    Drink?

    Well I must say, this is all looking very promising. However, we have all been lulled into a false sense of drinking security before. The inaugural meeting featured only three SaintsWeb members; had to bring Young Adult Unit #1 along to make up the numbers. If any of you are wavering, allow me to sway you with a stirring line or two that will force you into action. It's the last home game of the season. Get on it, you tarts. Henry II got nothing on me.

    I know Leigh well. I lived there for a year myself, and the missus has in-laws that live up that way. Love the people, but the town is a bit crap. You need a car (no train station), but the roads are crap. Lovely. Burnham has grown on me. Think the first time I saw him he was overly made up on QT. Not a great look.

    On topic, I quite like Burnham. Bit of a Northern tinge to the accent, which I actually think will be a benefit, slight blemish on the record, but came across very well during the Hillsborough revelations. Chuka is very articulate, but is a bit of a posh boy, and like Yvette Cooper, can also come across as something of a political robot. If the latter can come across with a wee bit more humanity, and engage the female vote, Labour could have a decent shout. Burnham has got an everyman quality about him that I like, and I think would do well in debates at PMQs.

    FFS, ant. Make this your plan. That's the problem with the youth of today. Too much indecision. Or is it?

    I don't think you're on solid ground with the Redknapp example. See, the term "díck" doesn't really have to mean "walking, enlarged penis". Actually, I'm not sure it means that either, but leaving that aside for a mo, it means different things. It can mean an unpleasant or an especially self-absorbed person, and 'Arry certainly fits the bill on one of those charges, at least. I'd actually disagree with btf's narrow definition. I think you've got to include wilful morons in that. Even so, I don't think Ed Miliband fits any definition of the term. Keep trucking tho', sir. I need a wee bit more material for the next thrilling encounter of SaintsWeb Batman.
  10. I've considered moving to Scotland! But yeah, if they move the border that'd be handy. It would be very interesting to see what sort of country would emerge from such a union. Completely biased opinion, but I always thought somewhere in the North West, particularly Liverpool, would have made a better capital for the purposes of holding the Union together. Full of people from all over the Union; shared heritage and respect. People moan about the Scots wanting out, but you only have to look at some of the comments made by our southern brethren to see why.

    The General Election has come to an end, the Tories are in and despite the hope of Farage disappearing into the political sunset, he's still around. He had to be, really. Still, we've two political parties without a permanent leader. Labour is obviously the more interesting contest; many candidates are starting to throw their hats into the ring. The Lib Dem contest is going to be amusing because they've got such a tiny Parliamentary party, and Clegg has got to be excluded from consideration. Who do we want/think they should be?
  12. Yawn. http://www.saintsweb.co.uk/showthread.php?54116-Top-5-on-SWF&p=2185242#post2185242
  13. I'd normally say don't be too hard on yourself. Normally. Look, dragging this back to the core of what got you all hot and bothered in the first place, I believe there are a couple of things you remarked upon. First, there is my hostility, which shows no sign of abating, I must admit. I'm not sure why you think you're on the correct side of the argument here. From the outset, I qualified exceptions, mostly holdovers from previous feuds, but sometimes, just the inevitable consequence of reading five pages of unbelievable jizz, and just wanting to make some, any, kind of f**king sense of it. So I wrote it down. Then there is "running away from the posts". It's amusing, because pretty much everything you ever write on here is unsubstantiated, shot from the hip and frequently climbed down from. I respect that a bit, especially the climb down part, because all too often, including now, we just get bickering that borders on trolling. It just doesn't leave you in great position to accuse others of doing the same thing. Especially when we're still here.
  14. Nah, not really. Thing is boys, after playing Champions League level forum-boarding with intelligent people, Conference South has lost its lustre. I know. I'm a modern football snob.
  15. Help. I'm being bullied by two of SaintsWeb's most popular posters. However will I cope?
