  1. No. The world’s economy is larger than the world’s largest economy.
  2. There are so many falsehoods and inaccuracies in there that it would take too long to refute them all but if you believe all this then it’s no wonder that you might have voted to leave.
  3. A good friend of mine at Cambridge worked for him in the early 70s and I asked him if Clive had a research and development section. “Yes”, he said, “himself”. Sadly my friend succumbed to prostate cancer in his mid thirties. I remember when he started in the 1960s selling small home electronics kits through sensationalistic adverts in the hobby magazines. They never worked as well as promised and it used to be said that he made his money from the kits that were thrown in the bin. His first wife used to help him pack the kits on their kitchen table and when they got divorced she succe
  4. Pity. That’s another to add to my list of lifetime disappointments.
  5. Do they take out the old version or just leave it in there? Asking for a friend.
  6. There are some Tories whose looks would be improved by wearing a medical mask.
  7. I was thinking more about size than age but the one advantage of getting old and being ignored is that you can say what you think 🤗
  8. What would the point of a lockdown be? So what if the infections run riot through the schools. So much the better. A fixation on the numbers of cases alone is a meaningless obsession unless the distribution of those cases is also considered. All that any attempts at suppression will do is spread this pandemic out for longer.
  9. Possibly, I hardly remember him
  10. For comparison I've just looked at how long our own youth products spent playing for the first team. Gareth Bale April 2006 to May 2007 Theo Walcott August 2005 to January 2006 Luke Shaw August 2012 to June 2014 So apart from giving us a profit when sold good young players are unlikely to be with us very long one way or another. Let's enjoy them whilst they are here.
  11. If we had bought him and he turns out to be fabulous then he would be gone next summer anyway. We are renting him for a season, hopefully to do a job for us.
  12. Exactly. Given the chance, would we have wanted Ronaldo for a year knowing that he might leave at the end of it?
  13. At the current rate of infections surely we must be starting to reach some sort of group immunity. There are around a million cases a month predominantly amongst the unvaccinated. Unless the figures for the population of the UK are grossly underestimated of course.
