  1. Irrelevant with respect to your argument. You want to stop something you don't approve of, you have yet to clarify what sort of sports you are happy with, and which you want banned, and what non-sporting activities should also be banned on your "everest" scale
  2. ...except if it's something you approve of doing, like driving a car?
  3. Nope. Do you go mountain climbing? Hill walking? Swimming? Boxing? Rugby?
  4. Do you guys sit at home in the dark, doing nothing? Doing things is dangerous, some moreso than others. So no sports of any kind is your idea? No roads, wouldn't want cars going around eh? Nor horses, lot of people killed by/falling off horses. How about walking? Easy to trip, bang your head, and bingo!
  5. For people involved, absolutely, for people not involved and with no interest, not in the least I'd have thought?
  6. I'd have thought nothing surely? People enjoy the races, the racers know the risks. If you don't enjoy them go do your thing instead.
  7. Aye this. Anyone know why the previous trio have been replaced?

    It's most obvious in Scotland, the Dundee episode was where it reached it's nadir, when there was scarcely a Scottish accent on the show, never mind local. And of the five big cities Dundee is by far the one with the least immigration of English. Yet full of Tories, NO voters (Dundee/Angus has always been the most SNP area in Scotland) and leavers. Then there's the UKIP chap from Glasgow who has on two separate occasions in the last couple of years, not just made it into the studio, but been able to ask questions also. Good on him you'd say, except most of us try and fail to even be an invited audience member, never mind ask questions, in a country where around 1% were voting UKIP. It's stinky
  9. Two things. The Daily Mail headline was the very next day after their "bullying" headline of the previous day. It's got to be stopped, now that Tories are being targetted. Was fine though when it was judges, Gina Miller, SNP MPs/MSPs, or Labour politicians.
  10. Last night it was voting down amendment 158 of the Scotland Act Today it's Mayhem's brexit nuttery getting voted down. I refer the forum to post #1
  11. I don't know, do you? I assume breakeven means exactly that. If they mean break even on wages and costs then yes you'd be right. But is that the case, I suspect you don't know that any more than I do.
  12. No, if they were getting food at less than break even, it's subsidised, if it's running at break even then by definition it clearly isn't subsidised, it's just cheap in comparison to open market values
  13. Have to say of all the documentaries and theories there's been, this one was the most convincing, especially as it finally made sense regarding the way pieces of JFK flew off his person.
  14. and this.... https://www.thecanary.co/2017/05/25/31-seconds-footage-come-back-haunt-theresa-may-manchester-bombing-video/
  15. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/jeremy-corbyns-leaked-manifesto-policies-get-thumbs-up-from-voters-in-latest-poll_uk_59158094e4b0031e737cc6ef?gar Thumbs up from Joe Public
  16. By the Tories. They're the ones who put in multiple layers of administrators & manager instead of funding nurses, doctors and facilities.
  17. Every country has a health service, they all have (or would cash depending) the same functions and requirements, more or less. The only reason the NHS is screwed is because the tories won't fund it, tho are happy to fund Trident. Priorities. Bad ones at that
  18. Which probably says an awful lot about your views tbh. She's as right wing as they come, way over there beyond a UKIP right wing.
