Re: General Election 2019

It is the same with this £10 an hour minimum wage. OK, sounds good if you are on less, but a small business with say 3-4 employees may just be stopped from taking another person on board because they simply can't manage £10 from what the company earned, thus they can't fulfill orders thus go bust, ...

I never felt tired & was fully awake for the whole journey.. I'm sure the guy who caused the Selby train crash thought he wasn't tired and was fully awake. Your reactions and decision making are impaired when you haven't slept regardless of whether you feel tired or not. Professional drivers are su...

Re: Rugby League

I drove down to the South of France & back 950 miles each way & both legs driven in 24hrs, going down I had 10mins sleep & on the way back 1hrs sleep. I kept awake on both legs & felt fine when the journeys had finished. This is nothing to brag about - in fact it is downright dangerous. Anyone who ...

Re: Democracy under threat.

16 & 17 year olds can vote in the Scottish and Welsh parliamentary elections but not in the UK General Election. Therefore not a totally English decision.

If you think Switzerland has no hard borders with the EU, please take a goods vehicle from Stuttgart to Zurich (or vice versa) via the Thayngen border crossing and then tell me there are no hard borders berween Switzerland and the EU.

I wanted to hear him. Didn't care whether he gave us money. I wanted him to stand up and tell the 'full' story that he keeps saying we don't know. Face the fans and explain why he did what he did.
Then leave and never darken the doors of our club again.
