"Highway to Hull"? Or "The Road to Hull" or "Bat Out of Hull"...

Re: Tennis

Raducanu has done British tennis all wrong. Did no one tell her she's supposed to spend years getting everyone's hopes up only to fall short? The media haven't had chance to dissect her social media history yet. What's this winning a major as soon as you appear on the scene all about? :D

Re: Tennis

Who knows what the future will hold for Emma Raducanu, but the start to her career is the sort of stuff you normally only get in dodgy Hollywood sport movies.

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

Have you become so indoctrinated you're trying to rewrite history? You keep mentioning cars, I'm sure you'll recall the incentives to get people to switch from petrol to supposedly less polluting diesel vehicles, only for that to be a well publicised mistake? That's a perfect example of "urgent...

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

:shrug: I've no idea what you think the word urgent means, certainly not the usual definition. "We need urgent intervention" "We've been intervening for the last 40 years" "Yes, but that wasn't urgent enough" You literally cannot get more urgent than what has already ha...

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

Simply putting a measuring I place doesn't mean something is being done "urgently". There has been precisely nothing done urgently over climate change - look at the windows for targets etc, still more than 20 years off. It's about as urgent as my builder.... Well if you were calling for &...

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

Yes it supports the notion that the actions are ineffective, but that's very different from everyone "urgently intervening", your initial statement. :shrug: It's literally all part of the same thing, you seem to be confusing "urgent" with "effective". :whoosh: Governme...

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

All of which supports the notion that the actions taken have been largely ineffective, possibly even adding to the issue. More blind meddling could lead to further adverse effects. But as I said that's the unpopular view, the vogue is to believe we have all the answers and try to rewrite history tha...

Brereton scored the penalty too. :hyper:
Are we not calling him Diaz now? I quite like it, reminds me of Cameron.
Why does it remind you of David Cameron? :shrug:

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

Just noticed we need to change the title of this thread to thegreatweatherextremeswindle. :lol: Have any of our views on this altered at all with the escalation in scientific evidence regarding urgent intervention required to combat man-made climate change? It seems to me that we've been urgently i...

Re: Olympics Thread

Well you seem to be at odds with the actual officials, who took quite a while to decide what to do about the result, and recorded GB's time even though you're insisting there was none since the race was over. Race Distance: 4000m - Progression: The winners of heats 3 and 4 in the First Round ride th...

Re: Olympics Thread

So Blackbat, why did it take so long to confirm the result if it was such a clear cut decision? Why did former Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman keep saying in the commentary that GB still needed to complete their laps and set a time to qualify for the bronze medal race? Why did the official Olympic re...

Re: Olympics Thread

Bonkers track cycling rules coming to the fore again yesterday. If anyone missed it, Denmark and GB were up against each other for the chance to get into the gold medal race in the team pursuit. GB lost their formation, and were caught by Denmark. But instead of overtaking, the lead Danish rider plo...

Re: England Squad

I've got to agree with Blackbat, we were very much like old England sides; preoccupied with what everyone else is going to do at the expense of developing a gameplan that works to our strengths; leaving out our most skillful potential match winners for reliably average workhorses. The teams that reg...
