  1. Year ago today that Claudio's 'dream died'

    Feels like an absolute age ago
  2. another school shooting

    What good is that when everyone is inside?
  3. President Trump & the USA

    Prompts are fine, but you've got to laugh/cry at a President who needs a reminder that his purpose in a meeting with families/survivors of a school shooting is that he "hears them".
  4. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Can you run for office please @leicsmac ..?
  5. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    I am all for challenging authority and power - I think it is our duty to question why these structures exist and not just take things for granted because our predecessors did. But I must say I think it is telling and sadly (as a left leaning voter) somewhat indicative of strongly left leaning voters that you paint this picture of those who don't agree with you or think the same way as wrong or stupid. You haven't used those words but subservient is hardly a compliment. We've all got out different motivations and for some people it is less about changing the world or "the greater good" and maybe a bit more about their own lives. I don't vote in that way but it is really that bad to think of yourself first? Maybe if everyone focused on bettering themselves and those around them and not spending time arguing with those they don't agree with, maybe we would all be a little bit better off. If PMQs was less about point scoring and more about engaging the other in useful debate maybe our MPs would get more done. You might think I'm talking irrelevant bollocks but I feel obliged to call out certain things in here when I can actually be arsed. And I'm inclined to think you might be a bit more willing to take some criticism from someone with a much more similar world view to you than if it were to come from say, Webbo or Matt.
  6. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    I'm with Trevor on this, no doubt his insight on it is fvcking spot on.
  7. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Really..? There's something I like about Corbyn but that sounds like delusional fanboy nonsense. He's clearly getting better (or being advised better) for press stuff but that video is a load of empty rhetoric and his overly emotive faces are dodgy as fvck. Corbyn gained a lot up to the election against a Tory leader widely considered to be shite but has completely and utterly failed to build on it at all, and that's in spite of the impending brexit which you are adamant is going to be an absolute disaster. I'm no fan of this government but from where I'm sitting Labour are just sitting around with their thumbs up their arses happy just to be involved. They should be rinsing May, Davis, Boris & co.
  8. So what does everybody actually look like?

    Reading this thread must be a similar experience to that of the the last bird I shagged - over very quickly but amazing while it lasted.
  9. Technology, Science and the Environment.

    The most frustrating thing for me is that we are still relatively speaking a minnow in the field of renewables when really we should be well up there. http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/costa-rica-renewable-energy-electricity-production-2016-climate-change-fossil-fuels-global-warming-a7505341.html The figures are a few years out of date but I don't think our relative position has changed all that much. The nimby effect is definitely partly responsible. My parents have moaned to me about the turbines between Groby (where they live) and Anstey and although I challenge the effect those 'eyesores' have on them, their opinions don't seem to change. I actually think there is something very elegant about wind turbines, but that is rather besides the point. There have been significant advances in the technology behind solar but as someone who works in the construction industry I'm actually not in favour of any sort of imposing solar as a condition for planning - it's counterproductive to force the issue without considering how appropriate or efficient it's going to be. The other issue is as with any other business, is that it incentivises shitheads who don't actually care and just want to make a quick buck - I have seen countless solar panels on roofs they really shouldn't be on. It might save some money but solar panels aren't actually that efficient at turning sunlight into energy and they soon get worse when you move away from the optimum pitch and vary too far towards East or West, and of course that obviously means your payback is worse too. I'm not a fan of those solar tiles, they're just more complicated, less efficient, more expensive and more likely to go wrong/get damaged. We really just need fields of the stuff, it's more efficient than every house having it's own small supply. Oh, and more use of combined solar-thermal where possible.
  10. Technology, Science and the Environment.

    We really need to be investing more in renewable energy infrastructure before we start crowing about how good electric cars are.

    Never realised you were a man of such faith, Rumble..
  12. The "do they mean us?" thread

    OP is largely pretty good I think but it's funny to think people are still holding onto the fact we "cheated" twice 15 years ago. Someone even suggested they would rather be in their situation having not cheated, than winning the league supposedly illegitimately. They have clearly forgotten we went to the lowest point we have ever been to as a club, and then spanked league 1 and the championship on our way to the great escape and our subsequent title win. I wonder why that isn't in the narrative..
  13. Did Burnley win the league? I must've missed that..
  14. Never mind that they stole a taxi, breaking curfew is the real issue here. Great stuff
