    That's a lot of pressure on despite winning. It's not a margin where the ERG are going to go away and be nice. I'm off to cry at missing the easiest 1/2 shot I can remember in the betting.

    The Rodney Parade Experience - Wrexham AFC

    It's a shithole, but in my experience it's actually a pretty good night out. When I left my hotel last year I asked the landlord if he wanted me to put a review on TripAdvisor and he just said "couldn't give a shit". His daughter was on reception with two phones sticking our her bra as well. Strange folk, but pleasant.

    Well those involved in it disagree with you, I'm not really sure how much more evidence you need than the captains of both the ships involved in it. The Argentine Navy have even accepted this now and I'm surprised to hear this opinion being pushed with the evidence that is available to us now. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/defence/8965405/Belgrano-was-heading-to-the-Falklands-secret-papers-reveal.html If you hate Thatcher that's fine, but it's not OK to smear people who were risking their lives at the time as liars just because you do, the sinking of the Belgrano was a legitimate act of war and the courts have backed that up since it. Seven years and 35 days.

    What's the lie?

    I think that's terrible, the people of the Falklands are British and under our care, the idea we would stand back and allow them to be subjected to the Junta is horrible. When did Thatcher lie as well? The Captain of the Belgrano has since admitted what she said as I posted.

    They didn't keep thrmselves hidden at the ballot box though did they? More Scots voted for her than any other Tory leader since. If they kept themselves well hidden in public they were obviously fearful which is quite terrible in a liberal, democratc society where everybody should be free to express their political views. As for the Falklands, it probably was convenient politically for her, but she didn't start it, the Argentines invaded and you couldn't seriously have left the people there to be under the occupation of the Argentine Junta, who were already well known to have committed some pretty terrible human rights atrocities. The Falkland Islanders have made it quite clear what they want and we should continue to uphold that. As for the Belgrano - that myth has long since passed and the captain of it has admitted as such - https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2003/may/25/uk.world

    Who do you want January 2019

    Loftus Cheek and Rashford? Are people being serious. We had absolutely no chance of signing these sort of players when we won the league, let alone now.

    I'd imagine she plays for a much as time as possible and tries to bring the vote back as late as possible. I think it's her intention to get to a point where it's her deal or no deal - whether she can or not we'll see. It makes the job easier though if the party can't remove her.

    Thatcher won 13 seats in Scotland, the Tories hadn't got close to that number until last year when they won 11. Thatcher was very divisive, but just like Blair, a lot of the hate came from very vocal people - you don't win three elections unless you are pretty popular on the whole. She won quite a few in Wales in 79' as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1979_United_Kingdom_general_election#/media/File:UK_General_Election,_1979.svg
