  1. No, Mac, you're wrong. One of the fundamental reasons cited by transition males to females is the ability to gain access to female changing rooms and toilets. Sure you have to undergo a little bit of surgery, change your entire life and take a couple of drugs, but boy is it worth it.
  2. There are plenty of arguments that can be made against Labour's Free Broadband proposal, but I think I've read the most ridiculous. A former Government employee claiming that it 'makes a mockery of life-dependent human rights, like freedom of religion'. This coming from a party who's notable supporters once took a claim to the European Courts about the Hunting Act 2004 being an infringement on their Freedom of Assembly and their basic human rights.
  3. Dear Liberal Elite of Foxestalk,
  4. Still really love the Harvey Barnes cross for Vardy against Burnley. Bloody love a deep cross, me.
  5. I'm pretty sure she's not a billionaire, due in part to paying so much tax and giving so much away to charity.
  6. Absolutely, I guess you don't pick who you are attracted to in a fanboy fashion. His controversy probably draws me to him even more, most of my icons are in a similar fashion. When you consider what the likes of Stormzy and co get berated for nowadays, it's probably for the best that he was around when he was. Also, as tragic as the murder was, from a selfish perspective I'm glad he didn't grow into an old racist like Morrissey!
  7. He was once a client at my old firm and, somewhat ashamedly, I had no idea who he was.
  8. I agree on the name, but absolutely not on the band being overrated. The band name is effectively a crap pun. It's got nothing on something like The Smiths which encapsulates so much about the working class, mundane, existence that the band played on. On the theme of The Beatles, I would say John Lennon gets an easy ride for what was quite a controversial life. I love the man and his work, but the drugs, assault, questionable political work would be torn into if he were around today.
  9. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/rangers-tax-case-hmrc-blamed-for-downfall-of-club-qs9306kht Some claims being banded about the Rangers overpaid the tax bill by £50m.
  10. I'm Gandhi, only slightly more libertarian and anarchic. Gandhi with a vengeance. Some of those questions were definitely written between a mixture of Jim Davidson and Jacob Rees Mogg.
  11. I've always preferred Jerusalem because I find it more in keeping with 'Britishness', but then I have no religious interest so that's a dilemma in itself! Or, as the liberal that I am, I would go with something like this:- I rode out on a bright May morning like a hero in a song, Looking for a place called England, trying to find where I belong. Couldn't find the old flood meadow or the house that I once knew; No trace of the little river or the garden where I grew. I saw town and I saw country, motorway and sink estate; Rich man in his rolling acres, poor man still outside the gate; Retail park and burger kingdom, prairie field and factory farm, Run by men who think that England's only a place to park their car. But as the train pulled from the station through the wastelands of despair From the corner of my eye a brightness filled the filthy air. Someone's grown a patch of sunflowers though the soil is sooty black, Marigolds and a few tomatoes right beside the railway track. Down behind the terraced houses, in between the concrete towers, Compost heaps and scarlet runners, secret gardens full of flowers. Meeta grows her scented roses right beneath the big jets' path. Bid a fortune for her garden—Eileen turns away and laughs. So rise up, George, and wake up, Arthur, time to rouse out from your sleep. Deck the horse with sea-green ribbons, drag the old sword from the deep. Hold the line for Dave and Daniel as they tunnel through the clay, While the oak in all its glory soaks up sun for one more day. Come all you at home with freedom whatever the land that gave you birth, There's room for you both root and branch as long as you love the English earth. Room for vole and room for orchid, room for all to grow and thrive; Just less room for the fat landowner on his arse in his four-wheel drive. For England is not flag or Empire, it is not money, it is not blood. It's limestone gorge and granite fell, it's Wealden clay and Severn mud, It's blackbird singing from the May tree, lark ascending through the scales, Robin watching from your spade and English earth beneath your nails. So here's two cheers for a place called England, sore abused but not yet dead; A Mr Harding sort of England hanging in there by a thread. Here's two cheers for the crazy diggers, now their hour shall come around; We shall plant the seed they saved us, common wealth and common ground. Can't quite see Harry Maguire and co belting that out for some reason
  12. That is interesting, my history knowledge from that period isn't overly great. If it's not modern history, the Tudors, Greeks or Romans then I'm not overly well versed. Looking further at this article - https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofBritain/Rule-Britannia/ - it seems to suggest that we were actively trying to expand, rather than defend, and began to colonize:- The first public performance of ‘Rule, Britannia!’ was in London in 1745, and it instantly became very popular for a nation trying to expand and ‘rule the waves’. Indeed, from as early as the 15th and 16th centuries, other countries’ dominant exploratory advances encouraged Britain to follow. This was the Age of Discovery, in which Spain and Portugal were the European pioneers, beginning to establish empires. This spurred England, France and the Netherlands to do the same. They colonised and set up trade routes in the Americas and Asia. Additionally, this article suggests that it was actually a protest song against George II https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/theroyalfamily/9260167/Rule-Britannia-was-Royal-revolt-song-against-King-George-II.html
  13. Yeah it's sort of like when Forest play Derby, you wonder if there is a rule somewhere that both sides can lose and be liquidated as a result. Precisely my point. I don't have a firm foot in either camp outside of thinking it's a little outdated, but these things should be considered even if the outcome is a resounding no.
  14. That's sort of my point, surely both should receive equal weight. Either both are ignored because they have an agenda, or both should respected/acknowledged.
