Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

Dave O, I'm not going to copy, paste and quote, (in light of the new guidelines :) ) But you are confusing Poverty with Inequality. By your definition, if the UK suddenly got to a position where the average salary in todays terms was £1m a year, you would claim those on £100k were in "Poverty". An ...

Re: In focus: Paul Johnson

I sincerely wish PJ well in his new job. To be fair, he didn't write the article and he does say that they're doing things "slightly" differently. The way the piece reads seems to suggest that someone has come in after Mark Bitcon and is going to make a significant improvement on training and prepar...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

:mrgreen: o Poverty? By what criteria? Compared to 100 years ago there is no poverty in the UK. No-one dying through lack of food, which is not something that you could say back then. That was real poverty. Real Poverty in the UK today is non existant. Hardship and inequality? Absolutely. That said,...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

Sorry, I was clearly wrong on McDonnell. Let me make the point slightly differently: the majority of the shafow cabinet supported remain, and would not so ready go along with Corbyn without hope of a favourable outcome. I'm suggesting a more valid interpretation of Labour's approach is by looking at...

Re: widdup

We are some way behind the NRL and Union in terms of salary cap however that’s not IL’s fault, he’s spent the cap or close too it year on year. He’s in a lose lose with our fans, if he signs a big name ie FPN fans are frothing yet when it doesn’t work out they jump down his throat, he upgrades our ...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

Dave, I largely agree with you. I think Corbyn said he'd call for a vote of no confidence when they had best chance of winning, rather than when they could win. To be honest, I think a GE now would be a disaster for Labour, and I'm sure they know that. Talk of a vote of no confidence and GE is just ...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

But isn't there a contradiction in saying "Yes, Corbyn's right that poverty and inequality are the real issues" but then saying that he must engage more with Brexit? His problem is that he and Labour can do no more than they have done to influence what happens about Brexit. They are the opposition. ...

Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

From Jeremy Corbyn's speech in Wakefield today: We are now two and a half years on from the EU referendum and we are finally reaching the moment when the House of Commons will have its say on Theresa May’s Brexit deal. In those two and a half years many of the most pressing problems facing people in...

Re: widdup

Dave O: We have a club making a loss, a chairman who says we are cost cutting as a result and so has us signing championship players and not chasing world class players. So the losses are affecting the first team. Similar to what you said last year, Dave. It affected the first team so badly that we...
