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

Economic assumptions can be disputed as they are often proved to be wrong. What can't be disputed is the evidence that we will be massively worse off trading outside the EU than in it. The quitters have never made an economic assumption as they don't want to know nor anyone to know the figures. They...

Re: Wigan vs Wakefield

The attack was far faster and more fluent with Sammut at scrum half. He also has a proper kicking game and uses it well to control the game. Our game management was best of the season so far. Farrell transforms the left side when he plays. His three tries were well deserved for the effort and creati...

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

This afternoon the HoC amended a Bill which will almost certainly stop the new PM from proroguing Parliament to effect a No Deal. 17 Tories voted against with 30 abstaining. So Boris has been defeated before he comes into 10 Downing St. So March 29th has come and gone and we are still in the EU. The...

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

Just seen a piece on Ch4 news about the Brecon by election. The Tory is telling farmers that they will be compensated in the event of a No Deal Brexit. Like a true Brexiter he just doesn't get it that farmers don't want compensation when their farms and businesses are wiped out. They don't want thei...

Re: HUll game moved to Thursday 1st August.

If they want to move fixtures then they should give us more notice.
A month's notice should be the absolute minimum.

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

2015 I got 1.40 euro when I paid the hotel bill in Portugal. At 1.2 euro it is a straight 20% devaluation. The pound is still devaluing on a daily basis. The money people say a No Deal and the pound will go through the floor with less than parity with the Euro and almost that with the US Dollar. We ...

Re: Referee for Thursday

Hicks is tolerable I find, just. Childs is truly dreadful and in quite a few games has cost teams a win with his dreadful decisions. Agree that some of these lesser known refs have been quite ok this past few weeks. Perhaps when they are on tv they get specific instructions from their senior on how ...

Re: 19-man squad vs Wakefield

I like Escare and wish Lam would play him. I'm not convinced with Lam as coach either. However I do not want Wigan to lose under any circumstances and to suggest that I or any Wigan supporter is "pleased" with a defeat for any reason is a very long way away from reality.
