Hi Roger,  the Swatcats actually played much better in the second half and argueably deserved a draw.

TW - I saw the first half live on True 24 and thought the Swatcats played OK - although the goal looked like a Cunningham mistake ? How was the 2nd half ? Port are a strong side of course . . .

Dave checked into a swanky Hotel in Leicester Square and suddenly felt a little bit lonely. He thought, I'm gonna call one of those girls you see advertised in phone books like escorts and such. He picked up the phone book and found an ad for a beautiful girl calling herself Erogonique, she was lovely…and bending over in the photo. She had all the right curves in all the right places, long Blonde hair, and long graceful legs.....
Dave thought, what the hell, I’m going to give her a call.
"Hello," the woman said. Good god, she sounded really sexy thought Dave.
Afraid he would lose his nerve if he hesitated Dave rushed straight in. "Hi, my names Dave, and I see you give a great massage and I'd like for you to come to my room and give me one. No, wait…I should be straight with you. I'm in the City all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hard, I want it hot, and I want it now. Bring implements, toys, rubber, leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night; tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything and everything! Now, how does that sound?"
"That sounds fantastic Dave," she calmly replied, "but you need to press 9 for an outside line.…”

1. Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a little beverage, good food and companionship. She goes on Tuesdays, I go on Fridays.

2. We also sleep in separate beds. Hers is in California and mine is in Texas.

3. I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.

4. I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said. So I suggested the kitchen.

5. We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.

6. She has an electric blender, electric toaster and electric bread maker. She said "There are too many gadgets, and no place to sit down!" So I bought her an electric chair.

7. My wife told me the car wasn't running well because there was water in the carburetor. I asked where the car was. She told me, "In the lake."

8. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off.

9. She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, "Am I too late for the garbage?" The driver said, "No, jump in!".

10. Remember: Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.

11. I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her first name was 'Always'.

12. I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months. I don't like to interrupt her.

13. The last fight was my fault though. My wife asked, "What's on the TV?"
I said, "Dust!".
General Discussion / UK and the EU - a trade deal ?
« Last post by Roger on January 25, 2020, 07:27:15 AM »
Let battle commence - the UK has to put up with the unsufferable Philip Barnier again :-

"The EU seems intent on repeating the mistakes of the first phase of Brexit all over again. The last three years may have been chaotic for Britain, but it was not exactly a triumph for the EU either. Theresa May’s premiership was destroyed, the process strung out messily for a year longer than was necessary, and relations between the EU and its largest and most significant close neighbour soured for a generation. And for what? Barnier engineered a far harder Brexit – with the UK permanently out of the single market and the customs union, and with a government committed to Brexit elected with a thumping majority – than seemed remotely likely when we voted to leave back in 2016.

By overplaying his hand, and overestimating how much the UK needed the EU, Barnier stumbled into the worst possible outcome


"The Telegraph has learnt that France has insisted in closed door European Commission meetings that Britain must grant EU countries access to UK fishing waters for 25 years after Brexit if it wants a free trade agreement with Brussels."

From K-F 2017  . . .

"Sad to see that Sarah Champion MP, for Rotherham, has left her Shadow Cabinet position and retreated from what she said so clearly and accurately. The PC whirl dominates even those who fight it. I'd heard her talking on Radio 4 and was most impressed with her honesty. But now it seems she has been overwhelmed by a PC storm and retreated. . ."

''Writing in The Sun, Ms Champion said: "Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls. There. I said it. Does that make me a racist? Or am I just prepared to call out this horrifying problem for what it is ? For too long we have ignored the race of these abusers and, worse, tried to cover it up. No more. These people are predators and the common denominator is their ethnic heritage. We have to have grown-up conversations, however unpalatable, or in six months’ time we will be having this same scenario all over again."''


Today . . .

"We are often told that this is a complex issue. I think it’s horribly simple, actually. As Shaista Gohir of the Muslim Women’s Network told Newsnight last week: “Pakistan is one of the worst countries in the world to be a woman.” If you import Pakistan’s misogynistic attitudes into parts of the UK and they run straight into vulnerable young white girls who look, to a certain type of man, like easy meat, then you have a recipe for sexual abuse. Furthermore, if your authorities are afraid to confront and condemn those misogynistic attitudes for fear of appearing racist, then that sexual abuse can flourish on an industrial scale.

I agree with Maggie Oliver. After the scathing report into GMP was published, she demanded that criminal prosecutions be brought against those at the top of the police. Let the guilty men be named and shamed for leaving so many terrified girls at the mercy of their abusers. Meanwhile, hundreds of victims are suing seven councils and South Yorkshire Police for their part in the Rotherham scandal. Good for them.

Makes you want to scream doesn't it ? What a shambles, let's hope Priti Patel will tell it as it is and deal with it similarly !

A young Mick Jagger goes on holiday to Transylvania. Arriving late at Castle Bran the home of none other than Dracula. Its late and he lifts the heavy door knocker, the result being a resounding bang that reverberates throughout the Castle.
Mick hears bolts being drawn back and the doors slowly open with a spine chilling creak. Mick looks into the gloom and sees the tall, slender figure of Count Dracula himself. Ahhh Mr Jagger i am so pleased to meet you, but i am sorry you cannot come in.
Well says young Mick I've traveled a long way to meet you can you please explain why that is.
Because, answers the Count, his blood red eyes glinting in the moonlight, because, BECAUSE you cannot get blood out of a Stone.
