Crikey - there is to be a debate in HoC about the Govt. being in contempt of Parliament for refusing to release the full advice of the Attorney General on the 'Backstop'. Geoffrey Cox the AG, gave a spirited defence of his position . . . .  The Guardian comments :-

''Geoffrey Cox is wasted in politics. He should be on the stage. The man was born to act. If you don’t believe me, listen to his voice. Or should I say his VOICE! His VOICE, gentle reader! Listen to it BOOM, BOOM like the deepest CANYON! Hear it RISE and then FALL, like the mightiest SEA! Hear it rumble, rumble like a distant thunder – and then ROAR, ROAR like a towering STORM! That VOICE, O my reader, O my most cherish’d reader! So DEEP, so RICH, so SONOROUS with MAJESTY! Why! It makes Brian BLESSED sound like Frank SPENCER!''

The EU appear to be more concerned with being vindictive and punishing the UK than they do in being friendly, reasonable, respectful or even mindful of their own interests. After the resignation of Sam Gyimah, more from Airbus over the Galileo farce :-

''The chief executive of Airbus has warned that the UK's departure from the €10bn (£8.9bn) European Galileo satellite project is a “serious blow to the EU’s common security and defense ambition.” “Don’t those talking about a ‘European army’ know that the UK is one of only two serious military powers in Europe?" Tom Enders tweeted on Monday.

Galileo is Europe's global navigation satellite system designed to be a rival to the US GPS system. It will not only support mobile phones and satnavs but also provide vital location information for the military and businesses
.''

The sad thing IMO is that such disorder could easily take place in other European countries - the immediate cause is thought to be Macron's fuel taxes but the persistent growth of inequality is thought to be motivating or 'providing the excuse' for extremists.

Macron wants to talk to the Leaders - I've heard comment that they might be hard to find. Where is Mr Facebook and Mrs Twitter ? It's a big problem. Vive La France !

Earlier in this thread . . .

''The FA has drawn up proposals to deal with Brexit under which the allowance of non-homegrown players in the 25-man squads would be reduced from 17 to 13, and will pursue that course regardless.''

Is that enough ? Gareth Southgate with some pertinent comment :-

''The shortage of homegrown players in the Premier League, which hit record lows this past weekend, is “incredible” and “a conundrum we have to solve” according to the England manager, Gareth Southgate. In the 14th round of fixtures which took place this weekend only 54 players eligible to play for England started in the top flight. This was down from the previous week, which itself had been a record low.''

I'm guessing that most of us have some respect for Sir David and I wonder how this might affect the thinking of non-believers and if Pres. Trump is following the story . . .

''The collapse of civilisation and the natural world is on the horizon, Sir David Attenborough has told the UN climate change summit in Poland. The naturalist was chosen to represent the world’s people in addressing delegates of almost 200 nations who are in Katowice to negotiate how to turn pledges made in the 2015 Paris climate deal into reality.

As part of the UN’s people’s seat initiative, messages were gathered from all over the world to inform Attenborough’s address on Monday. “Right now we are facing a manmade disaster of global scale, our greatest threat in thousands of years: climate change,” he said. “If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon
.”''

“joke of the day”.......I think you should have put this thread under that title.

Yes, that might have been a good headline, had I known in advance how the judges scored.

On my own humble scorecard I had Fury by two points. And that was by giving even rounds to Wilder, since he is the champ.

The result has not only cause debate in UK, also in Denmark there was quite a debate on the sports pages.
