RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

Good game, but full of errors.

You deserved it for some moments of sheer class.

I have no problem with this if, say, the Louvre followed the same policy...and the Vatican museum, the Museo del Prado, the Rijksmuseum...

RE: Heather Couper RIP

Her big break came when she was asked to appear as a guest on Sir Patrick Moore's The Sky At Night.

Sir Patrick later recalled: "Of course, she wrote to me when she was a little girl and said, 'Is there any future for me in astronomy?' And I said, 'Of course there is.' And I tried to give her a hand."

Nice to see...

Memories of my younger days, clearly...come into my mind...

So in my 52nd year, I now find out that I'll become a Grandad twice within a few months of each other.

So that's nice...

RE: [VIDEO] Billie Eilish picked to perform next Bond Theme.

Finally listened to it from the BBC website.

Not bad, not really my cup of tea, but I felt it could have gone up a notch with the bombast earlier to be more effective and memorable.  All very earnest though...

If that's truly the case, how come HS2 which he hates?  

Always good for the opposition to have bogeymen like Cummings, Gavin Barwell (who?), Alistair Campbell and Seamus Milne but the buck always stops with the leader - as it should.

"He's done amazing."

Agreed.  My understanding is that only Liverpool have picked up more points since Christmas, not sure how accurate that is.

I like him.  He's calm and seems to have a decent rapport with Big Dunc.  He's ambitious but is willing to take the time left until the summer to properly assess his squad rather than make panic buys in January.

Interesting is one descriptor...

"So, our Chancellor of The Exchequer, responsible for the country's financial and economic performance, resigns and is replaced by someone who was a junior housing minister seven months ago."

Personally I think it's a good move.  Boris is trying to make fundamental changes to the way things are down, including trying to ensure that the Treasury don't put unnecessary blockers on his attempt to do this and release funds for Northern infrastructure in particular.  Part of that was a combined No. 10/Treasury team of advisors so that there was no conflicting narrative, which Javid seemingly opposed.

Time will tell, however...

Good news for Evertonians everywhere:

Also, some great goals here as well as both dodgy and superb keeping from Pickford:

RE: [VIDEO] Parasite Best Picture 2020

It would be good if we see more foreign films being nominated, and if we can nominate foreign films then let's see foreign actors in the mix as well as all the other categories.

It's not the only film industry by any means, but a lot of my favourite films over the last couple of decades have been Asian...

RE: [VIDEO] Parasite Best Picture 2020

As much as I appreciate good foreign films and sure from what I've seen in print so far, that it is a deserving winner, it kind of came out of nowhere.

Was this fixed to rehabilitate the Oscars in some way?

RE: The Trump Presidency

And also...much ado about nothing really, but lots of people think this was a pre-planned stunt...which makes her attempt at a handshake initially even more disingenuous than it was after attempting to impeach him...



This will seriously feed directly into his narrative, so all I can assume is that the Democrats are attempting to align with Labour in the UK and are happy to just be a party of protest rather than a party in power...

Really?  How does that explain the 2016 popular vote count then?

Trump: 62,984,828
Clinton: 65,853,514
