  1. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/may/02/tavistock-trust-whistleblower-david-bell-transgender-children-gids This guy gives a good account of the issues relating to vulnerable children. The stuff about pro nouns, clothes, changing rooms, toilets etc i'm fine with. If adults want to have surgery and hormones then fair enough. The fact that this topic is dominating our national politics despite the fact that there is no set definition of gender or gender dysmorphia is something I find a bit strange. I'm in double figures in down votes on that post and not one person has replied with an answer to what gender dysmorphia is.
  2. It has to be something and there aren't many options.
  3. I don't see Rennie taking and I don't think he's suited to just working with the players in the Test windows. At Glasgow he got a lot of out the guys who were always there and very little out of the players who were in and out of camp to join up with Scotland.
  4. That's how Gosling plays every scene in the film.
  5. I'll believe it when I see it. UK Gov/BoE predictions are usually made for political reasons.
  6. I'm smart enough not to give a f**k what gas spot prices are in Amsterdam because that makes zero difference to my bills. Our bills will not come down and the energy support scheme will be phased out.
  7. The guy who gets paid to making losing arguments at the Supreme Court for Sturgeon will be looking at second homes in the south of France tonight.
  8. @Todd_is_God I'm sure there will be a letter coming through my door any day now telling me my tariff is coming down?
  9. There is no chance of food or energy prices going back down.
  10. The article does say at the end they want to create a new planning category between residential and fixed caravans. Trailer park owners in America make a fortune and it's probably something that is inevitable here given where we are politically.
  11. White Noise (2022) A shite and fairly pointless adaptation of the Delillo novel. It's probably a better watch if you've not read the book. Why anyone thought it was a good idea for Noah Baumbach to direct this is beyond me. It ends with a completely forgettable new LCD Soundsytem song is unintentionally the only part of the film that channels the book.
  12. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2023/jan/15/priced-out-uk-house-hunters-turn-to-lorry-sized-tiny-homes Trailer Parks but for hipsters. These are my favourite genre of articles where the media takes something dystopian - in this case living in rented wooden box in a field - and tries to make it sound aspirational. The guy who grew up in a 7 bedroom Victorian villa, works 6 days driving a lorry and can't afford to buy a one bedroom flat so he's spending 30 grand on a wooden trailer to park it on "land his parents own" seems totally legit....
  13. And that's how to use VAR to fix football matches. The title race will go to the final day.
