  1. Boxing Thread

    Browne Ko Chisora Ko.
  2. Rugby - Union And League

    Sarries playing pragmatic rugby and Munster are hanging in. With Skelton and Burger on the bench Sarries should pull away late on.
  3. The normalisation of the far-right continues

    It's completely obvious he hasn't read any of the people he has set up as bogeymen. Shuja Haider's response to him is a good read https://www.viewpointmag.com/2018/01/23/postmodernism-not-take-place-jordan-petersons-12-rules-life/ Peterson's jump to fame is probably just down to lots of men in the media being delighted to have someone put a veener of respectability on old fashioned sexism. I saw this for the first time this morning, the guy is a moron.
  4. When will indyref2 happen?

    Have you got any non emoji based thoughts on the SNP's fiscal policy?
  5. The normalisation of the far-right continues

    Some people are suggesting that he was Googling Zizek's topics on stage. It's absolutely perfect that the right wing poster boy knows genuinely nothing. It's probably down to the fact that all the serious right wingers are too busy asset stripping Africa and Latin America to be internet sensations but surely they could do better?
  6. When will indyref2 happen?

    The Growth Commision plan does mean permanent austerity. We are already in a state of austerity and following the GC policy will require further spending cuts. The 6 tests will never be met as they are currently constituted. It would leave us in a position where we have no control over our interest rate, no ability to use QE and completely beholden to credit markets who would set a high cost of borrowing whilst demanding ever more neoliberal reforms. A country without control over it's currency is not an independent country.

    Aside from the fact that Darling didn't cut spending as Chancellor do you realise it is 2019?
  8. When will indyref2 happen?

    That's not really a good description of the 2017 Labour manifesto.
  9. When will indyref2 happen?

    Labour are aiming to end austerity. The SNP plans mean permanent austerity.
  10. When will indyref2 happen?

    Neoliberal Nic pushing the RBS line. The SNP have created a policy position which they hope will trick voters into thinking that they are pro an independent currency while the banks know the truth that they aren't.
  11. The normalisation of the far-right continues

    The Peterson vs Zizek debate actually happened last night. Apparently Peterson hadn't read any of Zizek's books and prepared by reading the (64 page) Communist Manifesto. Going by reports he seemed confused by mentions to Das Kapital
  12. Boxing Thread

    Miller is the Dr Gonzo of boxing! I'm guessing the issue is that he has been taking PED advice from the powerlifter guys he trains with rather than paying for someone with a chemistry degree like every other elite athlete. Or maybe his chemist went to Trump University. At least we know he was coming to fight
  13. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Adonis has actually stated that he hopes Brexiteers don't vote for Labour. Farage will be happy.

    So Usyk vs Gassiev II before Usyk vs AJ.
  15. Boxing Thread

    How Miller managed to compete weighing 320 pounds was always a big question mark. Obviously being pumped to the gills full of PEDs helped. He will definitely have some EPO going on as well. Allen vs Browne will be a great end to a day of class day of football and rugby and beers in the sun.
