    Hard or Soft Brexit?

    If Mrs May is to be believed she will invoke article 50 by the end of March 2017, at which point we start our negotiations to the leave the EU. What are Zoners thoughts on either a hard or soft Brexit?

  3. Election day 2016

    my constituency has a byelection today Harry Harpham (Labour MP) died a few months ago and his wife is running as the labour candidate. I think his wife is a decent person and could be a good MP (in some ways stronger than Harpham). It'll be quite an interesting temperature check in a very...
  4. Cameron and Tax Havens.

    I wonder how David Cameron will get out of this one. A very knowledgeable guy on the radio said that DC would have known that part of his inheritance was benefiting from the tax haven, as his father had been using one for decades, and also more alarmingly, that DC is still benefiting from that...

    The death of English football grounds

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2015/nov/28/west-ham-upton-park-boleyn-ground-move-olympic-stadium Thought this article on the demise of football grounds (not just the Boleyn) was an interesting read. We even get a mention. Personally,I can never get my head round how many grounds...

    Michael Adebolaja appeal - why?

    I just don't get it. Why is this man being allowed the appeal here? Bang to rights, video evidence, admitted his part and yet the Human Rights bleeding hearts lot say he's entitled to an appeal. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-25961430 FFS, why??? The most senior judge in the land should just...

    Leitmotif/walk on music.

    What would you choose as your walk on music? Mine would probably be the chorus to Smooth Operator by Sade accompanied with knee deep dry ice.

    Football related arrests

    http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2013/oct/09/football-related-arrests-by-club-offence I see SUFC had 6 home arrests and three away arrests last season. Name and shame anyone?

    Breaking News Michael Timlin pleads guilty in court today

    Been done for speeding and looks like he's had other people take the points. Silly, silly boy if this is true. Front page of today's echo

    Budget 2013

    Anything you would like to see? I would like to see an end to state benefits for wealthy pensioners. State pensions and winter fuel allowances should not be subsidising cruises, holidays on the Algarve and lavish spending sprees in Marks and Spencer. Invest the money saved where it will do...

    Drink Driving

    Due to the McCormick threads in Shrimper's Chit Chat and people's clear feelings for what he did, let me ask the question, and I hope you will all be 100% honest. Have you ever driven under the influence of alcohol? I don't mean a pint, I mean enough to be over the drink drive level. Now I...

    Fútbol Español

    I know there's usually a bit of chat on here about Spanish football, so I thought we'd try and have a dedicated thread for it this season. They've just announced that the strike has been called off, so this weekend's games look set to go ahead. My boys Real Betis, fresh from signing a pikey...

    What have you watched on TV?

    As the original thread was lost in the ether after SZ's unexpected 'holiday', I thought it would be a good idea to kick it off again with Xmas TV upon us. Thoughts on the new series of Peep Show? Did anybody see Panorama last night on supermarkets/farming etc? On Tuesday I finally caught a...

    Tackles That Have Changed A Match?

    Which one stands out for you? Mine has to be Jamal Campbell-Ryce clattering Christiano Ronaldo in the League Cup when Manchester United came to grief at the Hall. Christiano had been doing those little tricks for the opening few minutes but this time Jamal wasn't buying it. To mine and...
  17. The drugs debate once more....

    So the UK's drug advisor says something the government doesn't want to hear and he gets sacked. What's the point of advising if the cretins in charge don't listen to the evidence and just pander to middle England? There's no grown up thinking when it comes to drugs in this country.
