  1. https://www.espn.co.uk/boxing/story/_/id/14699965/how-canelo-alvarez-amir-khan-was-made
  2. Khan was mandatory for Canelo? Was he bollocks. He might be shot now, but anyone making out he was a bottle job, or never any good is talking nonsense. If Benn has half the career he'll have done very well.
  3. Could not think of a more stupid way to protest this than by trying to murder police officers.
  4. As has been mentioned, the evidence for any outdoor gathering leading to an outbreak is thin to non-existent. And anyone who's been outside recently will surely have seen police walk through crowded parks etc. without doing anything. The police might not be able to win, but I think in this case they've definitely lost by piling in on a bunch of young girls holding a vigil. On the flip side, I see #DefundThePolice is now trending, which is pathetic and desperately sad. It does justice neither to George Floyd/Breonna Taylor etc. or Sarah Everard to try and link the two under a trendy h
  5. It's been widely reported that he has yet to give evidence to the FBI investigation on Maxwell. The Royal Family seem happy to let him hide away and haven't turfed him out on his ear yet. Think that covers both points I made. As for whether he's guilty of any crime, if he'll never submit to questioning from the authorities, we'll never know. But if he doesn't, he can hardly blame folk for making a judgement off what evidence is available (an accusation from a credible victim, the photo of them together & his farce of an explanation).
  6. I think that criticism of the Royal Family is entirely justified. It's fairly shocking that they are enabling Andrew to evade a police investigation. My point was more about people on social media pearl clutching about the press. They absolutely have reported, at length, about Andrew. And as for creating a toxic environment of bullying around celebrities... well Facebook & Twitter are as bad as anything for that. And on those platforms Kate has had it as bad as anyone.
  7. While that headline is absurd, I think this prevailing notion that nobody ever talks about Andrew and it was all swept under the carpet, is false. It's been massively covered by the press, up to and including his own interview where Maitlis tore strips off him (rightly so). Also, while sticking a date on it is off, aren't headlines like that to be expected - when a Prince goes on Oprah and implies a future King is a racist?

    Budget

    A year ago we couldn't afford to pay nurses more, no magic money tree etc. What a load of bollocks that turned out to be. Boris is still on about tunnelling under the fucking Irish sea, and yet here are people honestly believing that we can't afford this. Same as when we couldn't afford free school meals.
  9. And you can barely call it that. Henshaw's providing unpaid commentary for a service that the club charge fans to watch. If he wants a cheerleader, he should pay for one. Evatt needs to wind his neck in rather than seeking out negatives. If he thinks Henshaw is a twat for not fawning over Brand Evatt, he's going to be in for a shock when they let fans back in.
  10. Why would anyone hope people on furlough wouldn't be enjoying it? It's not their choice, and it won't last forever so fuck it. I hope they're having a ball.
  11. It'd be useful to know when discussing this, what Mounts, Casino etc. are actually wanting to happen. It might be there isn't much disagreement at all. A phased re-opening as cases continue to drop and more and more have been vaccinated is something everyone can get on board with. But, expecting zero restrictions after the over 50s have received one jab, is just setting yourself up for disappointment.
  12. Which becomes more likely the more cases you have.
  13. Surely the path ahead to take is the one that's least likely to bring us back here. And to me that obviously involves limiting foreign travel. With cases dropping, we're nearing the time where people get amnesia again and completely forget everything that's happened to this point (well, there's no possible way there could be a THIRD wave...). Having said that, if the current thinking is that the new variants mean the vaccines stop death, but not neccesarily hospitalisations... then expanding hospital capacity (with staff) should be the next big national effort.
  14. Billy Joe Saunders showing who he is again I see.
  15. Simple, because our number of deaths over and above the average are also amongst the highest in the world. And that has nothing to do with how a COVID case is defined. https://www.ft.com/content/a2901ce8-5eb7-4633-b89c-cbdf5b386938 Which of those countries, particularly the European ones, do you not think are capable of calculating excess deaths?
