    Ffs give it a rest. I've said the Tories are doing a good job at appealing to people and Labour aren't. This is for a number of reasons, none of them to do with whether voters are clever or stupid. People make different choices from other people for hundreds of different reasons and always have...

    Yay or Nay: The Royal Family

    Any sign of this yet?😆😆😆 https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-56296835 Conspiracy corner update. Phil died last week and his death will be announced this afternoon. Mr and Mrs Sussex's interview will not be shown by ITV and tomorrow's media will be preoccupied with HRH's departure

    I am not in the habit of describing people I disagree with as duped (or thick or racist for that matter) so please give up trying to pin that on me. The answer to your question is that Tories have successfully captured the imagination of "ordinary" voters (am I not ordinary btw?) and Labour...

    This is a fantastic bit of scheduling. It sets us a test to see if we're good enough to go up - if we win these games we are, if we don't we aren't quite ready yet

    No, you're probably right. It has always struck me as a bit odd how populist leaders demonstrably loathe or find distasteful their core supporters and spend as little time as possible associating with them . Think Farage and his March for Brexit, Trump and his March to the Capitol. The well...

    "British workers are "among the worst idlers in the world", a group of Conservative MPs has claimed. The UK "rewards laziness", does not encourage risk-taking and must strive to emulate the work ethic and low-tax culture in parts of Asia, the five MPs argue in a book due out next month. The...

    I wouldn't hold your breath Indo. A lot of straw men Truss sets up so that she can knock them down. None of them will come as a surprise - Tavy's been mouthing them for years. The fact is conveniently ignored that geographic inequality has been caused primarily by a) Thatcher's destruction of...

    It's not do much brinkmanship, it's just that there's no workable compromise I can see, no matter how well intentioned and cordial the negotiations are.

    The Brexit Trade Agreement is not going to work because of Northern Ireland. As the sane and rational David Liddington pointed out, there are only three ways of managing the land border between the United Kingdom and the EU. 1. A land border in Ireland 2. The whole of the UK stays in the...

    Enjoyed the highlights of the Ollie Ethan clash, particularly the reenactment of the Hartridge sending off with added VAR and post match punditry that replayed almost word for word the Exeweb case for a yellow.

    Marcus Flitcroft - Head of Recruitment. What does he do and what is his back story?

    Is he by any chance related to brothers David and Garry Flitcroft? I think we should be told.... ( if we haven't been already)

    Exeter City Vs Walsall Matchday Thread

    I saw at least 3 City players standing offside just before the kick was taken. I assumed this was a cunning plan and they'd move back just as the kick was being taken, but they didn't. Nothing unfortunate about it - just incompetent

    I can only assume that when Matt did his coaching course he somehow managed to miss the Module "Making effective substitutions". I wonder if the FA does refreshers? Atangana for Taylor weakened the midfield, Sparkes for Randall was fine except that Sparkes replaced Willmott who replaced...

    Hartridge and McCardle haven't put a foot wrong. Randall is below par- wouldn't be surprised if Sparkes replaced him
