    My stepcousin (if there is such a thing) is through to the last 8 in the Badminton men's singles, although he did make it harder work for himself in the first game today than it should have been.

    Just dredging this one up to the top, as our 1s are playing against Masvuare tomorrow - he now turns out for Horsley & Send in the Surrey Championship where he plays alongside ex-Leicestershire quick Wayne White. Both are not bad players in the fifth tier in Surrey...White took a 7-fer in the...

    That was brilliant.

    While in theory I'd agree about seeking a new mandate, that does start to go down the slippery slope of a presidential style of government.

    0.0% of the electorate got that choice! (Just like with May, btw)

    OK, I may have a look - I enjoyed the Shipman books.

    Wow, the nightshift certainly got busy in this thread - a couple of answers to questions asked of me: Al20k - I was pretty much all-in on Penny in terms of who I wanted to be able to vote for. Of course, now she's in Team Truss, I'm rather hoping she will be the "ambassador" at tonight's...

    I'm still fairly open (in that I'm not keen on either of them), likely to be Sunak but that could change in the coming weeks once I've had the opportunity to listen to them properly. I don't like the way Truss has operated throughout, which has put me slightly on the Sunak side of the fence. It...

    Let's just say I wasn't exactly impressed with our MPs in who they selected - neither Sunak nor Truss were high up on my list (much like last time with Boris and Hunt). Far be it for me to praise the red lot, but their method is much better - if we had candidates getting the endorsement of a...

    International relations thread

    For all his many (many) faults, the Trump presidency in terms of foreign affairs was something of a triumph - no new wars, a de-escalation in Korea, the Abraham Accords. Less than two years later we have the situation in Russia/Ukraine, the imminent (hopefully not) invasion of Taiwan by China...

    Would have been nice to see the impact of recent price drops for oil / petrol and its impact on the overall inflation rate before acting - supply-led inflation is always a different beast too. Interest rate rises won't, IMO, curb inflation rather it will put the brakes on the already fragile...

    Cambridge Utd : 13th August

    Another of the fixtures I wanted to attend that has been kiboshed by the fixture taking place during the Cricket season. I will be at the Park three days later, however.

    Assuming Rishi gets through to the final ballot, a lot will depend on who he is up against. From what I'm seeing, Truss is a very polarising character amongst the membership - loved by many, but many also saying she'd be useless. A straight fight between Truss and Sunak may be closer than one...

    Summer Transfer Thread

    It should also be noted that to those closer to (or in) metropolitan areas, distance becomes relative and what may not seem too onerous to Devon folk would be ridiculous to those from the big cities. On a loosely related note, I remember one year a Walsall fan on a forum bemoaning their lack of...

    Truss for me is an effective lieutenant but not a general.

    Yes, it's a fair assumption to make that both were elevated to the top job in their party despite their MPs. I really hope there isn't a stitch up this time, early signs are OK.

    Lincoln City - 30 July

    Lincoln away was one of the fixtures I had near the top of my bucket list - been to the city before but not the ground, plus was the closest one for my old Uni mate and I to meet up. So for it to come first up, slap bang in the middle of the Cricket season, had me cursing the computer screen...

    The membership in my echo chambers continue to coalesce behind Penny, Truss and Kemi Badenoch, with Rishi nowhere to be seen.

    Last time you saw someone famous

    If it was straight I wouldn't have missed it. It was one of those deliveries where you hear the clink of the bails and think "bloody hell, what happened there?" before calling the bowler something unprintable when shaking his hand at the end of the match. In my defence too it was my first knock...
