    I know this is from 1944 but Eisenhower wrote this before our D-Day for the troops. Just seemed apt.

    Wish there was a translation for that, Even in Ukrainian and me not understanding it, it sounded very inspiring, Good luck Ukraine. (y)

    Probably right, That sort of news takes away from people the reality of how really crap their lives are.

    The Feckin' Dire Thread

    Why when a TV programme (This Morning) draws an average of 703,000 viewers (0.95% of UK population) A presenter leaving (Sacked or Resigned) is making headline news?

    League 1 News 22-23

    In a way i think Wigan would be more of a milestone, Man Utd always had money, commercial money, other investers etc, lots of other monies coming in, With Wigan he had to all the investing himself, When in the PL the money came in it might of eased but tbh they were a small club within that...

    League 1 News 22-23

    I think with Wigan people seem to forget that before Dave Whelan they were a small club in a Rugby League town, Without his investment they would have been bouncing around L2 and NL I think, The new owners can't seem to repeat his success and are constantly in financial trouble, Whether someone...

    Yep, Now its come out he has a gambling addiction, I shouldn't be cynical but methinks strange how its come out for maybe a reduced punishment?

    And? They went from the depths of L2, Skint, Without a ground to the PL, It is a great story of a rise from virtually nothing, Of course you need to spend money, If you want to reach that high you've got to invest shedloads plus they had to build a new stadium, Same as Coventry and Luton...

    Cricket 2023

    Indeed plus a good lifestyle there too, Just thought i'd never see the day when the US would have Cricket in some "Proffesional" form, I imagine ex-pats might have some sort of league but the words "Major League Cricket" it sounds a bit OTT?

    A fitting farewell to a very brave man, He was going to be cremated alone with no one present but after a plea put out on SM he got the send off he deserved, Flew 5 bombing missions before the age of 20!. RIP sir and thank you for your service. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-65697939

    Ta for that, TBH I can't remember when migration were those numbers you quoted, I do wince when we try to recruit nurses/other health workers from abroad, Not because I don't want them here or they're not needed but we might be recruiting from countries who aren't the wealthiest and are taking...

    Even a thicko like me saw that the footage was nothing to do with net migration, Stir up anger at what? My view is the constant manifesto pledge over various elections to get (Legal) migration down to the 10's of thousands was stupid and unworkable and has proved so.

    Considering the claims that the media is "Biased, Woke and Leftie" you'd thought they wouldn't have used it. ?

    Genuine question, Why were the media (GMB) this morning using footage of ILEGAL migrants being rescued in the channel to go with the story about the imminent release of the numbers for LEGAL migration? Surely this muddys the water between the two and tries to connect them?
