Fancy that, a thread about music in Finland digressing into a discussion about cemeteries.

You shouldn't have mentioned that great piece of architecture, Sbando, it's just been added to Homegrove's gang's list of places to set fire to.

Supply and demand. The demand for doctors way outstrips the supply.

In short,  Benson is smarter than all of you,  he went to Oxford and you didn't - shut up and listen to him.

Clearly smarter than you Boring.

I love the way people with no grounding in Economics toss the terms 'supply and demand' around to explain everything.

The fact is labour markets don't exactly work like goods markets, especially when you have a monopsonist buyer (of labour) (the NHS).

Yes, read up on all that. I can't be arsed explaining it.

Acute pain is pain that passes quickly.

Crap use of medical terminology for someone whose wife is an anaesthetist.

Pretty astounded that divs like Smallman can't see past petty tribal hatred on this one. Even were I not a Liverpool supporter I would applaud the families' tireless and relentless attempts to get the authorities to accept culpability for this. Don't You see that the campaign has made the police more accountable and large scale event organisation safer for everyone?

You are all music fans.

Crushes happen at festivals and gigs sometimes. The Roskilde tragedy is the probably the biggest recent one. Nine people dead, crushed and suffocated in the front pen like Liverpool fans were in the Hillsborough pens.

No doubt the likes of Bernard Ingham could (and would) turn round and say "some people got in ticketless", people were misbehaving, taking drugs, being drunk, moshing, pushing forward to get a better view.

Would you accept this or would you rather those in charge of the venues, those who scrutinise the venues and the police just do their fucking jobs properly, improve and learn when they fuck up and not try to cover stuff up?

Would love to say that this is going to disappear now but it's not.

To say they are blameless is hillarious. Everyone EVERYONE knows that they aren't. Cops handled it terribly but as dermo points out anyone would have as at some point it was always going to happen.

Nearly happened at Wembley 86 even Kenny said so in his book, happened at hysel and the. Hillsborough

You are basically suggesting that because some people behaved badly, it absolves the authorities of their duties.

The linked Guardian article is an important one - whether a fan of Liverpool or a rival team; whether an avowed social democrat or right-wing libertarian.

The South Yorkshire police were absolute scum in terms of their actions at Hillsborough and over the Miners' Strike.

Non-accountable, thuggish, fascistic tools of a dangerous regime. That is, admittedly, something that has taken me years to fully realise. We should all be on guard against government oppression and its willing agents/accomplices, perhaps it has taken me living in a state such as China to realise that.

Liverpool fans might argue that as they will feel they were the best team when they missed out on the title to Man city

Most entertaining team in the league that year? Almost certainly.

Difficult to say the best team when defence was shoddy as fuck whereas Kompany and Zabaleta had amazing seasons.

There's nothing to understand about Rhouses other than that he's a complete thicket.

'Spongiform Lifeblood' was Holden's best ever moment.

I have slated James Holden's Balance in the past for being 'pedestrian' but actually I gave it a listen again yesterday and it is a fucking excellent mix that somehow passed me by on first few listens.

Especially disc 1.

No, Jimmy Savile wasn't suspect at all.

You don't need to hear anything Rtrousers.

I want an option that says we go all in, and the EU reforms itself so it has a genuinely democratic elected executive (which would probably be a loose coalition of centre-right or centre-left pan-European parties).
