I wonder how far Junker, Merkel and co will push it in terms of gloating at the result

I'd like to see a bit of English verve and cheek liven up this tourney, for example Rooney could discreetly flash one of his balls when the camera pans over him during the anthem.

Well, it means we at least have some common ground and there is some hope of consensus. S

I think if we could find a way to stop the autocrats of Brussels and Strasbourg plundering our collective wealth to pay for yachts and golden bathtubs while our pensioners petrify in rat-infested dungeons, we Brits could begin to move towards a pro-EU consensus that worked for us and not against us.

Jay, I hope this doesn't sound disrespectful but as a Canadian basketball player your opinions on soccer could only be of less relevance if you had a pair of tits and a hair vag mate.

I'm saying I would like these roles to be abolished and all done by one person on a part time basis for 25k p.a.

"You want to get paid loads, earn it"

again, this is the point precisely. If you want to get paid loads, you should do something that adds value, some productive activity which you will be compensated for in a free market. As in, you offer your goods, or services, or time and people can choose whether to accept the terms on offer or not, and decide how much of it they want, or not.

They are powerful because they control the levers of power, they create nothing and provide nothing other than ways to enrich themselves further. Are they accountable? How can the population of Europe sack these civil servants? Did you sign off on their budgets? I didn't. Do you know their names? I don't. Do you have the choice as to whether to pay for their "services" or not? Etc etc.

Did I sound like I was saying "if you earn lots you are scum"? If so, then I wasn't being clear enough. I have no problem with people who earn lots, but only if those earnings are NOT funded by the taxes of people who have no CHOICE as to whether they pay those taxes or not!

England are not a poor side, they are a team who suffer from being too good to benefit from low expectations (such as, say, Wales) and not good enough to win stuff with their B game (Germany, Spain)

I think if England can click, and function at their best, they can win this tournament in style, but they need to get that delicate balance right between the reliable guys and the more mercurial talents.

Yes, Jamie, they *are* just civil servants (i.e. extremely powerful rich people without actual jobs), much like the ones we have over here, but on a European scale.

That's precisely the point - they are exactly like the vastly overpaid, money sucking leeches we already have at regional and national level, except on a bigger scale with less accountability, less transparency, less scrutiny and far more concentrated power. That's why they have no qualms about FOR EXAMPLE moving Brussels to Strasbourg every month at great expense.

Do you see what I'm getting at?

2 things strike me about Mr Walton, firstly he seems very certain about things which are either highly uncertain or outright wrong, secondly he seems to habitually resort to ad hominem attacks and suggestions that those who disagree with him are suffering from a brain injury.

I feel he undermines his case with such behaviour and lowers the tone of the debate.

I also believe it was David of Runcorn who coined the Bantdad epithet.

Suddenly their hours will rocket up with no way to get out of them and they'll maybe start thinking "shit, maybe I ticked the wrong box".

THE FACTS

- There is no chance of a leave vote because the public have been explicitly ordered to vote remain by the establishment
- There is no rational, scientific means by which to make a judgement as to what the "correct" decision would be - the debate is 99% spurious nonsense fuelled by a need to appeal to the proles.
- There are 2 clear benefits of remaining: free movement of labour and less risk of war. These benefits are neatly offset by 2 clear downsides: the direct cost of the autocracy and the indirect cost of the autocracy
- Human progress essentially boils down to reducing barriers and borders which is why, in the long-run, we will be part of a United States of Europe under one flag and one currency. What we are currently experiencing is the toddler/ tantrum phase of that process. In another couple of generations we'll go through the adolescence as the superstate slowly transitions to maturity and adulthood, long after we're gone.

MY ADVICE

don't vote, don't get involved, do enjoy your short life without getting into these silly arguments and do be loving to all living creatures x

Sterling played well

Can only conclude we were watching different games


He was shit. If we wanted a player to do what he did we should have taken Walcott

sterling had more touches than any other england player and was integral to an excellent first half performance - and this is your assessment?

are you 100% sure this has nothing to do with skin colour erik?

Lallana and Sterling played well but nothing came off for them, i'd keep them in the starting eleven, Vardy's only good when he's got Mahrez feeding him, Sturridge should start ahead of Kane against the Welsh.

it is a discomforting feeling to peruse the aisles in your local Aldi and realise just how much those tesco/ sainsburys/ m&s cunts are stealing from your wallet every week.

i'm going to go to Aldi now and stock up on wine, beer and some of that kiln-smoked salmon they do.

thanks for the reminder, former global clubbing elite wannabees
