    My cars fine but I've only a tiny bit (range is 20 miles) in my bike. Tempted to roll pass the queues for petrol that are blocking Toton Lane and nip in for some, I can only get about 16/17 quids worth of super in though.

    You need to do that in your arseless chaps for maximum effect on the queueing muppets.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.

    Working class woman who had a poverty stricken childhood and an abusive father. Then growing up she had a child at 15 (the dad did one) and has grafted her arse off to become deputy leader of the Labour Party?

    Do I agree with all her politics? No. But fucking hell if we are judging character and coming through adversity give me Rayner over any of those wankers in the Tory party cabinet.

    Never said she didn't have a harsh upbringing.

    I'm referring to what she's done in her time with the Labour party, especially recently.

    All the discussion has been about Rayner calling the Tories scum (which I agree is stupid of her, politically), but barely anyone has mentioned the Tory MP who said a bomb should be planted in Annelise Dodds' office.

    What a load of faux outrage

    The caring side of the Conservative party in full force. She's talking about Risley Hall being used as a centre for housing Afghan refugees. As I live only a couple of miles away I'm thinking of barrackading myself and my family in the house.







    In it, Mrs Throup wrote: "I appreciate and share many of your concerns about the hotel's current use as a Home Office approved accommodation centre, especially given the historical significance of the building and close proximity to Treetops Hospice, Woodhall Park Nursing Home, Risley Hall Park Retirement Village and Risley Lower Grammar Church of England (VC) Primary School.

    100%.

    Same people eerily quiet when it came to the 'let the bodies pile high', not to mention the constant use of snowflake as an insult when others take offence to things.

    Out of interest, what has she done in her time in the Labour Party which epitomises everything that is wrong with it?

    This isn't meant to be a cop out Gandalf but I've had a crap day and the kids have done my head in enough as it is so I'd rather not get into a political discussion

    I'll delete the post

    No worries fella, I know she is a bit brash and sometimes says things that don’t help the cause, but I was genuinely interested.

    I hope this fuel crisis lasts for a while, I won’t have to go work if I can’t get fuel.

    The preliminary results from yesterdays‘ German Bundestage elections have been announced, here’s a summary:

    The centre-left SPD and their chancellor candidate, Olaf Scholz, have won 25.7% of the vote, giving them a slim lead over their centre-right CDU/CSU rivals.

    Angela Merkel’s CDU party (and their Bavarian CSU sister-party) and their candidate, Armin Laschet, sank to a historic low in a federal election, with 24.1%.

    The Greens, led by Annalena Baerbock, have secured their best result in a national poll, with early results putting them at 14.8% – in third place and ahead of the liberal FDP, which posted 11.5%, also a small improvement.

    The far-right AfD is set to enter parliament for the second time, on 10.3%.

    The leftwing Die Linke party failed to clear the 5% hurdle to enter parliament, winning just 4.9%, but will be represented anyway due to a loophole that excepts them if they win three direct mandates.

    The Bundestag will welcome its first transgender MPS, after Green candidates Tessa Ganserer and Nyke Slawik won seats.

    The parties will now embark on „exploratory talks” to form a coalition government, with a three-way coalition considered the most likely at this point.

    Likely coalitions include a so-called green-yellow-red „traffic light” coalition, with the SPD, Greens and FDP, or a „Jamaican” coalition of the CDU/CSU, Greens and FDP.

    Both Scholz and Laschet have insisted they will form the government, with Laschet pointing out that, „It hasn’t always been the case that the party in first place provides the chancellor.” The Greens and the FDP will play kingmakers.

    Angela Merkel will remain chancellor while coalition talks proceed - that could be a lengthy process, with talks lasting three months in 2017.
