Does anyone else just find capitalism in general massively depressing?
at 09:39 22 Oct 2019

Speaking as one person who took early retirement by 'flogging off' a business, I have to say at the moment yes it is extremely depressing - but largely because our system is rotten from the top down - and getting worse exponentially under a government with open contempt for the law as well as the people. Your broad brushstrokes probably does a disservice to people who built up a business at high risk to themselves - and their family life - and probably over-rewarded the staff who 'inherited' the business. Jeremy Clarkson wrote a good piece on modern business financial philosophy in this weeks Sunday Times.

More worrying surely is that this small bunch of extremists and religious zealots have been propping up a tory government hell bent on making things worse for the UK - as well as Northern Ireland.

I think you will find the answer in extreme and narrow interpretation of God's views on something he may not have thought about whilst rearranging Adam's ribs...... very similar to views deeply rooted in the 'flyover states' of the USA..

Were any of you lot amongst my million closest friends yesterday? Or does your angst at the probable end of the UK and democracy, cutting the umbilical cord that sustains our economy with no idea of how to piece together an intensive care unit to nurture a recovery end with words on here?

Because the Good Friday agreement is legally binding and mandates NI and Ireland having free and open borders to goods and people. Britain has finally agreed to obey international law after 3.5 years. This withdrawal agreement does that. It also puts a hard border between NI and Great Britain - which some people dont remember being mentioned prior to the referendum. More pertinently whilst these extremists toe the party line and big up the benefits of some people in NI being able to carry on with their normal lives - they fail to mention the open border with the EU on our only land border with free access to anyone and anything to the UK - the exact opposite of what was promised by the Brexit liars.

Because the entire argument is fatuous cr@p. All that needs to be done is allow the world to absorb the excess CO2 (and other greenhouse gases) being produced. That can be done naturally or artificially. Billy moo cows are vegans - but they produce an awful lot of greenhouse gases.

Has he though? Norwich have deliberately avoided wasting money on expensive rubbish - wisely perhaps choosing not to repeat the mistakes they did last time... giving a team good enough to win the second division a shot at the Prem. Every so often they have played quite well indicating they could stay up - but may not. All whilst suffering up to 10 first teamers missing from a small squad. All in all they are doing reasonably well.

Free tickets for the great Labour race to the bottom

Not strictly true is it? They want companies like TC to insure themselves against collapse and their directors (and accountants) not to profit to the tune of tens of millions from dodgy accounting whilst running up huge debts which became unsustainable after Brexit. Given that the alleged £600 million repatriation cost has been quietly revised down to a less eye-watering figure by creative accounting it still begs the question why TC staff and planes in place were not paid to bring back the TC customers in place - but I suspect the cabinet were more interested in their hedge fund positions by monday morning. When all is said and done the Tory party and government has a huge responsibility for the demise of companies due to Brexit in Brexit supporting areas. A nice gesture from Labour that they will never have to deliver on.

So these Labour delegates just:
at 09:07 24 Sep 2019

Not exactly true. They voted to differentiate themselves from the Lib Dems by not ignoring their voters who voted remain. and have given a clear indication that they support the result of the referendum, will negotiate the best deal possible - and put that to the people for a confirmatory vote. Some see it as a bit wishy washy but the reality is that Labour are now the only party offering to honour the referendum AND the chance to stay in. And yes - by not stabbing their own voters in the back in strongly remain seats they offer a voter like myself in a 64% Tory voting constituency the glimmer of a hope.

Great Thunberg speech....
at 08:25 24 Sep 2019

Hmm China is a fast expanding economy that we and the rest of the world have outsourced our production to. It stands to reason then that their CO2 emissions will go up whilst ours go down. However to say they have done nothing is somewhat erroneous. They scrap any car over 8 years old for example. This has made a huge difference to air quality in city centres. A bit better than a few waitrose shoppers buying overpriced, impractical eco cars they can't plug in anywhere to use electricity we can ill afford at present.

Thomas Cook and debt....
at 08:20 24 Sep 2019

What is debt to one accountant is profit to another and allows the TC directors to trouser £20 million in bonuses for the way they ran the company since 2011. Despite the Spanish and Turkish Government guaranteeing money the British Government refused to act as a guarantor and the company collapsed owing a lot of money to Johnny Foreigner Hotel owners which doesnt really matter. Any relation between the Tory government and the Tory minister who runs one of the hedge funds that made £200 million for the collapse is purely coincidental.

That really is a pitiful viewpoint to despise a well run provincial club currently on the up - and doing it without financial doping or cheating the system. Norwich are showing Town up simply by doing and being what this club used to represent. I think anyone with some functioning brain cells and a sense of perspective wishes them well - even as someone said earlier their leaky defence might well see them relegated.

Chuka's rationale for leaving T.I.G (gers)
at 10:59 17 Sep 2019

You misunderstand our democracy. Very few MPs win a majority of the votes in their constituencies - they are just first past the post. They are elected to represent their constituents in a sovereign parliament - most of who almost certainly did not vote for them Therefore its perfectly reasonable for Chukka, the fragrant Heidi Allen and the likes to keep a firm grip on their seats - they represent their constituency - the party is almost irrelevant - and in their cases utterly irrelevant.

This court case tomorrow
at 10:55 17 Sep 2019

Because the PM is not supposed to lie to the queen to satisfy a small minority of extremists in his own party. Basically its treason.

IF/when the case is won Johnson has to resign and a government of national unity will be formed to run the country in the best interests of its citizens. Hence no need for the early election that Tory bluster was seeking in an act of desperation last week.

Not quite that bleak. It was apparently the first time a promoted club had beaten the arab state sponsored side in 25 attempts. They have also elected to take on the Prem with more or less the team that got them promoted costing about the same as one of the opposition's kneecaps....which is admirable, but possibly a relegation strategy. They also had 8 first team players out. All in all quite good really. If you want to talk them down simply remember when we beat Man U 3-2 at home. The away score was 9-0.... which could still happen for those leaky canaries.

This is a journeyman striker who has had one year in the fourth division and a few games in the dizzy heights of the third division. He's not doing too bad for a 'free' as someone on here says. Not everyone can be Pukki.
