The Strasbourg market gunman has been killed by Police.

The man has no shame.

He's just a racist, xenophobic, islamophobic bigot, whose life is so pathetic and empty that he has to bait people on an internet forum.

No. A touch of basic human decency.

Ideally you don't shoot them dead - it just martyrs them.

Cheese recommendations please
at 12:46 13 Dec 2018

Going to have a cheese and port evening at home with Mrs Uefa tomorrow, so I'm sallying forth this afternoon to infiltrate a local place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles.

Probably going to stick with hard/medium-hard stuff - there'll be some crunchy cheddar, probably some Harlech, that sort of thing. Anything else the TWTD hive mind might recommend?

Being reported Theresa May has at least 165 votes to ‘remain’

I dare say she'll hang on as long as there are government contracts that have yet to end up with G4S - Mr May wouldn't be happy if not...

John Major - and he actually had the balls to essentially call for a motion of no confidence in himself!

And therein lies the rub. These days the wills of the Parliamentary Parties are so far removed from the wills of the grassroots members as to be completely unrepresentative of their members.

I wouldn't be sure of anything until the votes are in. The BBC are reporting that at least five senior ministers who've backed her publicly this morning plan to vote against her tonight.

Even if she only wins by one vote, though, I cannot see her resigning. She's starting to look more and more like Thatcher in her final days as leader.

So.... who should I vote for at the next election??
at 12:34 12 Dec 2018

On Labour and benefits:

I agree (with what I imagine you believe) that benefits should provide a safety net, and that they should be set at such a level as to encourage those who are claiming them (and can do so) to move into employment as soon as possible.

However, I cannot agree with the way the current government is handling benefits, and are driving into poverty those who have a legitimate need for state support.

I would much rather see a system which provides support to everyone who needs it, whilst maybe a certain amount abuse the system, as opposed to a system which cannot be abused, but stops legitimate cases from accessing assistance.

A 2nd referendum then
at 08:58 12 Dec 2018

If you had a three-option vote, you'd need to run it on Single Transferable Vote, or some sort of AV system. Otherwise you'll just split the Leave vote, and end up with (just using 2016 numbers here) something like:

Leave with deal - 26%
Leave with no deal - 26%
Remain - 48%

Wes Hoolahan

I'd love it if we did manage to get him in. I imagine the Lambert connection will help, as well as his having not left Norwich on the greatest of terms.

It'd be doubly laughable, given that they've just announced a Wes Hoolahan v Russell Martin 'legends' game for next summer. It's almost as if they've forgotten he once dubbed them a "f*cking sh*thouse of a club"...

Why would you give a dog a chocolate, onion and mince pie?

I do like the suggestion that dogs would "use" toothpaste and mouthwash, rather than just eating it.

But does that preclude having a player train at the club, as long as they remain (for argument's sake) a Stoke player in the eyes of the league?

Given that PL has said he's already identified who he wants to bring in, and that he's keen to have them through the door on January 1st, is there anything to stop him from trying to get the deals done now, and have them train with the first team squad until then?

Is there a reason Luton beating Norwich isn’t considered a big shock and in

It wasn't in last night's montage as it was a fourth round tie. Everything featured was from third rounds past.

It's a tax on the lazy.

Go out shopping on a Saturday, buy a ton of fresh ingredients for a fraction of the price, and you've got pretty much the same deal.

Phil - website on mobiles
at 20:31 28 Nov 2018

Is there any chance of getting the website optimised better for mobiles?

I'm running Chrome on a OnePlus 3T, and whenever I load the forum it jumps all over the place, seemingly even after all the adverts are loaded, so it's a struggle to click on the right link.

Likewise, sometimes it seems impossible to zoom in/out, and scroll down the page - it just springs back to how/where it was.
