Bit of an experiment this, but I thought we could have a thread where members can discuss general topics, away from horse racing. I'm aware this could cause some heated debate but thought it good to have a forum to discuss current affairs. Thanks to the powers granted to me I've stickied it, but will obviously moderate the thread responsibly. Some topics outside Horse Racing are of sufficient interest to warrant their own dedicated threads. The index to all Non Horse Racing threads can be found here Anyways, let's see how it goes. Here's my starter for 10: Edward Snowden is being hunted down like a dog by the USA. Memories of the Will Smith film "Enemy Of The State" are recalled. Now he has fled to Russia and we have US Senators warning of "grave consequences". What the ****????? He's blown the whistle on the US government spying on anything and everything and now they are after his blood. Un-fecking-believeable. Makes me feel very afraid of the way the world is heading.
