    Put another way, Labour's record in General Elections since 1979 reads:

    lost
    lost
    lost
    lost
    Blair
    Blair
    Blair
    lost
    lost
    lost
    lost

    And yet they still seem to all hate Blair.

    I don’t love Blair but accept for Labour to get in again it’s never going to be with a genuine way left of centre leader no matter how **** the Tories are or how many people their failures kill.

    It’s been too long since we watched a game together then.

    They won't be back in for years. Even this inexperienced Tory government is miles ahead in so many areas. TBH I think the shadow cabinet is actually 'thicker' then the Corbyn one. Starmer is being forgotten nearly as much as the irrelevant Limps leader who I can't even remember.

    I probably work out less now than before the gyms closed. Four weights sessions a week but higher volume given I’m not working with anything like the same weight as the gym had. A bit more cardio but I’ve mainly sacked that off as the weather has got worse.

    Main thing without doubt is food and drink. Barely drinking now and tracking protein.

    The KFC in Bracknell is horrific for many reasons.

    You don't seem to be in a majority on the left, but three and a half years is a long time for that to change.

    Whoops, there’s also a video doing the rounds where he comments about people of other ethnicities in a very, very negative way, he’s also looking for a new job so if you think people should be able to spout this without it reflecting on your work please hit him up and offer him work.

    Whats your point Wills ?
    Fella makes a complete **** of himself and spouts racist/homophobic/fundamentalist bollox on social media and ruins his life over it.
    It’s happened before and will happen again.......What’s it got to do with politics or anyone on here ?

    a while back there was a freedom of speech discussion and this is point in case where yeah he’s free to spout this stuff but the repercussions on his life have been hefty. People on here were suggesting this sorta thing should not reflect on his work status,

    With pretty much most jobs you have colleagues or customers or business relationships. Or a mix of the lot, do you not consider his views would be counter productive in building these relationships? The guy literally said that he hates people of other ethnicities and stands by his statement. As soon as you have any interaction be that employ or have a business relationship with one of the many people he hates could you not see a problem? As an employee in the modern world you represent your company and by making these statements on a public forum that can reflect back on the business. Would you go to a pub run by or has an employee who supports NAMBLA? (Heard of them through South Park but they exist)

    Not really.....I worked with people who supported the aims of ISIS, in fact one girls brother was killed fighting for them in Syria....she worked ok and did her job.
    I used to drink sometimes in the Adam and Eve in Hayes.....it was a known IRA pub.
    You sometimes seem a little obsessed by race.

    I see a lot of racism going on and think it’s **** and especially with the likes of Trump you can see how he pandered to racists to get votes which is very dangerous.
