Football / Re: NUFC Transfer rumours in the press

Why would Chelsea let Batsuite go when they have the Champions League added to their fixtures next season, that would be nuts unless they intend to buy another striker, which would be nuts as they already have Batfink.

There's no logic whatsoever in 'it wasn't better for me, so things shouldn't get better'. It's just pure spite because you had it harder. There's nothing more to it than that.

Just think if you had it easier you wouldn't have to live in Whitley bays answer to Compton.

It's we, not me, man. That's the point. Just because a generation got f***ed over shouldn't mean that you take it out on a generation that had absolutely nothing to do with it. It's not only properly spiteful, it's properly misplaced.

It's all about looking after my family first, as no one else will. It's down to me, therefore I need to protect my earnings. I dont see any wrong in that at all.

Labour sounds like a total disaster for my situation. It's like turkeys voting for xmas, Sunderland voting for brexit. Convince me otherwise.


If you don't like Corbyn or Labour, that's fine, that's your decision. What I don't get and will never get, is why anyone who's working class would vote for the Tories, it's nothing short of suicide.

I know this will sound odd, but when ever there's a Tory govenrment i have more money in my pay packet. That's the trick though, everything else crumbles around you, but you just don't see it as you feel better in your pocket. Maybe that's something about living in the South, but that's how it's always seemed to me down here.

My pay packet was miles better when I lived in Japan too, but then when I got sick and had to go to the doctors it was like £90 just to see one. People whinge about tax for this that and the other, but like you said, if everything else crumbles around you what's the point? You're only of any benefit if you either never need anything, or you save that money for when you do - in which case, what's the point?

I agree but Dokko is right about wanting to look after his family first (not a criticism of that Dokko, perfectly fair position). That's where it ties in, most people only look inwards, quite normally. Most never see the bigger picture as they look after themselves financially.


Looking after your family in this way means a hell of a lot more then merely having more cash in your back pocket. You can have more money,  it wont get more police, it wont get more firemen, it wont get you better quicker for your family should they get run over. Thats without how much you'll pay to move to an area with a better school and the fear you'll go through if they fail the exam to go to grammar school.

KI's just been used.

f***ing cat-fished in the UK Politics Thread on a football forum ffs. :lol:

Sorry.  :lol: it's not like that really. It's just a lot of faff on and am I f*** going back over everything that's been said trying to find something that relates to me. Also if I came in here and went 'what's best for me?' I'd get a sarky comment or no answer at all.

I've always said this place is great for politics, especially for someone like me who doesn't really have the time to follow it.

Thanks for the current crash course. :)

Ps: and Greg said I was a selfish idiot. Only half right, treehugger.


:lol:

You scumbag. :lol:

Labour also wanting to tax higher earners more and lower the threshold? f*** this, not a chance.

Is everyone in here either multimillionaires or working for buttons/on the dole?  :lol:
Lowering the 45p threshold from £150,000 to £80,000 isn't really excessive or did you think they were wanting to lower the 40p threshold ?

As for your question I'm just breaking into the 40p threshold and have always thought we were under taxed A better idea would be to put more pressure on Government about what happens with our tax instead of a once every 5 year (normally) vote with very narrow remits.

Ah. They two different things?  :blush:

Yeah, it's the one where if you are earning say, £40k, it would impact on overtime.  :hmm:

I think making university more available to the poorer families in society has to be a good thing post Brexit. If we're not importing skilled workers anymore we're going to be needing a skilled workforce from somewhere. Seems a good investment to me.

Thought you voted Cameron in '15, Dokko?

Nah I did the same then. Told everyone I was going to and got all the reasons why I shouldn't, I think in the end I just didn't vote. I voted remain though, that was a simple choice not even I needed to have explained to me  :lol:
