Posted in: Man City eye Premier League history as Arsenal dare to dream See in context

Man City will win the title for a fourth successive time which has never been achieved before

Looks like.

I know some people think the only way this dominance will end is when Guardiola leaves or if City are heavily punished for allegedly breaking finance rules.

Be careful of proven pathological liars like Trump stating anything - even down to their nationality or religion.

The only reason serious people accept Trump is American and eligible to be president is that it can be independently verified.

Wish City and Arsenal were away and playing sides who had something crucial to play for. West Ham will finish 9th regardless of the result and Everton will finish 16th or 17th.

Freak results always possible but the lack of edge makes it less likely.

Trump is no different than any of the other cheap, faux religious hucksters like Jimmy Swaggert, Benny Hinn, and Kenneth Copeland that have for ages preyed on the lower-educated and easily manipulated to buy their mega-churches, mansions and private jets...

He does have a lot in common with religious rip-off artists.

Been lying to and scamming people all his life.

What’s the exact connection between online pornography addiction and exposing oneself?

The exact connection is what all the porn-addicted people here are loath to admit

What is the exact connection?

Who made the exact connection?

What stats are available to show the connection?

Simple solution is to just pull them. If they choose to leave their skin on the runway that is their problem

Edgy as ever. Keep it up…

Whether is soup or superglue, these activists are in dire need of some new ideas and ways of capturing the imagination of the public.

This isn’t cutting it.

Posted in: Musk confirms Twitter has become X.com See in context

As he has lost about $30bn on his purchase of Twitter, he must feel pretty sick if he only sees money

You wonder how he views Twitter.

Is it just a hobby for him? A money loser but a way to raise his profile?

It can’t be a fierce commitment to the principle of free speech. That is demonstrably false.

Posted in: Paul McCartney becomes UK's first billionaire musician See in context

People on here criticizing McCartney for being so rich are presumably just as angry for Taylor Swift achieving that much or more, and comparatively overnight. Well, are you?

While you applaud both for their success?

Well, don’t you?

No one deserves to be a “billionaire” with so much hunger and poverty in the world. Most don’t pay their fair share of taxes

A defensible point.

Good to see the UK government finally bowed to pressure to close the loopholes used by the tax-dodging super rich.

Only to a limited point though. Much more to be done.

Posted in: Musk confirms Twitter has become X.com See in context

I honestly think the platform is better off now than it was before.

Did people just forget about how active ISIS was in the mid-2010s and how long it took to get them removed? Twitter's moderation was an absolute JOKE. They literally were more concerned with banning people for offensive jokes than actual terrorist organizations. Totally irresponsible.

Fair point. There was a lot of trash that deserved to be thrown off.

Then again, wasn’t Alex Jones allowed back on later? The specimen who influenced morons to believe the parents of murdered kids were crisis actors.

Trash.

Go Elon

Musk has his own agenda plus external forces shaping what he sees as fit to ban or silence.

I find the types who call him ‘Elon’ like him for not banning things they personally like. Some are under the bizarre impression that makes him a free speech champion.

You can like a ref who gives the decisions in favour of your side, but don’t call him a good ref.

Posted in: Musk confirms Twitter has become X.com See in context

I know of no people from English-speaking countries who refer to it as "X." Every single one of them says "Twitter" still. 

Among Japanese people I know, I'd say 25% of them say "X" while the rest still say "Twitter."

The name change along with the logo change was a stupid idea.

Twitter a great name which gives the verb ‘tweet’. I heard someone say the platform ‘X’ gives us…’excrete’?

Anyway, a business on the slide with only the partisan and/or very stupid, uninformed or gullible believing it is committed to free speech.

"X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, suspended a number of high-profile journalists Tuesday, including Steven Zetti of the Texas Observer and Ken Klippenstein of the Intercept. The pages for each of the suspended accounts offers no explanation for their removal and does not say if the suspensions are temporary or permanent bans."

Yep.

I think honest people who like the new direction of Twitter would admit that they like Musk because he allows more of speech they like.

That would be more honest and worth taking seriously than those calling him a free speech champion.

That’s palpable nonsense.

I suppose the question is how long Musk is prepared to keep this declining business afloat. He’s obviously got the money to do it.

Posted in: Musk confirms Twitter has become X.com See in context

He has fired thousands of staff, overseen major technical problems and reinstated accounts of right-wing conspiracy theorists, as well as former US president Donald Trump

The number of users continues to decline. Could be partly because he’s lowered the tone and allowed it to become even more of a cesspit.

Keir Starmer politically is a charisma free zone, his pledge card political gimmickry a through back to the “Tony Blair” wonder years that “New Labour” could do no wrong

I was a member of the Labour Party before and during the earlier part of the New Labour years.

I left because of the Iraq War although they’d pissed me and a lot of other people off before that disgrace.

New Labour could and did do a lot wrong.

Who is expecting Nirvana? Who are you talking about here?

Less incompetence with a stable government would be an improvement.

On the Brexit point, is there any sentient and honest person left who thinks Brexit has benefited the UK economy?

To be blunt, who cares what they would like?

I'm fairly sure the clubs do!

You are looking at this from the wrong perspective.

The ‘clubs’, or rather the owners, have screwed over the supporters and faced a backlash. From attempting to bugger off and form a super league to jacking up ticket prices. The club you jumped on the bandwagon of saw supporters getting together and pressuring the club on ticket prices.

It’s long overdue that the supporters are listened to more.

Can’t see English football fans allowing it - there will be huge opposition to it much like there was to the planned European super league - another stupid money making plan that was scuppered because fans hated the idea

Yes, English football is primarily about English supporters - their hometown clubs. The Premier League businesspeople often need reminding of that fact.

Man U v Liverpool is played at Old Trafford or Anfield in the Premier League. The atmosphere and the rivalry in the stadiums is part of it - this is tribalism. Same for Real Madrid V Barcelona.

Playing it abroad in front of a crowd of bandwagon jumpers would cheapen it. This isn’t some empty franchise nonsense.

Supporters from other countries can watch the finest sport in the world from the finest leagues in the world on TV. If they want to pay a fortune to come to England or Spain to watch a game - knock yourself out.

Problem solved.

Gaetz later posted a photo on social media of him standing behind Trump in court, with the words, “Standing back, and standing by, Mr. President.” That is a phrase that the Proud Boys, an extremist group whose leaders were convicted of seditious conspiracy after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, have used since Trump, during a 2020 campaign debate, said: “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by

Not a lot of money to play with for Labour. The effects of the pandemic, Tory mismanagement and the Brexit disaster have left the cupboard close to empty.

The windfall tax and ending tax breaks for private schools are good moves. More aggressive measures to tackle tax avoidance and evasion would be welcomed .

Trying to discredit the news because you don't like the facts as usual won't change the facts

Who said I had any strong feelings either way about the facts in this case? I don’t as it goes.

As usual

?

Just pointing out that the Telegraph has gone down the toilet. I do have some feelings about that. It’s a pity. Was a reasonable newspaper that could be trusted to some level.

I thought I was offering you something you may not have been aware of but you started lashing out.

Fair enough. I wont bother in future.

As you said, be careful.

One more thing. Don't assume that the assassin was a left-winger. The Russians could easily have set this up to make room for their pick of the fascist litterbox and/or to place blame on the Ukrainians

Reminds me of when the remainer British MP Jo Cox was murdered before the 2016 referendum by a right winger. It goes without saying that our conspiracy theorists and right wingers thought this was a set-up to discredit the leavers.

It also goes without saying that no evidence of this was found.

She was murdered by an extreme right winger. Very simple.

What evidence do we have up to now?
