Saudi Arabia: - lovely country, lots of sand, human rights for all, especially women. Who wouldn't want to play football there? Especially if they chucked in 100 million dollars a year.

I've just watched Oppenheimer. "Watched" is probably overstating it a bit as for the majority of the time my eyes glazed over. A tedious and mind numbing three hours I'll never get back. It would put the most determined insomniac to sleep.

Posted in: Man arrested for assaulting man who dropped litter outside train station See in context

 he took a seat next to me and then he nonchalantly threw his receipt on the floor thinking no one saw him, without even blinking I picked up the receipt and told him, he dropped something.

Would you have done the same in heavily armed downtown Huston?

Hardly flash floods. It rained torrentially non-stop for close on 24 hours.

Posted in: Democrats keep Senate majority as GOP push falters in Nevada See in context

Getting the House, amen to that. Now the extreme Biden agenda is like the Spruce Goose, just a dream.

Yes, as Crime, the open borders the defunding of the police were heavily and irresponsibly underestimated by the Democrats.

And if the Democrats continue to ignore the border, continue to demonize the police, indoctrinate our kids with a woke distorted culture, and to continue to ignore crime, inflation as well as our civil liberties, the 1st and 2nd amendment they will be the biggest losers in the US.

Thanks GOP, thank you hardworking Americans, thank you Trump and definitely thank you, RDS

Well, you got the Senate and we got the House. Win, win.

Struggling a bit there Bass? All your predictions falling around your ears? Problem is, when you are so one-eyed you can't see the full picture.

"We're playing and have been playing some top-level sides and we will be better for that," said Southgate.

But unable to beat single one of them. I'm picking we will have a WC winner this year who has never one before. That or Messi and Argentina may do it. I do not see a Euro team winning although I think Denmark and Hungary may surprise a few.

Posted in: Stay or go? Ronaldo's future uncertain at Manchester United See in context

Ronaldo is way past his before date. He no longer has the clout to dictate to a manager. Great player, now wallowing in his own self importance. My guess is that as he has missed pre-season he may spend a good while on the bench. The new manager has to make a stand. If Ronaldo calls the shots then last seasons 6th place finish may look good come next May.

Posted in: Facing threats, some U.S. election workers weigh whether to stay See in context

That wasn’t the point. The left can’t go around abusing workers and staff at a workplace for any reason whatsoever.

But trying to overturn an election, committing numerous crimes along the way - That's fine with you?

Posted in: Kane's 50th England goal rescues draw with Germany See in context

England captain Harry Kane scored his 50th international goal on Tuesday by converting a late penalty in Munich to seal a 1-1 Nations League draw with Germany.

I think there is a typo here. "seal a draw" should read "steal a draw". Germany were by far the better team. England ( and Southgate) seem to have run out of ideas. As a long suffering England fan who was in shorts last time England won the world cup - I can say with some confidence "it's not coming home" this world cup. If they play like the did in their last two matches then getting out the group stage would be considered a good tournament.

Posted in: Woman storms Cannes red carpet to protest Ukraine rapes See in context

Attention-seeking much?

Yes, that is the aim of the protest. To bring to the worlds attention that Ukrainian women and girls are being raped by Russian soldiers who have invaded their country. And given that this picture is being shown in Japan and around the world, I'd give her 10/10 for bringing the issue to the worlds attention. Well done that woman!

Posted in: Pariah to president: Marcos Jr returns family to Philippines supremacy See in context

None so blind as those that won't see. That said, the Philippines have a history of electing unsuitable and corrupt leaders. I was in Manila a few years back when elections were taking place. It really is quite bizarre. The poor and the oppressed elect their oppressor's. It was more like a who's got talent episode than a national election. Most of the locals I spoke too knew next to nothing about the candidates policies, but my word, if you wanted to know what frock the presidents daughter wore to the latest society ball, they knew every detail.

And just to mention, there are many sports where division based on sex makes absolutely no sense. Like, for example, archery.

Darts, pool, cross stitching. Gardening.

Posted in: Success of U.S. transgender woman swimmer sparks controversy See in context

This has to stop. By removing your penis you do not magically become a woman. You might identify as a woman but biologically you are not. You are bigger and stronger than a female athlete standing alongside you. If this politically correct farce must continue, then let us have a class of competitor called "females previously male". At least that would level the playing field for those who change their gender by choice. You cannot be a champion female swimmer if you were born a man. Regardless of how you identify. Biologically, you are male. Does anyone else notice the dearth of females wanting to compete as men? The reason is obvious. Due to body strength they would fail. And yet the reverse is considered OK? I think not.

Posted in: 17-year-old boy assaulted after asking man to stop smoking on train See in context

Perspective needed here. It was an e-cigarette, so no deadly smoke or toxins. Anti social, yes. But was he being egged on by his mates or was he just standing up for a better world? I have to say, I'd take umbrage if a 17 year old schoolboy tried to tell me how to behave (probably encouraged by his friends less willing to do so). I think that perhaps this young lad was not trying to create a better world for all, but may well have been trying to impress his friends.

The vaxx may help with the symptoms, but does not stop the virus from spreading.

Read the fine print. It is the symptons that kill you.

Companies always have good reasons for opposing unions. Most are related to retaining low paid staff who will not collectively question their employer.

How about if you have had one too many and you ask someone to drive you home in your own car. From the info above the sober driver will be unable to start the car (nor will the drunk passenger).

Posted in: Times Square is back open on New Year's Eve — with vax proof See in context

 If the US keeps this trend up it will eventually run out of unvaccinated people.

Which may after all not be a bad thing for those who chose to get vaccinated. Why risk death because of your neighbors stupidity?

Last year, the event was cancelled. Instead, people were treated to De Blasio and his wife dancing unmasked on stage.

Yes off course. What were they thinking? Everybody knows that unmasked singers on an elevated stage well away from patrons are super spreaders. No better than anti-vaxers in subway trains trying to prove a point.
