    Yes totally played into Glasgow's hands. After all the Glasgow riders only had to travel to Glasgow with their private jets, ride on Friday night and then be chauffeur driven down to Eastbourne, have nap and massage before having to ride on Saturday evening whilst watching the grand prix on their mobile devices as there mechanics sorted the bikes.

    The process by which the Earth heats is know as the greenhouse effect. Carbon Dioxide is a greenhouse gas, meaning an increase in the atmosphere, traps more heat and causes the temperature to rise. The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has now reached the highest level in human history. There is a common phrase in conspiracy theory circles - "follow the money". Who stands to gain and who stands to lose if a conspiracy theory is true. The powers that be, the establishment, globalist banks, call them what you want, own trillions of dollars of fossil fuel assets. They control the means of energy product which in turn grants them immense power and wealth. Why do you think there are so many wars in the Middle East and the US is currently eyeing Venezuela? Control of the oil. A shift to renewable energy would both take that control out of the hands of TPTB and wipe vast swathes of the value off their fossil fuel assets. Renewables are more decentralised, local and smaller scale unlike fossil fuels which are centralised, regional and large scale. You can't have a gas fired power station in your garden, but you can have solar panels on your roof. This makes the means of renewable energy production much harder to control, something TPTB are petrified of. As for carbon tax, we currently subsidise fossil fuels to the sum of 5 trillion dollars per year. Yes there will be a dual cost while the investment is made in renewables and fossil fuels are ramped down. However, once the initial investment is made in renewables the fuel is effectively free. You don't have to pay to make the sun shine, the wind blow or water flow. On the other hand, fossil fuels require the same upfront investment to build power stations, but you then also have the ongoing cost of mining coal, drilling for natural gas and then transporting it to where it is needed. Therefore, if your concern is supply cheap fuel for low-income people renewables are a no brainer. Around 95% of active climate researchers publishing climate papers endorse the consensus position. It is possible that the other 5% are right and these 95% are wrong, but it is more likely the 5% who deny human's involvement in climate change are shills of the establishment who are desperately trying to maintain the status quo.

    I believe the trip to the tigers on Friday night was more the reason for points being dropped and amount of falls. The long journey Friday and racing then having to travel back for home meeting last night would of been very tiring.

    A very good night's Speedway... Woffy got his crap meeting out of the way early, better to do it now than later.. Madsen did what he has done for the past few years in Poland, ie proved himself truly world class.. Doyle showed exactly what true warriors these lads are.. And Lambert and Smektala showed that they are truly emerging talent at world level.. There's not going to be a stand out rider I would suggest this year, with everyone capable of beating each other at any given moment so this could be the closest and best season ever.. What a magnificent sport this definitely is when done 'properly'... Should be a great season of GP racing..

    They will have to put the ticket on the first few hundred,, as won't be many there to purchase them. Maybe someone will buy the first hundred programs and win and still make a profit

    Will watch on the bt sport app Not worth £18 on the off chance buster has actually put a ticket in a program to win £500, it will probably be found in the secret unsold batch

    Of course it was tongue in cheek though its clear there is a significant amount of people who are doing other things other than coming to the speedway each Saturday.

    Speedy recovery to Tom, a big loss for the Eagles , well done to Tigers, a hard fought win, special mention to Paul Starke who has been struggling this season and Connor Coles who should get a chance at no 6 for us

    Another great evening in Warsaw. Atmosphere brilliant until the second semi final when it all went relatively quiet. What odds was Madsen?, should have invested a zloty or even two. Pleased to see Iversen up there after last year's injury, but we'll done Robert Lambert.

    Only a sport as backwards as Speedway would let dogs in, this excluding the people that need them for disabilities of course.

    But Lindgren doesn't have to cheat that I am afraid will never be forgotten of Madsen even the danes don't like him.

    A good race is one where you don't fill in the result in your programme after two laps.

    The system should hold them to account - lying to the electorate is in effect committing fraud.They should be prosecuted for it. Why do people just shrug their shoulders and say ' well they all do it ' ?.I hope Johnson does get prosecuted, and better still does time behind bars , serve as a warning .

    2018 - Guests in NL proliferate. Widespread complaints by supporters throughout the league Last winter - NL changes the rules restricting guests for 'any reason' to under 18s. Supporters respond positively Last night - new rule applies, fans start whinging. This is a typical case of fans wanting fairer rules until they apply to their club.
