    European Union - In Or Out?

    It's a pity that the post says refugees and not asylum seekers then, isn't it. Try reading the link that I posted. Or this one: What's the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker? (amnesty.org.au) If you are a refugee you are not an asylum seeker as asylum has been granted.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    How are they "working illegally"? Refugees are allowed to work. Can Refugees work in the UK? | Sona Circle "Legally, refugees are allowed to work in any profession and at any skill level, and they are also protected against workplace discrimination in the UK."
  3. What about Tennis? You win first set 6-0. You are 1-0 up. You win second set 6-0. You are 2-0 up You lose the next 3 sets 6-7. You win 30 games. Your opponent wins 21 games. You lose 3-2. And that's before even going into the number of actual points, which are also immediately wiped out in favour of the number of games.
  4. Exactly. I seem to remember that I wasn't keen when they bought this scoring system in but I like it now. Position in a meeting still counts so they still need to race for every point, and the winner of the meeting gets most points. It does make sense.

    Can someone tell me if this is a serious post or irony because I'm struggling to figure it out. Thanks in advance.

    Favourite Memorabilia

    I used to go round the pits after a meeting and scrape my autograph book across rear tyres of bikes then write down whose bike the dirt came from and the date.
  7. Boxing is different as women and men don"t compete against each other. Celina was quite a way back in some of her races, but ahe wasn't the only one. She rode better when the track improved and showed that she was at least better than the track reserve. Maybe she did get the spot in the meeting because she is a woman, but it's good to have a female rider and it probably added a bit of interest to the meeting.
  8. Celina could get a heat win if this carries on like this.

    It would have been Tommy Jansson's autograph if my mum hadn't had a clear-out of my old bedroom after I left home and chucked out my autograph books.

    Natalie covers Moto GP for BT Sport now. I would assume this is a better gig than league speedway on Eurosport.

    Another good thing with David Rowe is his analysis of what is going on. He did the European championships on Eurosport and gave an excellent heat-by-heat breakdown of who needed what for final positions and stuff like that.

    Ippo v Tigers 16/05/22

    It was someone called Alize Lim. Definite TILF - but a rubbish presenter.

    Considering Nigel and Dave Lanning both did darts, might it be worth looking in the Darts world for someone I wonder? It is very much the Eurosport way to use former participants though. I signed up for Discovery+ during the Australian Open tennis and they had a female former player presenting - presumably because she looked good. She was an absolute disaster. It will be interesting to see if they use her again for the French Open next week.

    He's back. Now we know that the clutch cooler cools the clutch down. Love Sam.

    Warsaw GP 2022 Saturday May 14th

    I thought to myself when watching his first race that he looked like he was riding the track the same as he would ride Belle Vue.
