    Scottish independence?

    With any referendum I think that there needs to be a clear majority before any changes are made (and I include Brexit in that as well). Anything less than a two thirds majority is too close too me. When it's nearly 50 / 50, people can vote on a whim rather than their true convictions.

    Peter Lorimer RIP

    A hard but skilful player with a thunderbolt of a shot. What a strange coincidence that there's been quite a few from that Leeds team pass away in the last couple of years (Charlton, Cherry, Hunter and now Lorimer) - and relatively young.

    I think Harry should take up painting, (if Meghan will let him of course). Then he can call himself, 'The Artist Formerly Known As Prince'.

    RIP Jean Wilkinson

    So sorry to hear that. She dedicated her life to him, especially after his cruel accident. Wonderful woman who is back with the man she loves RIP Jean

    Kelly Moran - 'A Hell of a Life'

    It's well worth it!
  9. Just read Brian Burford's excellent biography of one of the most naturally talented riders I've ever seen, Kelly Moran. His character shines through the book, both the happy go lucky friendly guy and the demons that were released by his addictions. He led his relatively short life the way he wanted to, and I'm sure that he could have been world champion based on ability, but he just couldn't commit to it sufficiently, compared to Erik Gundersen or Hans Nielsen for example. It's terribly sad to hear that the speedway world virtually shunned him after his retirement and the final chapters were very hard to read. Highly recommended speedway book however, even with it's terribly poignant ending
  10. Another cover to cover read. My guilty pleasure during lockdown (2/3 hours locked away in my front room with a couple of cans!) Loved the piece on Zenon Plech - such a trailblazer in his day and a real entertainier.

    Swindon Robins 2020

    So sorry for the Robins fans (and speedway fans everywhere). Sadly they won't be the last.

    Just a thought, has the Speedway Star ever considered going on 'Readily'? I don't know of how it works in regards revenue for the magazine and if it might actually tempt subscribers to look at the 'free' content instead (there's a monthly subscription to pay, but it's for pretty much unlimited magazines). I get monthly issues of magazines on there that I wouldn't ever think of buying a hard copy, but it keeps my interest going (eg gardening, photography etc). There's some really obscure sports have their mags on there which I am sure wouldn't be viable through hard copy sales, so maybe it keeps them afloat? It might just attract former fans back into the fold again and of course it keeps the sport slightly more in the public eye.

    Zenon Plech RIP

    Such sad news, a classy rider and a classy guy by all accounts. A rider from Poland riding in the UK (along with Edward Jancarz) was real box office news in those days, but they both lived up to the hype and were real crowd pleasers. RIP Zenon

    Ray Clemence RIP

    A true football legend. Either he or Shilton would have had 180 caps if the other hadn't been around. RIP Clem YNWA
