    'the Donald' Trump

    Hi Wolfie, I notice you've been posting on other threads, so you're obviously still around, so I am just wondering how you are getting on with that list of posts to back up your assertion that chunky and his commie mates blamed Trump for everything that happened while he was in the White House. How soon will we be able to see your evidence?

    Examples please.
  3. Hartlepool Constituency. 2015: Labour 35.6% of the vote (under Ed Miliband). Elected. 2017: Labour 52.5% of the vote (under that dreadful unelectable Jeremy Corbyn). UP 16.9%. Elected. 2019: Labour 37.7% of the vote (still under that dreadful unelectable Jeremy Corbyn and in a special Brexit influenced election). But still UP 2.1% on 2015. Elected. 2021: Labour 28.7% (under that nice cosy middle-of-the road “I’m not that looney lefty Corbyn” Keir Starmer). DOWN 6.9% on 2015 and DOWN 9% on 2019. Not elected. It’s obviously all Corbyn’s fault.

    Me too, plus you get the two best commentators (as opposed to pundits) in Dennis Taylor and John (Where's the cue ball going?) Virgo. John Parrot is also worth listening to.

    I've warned you before about quoting right wing nut jobs, Bluey. And yet here you are quoting the nuttiest job of them all.

    I would generally agree with your top eight, Rob, except that if you are going to include Joe Davis at all, surely he would have to be no. 1. He won the World Championship every year from 1927 to 1940, when the title was suspended because of the War. He won it again on its resumption in 1946 and then decided not to enter. However, he continued to win major tournaments until 1959 and was generally reckoned the best player until his retirement in 1964 - 37 years as the World's no.1 snooker player! Of course things were different in his day, but I would say you either include him at no.1 or exclude him altogether. One other small change, I would put Ray Reardon above John Higgins.

    Yes, thank you LS for organising it. And congratulations to OFF for coming out on top - just like your hero always did! On the question of Selby and his way of playing, he is an all-round player. He wants to win, just like all the other players, but unlike most of them he has the skill, the tactical nous and the all-round game to make it become a reality. He can defend (boy, can he defend!) and attack, whichever is needed. I really enjoy watching him and his bringing all those elements to bear on the game. I think he is the best player on the circuit at the moment - better than Trump. I think the only way to beat him is to do what Ronnie O'Sullivan did in the semi-final last year and to just bash the balls round the table in an effort to completely disrupt Selby's game, but there's not many who can or would dare to do that. With the class of 92 now looking ever-less likely to win the World Championship - sure they can still win the odd tournament and show flashes of brilliance, but it doesn't last these days - I think Selby is the man most likely to overtake Hendry's seven world titles, but who knows what new players might come up through the ranks in the next four or five years? Mind you, people said all this about Selby in the mid 2010s and it all went wrong until his return to form this year.....

    More importantly, who came second?

    So tell me, Wolfie, if your view is it is not worth discussing the topic on here, why do you bother to post anything at all? The fact is that you and Bluey are still clinging to the ever receding hope that the Big Day is still to come as you are still in thrawl to Q and his fantasies. However, you have nothing substantial to say as there is nothing to say, so you pretend to have this "insight" that none of the rest of us have and the hope is that by continuing to post vague cryptic Delphic messages one day everything will come right for you and you can say, "We told you so." In the meantime, you cannot enter into a discussion because you have nothing substantial to say as everything Q has said has proved to be bunk and you are just relying on something as yet unknown and indeterminate to turn up at some point in the future, but of which you currently have no knowledge and are unable to argue its merits. And that's why you both seize on any crumb of comfort from the nut jobs on Twitter and reproduce them as fact, but, when challenged, cannot enter into discussion and fall back on the "no point in discussing" line or the meaningless enigmatic comments.

    " Line of duty " TV

    I'm sure this must have been Jed Mercurio's plan. I reckon the BBC must have told him series 6 would be the last one but he decided it wasn't time to give up his cash cow yet, so he wrote that highly unsatisfactory ending to ensure that fans demand a 7th series. Judging by the meltdown on Twitter last night, the first part of his plan has worked!

    Interesting article from the extreme left wing Financial Times: https://www.ft.com/content/5715176a-03b3-4ee9-a857-c50298ffe9da

    In all seriousness, the real tragedy of all this is that Wolfie and Blu still believe in "Q" and his/her complete nonsense. I just wonder how long it will be before they realise they have been taken in. Judging by the Moon Landing conspiracy theorists, probably never and the Big Day will always be "soon"......

    However, I'm afraid we have already filled the position of comic in our Summer Show at the West Cliff Theatre this year. I'll bear you in mind for next year though.
