  1. How is it codswallop? The video is entitled "Entire Wokeflake MSM Defend STARMER". I thought this was interesting, because having read a few accounts of these events, I didn't think Starmer came across very well in any of them. Therefore, I was keen to see the self-appointed "Voice of Reason"'s evidence. Unfortunately, he doesn't start his video with any evidence, instead engaging in a diatribe about lockdown. Eventually, after a few minutes, he does provide some evidence, from GMTV. Yes, the daytime entertainment show where Lorraine Kelly reviews summer dresses for the over 50s. I have watched the rest of the video and even read the transcript and cannot find any other reference to the mainstream media defending Starmer. He does reference The Guardian "namby pamby pinko liberal Guardian reading champagne sipping types" and the BBC a few times, but not once does he provide any evidence they have done what he claimed (even though that shouldn't be too hard, especially in the Guardian). Therefore, it seems as if his definition of the "entire" MSM consists of GMTV. As I said, these videos are the same as an Owen Jones column. The people watching don't care about evidence, as they've already made up their mind. Same as the people reading Jones' column. That's why they both adopt the same approach of creating a scenario which doesn't exist in reality and then arguing against it. It is confirmation bias for the hard of thinking.
  2. It's funny now he uses exactly the same technique as the likes of Owen Jones et al. by creating a strawman and then arguing profusely against it. Two sides of the same coin. It does show how strong some people's confirmation bias is though.

    No. 15 permanent teams and five "nominated" teams each season.

    20. The same as the Premier League. Therefore, I don't know where this "same teams" argument came from.

    Two sides of the same coin, isn't it.

    How is it propaganda? The Church of England commissioned a report last year to scrutinise previous reports and recommendations made to the Church of England over the last 36 years and establish what progress, if any, the Church has made on racial justice. It followed a public apology at the General Synod in February 2020 by the Archbishop of Canterbury for racism experienced by black and minority ethnic people in the Church of England since the arrival of the Windrush Generation. He also said that there is ‘no doubt’ that the Church of England is still “deeply institutionally racist”. Panorama is a "current affairs programme, featuring interviews and investigative reports on all aspects of life in Britain". Therefore, it seems as if a current affairs programme is merely reporting on a topic some people may find interesting. Are you suggesting the BBC should not report on the Church of England's own finding?

    The real question of course is how many of these pundits actually believe what they're saying and how many are coming out against it, as they want to be seen on the side of the fans? As you say, they have no qualms in taking Sky's money or even worse splitting the market and taking BT Sport's money. We had the same Chicken Little when the Premier League was launched and the Champion's League introduced. Life goes on. A bit of competition might actually shake up UEFA/FIFA.

    'the Donald' Trump

    Hol' up. For many years QAnon has been warning us of child abusers and sex traffickers at the highest level of society. Now we have evidence of that being true, as Republican congressman Matt Gaetz has been accused of a sexual relationship with a child and violating federal sex trafficking laws. Unfortunately, this seem to be the "wrong type of sex trafficking" for the QAnon bunch.

    It must be really weird being in the audience, as presumably the drummer is actually playing while everyone else is miming.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Interesting selective reporting there. Yes, the UK economy is predicted to grow faster in 2021/22, but that is only because we suffered one of the largest contractions in 2020. You can see the figures here. However, more interestingly is if you calculate the overall growth from 2020 to 2022. What you see is that the UK is predicted to have the third smallest growth of any Advanced Economy, behind Spain and Italy and with significantly smaller growth than the US, Germany, France, the Euro Area and the average of Advanced Economies. World Output - 7.2% Advanced Economies - 4.0% United States - 6.4% Euro Area - 1.7% Germany - 2.1% France - 1.9% Italy - (0.9)% Spain - 0.4% Japan - 1.0% United Kingdom - 0.7% Canada - 4.3% Other Advanced Economies - 5.8%

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Do you really believe the EU are punishing us by treating us the same as other third countries? Why do you think products like dairy, shellfish and fresh meat were left out of the trade agreement? Before you jump to the conclusion, remember, the fisheries minister didn't read the trade agreement before voting on it as she was busy with Christmas. Now, do you really think it's all the EU's fault or is it simple incompetence from our Government?

    European Union - In Or Out?

    You do realise the EU are not "punishing us for leaving"? They are treating us the same way as all other third countries. I find it strange that Brexiteers claim Britain is a wonderful country and yet simultaneously have such a victim mentality.
