RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 2020/21 Season

Apparently the idea of the game is to kick the ball into that stringy thing the other end of the pitch.
Who knew.
Having blown the Molde off the club maybe we can go Dancing Round Wolves on Sunday.

The only Tom and Jerry were the Hanna Barbera Tom and Jerry which were made up to about 61/62.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Here’s the latest from Senior Advisor and former White House Counsel Bob Bauer.

I was tempted to post this as a new Biden Presidency thread but it serves well enough to bury Trump a little deeper.

He seems to be appointing the right people to allow him to be the face and figurehead or just presidential.

Nice to see they've got their priorities right.

I don't think you can draw a lot from him 'conceding' because he hasn't, at least in his own mind.
That tweet about the transition was after about 18 hours of not tweeting and was obviously not typed out by him. It took whoever was close to him that long to prise his phone out of his pudgy little fingers.

It is looking increasingly likely that he can't muster enough resistance from the GOP to back his ravings and neither has he been able to influence any or enough Trumpists in positions in the four or five states to go against the norm and cast their votes against Biden.

So it's looking likely that it's going to be a whiney exit, I'd guess unannounced and shortly before the inauguration, which he wont attend.

Whether he tweets about it from a bunker guarded by some of his militias as a government in exile or from a dacha on the Russian steppes remains to be seen.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Always someone else's fault.

Four years to agree amongst themselves what leave meant and they still can't do it.
Every damn one of them has directly contradicted themselves since 2016. 

They need to own their own sh*t.

"The Bank of England governor has admitted today that no deal brexit would be more damaging to the UK economy than the pandemic. And we chose to do it to ourselves! I guess he's just another remoaner, what would he know."

I would love to be proved wrong but I don't expect to be.

When it starts, and continues, to turn to sh*t I will not be cheering and laughing but if you think I wont be saying 'I/we told you so' often and loudly then you can go forth and multiply after all the abuse thrown in our direction.

Let the remoaning continue.

"I consider this then to be a national cooling off period. Already, I can sense that folks on our side feel a lot less anxious than they did on the night of November 3, or even a week afterward when it was clear Trump would not concede."

You could actually argue that Trump's refusal to concede and the slow realisation of his base as it all falls away has prevented violence (so far).

Let's hope that continues past Jan 20th.

So do they think there's no money to be made with a deal for streaming in UK.
Or is that maybe to be announced shortly.

RE: The Trump Presidency

Interesting latest Americast.

Trump's not spoken to the press for two weeks and has cancelled plans to go to Mar a Lago for thanksgiving. The comment made, only half joking, was that he's scared they'll change the locks if he leaves and he wont get back in.

Also it's now rare for any of his tweets not to carry the Twitter rider that
'This claim about election fraud is disputed' because it's the only subject he tweets about while the death toll from Covid keeps rising.

"Maybe Trump won't concede at all, but everything he is doing now is not about holding onto power, it's about setting himself up for when he leaves office. He's basically trying to work out how to steal all the silver he can on his way out."

Agreed he'll milk it all the way and scam whatever he can from his base and the public purse.
Once he is no longer president, Jan 20th, wherever he happens to be he is liable to all the state prosecutions even if he's managed to pardon himself in advance for any national crimes.

I suspect he's thinking about starting a war against someone small enough to beat or foment enough civil unrest to declare a state of emergency and then claim this is no time to change administrations.

It would not surprise me for him to declare himself a government in exile and the States finds itself with another Waco though I doubt Trump would be stupid enough to be on site for the showdown.

On my wish list is a battlefield tour of Monte Cassino which is the one major battle I know my dad was in and that he ever even mentioned.

On that specific subject it's well worth going back to iPlayer and watching Garry Lineker. My Grandads war which covers the Italy campaign.
