"Oh Si or Robee can you help me post photos here. Now be simple you know how slow I am 🤓"

Aye, it should be simple enough.

Press the Tree icon (if you hover over it, it says insert image).

On the box that comes up, press upload file.

On the next box, press Choose file.

Browse your PC to where your photo is and then double click on the file.

You'll see a preview of it, and just press Insert.

Good match, we really allowed Fleetwood to get back into it as they scored two soft goals but credit to them regardless.

"The ending of Blackadder was basically a mistake which turned into a cooperative work of genius."

Quite an emotional ending for someone who is ex-military, one of the best endings I've ever seen to a series (comedy or drama) - gets me every time...

Just checking.

As for bigoted views, the other political parties are full of them and none are called out, so yeah...

"Because that is where they see the best option to achieve their aims and doesn't affect my statement in any way."

Really, so what's the % split between Russian fake accounts on the left and right?

And why does trying to influence the Right best achieve their aims?

Based on what I've seen over the last few years, it's the left that are extremely malleable and open to influence - although I've yet to be convinced that anyone bar a few would've have been influenced in this manner.

"I think the mistake is to view them from that perspective.
The intention to disrupt and unsettle recognises no side other than Putin/Russia's interest."

Not really.

If you take the quiz results/research as accurate then you can see that Russians are quite happy to try to influence both left and right, and yet the overwhelming narrative is that Russian influence is only aimed at the right/Trump.

The mistake is not to recognise that fact.

Just goes to show that trolls are as Russian and prevalent on the left as the right...

Everyone says things that someone doesn't like or take offence to.  He campaigned against same sex marriage?  So what?  I'd rather he went with his conscience and then accepted he lost than do the Blairite thing and insist that same sex marriage was the right thing to do, then cave and come up with the civil partnership rubbish that pleases no one.

RE: [VIDEO] Everton 2020/21 Season...

What a game...

West Brom were pretty good regardless and give us a bit of shock at the start, but we recovered well and then shifted up a gear after that crazy red card.

5-2 and top o'the league...for an hour or so at least...

[VIDEO] RE:The Trump Presidency

This is interesting:



The good thing about Tim Pool's videos is that he is showing you his sources as he discusses them, so you can judge for yourself.

He also goes out of his way to appear neutral, even though he has now said he will vote for Trump...

"How dare they pick on something which was clearly there because the posh kids do it whilst excluding equally dangerous/not dangerous things that the not-posh-kids do."

Yes, how dare they:

https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/update-on-new-social-distancing-rules

"Nobody should meet socially in groups of more than 6 – and if you do, you will be breaking the law.

This will apply in any setting, indoors or outdoors, at home or in the pub.

It replaces both the existing ban on gatherings of more than 30 and the current guidance on allowing 2 households to meet indoors.

There will be some exemptions.

For example, if a single household or support bubble is larger than 6, they can still gather. Places of education and work are unaffected.

COVID secure weddings, wedding receptions and funerals can go ahead, up to a limit of 30 people.

Organised sport and exercise is exempt."

So exactly which "equally dangerous/not dangerous things that the not-posh-kids do" are not exempt?

Don't think I'm defending this as it's certainly not my thing, but grouse shooting is one item on a list that the media have picked on. 

Not only that but both devolved nations have it on their lists as well...

"With there already being a set of televised debates, I'm not sure what he would have to gain anyway. In fact, so far, Biden not saying much and letting Trump do all the work is maintaining his lead in the polls.

A bit like Boris for GE2019, I can appreciate that strategy.
