I was 8 when Mikka Hakkinen winning the F1 title in 1998. Probably still the best looking F1 car going.

Wembley at the 1999 second division playoff final - Gillingham vs Man City. Vividly remember the City equaliser (we were Gillingham). 2-0 up with under 2 minutes to play, we lost on pens and Tony Pulis was sacked.

Bit later but it was the first time I'd ever seen cricket - India tour of England in 2002 which was on channel 4. I watched every day, the graphics had a horrific orange and blue colour scheme and Tendulkar terrorised everyone IIRC

2020 must be a 13 month year

Found that in here, and can' believe there are 7ppl that have chucked him £5,000, and almost £150,000 total.

£10k costs and £135k dividends?

Genuinely rofl'd at the blurb describing himself as a "deep data analyst"

This guy is an Aussie comedian/YouTuber who wasn't really known until lockdown. Then he started releasing these videos of him cooking proper food and starting a war against packet food and jar sauce. They've taken off and are very good. The recipes work as well, I've made a few of them. Be warned, if you do make them, then they make a lot of portions.

Oh, and NSFW for copious amounts of swearing.

Thanks for posting, this channel is incred. Literally crying watching the leek and potato soup vid

Its just super lol that the same people who buy a lottery ticket every week require proof of significant and immediate benefit to wear a mask

Thinking about this more, the decisions on tiers etc are made with way less evidence than they have for the usefulness of vitamin D.

I've been working at JBC (Joint Biosecurity Centre) since June as a data scientist. We're one of the organisations that crunches the numbers and suggests intervention levels. The methodology for selecting tiers will probably never be published, but my team (international assessments) published our risk assessment methodology last week, which may be of interest:

I would be very surprised if the methodology for assigning local authorities to tiers is much different

I didn't vote for brexit and have never voted blue but seems like an absurd waste of talent if he's sacked over this.

5. A UK top 10 single by The Prodigy.

Incorrect Answers : 9 Points
DMorgan : Dances with Wolves

Dropped a clanger there, we listened to Omen in the dressing room before every match when I used to play ice hockey. Spent a good 10 minutes racking my brains for it but no cigar!

Fume Cupboard : 1 Point ( excellent answer - didn’t have it on my list but definitely correct)

Bit of a tap in that one, I can't remember the exact circumstances but I did something in a chemistry class that resulted in bromine gas and the class being sent outside Cheesy

Thanks for running Hutch Smiley

Iain Duncan Smith “During the past week we have seen the biggest manufactured display of fake outrage I can remember”

Boris suspends total of 4 sitting days for parliament and comrade Corbyn calls for activists to “shut down” Britain’s cities, to occupy bridges and blockade roads. We see the usual protests by placard waving vegans and Boris compared to Hitler by the loony John McDonnell. Just lol.


* suspends four currently scheduled sitting days and removes the option for MPs to vote in favour of sitting for a further 23 days. The extra bit obv significantly more impactful than the first as you well know  Wink

The occupy bit is obv pretty eyeroll

Why the backstop is a problem and will need a *political* solution acceptable to *both* sides in N. Ireland.

a deep dive into the issue threatening to export Brexit chaos south, east *&* to the continent

A decent explainer

Excellent explainer, thanks for posting

So the backstop isn’t acceptable to unionists in NI because it amounts to direct rule from Brussels and therefore from Dublin.

Backstop contains a unilateral break clause for UK if it causes violence, but that clause incentivises unionist violence to get out of it

In that scenario, who are the unionists shooting at? Sinn Féin politicians who support the backstop?

If it really is about the union over all else, shouldn’t support for no deal in NI be growing substantially?

What I don’t get here is that if we choose to vote against no deal, but also vote against an extension, we still leave with no deal?

I also think a GE will be called - But unless she wins a lot bigger majority, then what does it solve?

At what point do we just revoke leaving, because we can’t solve it. And whilst the brexiters May hate a second vote, it may genuinely be the only way to avoid Brexit being stopped.

Any result where the DUP aren't required to prop up the government solves the Irish border customs checks issue. We can leave the single market and customs union have a customs border down the Irish Sea without endangering the peace in NI.

You keep talking like a second ref will solve everything.

What if the result is exactly the same maestro?

This assumes that there wold be another open ended question on the ballot paper which would be a pretty absurd thing to do given where we are. A second vote would be some combination of Remain/Mays Deal/No Deal all of which are pretty explicit instructions.

So, what do you think (not want) will happen next week?

TUE: May offers her immediate resignation to get the deal through. Brexiteers hold their nose and vote for it to get a shot at Boris/Gove vs Javid/Hunt in the final round of the leadership contest and winning a landslide amongst the Tory membership.

If the deal doesn't get through I think it goes as Aaron described and TMay calls for a GE.

TMay going for Norway/soft brexit options is the least likely of all options imo, she's the truest of true blues, met her husband at a party dinner, its literally her life. Soft brexit ruptures the party like nothing else, maybe terrible read but I think she'll fall on her sword for her deal before she'd countenance EEA.

United States of Europe is literally 0% to happen - wet dream of the most ardent europhiles and a handy drum for the eurosceptic press outlets to beat.

Nowhere near enough popular support for it
