Thought this was pretty innovative, was in Birmingham yesterday and stopped off at the Genting Resorts World on the way home. For each raked pot that you win they give you a chip. Each hour they collect the chips, end of the month you get the rakeback in cash, 1 chip=£1.

Obviously benefits the regs rather than the occasional rec but think I'd prefer this to loyalty 'freerolls' etc.



Grovsnor Walsall (i think its the same in all G's tbh) have been offering £1/hour rakeback in player points (effectively cash) per hour spent playing cash for years now.  Recently reduced to 60p/hour in the last few months.  Resorts obviously took it on board to compete.  Haven't been since they started this.  Is it a short term promo or long term?

The government should have listened to the rebels, not tried to crush them says

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2017/12/breaking-government-defeated-on-brexit-vote/

Brexit is fucked now, EU has all the cards. They now have full incentive to give the shitest deal possible knowing that it will go to a vote (They don’t want us to leave we are a big asset to them) and why would parliament vote in a shit deal?

They should just tell the EU to go and fuck themselves when they start being pricks in the next round.

There will be violence on the streets when it becomes more apparent. 

but you could say, as we are leaving, come what mrs.may .....the EU realize a sensible deal is good for them too (brexit money/trade/security/harmony for citizens etc)  So surely give her a deal she can get through Parliament? #nothingisagreeduntil.....

We're not making a hash of it. They don't hold all the cards. Both sides of the negotiation don't exist in a vacuum. Parliament having a final vote seems manifestly ok irrespective of the motivations of those seeking it.the ongoing lack of integrity or grownupness on all sides remains mildly irritating.


agreed

I hope that’s true mate, I really do....

Unfortunately I simply don’t trust the EU (and the remoaners) not to be plotting a way to keep us in.

That's not quite what I said. I think there are massive vested interests as well as plenty of genuine ordinary remainers working to keep us in. I just think it's consistent and fine for parliament to vote on it before the final execution of us leaving.

SPOILER FREE REVIEW (HOPEFULLY):

Went to the midnight showing of The Last Jedi last night and have to admit to being underwhelmed with it.

One of the criticisms of The Force Awakens (which I thought was fantastic on first viewing, less so over time) was that it was essentially a re-boot of the original Star Wars film.  This one felt largely like re-boots of a selection of scenes from Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi around which they've built a new plot.  Consequently it felt disjointed overall and, as a result of trying to cram too many plotlines/characters into it, some of them didn't get developed sufficiently, even in a film that's over 2.5 hours long.

There's also too much of an attempt at forced humour in some of the scenes, particularly the opening sequences which felt a little like a Star Wars parody being played for laughs in places.  That's probably something only picked up on by those of us who've grown up through the films, so it'll be oblivious to the younger viewers who will probably love it.

My surprise is that I seem to be contrary to the critic reviews on this, so maybe my expectations were too high.  My cousin was watching it elsewhere and she had similar thoughts to mine, based on our WhatsApp chat afterwards.

That's not to say I didn't enjoy it overall - it's Star Wars after all and the little kid inside me still wants to know how it develops.  However, if I could paraphrase it, I'd describe it as "Star Wars By Numbers".  Rogue One was a much better film, in my view, despite it being constrained to a general storyline that everyone knew beforehand.

Got Imax tickets booked for tomorrow's Fajita Friday outing.. I to have grown up with the Star Wars universe ingrained into my childhood being a bright eyed 8 year old when first introduced.. have been eagerly awaiting this.. will try to take off the rose tinted glasses but doubt it.. hope its not been over hyped

I should add that I saw it in plain, old flat 2D so the IMAX experience might add something to it.
