As will as hanging out here, there’s another place I spew cyber diahhorea and over there we have a dedicated “Taking the Piss Out of Trump” thread, which is now upto 2605 pages (with 15 posts per page)… there’s even two Trump Supports who try their best to defend him (2 of the 4 people on the planet I know support Trump!).
We often refer to them as “that pair of Spangletwats” on that website… 🙂3rd June 2020 at 10:58 am #113606PaganParticipant373 pts
To be fair to Trump, I’d struggle with verses from the bible, the only one I know is from revelations, and I only know that as it’s the introduction to the Iron Maiden track Number of the beast, even then I don’t think it’s exactly word for word…..Pagan3rd June 2020 at 11:25 am #113607
Peggy… I know about Psalm 69, drinking the blood of Jesus and all that, but that’s because Ministry wrote a song about it!! 🙂
(Of course, there is every chance Pslam 69 is completely made up by Ministry for all I know!)3rd June 2020 at 11:26 am #113608
Oh, and there is no curcumstances what so ever when somebody needs to be fair to Trump, the prick has more fuckwittery about him than 2 stadiums full of Goonies.3rd June 2020 at 11:30 am #1136093rd June 2020 at 12:02 pm #113610maverick1973Participant615 pts

300 Porto fans travel and are outside the Stadium for their Famalico away game as the Portuguese League resumes last night. Worrying.
“Almost 300 Porto fans travelled to their game against Famalicao on Wednesday and congregated outside the stadium, letting off flares and with little social distancing being observed.” SkySports.

Depends on how the Porto fans behaved. You get more than 300 on a UK beach or at the park when it’s sunny, more than 300 at some recent protest rallies. We have more than 300 down our high street on a Saturday afternoon, probably a couple of thousand.
If they go around licking each other then I’d say it’s worrying. Or if some of them are either of the high risk group or frequently visit someone of that group then yeah they should know they shouldn’t be there.4th June 2020 at 2:26 pm #113632MikusParticipant218 pts
I think we need to get a grip of the situation. As far as I know, very few people can still attend funerals of loved ones, which must be very difficult and painful for them. Only just recently, Dominic Cummings was being lynched by the media for breaking lockdown rules, whilst the BBC were also reporting from hospitals who were fearing a second wave. Now the same media is happily cheering on densely populated protests of which the police seem to be standing on the side lines watching by. We also have the situation that zoos have to remain closed, but indoor shops can reopen soon. But anyone coming in to the country now has to quarantine for 14 days. The public seem to be leading the government out of lockdown, with the government struggling to keep up. What an absolute shambles…4th June 2020 at 3:19 pm #113636AdlabParticipant297 pts
What do you expect with a charlatan in charge, Mikus?4th June 2020 at 3:28 pm #113637sean the sailorParticipant464 pts4th June 2020 at 4:19 pm #113638
Mikus….when you see the Beach lovers and cars plugging the country lanes it puts the Cummins thing into perspective.. I could never understand the lines of cars waiting for a Beefburger either, Quicker, cheaper and more sensible to do it at home Thousands are breaking the rules daily and will be doing so to morrow, from that point you get what you deserve no good keeping blameing the Govt. and it does not matter which Govt is in office, people would do exactly the same thing and still complain.4th June 2020 at 4:24 pm #113640threepsParticipant178 pts
The quarantine is an odd one. The rest of Europe are starting to open up their borders and encourage tourism whilst keeping to the certain guidelines and the UK imposes a 14 day quarantine for all visitors. The question is why now? Why not in March? As Mikus says it’s an absolute shambles.
Speaking of borders opening up I’m off to Portugal for a couple of weeks from the 17th June and am looking forward to some time on the beach. Will probably miss Liverpool’s title winning game, unless I can bride my better half with the promise of champagne or something.4th June 2020 at 4:47 pm #113641MikusParticipant218 pts
Brian, I accept that government can only do so much with some things, but I think it clear now our government never really had a plan. It happily let flights come in from China & Northern Italy at the start of the year when they knew there was a serious problem. Then they seemed to accept they’d missed the opportunity to keep a lid on it and were tacking to the approach taken by Sweden, which although controversial, was probably more sensible at that point given the level of spread already here. But then they panicked when the Imperial modelling came in, and, claiming to be the new party of the NHS, they protected it all costs to a degree where it forced untested patients into care homes where the virus then spread rapidly, whilst also suspending treatments of other serious conditions – the deaths of which could be around 15,000 last time I looked. They spread so much fear, that even their own ministers and advisors got tangled up in their own strict laws. So we’ve had the worst of both worlds, whilst severely damaging the economy. And now they’re trying to close the stable door 6 months after the horse has bolted. All the while they’ve lost any kind of public authority with policing their measures. They’re all over the place.4th June 2020 at 5:38 pm #113643nine nine nineModerator945 pts
An indication of the potential impact of Coronavirus on even our biggest Clubs if the report below is accurate which seemingly comes with a Spurs Club statement which suggests it might be. Spurs are unlikely to be alone.
“Spurs have confirmed that they have loaned £175million from the Bank of England due to fears that they could lose in excess of £200m in revenue due to the coronavirus crisis over the next year.
With their remaining nine matches of the Premier League season to be played behind closed doors and the possibility of having to play at their empty 62,000-seater Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2021, Spurs are braced for massive losses due to a drop in matchday and commercial income.
Other events at the newly-built £1billion stadium are also set to be cancelled, such as concerts, boxing fights and NFL games.
Spurs are also braced for TV rebates, with a £170million pushed back to the 2020-21 season to protect immediate cash flows but further rebates possible if the league’s return is further delayed.
And so the north London club have sought help from the government’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility, which will provide them with an unsecured loan, repayable with a 0.5 per cent interest rate.
It is a major insight into how badly the repercussions of the deadly virus – which has claimed the lives of nearly 400,000 people worldwide according to official statistics – will affect even the richest of clubs.
Spurs – who this week confirmed they have had one positive coronavirus result in the latest round of Premier League testing – had the eighth-highest revenue in Europe prior to the coronavirus pandemic according to the 2020 Deloitte Football Money League.
And a study by the University of Liverpool in April claimed that Spurs had overtaken Manchester City as the most valuable Premier League club, worth around £2.56bn following their world-record £113m profit for the tax year ending in June 2019.
A Tottenham statement read: “The global pandemic has created unprecedented economic and social challenges and the entertainment sector has been particularly affected.
“We are yet to see the full extent and duration of the economic impact. As of today, it is unclear when there will be a return to spectator-attended live events.
“Due to the significance of income from matchday, conferencing and third party live events such as concerts and other sports, our estimated revenue loss, including broadcast rebates, may exceed £200m for the period to June, 2021.”

Spurs explained that the money will not be used for player acquisitions but “to ensure we have financial flexibility and additional working capital during these challenging times”.
Back in April, the Champions League runners-up were forced into reversing their decision to sign up to the government’s furlough scheme to cut the salaries of non-playing staff to 80 per cent for the foreseeable future.
They added: “The Club has opened a multi-use venue designed to deliver diversified revenue streams and created jobs, homes and schools as part of the regeneration of our neighbourhood.
“We are ever-conscious of the responsibility we bear to ensure the future stability of our Club for all stakeholders and, in doing so, support our communities and our continued investment in the area.”
Premier League clubs handed boost as friendlies given thumbs up
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: “We have always run this Club on a self-sustaining commercial basis.
“I said as early as 18 March that, in all my 20 years at the Club, there have been many hurdles along the way but none of this magnitude – the COVID-19 pandemic has shown itself to be the most serious of them all. Express 4/064th June 2020 at 6:51 pm #113652AdlabParticipant297 pts

Mikus…I think the Govt.no where near ready for what was to hit them. Conflicting views, too much emphasis on statistics and not enough “doing” but it would have caught most out. The argument then may say, well it did not catch other countries out…is not a qualified response in my opinion because
A. Different accountability
B UK obsessed in covering all options.
The only thing that matters to me is we find a way of controlling and eliminating this dreadful virus I do not want us spending time and money on statistical outpourings when the it could be better directed elsewhere. I do not want Politicians yapping away at each other, get working together. I want to see leadership and a strong Govt, the next 6 months we will need it If Boris is not up for the job the next two months will tell us all but I do no fancy the alternatives at the moment.As a PS cut out the daily briefings on TV and Radio
