There was a band called The Liverpool Scene featuring poet Adrian Henry. They used to appear on John Peel's show in the 60s.

Re: United States of Ameristan

Decent article here on identity politics in the US. Trump was a symptom but not the cause. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/mar/01/how-americas-identity-politics-went-from-inclusion-to-division Believe it or not I actually agree with some of Trumps ideas. For instance, if you have immigrati...

Re: United States of Ameristan

I agree with your first line. 74m people wanted that Immoral, lying, narcissist criminal re-elected. If its two forces colliding then i guess we are in big trouble. Just to pose your original question back at you. In Germany in 1933 the National Socialists tallied 43.9 percent of the vote. Could al...

Two words that left me at birth i think Bob. 74m people can't be wrong can they? And if we are looking for c**ks of the school in the world, then nothing more feared than a western despot looking to keep things ticking over without battle with access to a big red button? I wish you well on your que...

Re: United States of Ameristan

I don't know about anyone else but I turned the TV on this morning and the sight of Air Force One flying away from Washington to Florida with Trump aboard brought a huge smile and sigh of relief from me.
Please do a good job Mr. President.

I agree Smudge, however as a fan, our performance against Brighton still pissed me off.

Yes, we have been told the same. We will follow the rules but it will feel a lot less stressful about getting it if the vaccine lives up to its 90% or more effectiveness.

Covid Vaccination

I've just got back from having my first Covid vaccination. They have scheduled 3,000 vaccinations here today. We had to register on-line and then received an appointment time by email the next day. We had a 9 am appointment and arrived there about 8:45. Had to drive through several checkpoints and t...

Re: United States of Ameristan

Without disagreeing with any of the above sentiments about Trump, the question is what is so wrong with society that he can gain widespread support. The answer, for me, lies in the systemic inequality which sees the wealth of billionaires continuing to grow, whilst the majority suffer. The left lon...

Re: United States of Ameristan

After 4 years of watching and listening to President Trump, 74 million Americans still voted for him to be president for another 4 years. It seems unbelievable that the lying, immoral, orange criminal still maintains such support. I don't know if you can watch the Murdoch owned propaganda machine Fo...
