    Rishi Sunak

    Aye, maybe - or possibly the General Election 2024 thread because his motivation in life is relevant to that. Either way, likelihood of immanent death in his case...remote, eh!

    Rishi Sunak

    Aye, a fair point - I'm not seeing much consistency between the policies he pushed before the 2010 election and what he stands for now at Meta, much more consistency in the smooth presentation and ability to move on seamlessly from one project to another. Clegg's Wiki page says he destressed as Deputy PM by reading novels late at night and that he cries alone to music on a regular basis.

    MMMDP 2023

    Seen nowt that'd amount to podium action - or am I missing summat? Either way, taking a few days off everything - other than hanging with mates, reading books and generally chilling. Feel free to claim minor honours - but no more cash donations to goats!

    Rishi Sunak

    So, discussing Sunak on the way into Wembley a few days back (as you do), I'm of the opinion that he's a kind of PM we've never previously seen (nowt to do with his ethnicity). Specifically I'm thinking his motivation in taking the job was partly its ability to boost the rest of his career and that following what he'll present as a manful attempt to wrestle the massive challenges faced by the country under control he'll lose the next election and in what he thinks a reasonably respectable amount of time will work his way back into finance where he'll actually have a career - as opposed to the likes of Bojo who are more jobbing entertainers as they take their various jobs, or the likes of Major who take directorships here and there. In other words Sunak (who turned 43 last month) basically thought running this country was a step on the way to the biggest/best job(s) he'll ever have, which is likely a first for anyone in charge of the UK. Whaddya reckon?

    The deaD of 2023

    Aye, Liz Truss's parents were way to the left of her, her mum campaigned unsuccessfully as a Lib Dem (despite having previously campaigned for her daughter), her dad refused to campaign for his Conservative daughter. Her folks split up years ago. So, not exactly the Mobiots, then

    Then again, the current standard of Corrie acting means you can't totally rule out a comeback!

    UFOs, Space Aliens and the like

    Here we go again, another "insider" who was one remove from those who really know starts revving up about the need for the US to reveal that it's got crashed spacecraft previously the property of real aliens. Not losing much sleep myself, but - as always - I'd love to be wrong.

    By -Election Bingo 2019-2024

    Aye, I was just being a tad ironic - bit bored with the day job which mainly involves doctoring old photographs on social media to make it look like public schoolboys are greeting a friend with a handslap whilst really they're dipping their todgers into the jaws of a dead pig! By-election drills in full swing, or summat!

    Phillip Schofield

    Keeping this thread in plain sight on the main forum just leads to a steady succession of goings down and rearings up. Just sayin' The man's life isn't in obvious danger and the thread content's supermarket tabloid gold - are we sure it wouldn't be better rubbing shoulders with the jokes and discussions of age old hit records?

    What actually happens in a by-election drill, do they tender for a leaflet drop for - say - some dodgy bunch who'll put new windows into your house and just develop the muscle memory to deliver election leaflets when the real thing kicks off?

    Summer Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    Aye, though also remembered as an American Football player (he started after the Olympics) and there were some mutterings about his two sub 10-00 runs, one hand held timing the other definitely sub 10-00 but in the Olympic Stadium in Mexico City which is roughly a mile above sea level. Bob Beaman's amazing long jump world record which stood longer than Hines' 100 metre record was set in the same stadium at the same Olympic Games.

    Hmm - maybe overthinking this but...are they trying to wind his ultra-leftie/writes for the Guardian son up? Nah, simple mistake, right?

    MMMDP 2023

    Seeing nowt about any podium places yet. In other news the winner specified a charity he'd like to benefit from his incredible talents and the donation has been made. Let's make a better world through dead pooling, or summat, eh?
