can we move this thread to news/politics or even better have a new topic area - 'tit for tw*t' talk, or 'saddo fencing' talk so every time a thread degenerates into a personal slanging match, esp if it's in a left/right context, it goes to that dark, smelly recess only a few regulars are drawn to?

I'll certainly drink to that

I get that minorities shouldn't be forced into things they don't agree with....which I thought was the case for many decades... but likewise shouldn't the majority decide how the majority live?

Instead of the tolerant compromises of the past today seems like you have to agree, agree to be indoctrinated or its condemnation....and lose your job.

well done Palazio - let's not drag this out any more, but Stirls I agree with you, bit of a flashback to the 80s going on, the loony left has returned, but it will subside, like it did b4, when some of the nuttiness was dispensed with but the tolerance remained, Cameron weren't no social conservative was he? And as for the aforementioned inappropriateness, I'm reminded of French and Saunders' impersonation of the two dirty old men, nothing sinister, just a bit naff and ridiculous. So well done Emma, by far the most interesting thing ever to have come out of Bromley.

I suppose we are all going where the wave takes us and can only hope that we wash up on a pleasant shore.

Anyway, back to tennis....

Perhaps a statement of the obvious, but Emma Raducanu hasn't won a professional tennis match other than at this year's Wimbledon or the US Open, yet she reached the last 16 of the former and is champion of the latter. Absolutely incredible.

I heard that soundbite somewhere too, but it's not actually true. For example, she reached the final of the Chicago Challenger just before the US Open, and got through a couple of rounds at Nottingham.

Itís accepted it was a fantastic achievement from an unknown British girl. What I found very impressive, was her acceptance speech. Obviously well educated, didnít show any nerves in front of a huge crowd and shown to millions all around the world. I doubt if she would of had any sort of training for that.
Letís just hope, she remains very grounded and go on to be a role model for youngsters in the UK, rather than the trash on the likes of
Love Island etc.

When the umpire said 15-0 I genuinely thought it was Emma's birthday.

Hear, hear. Totally agree Painter.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Yes, and talented outside the court, when she went in to a whole chapter in mandarin to talk to her family back home, I must confess, I had a tear in my eye! Beautuful Emma, just beautiful.
