Newbie (1/14)

  1. Positively racing up the table... Can't see Spurs doing that in the near future... Ramos and Poyet for Newcastle? Odds of 45/1, just like their favourite formation??
  2. We are now very much like a cocktail stick... 2 points with limited nourishment potential!
  3. I fear this is true.. well one too many anyway, who has now departed my team... Now I've replaced him, he's bound to score a hat-trick, make 100 tackles and blocks, successfully deliver 50 crosses... And whether this is in my dreams or his dreams is a matter of debate!
  4. But without the drugs tests...? And you must have a very low opinion of him if you think Dawson is better! Marking ability of an octogenarian with zimmer frame.
  5. Well, as he appears to have gone to Sunderland... Hadn't been that impressed, but has seemed competent, although to say he's an improvement on Dawson, or some of our other defensive players isn't necessarily a lot of praise... It looks as though Berba could end up in Spurs' reserves I'm sure he'll be focused enough to do well there!!
  6. I was disappointed to see the number of athletes 'flying flags of convenience' having formerly competed for a different nation. Are we to expect, as part of the move from amateurism to shamateurism to professionalism in olympic sports, the burgeoning of competitors making sound economic judgements and moving to countries who will pay them most and/or provide best facilities?
  7. When I picked the b******, it seemed a move to Manyoo was hours if not minutes away... And i felt that Tevez and Berba would make a good combo while Rooney was injured and/or suspended, and when Manyoo decided to go three up front! Best laid plans and football... not necessarily a good mix.
  8. I'd like to apologise to all the fans for the poor start Inter have made to the season. You see, being a Spurs fan (masochist) it's just the way we have to start these days... But I'm sure we still have the potential to break into the to 4...
  9. Mr Walker seems to be hedging bets until the very last!

  11. "In the weeks before the 1950 budget, further pressure was applied on the Cabinet by their civil service advisers. Morrison was advised that 'unless the Government can show that it knows how to adopt a pace of development of the Health Service which the national economy can bear, something will have to go before long'. The Treasury had come to the conclusion that the economy was overloaded, and that by elimination, the only avenue open to substantial economies was the health service. This analysis came a year after supplementary estimates totalling £50 million were expected in health. Supplementary expenditures on the defence budget for that year were £62 million." From my PhD... When the choice is welfare or warfare, there really never has been much of a contest. In 1950s Britain the choice was to fight CP or TB. There was only one the elites really cared about defeating.
  12. I met Richard Jones-Nerzic in Heerlen when attending an E-Help event as an associate. His reputation as an outstanding teacher was very much confirmed at the event. My own students regularly look in awe at the dv work of Richard's students. The comments made on this thread by former students I can fully understand, and, as has been said before, are an eloquent testimony to his work with young people. Having read the information here and in similar places, the IST appears to have made a foolish decision at best, and likely a malicious and/or mendacious choice. It would be understandable for Airbus to try to reduce costs given its current state. However what seems to amount to an attack on the education of its employees' offspring is indeed the unacceptable face of capitalism. An attack today on the education of employees' offspring will only be the start of a longer process of eroding staff benefits. All Airbus employees should be concerned at this action. The silence of Airbus, in the person of Les Albiston of IST, is an indictment of the treatment meted out to Richard. As a Trade Union representative in the UK, I would urge all members of Trade Unions associated with Airbus and IST to show that it is unacceptable to treat Trade Unionists in what appears to be this callous and cavalier way.

  13. Arguably those who enjoy it and chose would still enjoy it and be motivated were it compulsory. If Cameron and co think their idea through they will see that the costs of such a move (financial and within the education agendas of citizenship, pshe, work-related learning et al) would in all likelihood be prohibitive. Still, there's no reason to suspect any politician would really think it through.
  14. It's worth teaching RS (and the idea of creationism within that) as a means to broaden understanding of faith. From that we might (stress might) develop tolerance of difference. If you want to change education with a financial or fiscal measure, remove charitable status from public schools, and let them run as the businesses they really are. Divert the funds given back to them to the state school system.
  15. 1) They (aussies in general) will sledge us (poms in general) mercilessly. 2) They (aussie cricketers) will beat us (pom cricketers) several to few. I'd say by 2 clear (2-0, 3-1)
