The chattybox - anything EXCEPT football

the coalition will last full term, i'll guarentee you that, when the coalition was put together a bill was passed called the Fixed term parliament bill, taking away the PM's ability to decide when to dissolve parliament and unless the bill is revoked (which the lib dems would never agree to) then elections from now on will run the full term of 5yrs and 3 weeks. labour may choose to revoke it if they regain power.

 

hope that helps

 

i'm a poker guy too. :) i know snap.

I think that we are going to see a lot more independents getting into office because, let's face it, all 3 major parties are rubbish.

 

I kind of agree, do you think the Galloway election was the start of things to come?


I'm afraid to say ring of fire is about as far as my card games go.

 

We call it circle of fire but I guess it is the same thing? I have got very drunk playing that a number of times!

I agree they will last the term but i wonder if they may have done irrevocable damage to their reputations - particularly the lib dems

i'd like to see more independants getting elected, its a more direct form of democracy where you elect a person rather than a party who call the shots generally, MP's nowadays rarely fight for their constituency and go along party lines, having independents obviously means they are more likely to vote/ bring up PMB's that will benefit their constituency.

IF nick clegg had gone in and stood up for the liberals principles they would be in a far better position in the polls, i'd argue they may be close to being ahead, however he proved to be weak and if it had been big vince who was party leader they'd probably be in a more influential role or have more seats due to another election.

 

IMO the best thing the liberlas could have done is after the AV vote failed was to challenge the leadership of the party (lib dems can do this after 1 year after the previous election) Nick clegg was unpopular within the party at the time and probably would have lost and one of the `orange bookers` would have been appointed.

Bull*** is a card game where the players aim to get rid of all of their cards. Normally played with 3 or more players it is often classed as a party game. It is a game of deception and lying. A challenge is made by players calling-out (normally the name of the game) but whoever is wrong has to pick up all the cards in the middle.

 

 

that sounds like a different game i used to play, think we just called it cheat (playing with gran again :D) - all the cards would be dealt out and you had to say what you were putting down. i.e "i'm putting down 3 '4's". you could either tell the truth, or lie to get rid of more cards, or cards that didn't follow the card that had been put down by the player before. so you could actually be putting down a 3, a 5 and an 8, whilst saying you were putting 3 4's down. then if anyone thought you were lying, they could accuse you and you then had to pick the cards up if you were lying. if they accused you and you had told the truth - then they picked them up.

 

is that the same as the one you were on about? (sorry for the long description :p)

 

sh1tface was where you got dealt 3 face down cards, 3 face up cards and a 3 card hand. then other things happened... and the eventual loser was called a sh1thead!

Having never played sh1tface before, after that incredible description, I feel I can pick up a pack of cards and be a master! Thank you :D

    • To be awkward, because, well, I am awkward, I decided not to include the Premier League season.  Being honest about it, Negredo is easily the best forward from this decade in terms of quality.  Even players like Chambers, Fischer, Espinosa, would probably walk into many of the teams we fielded over the decade.  Given that many of those players did bugger all really, I don't want to pick them so it's Championship players only.                Randolph Fabio  Ayala Gibson Friend          Clayton Leadbitter                  Robson Adomah                Ramirez                 Bamford   It was tougher than I thought really.  GK was easy enough for me as it was really between Randolph and Given and Randolph has been pretty much our best, most consistent player since he signed for us.  Right back was a toughy.  I don't think any of them were especially good for any length of time.  I almost snuck Rhys Williams in there to get him into the side but he wasn't that good as a right back so I didn't.  Hoyte, McMahon, Varga, Fredericks, Kalas, Nsue, Christie, Fabio, Shotton, Howson.  In the end I cheated slightly and selected Fabio as I think he was probably the better player out of that lot.  Nsue probably should have been chosen though as he played more games.  Central defenders speak for themselves.  Maybe could have looked at Williams here because when he was fit, healthy and on top of his game, he was a good player or Wheater before he left but they are not in the same class as that partnership was for us.  Friend is obvious at left back, great value signing and played for a lot of the decade. In midfield, I was a big fan of Robson and would have liked to see him playing in better sides.  I think he'd have done ok for Karanka for example.  But you also have to respect the job that Leadbitter and Clayton did as well so I ended up selecting all three.  I didn't think that the likes of Arca, Butterfield, Whitehead, Bailey, McEachran or the more recent lot had done enough to get into the side. The attacking players were a bit tricky as well.  Adomah I would say is the easiest choice as he did well for us over 3 seasons.  Bamford is the best striker I've seen playing for us in the Championship so would have to select him ahead of Lita, McDonald, Emnes, Juke, Nugent, Assombalonga etc.  I didn't like selecting Ramirez as he only had a 6 month spell with us in the Championship and I think he's a *** but he did have a big impact in that time and he was a good player.  I suppose Tomlin, Traore, and one or two others might have cause to grumble about not being selected but I feel Ramirez had a bigger impact than them. I reckon that team gets promoted fairly comfortably.
    • Well, I'd guess Assombalonga, Randolph, Fry, McNair, Tavernier would probably have higher values than say Ayala, Howson, Shotton, Clayton etc given contract lengths and ages.  So I'm assuming the first group is where the sales would come from if it's highest fees were looking for rather than the second group?
    • Why highly probably? Its certainly possible. But not highly probable. Were 9/4 to go down, so the bookies clearly arent convinced. there currently are 4 teams below us and a few within touching distance above us. People are in hysteria because weve been poor without even considering that there are likely to be 3 poorer teams than us in the division as the results have shown so far.
    • Boro cutting costs and strikers signed from Scotland.  I feel like I've seen this one before 🤔
