    Yep, you can't go.

          Well the advice (unless i'm very much mistaken, which to be fair is very possible) is to stay at home. So do that?

            Could you not figure that out from the very clear guidelines?

              We are also an excellent wedge to use to get whatever trade deal they want with the Brits

              Not doubting they are serious about the GFA but...

              They have them on the back foot using us, they can now ask for whatever they want in future deals

                  I don't think it's even slightly a negotiation wedge. This is all straight down the line - this goes beyond politics - statements from everyone. They're not shying away. They're being quite brutal about it.

                            Went with Revie for 1st round leader. Great final round last week .
                            Morrikowa (me spellinz) outright . Iron accuracy . Putting not the best on tour but this is an accuracy course 1st . The putting will be tough for all. Keep some in the clip for the swings . Deffo a tourny to lay some players in running .

                              Wind is due to switch Friday and will play much more difficult as it goes on. Definitely more of an in running betting event.

                                    PP didn't just sneak in there and do it, they paid enough cash to keep the club happy - presumably by enabling them to pay wages. I'd imagine the players and manager are delighted rather than appalled with the turn of events.

                                      It should be 'The Square IS hiring'.

                                      I was doing that kinda stuff for them 15 years ago and the joke hasn't changed much unfortunately. I suppose it's a case of 'if it ain't broke, why fix it?'

                                      It'd be a bunch of young kids in a meeting room under fierce pressure to do anything to get camera time and any kind of conversation going and over the years they scrape more and more off the bottom of the barrel until eventually a new bottom is exposed and then they race frantically towards that.

                                      Not that this is too bad or close to the worst but it's a bit like the drunk lad in the pub trying to tell you the same joke over and over again. Predictable and tiresome.

                                        On the proven winning strategy of 'always back an American with a stupid name', I have gone for Harris English and Cameron Champ.

                                        I mean, the guy is called Champ! What more do you need here people. Thank me Monday.

                                                47 days to E-Day in the US.

                                                Despite lots of noise, the polling story is very consistent. Biden is well ahead both in the national vote and a plurality of the key swing states. Trump is the one that needs a game changer and so far is flailing about instead playing defence, especially on covid (you could make a case that this election is really Trump vs Covid). In this 'referendum on Trump' election cycle, he is not making any inroads at all. His favourability ratings are in the toilet.

                                                All great news for the Biden position. The 10/11 has finally gone but plenty of 20/23, 17/20, 5/6 still available. Hoover it up as I expect reality to dawn at some point.

                                                I added a fun little bet to my portfolio. Biden to win 360-389 EC votes at 12/1. Any upside potential I'm seeing is to the Biden campaign as Trump if anything is sinking from so I like this as an upside bet (doesn't take that much imagination either - Ohio and Texas are very close).

                                                Trump's town hall was a shitshow this week (and agreeing to do it on an unfriendly network was a sign of desperation). Biden does one tonight and I expect a steady performance that will boost him.

                                                Onwards!

                                                              I was rehearsing a line for the bicycle shop on the bike to work scheme. I was going to say, with a slight chuckle, after we get over the small talk: "I heard there's some gangster shops out there that will fiddle what is written on the bill so you can not just get a bike for yourself but also one for your kid". Then I was going to look at the guy with a mixture of disbelief at the world and also a nod of inquiry as to whether they were said gangster shop.

                                                              In the end I felt that was too elaborate and just asked the guy "so can you do something dodgy on the receipt so I can get two bikes?". He put his hand up "whooah" as if to say I'm not that type of lady and this is a respectable house, but instead he just went on to say "I know nothing about that. Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

I guess that would mean we can't go to Glendalough on Saturday? As in, i know its technically Wicklow, but its 'just there'. We'd be going on a bus, hence the question.

I was going to say, with a slight chuckle, after we get over the small talk: "I heard there's some gangster shops out there that will fiddle what is written on the bill so you can not just get a bike for yourself but also one for your kid". Then I was going to look at the guy with a mixture of disbelief at the world and also a nod of inquiry as to whether they were said gangster shop.

He put his hand up "whooah" as if to say I'm not that type of lady and this is a respectable house, but instead he just went on to say "I know nothing about that. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. You should speak to my boss when he gets in later" and then went on to show me suitable kids bikes that I can chat to the boss about.

Big impact on unis as it scuppers all their attempts to have students on campus for some of the week (which was a bit of a silly plan even in the better days) in order to justify charging them 20 grand for a masters.

                                                                                                    singular or plural?
                                                                                                    Corporate entities take the singular: eg The BBC has decided (not “have”). In subsequent references make sure the pronoun is singular: “It [not “they”] will press for an increase in the licence fee.”

                                                                                                    Sports teams and rock bands are the exception – “England have an uphill task” is OK, as is “Nirvana were overrated”

                                                                                                    Or... what Mellor said.
