          I've had an independent thought today that might somehow exist on Twitter.. who knows Dobby take look for me.

          If you get the vaccine and it limits your chances of catching and spreading the virus and everything returns to near normal.
          What happens to the many many conspiracy nuts who refuse to take it ? What kind of trouble lies ahead ?
          Will we ever return to mass Christmas jumpered drunks calling you pal with their arm around your shoulder in a crowded bar on their 1 night a year drinks session. I hated those random idiots but rather miss them now

              The Israelis, who are now pretty much reopened, have vaccine 'Green Pass' passports on an app. Swipe to get into bars\clubs\restaurants\gyms etc. No swipe, GTFO.

                He's only run once, hence I was confused but figured it couldn't really be anyone else.

                  Might have appeared in the news section here. Could do with a bit of variety TBF

                    Will be a nice case study to throw in the face of the anti-everything crowd who will liken “green pass” to nazi Germany “papers please”

                    As a group they tend not to do irony very well tho.

                      They're definitely not the only place doing it but they are furthest down the path. As you would expect, Blue US states are most willing to contemplate it and Red ones see it as the work of the devil.

                        I've had some friends say that already. I mentioned it will be good to show proof of vaccine when going to the pub or whatever and they said it would be like Nazis asking for papers. If it helps things go back to normal asap, I'm all for it.

                        Will just have to wave at them outside while I'm enjoying a pint inside.

                                    Oh ffs. I've got so many holes in my accounts. Are you using a broker? It seems like they are trying to shut you down, which is bizarre as banks are generally super flush with cash to the point they should be shouting it from the roof.

                                      Actually the broker was saying that he thinks the problem is that all the mortgage lenders are working from home and, due to being isolated, are scared of making mistakes.

                                        Not going through a broker though that may change when we inevitably have to reapply in 6 months.

                                        I imagine it's down to what you've said about not wanting to make mistakes. We're both working full time and have a very healthy deposit relative to what we're looking to borrow so would have thought we were pretty low risk.

                                          I suspect Elbows broke many hearts at Cheltenham as the pot is currently a mere €600...

Sent them his ID docs and they closed his account before he could withdraw the money. Plenty of back and forth but they won’t give him the loot. He contacted Ibas who DGAF.

                                                        I had a right of passage today, something which nearly every bike owner in the city goes through. Had the bike stolen.

                                                        I wasn't such a Keane cyclist. Just used it occasionally to get to work. Does anyone use Dublin bikes? They always looked particularly heavy and slow. Might just try and get a second-hand* road bike/racer.

Cant remember the last time I watched a full game apart from last years CL final but this is an absolute cracker. Woeful defending but making for a great game.

They were stalling letting me withdraw from my account (needed it to buy an engagement ring) sent them all the Id docs about 4 or 5 times. Ended up going into a shop and screaming and shouting what crooks they were and wouldn’t leave without my money. Got the loot, got the ring and the rest is history.

We're both working full time and have a very healthy deposit relative to what we're looking to borrow so would have thought we were pretty low risk.

Him saying "ah come on lads, they are good for it, that was only a few bets around Cheltenham" means nothing if they don't pass the required stress tests and criteria which differ depending on institution. He just knows which are more cautious and what they look for.

Won a couple of bets for just over a grand. Sent them his ID docs and they closed his account before he could withdraw the money. Plenty of back and forth but they won’t give him the loot. He contacted Ibas who DGAF. Any other way to get it resolved bar solicitors letter.

Also known as a 4/6 shot when it all washed out.

People will swear to anything they've done nothing wrong, they nearly always have.

                                                                                                                          Seems like a shit settlement for them, when the betting site probably really don't want their T&C's tested in court? Dunno anything about it though. Nice for the solicitor though.
