I don't really think that's fair to say. They ran up English cricket scores against Russia and Samoa without conceding at all. Their undoing was Japan shocking Ireland, which put them at a four-point disadvantage in the first place.

I think this tournament has so far turned out even better than 2015, which I thought was the best in a long time. The crowds have definitely been getting their money's worth. Pools A and D in particular have been particularly heavy on action.

/news/20318 Thomas Cook collapses as last-ditch rescue talks fail

Thomas Cook has collapsed after last-minute negotiations aimed at saving the 178-year-old holiday firm failed.

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the tour operator had "ceased trading with immediate effect".

It has also triggered the biggest ever peacetime repatriation, aimed at bringing more than 150,000 British holidaymakers home.

Peter Fankhauser, Thomas Cook's chief executive, said the firm's collapse was a "matter of profound regret".

The link doesn't call it a directive, because a regulation is distinct from a directive, but they do erroneously suggest it came into force the same year it was passed.

.There was no bottled water 💦 we drank water from the tap (bathroom tap at night)🚰 we shared the same bottle of pop... After we'd wiped it with our dirty sleeves, We only had kids tv after school 📺 we rode our bikes 🚲 for hours 🕰 There was no such thing as a mobile 📱 or any other electronic device 📵. If someone had a fight, that's exactly what it was... a fist fight👊. Kids didn't have guns🔫 or knives🔪.The street lights 💡were our curfew or until our mum shouted us. School was mandatory ✏️📒. We watched our mouths around our elders👴🏼👵🏼 because we knew we'd get a clip. Sayings like "What's for tea?" your guaranteed reply was shit and sugar“, where's me Mum" Run off with the milkman would be the answer. Nothing was too PC back then. Happy Days

Reminds me of this flaming pile of shit masquerading as the blurb of a "book":

"May 1974 our street was up for demolition and so we moved into a new house to a place called Flanshaw in Wakefield that seemed at the time a million miles from Thornes I remember moving in a rusty dusty old Tailors removal wagon that used to be based on Northgate Wakefield opposite the place the less well-off folk get married, anyway turns out we got a discount cos my brother worked there ! and sitting on the mattress Nan had died on months before we rode the journey to our new home, I felt at the time I was going on an adventure a mystery tour as looking out the back of the wagon I just remember seeing fluffy white clouds rolling by . And whilst sitting in the back of that old removal wagon slightly confused but also a feeling of excitement and anticipation emotions overcame me as I thought of Nan , And as fantastic as the times were at Wilson terrace listening to Nan's bedtime stories waking up to deep snow on the ground Christmas morning etc .and the playing out too the sailing on those home-made rafts on the frog pond By 99 archers at back of us I never knew then how much of an adventure I was about to embark upon or even what lay ahead for me , mix all that up and those thoughts of missing Nan cos she left us new years day 1974 a week after santa had brought my toys and you will get the picture the Tailor’s removal van suddenly screeched to a halt the brake noises slowly faded as the scruffy looking man driving opened the half shut shutters a warm sunny day, greeted me children scary children in my mind dressed in flares girls shouting and running around in the street skipping boys riding their tomahawk Budgie and chopper bikes popping wheelies! riding past me at speed Girls playing with their Cindy dolls crawling in and out of there plastic made Wendy houses on their front lawns making pretend cups of tea with colourful plastic cups and saucers ! neatly dressed and obviously proud mums talking over the garden gate to neighbours dads mowing their lawns under the summer sun . I sensed this was going to be quite an adventure"

Lorry drivers stuck in IIIWW traffic jams may cause rise in ‘dogging’

Ministers working hard to prepare for a no-deal IIIWW have been dogged by an unlikely new problem with 25 days to go. Officials planning to ease any congestion on the transport links to Dover have encountered the potential for an embarrassing issue: a rise in “dogging”.

At the Conservative Party conference last week, one member of the cabinet confessed that a side effect of increased congestion in Kent from stalled truck drivers would be an increase in the number of lorry drivers visiting voyeuristic sex sites in the Garden of England.

“One of the things we talk about in these no-deal meetings concerns hauliers and their activities,” the minister said. “The main thing is whether they will turn up at the Channel ports with the right paperwork. But there are also dogging hotspots all over the place.” Ministers believe the issue is more likely to flare up with British truckers. “Do Europeans even do dogging?” the minister asked. “There is something deeply British about dogging.”

Where have all the knobheads gone?

If you went back ~10 years ago then it was wall to wall twats; you could barely move without bumping into one. I know people like Russell Brand are still about, but they're far less prominent. Why hasn't the next generation of knobheads risen up to take their place? Are they all on YouTube instead?

This is just like, my opinion man but I think the OP was talking about very different knobheads to the knobheads you describe and deride in your post.

Groping women and doing cheeky lines didn't make one a knobhead in the zeitgeist the OP was talking about, in fact it made one a bit of a lad. In the relevant zeitgeist knobhead were in my opinion useless cunts who took every opportunity to discuss why the common man was awful, the common man being the bloke who did cheeky lines and groped women.

Can you imagine 2009 era Russell Brand doing cheeky lines and groping women? He was the opposite, an out and out knobhead who only existed to stop ordinary, decent, cocaine taking women gropers from going to work in their regular jobs with ridiculous protests for nebulous reasons.

2009 Russel Brand might not have done those things, but 2007 Russel Brand would have done it while his mate was on speakerphone to grandfather of the woman he was touching up, though probably not the cokecain bit. However, given what I found on his Wikipedia page, pic related, I don't imagine he's the judgemental sort. All those things I listed did make you a knobhead, it made you Dappy from Ndubz and it got you on Channel 4's Balls of Steel or mid era Big Brother.

Most people who reckon they're "a bit of a lad" are usually knobheads who are trying too hard. I don't know who you imagine was declaring that the "common man was awful" in 2009, but if it was anyone it was probably other common men who thought they were bringing standards down. You appear to be projecting some kind of deep sea fisherperson related irk back a few years too early.

As for "ridiculous protests for nebulous reasons", I imagine there were plenty about the then-recent global finance meltdown now known as the Great Recession and Brand himself did attend a anti-Gaza War protest, but that seems quite specific. Could you help me out by doing the same and getting more specific? Because right now you sound like a drunk Telegraph columnist.

I think the biggest hint the OP left us about whom he was speaking was the fact that Lee Collins is an apolitical woman botherer who twice won Loaded magazine's "LAFTA" award. I'm not sure how this fits into your description at all.

It seems to me that you're conflating apolitical in 2009 with apolitical in 2019. Back then being apolitical was the norm teenlad, nobody gave enough of a fuck to care about politics. It's only since austerity that the witch burners have become a voice in mainstream politics, successive Blair governments left the common mam with a decent enough lifestyle that being involved was a bit sad.

You can't judge a zeitgeist through wikipedia, wikipedia is designed to distort and distance itself from mood. What you're seeing re Dappy and Nduz is your own desire to project those beliefs on to a view from a neutral lens. One problem or positive aspect of wikipedia is the propensity to change its views in accordance with the zeitgeist. If you check the 2009 versions for the Dappt, Nduz or Big Brother articles you will come away with a very different viewpoint.

Refarding your specific question about Brand, I remember one incident in which he shut down half a dozen offices in a city centre, precenting hundreds of people going to work because of "the bankers the bonuses" which he later said he regretted because he was misinformed, those people were just normal people doing a job and he inconvenienced them for misinformed political ideals.

Again teenlad, and I call you that because while I respect your convictions I take issues with the experiences and understanding that led you to them, you're taking a single aspect of this LAFTAlad's character and projecting it on to what you believe is a template of knobhead behaviour. I do not believe this is knobhead behaviour, hence my replies in this thread, but maybe the OP will come along and shoot me out of the water in which case I will bow out of this thread and maybe start my own about what I believe knobhead to be. But for the record, I am arguing purely in OPfaith, I believe your views on what a knobhead is are directly opposed to the OP's views, while you are presenting yourself as in agreement with the OP.

Instead of trying to broker an agreement, even half-heartedly, he's allowing Erdogan to reestablish a Second Ottoman Empire of whom the fiercest fighters against the most debased terror group in recent memory, the Kurds, will be the initial victims. Besides, of course, the Turks themselves who already labour under Erdogan's crooked and heartless rule. I simply don't understand how a man so wretched, debased and without sense could become the foremost leader in the world. Donald Trump's claim that he will tear down the economy of Turkey can't be believed any moreso than his denials of impropriety when talking with Volodymyr Zelensky, nor will they count for shit for the thousands of Kurds who will die, be maimed and be yet more traumatised by conflict. Kurds who, seeing they can't hope to win a conventional war within their own territory, will enact bombings and massacres against Turkish civilians, which will in turn increase the ferocity of Turkey's campaign and so on for decades. Donald Trump and the enablers within his administration were simply too lazy and self-absorbed to make even the most meagre efforts towards avoiding this, an act so sinful and without merrit I believe it to be the worst thing this sorry excuse for a man has done in office. I have spent the best part of three years ignoring his blathering, his posturing and his misdeeds, but to not even try, at any level, to prevent this, is so shocking an event that I am having trouble accepting it as reality. It is as if the Devil himself were occupying the Oval Office.

What another four years off this will wreak upon the world is beyond my imagining.

Taxes. I've started a new job this year. For my first payslip in this new job, my tax code was 1250L. For the following 4 payslips, it was 1228L; for the final 2, it's been 779L.

As I understand, I should have an annual tax free allowance of £12,500. I think that means my code should stay constant. Could somebody help me understand why it's changed/been reduced?

Ask your employer if they know why your tax code has changed.

And try this service from HMRC, not sure how much it will tell you.

The usual reason that your tax code would be reduced is if you've underpaid tax at some point in the past and HMRC is clawing it back, or you've got another source of income somewhere which isn't being taxed at the source. No idea why it would keep changing like you say though, you'd have to ask the people who control that.

I'd like to have a thread dedicated to muscular women and beefy thighs, but I don't want it on /x/ because I want it to be work safe.

Are any of you lads medical doctors or working your way towards becoming one? I'm interested in hearing how people have managed with the UKCAT (now UCAT), and medical studies in general.

After many years of skirting around the edges of medical fields in academic jobs, I'm thinking of just going for it.

I was thinking about it (and never say never), but I'm comfortable and well paid and I think becoming a student again would set my life back by a couple of years. I think you have to know. That's what they say about PhDs. Studying medicine is a bigger commitment than a PhD; 4 or 5 years in medical school and 2 as a junior, then more training. Still, it's a great career. I sat the UKCAT twice. Got 620 the first time. 740 the second. Buy a book, study the questions. It's fucking boring and might put you off applying, but a decent UKCAT score is enough to get you in. You'll have a strong application if you have shadowing experience in different departments, and long term volunteer experience in a hospital/care setting; admissions like to see that you're happy to do the menial jobs, because that's what a decent chunk of the next decade of your life as a student doctor will be.

Rereading, I wasn't clear. In fact, the voluntary experience and hospital shadowing are prerequisites. But really, you can do a Saturday morning every week. You can have "6 months" as a volunteer with 96 hours of actual volunteering (4 hours a week).

I did the UKCAT about 7 years ago. It felt like there wasn't enough time. I remember there was a lot of verbal/numerical reasoning, it's possible to prepare for it. So get a book and practice.

Are you doing graduate entry or the full undergrad? I've heard graduate entry is really hard because it's 4 years instead of 5.

I haven't decided what route to take just yet. I'm actually living abroad at the moment and figuring out the best path...

Lads, I just saved my light grey rental carpet from a permanent red wine stain with this product. I’d say it's definitely worth a go if you need to get a stain out, and worth having around if you want to prevent the most permanent stains.

Dr. Beckman's carpet stain remover.

It did fresh wax earlier this week which is nothing special, but the red wine is definitely gone which is revolutionary to me. Less than £4 in most supermarkets.

That's not the same poster either. It's just that when you use logic, other people also using logic can come to the same conclusions.

I used to do that. Nobody wants to get it. Use one instead, you'll look like a mongoloid but nobody will be able to derail your conversation with their ego.

Lads don't trust the OP. I also bought this product after reading many positive online reviews. When I spilled red wine on my carpet I broke this sucker out, but found that it actually made the stain dramatically worse. It now looks like I killed someone in my living room, chopped up the corpse and buried it in between my sofa cushions. Also it reeks to high heaven, I had a dinner party that evening and everyone thought I had been cooking raw shit.

Did you cut the interior seal to allow the contents to reach the brush head and then allow the foam to do the work?

This does sound like me.

Doorman in this context would be more like a host, or maitre'd or even the bloke outside Harvey Nicks wot opens the door for people, rather than a bouncer. I've worked in places like that. I have also worked in a 'gastrobar' that had actual bouncers, but posh ones in suits.

I don't remember being rejected from my own establishment, nor have I ever had my name above the door, at least not in a literal sense, with a big sign or anything. Certainly if you googled my name you would find it linked to certain West Yorkshire establishments. Maybe that's what I meant, or I was just trying to impress everyone here by implying I owned the place.

I was also on a lot of drugs back then though, so it's entirely possible I've either forgotten the doorman story or made it up in a haze of coke after being turned away from a nightclub I had nothing to do with.

It does seem like it was definitely me dropping these clues though, unless there was another Leeds/Yorkshire based chef on here two or three years ago too, but I probably would have noticed that.

I do remember the doorman thing. It was the pretentious posh bar/restaurant place, and the bloke was new. He wouldn't let me in, to go to work, and I kicked off. I think I showed him my knives, which probably didn't help, upon reflection.

I was likely off my tits too, so he was doing a good job by keeping people like me out.

Third post. It's okay. The funny bits are in the trailer so don't watch it first.
I didn't like Veep hugely so hopefully my not being whelmed is because it's for an American audience.
