    Perfectly written.

    The ‘working class’ spirit and hard work has meant many current generations have done well in life.

    The new breed of Millennials pose a different issue altogether!

    Don't dispute that. The Middle East is an example of what is wrong and US foreign policy has a lot to answer for . As I said though, the World is, and always has been, and always will be, unfair. Wars, though, don't start themselves. Religion, extremes of politics (from both ends of the spectrum) and ideologies are the cause due to people who buy into the 'cause' Unfortunately individual common sense is overridden by the need to conform and the greed and ambition of a few (again not exclusive to any particularly religion or political ideology.
    I wonder what would have happened in WW2 if all the people eligible to fight Naziism had simply 'upped and offed' to America or elsewhere rather than making the sacrifice-for many, the ultimate sacrifice- by staying at home and protecting their families and the way of life.I also wonder how the 'millennials' would have reacted to the 'call to arms'.

    I’m a bit puzzled by this one. How or why would the Soviets ‘upped and offed’ to America. They didn’t have much choice but to stand, endure and fight. You don’t need to be a Grade A student of history to understand that the European element of WW2 was undoubtedly ‘won’ on the Eastern Front - regardless of what you may have learned from Hollywood and Ealing.

    I was referring to the UK. As regards History - you should realise that had the UK fallen then the whole of Western Europe would most likely have been subjugated.
    Whilst it is conjecture, that could well have resulted in a totally different outcome. America may well have considered Europe a 'lost cause' meaning the isolationists would have won the day. Germany would not have made the huge mistake of opening a second front with operation Barbarossa, and whilst it is a stretch that Russia might have succumbed, there is no doubt that all the resources Germany used on the Western Europe re-focussed on Eastern Europe might well have led to Russia being defeated.
    What I am saying is without the UK holding firm in 1940. The Eastern front which, as you rightly say (together with later US input in the West -which you did not say) decided the war, may have had an entirely different outcome.
    Just a thought.

    I fully admire your family for working hard. I've worked my nuts off all my life & sometimes been well below the breadline due to no fault of my own. I'm currently having a terrible time due to Google downgrading my site on search engines, after getting a secure server to comply with GDPR. Because they have done this i'm having to pay Google hundreds of pounds on Adwords, how ironic! I'll get through it, but at the moment I can't afford to get to matches, or do a lot of other stuff, despite working a 60 hour week.

    Mining conditions were only improved by Trade Unions & workers rights now have been eroded so much, that we are drifting back to those days to some extent. There is working hard & there is an "I'm alright Jack" attitude to people who are genuinely in need, that sadly has been peddled by the press, that is owned by far right billionaires, who evade tax.

    There are two sides to every story, but to slag off all young people, many of whom from poor backgrounds have limited chances to get on the housing ladder, or get a decent job is wrong.

    These badges were spotted at the match yesterday being given out, only change that was made was they replaced the badge with the old Toby tyke badge.

    The old Toby tyke is definitely owned by the club. And should require consent.

    Yeah, that’s even more an obvious infringement.

    The whole things embarrassing to be fair.

    Prefer ‘ Unified ‘ than ‘United’ , even though I agreed with the sentiment there’s something about the word united that irritates me

    What is embarrassing is the bloke who racially abused Pinnock yesterday and then grabbed the arm of the woman who complained to him.
    Also, embarrassing the thug who hit the Charlton steward

    Needs more than a ***** 70s badge to sort that out.

    I don’t agree with that behaviour at all - but I’m specifically talking about the badge here.

    And if these were being handed out yesterday, where were all the badge wearing folk stepping in to help?

    The badge is divisive itself and totally archaic in its presentation and text.
