    Labour plans tax theft

    After 4 decades of neoliberalism, yes, I think socialism is wonderful but you wouldn't know that it was if you read the corporation funded mainstream murdoch media that just prints smear after smear instead of objective journalism which it discourages at every opportunity.

    Labour plans tax theft

    It strikes me as unfair. People already pay tax on income prior to purchasing assets. People then pay V.A.T. on many purchases made after that. Why should people then be expected to pay more tax on what is left?
  4. Some real meta-humour here from our self-aware contributor.
  5. It's not one-eyed. Do try and keep up.
  6. Titter, is that the same Spectator that publishes, ahem, opinion columns by people ranging from James Delingpole to Nick Cohen? Not sure that it is the Spectator that is one eyed and lacking credibility.

    That's what I thought. Again I don't think that is a lot in the current market.

    I'm also under the impression that he cost ~£1m. Forgive me for thinking that modest in the current market.

    Many of us knew how it would play out. I had little expectation of a goal in the second half. Couldn't even make the effort to complain after that.

    Grezda signed for a rather modest transfer fee. He has also struggled with injuries. Deciding if we've had a return on investment has some way to run yet. I doubt that we have spent too much on Davis and Worrall. Besides, if we get to the summer and people are still moaning about Davis then we can decline to sign him permanently.

    What money? He left on freedom of contract. Worrall is a loan anyway. Not sure if we paid a fee for him but that would surprise me.

    Quite. Morelos will play though.

    Contrary to what many are saying I thought Davis, Kamara and Kent were good today. Admittedly not good enough. Barisic, on the other hand, was terrible. He has all the ability required yet he shows none of the courage. Gerrard will hate that and happily drop him for Halliday if he doesn't turn it around. Defoe was anonymous. If he reads the gutter press then he will probably see a 2 next to his name. There is no point in playing him if we don't adapt and give him the right kind of service. Wes was good and made an exceptional save to retain a point. Despite having mentioned all these individuals I think that the result was caused by the team performance rather than individuals. It looks like we can't remember how to pass and create chances. This is probably caused by the team relying on a moment of quality from someone like Morelos, Kent or Tavernier. When that happens players stop thinking about picking the right pass or moving off of the ball. I don't expect a collapse from Celtic so I think it is fair to say that this match is the final nail in the coffin of any league title challenge.
