You will be pleased to hear that plans for a consortium led by the religion of peace to take over at Blackpool FC have been shelved... despite promises of investment, talks broke down when the ground name was due to be changed to Boomfield road which was deemed unacceptable

I don't know why women tennis players only play 3 sets contrary to 5 btw- they run marathons and want equality so surely can manage 5 sets

There is an answer Mr 3011, but I don't want misogyny added to the various accusations against me. I am actually a gentlemanly patriot rather than a woman hating racist. I hope this clarifies the matter.

Wont accept 5 stars Mr 3011 so it'll have to be 4. Mr Quentin- thank you. I haven't been concerned with what others think of me for many decades. It's just that right now one has to be careful what one says in case, how can I put it nicely, one of our Guardian reading friends puts in a report! That's it for now before I fall asleep in front of the laptop. Have a good evening!

San Quentin - As I'm sure you are only too well aware @A_T (also posts as @politicspunter) has an annoying tendency to try and provoke responses from decent posters by implying that they have posted something untoward eg. racism , anti islamism , neo-nazi etc. He can never provide any evidence for such accusations but , as with all of his ilk , it often results in the stifling of perfectly reasonable discussion .

I was at the golf driving range a few days ago , beautiful afternoon out on the grass area
And there was a family with two young sons playing
The boys were struggling a bit the youngest was only about 7 or do  - golfs a difficult game
But there was another youngster with his dad about the same age playing very well
The mother made a few comments to the other kid about how well he was doing etc
And her two young sons played on trying their best , listening .- And then after struggling on and a few missed swipes the youngest boy walked
any and sat down on the grass facing away to the car park
They had nearly finished their bucket of balls and his mother then said to the younster there’s a few left
But he sat with his back to the range and said no he didn’t want to
