  1. Yeah, sounds like she’s actually done quite well here. I don’t think having to pay 20m for her own legal costs is what I would class as doing well mind. Could have been worse, but, her aim was to win the case and have her legal costs covered in that. I’ve absolutely no idea how the process works, but I assume you enter these legal situations with the knowledge you may have to pony up for the bill and that bill may be quite substantial. Losing and only having to pay your half seems quite unusual. I genuinely don’t give that much of a fuck, I just read the article assuming it would say one thing and instead it said another.
  2. Have I misread that or does it say that she doesn’t have to pay Barclays legal costs even though they won?
  3. Oh, we absolutely would not be publishing a lengthy statement on our website and talking to SSN about what is a reasonably inconsequential judgement if Bruce wasn’t shitting the bed.
  4. It’s all manoeuvring isn’t it? We’ve made a stink about one of the panel members being biased, and forced it out into the open, presumably in an effort to ensure there’s even more scrutiny on the process. Means nought in terms of the likelihood of the takeover.
  5. I imagine anyone with an FA level 1 badge could rock up to the training ground and they’d look like Arrigo Sacchi in comparison to Bruce.
  6. That’s probably the wrongest thing I’ve seen posted on here, which is quite some achievement.
  7. Giving Shelvey a new deal at the same time was a much bigger problem.
  8. The more bodies we have between Joelinton and the football pitch the better.
  9. Love how much they hate him. It's strange as well like, but then again, they are a bunch of weird c***s. They hate him because his appointment proved everything they spend their lives trying to refute - that we’re a relatively big club, that we’re much more relevant than them, that despite being shit we have a pedigree and a profile that they could only dream of ever having.
  10. Funniest part of this entire saga was right at the very start, during the morning of the Companies House changes, when Edwards steamed in to shit on it and had to delete his tweet after 10 mins because someone at the Telegraph clearly had a word to say Burt had the exclusive.
  11. There’s a risk we’re going to go round in circles, so this is my final post for now. Very little of the wider debate about Labour and anti-Semitism has been in good faith. It’s been used as a wedge issue to marginalise and undermine a left wing political project and the figurehead of that particular project. Every concession aimed at defusing the situation has just ratcheted up the stakes and made everything worse. Having lived the last 36 months I can say with absolute certainty there is no course of action that Corbyn or Labour could have taken that would have rendered this a non-issue. We can debate the merits of Corbyn’s statement - where he said something the EHRC report unequivocally stated members be allowed to say and discuss - until Labour win a majority, but there was already massive pressure from the same bad actors that have turned anti-Semitism into a circus before the report was published that he be suspended/excluded. Whether Starmer would have followed through or not I do not know, but the idea this would fade away is patently false. So with that in mind do you bend every which way to appease these swivel eyed loons or do you draw a line in the sand? Neither is going to have a good outcome. For my money Corbyn’s biggest mistake early on was thinking that all of these people were acting in good faith and they’d actually want to resolve the issue. He indulged them and allowed them to dictate the narrative pretty much unchallenged, until it was too late. Now I think Starmer is cuter than that - he knows what these people are about but he is utterly convinced he can appeal to their better judgement by going “hey, at least I’m not going to nationalise anything”. What he doesn’t understand is that they’re not going to stop until any chance of an internationalist social democrat gaining power is rendered pretty much nil. Even if they get Corbyn’s head on a spike their energies will just shift to screeching about someone or something else. His more immediate problem is that he and/or his GS made a rash decision to appease one side of the argument that couldn’t be stood up in any legal sense so had to be rowed back. He’s pissed off everyone, and we’re going to be discussing this for six months until Corbyn gets the whip automatically reinstated and this begins again.
