Hell, yes.

A day at Victoria Park with the wind biting in off the North Sea? That's a proper football match, which I'd much rather see than any Premiership/Champions League encounter you could name.

The pies are shit, though.

Sounds like Pitoddrie.

I'm sure even the East Fife players used to complain about how cold Hartlepool was when they came down for friendlies. In August.

BONG!

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown will announce later that he will stand down as an MP at the next general election, the BBC understands.

I'm sorry but he won't announce it, you, the BBC, just fckin announced it.

Is anything actually announced any more?  It seems that the media are briefed before any actual announcement from the individual themselves.

Gordon Brown steps up to the microphone and says "I have an announcement to make" to which the assembled media throng reply "yeah, we know, you're going to quit, your office briefed us last week"

True "Not News" in its perfect form.

See also USAnian Presidential Elections being "called" by the media.  Yes, the result may not have been in doubt (although it probably was, especially in parts of Florida).  No, the Proper Authorities should not then give up counting the votes and fuck off down the pub.

Three hits at the news.

Once when it is reported after the fact.

UK rail stations 'getting busier'

Yebbut ,look at the way the report highlights London stations (fair enough they are BUSY) but then jumps to Scottish stations, cleverly avoiding   passenger numbers  at Leeds with 27.3 million passenger movements , putting it on a par with Glasgow Central.
A lot of those passengers are still arriving on Northern Rail's crappy Pacers which will only be replaced by equally crappy used trains from the south, where passengers will ride in new stock  on newly electrified lines  . And that is only scheduled to happen in 2020.

If they ran half decent trains with enough seats between Leeds and Manchester, I  reckon Leeds station would be even busier.

Plebian public sector scum to continue to contribute a disproportionate amount to deficit reduction.

Disproportionate? Let's  start a thread on POBI to discuss.
From where I am the private sector have taken a few hits along the way as well. Stakeholder stock market based  pensions if you're lucky, zero hours contracts if you're not.
Swings and roundabouts really.

That's not really deficit reduction though, more the constant drive to increase profits shareholder value.

I actually had an interest in that game - one of the teams, not some foreign couple.  At least the presenters didn't mention them during play.
