    It'll be interesting to see how it's priced at Spurs' new stadium, as we've got our own official craft beer supplier! <laugh>
    It's a local company called Beavertown, so I'm not sure if this screams Premier League or not. Supposed to be decent.

    It is but was surprised at how good the facilities and terraces were. Worth a visit.

    I'd choose pubs based on atmosphere
    when I used to go to pubs regularly I didn't bother about the prices
    I would always avoid pubs that everybody turned round to see who came in

    It's six miles closer for me but I'm still unhappy about the move.

    To be fair the facilities are excellent.
    Away fans with a large crowd love it because the bar under the away stand is enormous and has lots of comfy chairs. Nothing like you see at other grounds.

    It's going to be miserable next session with 1500 rattling around in a stadium that will soon hold 8,500.

    This is a rumour, but it could be a really big story if it's actually true:
    https://abcnews.go.com/US/trump-law...perate-attorneys-leave-case/story?id=55861988

    If Cohen's lawyers bail and he flips, then a massive Trump ally would suddenly become a complete liability.
    Combined with the upcoming hearing on Paul Manafort, which looks like it's going to put him straight into jail and things get interesting.
    Friday could be a big day for this ****, but news is coming quite quickly today, too.

    Pretty much anything is fair game, and the bigger the hysterical reaction, the more in need of parody and ridicule it is to bring a dose of honesty to some who think others have to be beholden to their beliefs, even though we don't share them. That's not the same as tolerating their belief. It simply shows how insecure some followers are, and certainly brings into question the claim that it's the religion of peace.

    Pandering to the over sensitive and tip toeing around their nonsense, is a big part of where the problems are rooted.

    Bollocks is thinking parody is 'picking a fight'. Anything is fair game for parody, especially something that people are ridiculously oversensitive over. What about respect for people that have respect for the faiths that islam stole its traditions from? Are they to be ignored because they don't kill people that laugh at them?

    Seems like a decision made out of cowardice to me.

    What do you think the reaction would be if a political party decided to run a similar cartoon competition about Judaism with the sole intent of taking the piss out of the Jewish faith?

    It's an odd story. Is he just trying to get a pardon?

    This is ‘parody’ being encouraged by a political party who are openly anti Islam. There’s no genuine humour behind this, it’s being done in the hope of garnering a reaction, so they can add further fuel to the fire.

    It’s akin to Corbyn setting up a competition to encourage the piss taking of Judaism.

    There was a complete meltdown endorsed on here about a piece wall art that was supposedly anti Semitic, and not decried by him wasn’t there?

    If he’s dismissed his own legal team then it looks extremely likely that he’s going to sing like a ****ing canary in exchange for a plea bargain.

    Like drawing a picture of God? I wouldn't think they'd give two ****s.

    People would rather cow-tow to the nonsense out of fear of a violent reaction, which is cowardice, and it's hardly the sign of a peaceful religion.

    To claim they'll react violently is either a factual fear born from experience, or an insulting lie about the religion of peace.

    Really? So you think that ‘harmless parody’ of Judaism lead by a political party would be met with a shrug of the shoulders?

    **** off <laugh>

    My recollection was the meltdown was more people like you claiming their was a meltdown, but the issue wasn't an insult about the religion per se, but a claim it was derogatory to the race.

    All Abrahimic faiths are bollocks, and fair game.
