We just had our children's sports day at school.

Nobody wins races in the classical sense, there is no competition, there are no winners, every child gets a badge.


Something very wrong with that in my opinion. LoL

Participation is all the rage.

Competition seems to be something that's frowned upon in our schools .


God knows what kind of example "They" are trying to set by such ludicrous rules???

Then again it prepares the poor wee sheep for all those minimum wage jobs with zero hour contracts with little to no prospects or promotion that a significant percentage of them will enter into, after/or even if they complete secondary school.

They can learn about competition then i suppose. LoL

Only real rugby. Not the soft league version by 'Northerners' like Freeborn...


I'm from the North East where Rugby League is almost non-existent.

Me personally; Union is too complicated for a simpleton like me and League is for Lancs, Mancs and Tykes and those from the Antipodes.

That's me out, I can hear the pub calling, slainte.

That sounds awful.
My son has played rugby since the age of six, everyone got some game time on match day as juniors, but he had to win his place in the starting squad. It shaped him to train and better himself, and to be fair he's doing better than me these days so that makes me smile I did a decent job as dad.
First team rugby player for our town, name often in the local rag, all because he had to fight for his place in the team...it shaped him to be competitive and he will do better than me in life, already is.

Sorry off-topic OP, on-topic Britain will come out stronger in the medium term, of that I'm convinced, but the EU will spank us somehow.

It's the spanking from the EU that is the unknown influence yet, but the commission seem pissed off with us for sure.
I don't think it will be pretty short term, but I'm a medium term thinker with a glass half full outlook.

It's more than just the EU that is an unknown influence.

The repercussions of departure from the union will extend into significant areas of our lives.

With a Tory gooberment at the helm of this nation, i dont see how anyone other than the privileged few can have a glass half full outlook.

But that just my own opinion.
