    Congratulations to england. Not an expert by any means but it didn't look like Hansen had a plan B, as such England's plan A worked for the full 80.

    Our single try from their poor lineout throw, Eddie Jones take a bow.

  2. Anker 2

    Yes TC England deserved the win

  3. Blazer 3

    Eddie Jones the AB's nemesis.

    The irony is that former AB coach John Mitchell who was another victim, is an assistant coach to him with England.

    Go go the bear!

    (Apparently neither bear nor it's trainer tormenter were badly injured but wtf is it with people who think harassing an animal is entertainment?)

    Shocking footage shows a crazed circus bear savaging its trainer just feet away from horrified kids as families run away in terror.

    The performing bear is seen going wild in a Russian circus ring, attacking the man as children scream in fear.

    The footage begins with the brown bear being forced to push a wheelbarrow while walking on its hind legs.

    But the muzzled beast suddenly turns on its trainer, knocking him down and leaping on top of him.

        Well, you know, you're a deer just going about your business in a woodland glade and some bastard up and shoots you. It's really going to put a damper on your day. While it's unfortunate the man died, I totally understand the deer's perspective on this.

    Bad luck for the AB's, though 3 WC wins in a row were always going to be a tough ask.

    I didnt watch the game, but from all accounts, England completely outplayed us.

    But, as always, the sun still rose in the morning. And we get to see the amusing sight of Eddie Jones being compared to Winston Churchill or some other war hero by the English tabloids

    The English should be sent… to fight climate change as punishment.

          Twitter translate is shit and I can't find a coherent English language account to follow but best I can make out, these are ordinary Iraqis protesting against shit services, high unemployment, government appointments under sectarian and ethnic quotas, rampant corruption and nepotism.

    Yeah, maybe now the Rugby is thankfully over our various news outlets will find some of it's precious time to cover..actual news, though I very much doubt it.

  11. mac1 11

    Just to continue the Rugby meme, I see that no-one has commented on the defeat of Wellington by Tasman for the domestic trophy.

    3% of the population produce a winning team. Tasman has also the highest % of 65+ people in the country. Our 3% produces 25% of the national Grey Power membership.

    Watch the provinces, people. It's not all methane and manure.

    Stupid greedy governments everywhere – this river used to give life

    In the grip of the deepest drought in a century, Australia's longest waterway, if tributaries are included, has run dry. Despair is turning to anger as residents blame the government for exacerbating the drought by draining the river in 2017 to irrigate farmland downstream.

        Yet they are voted in again and again. The people do have some power, but choose not to take it seriously. Needed are considered steps for the good of the country, just being okay themselves is all that matters. Westminster democracy is doomed.

        England swings (from a gibbet, it's own political system is like a 5-legged walking race, and Australia's politics are in chaos without a theory.)

    How Johnson and his propagandists work with journalists to deceive. smear and lie.

    (full interview)

    This client journalism allows Downing Street to frame the story as it wants. Some allow themselves to be used as tools to smear the government’s opponents. They say goodbye to the truth. Social media has provided new ways of breaking the boundaries of decent, honest journalism.

    Of course political journalists have always entered into behind-the-scenes deals with politicians, but this kind of arrangement has gained a new dimension since Boris Johnson entered Downing Street with the support of a client press and media. As a former lobby correspondent (on the Evening Standard, the Sunday Express and The Spectator) I understand the need for access. The job of lobby journalists is to produce information.

    But there is now clear evidence that the prime minister has debauched Downing Street by using the power of his office to spread propaganda and fake news. British political journalists have got chillingly close to providing the same service to Boris Johnson that Fox News delivers for Donald Trump.

    Whales and dolphins found in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch for the first time

    This was one of the most remote regions of the Pacific Ocean, and the amount of floating plastic nets, ropes, containers and who-knows-what below was mind-boggling.

    THE GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH

    The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is said to be the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world. It is located between Hawaii and California, where huge ocean currents meet to form the North Pacific subtropical gyre.

    The most common debris we were able to identify by eye was discarded or lost fishing nets, often called “ghost nets”. Ghost nets can drift in the ocean for years, trapping animals and causing injuries, starvation and death..

    The most devastating effects fall on communities in poverty. New research shows the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is rapidly growing, posing a greater threat to wildlife. It reinforces the global movement to reduce, recycle and remove plastics from the environment.
