    Well first console was the Binatone TV Master Console. Although first computer was the ZX Spectrum 48K with the Psion Six Games Pack which included Chess, Horace Goes Skiing, Make A Chip, Chequered Flag, a Survival Game, and Scrabble. Also bought separately was Ultimate Play the Game - Atic Atac.

    What the hell are you talking about? The player must cost £15 Million pounds, demand £65,000 per week, speak fluent Portuguese and played at least second tier Congolese Football before Forest chase the player! Get Real! I've heard Forest are interested in Japanese ex-international Kazuyoshi Miura who currently plays for Yokohama FC.

    Ah good times playing Subbuteo at "lunch periods" (well Free periods lasting hours) in the Sixth Form. It got very competitive! Even painted our own team colours. One worse than that was the dreaded crash back to the beginning after attempting to load "Manic Miner 2049er" . Twenty minutes wasted. Or having to adjust the sound settings on the cassette player to have the right volume for a Spectrum 48K game to load correctly. Whilst your talking about the Football games no one has mentioned International Soccer for the C64. Blocky as hell, but loaded near instantly and simplistic gameplay was excellent. Also the Binatone TV Football(Pong :D) now that was addictive ;)

    Yes it's fine to criticize but you've got to be honest and realistic. Are there solutions? Most definitely! Is his Campaign promises feasible? Yes, but unlikely to be enacted within this Parliament timeframe without serious investment and radical overhaul of the bureaucratic system. Unfortunately neither is accomplishable. Why? No money, the country is technically bankrupt, tax hikes won't generate the revenue. Also senior Management, local and governmental lack the vision, knowledge and ability level to implement the proper sweeping changes required to resolve these issues! Would you make redundant or sack your senior colleagues for failure? In truth the real reason this country is in a mess is that 'WE' the Millennials expect and demand too much. It is easy to 'cast the first stone', but how many people are willing to make realistic concessions? Like the saying goes 'Live within your means". How many Adults pay sufficient tax? How many people exploit the system that the State have to implement draconian provisions? The list goes on.

    For the vast majority of arguments a person can use statistics to argue their opinion and viewpoint. This is why there is a saying, Lies. Damned Lies and Statistics. You can't utilise numbers and statistics without understanding and knowing it's original context and results.

    First rule of politics. Never underestimate the electorate, as David Cameron learnt the hard way! The older generation understand quite clearly why this Country is in the doldrums but are systematically ignored by all political parties. It has now bit Labour on the arse, as traditional supporters for the first time voted Conservatives! Tony Blair bought in the SPEND, SPEND, SPEND and carefree attitude without thinking of the financial and social implications. People now expect and demand far more, than previous generations without understanding the consequences of their actions. You can't expect to suddenly raise the Tax threshold without seeing a knock-on effect on the Economy. This is why tax deductions increase Tax revenue to the government coffers, as increased spending temporarily improves the economy. (This is true look it up!). It is believed changing the 45p Tax Bracket back to 50p will bring in roughly £8 Billion Pounds, but the effect is a slow-down in the economy and lose that same amount from spending. Thus the reason the Conservative haven't implemented a tax raise! Sometimes it's best to keep the equalibrium.

    WTF CC. What damaged Labour was overspending, mismanaging the finances, the Iraqi and Afghanistan war, then not delivering the impossible electorate demands and promises by Tony Blair. When Austerity occurred instead of being realistic, honest and reflective to Labour supporters started to shift to the Socialist policies to which senior politicians originally banished in the 1980's. What we've seen is a divisive, division between the Labour membership, Unions and their ordinary supporters. So instead of listening, started to implement and introduce socialist ideology to which attracted the younger generation, but alienated their core older Labour supporters. Not once was their reflection that the 40+ demographic who were complaining about the mass immigration, loss of localised, traditional employment and services which bought together the community. In essence a loss of their identity. Yvette Cooper said it perfectly yesterday" Labour have forgotten about the Towns". If Labour want to win the next election it needs to reconnect with the electorate, and don't make unrealistic promises. Start by immediately sacking Jeremy Corbyn, his supporters, and especially eradicate the vitriolic, poison ridden Momentum. No party in this day and age should have an underlining hard-core base that attempt to threaten, cajole, antagonise and attack fellow Labour supporters. Somehow the moderates have to cease power back from the NEC - National Elective Committee that are dominated by hard-core socialist Momentum supporters! Then they need to communicate with their electorate, not the senior members or Unions. Only then will Labour be electable.

    Have you actually read my previous comments about Brexit and European Union? Fundamentally the EU is slowly transforming into a Federalist Super state controlled and dominated primarily by left-centralist parties. Unfortunately their ideology fundamentally conflicts with many traditional rules, laws, institutions and regulations to which shaped the United Kingdom. Worryingly what we're seeing is that this conflict could impact Post-War organisations such as NATO which has kept peace. Of course this bias has impacted economically on the UK as well, providing an unfair advantage to our neighbours, with lower costs, subsidizing or welfare standards. Again I've discussed this subject. "Take off your blue tinted spectacles and it is pretty obvious that the Tories are to blame for most of the mess". Could Labour, Liberal Democrats, and especially S.N.P. do any better? The answer is categorically NO. Why? Simply DEBT and No Money. Remember this infamous incident when the Chief Secretary to the Treasury in Gordon Brown's Government, upon his departure, left a note for his Liberal Democrat (Coalition) successor David Laws saying "I'm afraid there is no money." IF this government could afford to fund sufficiently Education, NHS, Police, Defence, Welfare to the levels many demand and expect it would but this country is borrowing unprecedented amount of money just to keep current levels of spending. What about increasing Taxation? Wouldn't bring a fraction of the funds needed to cover the level of spending needed, and it impacts the economy.

    John McDonnell's and Jeremy Corbyn's Brexit plan includes a Customs Union. As a consequence this aligns our laws, standards and regulatory practises for trade and services to that of the European Union. Whilst on paper this is satisfactory it could impact our ability to trade with other countries, especially if our welfare or safety standards must be compromised. This already occurs in the Agriculture and Farming, where our standards are far higher than France and Eastern Europe. It leaves us already at a serious disadvantage, and part of the reason our Dairy Industries is suffering a catastrophic decline. Although the major reason is that European Union, as part of a Custom Union agreement would require Freedom Of Movement.

    Sometimes it's better to promise little and keep the equilibrium until you've solved the larger problem. Until this headache been amicably resolved many aspects of lives cannot be planned as this country is facing a new future. Yes it is a 'cop out', but Brexit to a larger extent is the defining force for this country to make crucial decisions on our Social, Economic and Political future. Whether Brexit occurred or not, Technology, Immigration, Ageing Population and now Environmental impact is now shaping this country and a consensus will be required on what the Union will look like in the foreseeable future. We've put off too many of the important critical decisions until later, failing to make sufficiently adequate provisions and it's catching up with the politicians and senior management.

    The Conservatives can be defended up to a certain extent over their austerity policies of cutting public services if you understand the reasons. Financial institutes including the IMF, Credit Houses and the City highlighted the requirement to reduce public spending, and our debt burden otherwise the cost to service our debts would astronomically increase. This happened to Italy, Spain and Ireland. Unfortunately it's confidence, thus if you don't persuade the financial institutes that you're able to pay the debt the ramifications would mean additional stipulations would be put on future loans as in what happened in the 1960's. The other reason is that pensions for public service workers have increased substantially and the contributions are insufficient to cover the overall cost especially now we're living longer.

    Since Tony Blair reign Labour leaders have always appeared and comes across as resolute, and composed. Whether this is due to Labour candidates using Consultants that specialise in Speech Writing, Body Language and Psychology or rather can claim the moral high ground on policies. This automatically changes when a faction faces the reality of government, and the economic truth of running the country. Exactly. What is needed is clear, precise and charismatic leadership, intellectual, innovative long-term policies, HONESTY (impossible), and a top to bottom shake down of the Bureaucratic, and Economic system. Unfortunately neither Jeremy Corbyn, Boris Johnson, or Sturgeon show an ounce of integrity, nor ability to surround themselves with personnel that will bring change without bankrupting this State! Many Socialists and Liberalists would shudder over the highly controversial comment that this Country needs a Margaret Thatcher again, but this is what is required. No nonsense, tough leader that surrounded herself with MP's from all different backgrounds with comparative knowledge to make long-term Social, Economic, and Technological decisions to re-vitalise this Country. Unfortunately next week we'll probably see a hung parliament again, and a Scottish National Party landslide that will only compound and further frustrate and paralyse this Country!

    How many competent Wing-Backs or Full Backs has this Club owned in the last decade? Only a few including the versatile Eric Lichaj. Unless the player wants to leave, or the club has a financial requirement why sell? Matty Cash has bought another dimension to defence and attack which the team solely has lacked. He is dependent, reliable, highly skilled, settled and is still improving. If this club has the audacity and inclination to attempt automatic promotion Nottingham Forest must somehow keep this squad together and strengthen key areas. Past instances show selling our key assets, then buying a cheaper replacement has usually failed. If and big if, he wants to leave then Everton and other Premiership clubs are going to have to break our transfer record. Then negotiations must include a sell-on clause, like we did previously.

    Have you thought that the problem is demand? 1 in 4 Primary School children are now statemented. The Government spend a basic £12,000 on each child that is statemented at Primary School level. A local nearby authority said they spent 75% on their children services including education. What else should the government give? They can't cut the Police, Army, Social Welfare, Adult services anymore. You say I'm talking shit where in the f**k do we get the extra money? Increasing tax doesn't work as it impacts, adversely spending and the economy slows down. What about chasing large Corporations as Herr Corbyn thinks? Don't you think the HM Customs & Excise haven't tried? Let's just borrow more from the Imaginary Money Tree, oh wait this would affect our Credit Rating and cost to repay the loan. If there was a sensible answer a government would use it. CC I live in the real world, worked in many aspects of administration and understand the working of bureaucracy but the difference I've faced or seen many of those trials when dealing with family, friends, or businesses. So I don't just live in a bubble I've seen and felt the cutbacks as fellow colleagues have lost their jobs, or family members suffering from inept or overstretched services. As this a public forum avoid talking about personal subjects, but know first hand how ineptitude and incompetence can hurt or ruin ones lives.
