    Palace Away 5 Years ago

    Was this the game where he broadcast the whole game (or at least the second half) from the back of the stand)?

    We've got a much better defensive record this season than them.

    Lack of enthusiasm thread

    I was going to say something about lack of enthusiasm but I can't be bothered.

    Last Night Of The Proms

    I thought YNWA was rather appropriate in the circumstances. You need to remember that many fans sang it (including City) before the scousers adopted it as their song. Glad they left out the daftest verses of Rule Britannia. I don't know if there's a recording online of the poem being read over...

    Which one? Doesn't matter, I'm still not joining a racist party.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    I get the false readings thing from tests, and about the incubation period, but how does he get 7%? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54031912 Are the countries testing at airports just wasting their time? Compared to sending kids back to school and workers back into offices, is quarantine after...

    Headlines you’ll never see

    Thread pulled for Simpsons-like drop in quality. But not before, if non-footie ones are allowed, my favourite in a Guardian competition years ago for best future headline: "Another languid day's dealing on the London Marijuana Exchange" (and visualise the photo to go with it).

    Last Night Of The Proms

    I'm not sure where I've contradicted myself (maybe contradicted your assumptions). Anyway, someone's edited wikipedia to reflect that one of the sources cited (in support of the notion that Blake knew the legend) in fact concluded that there's no evidence that the legend existed when Blake was...

    And another attempt to raise the level of debate in Bluemoon bites the dust.

    Last Night Of The Proms

    I can't give a reason for saying something I didn't say. I did say "It's not as if Blake had any nationalist intent" and you said I was wrong. His "new Jerusalem" probably owes more to Swedenborgian ideas than the actual text of the Revelation. I have no idea how you conclude that I can't...

    Last Night Of The Proms

    Please? Is a national anthem not, by definition, just a wee bit nationalistic? I'm not sure now what you mean by "the story". If you mean the legend of Jesus coming to England, no passage in the Revelation inspired that. If you mean "a story in the Book of Revelation of Jesus building a new...

    Last Night Of The Proms

    Now, you see that's what the enemy did to us. We merely spill their impure blood on our fields. And yes, plenty of French people think they should revise the words.

    Good job I'm devoid of culture, because I went to Molyneux!

    Last Night Of The Proms

    You cut and pasted from Wikipedia, but the source quoted actually queries the assumption that Blake knew the legend that Jesus came to England with Joseph of Arimathea. Unfortunately even with jstor I can't access the complete article but feel free to cite some evidence that Blake knew the...

    Last Night Of The Proms

    Ah, you found the Ladybird book of Nationalistic Twaddle. Sadly some of the best analyses of Blake's intent are behind an academic firewall in jstor and while his work is steeped in biblical allusions you'd be hard put to get a lot of connection between Blake's visions and St John's visions...

    Last Night Of The Proms

    What a load of tosh. Blake's "Jerusalem" - the one we're talking about or Blake's longer poem (The Emanation of the Giant Albion) - really have little to do with the New Jerusalem of the Revelation. It's not as if Blake had any nationalist intent - he was tried for sedition - and a lot of...

    And Tory incompetence. Another dead cat on the table.

    You are making a lot of fuss about something not important.
