    Angela Rayner sacked as Labour Party chair and national campaign co-ordinator

    When Thatcher was having secret meetings with McGuinness and Adams at Downing street and you complain about him attending the funeral of a IRA member. When Thatcher was "entertaining" one of the most vile men in the world and nothing was mentioned about it. And when you say Marxist- what exactly...

    Thanks Uncle Rico. That is quite emotional coming from our allies and European Partners. I really hope this is reported in the likes of the DM etc.

    Angela Rayner sacked as Labour Party chair and national campaign co-ordinator

    Angela is a hard hitting MP and I am shocked at this decision. I am a party member but even I have seen that Labour have taken votes for granted in a lot of constituencies. Starmer can tear a new one into Johnson every week, it doesn't hurt the Tories. But he has not mentioned any policies. What...

    Music or not, depending if you like my choice, or taste

    Erimus-I'm trying to lose little bit of weight, so spend time on the treadmill listening to these bands and singers, taking me back to my teens. They haven't taken any years off my calendar but they do send me back in time to my teenage years. Bay City Rollesrs were great. As an odd trivia. Do...

    Music or not, depending if you like my choice, or taste

    I loved the Glam Rock stuff, Slade, The Sweet, Shawodywodie, Mud. Stuff you could stamp your feet to. Then there was Smokie where you could sing along to. Alvin Stardust, David Essex , Bonnie Tyler.

    When, how and why we become Boro Fans? Autobiography time.

    Two stories here- first mine. I didn't even know there wasa team in Middlesbrough. I only found out because a friend of mine at St Thomas's asked if I was going to the match on Saturday. "Eh, what match ,whatyou onabout?" "Scunthorpe" he said. So we arranged to meet up at Albert Park and then...

    Wow. Latest Hartlepool polling...

    My 87 year mam went to James Cook Hospital today for a hearing test-It was booked some time ago. They said they no longer have the funding for hearing tests- she needs to make an appointment with Spec savers. Mam said Spec savers had sent her to JCH because THEY don't get the funding. Mam was...

    Extremely annoying things that try your patience

    I always get stuck behinfd the driver of a car that seemingly does not go over 25 MPH regularly on the Eaglescliffe-Darlington Road. Do these people never wonder why there is always a big queue of traffic behind them.

    This day 1966 - 25th away Boro hattrick scored & we still got relegated

    Yeah- it's funny how memory works. I can;t remember my first cup match. I remember being broken hearted when Mansfield beat us 2-0 at Field Mill after we had already beaten them 5-4 their in the league. (In the return at AP we beat them 1-0 with an OG by d*ck Edwards). At 12 years old I honestly...

    This day 1966 - 25th away Boro hattrick scored & we still got relegated

    Blf- I agree- the following season was when I lost my Boro virginity. I remember arranging to meet a schoolmate at Albert park gates near the swings etc. He never turned up so I went to the match on my own. Scunthorpe were the opponents. Boys End 1s 6d (I think) and even though I was on my own...
