I used to support Scotland in the 70s World Cups mainly because England were not there. But also because they had Bremner, Lorimer, McQueen, Gray and Jordan. Hard men that could play football.

Funnily enough I watched this year's World Cup on holiday in a bar with a number of Scots. At least half had Argentina shirts on. I suppose they had to get their money's worth. Still the team I wanted won it.

Who are Aberdeen?

 

 

 

you would support Jordan.....after what that man did

Jordan and Mcqueen both went to the darkside and joined Man U...bastards...

Essex has voted strongly for UKIP

Yep you are correct Japan has fuck all to do with it, but the premis is that just an ever increasing population is ultimately unsustainable. 

But that concept seems to be lost by most. 

Its short term gains has very long lasting problems.

Phil Phil Phil, are you being deliberately obtuse.

This was one of the posts on the comments bit of that article in the guardian link.
it totally sums up my view on this subject.
The corollary of this statement is that populations in already densely populated Western Europe need to keep on growing, otherwise economic decline follows.

If economic activity and revenues, affordable pensions and housing are all predicated on ever growing populations, there is clearly something very wrong with our economic system.

But is it true? Do we need endless population growth or face economic and societal decline?

Western economists have been berating Japan for twenty years of such economic decline. Two lost decades, an exorbitant amount of debt, hapless leaders, desperate central bankers etc.

Yet Japan is still extraordinarily prosperous. Real wages have actually risen during those lost decades - while in the West they were stagnating at best. Infrastructure is top notch, innovation is actually boosted by the declining labour force, house prices have gone down everywhere accept Tokyo.

All the while, Japan's population has been ageing and declining. Last year they sold more diapers for the elderly than for babies for the first time.

Economic growth that's not sustained by rising productivity is itself unsustainable. There's nothing against a shrinking economy as long as the population shrinks, preferably a bit slower.

This tired and tiresome narrative of endless immigration and population growth being essential to prosperity not only betrays a lack of imagination, it's unsustainable, untenable and frankly plain stupid

Tonbridge have an AC but they do not have a road running club much to my disapointment. Sevenoaks has a running club as does TW.

There's not many shops to look around in Tonbridge you might want to go to Tunbridge Wells for shops...in fact apart from a small castle Tonbridge hasn't got much going for it. Crappy commuter town that I live in

The bike leg goes passed my front door about a quater of a mile from the end. If it sunny I'll throw water at you.

 slow day in the office hence the posting on here.

Anyhow,

I get a Comuter Coach in to the city now, its load less than the train and i get my own seat every day and it has free wifi.  The journey can sometime be longer but its far more relaxing and comfortable.

Just thought I would let you know
