That's some prediction! It'd make for a decent final, though. Two contrasting styles over a long format.

I was in Latvia for the Zhou v Zhao world amateur final in 2013. They were 15 and 16 respectively at the time, but it was clear even then that they were both phenomenal talents. I wouldn't be surprised to see Thep play well, based on what we've seen this season.

I understand where you're coming from, but I think Zhou Yuelong is a potential banana skin for him.

The appalling murder of Lyra McKee has nothing to do with Brexit and everything to do with terrorism. Those who seek to make political capital out of it as part of an anti-Brexit agenda ought to be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.

I'm listening to Scottie McClue on Nation Radio Scotland. His act has evolved a LOT since the 1990s but this is compulsive listening!:

I'll make this my last word on the matter because I recall we had exactly the same discussion on Twitter a few months ago and neither of us exactly came close to changing the minds of the other. Enjoy the weekend.

But Wales is a constituent part of the United Kingdom, which is what the overwhelming majority of the people want, therefore we accept the makeup of UK government. Wales has never been an independent country, not unless you include an eight year period more than 1,000 years ago.

I don't accept that for a second. We will be governed by whoever we democratically elect to Parliament, who will no longer be constrained by EU laws and regulations, which affects so many areas of legislation in this country. And that's what a true Brexit is about - democracy.

One can have most of your principles and be a eurosceptic. Classic liberalism is often eurosceptic. The Liberal Party (NOT the Lib Dems) is anti-EU to this day. I strongly refute your claim that eurosceptics are ignorant & xenaphobic, but these arguments have been done to death

I'm not sure I have any 'contradictions' in my views as such. Some of my views may surprise you and others, but that doesn't make them contrary.

A polite reminder to you that I don't get on with Mr Farage. But as I've been saying for many weeks, I'm expecting his Brexit party to do very well indeed in the upcoming European Parliamentary elections. There is a huge amount of anger out there, on the left and right.

Is a man not allowed to change his mind without being called a 'chameleon'? A reminder that Neil Kinnock was once anti-EU and Plaid Cymru was once a eurosceptic party.

All of George's statement is correct, but it goes further still. The EU is a danger to all of us, whether you're working class or not. If you believe in democracy, the supremacy of British courts and a truly independent British foreign policy, the EU is bad news.

George Galloway is much more in touch with the mindset of working class people in Labour's northern heartlands and the South Wales Valleys than most in the Labour Party itself. He's getting a lot of stick for his decision but time will prove he's doing the right thing.

I haven't - Mr Delingpole once quoted me in the opening paragraph of an article he wrote, though! I shall put that book on my reading list. Thanks for the recommendation!
