Re: Time to get rid of the Royal family?

To be honest I couldn't think of anything worse than being born into the Royal family, I'd wouldn't swap my 9-5 life in relative obscurity with any of them, so if Harry and Meghan's motivation behind this move is more privacy I can completely empathise.

Re: Liverpool vs Flamengo

Maybe it’s because I’ve had a few beers but not really sure what’s just gone on with that last minute penalty VAR decision. I thought the VAR referral was to check whether it was inside or outside the area but then the decision got overturned altogether. Looked a stonewall foul to me.
