Sunday General Debate

Good morning and welcome to the Sunday General Debate. The Black Caps will start the day  in a good position restricting England to 50/2 at stumps after scoring a respectable 443 all out including a handy knock of 136 by Peter Fulton. Open debate, let rip with whatever is rattling your cage.

    What does “at stumps” mean . I thought the black caps played softball

    • Travis Poulson

      “at stumps” is the end of the days play in a test match.

      Caps – cricket
      Sox – softball

  • Guys…Petal is in hospital…for those that pray, please do so…he is quite a bit of pain, but apparently it isn’t heart related….awaiting verdict from the cutters…but we all know what they recommend.

      Hoping all goes well. Take Care Petal

    • UPDATE: Looks like gall bladder problem…probably whip it out. Petal reports the Morphine and Ketamine are the bomb.

      • Hazards001

        Ouch, HB petal..but yeah..morphine rawks when ya in pain…wouldn’t recommend it if you’re not mind you!

        Sorry I am late to the debate. My best wishes for a speedy recovery Pete!! Hope someone smuggles you in a ipad or similar to keep up with WOBH.

    • PlanetOrphan

      May you have a fast recovery Pete.

    • GregM

      Dr Greg prescribes lots of cold beer. Get well soon Petal.

    • unsol

      All the best Petal – good to hear the drugs do work. Take care, look forward to seeing you back on here whipping the testy whipper snappers into shape in no time. P.s Hope you’re getting plenty of jelly & ice cream :-)

    • Bunswalla

      Any prayers from me would be no use at all, but I sincerely hope you get well soon Pete.

    High time that the Horrid got over the appointment of Susan Devoy as the Race Relations thing me. Susan is a proven and successful battler in her chosen sport and motherhood fields and she will do equally well in her new job. Her qualities are excellent qualifications albeit qualifications that the left don’t know and/or don’t like.

    • Patrick

      Cannot wait for her first ruling – am hoping for a fair, rational, & pragmatic attitude from Devoy. Unlike all the past hand wringers that have occupied this most useless public office.

    • GregM

      Yep, I see today someone is having a whinge that she went to a squash match in Fiji way back in 1988. That’s 25 years ago, the fuckin horrid needs to get over it.
      I think she will be good because she is not a PC hand wringer.

  • Gazzaw

    Susan Devoy is successful,articulate, white and middle class. What sort of qualification is that for the job?

  • Question? If you are not party to an agreement, how can you lay a claim against it?
