    Late on the topic but here is my two cents: ROS is a bloody genius on the table and always a joy to watch BUT denying a blatant 147 to protest about the prize money allocated to a max is such a disgrace. OK, this guy knocks maxis for breakfast so it might be 'just another one' for him but man, just think about the fans, the audience, the people that actually PAID to see you play.
    Had I been in the audience, I would have been mightily peeved to see this guy potting the pink on purpose and denying all the fans the chance to see a maximum live. I understand ROS's intention was to make a statement but this was disrespectful for all the people watching it...Geez if ten grands is nothing for him, he should realize it's a great amount of quids for a lot of people!!

    So, to summarise. Ronnie has not done something. Something that other players manage not to do all the time. Ronnie not doing it is brilliant, and even rarer than him doing it. To say otherwise makes you an enemy of snooker, because Ronnie is snooker. Argument closed, engage political debate.

    Does that about cover it?

    Has Ronnie not done it again today? Does that make not doing it less rare, or are we still supposed to drown in our own ecstatic ectoplasm, because it's the rocket playing?

    Guidance required, because I'm still not getting it.

    Wait til you get Osbourne, then.

    He's played a blinder so far - cozying to right and left equally. He'll be the next PM, and for at least a decade.

    Russians are not the enemy...
    ...yet.

    Relinquishing trident is ideological folly. Beware the great bear.

    According to my Sociologist daughter I am a Neo Marxist. So maybe we ought to get back to Ronnie before I lose it and post an essay...

    My goodness...did you really just say that you have respect for Putin?! (I would suggest you read some excellent books on this topic, like I have, and you will loose that respect very quickly)

    Anyway...I will not clutter up this otherwise fine (tongue-in-cheek) thread

    So you believe that Putin will invade us if we ditch Trident. This is the military industrial complex rhetoric at work and you're a fool to believe it.
    Putin is re-arming due to Russia's once Warsaw Pact allies now joining NATO, once again the military industrial complex providing a threat that they can make billions of dollars from.

    The war in Syria is also a part of that, a gas pipeline in the offing from Kuwait to Turkey that needs to go through Syria, hence a revolution with the Russians supporting Assad (who's blocking it), and the west supporting the rebels, which included ISIS in the beginning, to undermine the gas exports from Russia, a proxy war in the middle east, who'd have thought it in these days of internet enlightenment.

    You have a mind of your own Leo, put two and two together and you get four, now if you want that four all for yourself then you vote tory, if you have a mind to be fair to all, then you don't.
    I'm not a Corbyn fan, just an old fashioned socialist who has seen the rise of the super rich to the detriment of everyone else, along with the rise of Chris Evans, Chris Moyles, Michael McIntyre, James Corden and the governing bodies of our national sports who have stolen them from us and sold them to the highest bidders.

    Thank the lord for the likes of Corbyn and Sean Lock.
