Just like on R5 show "Fighting Talk", you suggest an outrageous thing, next poster defends it and then suggests the next topic. Rules: one sentence each, for topic and answer.

First topic: "George Osborne's​ new job in no way conflicts with his role as an MP"

GO!

It's just a hill. Get over it.

    Pretty much everything George Osbourne has done in govt has been bad - if he has a full time job working at the Evening Standard he is going to have less time to do stuff in government - which as what he does is generally bad is a good thing.

    It must produce a better outcome than the current system.

    Bradley Wiggins should be the next head of UKAD

    A charismatic and popular man will build on his success at generating foreign investment as London major.

    If that is your best argument in favour, I'm definitely not hiring you as a lawyer!

    Mind, in a previous role, I did actually defend the indefensible.

    They certainly perform as well as Sky's Tirreno Adriatico team time trial wheels...

    UCI rules shouldn't apply to teams in their home country.

    Footballerists have home crowd and ground advantage, why shouldn't cyclerist teams have the same?

    But she did give them a master-class in being talked down to by the pompous, overbearing and arrogant. Milk is very overrated as a drink anyway, especially when warm.


    Eastenders.

    Shakespeare provided regular entertainment to the masses, Eastenders is the modern day Shakespeare.

    Umbrella usage should require a licence in built-up areas.

    A study showed umbrella injury rate to be 0.34/100,000 persons (Australia, 2012). The injury rate for cycling was 440 per total population (approx. 3.6 M, 2008) which is approx. 12/100,000. But correcting for distance traveled (approx. 50x) the incidence per km per person is about the same. And we all know that cyclists should be made to have a license anyway. QED

    Making cyclists take tests and get licences will pay for funding for new school based cycle training.

    So what if Adam Johnson is a convicted unrepentant paedophile? Give him a new million pound contract 'cause he's worth it.
