Unfortunately the brainless far right idiots in our society just associate him with the militant part of Black Lives Matter and judge him against those idiots that caused trouble in the summer

It’s also part down to a rise in racist behaviour in the UK ever since the whole leave EU campaign started along with the likes of the EDL , UKIP and Tommy Robinson’s gang - they feel they are justified in what they say
Works both ways though.

As has been seen in this thread. It's implied anyone who doesn't agree with him getting the award is called racist.

Ordered a FJ jacket to be collected in store at a local AG. It got delivered yesterday from the looks of the tracking but I never got a notification from the shop so i didn't go down.
Looks like it's closed now due to us being in Tier 4, so I have an expensive jacket sitting in a locked AG with no way to get it 🙈
Did you order & pay for it online (or on the phone)? If you did, it would be a click & collect item - which is still permissible, even in Tier 4

Some of them are nonsense. The 05 Ashes team and Andy Murray for winning 1 tournament. But it's a different thing to acknowledge someone who has just become statistically the best ever at their sport.
In the best car. Would he win in the worst? I'd watch that. Otherwise, don't care. I'll never get one, don't deserve one either.

Documentary narrators who try to be like David Attenborough and get it completely wrong.

They all seem to try and impart a sense of gravitas but go way over the top, with lots

No.
Statistically he is the most successful, not the best.

Hamilton has done way more this year than drive a fast car fast. He is intensely unlikeable, but deserves his honours way more than some random head of a civil service department who has just done his job.

Rashford should get similar, soon, in my view, and again, I am no United fan.

I made soup and baked bread. If the pandemic doesn't end, or at least the golf course open, soon I might accidentally become a functioning adult. :eek:
I took delivery of a new vacuum cleaner and sorted out the cupboard under the stairs...what's going on??!!

Edit - What's worse is our course is open!
