  1. Paul, not wishing to get into a bun fight with you, or disputing the appearance of same during the JFK era, but I clearly remember back in 1975 when studying for my Child Care Certificate that Affirmative Action found its genesis from two distinct late 1950s British concepts of "positive discrimination" and "positive action" - later resulting in policies supporting disadvantaged groups. Why do I remember so clearly? Our lecturer was born in the Netherlands (I can see her now in my mind's eye), and she was active both on and off campus - socially and political - promoting affirmative action for women and our first nation population. Was she wrong with her 'dates'? I don't know.
  2. Did you have to mention the WBA game Rob. Grrr to Peter Swan...
  3. Paul, the world we knew has already changed, but what to is yet to be seen.
  4. Indeed...including members of my maternal grandmother's family - including ancestors from County Mayo
  5. Jean, I was in my 4th working week with the Co-op Dairy (Sneyd Green) when, on this day in 1957, the Rome Agreement gave birth to the Common Market. My milk round was the Loggerheads/Ashley/Maer Moss and surrounding villages. The 'Agreement' was the topic dominating conversation. But as a 15 year old I'm blessed If I understood what the hell people were talking about. At best I remember people being either for or against the idea. However, I do remember one man in Stanton telling all anybody that the CM was doomed, plus what he had to say about Winnie was viewed as treachery. Funny the things we remember eh!
  6. Hmm, most memorable? He left Port Vale
  7. Clair, we too are very proud to be part off this 'coming together' and, of course, all things Synetics/Port Vale

  11. I wonder if Richie initiated this move?
  12. There may be enough money in the English game, but I wouldn't be holding my breath it will freely flow down to the lower 'Leagues.
