    Not really world news, but Open Forum isn’t up yet.

    Congratulations to the NZ U20 team who have just won the U20 Rugby World Championship against England.

    Final Score: 64-17.

    England were defending Champions.

      Haha… they just interviewed the coach on English TV and at the end he said he was rapped, when they went to the studio the presenter checked with Nick Evans that it meant he was happy. Nick Evans found it rather amusing.

        Rapt. Blimey. Blitzed ’em ! Makes up for what the Lions did to the MAB’s.
        A little bit.
        Evening, gorgeous.

            Hey G, sorry didn’t see this last night – ended up going out unexpectedly with a friend to enjoy the lovely (very) hot weather.

            I did see that, the official death toll is up over 70 (79 I think) now, and at least 5 people thought to have been missing have checked in safe with the police.

        You left a great fight last early nite.
        Blazer. 5 foot nothing. Staggered in bellowing. Took on the whole bar.
        Retired un-defeeted. Still on his feet.
        Rendered armless though.

            I thought she did alright? Held her own. Ducked a few haymakers, got in a few quick jabs, quick knee in the groin & then off for dinner.

            She missed the wrecking of the nautical display cabinet. Sails, boats & subs flying everywhere. Didn’t have to clean up the mess. Patch up the walking wounded? 🤕

      Good article – the Democrat’s many failings are being ignored by the Trump diversion.

      Some of the comments on the article are almost as illuminating.

    This will be interesting…. a revenge inspired attack? An accident? A little sectarian violence?……

      Hope it was an accident/medical event.

        Unlikely given who the van ran into. But yes – London has suffered enough without having another nutter in a van causing misery.

        Vile. Seems it was a deliberate terrorist attack by an anti-Muslim fanatic. Lunatics on both sides now.

          Plays right into Al Qaida & ISIS’s hands. 1 dead, 8 injured, Aljaz tv is saying.
          Police treating it as a terrorist attack.
          Driver, anti-Muslim, apprehended by members of the public & taken into custody.

            Agreed – exactly what ISIS wants if it is a revenge attack as suggested.

            It will also change the narrative away from the other acts of terrorism to ‘far-right’ nutters (regardless if these guys are part of some far-right conspiracy or not).

      The US has shot down a Syrian regime jet over Raqqa. They claim it was attacking SDF forces, which they have *advisers* embedded with.

      Damascus says it was targeting ISIS.

    London Police spokesman advises he is sorry to say there are now 79 people who are missing & who they must sadly presume to be dead.
