    They did the same for the paddington bear...they have been coming up with a whole bunch of trendy new products etc so I think there must be a funky few new graduated/middle class art/marketing middleaged or younger students must have joined recently.

    Unless I am missing something, it gives a number for the 6 coin sets but there is no mintage number for the individual coins when I looked at The RM page....not bothered myself as this is a lazy design and wont be getting one. Maybe pick one up in a year or two once the price has dropped. edit, beg pudding, 5,100 mintage. Right at the bottom so total of almost 6,500 for these at a mark up of @700% over spot. No wonder people head towards the 5oz if at all. No ta ! Makes the 2017 sovs etc an absolute steal by comparison and loads were complaining about them then....funny old world.....
  9. From the earlier link before we even played Sweden ! Massive overachievement by England. Well done with limited resources. This is illustrated by the fact Kane has only had nine shots at the World Cup, the same amount as Spain centre-back Gerard Pique. England have been uncharacteristically efficient in front of goal. In fact, only hosts Russia (22.9%) have converted a great proportion of their chances than England (16.1%). That puts England in good shape as clear-cut chances are likely to be harder to come by as the opposition gets better deeper into the tournament, but it also increases the pressure on those whom the chances fall to. Again, only Russia (21) have created fewer goalscoring opportunities from open play than England (25) and Southgate needs more from the likes of Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard to allow Raheem Sterling and Kane to flourish. Sterling, in particular, has failed to really influence proceedings, but that hasn’t been for a lack of trying. Deployed in an unfamiliar centre-forward role under Southgate, Sterling has found it difficult to find meaningful space in central areas compared to when he cuts inside from the flanks for Manchester City. There is also the fact that Sterling is used to his runs being matched by balls from Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva and the creative midfielders at England’s disposal simply aren’t at that level. Some of the football has been nice on the eye, but it hasn’t been as decisive and cutting as Southgate would want. While it can be difficult carving sides open that are determined to sit back and frustrate, the other remaining sides left in the tournament have also faced similar opposition and still managed to create an abundance of chances. Belgium, for example, have almost mirrored England’s route, but have created 51 chances from open play, second only to Germany (54).
  10. This was posted a week ago on the world wide webby thingy for those that looked. Over reliance on set pieces and not much in open play meant that as long as a team didn’t give away silly freekicks or corners......etc etc https://www.whoscored.com/Articles/XocE9YTsiEScOV9QmTp38g/Show/Sweden-vs-England-Are-England-over-reliant-on-set-pieces-at-the-2018-World-Cup and for the record, Southgate knew they would struggle but was enlightened by going to a basketball game and copying their set plays....there was an article about it in the Wall Street Journal....qed.... Great effort by the lads with limited experience and skill. Croatia were far too street smart for them...

  13. More gone. Two vice-chairs of the Conservative Party are quitting their posts in protest at Theresa May's Chequers Brexit compromise plan. Maria Caulfield and Ben Bradley warned the PM her plan would not capitalise on the opportunities of Brexit. "This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party," Ms Caulfield said. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-44785797 Ms Caulfield, who was vice chairwoman for women, supported Leave in the EU referendum. Mr Bradley - who backed Remain - had a brief trying to appeal to young voters. The Conservatives have nine vice chairmen in total, appointed in January's reshuffle. In her resignation letter to Mrs May, Ms Caulfield - the MP for Lewes in Sussex - said the proposed new trading relationship with the EU did not "fully embrace the opportunities that Brexit can provide".
  14. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-36473105 Reality Check: How much UK law comes from the EU? According to the House of Commons Library, which itself concedes that there is no completely accurate way to make the calculation, between 1993 and 2014 Parliament passed 945 Acts of which 231 implemented EU obligations of some sort. It also passed 33,160 Statutory Instruments, 4,283 of which implemented EU obligations. Add both of these together and divide by the total number of laws passed, and you get the 13% figure. But that's not really an accurate figure because most EU regulations don't require new UK laws. They can be implemented in the UK without new legislation, for example by simply changing administrative rules. So, the 13% figure doesn't take into account EU regulations that don't need additional UK legislation to be brought into force. If you count all EU regulations, EU-related Acts of Parliament, and EU-related Statutory Instruments, about 62% of laws introduced between 1993 and 2014 that apply in the UK implemented EU obligations. ".........So what is the true figure? More than 13% but less than 62% - it depends what you count in and what you leave out. It is safe to say that EU law does have a very significant presence and effect in UK law.“
