It will be interesting to see if this approach cuts through. I'm expecting at least one poll tonight which asks how corrupt voters think BoJo is https://t.co/uqBoQ19Xdx

    "The latest move by LAB has been to highlight the “free holiday” that Johnson had with Zac Goldsmith – the ex-Tory MP who lost the last two elections out of three and then was made a peer by Johnson."

    The paper I bought today (Daily Star, they'd run out of Expresses and I can't afford broadsheets) - Said this-

    Bozo Off Hook-
    Bozo Johnson's holiday to Marbella at Tory peer Zac Goldsmith's villa has been declared in accordance with rules.
    Labour's deputy Angela Rayner said it had not been declared. But a Downing Street spokesman said "The Prime Minister met transparency requirement requirements in relation to this"

    Saffers going very well, 144/2 after 16.4
    180 or so, to chase 2nd place in the league, not that England will care too much if it means the convicts get knocked out…

    I think I’ll be watching the ball closely for the next couple of hours!
  • Its a risk but politics is a risk.

    There are several fundamentals:
    The Tories truly are corrupt. Openly, brazenly. So there isn't a "Jennifer's Ear" risk where they get caught in a lie
    The public don't care. Previous political standards have been set aside.

    So this either cuts through or it doesn't - I don't see the downside in taking the risk in calling a corrupt party out as corrupt. Also, with the Electoral Commission about to report and the Independent Standards Commissioner about to go into bat there is plenty of new material that could follow quickly.

    Build a narrative that takes on a life of its own and the gamble pays off.

    Smarkets has some way to go before I will trust them with any serious money. I have about GBP500 there. They've also been quite annoying in the past. Betfair has a longer standing and I trust them more. They're a much bigger company anyway.

    Should either go bust you're probably going to be screwed as to your money.

    So Smarkets have a liquidity issue in that nobody has so much money there. They also have the ridiculous chance percentage system which makes total sense in the abstract, but runs against far too many accustomed habits.

    131 is the key score for SA. I would be seriously disappointed if England did not get that.
    Edit I think England's run rate is such that they have nothing to fear

  • SandpitSandpit Posts: 34,925
    131 runs seems to be the consensus, several sources for it now.
  • TimTTimT Posts: 4,707

    Have run the numbers.
    If England score 86 or less, it's SA, Aus, Eng, and England knocked out.
    87-105, and it's SA, Eng, Aus, and Australia knocked out.
    106-131 and it's Eng, SA, Aus, with Australia knocked out.
    132+ and it's Eng, Aus, SA, with SA knocked out.
    (someone might want to check my numbers, but that's what I've got)

    Thanks

    So England all out for 120 is about the sweet spot?

  • ydoethurydoethur Posts: 43,075
    Although come to think of it, England batting at a consistent six an over and finishing on 120-0, deliberately falling just short of knocking SA would be much more annoying for the Aussies...

    Thanks. Got an ACCA on England highest first wicket partnership, highest powerplay, most 4s and most 6s.

    Just realised that's a much harder bet to win when batting second as can run out of runs to chase and have too many 6s but not enough 4s or vice versa.

    Wonderful moment on HIGNFY involving Giles Brandreth:*

    Brandreth; 'he is such a gentleman. Edwina told me that when they shared a bath he always sat with his back to the taps.'
    Merton: 'I'd have sat with my back to her.'

    Well he was running his mouth about plus sized bets on a labour lead, despite the clear lack of any bookmaker offering that bet.

    A Labour lead in Scotland would certainly cheer me up

    The end of Johnson and Nippy would be cause for celebration. Much less concerned about the Labour lead, than seeing the back of Boris the Clown and Wee Jimmy Krankie. That would be such a bonus.

    Unfortunately, “at the ground” and “with access to Betfair” are mutually exclusive in this part of the world.

    Was wondering if anyone here can take advantage, if I were to post W, 4 and 6 as quickly as possible?
    The BBC prog had it showing get done at tennis matches. They were using a mobile phone line to someone on the other end on Bet365.

    I think the delay between you posting and us getting the info would be too long.

    What's the sweet spot of just enough people getting ill/dying to keep Boris in trouble, but not enough to make his haters feel like they're wishing bad on people?
    You really are a piece of work. Nobody thinks that.

    I've got a few grand down on a Labour poll lead..

    That's funny, so did Correcthorsebattery.

    But no betting market existed before today.
    Considering how CHB was on here yesterday saying how "down" he was feeling and hoping for a Labour lead to cheer him up, sticking the boot in really helps- not.

    There was an earlier Smarkets market for a Labour lead bet so ease off!
    Yeah and it traded about £1700 while CHB claimed to have traded about 8 grand. Why didn't he just say who he had the bet with? Hardly a personal question
    Bearing in mind what I said, for once don't you think it might be worth just saying nothing.
    Not really. I am pointing out to you that the earlier Smarkets market you refer to wasn't the one he said he was betting on.

    4!

    A poor choice. It's a surprisingly unimportant number.
    The smallest even non-prime?
    That's a really odd stat.
    Quite the opposite…

    Clearly you don't even appreciate the subtlety of my puns :smile:

    I'm just worried we'll get one of his west indian dot dot, boundary, dot, performances which stalls out the innings. Hopefully not.

    Oh it has hundreds of claims to fame. The most interesting being about polynomial solutions (why?). However it feels to me that there should be more.

    The smallest non-prime btw.
    I was unsure of the status of one: I know it is not a prime number, but does that make it a non-prime?

    4! is the number of hours in a day
    Ok - I know little of 24. I tend to sleep through much of such a number.

    I know nothing of it as a number. Not even the slightest of interesting mathematical facts. I know very little about any of this by the way.

    I have just watched the advert and my conclusion is many will respond

    He has resigned as an MP Angela

    Has Claudia Webb, and how about the £249 you falsely claimed for Air pods Angela

    Gosh, you are so very protective of your "Boris". Who would you support if he was playing Arsenal?
