slow_lift_joe said:Please tell you are not serious :- "Are you sure vote."

Why not best out "three votes" or "Are really, really certain about this before you completely screw the country up vote"

How about " Are sure about Corbyn & Abbot vote"

Are sure about " Boris & Mogg vote"

Where does this end.



You missed the reasoning, Joe.




How about,

Me and Pete want YOUR vote. I promise you a billion quid if you vote for me, so you do. I win but don't give you anything, instead I rob your house and shut down the company you work for. Would you want a second vote now that you know I was a f**king lying Tory c**t? Or would you accept you got your balls bluffed off and carry on into the abyss?

My guess is you would want to vote again, as many many leave voters do now they realise they were super bulls**tted to by people they should be able to trust.

I don't think it is that at all. Back in '16 we were just voting leave and there was no flesh on the bones of the leave skeleton at all.
Three years on there is, not as much flesh as we were led to believe and not so healthy flesh as we were promised.
So now that we all know exactly what leave means it seems perfectly reasonable to ask the question again. I am nothing if not reasonable. But the original leave voters seem outraged at being asked, what amounts to "are you sure?"


This. Absolutely this.

The successful leave vote was built on propaganda. Even with the level of propaganda (for propaganda, read lies) that there was, the result was 50/50, give or take.

Nearly half of the country thought the idea of leaving was bo***cks despite the outrageous lies being peddled. Now the country knows the reality of the situation, I would expect the remain vote to be the majority.

Either way, for a decision of this size and now knowing what we know, the least that should happen is that we have an 'Are you sure' vote.
The result should need to be a vast majority win also to make such a monumental decision . Say, 80/20. A few percentage points either way means the action to follow alienates half of a country.

Any decision that alienates half of the audianece is a bad decision.


Ps, Tory's are c**ts.

I really rate the slingshot. It's done wonders for my bench. I'm not the best bencher by any means but I would be a lot worse without using the slingshot.

I'll smash those in my first comp. Will be a nice little bonus to PB one month after I turn 40.

garrold said:Good luck. Some good lifters at M1, especially at 90kg. Lots of respect for anyone doing proper drug free lifting.



Some cracking lifters across every fed. Britain produces some mega beasts at times.

Cheers mate.

Hi John, sorry to take so long to answer. I started doing bench in my late 20s, primarily because with my injury I could do little else. Over the years I worked up to a 140 bench in the week of my 40th birthday, but it was always as a gym rat who had no idea about strength training. Shortly after that I stopped lifting. I started up my own gym and it was too much of a busman's holiday. By 2002 I was totally out of shape and decided to start again, got myself a coach, and worked back to 140 over the next year. By 2008 I was doing 165 raw and 200 equipped in competition. As recently as 2013 I was doing 170 raw in the gym, and in 2014 I opened 190 and just missed 203 at the Scottish. It's been a downward spiral since then, because the trapped nerve hit shortly afterwards. Believe it or not it's a golf injury!
I was 52 wen I got my comp pbs, and 58 when I got my gym pb, so I reckon there's plenty of scope for improvement for yourself. The trick is not to seek constant improvement, just put in the work with no great expectations and every so often your experience a wee jump in performance. The trick is putting in the work year in, year out. If you can hit a peak and then improve by 5 kilos a year on bench, that's 25 kilos over the next five years, which would be a good number. It's all about how much you want it...


Thanks for this Martin.
The trick you mention is exactly where I fail every time.

I'm starting again today.

Well done on the comp. You've inspired me to enter the BDFPA UK Masters this year. My first M1 comp.
