Totally disagree. All Russian athletes in every sport should be banned from competing indefinitely.
Sorry Andy, but disagree with you there.
Well Andy, better than the country they represent getting a flag-waving ceremony.
It’s a difficult one. Russian players aren’t responsible for their government’s actions, but we don’t want to legitimise the Russians.
Ok. And who cares what he thinks about international relations?
Well said. Are Brits gonna be held responsible for Boris being a bam?
The Russian people didn't do this, the goverment did. Creating an environment of hate towards Russian people for nothing.
Well, it's not the players’ fault is it?
Wrong answer, not for the first time.
Players shouldn’t be banned, it’s not their fault Putin is a nutjob.
Strip club ban
A councillor who voted to ban strip clubs in the Capital and who used to work as a police inspector has defended the decision and said the council should not be responsible for helping dancers who are forced out of jobs.

No one has ever managed to ban anything where there is a demand for that service. All they do is make it less visible and riskier for the participants, while congratulating themselves for their supposedly “moral” stance.
Councillors should leave these businesses alone. As a woman I see no exploitation or violence and recent articles by women currently working in these venues suggest the complete opposite.
Stripping strippers of their rights to earn an honest wage… has the council got nothing better to do?
If he bans strip clubs, he takes away the safe space for people to work in.
What about male strippers? Don't agree with the council closing "Strip joints". Burlesque is an art form of sorts and the performers have years of training. How dare they insinuate that pole dancers are prostitutes! Hope you vote in a more sensible and caring council.
Tories think forcing people out of jobs and then having no support for them afterwards is fine. Who is surprised by this?
All that will happen now is strippers will go to the client. Less regulated, more dangerous. Be it right or wrong there is a demand and licensed venues is a lot safer! This council needs to move on!
Peter Tostgi Chamberlain
Can we ban councillors? No one would disagree they’re not worth what they cost us, and then let them fend for themselves.
A man criminalising work that women do. Quelle suprise!
All that is going to happen here is it’s going to be driven underground, it isn’t going to stop.
He also shouldn't be responsible for voting people out of a job. Though we can do the same to him this week and vote him out of a job.
How many of these four strip clubs are owned by women?
Women who experienced abortions in Scotland have told how "inescapable" and "damaging" anti-abortion protests are
I loathe anti-abortionists and really feel the law should be changed to penalise them harassing people.
Patients have been suffering this harrassment for years.Move the protesters away from the patients.Do it now.
No one should be hounded like this, especially while accessing healthcare. I support the right to protest, but to do so at the entrances of hospitals/health care facilities is harassment.
"Not your body not your choice" Remember that.
