These are the kind of initiatives that make me proud to be a QPR supporter. The Tiger Cubs have been a huge success and I hope this equals it.

Another fantastic QPR community initiative. Well done my club. Perhaps football is finally beginning to change in this respect.

I am looking to the day when we don't need separate LGBT groups because prejudice and social exclusion of LGBT community no longer exists. Until then groups like this will be needed.

Nicely put dm. My thoughts, better words.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

You can't beat the MGs but a bit cold for the soft top now

Completely agree with above comments. As I've said before, off the pitch, we're doing most things right.
Just don't want the club continuing along the FC St. Pauli route of social conscience with no on-field successes.

Lovely motor before the plastic numbers came in. Rust buckets from what I can remember. I should have got one but at 50 it's now very last throw of the dice purchase. Don't think they've gone up much? Mk2 escort prices are nuts

I've had three MGBGTs, all chrome bumper models. Prone to rust and not especially fast, but a pleasure to drive if you've got everything set up correctly. Not sure if I could get in and out of one now though. :(

This has been generating quite a bit of backlash on social media which really perplexes me.

Thick prats bemoaning identity politics?

Doesn't perplex me.

Some people are misdirected in whatever walk of life. Football fans are no different.

The C wasn't well received at the time because the heavier engine changed the feel of the car and made it more like a tourer than a sports car. Nowadays they are much better thought of and command very high prices indeed.
