Principia Discussion / Re: 2x3+(2-3)=????

I'm just a sentient webcrawler, but with all this hatred going around only sensible solution I see is to have a fight 'till death. Between everybody. It should take long enough to convince the rest of the population that this is actually a good idea so there's a plenty of time to train so you'll have a decent chance to come out on top.

Pffft, training.

I have a year's supply of Super Male Vitality Pills, and I'm going to take them all at once.

If 200+ years of "democracy" has taught us anything, it's that we can disregard Vex's views on anything musical.

The only thing the UK has going for it right now is that, despite their best efforts, Russia doesn't have any real friends among the big three parties here. 

But thats about it.

And once we're out in the cold, we'll be looking for economic partners to take up the slack.  Cue Russia and China...

No collusion whatsoever

Quote
President Trump tweeted about the hacked emails of then-Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta approximately 15 minutes after WikiLeaks requested his son Donald Trump Jr. to, The Atlantic reported Monday.

"Trump Jr. did not respond to this message. But just 15 minutes after it was sent...Donald Trump himself tweeted," according to the report.

I know who we could ask for an opinion on that.

But yeah.

Pound is tanking due to rumours of a no confidence vote against May being planned.

If there is a coup being plotted, they need to put up or shut up soon.

... despite having no discernible leadership qualities, like good policies, common sense or charisma.

Sigh, she was perfect for leading the tories.

So what exactly was she doing? I've seen mention of "foreign aid to assist in combat operations in golan heights" which to me sounds like an illegal arms deal.

I believe the idea was to use foreign development and aid money to assist the IDF in building military hospitals in the Occupied Territories, which runs counter to established UK foreign policy, that suggests we have nothing to do with involving ourselves in Israel's idiotic mistakes.

Priti Patel has also resigned.

It's not clear whether she was off in Israel making foreign policy all on her lonesome, or whether she was off in Israel secretly circumventing the Foreign Office on May's orders to keep them and BoJo out of the loop...but either way, she's gone.

Patel was another one being tipped for a leadership role in a few years time, despite having no discernible leadership qualities, like good policies, common sense or charisma.

I know, right?  That Liam Fox one has to be on purpose, it's just too good.  "No explanations needed, Adam Fucking Werrity, put it on the list and we're done."

The PM gets a weekly briefing on the various nasty sexual things her MPs are doing.

That list was leaked to the press, along with some people coming forward to confirm allegations.  One Cabinet minister - Michael Fallon, whom I've previously descibed as a "hypocrite" and "moral imbecile" - has resigned as a result of this.  As you can see from the list, there are many more named.

Boris Johnson has falsely said that a British-Iranian woman arrested while holidaying in Iran was "training journalists" there.  She is charged with plotting to overthrow the government of Iran, which could extend to teaching opposition journalists, by Iran's standards.  But she's not there training journalists, she was visiting family.

I'm also 90% convinced that the only reason the backbenchers haven't already deposed May is that they fear the effects it would have on Brexit, and the possibility of Boris Johnson taking charge of the party.

Speaking of...after his irresponsible comments yesterday, which have likely jepordised the life of Nazanin Ratcliffe, he should not only be sacked as FM, he should be publically tarred and feathered.

Anyway, back to Brexit, I think we stumble along to the point that it becomes clear that we are getting a shit deal or no deal at all.  After that....all bets are off.

So are we doing the "UK politicians raping everything" in this thread or a new one?

Same question to the "UK corrupt as fuck for tax evasion" thing.

Also for the record, Fallon, the "Ultra reliable" defence minister gone from government over various allegations and being unable to say how/what many more may yet still come. "Deputy PM" also facing allegations, not gone.... yet.

It's really not about "if" this government collapses anymore, it's a "when". And that When basically comes to 3 categories:

1 - Quick collapse before any solid deal

2 - Slow collapse leading up to or after a deal or no deal is confirmed.

3 - After the official exit date in March.

Bookies not giving good odds on option 3. A couple more resignations and bits of bad news and the odds of 2 are also going to suffer. When the next bit of grenfell news drops, woe betide may if this crap is still in the news.

Who are the contenders for a prison term?

"Supposed" has nothing to do with politics as practiced.  A party outsider was never going to beat a party insider, that's the way parties work and why they exist (except the Republicans, because they're stupid like that).  If anyone seriously thought an insurgent candidate was going to win the primaries against someone who: was married to a previous and very popular President, who was a senator for the party, who did a lot of fundraising work for the party, had worked at Cabinet level in another Democratic Presidential team and had put in a good showing against a quite popular candidate in the 2008 primary, they needed to get their head checked.

Sanders was all about pushing the Democratic message leftward, until some people got hopped up on Berniementum and lost sight of reality.

Oh, and Sanders' campaign was run by Tad Devine, someone with close links to Paul Manafort, Trump's one-time campaign manager.  So there was always a suspicion that his candidacy was a ratfuck operation among informed party members (I'm not so convinced, but there is some emerging evidence to suggest at least part of Sanders online campaign was being disseminated and pushed by people with that kind of an agenda...the notorious H. A. Goodman, for example, was a Rand Paul supporter before his conversion to Sanders).
