My copy of Windows broke itself. Directly after doing a reset install, too. I am so sick of Windows and all its bullshit, and I can't afford a copy of Mac, so Linux it is! ADVENTURE!

Our work copy of Windows has been invalid for, like, the past 3 weeks.  I'm eagerly awaiting the moment that MS brick our reception PC for counterfeiting.

If it's win10 I think the cutoff is around 28 days.

I'm surprised they're using legit software. Probably one of the only places in the UK that is.

It's 7 still.  I think we have a licence which means, so long as this computer connects to the main server, it automatically validates it.

Thing is, of course, it's not doing that now.  You would think this might be some cause concern in IT, but they're too busy with a month-long WoW bender or something.  One presumes.

Fancy Bear has already been accused of hacking Macron's email servers.

Meanwhile, lets not forget this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38600560

France's far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has been seen visiting Trump Tower in New York.

She declined to say whether she was there to see President-elect Donald Trump but the Trump team said there would be "no meetings".

Ms Le Pen is currently one of the top candidates for the first round of voting in April, opinion polls suggest.

The National Front leader has called Mr Trump's election "an additional stone in the building of a new world".

My work week is looking like fun.  Working tonight and tomorrow, then I have a night off, then I have to attend mandatory training (on "respecting boundaries", only 4 hours thank god), then two more nights off, then in for 4 nights.

"Tories have power, therefore power is bad.  The only way to remain virtuous is to eschew all attempts at power and sniff your own farts for all eternity." - the Labour Party 2017 manifesto, or it may as well be.

Like, I get the sentiment of not wanting to play gotcha politics etc which Corbyn espouses.  I'm very sympathetic to it.  But you're not going to get that kind of political culture overnight, and you're in a far better place to deliver it with an iron-clad Labour majority in the Commons than you are with your own party mounting abortive coup attempts against you every 6 months and you're stuck fending off the Lib Dems (of all fucking people).

Corbyn ruled it out, like the dingbat he is.

I don't think anyone even wants to form a coalition with the Tories.  The Lib Dems are making this entire campaign about Brexit - if they signed up with the Tories again, the party would collapse from the sheer hypocrisy.  The SNP...would demand IndyRef 2.0, and the Tories wont give it to them.  UKIP is done.  None of the Irish parties want hard Brexit.  The Greens? Hahahahaha.

In that very unlikely event, the Tories would have to rule as a minority government.

Sovereignty over your person

the is the best pro-choice argument i've ever heard. 

kind of like the "stand your ground" laws

Having the right to your own body is just like shooting Trayvon Martin.

You are a fucking genius.  Talking Ben Carson level brains, here.

You can use your uterus to store grain.  It's scientific fact.

I've heard...rumours...that May wants to pass a far more centralizing agenda for Parliament and the Prime Minister.  Exactly what this entails isn't clear, only that once Brexit is done with, there will still be 3 years on Parliament's shelf life, giving them a huge amount of say over the constitutional arrangements going forward.  Maybe...reducing the powers of Scottish Parliament, to offsee IndyRef 2.0?  Depends how stupid Tories drunk on power with no viable opposition intend to be, but overseas precedents are...unsettling.

On the plus side, we will get treated to the spectacle of Theresa May being utterly skewered in the debates.  Corbyn tends not to go for gotcha moments, but Farron and rather formidable Sturgeon will in his absence.  My email from the Lib Dems also suggests they are going scorched earth, to try and make this Brexitref 2.0 - a good tactic for them, but possibly not for the country.

Scandal for the Tories.  Maybe a fine.  But mostly scandal.

Oh ho ho!

Crown Prosecution Service has just confirmed it intends to charge 30 people over the Tory election expenses scandal.  This could get interesting

Politico poll is projecting a slaughter for Labour atm.  70 lost seats, with the Tories picking up 69.  That would give the Tories a majority of 150 seats.

The SNP would fuck the entire country over on the promise on a referendum.
