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).

Well, these soft southerners can't handle straight talk, you have to couch everything in passive-aggressive terms before you knife them with it.

I will probably agree to it, though my co-worker will not due to other obligations she has (extra fun), but I will drive in the knife a little bit further by mentioning I recently filled in a form where I explained I was having sleeping problems, and a regular schedule is essential to a good sleep pattern.  This is not conducive to a good sleep pattern.  Or common sense.

I also like how this manages to skirt directly within the letter of the law while pissing on the spirit of it.  I did let it slip I have a friendly law firm I'm working with now, so that may have been a motivating factor.

An update from the world of work.  Once again, I have been asked to work a full overnight shift, then come in to do all day training.  Once again, I have said "lolno" (other staff were stupid enough to agree, that's their problem. I know my rights.  And beyond that, I have enough self-respect that I'm not going to put myself through insomnia hell for a pointless training session).

So, today, my manager came back to me, with this proposal.   I am to come in the night before at 1845. I am to finish at 2200. I then attend the training the next day from 0900 to 1700. Then I return that night to work at 0200 until 0715.

If you're thinking that's bugfuck crazy, you're not the only one.

An election campaign adviser to Donald Trump has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the timing of meetings with alleged go-betweens for Russia.
George Papadopoulos admitted the talks happened while he worked for Mr Trump, not before, court papers show.
He said he had been told the Russians possessed "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.
Separately, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering unrelated to the 2016 election.

Is any commentary needed at this point?

Papadopoulos was interesting though, right?  Also showing once again that UK connections to Russian politicians seem pivotal in the Trump campaign (the meeting with the Russian lawyer at the Trump Towers was arranged via a British intermediary also).

It's almost as good as the ones who treat (rhetorical) attacks on explicit Nazis as attacks on conservatives.  Are you really in that much of a rush to throw in with Nazis?

I'm seeing that a lot on Reddit, after the most recent crackdown.

I've decided Middle Earth: Shadow of War is the best game ever, after seeing a stream where one of the orcs is called "Dush", prounounced, well, "douche".

Celebrimbor is all "I'm coming for you, douche."  When you attack his followers to draw him out, they're all there chanting "douche, douche, douche".  And then you can shame him by going "you are unworthy, douche".

10/10.

(but seriously, if you liked the previous game, this looks pretty good.  Whining about lootboxes seems completely unjustified thus far).
