Well there was what, 15 parties? Lockdown months were March, April, May, June 2020, December 2020, January 2021, February 2021?

Missing a few months but it sounds like there was a party every two weeks from here.

Liz Truss perhaps? I don't know much about her, but as I understand it, she's pretty anti-immigration. I know the refugee assistance group I work with is not happy with her.

They definitely tried to make her, and Sunak, a thing. I'm not sure how many in the party are biting, but attempts were made.

The ever shrinking circle of pure brexiteers getting kicked out by the ever changing requirements of what a True Brexit means.

It's almost like ridiculously amorphous purity tests in politics are a bad thing!

Not joking btw, I fully expect that "Boris is a secret Remainer who ruined Brexit, we now need [Tory idiot of the moment] to step in and deliver REAL BREXIT."

I just don't know who the idiot of the moment will be.

Soon Brexit will be terrible and it will all be Boris Johnson's fault.

Calling it now.

I dont like the Telegraph but what are the toughts on any substance on this?
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/01/11/scientists-believed-covid-leaked-wuhan-lab-feared-debate-could/

Playing it out in my head:
They suspected this was a lab-leak from China
Knew that China would never accept responsibility, or any kind of investigation
They could even react to an accusation of such with hostility and the last thing we want is a pandemic and a war at the same time

I put very little stock in it for several reasons:

1. The Telegraph. While historically their links with MI6 and the MoD are good, that doesn't mean much when the MoD and MI6 are crazy.
2. There has been a big push to try and blame this on China by elements in the US and UK with very little evidence. While China's actions in pressuring the WHO to look less seriously are suspect, given the largely unfounded push to try and blame them, it's a lot more understandable.
3. It seems an unncessary complication over the key facts of how we understand viruses generally break out. It's also definitely possible that there were some elements of mishandling at a lab, but at the same time if China was doing anything with a virus, they'd make something far deadlier and far less likely to blowback on them with this. In other words, it would be an accident at worst, not an act of war.
4. Chinese military doctrine does favour unconventional approaches, but it also doesn't generally favour WMDs. For example, look at China's nuclear missile stockpile in comparison with Russia and the US. Their policy is minimal credible deterrence combined with overwhelming conventional forces deployed in novel arrangements.

So I did finally get around to some hardcore Wrath of the Righteous gaming over Christmas, and I am here to report that the Siege of Drezen music is fucking awesome.

It happens. My sister somehow got it from her flatmate who isn't sure how she got it in the first place, and they both work from home as well.

Who'd have thought a pandemic with no precautionary measures taken might mean people being off sick?

It is fairly enjoyable. After a couple of episodes it does feel rather like they got the band back together, on the overall writing front. No idea if that's true, but it comes across as the case. And Michael C Hall is on point as always.

I've still not seen it yet, though I saw your comments on FB. I'll give it a watch tomorrow - worst comes to worst I can slip into a food coma to escape it.

Soloing time

Fungal Grotto I
Banished Cells I
Spindleclutch I
Darkshade Caverns I
Wayrest Sewers I
Elden Hollow I
Crypt of Hearts I
Elden Hollow II
Tempest Island
Blessed Crucible

So the build here is an Imperial stamina templar. Imperials get no significantly crazy bonuses, but they do get extra health, extra stamina and cost reduction for all abilities.

This stacks very well with the Templar, who also gets cost reduction for all abilities, in addition from good sustain from the rune (that returns stamina). This allows me to use the New Moon's Acolyte set, that gives a significant 400+ weapon damage bonus, but increases the cost of all abilities by 5%. I can then stack damage bonuses Briarheart and from Fighters Guild passives on top of that to build a fairly hard-hitting class. The Templar's healing ability also purges negative effects in addition to scaling healing according to your max damage stat, whether it's physical or magical, making it very well suited to defense. Finally the Templar spears are unique in that they're the only area of effect class spammable ability in the game, allowing the Templar to do to groups of enemies what most stamina classes can only do to a single one at a time.
