If the no confidence vote passes, a GE would be called right? Surely in that case they would vote to rescind article 50? Walking into a no deal, with no preparation and no government, it's like this mess wasn't dangerous enough so they poured gasoline on it.

Red hats and blue passports.

But yes in all his slug like vileness, the cheeto has never dangled the economy over Tartarus to make a point.

Withdrawing the vote was an interesting move, the current options are no deal or no brexit, the longer she holds out without letting them vote, it will kill the few who are still saying "negotiate something better". The clock ticks down but it does increase the chances of her deal going through. If I was her I would say, we can have a vote on it the week before A50 comes into effect and start triggering a no deal prep measure each week until enough ministers are convinced.
Apologies for my pavlovs dog reaction earlier, when comments like patels come out it has me drunkenly singing rebel songs from the roof until the guards come.

I wasn’t entirely sure if I was misremembering the potato famine being essentially genocide... guess I wasn’t.
Its a common belief that the one million people who died was entirely due to the potato blight, during the same period farmers were forced at gunpoint to export their crops. It's hard to say how many lives could have been saved if they had been able to use the food themselves, but they are deaths that could have been avoided.
Genocide is too strong a word for it, but there is a responsibility on the UK for many of those deaths.

It's not even a thing people talk about other than die hard shinner nationalists, but its those kind of feelings Patel's tone deaf comments illicit.

It's either ignorance of her history and the role Britain played in the Irish famine, or a deliberate sneering comment about what was effectively a genocide.

She is correct that if the UK has food shortages we will too (banana's oranges, and imported foods) come on frieight from the UK.
But what makes her comment even funnier are two things:
1) The UK imports 50% of it's food, guess where most of that comes from.
2) https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2017-food-security/

The second is, fuck her, she is putting me in a position where I am given to my baser instinct of reveling at the thought of food shortages in the UK out of spite, which is unfair to the millions of people are aren't fucking monsters like her.

The three amendments last night (provided the EU says the UK can withdraw article 50 unilaterally) could allow ministers to cancel brexit if they thought there was no other outcome then "No Deal"
Then the UK could stay, and blame the EU forever (which they were probably going to do anyway).

TM finally lost that last fingernail grip on reality and is going to declare herself Lord protector and take on dictatorial powers?

Ireland hasn't contributed much to music this decade, but this gives an insight into the uh... rich... cultural... heritage

It's not clear if the new incoming legislature would have the votes needed to overturn the rule change.
So basically they lose the seat so they gimp the position until they win it back and then restore the power? I've never seen this kind of thing done so openly, are they desperate or do they just not care. Has trump normalised this kind of behavior?

The Orange One said this:

“One of the problems that a lot of people like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence, but we’re not necessarily such believers.”

I mean... that's straight newsfeed material, if I'm being honest.
The opposite of a problem.
I don't even see what he is getting at here, "it would all be better if we just pretended it was"

One of the weird things about the simulation hypothesis is that if it's true, then our lives have objective meaning

Also, a simulated universe is definitely the product of intelligent design.

On topic:

"Admit it, you've always laughed at these bastards."
I like this.

Makes me think of this corruption of Voltaire:

I have never made but one prayer to Eris, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it.
In retrospect this was not the wisest request I have made.
