Aneristic Illusions / Re: UK General Election 8th June: Shake it all about?

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.

but her emails the Will of the People. Apparently we voted to commit national suicide and Parliament is legally obliged to be the executors of our Will. They seem to have forgotten that traditionally you have to declare yourself to be of "sound mind" in order for a Will to be valid. The lunatics have truly taken over the asylum

This is fucking amazing.  You guys have actually managed to show the MAGA crowd how self-destruction is done downtown.

Yeah, "Make Albion Great Again", you can buy red hats and everything

BUMP because I'm throwing a Moosemas party tomorrow. I had to check this thread to see what year I started doing it.. so this will be my 11th year! Which means it's my 13th moosemas party, because I think I've thrown two "Moosemas in July" parties.




Moosemas 2010, for reference

Wow, Flake admits to "a reasonable doubt" AFTER he votes party line. Is he thinking of a run in 2020?

Well that was worth the time it took to read. And I know you should never read the comments [well not if you have a nervous disposition] but that, too, was well worth it for this little gem

The depth of US politics never fails to amaze me:

:lulz:  I bet his wife loved it as much as the Chinese diplomatic corps.

I haven't stopped giggling all morning - not that you could really expect anything better of him

Looks like Jeremy *unt is likely to be as diplomatic as dear departed Boris. Just a few days into his new gig and his Basil Fawlty is showing. ['Don't mention the war.']

Jeremy Hunt, Britain’s new foreign secretary, has made an awkward debut in China when he sought to curry favour with his hosts by mentioning his Chinese wife, but accidentally referred to her as “Japanese”.

Well, that was a shitshow, but it doesn't seem to be a world-ending one.  That we know of....

But watching the US President standing next to the Russian one and trashing his own intelligence services was a novel experience

Quote
President Donald Trump was asked outright if he believed his own intelligence agencies or the Russian president when it came to the allegations of meddling in the elections - and if he would denounce Russia with "the world watching".

Mr Trump dodged the question.

“People came to me, [national intelligence director] Dan Coates came to me and some others, they said they think it’s Russia," Mr Trump said.

"President Putin says it’s not Russia. I don’t see any reason why it should be.”

Maybe I'm just not very smart, but that doesn't read like a "dodge" to me.  "I don't see any reason why it should be" is accepting the word of Putin over the DNI.

I am no longer surprised by anything he does.

Anyway, the Trump-Putin summit ran over time, even taking into account the pathetic "I'll show up late, now I'll show up late" one upmanship Putin and Trump were doing.

No word yet on what was discusssed behind closed doors.

I bet I know why it ran long . . .





'cos Trump couldn't find his arse with an atlas

Boris is no great loss either. I'm told he is the next rat who has left the stinking ship. [sic]

Apple Talk / Re: DSPN Presents: World Cup 2018
« on: June 20, 2018, 12:31:31 pm »
England will probably get through the group stage, which is more than can be said for Australia.  But I am endlessly amused by England fans who insist on the World Cup as their birthright, despite winning it exactly once, 52 years ago.  So watching England, who are IMO are a consistently overrated team, fail at what should be slam dunk games is extremely satisfying for me.

It needn't be this way, either.  Individually, England has some pretty talented players.  But I don't think I've seen a team more averse to the idea of playing as a team than England.  Compare any footage in the last 20 years of England playing, and then throw up some footage of Brazil, Portugal, Serbia or Germany (probably a better comparison for the overall style of play).  In theory, when playing football, you should be playing against 11 other men, but in the case of England, because everyone's out for themselves, they gimp themselves, and so you only ever have to worry about the one with the ball.

And then they wonder why they can't progress past the quarter finals.

Yeah, England have found their level. Making the quarter finals is what they should aim for. I actually remember watching the whole 1966 World Cup on TV. It was in black and white, and very, very small. The first time I ever saw football in colour was that same final when it did the rounds on the newsreels at the local picture house. It was a real shock to see it in Technicolour.
