  1. Particularly as we know that any new referendum will read something like this 'Do you wish to leave the EU under the govs crappy deal (i.e. remaining in the EU under a worse deal than we currently have) or remain in the EU under the current deal? We also know that the establishment will take a remain vote in such a referendum to mean that we have learnt our lesson, will no longer be silly sausages, and that we would all like to fully embrace the European project moving forward. The real harm in removing no deal from the equation is that it has removed any incentive for the state to negotiate anything even resembling a good deal for the UK. A much better referendum would be, accept the govs deal or no deal because that would at least force the gov to negotiate something people might actually want.
  2. The people that write this stuff are not like us. They are the enemy.
  3. Here's an article that the sentiment of which I agree with, but the way it's reported will have most people dismissing it as nonsense: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/education-47853444 Two things, the pictures of the supposedly middle class couples. Secondly, this 'It warns of a destabilising impact if this section of society - defined as earning between 75% and 200% of the average income - continues to feel that prosperity is slipping away. In the UK, almost 60% of people live in households classified as being in this middle-income group.' So 60% of the UK are earning between 75% and 200% of what the fuck?
  4. That's not the same thing though is it? But a great example of how they will publish details if the attacker is of a certain colour.
  5. Yep, been there many a time. Also cereal/muesli, a combination of crunching and slurping as well as spoon on bowl chinking.
  6. Just the one amendment required.
  7. The Guardian with their take. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jan/15/gillette-ad-not-pc-guff-piers-morgan-macho-stereotype-boys
  8. Ideal for giving you access to work email 24/7, 52 weeks a year. Think of all that free labour that companies can exploit!
  9. I liked this one. Look at poor little Timmy's sad little face: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/brexit-deal-end-hot-meals-lunch-school-children-uk-eu-a8638896.html From the article: But a potential 22 per cent rise in tariffs on imported food which may follow a no-deal Brexit, could be “the straw that breaks the camel’s back”, the report suggests a potential ...... may follow ..... could be ....... a report sugests
  10. We are not being allowed to leave. We have lost our liberty. Apparently we lost hundreds of thousands of lives, yet won two world wars to achieve this state. Has any nation fallen from grace so dramatically and quickly as the UK? Even Ireland are dictating terms to us FFS (no disrespect to the Irish).
  11. imho the reasons and madness behind WW1 and WW2 were the same - German expansionism coupled with a US desire to cement itself as the world's dominant power by overseeing the destruction of the 'old world order'. I think the selling of WW2 as a war of idealogy is little more than an attempt by politicians and the establishment to hide the fact that they essentially sent millions to their deaths in two identical conflicts a mere 21 years apart.
  12. This is front page news for the So-Called BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-46109281 No evidence presented for the claim made in the headline, but nonetheless, a great platform to allow the 21 year old Classics student to share these pearls of wisdom: "I think anything Nigel Farage says would make me eye-roll," she explains. "But it was just the fact that he said 'We've got a Remainer's Brexit' when we absolutely haven't. "We've got a Brexit fuelled by the wishes of the Leave campaign and Treason May is not giving us a Remainer's Brexit at all."
  13. Or the impeccably timed roll of the eyes, or raising of an eyebrow.
  14. Those were the days, before all this https://www.teenvogue.com/story/non-binary-models-fashion-industry/amp
