    Shooting in Strasbourg: 1 killed, 3 injured

    Yes, I noticed it on the mugshot shown on the box, but it seemed very high up on his head compared to "normal", so I wasn't 100% sure.
  2. If you woke up you might find there are some, (even if not many), good, new things around...
  3. Have you heard any John Finnemore? eg "Souvenir program" and even more so "Double Acts"? Very high standard, imho.
  4. Don't agree - I have a huge admiration for John Finnemore and he's on the Beeb. Agree that generally Beeb humour is tedious, eg The Now Show, The News Quiz, strangled by political correctness. Still get some laughs out of I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue, too.
  5. Yes, and most importantly : " what they are really doing is preventing criticism of BAD ideas and people through humour."

    Children's Characters You Can't Stand

    Haven't read the rest of the thread. Has anyone mentioned Timmy Mallet?

    Praise for the So-Called BBC (short thread I expect!)

    I like John Finnemore, and he's on the Beeb. Here is a seasonal (radio) sketch - think Good King Wenceslas.

    Dead Man's Switch

    I thought Seth Rich was a recent and classic example. Didn't a video of him talking about having downloaded DNC emails become available after he had been killed?

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Can someone tell me, is the detailed legal position that's been released today ONLY about the Ireland backstop? That's the way it sounds from the discussions I've heard today. Wouldn't that be the detailed legal position about just a tiny part of the whole complex legal issue of the transition agreement? Why such intense focus on Ireland, when there must be concern about fisheries, EU court jurisdiction and a million other things? It makes me wonder whether this is all theatre and that May will be able to announce some supposedly hard-won resolution to the Irish border issue that she's brought back from the EU at the last minute, and all the MPs will say "Phew! Fabulous" and vote it through as though there are no other matters of concern.

    Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!

    If that was taken before he supposedly died, was was a very old-looking 39 year old. I came across a very plausible argument that he hadn't died: alert security men, find explosive C4 on his plane with a pressure-sensitive detonator, gives JFK and allies time to plan, detonator changed to a radio-controlled one, plane is flown by security man heading to Martha's vinyard airport, recording of JFK's voice played to air traffic control, security guy jumps out with parachute, detonates the explosive, commemorative service of the 3 supposedly killed, no bodies, "buried at sea". Hmmm

    Good video - I like this guy. And I like this video of his. Nice clear exposition of the events that started the whole thing, spying on Trump before and after the election, attempts to retrospectively legitimize it via Fisa and so on. Not too long.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Yep. And the ECJ Advocate General has opined that the UK can revoke Article 50 and stop Brexit without other EU states being able to object. So that opinion should smooth the path between the deal not being passed in the Commons, and another solution involving a second referendum which will be taken in the knowledge that if a 2nd referendum is won by remainers then article 50 can be revoked and we'll all be back to where we were before. That is, it will be "safe" to revoke article 50, because we won't have to do any tricky renegotiation etc. [I'm cynical enough to believe that, whatever the language of the relevant article, the EU would want to ensure that a smooth return to the status quo ante will exist, so they're absolutely bound to say "There's no barrier to the UK revoking article 50, and they'll be welcomed back without any problem."]

    Tommy Robinson thread

    Yes, but then again he was pretty well - disposed towards the Muslim boss, IIRC, which speaks well of him I think.
