    crashmonitor reacted to The Generation Game in Is this site a balanced mix of opinions?   
    I see Corbyn as tantamount to using a hammer to crack a nut. 
    My own thoughts on this. 
    1) Welfare needs massive reform (in particular, moving it towards a contribution-based system). Why don't the government want to install this change? Are they fearful of rioting, revolution, being seen to look harsh on poor people (whether unfortunate or just "playing the game")? A lot of things they could change they claim they can't because of the EU. If this is true, then let's remove this particularly piece from the playing field. 
    2) Proper Brexit means the EU excuse is no longer valid. MPs now become responsible for their actions. So why don't the government reform the system now? One or more of the aforementioned reasons? 
    The economy can be slowly brought back into shape by balancing the budget (this does not mean taxing more, but enacting proper austerity to make sure the figures add up). Stop paying so much housing benefit and the utility of property brings its value back down in line with what people earn, leaving sufficient disposable to keep important parts of the economy ticking over. 
    Corbyn will do none of these things and his printing will just exacerbate the issues, making the over-correction much more severe. 
    Pain is coming. There's no doubt about that. The government does have some control over how severe it will be and over what duration. The present system is death by 1000 cuts for most, hence the Gillet Jaune movement.

    I reckon we should submit this for next year
    It’ll either get null points or win by a mile. Probably the former.

    I reckon we need her on QT donning her Izzard disguise in the event of a second referendum. Lest we forgot he/ she gained a few hundred thousand votes for Leave.

    Good job the Victorians built their brick arches to last.

    We couldn't build a cathedral today short of spending half a trillion or so each and then the Carillion workers would not have certain skills. 800 years ago too when we were fairly unadvanced. It costs 100k per flat these days to do a bit of cladding in Kensington.

    Technically the isam ... UK thread.
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6487113/Teenager-16-convicted-rape-murder-Viktorija-Sokolova.html
    A teenager hooked on extreme porn who raped and beat to death a 14-year-old girl was today convicted of her 'degrading and ferocious' murder.
    Viktorija Sokolova's brutalised body was found half naked on a park bench in Wolverhampton on April 12 after she secretly sneaked out of her house to meet the boy.
    The dog walker who found Viktorija's battered and bruised body initially believed she was an abandoned blow-up doll. 
    Her 16-year-old killer, who was known to social services, had raped her then bludgeoned her 21 times with a hammer, shattering her skull, teeth and breaking her spine in two. 
    After she died it was alleged he had sex with her body, but a not guilty verdict was returned by the jury after instructions by the judge. 
    The teenager, who was born in Holland to parents from Iraq and home schooled for the past year, cannot be named because of his age - but journalists have appealed to the judge to scrap the order protecting his identity.
    So ... EEers killed by a 'dutch' kid.
    Both over here for tax credits.
    What a fucking disaster for all involved.

    An adder crossed my path in Devon about 15 years ago moving its fat body in a classic coil. I was surprised how big and colourful it was, quite luminous. This guy is  wrong saying this one is pretty, he's laughing all the way to his grave...

    Yes if they ban the ads and more and more people get fat, perhaps men will forget that thin healthy women actually exist.

    But presumably, at some point before they built it, they didn't have the expertise either. I'm sure with long-term political thinking (stop laughing at the back), we could redevelop the required craftsmanship.

    In line with the referendum vote? (i.e. 240 remainers and 260 that didn't know what they were voting for)

    This week's token comedian was rubbish.
    The audience member scored a pretty good gag at the expense of Jo Brand.
