    what? you were the one making the nazi comparison, as if brexit in all its horridness is remotely even comparable.

    nazi resisters would be massacred like partridges and often were, brexit resisters haven't even started resisting and even if they did at best there would be a moral panic. degree of scale. don't accuse me of annoying you when you come out with the most infantile comparison.

    the fact is, remaniacs are enjoying brexit, not in the sense of haha we told you, but in the sense that they know they are losing their politically insulated status and have the tools of cultural production to say, you're not getting rid of us that easily! except they are dissolving easily. just like the brexiteer maniacs deep down realising that a random incoherent ideological hodgepodge is not going to give them the experience of running a country, both parties to this fight are self-interested politicos more concerned with bums and seats than the fait of me or you.

    the most politically astute response is just to remain placidly indifferent if you're not going to do anything about it. But you can't accept this, instead seeing corbyn as a fifth columnist incarnate whereas your dislike for bo jo is, at best, an eccentric racist slightly pervy old english grandad who should be retired to a home for the elderly as he's too wobbly. again, difference of scale.

    I'm taking a break from this forum as it's clear that my conduct notwithstanding people are willing to pummel me into feeling guilty even though some mans have been far more irreverent. whatever, white tears are a thing. not salty enough as the anatolian waters though, it must be said...

    This is my position at the minute. I do find it interesting watching Cummings try and apply Silicon Valley disruption techniques via the medium of Downing Street. Surely a vein in his head will blow soon?

    I remain deeply suspicious of Corbyn due to the foreign policy positions of those around him. Boris is more fundamentally evil though.

    What kind of sophistry is this?

    Keen says, even if prorogation unlawful, supreme court should not decide what happens next
    Keen is now addressing the issue of “remedy” (ie, what might happen if the court rules against the government).
    He says he contends that a determination from the court that prorogation was unlawful would suffice.
    He says it should then be up to the government and parliament to decide how to respond; ie, it would not be for the court to decide what should happen next.
    A judge asks how parliament can respond if it is not sitting.
    Keen says in the first instance it would be for the government to respond.
    So even if they lose they are gonna try and wriggle out of allowing parliament to sit. Have you ever seen such a slippery bunch of spivs as these scumbags?

    It must be exhausting to be an Express reader. Apparently naming a room after Bercow is a "Remainer plot".

    hard to believe there's any chance of dialing back the outrage meter at this point (there or here). sadly, we might as well get used to it. there will always be small enclaves of legitimate discussion and debate, where facts take precedent over tribalism, but so much mass media is fucked beyond repair. reasoned, fact-based debate doesn't work as click bait, doubtful Fox News or the express will ever convert to a profitable "moderate/centrist" business model.

    also, get off twitter.

    Possibly even more notable is that European nations are stacked at the bottom. This continent knows its time at the top table is up. Apart from Italy, where radical political change is just...expected?

    Apparently 70% of people think the Brexit Party has a clear Brexit policy. Wtf is wrong with this country? Instantly renders any opinion poll of dubious value.

    You probably have to take into account China's grip on information and whether their citizens feel they can answer truthfully when looking at that 94% approval rating too.

    Quite dramatic all this stuff. My sister was explaining the case over the weekend and why they'd win. Her friend made them change tack so they wouldn't be basing it on whether Johnson was a liar basically, an issue the judges would be extremely chary of apparently. She was very confident of the result. Politics has never been this action packed before. Maybe they'll be assassinations or civil war!

    Nearest was when Churchill took over from Chamberlain instead of Halifax, but this time Churchill's been found to be up to the hairy hilt in scandal and corruption just as Dunkirk is kicking off.
