    It's funny I had a weird premonition of something like that being brought up.

    I'm wary of taking the bait and going over old ground in the context of 2019. I'm pretty sure I said some things which are tonally off, but my recollection is one or two people were being ahistorical, unrealistic and dare-I-say a little prissy regarding the reality of most romantic couplings. I, probably naively, tried to offer an alternative point of view, and I suspect I would stand by the general thrust of what I said. But we're not that bored right? Right?

    Tbh I realise that I am intellectually lazy and greatly admire the chops of some of the peeps on this board. I think I occasionally have something to add, but essentially I'm happy to be a member of the audience

    Yes.

    Scott Adams has an interesting term he uses to describe the normies: 'word-thinker'

    How did Scott Adams go from Dilbert to whatever he is now?

    This is like Craner's poem all over again.

    Well Adams has long had a sideline in 'just asking questions' on his blog about various right-wing talking points. It was when he started praising Trump's persuasion skills and stated he thought he'd win the election (though he didn't say that he supported Trump, at least not at this stage) that he started losing friends and well-paid speaking gigs, at which point he doubled-down and courted a new audience among the Trump supporters and IDW-types.

    Scott Adams also used 'persuasion' to get his current ex-model girlfriend.

    Lol yeah, that was pretty funny. Like unlocking a secret level that most people don't know about.

    Very apposite choice of words - it does sound like something Padraig would have said.

    yeh, but the libdems and greens are worse than corbyn. we don't have a good political icon in the UK even by the standards of parliamentary politics. open secret in British politics is not that since the 70s labour has been losing votes, but both parties. and the tories haven't had a governing majority since 92.

    corbyn is useless but he's a useful idiot for both the right and left bureaucratic wings of the labour party, if you know what I mean. politics these days is a kind of non-familial nepotism.

    I'm no Corbyn fan, but I think he's right to be cautious re: Brexit. Right now, we are in an unprecedented situation and simply rushing to a 2nd Referendum position before proper detailed data modelling/analysis has been attempted is not sensible.

    Bear also this in mind. In a minority government situation, he might actually need to rely on some Brexit Party MPs - most of them will lean right economically I imagine, but who knows really?

    The point is that normal political calculus is out of the window right now. Kneejerk reactions probably aren't the way to go.
