I can't decide if that's worse in text or read aloud.

In an talk/interview yesterday, Stephen Harper lauded Boris's plan - and prorogation.

Ahahaha fucking OF COURSE.

Eat all the dicks you jackass, Steve!

Apparently Barney Rubble has threaded the needle on not having a hard border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK, and not having a hard border between Northern Ireland and Eire by... uh... doing both.

DUP's already told him to get fucked, so watching Parliament's response should be, um, interesting.

Did every moment in history feel like the dumbest possible timeline or is this new.

I'm sure it crops up from time to time, but we are definitely in one of those times.

It's probably just more noticeable nowadays. Like, when your King was doing stupid nonsense in 1056, you didn't have a live feed to it.

Like the Swallows to Capistrano, each year the PM returns to Brussels to ask. This amazing homing behavior is a testament to the power of nature.

All seats in the 650-seat House of Commons are up for grabs in the Dec. 12 election. Johnson’s Conservatives have an early lead in most opinion polls, but analysts say the election is unpredictable because Brexit cuts across traditional party loyalties.


What on God's green earth is the matter with the English.

We've had Murdoch herding us into his pre-Facebook reality tunnel for most of the 500 years he's been animate.

even non-Murdoch rags are incapable of writing Jeremy Corbyn's name without prefacing it with "the unpopular"

Well, the Tories opened the first day of the election by releasing a shamelessly, blatantly doctored video to try and make one of the Labour shadow ministers look bad. Some con half-assedly apologized while others tried to defend it (lol).

The real underlying story here is that since it was an interview with an ITV journalist that had been hacked up - one who's normally Tory-friendly, too - the journo in question is... peeved. I'd bet that at least a few of said journo's peers are now feeling a similar animus to the tories.

One can hope that Team Rubble so endearing themselves to one of Britain's major broadcasters on day one of the election will prove to be a wise and farsighted strategy.

Apparently, that story's "only the third most morally objectionable foot-shooting catastrophe of the half dozen to befall the Conservative campaign in its first day.", including "Hey let's remind everyone about Grenfell in the most blatant way possible".

Can't imagine whose playbook "make an enemy of the mainstream media" is copied from.

Classic First-Past-the-Post angling going on, with Labour and Lib Dem trying to convince voters to vote strategically for candidates most likely to beat Tories.

The Lib Dems are going a little far - and then some - with this. For example:



Read the fine print.

Jesus. If those fucking clown carnies put Boris in permanent power with their bullshit they're going straight to the top of my suicide-by-cop leaderboard.
