Mercenary cricket competition with plastic teams and plastic format. You'd love it. It is basically cricket redesigned for Soul Monster.

What the hell was that thing I was watching last night, The Draft. It looked like a fucking game show with ex players choosing players or some bollocks. So it's 100 balls an innings? They just might as well just toss a coin and choose the winner that way.

As far as I am concerned, it is word against word, or more precisely, some dude on twitter who counted the attendees from news footage and someone using “flow and fill rates and crowd density monitoring”. I know who I will trust, but it is not important to me. I couldn't care less if it was 50,000 or 5,000,000. It all reminds me of the Trump inaugural attendee discussion. I guess you are afraid to admit there is a growing number of people who want a second referendum.

As for lies. Ehem, remember that list I posted about the leave campaign's lies before the 2016 referendum? :lol: Let's be serious and admit that among humans there will always be liars, and it is likely you will find such people on both sides of the fence here? No wait, you are the one who couldn't even find something positive to say about the Eu when challenged, so it is probably futile to speak level with you.

Plot thickens,

He's been a guest on a talkshow over here several times already in the last couple of months... I'm surprised he has the time to come over each time...

...although I think it's because he has a crush on the talkshow host...

Only ten days until he fucks off, thankfully.

What will your lot do then? :lol:

As much as I'm starting to get frustrated with this whole process dragging out I can't think what's wrong with what he did today. :shrugs:

Technically it was correct according to convention. No problem with that. He does. however, happily tear up convention when it favours the remain side to do so.

The Speaker is supposed to act with impartiality and he clearly doesn't.

Can't really disagree about the impartiality but this instance was completely proper. The thing I can't fathom is why they didn't proceed with the vote on Saturday. All Letwin did was withhold consent until the legislation was passed which isn't that big of a deal when all's said and done.

(Parliamentary) Brexit is like some strange battle which goes back and forth: at one stage it appears Eurosceptics have landed the definitive blow but this is soon cancelled out through a Remainer counterattack. And on and on it goes...

The Fixed-Terms Act has created a sort of Parliamentary dictatorship, opposing both the executive and the mandate of the people. The referendum has actually opened up important questions about the British constitution, one being: where does sovereignty lie, Parliament (the elected servants of the people) or the people themselves (as derived from referenda)? Probably why nobody sought to run a referendum before 1975, and why they have been rare events ever since. 

And you want more of the buggers?

At this point I'm not sure I do. I'd be happy enough if the current deal passes and we can just get on with our lives. :wacko:

This will never end. If we withdraw everything that negatively happens in this country, a fly farting, will be blamed by your lot on Brexit (the Scots are already experts at this pertaining to Westminster), and if we Revoke Article 50 no bugger will ever vote again in this country as our democracy will be utterly shattered.

So if all the bad stuff predicted as a result of Brexit comes true the remain side can't have a bit of a whinge about it?

Quinoa shortage at Waitrose and I'm sure Brexit will get the blame.

This is what our Parliamentarians are doing today,

EHdzt0PXkAEQLcm?format=jpg&name=large

''Oral Questions''. 

 

PS

 

Poor Canada. Voted Trudeau again, albeit as a ''minority'' (see what I did there?). At least his wife is a bit of a looker. 

Does he count as Canada's ''first black prime minister''?

Prime Minstrel Trudeau it is! I bet the racists who hate him are besides themselves with bewilderment :lol:. His daddy had a second term as a minority leader before regaining a majority. 

Haha, Singh will be our first brown prime minister, hopefully in about 2 years.

Conservatives had an alright showing, but so much of it is stemming from Western resentments and oil. Their base spent the last week defacing murals of Greta... you know, like adult stuff :lol:. Who will be their base after oil is phased out? The new right wing populist party received zero seats. We are kicking ass over here :headbang:

How is it not hilarious? Maybe you are used to it by now, but to me this looks more like a scene from a comedy show than anything else.

(evidently he named his cat ''order'' as well)
