  1. I would. Much better that UKIP get recast as a pro-Brexit alternative for traditional Labour voters, than a serious alternative for natural small c conservatives.
  2. I used to go there occasionally around then.
  3. How about a bit of London centric hard acid techno? Star Power - Nothing can save us, London. (Truelove remix) A&E Dept - The Rabbit's name was...
  4. But the next election is not that far away and it's up to the leave voters to reconstitute Parliament then. The Conservatives will be aware there's either a landslide or electoral evisceration, depending on how they handle this.
  5. That's like having the second best hand in poker. Frustrating, but best to let it go.
  6. It could be a good thing, putting a motion before Parliament is absolutely the right thing legally. However, it was unambiguously stated in the Tory manifesto that the referendum result would be considered binding, so any Tory rebels on the vote should be immediately deselected, and a snap election held if there is no longer a working majority. It should be an electoral landslide on that basis. Time to clear out the politicians who don't respect manifesto pledges or the will of the people.
  7. The majority do not need to riot in a democracy. There's a comfortable electoral victory votes in the Brexit voters. And the sheer scale of engagement in the referendum poll means that serious numbers of people consider it the defining issue.
  8. It was both, one after another. Chris Evert-Lloyd at her peak, said her brother who only played low level college tennis beat her. http://www.topendsports.com/sport/tennis/men-v-women.htm
  9. They should have the men's champion playoff against the women's champion for a bonus prize.
  10. In Russia's case, the somewhat arbitrary sanctions imposed on their use of dollars by the USA has highlighted the need for an alternate monetary base. Not exactly mysterious.
  11. I see a lot of "police warning" posts about child safety. They tend to be formatted in a way that suggests a specific threat, but in fact are just empty fear ratcheting. Along the lines of: "A suspicious man in a blue car was seen talking to a child in the local area. Be extra, extra vigilant!" No request for info or detail to help identify an actual suspect or an actual crime, just the vaguest possible suggestion of detail to suggest a specific incident, and an assertion that parents should be as terrified as possible all the time. Disgusting.
  12. Signage proliferation is my number 1 "Inconsequential Thing That Annoys Me Intensely"
  13. Wait for primary school "fact" books, some of them are shocking.
