  1. But a little Vladdy bonus as well
  2. Yes. As you say, hard to think why Trump is going down this route.

    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    You'll already know but it turns out number and phrase come from Ireland-registered Guido Fawkes who apparently didn't know, or didn't care to explain, that British citizens resident outwith the UK are allowed to take part in these petitions. Not in referendums, of course. But in petitions.

    I hadn't forgotten. I'm also where that a staggeringly high percentage of the people I know, including me, who obtain regular medicines from the NHS have either had the prescription stopped without consultation or have been invited in for an out-of-usual-timeframe review. But it's all fine and happens all the time.

    It's because we're led by people who've never played poker.

    There's at least one. The Brexit Tapes guy has done one.

    Look, some people have lost jobs before and we survived the Black Death so this is not a problem.

    THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. Now about the foreign actors involved in the leave campaign ...

    People voted knowing that there would be a noticeable shortage of routine prescription medicines a month before Brexit. Definitely.

    I am enjoying the bit where Kazakhstan are leading Scotland 3-0.
  12. I have got caught in a queue at an Australian polling station entirely by error. I was in a hurry and dodged the wrong side of a barrier not realising I was outside the Oz embassy and it was an overseas voting point for some election or other.
  13. Just certain ones. You'd be a fool to try and see any overarching link between them.
  14. It's actually stunning how inefficient the voting process is in the US. How few polling stations there are in *certain areas* for example. Those long queues are often for areas returning well under 50% turnout. Compare to the UK where the whole set up (some flaws aside) means there nobody able bodied can legitimately claim they are too far from a place to vote. The only thing I'd change in the UK is moving the regular voting day to a Sunday rather than a Thursday.
  15. That's the Second EU Referendum argument and it makes people very cross. Aside from the dead people who are far too stable to care.
