    UK No-Confidence Vote Fails, but Johnson get's ~4/7 of vote.

    And one from the amazing James O'Brien, though recorded a few hours prior to his 'leaving' speech.

    Roe v Wade is on deck

    The terms pro-choice and pro-life aren't ideal. An alternative for the pro-life point of view is relatively straight forward - pro-birth, or pro forced-birth if I was feeling ungenerous. An alternative for pro-choice isn't as easy - pro-abortion doesn't really do it, and something like anti...

    Roe v Wade is on deck

    I am also on another board, which is mostly comprised of very right wing Christian conservatives. As you can imagine, they're jumping for joy at the prospect of this court ruling, using florid language such as 'the horror of abortion' etc. However, I've been a member there (and here, actually)...

    Tokyo Olympics 2021

    Very likely. I don't wish to derail an otherwise largely positive thread with bigots though, even if I'm the one who caused it!

    Tokyo Olympics 2021

    I haven't seen much of the Olympics this year, unfortunately. I have fond memories of the London Olympics in 2012, which was the last time I remember being proud of my country, regardless of the relatively strong outing of 'Team GB' that year. I keep on seeing the usual bigoted suspects and...

    Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces

    Quite. I'm not going to argue with you, as your thoughts largely mirror my own. However, regardless of how ridiculous I find it as a concept- by virtue of being at the top of our antiquated social hierarchy, Prince Philip dying is newsworthy, despite the fact that I don't believe this should...

    Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces

    Yes, I'm a (minor) part of Operation Forth Bridge and we've had all the letters/tweets of mourning written up for several years.

    Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces

    Fortunately, the vaccine roll out has been one of the few things my government hasn't been murderously incompetent at. On the subject though: Link

    Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces

    Guardian's obituary is dated 21 Feb by mistake. So evidently they thought the last health issue he had was it. Oops

    Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces

    Link He died this morning. Unlike when the Queen dies, there is unlikely to be huge ceremony on the lead up to his funeral 10 days from now (though the funeral itself will be ceremonious). How it will all happen in Covid is an interesting question, however.

    Impeachment II thread

    Reading through the usual right-wing forums I'm seeing them excusing Trump because he did not actually say the words 'go storm the capitol building'. Therefore he cannot have incited violence or insurrection and it all just the usual TDS and extreme left-wing socialist MSN blowing the whole...

    So, the UK has officially shot itself in the foot...

    We'll survive. But the point is brexit was meant to make things better. Since 2016 the pound has already been devalued. £100 in Euros, 22nd June 2016 = 130.5 Euros. £100 in Euros, January 2020 = 112.6 Euros. This deal means that we have swapped free access for what we import (goods), for no...

    So, the UK has officially shot itself in the foot...

    We shot ourselves in the foot in 2016. Since then we've just been heaping embarrassment upon ourselves, caused mostly by our malicious right-wing print media and our mendacious government.

    So, the UK has officially shot itself in the foot...

    That was a bit of a monologue! I'm still spitting feathers about the whole thing and am not ready to 'move on' yet. But yes, there is a lot of cross over with brexit and Trumpism

    So, the UK has officially shot itself in the foot...

    Indeed. A rough timeline is as follows: The Brexit referendum was mainly designed by the Tories to see off Nigel Farage and his UKIP party which was slowly eating into Tory votes. The EU prior to this point wasn't even on the top 10 list of things voters cared about, but it has been an issue...

    So, the UK has officially shot itself in the foot...

    ... and now will spend the next few years cutting off more toes. What a pointless exercise. As there's no other threads on this, and as today the first day the UK has officially left the EU (dragging Scotland out against its wishes and putting a border in the Irish Sea, not to mention the...

    Trump Pardons Predictions

    So, it appears Trump is going to pardon Michael Flynn before he pops off in January: Source Not surprising, though I believe Flynn being pardoned does possibly have repercussions for any potential court cases in future. Anyone else we believe will be on the list of those he pardons?
