    Outside. Not in the pubs, clubs, common areas. Revolutionary.

    We'll see what happens and I don't deny it may be hard to enforce, but from a personal standpoint, I couldn't care less. I've never smoked a cigarette in my life and was part of the first generation of uni students where smoking was banned in public places. It's becoming a thing of the past, and this will, presumably, further that objective. Vapes are the bigger issue now and God knows where that goes. Is it hypocritical? Probably. But I'm not fussed. Plus Liz Truss is speaking up in opposition of this, so I know I'm on the right side of it.

  4. I still need to have a listen to some of these, but am I the only one who thinks Better in Time is a better Leona song than Happy? I'll need to listen to them both, Happy's vaguer in my head.

    Number 10 Eid Celebrations Plan 1. Announce annual Eid Celebration reception at Downing Street. 2. Hear that several people and groups are planning to boycott reception due to response to Gaza. 3. Get Lord Cameron to insist people should go and engage with the government. 4. Talk about how much you're looking forward to hosting the reception and discussing the issues. 5. Wimp out of attending your own half-attended Eid reception claiming "business in parliament" made it impossible, making mugs of those prepared to meet you halfway. Rishi Sunak everybody! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-68818484

    Posting this as it popped up on Facebook. If I'm right, that's this Saturday's Times under his arm, so would back up the "very recent pic" description. Still walking to the shop, not sure he's changed much since the last pics? He sure likes that red waistcoat!

    Donald Trump supporter (woman) on the 6 O'Clock news saying if he's put in jail, millions of people will grab their guns and we'll have a civil war. Genuinely got to the stage where I said out loud "go right ahead love, we'll kill every fucking one of you". Sick to the back teeth of his bullshit and how people will work against their own self interests to enable him. It's a total messiah complex and it's not just dangerous it's insane. (Oh, and no, I'm not American, so I can't take part in a civil war, but would it really remain civil in that situation?)
  8. It'll never happen in a million years. Unless open war was declared on the UK before January (which I cannot see happening) then there has to be a general election. And even if we were at war, it would require an Act of Parliament to suspend the election for another year (which would need renewing every 12 months) and there is no way, unless in the direst of circumstances, that Parliament would agree to that. It needs 26 Tory MPs to vote with the opposition to defeat the government, and there's way more than that standing down in the next 6 months who would kibosh a delay, not to mention those rare creatures "Tories with a moral compass" who would see it as the shameless power grab it would be. It's not going to happen. Sooner or later, Sunak the Squatter will have to face the music and give us a say on his party's decade-and-a-half in power.

    Science fiction surely?

    No doubt an inspiring tale of pulling herself up by her bootstraps to buy a pokey little terraced house, not a tale of how her lucrative media career and lack of dependents have allowed her buy a nice country pad for herself. These Gen X and Gen Z moaners just need to pull their finger out!

Platnum — What’s It Gonna Be Probably my last vote for the Noisettes as I'm sure they'll be too far gone tomorrow, but that song is great. Not sure it would end up in my final 4, but definitely shouldn't be going this early.

    Following up on this, the news that Varada Sethu is joining Who was officially confirmed this week, but it seems Ruby's going nowhere and there will be 2 companions on the TARDIS in Season 2 instead!

    Thousands of missiles fired at Gaza, we've not looked to shoot down a single one. A foreign embassy flattened, we didn't say a word. Now we're blowing up Iranian missiles not aimed at us. This is bound to end well.
  14. Yeah, not saying I'd put them both (or either necessarily) through, but they're both good. Haven't yet settled on my 4 going through. Definitely the best version of Hallelujah anyway.
  15. This is just what I've always done. I looked at the doubles and pick the one I like best. There's one in the 08-09 round for Leona Lewis.
