    The riots will begin when they are all exonerated.

    That could potentially stoke some anger in those otherwise mild-mannered heavily armed young officers.

    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    So since nobody's going to sack Cummings because he has dirt on them, is anyone likely to murder him? Or does he have an insurance policy hidden away?

    Seeing this reminded me of a post I made nearly 13 years ago: If only Tony Benn had shown the same concern for his offspring...

    Let's wait and see if I intend sticking around for a while first PMs are now back at a manageable size. I archived most of them in a safe place. There's still a lot of heavy late-night stuff to trawl through involving one of America's most original moralists, a certain Mr. B. Scream of New York. How is everyone anyway?

    My PMs are at 260%. Probably the size of my box was reduced when I was demoted from moderatorship. There's a lot of interesting stuff in there including some grand conversations with Banshees Scream, so I'm slowly working though them, deleting the less interesting ones. It should only be a matter of weeks before I'm reachable by PM.

    Is Hein Gone? I have fine, if somewhat unclear memories of getting severely guttered with him in a bar in Utrecht a few years ago. Nice chap.

    Hello all. Glad to see my baby (not to say brainchild) is still on the go. I'm still available to judge guilt of Crimes Against Humanity if anyone needs me to. I know I've got it well wrong before in at least one case. Luckily the corpse in question was dead already. Big thanks to Death Impends for keeping the show going. Is it too late to join in?

    The dead of 2016

    This bloke https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/jul/27/george-mcrobie-obituary?CMP=share_btn_link George McRobie has died. Interesting to me because he was my great uncle. I never actually managed to meet him but he was clearly a top fellow. Tomorrow I'm going to visit the house near Moscow where he spent part of his childhood and to meet my cousin three times removed for the first time who was Uncle George's first cousin. All very exciting. It seems I have a few ancestors and distant relatives who were actually good for something.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    In his younger days, Grass was in the Waffen SS, a fact which he managed to keep secret for quite a while. After that he had a hard job maintaining his status as honorary citizen of Gdansk.

    Nice to see this is still on the go. I trust Rotten Ali is still running it in a suitably prejudiced and arbitrary manner, true to the spirit of its founder?

    This is appauling: "quite frankly" is clearly a sub-clause and, therefore, needs commas on either side and "This is more harsh" simply continues the sentence so the "t" should be lower case! This from someone who thinks "peddling" has something to do with riding a bicycle

    That's a lucky break for Mary then. Still strictly speaking a breach of the spirit of the rule, but possibly meriting a slightly lesser penalty.

    Death List Convention

    There was a small DL Con held on Tuesday last in the Dutch town of Utrecht. Magere Hein was there and I think I was there too. Much beer was drunk. Of that I am certain. A most enjoyable event, hopefully to be repeated.

    Well. I'm reminded of something I wrote a week or two ago about Rule 5: "I think the spirit of the law in this case intends to penalise those selecting very young, low hanging fruit of the tabloid variety." Admittedly he isn't extremely young, though far too young to die. I can't imagine how he could be more tabloid than he is. I mean his widow's name is Cola for pity's sake. I don't know, I've been out of the country for 20 years, but back then you would have got in the papers just for being called Cola. Low hanging fruit definitely. Which brings us to the question of his celebrity. Taking the rule literally. it follows that since his death was reported in the paper he must be famous enough to qualify for celebrity. Unfortunately his death was reported in the Mail, an organ which no intelligent person in the world, never mind Notapotato, could consider to be a reliable, respectable source of international news. So that's definitely an infringement, unless someone can find an obit somewhere else. The rules don't specify the penalty for breaking rule 2 but the tacit implication is that the candidate is not a valid choice and thus scores no points. Include with this the penalty for breaking Rule 5 and Mary should actually be getting minus points for his candidate. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That was me summarily ridiculing MPFC. Others should feel free to join in. PS: I'll leave it up to Rotten Ali to decide what really to do. He does a grand job and is probably a bit fairer than me.
