It’s not like the US has the death pena- Oh wait. We do...

 

Believe me, we really do not see the US as a role model country, in any aspect, by any stretch of the imagination.

...........and who the fuck actually still believes in the accuracy of polls nowdays?

 

Well, a vast number* of Leave voters have an IQ about half the number of their age.

 

*No, not all of them. Probably around 53%, looking at the (yes, I know, almost certainly exaggerated) poll.

Chris Grayling is Schrodinger's Tory party chairman, apparently. Agreed to it, the promotion publicised, and then they realised the party wouldn't take to it? Or something like that.

 

It's like someone told May "no one could be as incompetent as Jeremy Corbyn in 2016" and she said "I'll take that bet"...

There's certainly been shutdowns before but yeah, I can't recall one when the Republicans control all 3 branches of government? One for our US political experts - @Death Impends?

I don't think the GOP had the full trinity since the days of Herbert Hoover? So probably never.

 

ETA I was wrong re the trinity thing, they had it recently as Dubya days. But there were no shutdowns during his presidency either.

Who cares?

 

Multiple shutdowns over the years, which only proves politicos with a big wage care fuck all.

 

A big plus for The Donald.

Presidency now using military as bargaining chips...pay the military veterans and take money away from CHIP, healthcare, etc.

 

If the military fight for a safe, secure future for the children of the USA, are they only fighting for the future of rich white kids?

 

Hmm....

Henry Bolton, off of UKIP, has a unanimous vote of no confidence handed to him by his party. He's defying his party's will and staying on, as a contest would 'finish the party'.

 

Oh no. Shame. I mean, if UKIP was a Deathlistable entry, it'd neighbour all the cancer certs.

Here is a test.
If you do not want to take your bare hands and end the life of these two, or at least allow the State to do it....

you, my friend, are a devout pacifist.


How did you fare?

Faaaaar from a pacifist, so my take is in an over populated World, one less yank is good.

 

3 is better, kill them both.

BBC banging on about women's suffrage this afternoon, and how far we have to go to achieve equality for women on the pay gap, representation in Parliament, blah blah blah.

 

Here's another couple of suggestions to achieve that desired "equality":

 

Legislate to ensure that women pay equal rates of car insurance.

 

Ensure that women criminals are locked up as much as their male equivalents.

 

Legislate to ensure that rape crisis and domestic violence centres and refuges cater for male victims.

 

And maybe in 50 years time (assuming lack of nuclear holocaust or global warming destruction), we'll still be talking about how these inequalities have still to be addressed....;)

Especially when a female teacher has sex with a male student.   Can you imagine if 'probation' or minor punishment (a year in jail etc) was doled out to male teachers in the same boat?

There was a case of this at my school (both a female teacher and male teacher, my school wasn't brilliant). Male teacher locked a couple of 15 year old kids in his classroom and asked them some inappropriate questions, he was escorted from the school by the police, banned from teaching, eventually convicted of indecent somethingorother and he ultimately topped himself. Female teacher had an affair with a 14 year old, no word of a lie, didn't even get fucking sacked until some concerned parents found out months later and complained to the school.

List here from last year (pdf).

 

Apparently Oxfam only pay their top execs 129 grand a year. Only, next to Save the Children's 327 grand! :o

 

Think I picked the wrong line of work, clearly.

These issues relate to happenings seven years ago. I smell a rat when one of the tabloids is running a stop giving money to foreigners campaign. Oxfam is the major mechanism in how UK foreign aid gets spent

Marking time till Europe is sorted.

 

Willz, genuine question re that.

 

A Federal One State Europe with the headquarters in Germany equates to what in your mind?

 

Yet that is what you want.........
