  1. Having finished the new book, I am less wedded to the space alien theory - if they were from another planet, they shouldn't be able to interbreed with humans, whereas if they are offshoots of the same genetic lineage (similar to the Neanderthal/homo sapiens split) then it could happen.
  2. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    The Judean People's Front? It looks like lots of Labour MPs are going to vote against Corbyn's party line if Parliament gets to vote on Article 50
  3. They need Vilnius as well to get land access to Kaliningrad (the land route would be Lithuania + either Latvia or Belarus)
  4. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    So, hard Brexit it is then.
  5. Sherlock

    Americans wouldn't know who Jimmy Saville is though (probably why Toby Jones's last line was about finally breaking America)
  6. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    If it happens, I suspect it'll be more with Labour voters staying home than UKIP gaining them. 33% turnout is about what you'd expect for a by-election in that kind of seat anyway.
  7. The MCU isn't 616 though, it's Earth-199999
  8. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    The Tories will take Copeland (they're already putting out leaflets pointing out Corbyn's anti-nuclear policies, and this is just up the road from where they build the Trident subs), but I'd agree with Hereward on Stoke. I don't think the Lib Dems have enough in either place to get a shock upset, despite Copeland being right next door to Farron's seat.
  9. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    Another Labour MP quits, which means Corbyn now has to defend two by-elections, and Stoke is an opportunity for Nuttall to see how many working class Labour voters he can pull to UKIP.
  10. Cricket 30: World Twenty20 and beyond

    Could it be because he's English?
  11. The State of Palestine which was declared in 1988, is recognised by 136 other countries, and is a non-member observer of the UN (and if the historic borders are important to you, there are at least 20 countries that are younger).
  12. Because it's not claimed by the State of Palestine as being part of its territory.
  13. The Golan Heights aren't Palestinian though, that's Syrian territory, and so not that relevant when we're talking about a Palestinian state.
  14. Well, Snowden's a friend of Putin these days, so he's more likely to get a pardon from Trump.
  15. To Hell With you 2016!!!

    And Richard Adams has gone too - the author of Watership Down.
