  1. Has anyone read______?

    No, not that I recall. There are fairly graphic torture scenes, though. It's pretty dark, not so much because of the level of violence, but the whole series is infused with hopelessness. I found it too depressing.
  2. "Minor" IS attacks in Europe

    True, and I contemplated noting that my post, but Afghanistan and Pakistan's anti-West extremist problem is largely down to Saudi-sponsored wahhabism in the madrassahs, overturning their sufi Islamic tradition. Turkey is not really relevant, as it is a domestic, not anti-Western phenomenon, except where its source is from Syria.
  3. Boycott Olympics!

    Untrue. She was not very good until she was in her mid-twenties, had spectacular muscle growth, acne problems and a noticably deeper voice. She also retired just before random testing came in, and it has been alleged that 20 other Seoul medal winners, including her, failed drug test, but the IOC hushed them up on the grounds that all the sprinting winners failing would have killed the sport, so she was told to retire instead.
  4. You're obviously a werewolf.
  5. U.S. Elections - Philadelphia edition

    I would have thought it would be tough to argue that a country that the US is not at war with, and with which it maintains diplomatic relations, can reasonably be called an enemy in legal terms.
  6. "Minor" IS attacks in Europe

    The US has seen far more Islamist terror attacks in recent years than Britain, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Spain, Italy, Portugal or Eastern Europe. Just saying. This isn't really an Islam problem as such, this is an Arab problem. And France, Belgium, and increasingly Germany, are where this problem exists in Europe, because of their immigrant mix. NB I'm not saying this an intrinsic problem with Arabs, but a result of political repression, lack of national esteem, geopolitical issues and, of course, the Saudis and their promotion of wahhabism.
  7. I can't find a link without a paywall, but The Times poll is saying that 2.5m Labour voters are now backing May over Corbyn. As Corbyn supporters are apparently largely concentrated in London and the southeast, i.e. often in unwinnable Tory seats, that could be even more catastrophic than it sounds,
  8. Boycott Olympics!

    Word.
  9. Boycott Olympics!

    I feel exactly the same way about the Premiership, which is why I haven't watched it for 15 years, but I recognise that some people love the business/sport combo and can somehow reconcile that with their (often recent) professed tribal allegiance. Likewise, my tribal allegiance will make the Olympics unmissable for me. I'll watch every British medal chance and cheer like a maniac.
  10. U.S. Elections - Philadelphia edition

    Brexit isn't necessarily, or even probably, a defeat for neo-liberalism. It is, however, a necessary precondition for a defeat of neo-liberalism (in the unlikely event the Labour Party gets its act together)
  11. Customer Complaints: Do you make them?

    I'm British, therefore I don't understand the question.
  12. Cricket 30: World Twenty20 and beyond

    Inexplicable.
  13. Cricket 30: World Twenty20 and beyond

    Not sure what they were playing at in that last hour before tea. I wish Stokes had still been in, might have avoided the go slow.
  14. England thrash Australia in Ashes.
  15. I agree wholeheartedly with that case.
