  1. No, she really doesn't. The opinion polls tell us that. I think the more likely explanation is that. Heaven forfend, she is actually a genuine One Nation Tory, who doesn't happen to be a closet bigot, capitalist lackey and hater of poor people. They do actually exist.

    What is this cricket, of which you speak? Cycling, gymnastics, sailing, that's what we do in the summer.

    The diving judging is absolutely fucking unbelievable. One of the Brazilians landed n his back without even doing the dive he was attemption and got a couple of 8.5s, a 7.5 and several 2.5s. When they dropped the extreme scores, they still got a 7.5. It's just cheating.

    Fantastic gold for GB in the kayaking!

    And yet, they are still infinitely preferable to 30 seconds of John Fucking Inverdale.
  6. US elections - may the polls be ever in your favor

    While I agree with the thrust of your post, I have to note that the point about Brexit is not accurate. The biggest majorities for Brexit were often in the east of England and the industrial north where they have very real experience of mass migration and feel the consequences in social change and downward pressure on wages. The leafy suburbs and rich, rural England, where there is very little immigration and wages are high, almost all voted to Remain.

    I'm not sure the GB team being covered in spunk would pass the TV censors.

    Fantastic fight back from England, though I still think they're eminently capable of collapsing like a house of cards and leaving Pakistan with 200 to win in the fourth innings.
  12. Who trotted out the T Word? The Met was careful not to rule it out, while saying they thought it was a mental health issue, and the government and the BBC carefully kept to that line. Who do you think is trying to keep the people on the edge of panic and for what purpose?
  13. economics & ethics of praise

    Surely the correct response depends on how much lower in the social hierarchy the complimenter is. If it was a charming peasant, the response was perfectly reasonable. If it was a social equal, regrettably unfortunate. If it was a person of quality, you should expect a challenge by first delivery.

    You hated the London one.as I recall. You felt the lack of authoritarian precision was amateurish.
