    UK Politics: A Partly Political Broadcast

    Have UK voters changed their minds on Brexit? Stats/polls highlighting how divided the country is.
  2. Donald Tusk cuts through the bullshit as per usual https://twitter.com/eucopresident/status/1181519363783974912 Why are our politicians so inept? Boris Johnson can't possibly "negotiate" with leaders of the calibre of Merkel and Tusk.

    Monty Python

    50 years since the TV series premiered Happy birthday, Python! Lots of documentaries on the Beeb at the moment.

    Bull**it Jobs

    This is the crux of it for me. No doubt there are some utterly useless jobs that would not be missed if they disappeared. But in our society people need to earn a living. And that sustains society through taxes, buying stuff, creating a need for services and leisure industries, and just general self-worth. If all the BS jobs are cut, how do people and society survive? Is there enough non-BS work to go around? Ha - I stopped reading the thread to reply, and I see that this has been discussed extensively since
  5. Ben Stokes is definitely the batsman I would choose to bat for my life. His match awareness and selflessness, not to mention his talent and work ethic, are inspirational. He did not even celebrate his 100 (just acknowledged Leach's congratulations with a fist bump) because it was all about getting England over the line.
  6. It is extraordinary that he can keep this level of sustained WTFery up for over three years. Has anyone asked him why he wants to buy Greenland, let alone how, what, huh, and WT actual F, Mr President?
  7. I will be quite happy if the Aussie innings finishes today! I agree, though, Jimmy is unlikely to be back today. It's down to Broad and Woakes, unless Moeen Ali wants to astound everyone.

    Libraries in fiction

    Inspired by this https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/jul/31/top-10-libraries-in-fiction-jrr-tolkien-borges-game-of-thrones I wondered what everyone's favourite fictional libraries are? For me it's all about the librarians. So the guardian of Terry Pratchett's Unseen University library is just wonderful (I can see why he wanted to stay an orangutan). And I've always liked Privet from the second Duncton Trilogy by William Horwood, who is both a scribe and a librarian.
  9. It's just a scan (ever-hopeful England fan).
  10. Jimmy is off for a scan on his calf. Not great news for England.
  11. Two early wickets! The Hollies Stand are showing no mercy.
  12. This must very weird for anyone who got into cricket after the World Cup. As the BBC live reporters said: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/cricket/47324464 Welcome to supporting England!
  13. And it means when he loses his MEP salary through self-inflicted Brexit he can pick up a UK Government wage ...
  14. Nigel Farage open to electoral pact with Boris Johnson
