  1. Earlier in this thread I posted a clip from 1994 of her as a teenager calling the idea of a monarchy ‘a disgrace’. Her ‘views’ are whatever she thinks will get her the top job
  2. My work is collectively shitting itself. I suspect my interview may be cancelled tomorrow.
  3. Wow. She’s only 4 years older than me. The anti-monarchy former lib-dem has really gone full Palpatine, channeling all the dark energy
  4. Something was definitely up with Jack. He never shaved or cut his hair, yet it jever seemed to grow over the 3months or so he was on the island
  5. The extended cut of TTT fleshes lut Faramir’s motivations, whereby its not wholly (possibly even not mostly) the ring that’s tempting him, its finally winning Denethor’s love by giving him the ring, which Boromir failed to do. The ring was likely playing on thst ambition. It also makes it more noble when he sacrifices that goal and lets Frodo go.
  6. Just wait until a winged balrog appears in the show, and then shit will get ugly
  7. The UK only relied on Russia for about 5% of ita gas, however the rising price for gas is where we’re feeling it
  8. Boris Johnson’s last fart is still lingering in Downing Street, and already the first hint of dissent. The wife of MP Johnny Mercer has taken to Twitter in fury over her husband being removed as Minister for Veterans Affairs (the position done away with), which she says Truss said he’d keep in exchange for his vote. People replying saying she shoukd atop posting, which she seems disinclined to do. edit: i see Williamjm has already posted about another tweet of hers. Plenty of other posts. Here she refers to Truss as “that total muppet”.
  9. @liztruss keeps getting tagged on Twitter, problem is it’s not Liz Truss.
  10. Itbwas a “holy shit terrorism suicide bomber!!!!” Thread. If people remember the rolling hills of Turkey and OsRavan getting punked over Wheel of Time (Lying liars who lie!), then it might linger
  11. It was mentioned prominently on this forum pretty much as it happened, with a lot of rumour and wrong information. Started off as a middle-eastern suicide bomber shot on the underground fleeing police; turned out to be an innocent Brazilian electrician.
  12. Patel jumping before she’s pushed. Though apparently she’ll be replaced by Braverman. https://news.sky.com/story/priti-patel-resigns-as-home-secretary-12690816
  13. Former Tory MP’s Edwina Currie’s solution to the energy crisis…
  14. To be fair, book Strider was rocking about Middle-Earth with a broken sword. Was he even armed?
  15. How fucked up is Trump in this video?? You lot actually gave this prick nuclear launch codes (possibly among the secrets he’s paid forward to other countries)
  16. Rubbish. In the UK, at least, authors do benefit from library use. The more people pirate, the more traffic pirate sites get and the more the pirates benefit, and the more it happens, and the more the author suffers. And authors, barring thr big names, generally don’t make much money, not enough to live on. I speak from experience.
  17. Got an interview a week today. The other three candidates will be interviewed the following week, give or take. I’m earlier because I’m in Majorca that week.
  18. I’m relying on the Laura Kuensberg parody account for my news, these days. Which the account acknowledges, as it’s hard to parody this shitshow
  19. Edwina Currie scolds Martin Lewis for exaggerating the energy price crisis by calling it a ‘catastrophe’. Apparently people freezing to death is an inconvenience
