  1. Ellaria's final confrontation with Cersei was brilliant, showing what a waste they made of a fine actress by giving her such a stupid storyline in Seasons 5 and 6.
  2. The Union is filled with disaffected nobles, many of whom are facing fines of 20% of their wealth/getting exiled for treason etc. If Jezal dies, an illegitimate child potentially can be used as a puppet claimant to the Throne.
  3. I think Hoff was speaking for all the Closed Council, and probably for Bayaz, too. Bayaz wants the marriage with Terez to produce heirs. A child by Ardee is an embrassment. If Glokta can say she is his child, the embarrassment goes away.
  4. It's in the blurb for the new trilogy. An acid-tongued investor and socialite. She sounds perfectly obnoxious.

    UK Politics: A Third Meaningful Thread

    Armed robbers were once the aristocracy of crime, although it rarely happens now, because so little cash is kept in banks and post offices now. Davis has been referred to the Crown Court for sentencing, so he must be looking at a suspended prison sentence at least. The seat has been a Conservative/Liberal marginal since 1985, so it will be an interesting by-election.

    UK Politics: A Third Meaningful Thread

    Chris Davies, MP for Brecon & Radnor, has just pleaded guilty to fiddling £700 expenses. I can't get over the stupidity of some MP's. Throwing away a job paying £80,000 a year for £700! Worse, he was actually entitled to this money, but was out of time to claim it, so he submitted two fake invoices. If you're going to be corrupt, you should at least be doing it for private jets and multi-million pound flats.
  7. That's pretty unfair on Sansa IMHO. She comes over as stupid and stuck up to begin with, but her character develops. I agree that his treatment of Daenerys was disgraceful. She was the one person he could safely vent his anger on, being the coward and bully that he was.
  8. Being born of incest doesn't necessarily result in mental illness. I doubt if Viserys was mentally ill, as opposed to obnoxious, stupid, entitled, and bitterly frustrated. Rhaegar may have come closer to mental illness, given his tendency towards depression and his obsession with prophecy. And, it's unclear (at this stage) whether Daenerys has any kind of mental disorder. It can be hard to tell at times whether she is experiencing the supernatural or simply hallucinating.

    Tusk is saying piss or get off the pot.

    You'd first require a vote that there should be a vote on MV3, notwithstanding the Speaker's ruling, before proceeding to MV3. As to the rest, one can't fault Tusk's logic. The three options remain the WA, No Deal, or Revoke A50. MP's have to choose between them. They can't spend any more time chasing unicorns.

    There is no chance of a UK/US trade deal being able to pass both Parliament and Congress.

    No, they'd actually have to do something to prevent leaving on 29th March. Anyway, we apparently have a very big announcement coming up at about 6 pm.

    Best GRRM Short Stories

    Meathouse Man I found very unpleasant, without being particularly gripping. i'd add The Skin Trade to the ones I recommended above. Also, The Stone City. if I had to choose one, it's In the Lost Lands.

    I'd favour a general election - but it looks as if it would produce a Parliament just as divided as it is now.
