    Winternight Trillogy - Katherine Arden

    Haven't enjoyed books like these in a long time, I can't be alone, right? The first book The Bear and the Nightingale is a Russian fantasy exploring old magic and new religion clashing in wintery northern forest. It's rich and immersive with a folklore that really bites. The lead characters form bonds and rivalries and outsiders breaking families while old magic seems to grip on this icy world. The Girl in the Tower is an even stronger novel I found. A slightly claustrophobic of the setting of the first novel, where winter confined characters is abandoned now and it opens up into legendary landscapes and the folklore of the first has even bigger consequences. Would heartily recommend and I can't wait for the third book. I haven't loved a lead character like Vasya so much in a long time. If you like themes of folklore, old worlds versus new and very kickass female leads then you might like this.

    I'm willing to believe Baker is just stupid However when it was pointed out to him, why not sincerely apologise? Instead his apology was a sort of 'you guys are all diseased' and 'that's that' - umm no, that's not how to sincerely apologize for being profoundly stupid. So tired to this inability to apologize thing.

    UK Politics: The Edge of Destruction

    What is exactly is the problem with holding European Elections? I mean brexiters have spent years telling us everyone in the EU was unelected so they shouldn't have a problem with it. It would be the first and only chance millions of EU citizens in the UK actually get to use their vote. The people who will be affected the most and who were made voiceless. I can't wait. I hope we all get to vote in them.

    Don't you mean the mood of 37% of the electorate? Not 'the country' And that was 3 years ago. Moods change. I'm a woman. That I understand completely ;-)

    UK Politics: What Goes DUP Must Come Down

    The hostile environment spreading to Irish citizens isn't really a surprise but I can't understand why the UK gov never seems to understand the obligations the GFA places upon them, from borders to citizens it's like the GFA is treated like it's a suggestion rather than a binding peace treaty. Appalling.

    UK Politics: A Third Meaningful Thread

    Not only have we the worst PM in history We have the worst opposition What did we do to deserve these 2? Jeremy Corbyn was asked yesterday how long any extension should be and he replied: "I think an extension to the end of June gives time at least for a discussion on this." What a stupid, stupid, stupid man.

    UK Politics: Time Marches On

    This for me too, it's a wonderful chance to meet remainers as i live in a Leave area surrounded by angry fact-free people who can't give me a single benefit of brexit after 3 years. it's very uplifting, plus it gives me a chance to demonstrate visibility my opposition to this fraud.

    The case was 3 weeks ago, the Court rules that if the ref had been legally binding it could be voided for illegality. Because it was advisory the court could not void it. It was all over the news and it was raised in the House of Commons. as Leave funding is under criminal investigation by the NCA don't you think that result is important? should we go ahead with something with the risk it was criminally funded hanging over it?

    UK Politics: Time Marches On

    I get that, for me it's about protecting our democracy I don't think we should enact a narrow result won by lies, cheating, data manipulation, law-breaking and funding that is currently under criminal investigation. If we don't protect our democracy from such things then what's the point. We don't have a democratic result. The law has said so. Ruling by the high court. I'm marching for revoke. Others will march for another vote. I just want this farce and fraud to end. That is why i am marching.

    So who's going to the march in London on the 23rd? I've roped in 5 so far, I've attended each Peoples Vote anti-brexit march so far, each one bigger than the one before and I'm hoping this is the biggest. We need to break the myth that people don't want another vote. Each march has been a light in the darkness, especially when you come from a Leave area, it's just uplifting to meet like-minded people speaking multiple languages and celebrating cooperation with neighbours instead of the xenophobic 'build a wall' people around me day to day.

    Today is the day Labour lose me forever Corbyn and his fantasy brexit unicorn can just f**k off now This is Labour's chance. And we know they won't step up.

    Indeed, if she manages to squeak her deal through it will be just more chaos as it won't hold, it will break down and usher in more and more chaos. A deal going through like that, with those voting for it hating it and those voting against hating those who voted for.....it will destroy parliament and probably the country

    the glorious Eddie Mair V Liz Truss yesterday Eddie: “What about people who have changed their minds on Brexit?” Liz Truss: “I don’t think people have changed their minds” Eddie: “You have” Liz Truss: “I have, thats true…” If May manages to squeak her deal through on the 3rd or 4th attempt that worries me Not because they can keep voting on the same thing but the people can never vote again But because it really doesn't bode well for the next few years. Any deal that has been overwhelmingly defeated more than once, then begrudgingly won by threats and arm twisting is a terrible way to begin the next and more difficult phase of brexit. It is not a good basis for this country to move on.
