    UK Politics: The End of May

    So she’s going on the 7th June, the end of a long and dignified premiership that did a remarkable job of bringing the country back together after the referendum.

    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    I voted Green in the end in the hope it’ll help them get that 5th seat.

    My friend’s girlfriend is a Polish resident in the UK, and she was turned away today for this exact reason.

    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    I’m in the East Midlands and I was planning on voting Lib Dem, but having looked at the polls and the link posted above I’m wondering if I’d be better off voting Green in the hope that they’ll get the 5th seat. However I think the chances of Green getting enough votes are still quite remote and I might just be better off reinforcing the Lib Dem vote. I just don’t know.

    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48366977 “But Laura Kuenssberg says the PM has declined to meet the ministers - who are both seen as possible contenders to be the next Conservative leader - and she has left Downing Street to see the Queen for her weekly meeting.” Sounds almost like her version of going to the Winchester for a pint and waiting for all this blow over.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    This was before the dusting, no? Logically, she should have been dusted, but given that there is a set up with a screen at the end searching for her location, it looks like she was not.

    Whataboutism as a Rhetorical Tool

    I was on the way home from work this week talking about eating less meat to reduce my carbon footprint, and the person I was talking to literally said, “well what about the factories in China?” It’s almost always a self-serving deflection tool.

    Anecdotally, I and several of my friends might have voted labour under different circumstances, but won’t right now because they won’t commit to a position (preferably remain). I think this is probably a common feeling.

    UK Politics: Awaiting MV3

    So, conscious that splitting the vote is still a thing in this form of PR, do you think I’m better off voting Lib Dem or Change? This is a single issue for me, as other policies will not matter if we leave anyway, so I want to vote for the party with the best chance of success. The Independent Group made headlines this year, but is Change more recognised and more likely to get votes than the Lib Dems? I haven’t seen much polling information that hasn’t come from the Express as linked above.

    Not sure any of the votes have been particularly “meaningful”, let alone 3 of them.

    UK Politics: What Goes DUP Must Come Down

    For what it’s worth, “Grand Wizard” in reference to the KKK came up in my GCSE history curriculum. To suggest the title would be used by a British politician in complete innocent ignorance of its connotations is insulting. In order to get her deal through, assuming she circumvents Bercow (one of “substantial” changes suggested by Downing Street to allow the vote has been that the departure date has no changed, which is pretty weak), May needs the DUP to at least abstain, right? If they vote against MV3 as they’ve now said they would, you’d need a few opposition MPs to get cold feet to pass the deal.

    How often have you cracked your phone?

    Not once. I’m always mystified by how many cracked screens I’ve seen. I’m clumsy and have dropped my phone phone many times before, but it’s never cracked.

    UK Politics: Time Marches On

    So far, 10 Tory MPs who voted against the deal last time have said they will now back it. Only 108 to go!

    Video Games: In the Grim Darkness of licensed Games.

    So in my ongoing search for a laptop, I have another question. I have the choice between a GTX 1050 or a 1050 Ti. Now, most places will tell you that the 1050 only has 2GB, while the Ti has 4, but this appears to be a version of the 1050 that does have 4GB, which I’ve read is used in some laptops. Given all comparison sites assume that you’re comparing the 2GB 1050, I really don’t know how the 4GB version compares to the Ti. I’m guessing that the difference is not really noticeable apart from at higher resolutions and framerates, and I doubt it’s enough to pay an extra £50 for. Just wanted to hear some opinions.

    As an owner of an xbone, who used to play a lot of Halo before it became shit, the only reason to get an xbone over a PS4 or a PC is if you’re friends already have one and you want to play with them.
