    UK Politics - From Russia with Love

    It's astonished me how quickly the left has embraced the mantra of economic growth above all. I'm sure that used to be a right wing thing. Is it just to try to win the immigration argument? Infinite population growth will simply lead to worse standards of living in the long run, as the planet is finite in extent. Humanity (and the planet) will be much better off if we accept the short term pain of an aging population, and allow numbers to stabilise.

    I don't think Rain Wilds are a chore at all, but the first two are a little slower than usual for Hobb. It's obvious from the structure that it started as a 1-book concept.

    Nothing against Karjakin, but I really hope it's not him again.

    He was nuts, yes. Unfortunately the film messed up the chess. :/

    Not the best result for the American trio.
  7. I've really liked this season so far, but the preview for the next episode made it look absolutely atrocious.

    Cycling 2019 - the British are coming.

    A big multi-mountain stage, and Dumoulin was the strongest of the lot. Impressive. Yates takes the white jersey, which is looking like the most interesting competition left, as he's a far weaker TTer than Jungels.

    Yeah he's still the clear favourite here. It was actually a bit of a disappointing stage in the end. I was expecting attacks earlier. And I've no idea what Landa was thinking leading out the sprint.

    Yep, today should be a lot of fun.

    I was annoyed that they scheduled the Mount Etna stage when I was at work - Guess I didn't miss much in the end. Pleased to see Yates, Thomas and Carthy all in the front group, even if it was a pretty big group!

    Fun end to the stage though with the sprinters failing. I'm looking forwards to Landa vs Thomas later on.

    I have it. It's all turquoise and gold and shiny. Also going to a Robin Hobb talk on the 5th.
