    Mobile phone advice (is this an entertainment topic?)

    I hear their spying software is top notch too!

    UK Politics: Time Marches On

    Good to see Nadhim Zahawi, usually one of May's most hawkish Brexiters, absolutely shitting himself on Newsnight tonight. His repeated claim that Parliament voted last week to allow a third meaningful vote was an outright lie. Well done to Maitliss for pulling him up on it. He also conceded that no deal is basically off the table.

    There is absolutely no chance of no deal. Rees-Mogg and his chums are deluded. If it comes to it, Article 50 will be revoked.

    I read earlier that she might dissolve this parliament for a few days, then reconvene and present her crappy deal again. This is what I call real democracy.

    Because Farage is a crook and a chancer. Also, 'Gammonball Run'.

    I think we need to be really careful about depicting all Brexiters as racists or far right nutters. Full disclosure: I was voting leave until pretty close to the actual referendum. My issues with the EU had nothing to do with immigration. What I had a problem with was people like this. TTIP was terrifying. We faced the very real prospect of the NHS and the rest of our public services being auctioned off to US corporations. TTIP also included provision for the creation of some kind of kangaroo corporate legal framework whereby nation states could be easily sued by US corporations if they objected to any taxes or regulations that were imposed. Ironically, it was only massive public opposition in Germany and France that killed it. Those governments finally listened to their people, while the British government couldn't wait to get it implemented. They still can't. So as it turns out the EU is protecting us from our own leaders. That's why I changed my vote. If the Tories get their Brexit, they'll implement far worse than TTIP. Chlorinated chicken and Schwarzenegger-beef will be the least of our concerns.

    What he should have said was Western news media hates Muslims.

    There is zero chance of us not revoking if the extension gets vetoed.

    For me, yes. Worst case scenario now appears to be May's deal, which, while not exactly brilliant, isn't the end of the world. The most democratic thing now is to have another referendum with two choices: May's Deal or Status Quo.

    Respectfully, fuck off with that pretentious bollocks. The Pistols set the punk scene on fire and went on to influence some of the biggest bands in history. /derail

    It is dying a slow, miserable death. Its insides are sliding out of its arse, and now, hopefully, Farage's fascist mates will deliver the coup de grace by vetoing the extension.

    Bah. It'd be far more appropriate to have Anarchy in the UK. I am an anti-Christ I am an anarchist Don't know what I want But I know how to get it I want to destroy the passerby 'Cause I want to be anarchy No dogs body Anarchy for the U.K.
