    UK Politics: Royal Weddings and Referendums

    Not only has he basically turned up for a visit and undermined his host by suggesting someone else should have her job: he's declaring that we won't get a deal with the US unless we go for a hard Brexit. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44815558# So glad we have the US for an ally. We wouldn't want to be subservient to the EU. Being subservient to the US is so much better. They have better TV!

    Player of the tournament so far

    You don't, necessarily (cf Forlan 2010, Schillachi 1990) but it's really between Mbappe and Modric, I'd think. Possibly one of the Belgians might be in with a shout.

    I would suggest to you that the future of the EU as an entity looks safer than the future of the UK as an entity.

    Boris Johnson does not give a fuck. He has no genuine opinions on Europe, only phony ones that he decided would benefit his career. If he thought going back into the EU complete with Euro membership and all would make him Prime Minister, he'd be on it like a flash.

    Football: Jules Rimet Still Gleaming

    It's a good story but I prefer the day Dean Windass got three red cards in one match playing for Aberdeen.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    Not sure I agree. This administration is characterised by corruption. The finances matter.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    Not really. You keep saying this as if people are talking about deplatforming anyone and everyone who disagrees with them. But they're not. They're talking about a very specific group of people - fascists. Contrary to what you keep asserting, the people you're arguing with are very clear about who is a fascist and who is just someone they disagree with, and about the fact that they do not approve of deplatforming the latter. You're the one desperate to obscure the difference, because you need that smokescreen to (as OGE says) make it look as if you're arguing a point of principle instead of being solely interested in attacking anti-fascism. It's not working.

    In this discussion, it really does. Then you don't understand the meaning of the word 'fascist'. It's not a description of certain behaviours. It's an ideology.

    2018 Semi Finals - FRA vs BEL & ENG vs CRO

    There's got to be a line about how it turns out the easy route to the final eventually led to the same place as the harder one, but I'm too tired to think of it.

    But realistically, he'll be lucky to survive three years.

    On the contrary: the World Cup trophy is going home. To the country that created it. Unless Croatia can pull off something stunning, anyway. I've got to say, in the first half Croatia looked the team that everyone expected England to beat, but in the second half they were a whole different team. By contrast, in the first half England looked organised and composed, but in the second half the shape started to go and that was it. They were left hoping for a moment of inspiration that never arrived. So the third place playoff is the Belgium-England rematch, making it the second Belgium-England match in the tournament that neither side really wanted to play. France-Croatia for the final. No Brexit Final.

    It's not how many friends I have. It's that I can't be bothered with more fucking Meowth and Rattata.

    Mbappe will win player of the tournament because defenders, goalkeepers, and midfielders who do an essential tactical role linking up the play never win player of the tournament awards. Players who score goals, terrorise defences and produce good TV moments win it.

    I'm not suggesting you think this is a desirable outcome: sorry if that wasn't clear. But what I am saying is that suggesting people 'just make their peace' with an outcome that could see them lose their job, or worse, comes over as a bit tactless. Those people, quite reasonably, may still want to fight that outcome, even if the fight seems hopeless to you.
