    To be fair, the Glastonbury festival isn't in Glastonbury either.
  2. Probably not, in reference to that. Where it does differ, is that as an EFTA member they can negotiate their own trade deals, decide on their own tariffs and are not under the jurisdiction of the ECJ (although the EFTA Court is unlikely to deviate much from what the ECJ would say). However they do have to accept freedom of movement. So if you're a free-marketeer-at-all-costs like Hannan or DFDS Liam Fox then it should be ideal. Most of those silly "red lines" that the Prime Minister announced unnecessarily are sorted. However if you're a shouty bell-end like Farage who says that immigration is what it's all about then it doesn't. And whichever route they take is going to piss off a majority of people. Because when loads of people are promised different things, some of them don't get what they thought they were voting for.
  3. "We want to have control of our borders" "Like the one land border that the UK has with the EU?" "Oh no, not that one. We'd like to keep that one exactly as it is, please" Still, it's not a complete incoherent mess like the Future Customs Arrangements paper. The Ireland one is completely unrealistic, but at least they clearly understand all the words that they're using.

    And only seven more episodes until it's finished forever.

    He definitely didn't. He was scouting Gendry and his ilk as evidence that the official three weren't Robert's. Not to crown him/them. When Robert died, Ned's vote went to Stannis as being next in line.
  6. Game of Thrones (Spoilers)

    I'm struggling with character motivation more than teleporting. "So, it's like this your Grace. My crippled little brother who I've not seen for years has just rocked up home again. Long story short, he's apparently magic now and he says that they're about to attack Eastwatch. What's that? Yes, I know that I knew already that they would attack Eastwatch and that's why I sent the Wildlings there, but this apparently magic child saying it as well means I need to go there now. And do what? Well, killing them is out of the question, that's why I'm here talking to you. So I thought I'd just capture one to show Cersei. Why? Well we need her to know about it. I know you obliterated her army, and as far as we know she has nothing but a teleporting navy left. And she'll obviously kill any of us who turn up with this unexpected zombie, but we need to tell her about it. Before you then kill her and take her throne. How many men do I need? I thought I'd just go on my own. I've got this ginger mate who's up for stuff like this. Oh, alright. I'll take along the weird scaly bloke who keeps trying to hug you and this kid that Davos has brought back as well. Yes, I'll bring you back something nice. Later!" Most incoherent plan ever.

    If he ends up on the pointy end of that dagger I'm not sure it's going to matter what playing he is doing.
  8. Game of Thrones (Spoilers)

    I believe it's the one that Sansa sent back when she was Cersei's prisoner calling Ned a traitor and telling Robb to stop fighting.
  9. Game of Thrones (Spoilers)

    I'm guessing that playing Ned Stark in that theatre company last year wasn't paying the bills...
  10. That step is optional. May was fast-tracked due to her exceptional promise straight into the role of "just another bloody Tory".
  11. As per the current Private Eye, it's not his time yet. He's about to graduate to the job of "funny Tory", with his 19th Century way of speaking and his amusingly named children. His predecessor Boris, is promoted to the role of "just another bloody Tory", which is a vital step on the ladder to becoming Prime Minister. Rees-Mogg needs to pay his dues at being "the funny one" before he gets a stab at the top job.
  12. U.S. Politics

    Context is everything. I expect he's just disappointed that they've got them before we have.
  13. If he wants a case study of somebody unwittingly spreading political propaganda because they didn't think to check the truth behind it, I've got an example he might want to use...
  14. Given that you seem to have accidentally glossed over the response to this, what did that professor say when you went back and told him that he'd been taken in by a fake poster and he'd been passing it off as true to his students?
