  1. U.S. Politics

    Do you now want to go back to that long list of terrible stuff about Bill Clinton on the previous page and filter out the ones that are rumours, unproven or just plain old "actually about a different person". Of course you don't. Because it won't give you any opportunities to wet your knickers about gender studies.
  2. U.S. Politics

    I think that he was laughing at your amusing hypocrisy of going from how we should be "focusing on how we can influence politics rather than ridiculing a guy over his tone of voice and hair" to "just a woman in a pantsuit" in a matter of seconds.
  3. Undoubtedly. It's s site that is well worth reading (in my unlearned opinion, anyway) Written by a former UKIP member and prospective MEP candidate - so any pro-EU bias is unlikely. And he seems pretty convinced that nobody involved (on both sides, but obviously more on ours) seems to have any idea of what they're about to come up against.
  4. The excellent (and to my eyes, pretty non-partisan) eureferendum.com blog seems to push through the bullshit and ignorance (in the literal, "not understanding" sense) of most commentators (tl,dr - the bold bit in the middle)
  5. U.S. Politics

    But at least he was able to redeem himself through the world of mid-90s American urban music.

    Certainly not legally.
  7. General Election 2017

    The main change in SDLT in 2014 was that anybody keeping rather than selling a property pays a 3% surcharge. So buying a second or investment property for £400k pays twelve grand more than they used to. I fail to see how that is anything other than beneficial for someone buying a first home or looking to move to something bigger for their family. The other change made it a bit cheaper (SDLT wise) to buy a property worth between £250k - £450k and more expensive to buy something with a higher price than that. But not much more expensive, until you move towards the million pound mark. At £600,000 for example it's now £20k rather than £18k. Again, I fail to see how that is a bad thing.

    How can people still be doing piss-poor Downfall parodies in 2017? What next, a parody Budweiser "Whassup" advert?

    "Ma'am, do you accept that what the country really needs at this difficult time is strong and stable leadership?"
  10. General Election 2017

    Trying to wring the last few pennies out of a meagre BBC Comedy budget?
  11. 2017 European general elections

    Yeah, there are dicks voting in every poll. The French should be commended that only 11m of them are dicks rather than the 17m that we've got. So problems-wise, they're doing better than we are.
  12. Those aren't the words of somebody who knows something and also knows that in order to convince others of it he has to lie. Those are the words of somebody with a fundamental lack of understanding and is letting that lack of understanding shape their ideology. His IQ is probably perfectly normal, likely higher than most. But that doesn't mean he's not stupid.
  13. That as well, but he is also actually, properly stupid. Davis's tweets from last year So all the stuff he thought and said in the run up to the referendum, that was from a position of not knowing what the EU was, how it worked or what limitations we were going to see if we were to vote to leave. "The first calling point of the UK's negotiator immediately after #Brexit will not be Brussels, it will be Berlin, to strike a deal" How can someone who people actually pay attention to have that little of an clue about what he is talking about? I'm sure he'll have been put right about it now, but how on earth is he going to be able to navigate the absurd level of technical detail that is going to be needed in this negotiation, when as recently as twelve months ago he knew less about it than any A-level Politics student? So, he's not just stupid, he's dangerously stupid.
  14. That's not quite right. He's actually far stupider than the typical bigoted Tory.
  15. ...and I think I can have a good guess what the reaction would have been had it been Juncker saying that UK Citizens should lose the rights they currently hold by living in an EU member country. I imagine Awol would be backing him to the hilt and saying that any other scenario would be racist.
