  1. yes, but crucially you would think 12 months is long enough to cover the immediate issues of either deal or no deal etc. They can't get in at this point.
  2. I suppose May staying in power for a guaranteed 12 months does have the benefit of keeping the nutters quiet, and anything that prevents Boris, Gove or JRM taking the hot seat has to be a good thing. Small, Pyrrhic victories is what we''re hoping for. Marvellous.

    Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    Received this a few minutes ago, suppose he can't be faulted for not planning ahead. Tempting to propose a new date for 2032 instead.
  4. yeah, the idea of mcvey, boris, raab, davis, mogg etc in charge is vomit inducing. But then again, seeing one of those gutless feckers realise they can't deliver their nonsense would be amusing

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    1997 and the N64 was awesome - goldeneye and banjo kazooie! Think 1991/2 or was the first one for us, when I got the Sega Master System II with Alex Kidd in Miracle World built in, and Sonic with it. Good times.

    Movies of the Year 2018

    Yeah, it's odd, the Oscar nom films always feel like they're last year films because they've had their awards, but they were right at the beginning of the year. I may be cheating with Molly's Game as I think it came out on New Years Eve 2017, but screw it.

    Movies of the Year 2018

    I've really enjoyed his films lately I have to be honest. Edge of Tomorrow of a couple of years ago was another recent bit of fun that was well done. I know he's got the whole wackjob scientology thing, but film wise, I can't deny he's made some thoroughly entertaining films of late. I also saw A Few Good Men for the first time this year too - he was good in that too

    Movies of the Year 2018

    I've seen plenty of films, in general catching up on my old DVD list so have enjoyed some classics for the first time, but scanning my cinema trips indicates a seeing plenty of really good films, but not much that was breathtaking. Though for cinematic experience I'm putting First Man and seeing 2001: A Spacey Odyssey when it was re-released for the 50th anniversary at the top of the list. They were superb, whilst Leave No Trace is just astoundingly beautiful and moving. Most of them are biggish / mainstream hit films but here's my list anyway. As much as I actually enjoyed Mamma Mia 2 more than I expected, it's not making the cut! ;). Edit: forgot A Quiet Place - that was excellent, though my cinematic experience of that was ruined somewhat by some chavvy teenagers laughing loudly throughout. rocket polishers.

    Pre-match thread

    confident in general direction under dean smith, but as ever I am nervous and anticipating defeat in the immediate hours before the match. Weve come through some good tests so far, so every reason to be positive. Perhaps it's the fact we still NEED to pick up the wins rather than the draws to haul ourselves back into the fight for the top 2. Either way way, should feel positive, confidence and momentum and a bit of extra energy in the legs, here's hoping we nick it. I suppose I must have some confidence as I've actually bet on Jack to score first and a villa win*. It's been years since I've done that, usually I've gone for the consolation mini bet in case of us losing. *ergo - apologies for when we now lose

    Blue Ruin was a superb film so I'll definitely check this one out

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I'm beginning to wonder about my favourite shirt. It's about 14 years old and it is no where near as warm as it used to be. I refuse to give it up until I can find a replacement I feel just as comfortable with that also looks exactly the same. I've had several near misses, but none of them have felt right, too itchy, too snug, too ill fitting etc. I keep burning toast because I haven;t gotten round to buying a toaster yet as the one I did buy packed up straight away, and sheer inertia and cheapness has had me using the grill. Fire alarm has gone off 4/5 times in the past month. Think I may have to break the bank and spend £15 quid this xmas
  13. I've wanted PR for years. FPTP is complete doggy doo. As is most of our electoral system in general. Vote for local reps and have a presidential election for the leader - lord knows the media have dictated it as such for decades anyway, assuming your vote is a comment on the leader, instead of the myriad of reasons why people choose to vote

    Nothing wrong with variety in linguistic expression, there's many ways to skin a cat after all.
