  1. Europe --- In or Out

    Imagine you take a job offer paying £50k p.a. having previously earned £19k p.a., but your company only pays you £31k because it turns out the offer included the £19k you no longer receive for your previous... no, it's no good, my heart's not in it

    If Johnson promotes Rishi to Chancellor and appoints a replacement as Chief Secretary to the Treasury, what's the net increase in the size of the Cabinet?
  3. Europe --- In or Out

  4. Europe --- In or Out

    If it helps, I still think you're wrong about almost everything else.
  5. Europe --- In or Out

    The claim is both mathematically justifiable and obvious political grandstanding. The two are not mutually exclusive. (Fucking Lib Dems always sitting on the fence etc.)
  6. Music Newcastle have run out to

    There was a couple of years where they played this pre-match a lot.

  8. Europe --- In or Out

    Good to see all this Project Fear stuff turning out to be... oh, right, reality. https://amp.theguardian.com/politics/2020/feb/10/checks-on-eu-bound-goods-inevitable-gove-tells-business-leaders Cracking.

    Is that a question or a statement?

    New album imminent. Bring it.

    Not bad. I'm always surprised at just how collectible some things are... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-1972-EUROVISION-SONG-CONTEST-PROGRAMME-EDINBURGH-USHER-HALL-NEW-SEEKERS/293451734519?hash=item4453161df7:g:JBoAAOSw~8leMv32

    Metre for metre, if you scale up from the Garden Bridge you're talking £5bn. But I reckon that's a conservative estimate (no pun intended). The Garden Bridge did have a few trees to price in, of course, whereas the Scotland-NI plan... oh.

    I've no idea if that's true, but he's a proper cathword so I choose to believe it.

    I'm not a parent and don't especially want to be, so if I'm struggling to find the words to express how I feel about people who play with kids' lives like this, god knows how those of you with kids of your own feel. It's beyond sickening.

  20. Precedent Trump

    I don't have any particular preference at all and I don't understand why you assume I would, nor do I know to whom you're obliquely referring in most of the above. It's just fairly obvious that the middle ground is where this election will be won, given the many inherent weaknesses of the US system. If you're willing to alienate the swing-state soccer moms right from the get-go, you deserve to lose.

    Incidentally, we're all cool with Boris's dad being our diplomatic representative in the coronavirus crisis, yes?
  22. Precedent Trump

    "They" being America's centrists. Let's hope for a candidate who actually appeals to them.
