Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Remember how everyone thought May would be a great Prime Minister? No, I don't know anyone who thought she'd be any good at all. Not after her stint as Home Secretary with the passport delays and "Immigrants Go Home" billboards. She was just less terrible than Leadsom, who is a straight out moron, ...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Why? Serious question; I'm curious to know as I had a feeling I disliked her for something, but looking at her record (and that Hansard like official record - Wikipedia) I can't see what it was that Thornberry did which annoyed me; certainly not the white van and flag incident.

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Edit: In response to Snowy: Yeah, I think you're right that Corbyn just likes shouting from the sidelines. I do actually agree with a lot of what he says (certainly more than I do with almost any other UK politician) but he doesn't want to lead and I don't think he'd be very good as PM. Keir Starmer...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

It’s funny that everyone seems to say Corbyn wants Brexit when in fact he voted Remain. He may have no great love for the EU, but the line that he’s pro-Brexit is yet another falsehood on the heap. He has been pretty clear that he would "see Brexit thorough", apparently by getting a better deal, wh...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Corbyn, despite saying for months if not years that he would see through Brexit, has dodged the question multiple times in the last few days. This gives me some glimmer of hope that Labour MPs have finally got through to him that if a general election is called and he doesn't back Remain, then all t...

Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

My monitor is over three years old now, so it was pretty awesome when I got it but yeah, a higher refresh rate would be nice. Still, it was fucking expensive so I'm not changing it any time soon. ¬_¬

Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

Yeah, after that cluster fuck I basically won't use any company that delivers with DPD. They are astonishingly crap around here.

Sounds like you got a good deal on your CPU then! I'm not sure the 9600k was even out yet when I bought all this about a year ago.

Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

Also, I built a PC for the first time just after Christmas. When I find the photos I'll post them. These recent posts have reminded me of this, so here it is: Basically it was the tower and everything in it that was new (with the exception of two hard drives I kept). http://i63.tinypic.com/2lbnzvo....

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

I think we'd probably end up with a hung parliament if there was an election. The thing is, he's mad if he thinks that Labour stand a chance of winning a majority within the next two months and that we even have the time to go through such a process. I'm not sure that we even have time for a second...

A few educated guesses, but I'm pretty happy with that 9/10 today.

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

I think I've got through most of the endings/dead ends now and the two "good" endings (for the character) were quite touching I thought. I do quite like it, and think it did very well to make the branching system work in a medium that really isn't used to it. I can imagine it going terribly wrong an...

I've spent quite a bit of time on Parkitect. Nothing much else to be honest.
