Oh Britain, what have you done (part ∞+17)?

    Baron Mullet of Gammon made a fundamental business mistake- in aligning himself in an illiterate manner with a partisan political position that automatically alienated 50% of his potential customer base, his mouth cost his shareholders. They’ll put him out to pasture with a gagging clause quite quickly.

    BBC-
    “The high court in London has ruled that Twitter must reveal the identity behind parody accounts set up to mimic the pub chain Wetherspoons.
    The accounts had tens of thousands of followers between them.
    One tweet promised that anyone wearing a waistcoat in the pub during one of England's World Cup matches would get a free drink.”

    Priceless.

    A photo of Mark Everett aka E from Eels, plus the name of one of my favourite songs (by Low if you're interested). Is that really, really, really the best response you can come up with?

    I remember you, or particularly this post:
    From https://www.pinkfishmedia.net/forum...e-you-done-part-ii.189825/page-2#post-2878706
    Go ahead - do you still have the tommy gun in the attic?
    I couldn't quite remember who had posted it, you've rather scuttled away from the topic over the last couple of years... when at least some Leavers have actually bothered to engage in debate and put forward their perspective and reasons for voting leave. All of a sudden I salute eternumviti and Ragaman.
    Here are some other gems:

    https://www.pinkfishmedia.net/forum...hat-have-you-done.189703/page-22#post-2877652
    https://www.pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/oh-britain-what-have-you-done.189703/page-8#post-2877027
    and the best you can do in response is criticise an avatar... really?
    If you want to "take up arms" then perhaps try thinking first of articulating why you want to do so and put forward a bit of reasoning to support a viewpoint of voting to leave. Wouldn't want to see you shooting yourself in the other foot by accident.

    I was getting Amazement confused with Disbeliever but of course he’s only angrier about one thing than the EU and that’s Class D amplifiers.

    And whilst Disbeliever isn't exactly charming I'm quite happy to be termed a "Remaniac Traitor" by someone who also manages to stick "Good Queen Bess" in the same, brief, post.

    Odd take on proportion of a small fraction. Last time I looked ''twas both a significant fraction and proportion.

    Should have gone to Specsavers.

    SteveS1 I heard that, pardon?

    If you are as fed up with hearing sympathy for Treeza you might enjoy this from Matt Chorley in The Times.

    "People who feel sorry for Theresa May - as if she was in town one afternoon and got stopped by someone with a clipboard and accidentally signed up to be prime minister and now can’t cancel the direct debit. It’s not her fault she is surrounded by morons, but it is her fault that they outfox her on a daily basis."

    richgilb Lol....

    Although, we might disagree here...it's been a long gradual downward curve for E...and the last two albums have no magic at all. I started getting frustrated after Blinking Lights (6 great albums, but the first was the best). From Hombre Lobo, it got really patchy and each album kept getting worse. It's now like listening to the latest Smashing Pumpkins record, another favourite of mine that slid and slid. The ingredients are all there, but nothing great is there in terms of the sum of the parts.

    The nightmare scenario? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/239dbf2e-476f-11e9-924d-9729bcd51a7f

    The Brexitgraph report that May is finished and the Brexitgraph tends to know internal Tory stuff better than most. So there is a possibility that the price to pay for May getting her deal through is Prime Minister Boris.

    But my guess would be that May loses by a much smaller number of votes next week and she stays to try again with a fourth vote.
