Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Don't be silly, it's just teething problems. All the amazing benefits are just around that next corner you can see in the distance if you squint really hard. No, not that one, a bit further on. Maybe the one after that. Ahh, brexit fanatics crack me up :lol: Fanatics is the word alright. It's also ...

Neither Hull nor the league come out of this looking particularly great. I don't know which deserves the greater criticism.

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I'm not sure many people hear that narrative..... Well, perhaps remind yourself how the generations that voted in 1975 then voted in 2016. Just shows that people change their mind; perhaps we should have yet another vote on the topic to see what the mood is now, eh? Sure, 2057 seems an apt date.

So when was the last time we won 5 without conceding?

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

It's this magic thing called "compromise". They believe stronger measures should be in place, so voting against some measures being put in place would be cutting off one's own nose.... It's not a difficult concept.... Well, it seems to be a tricksy concept for you, as in a "compromis...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

As for "the opposition", it isn't their job to immediately oppose the government on principle. If you notice, they aren't agreeing on everything, they would go far further if they were in government. So really not the same thing. I don't particularly agree with their viewpoint either. I c...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

The fucking stupid thing was joining in the first place without getting public consent. Actually a pretty good example of the mess that can be created when both major parties collude to take democracy off the table. You mean getting public consent like in the 1975 referendum? The really crazy thing...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Sounds a good argument, until you remember it was "the privileged" who decided we were going to join the EU in the first place, and held off going to the public for so long. Whilst democracy isn't perfect, it does allow you your own little corner of stupidity, if you want it. Losing that w...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Why, do you have a problem with allowing people to vote? Or just votes that don't go the way you want them? I know you don't like how the actual referendum turned out, so I assume you're not trying to argue the timing was perfect.

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

:shrug: Regardless of what you think the outcome should have been, surely we can agree waiting 25 years to ask a question that had always more-or-less split the country down the middle created a polarisation and division that was totally unnecessary. Had Major or Blair had any scruples, they'd have ...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Whilst I agree it's hardly random for a politician to not know what they're on about, the joke is on us if we're just to expect and accept it? We've got a government that impose silly illogical rules that they then don't follow themselves, and an opposition that claim the PM isn't fit to lead but th...

And just like that, automatic promotion doesn't look like such a crazy idea.
