    Why does Zaha look so glum?

    Tory Cabinet Thread

    It's like an inverse meritocracy. Motherfuckers just failing upwards all the time.

    Naby Keita

    Yeah he was really impressive last night, even taking into account the standard of opposition. Would be nice if his fitness issues are finally behind him.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    Sorry mate I don't understand. I agree it absolutely is being weaponised and exaggerated, but precisely for the reasons I've mentioned: it sells papers, wins votes, and detracts from bigger issues. If it hadn't hooked into the public consciousness the way it has, and on the scale it has, over the last few years, then dickheads in the media/Tory party wouldn't be pushing it, but it has, and so here we are.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    Apologies, I didn't notice your 'during a pandemic' caveat first time around, but I don't think it changes much about my answer, tbh. The media are still covering it, largely in an insightful and inflammatory way, because it sells, and the Tories are still pushing it because they know there's political capital to be had (also quite a useful diversionary tactic if you've handled a health crisis so badly the rest of the world is looking at you with their chins on the floor).

    It's curious that people have a raging hard on for this kind of thing?

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    It's not really curious, though, is it? Winding people up about this kind of thing is incredibly good for business if you're a member of the Tory party and/or right wing press. It's no different from other such wonderful culture war issues as radical Islam, or, perhaps, more pertinently, gay rights. Sir Forensic Haircut is absolutely spot on when he says in 15-20 years time people will look back on this period and think the way it was covered was mad, but in the meantime it's still a really good way to win votes and secure book deals etc, so the furious pant pissing will rage on.
  8. His stats in the league this season are absolute filth: 30 games, 19 goals, 9 assists.

    I wonder if there's any other explanation besides "people are shit" for this phenomenon of a near constant 40% of the electorate believing the Tory party are the best choice to govern our country, despite bucket fulls of evidence to the contrary, including currently being top of the pops in the death charts during a global pandemic? Probably not worth exploring any further, of course, but sometimes I do wonder.

    True, but even in tighter moments he's looked good.

    Keita looking class, here. Hopefully he can stay fit next season.

    Jodie Comer

    It certainly hasn't for people who were used to airing their views completely unchallenged, and that's what a lot of this silliness boils down to.

    Without wanting to go too Daily Mail comments section, 200 hrs community service seems like quite a good result for Tom.

    Saudi Arabia

    Johnson was ready to sign off on an actual fucking deployment last year, so just resuming the sale of Tornados really isn't a big surprise. Again, another great example of the utter vacuity that was the constant both-sideism from complete fucking frauds in the media before the last general election.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Really glad this is happening at the end of the year.

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    Yes. The SNP will spend the next 4 years saying "we demand another referendum", and the Tories will spend the next 4 years telling them to fuck off because they "value the Union", and in the meantime neither party will have done anything to address the material concerns of people in either country, because why would they if they can rely on flag fucking for votes? And even if/when there eventually is another ref that the SNP win, breaking up will be a messy, drawn out affair that costs eye-watering amounts, benefits nobody, and inflames all the worst attitudes we see in society today. It's an utter, utter waste of time. At the very best it'll take 10-15 years and Scots will have to pay through the arse afterwards with a nice healthy dose of austerity because the party who delivered it don't really give a shit about doing social democracy, but are savvy enough to realise that pretending they do is good for business.

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    Flag humping of any sort is a complete waste of time for developed western countries.

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    Nationalism's fucking great, isn't it? Just consistently producing the best outcomes for societies all over the western world, and really getting to grips with the most pressing issues of our time.

    Pubs Re-Opening

    That's depressing on so many levels.

    Pubs Re-Opening

    Looks like a normal Saturday night near me. I'll be amazed if this doesn't lead to a rise in infections.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Having a negative opinion of Carling is an attack on the working class, apparently. Just incomprehensibly fucking stupid.
