    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    It's going to go through, I reckon. The noises from the likes of Junker, Varadkar and Macron suggest that they've had enough now and want closure. And, therefore, there's a strong chance that they may veto any extension request.

    I think that the decision to have the vote on Johnson's deal tomorrow is bordering on undemocratic. We're a parliamentary democracy. Parliament are elected to make decisions on our behalf. Informed decisions. They've had nowhere near sufficient enough time to give the deal full scrutiny. They aren't going to have sight of impact assessments re: this new deal. Tomorrow's vote isn't really one of voting based on the merits and implications of the deal. It's a vote tinged by fear. Of voting for the deal to potentially avoid a no deal Brexit. The MPs need to hold their nerve.

    Some of the #FBPE crew are unbearable. And I say that even as a remainer. They're convinced that Corbyn will miss tomorrow's debate and vote because he has an evening event in Liverpool. Of course he'll vote. Haven't these people heard of trains and cars?

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Absolutely woeful interview from Ellman on Granada Reports. No substance to her allegations. She was asked to expand on her assertion that a Jeremy Corbyn led government would represent a danger to the Jewish people of the country. The interviewer asked her to expand on her claim, asking her what would specifically happen if and when Corbyn became PM so as to put Jewish people on danger. She offered nothing to back up this untrue claim, but instead pointed to history and mentioned the attitude towards Jewish people in the past could build into something bigger. She was pretty much suggesting that Labour under Corbyn was similar to the situation that Jewish people faced in the years preceding the Holocaust. Absolutely disgusting.

    It's curry. As in "curry, rice and chips." "Curry sauce" is a term used by wools who also order a "chip bap" and then get an "ice lolly" for afters. The other food stuff is "a curry" the choice of which is then clarified by stating a particular variation such as a Rogan Josh, Bhuna, Dopiaza or a Korma (which is probably the choice of people who refer to the chippy stuff as "curry sauce").

    The start of Junker's address doesn't sound good, talking of no need for prolongation. Are the EU going to say it's this deal or no deal?

    Official statement now issued from the DUP confirming that they can't support Johnson's new deal.

    Ellman has jumped before she was pushed. Another cowardly shitehawk elected on the back of Labour who won't call for a by-election.

    The CBI appear to have costed some random thing they'd pulled out of their arses when reaching their £200bn prediction, rather than costing Labour's actual proposed policy. They've admitted to this now. But, the incorrect £200bn figure is what will remain in people's heads.

    Joker - Movie

    On the subject of influences, I was getting strong hints of Mr. Robot.

    Joker - Movie

    Just got back from a matinee screening of this. Firstly, I went to the Other Everyman to see it. A tiny bit pricy, but a good set up with armchairs and sofas. There was me and 3 others at the screening, so it was a pick your own seat scenario. Nice and quiet too. Now for the film. It's dark. And quite depressing in parts. Without straying into spoilers. There's a few bits you can work out before the "reveal" in the film. But, they add clarity to the ending scenes, for me. As for all the incel stuff, not for me. The character has mental health problems. He's a fantasist. He fantasises about pretty much everything. His private life, his family life, his belief in his charm and funny personality, his ambitions of being a stand up comic. The transformation from Arthur Fleck is the long formed end result of him building up everything and then lashing out against it. It's not just because the girl hasn't noticed him. I wasn't too keen on the bits involving a young Bruce Wayne. They seemed a bit unnecessary to the overall plot of this particular film. One last point. I though Heath Ledger was superb as The Joker. But, I think Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal might actually be better. I thought he was superb in it. It takes a lot for a film to get full marks from me. And, this won't. But, it's very good. A solid 4.2/5.
