    So In the midst of all the cuts in education more money goes to religious cult schools?

    I really do despair for this country. How the fuck are these schools even permitted let alone funded when they are the antithesis of a multicultural country?

    Oh yeah, Brexit. Fuck integration.

    Fucking hell. To have said this out loud is a shocking display of political and diplomatic incompetence.

    May, negotiating.

    Smile. Try thinking about something you like, such as rescinding a housing benefit application. That's better.

    Hilarious and disheartening at the same. If the elected need lessons on how to relate to the electorate then the system has failed. But that's nothing I didn't know already.

    Will it win more voters over, though? For either side.

    Brexit: UK government to host summit on why other countries should join the EU

    Makes just about as much sense as anything else that's happened this year.

    The British government will host a summit encouraging six European countries to join the EU for the sake of their “security, stability and prosperity”,
    Fuck me.

    It's a bit dotty from the UK, but what hasn't been lately. You can see why it would appeal to the EU though. A summit could talk about how great it is to be in the EU, but why not have the delegates experience at first hand what the alternative is:

    See here Zvonomir. This country joined Europe in the 70s when they had regular power shortages and strikes, productivity was at an all-time low, there was a Government enforced three-day week because there was no money to pay wages and citizens in one whole section of the country were murdering each other in a civil war.

    Move forward 40 years, and the country is richer than it has ever been, as close to full employment as it has ever been, and peace and prosperity reigns in Northern Ireland. There are still massive inequalities in the society, which unfortunately the ruling class have failed to address. But still, working in concert with the EU, many of the poorer regions have benefitted from regeneration projects. It's a work in progress of course, but one that we were hopeful could progress to a happy, just and fair society.

    We can only look from afar now with sadness. Please, come and read their newspapers and watch their TV news. But most of all, go for a walk and speak to some of the natives. The country and its leaders, all in turmoil -- and they haven't even left yet.

    Might as well sign up now, eh?

    That's summit thing is a joke, right? Fake news that accidentally got picked up wrongly by newspapers. I'll fact check this one myself as that's just too ridiculous.

    Wow. Berlin Process Official Site - Preparations for London Summit

    To be fair, from that site it's pretty clear this has been planned since 2014, but you'd think someone would say "maybe now they're leaving we should probably move the location for that one"?
