    So Gina Miller wants us to vote tactically to stop the Brexit Party from gaining loads of MEPs - there's even a new web site advising how to do this:

    That's not a very good site and only suggests the Lib dems as a voting option.

    www.remainvoter.com seems to be a bit more legit for the same thing?

    Certainly not getting my vote this time around. Would reassess if it were an election as we are in such a marginal seat but I'm pissed off with his fence setting.

    Labour and the Tories should be eviscerated in the euros. A complete lack of clear direction, yet still nuance-free.

    Interesting looking documentary following the EUís brexit negotiators tonight on bbc4.
    Found this on Youtube, absolutely fascinating viewing. Hope someone uploads the second part as well as I don't have access to iPlayer.

    Probably quite a sobering watch if you're British though.

    This is a good read if you can stomach it. It's pretty fucking depressing.

    @KnuttinAtoll

    Yeah, for the average, moderately intelligent, Brit, being perpetually inebriated is the only sane way to get through this shitshow.

    Not sure if that's what you meant by sobering, though.

    @AboutHalfaStevas Heh not quite (although you're probably right). More the realisation what kind of incompetent, ignorant, useless, hypercunt-grade bunch of politicians you're represented by.

    There were two particular scenes where I thought, boy what a bunch of utter wankers they are (visiting Brexiteer MPs discussing the Irish border with the EU team, and May allegedly saying "too bad for EU citizens" while conveying no deal back in 2017. What a fucking bitch.)

    This is the thing. I have as low an opinion of our "political class" as it's possible to go. Believe me.

    And high blood pressure.

    And yet, I'll still stupidly watch this, it'll still manage to even surprise me, and the next day I'll say "huh. BP is a bit higher than usual?"

    I'd say thanks for the heads up about the show, but, you know... It might actually kill me?

    Maybe read this first and see how it goes:

    But apart from UK politics bashing I found the fly on the wall stuff between EU officials also very interesting to watch and listen to.

    The move comes just two weeks after British Steel secured a £100m loan from the government to pay its EU carbon bill.
    uh oh, you know how the gammons are gonna play this one out.

    You do, at the same time thisíll be ignored:

    ďThe firm has been hit by a European Union decision to suspend UK firms' access to free carbon permits until a Brexit withdrawal deal is ratified.Ē

    Yeah, but his life expectancy was about 35 years and thy hadn't invented the flushing toilet so it's all relative.

    When we're out of the EU we can finally get rid of those namby pamby "eco toilets" that only use a couple of litres and barely get your floaters of fecalised kebab meat down through the u-bend. We can have glorious bogs that use 43 gallons per flush just like Jesus intended.

    FFS. Reports coming in that Labour will abstain from the fourth vote on May's withdrawal bill. They could of course vote against it, killing it off and probably May with it, but that would actually involve acting like an opposition.

    It's eventually going to get through when it's literally only her voting on it, isn't it.
