I agree with most of your points. I've yet to see any evidence that the EU can be reformed, otherwise I'd take that tactic myself, too. But the 'can-it/can't-it? question is something that could be argued back and forth to eternity.

I think where I disagree with the article is the faith it's writer still has in Corbyn being able to reconnect Labour with its traditional base, especially in the North. I think it's lost that, and it would be better off simply concentrating on its newer, younger, and growing, more metropolitan progressive wing that the Tory's will never win over. I know that wing has a fondness for Corbyn but I just don't see him as their man, compared with someone like Keir Starmer, who I see being Labour leader sooner rather than later.

ah, yeah, i sort of missed that argument due to lack of references. e.g. “hull’s depressed vote” (meaning...?)

but yeah, old-style labor is a thing of the past. nations need to pursue their comparative advantages, and embrace change, not resist and subsidize obsolete industries—like here, “coal”. lmao. garbage fuel nobody wants.

never heard that name before. but if he’s not a supporter of degenerate sandinismo/chavismo/castrismo, chances are i might like him

And the chancellor called for a snap election. This is fucking huge. For some time now it seemed like there's nothing this guy could say or do that could possibly hurt his career in anyway. And now it turns out he already fucked himself over spectacularly before he even got into office. His right hand was involved in the scandal as well and has also resigned. He'd been quite vile character who's been in the news for his awful remarks and sketchy propositions time and time again. Good fucking riddance.


https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/18/w...gns-video.html

And now, a little more than a week later, the wannabe Gordon Gekko chancellor followed suit after three parties had voted against him in a motion of no confidence. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz had drawn a lot of criticism for his more than compliant behavior towards the far right party FPOE. Under his patronage, the Austrian People's Party - which had formerly presented itself as a centrist party that was leaning a tad towards the conservative side (though there had been clear flirtations with the far right time and time again) - took a sharp right turn and cranked the whole "we're the party of the employers, not the workforce" appeal up to eleven. This marks the first time in the post-war second republic of Austria a chancellor, his cabinet as well as his coalition partners have been relieved of their duties. And quite some relief that is. Good fucking riddance²

the daily telegraph:

“Jeremy Corbyn faces mutiny as Labour grandees dare him to expel them after Alastair Campbell thrown out”

i am tempted to get a trial subscription so i can get a view from that side of things haaa haaaa haaa

i’m serious. i’m so used to the guardian and the one h8kurdt hates to hear about that the telegraph is like an alternative universe i need to explore...

know any free ones that could do the job instead?

otherwise it’s 30 days free then $3/week (not forever... only while the drama lasts... which ok perhaps will be forever lol)

The daily mail is the total opposite end of the guardian. As much as I hate most of the bilge the print I do check it everyday to see what they're banging on about. It may not be on the same level as Fox news for sensationalism it's up there for sure.

I'm certainly not gonna pay the stupid amount the Times and Telegraph are charging. Edit-Theb again there's a £2 a week option for the telegraph. That ain't so bad.

The Mail has a massive identity crisis. It can never reconcile its interest in big political issues with it's fascination with celebrity gossip and its slavish obsession with the royals. It's kind of the newspaper equivalent of breakfast TV.

Crikey! Are we to believe that a politician might've actually massaged the facts to suit their argument? I only hope Boris is the only one. Hate to think there might be a general culture of dishonesty within politics.

Yeah, that's probably the most curious piece of trivia in the whole debacle. My flatmate said he'll probably go to the gig. I'm obviously not a fan of them but it's nice to see that they found a new purpose for this novelty track. It's the perfect logical conclusion to times as absurd and chaotic as these. A late 90s novelty Eurodance act as the voice of a protest. Who'd have thunk and why the fuck not?

In other news: Brigitte Bierlein was just appointed as the interim-chancellor by president Van Der Bellen, making her the first ever female chancellor in the history of Austria . Which is cool. There are whispers and murmurs though that she is rather conservative and close to both parties that had just been ousted. Not so cool, if true. But to be taken with a grain of salt since she is technically an Independent. And she was selected by the president, who in opposition to the two formerly governing parties is decidedly left-leaning and does seem very level-headed. So she might just be neutral enough. Time will tell.

What about Shocking Blue, Golden Earring? It also really depends on what stuff you're into. Go to any goth party in Europe or beyond and those guys are absolutely huge.
This is incredibly off-topic though.
