@dashie I did not expect to be watching a ten-minute video on a steampunk vibraphone today so props. - The chap's got an infectious manner.
@Cyborgneticz I'm going to be thinking about that for some time - been listening to the first volume of Caro's biography - it's amazing.
It's not his to lose exactly - it's far too complicated for that right now - but still, Boris could mangle the campaign in such a way that May's attempt to regain the upper hand could look well-managed https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/nov/13/uk-flooding-army-help-recovery-effort-more-rain-forecast

@fitheach To be fair I had to look it up, but had it from the guy who does the magazine that he's a brummie but found success elsewhere. The following apparently, so not the full Ozzie Ozzbourne: "Skinner was born in Barnet, but moved to Birmingham aged 5. He grew up in West Heath, Birmingham"
@fitheach I have an odd relationship to this as I first heard it in Prague. I was in Birmingham a few months back, picked up a local mag with Mike Skinner in and realised I didn't know he was a brummie.
What liberals are having an issue understanding is that by walling ourselves off and droning the world when resources are becoming scarce we have set ourselves up for one of two outcomes. There will either have to be a redistribution of all of the ill-gotten gains to the needy on a scale never-before-seen promoting a new age of global cooperation and mutual aid, or there will be a mass genocide of the third world. The Nazis understand this and are acting accordingly. #anarchism #socialism
