Britpol / Antisemitism
Increasingly likely I'll instruct my day (as my proxy) to spoil the ballot. There is no morally acceptable choice in this election in my constituency. Greens, mneh, maybe, but they'll get a fraction of one per cent and they're barely meaningfully as a protest vote by now..

UK voting registration deadline is 11:59 pm on Tuesday 26th of November, that's tomorrow! Statistically it's unlikely you'll ever be able to knee Boris Johnson in the balls so don't miss out, & don't let your pals miss out, on the next best thing!

And there it is...
No action, just a promise to act in the future.
Twitter said in a statement that it had rules in place to prohibit misleading behaviour.
“Any further attempts to mislead people by editing verified profile information - in a manner seen during the UK Election Debate - will result in decisive corrective action,”
#Loomio 2.0 has been released! The UI has been majorly revamped and some of the underlying tech has been swapped out, meaning that the performance of the site will be better, especially on older devices:

The Guardian says much more about what's going on in the world when you read it with a focus on the cultural sections. It is also much more fun: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/nov/19/no-bra-female-sexuality-wolfgang-tillmans-susanne-oberbeck
Clive James' diary in the London Review of Books, 10th January, 1983 https://www.lrb.co.uk/v05/n01/clive-james/diary The references are hard to grasp even for someone born in the UK in 1978 but it's wild to reflect on a handful of them

I understand people taking a pop at Corbyn - he's not what I want as a Labour leader - but let's remember why he got elected. Here's a list of Labour MPs who did not vote against a Tory welfare bill which abolished legally-binding child poverty targets. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/these-are-the-184-labour-mps-who-didn-t-vote-against-the-tories-welfare-bill-10404831.html
