    Hmmm now about those select committees any sign of them restarting yet ?

    The repurposing of a whole country seemingly overnight. It’s almost Communist in its reach but attempting to do it in a democratic country/manner. Something is going to break.

    It’s very odd,I think we are in strange times.

  • Or just buy a load of edgeless monitors and a multiplexor and you could have a whole wall of picture an save on the plastering 🙂

  • Use some funky mirrored glass in front of the telly so you’ve got a useful bedroom mirror that doubles as a telly when it’s switched on 🙂

    I do like his stuff as said he does do a brilliant bit of world building.

    Yep the fantasy trilogy is pretty good as well.

    I think there’s probably a bit of skill required to carry a sex scene off in sf,never seem to remember any good one’s but never forget comedy gold like a drone buying a hat as get well present for a head that was having his…[Read more]

    Surely the ultimate irony of all this is Home Secretary Priti Patel announcing a points-based immigration system that would have denied entry to the UK to her own parents?

    Nope just shows she another hypocrite happy to slam doors in other people’s faces as long she passed thru.

    whats not mentioned when tories get a raging semi about ‘australian points based immigration’ is that student loans in australia can be used for technical education, not just uni.

    They don’t really get a raging semi over it they just need something to get in the papers and on the news that makes their believers think happy Tory thoughts.

    And when you’re in Sleepy Meadows care home for the terminally bewildered, which one of those machines would you like to wipe your arse? 😉

    After meeting the minimum requirement retirement age of 95 and having your ‘Britanniac’ care plan fully paid up to the minimum 300,000 uk$ of course.

    Fantasies of karmic retribution for those who engineered all of this are just that. Fantasies.

    No fantasies here for retribution,they loved Thatcher but soon put the knife in when they thought they’d lose an election with her.

    Dya think the shit will hit the fan/barn door/face before we leave at the end of the year or at some point in the next 9 months?, for some reason September is raising my spidey sense hackles, i hope it crumbles around them and come the new year we will march en-mass into Westminster and reclaim the parliament.

    Yeah i know there is zero chance…

    As I’ve been boring on about for four years now, ending FoM is an attack on the freedoms of working class people

    I agree with this as well.

    I’m sure I know someone who voted leave then retired in Spain very happy to vote for its removal but take advantage of it 🙁

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    In or out of the EU it’s always the EU’s fault 🙂

    Anyway there’s no such thing as no deal it’s ’Australian Style deal’,they’re way ahead of you all and have already starting preparing,mobile concrete barriers and acknowledging the distinct lack of frictionless trade.

    Get in early and get the bad news out or rebrand.

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    I don’t think it’s going to be December, I’m sure there’s a mid year point when the eu decide the state of the negotiations around June then they want it ready near end of November.

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic Brexit 2020+ in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    Easiest planned no deal in history. And it will be lapped up by the electorate.

    Does look like this, The instant the EU are reneging from Johnson right after we left was a bit like Farage immediately disowning the bus.

    When you add in the awkward things like er Gibraltar and the Elgin marbles and the fishing stuff and the instant point blank…[Read more]

    I don’t think he’s leaving all together just moving behind the camera, a bit like Tom Last.

    Make sense, I suppose there’s only so much jetting off to look a someone’s bike you can do before it becomes a pita.

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic The folk over at GCN in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    I’ve thought so too, although it is the Global Cycling Network. Plus that Jeremy guy is quite likeable too

    They’ve got GCN en Español an Italia as well.

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic The folk over at GCN in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    GCN seems to be aiming more and more at the n. American audience. Not so keen on that content.

    Gravel haterz 🙂

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic The folk over at GCN in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    I didn’t realise that Cannings was leaving/had quit.

    Ahh I was being a smart arse, just seemed odd the way it was announced.

  • dudeofdoom replied to the topic The folk over at GCN in the forum Chat Forum 3 days ago

    Anyway if anyone wants his job there’s a competition for it 🙂
