  • Commented on The Day After
    But isn't the UK one of those terrorist infested muslim countries? I doubt Trump will make it easier to enter the US from the UK....
  • Commented on The Day After
    Well, imagine the Catholic/Lutheran schism is 1000 years past and now Islamic forces are Bombing cities all over Europe. You still think Catholics and protestants would form a (temporary) military Alliance? Right now Shiite forces are fighting Da'esh, even if...
  • Commented on The Day After
    China on the other hand .... This could be a problem. Or Iran. Imagine Trump and Netanyau bombing the hell out of Iran and Iran responding with forming an alliance with ISIS and bombing the hell out of the west....
  • Commented on The Day After
    g) Raising tariffs on international trade (probably self-defying, but he might try) h) Bring the Fed in government control and print money...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    I think his chance as prime minister vanished when he became Foreign Secretary under May. Now Brexit is either an success and May will rule for 20 years (haha, just kidding) or this government will be so burned over Brexit...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Do you know why? I'm also not sure if it's a wise decision. And the last sentence from the letter sounds a little as if they've signed the OSA....
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Bye bye RT: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/17/russia-todays-uk-bank-accounts-frozen-says-editor...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    The problem with Syria is that there are no good options. You can't negotiate with IS. AlNusra is closer to IS than to the West. So Russia is correct in first fighting IS/AlNusra and look for a political solution later....
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Talking about terrorists, look who's coming for a visit: home secretary urged to prevent new-nazi band to enter uk. The concert is supposed to take place in Edinburgh. I hope the police is checking everyone for weapons. Didn't someone say...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Quite. Another upside of an economic crash is that it makes it easier to comply with CO2 reduction. The downside of course is, even if the people get less immigration, they are unlike to reward the ruling party at the...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Labour's policy is a) respect the referendum b) ensure access to single market for products and services c) make state interventions possible If the economy starts tanking, I think it's possible they will support stopping Brexit. Of course, in that...
  • Commented on Suspense is the key
    But is suspense the same thing as not knowing how the story continues? I think not. At least I catch myself during re-reads hoping for someone doing something helpful even if I know that they won't. So here's my alternate...
  • Commented on Suspense is the key
    I think the master is Arundhati Roy with her book "The God of Small Things". She manages to keep that IMR feeling from first page to last page. Or, as one review on the cover says: "Roy peels away the...
  • Commented on Sometimes I don't know why I bother!
    Antonio Gramsci, who did more for political science while in a Fascist prison than Lenin and Engels did running wild....
  • Commented on Writer, Interrupted
    I thought of "Meat fucker"....
  • Commented on The iron law of development
    Well, what if there is an infinite but fixed number of parallel universes? That would account for the wave-like phenomena but wouldn't posit an inflationary number of universes or break energy conservation. AFAIK all QM transformations are unitary, so that...
  • Commented on Administrative note
    Great! Someone mentioned a "substantial new blog essay"? :-)...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    OT: It appears that your feline overlords are taking a more visible role in running your country. Has Menhit shown any ambitions to move into Holyrood yet?...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Sure. Before or after the Space Opera? :-)...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Not your usual steampunk paranormal romance so much as gritty, almost noir-ish crime thrillers set in the underbelly of the resulting world. To say more would risk spoilering it: highly recommended. Bought. Currently I read the Guardian's installments of "House...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    "Quod licet Jorris non licet Boris"? Who the fuck is Jorris and why does he get away with even more than BoJo?...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    I'd say nearly impossible to stage such a couple a false flag operation domestically in these times. It might be possible to let an existing coup run its course instead of stamping it down early, maybe use agents provocateur to...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    Well, for one, without it most Europeans would have to relocate to Northern Africa....
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    David Bowie was reborn as a Koala bear....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    That reminds me, what is Theresa May's stance on transhumanism?...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Now this is fun: T.May applying ruthlessly the rule "you broke it, you own it" for her cabinet reshuffle. Here are the new pro-Brexit members so far: Boris Johnson, FCO: sell Brexit to the rest of the world David Davis,...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    If he visits Rio for the Olympics and then tours North Africa he'd have a good chance of filling the last white patches on the map....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The independent has a nice map for Johnson's orientation....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Meanwhile, Angela Eagle & Co actually have to win an election against Corbyn in order to succeed him in Labour leadership, consider the ignominy! So, can anyone tell me any reason why Eagle would be a better leader, except for...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    She could also hire Yannis Varoufakis......
