  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    As I understand it official Labour policy is a second referendum after renegotiating with the EU, offering a choice between Remain and their deal. Though I am not a fan of Corbyn, that doesn't seem to be the sticking point....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Half the matrix display boards on UK motorways are currently showing a message which says "Shipping to/from EU, Paperwork may change, Check online" Which, of course, you can't because nobody knows what the requirements will be until the deal is...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    In short, Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable. He has the peak support he will ever gain, and most of it sits within the Labour membership. So he can't be shifted in favour of a more palatable leader, but he can't gain...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    In general I think, compared to the mass market, the commentariat skews in a direction that prefers flexibility and control, and is willing to learn more/sacrifice ease-of-use in order to get it. When Slack came out I heard a lot...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    You've mentioned previously that the Rule 34 sequel had to be canned as a result of reality catching up to the premise. I know you'd rather keep the plot to your chest for potential recycling, but can you give a...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Has anyone ever assessed the labour conditions at Wayne Industries? Are they paying more than minimum wage, permitting unionisation, observing health and safety standards, etc? After all if we accept that there is no such thing as a morally-unencumbered billionaire...
  • Commented on Story time!
    By the way, there's no need to worry that this pro-remain iteration of The Riddler might cause a moral tangle for Batman. Bruce Wayne is, after all, a billionaire....
  • Commented on Story time!
    Gerald Williamson was a nice, well-behaved boy from a nice middle-middle-class family in nice High Wycombe. For the first couple of years of his secondary schooling, he went to one of the pleasant, sightly crumbling, public schools in the area...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    NB the UK Kindle edition renders 109 as 109 on the iOS Kindle app as well. Kindle 6.12.1/iOS 12.1...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    UK Kindle edition, Loc 1892, "in excess of 109 human sacrifices" renders as "...109 human sacrifices" on my Kindle Paperwhite....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    That, as you realise, is the EXACT self-deluding crap the Brexiteers have been peddling all along. Sometimes the best satire is simply to repeat what's been said....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    A further suggestion, based on the suggestion by some of the more senior Brexiteers that we should look to the Age of the British Empire, because that was great fun and larks for all involved with no drawbacks. Rather than...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    On further consideration, it appears the sticking point is not the availability of prime human tissue but the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Despite neither of these countries being England, and therefore important, apparently some people...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Well, let's look at the stated aims of the Leave campaign. - Take back control - Sovereignty, which is fortunately a very easy concept that everyone understands innately - Secede from the ECHR - More money for the NHS -...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    "Vital pubic resource" is an actual, real typo. Whoops....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Too the extent that chaos ensued, I'm not sure that was an unintended consequence, at least from Schiller's faction. The politicians likely didn't even consider consequences other than how how it was going to affect their future prospects for graft....
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Yeah, my Mum has to take her glasses off to get it to recognise her (she's a no to contact lenses when flying) and then can't read the instructions, so can't tell if it's been accepted or not... My favourite...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    I picked up on the Tzompantli reference, and I did wonder exactly where those are supposed to be coming from. SO looking forward to this book!...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    To date I have not found Mhari a likeable character at all Most of our exposure to Mhari has been written from the viewpoint of people without much goodwill towards her. I imagine OGH will be taking this opportunity to...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    There is no Brexit referendum in the Mandate's universe. I was wondering how he's getting away with capital punishment within the EU, but I assumed he just letting the outrage pile up in Brussels for now....
  • Commented on Holding Pattern
    What kind of ammunition would that be? Chekhovite ;)...
  • Commented on New Book Week!
    Guess who flew out of Tempelhof just over two weeks ago if you flew out of THF any time since 2008, then I submit that it's you that's in an alternate timeline ;) I'm guessing you meant Tegel (and my...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Stay awesome, Charlie. Devote some time to self-care and don't believe what the black dog tells you....
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    There's a whole fire-crying class problem whenever transport in London is under discussion. Taxi drivers are independent businesspeople whose livelihood relies on a system optimised for London's current conditions (near-gridlock, congestion charge and parking fees make it painful to use...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    How far does the "crying fire" analogy go? You could stretch it to include Icke, Scientology and so on. Would it be wise to draw a boundary around it for the purposes of the first 300 comments?...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    Theoretically, if one were to own a national paper one could inflate or invent all sorts of woes, then blame them on external factors in the name of swinging the Overton window in a direction that just happens to be...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    I remain perplexed by Alex's prefatory apology to Cassie: Which Cassie is he apologizing to, and for what? It hasn't become clear to me in three readings. My guess... Alex is a white, middle-class, taxpaying professional male. When he persuaded...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Hi Charlie, I loved this one (I also once lived near Leeds and got great gratification from the climax). This may be my own failing, but I struggled to understand some of The DM's responses. I read it as though...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    I have real fun with longer ebooks and the sense of duration. Idea: A virus which infects ebook readers and subtly Markov chains progressively more extra sentences into the narrative, resulting in a book of infinite length without the reader...
  • Commented on The internet of decay
    I can see some sort of friendly Citizens United-style legislation coming along saying that because so much of the amazing future relies on the mass interpretation of behavioural data, it's no longer a legal right to opt out of data...
