  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    "And it appears that the only way to remove Corybn from the Labour leadership is to have the voters give Labour a lesson at the ballot box." One hopes, but (a) that doesn't necessarily happen and (b) the Tories +...

    "The streets of Paris have seen major advertising popping this week about where to go and what to do for British citizens working/studying here "Before Oct. 31st". Because nobody was sure there might be an extension deal coming." IMHO, if...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Charlie: "...until they're challenged by the exigencies of actually having to, er, do military stuff." I would rephrase it as 'war stuff'. Military stuff is garrison work and movement to/prep for war. It's much more orderly, and imposing a strict...

    "AIUI there has never been a successful impeachment (Tricky Dicky resigned first) so I can't think that there's a mechanism for quashing one. " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States#History_of_federal_constitutional_impeachment "The House has impeached 19 federal officers. Of these: 15 were federal judges: thirteen district...

    "I do think we have to give the writers credit for maintaining thematic consistency across 100's of seasons in regards to the British attitude to and treatment of Ireland and the Irish." I'm really hoping that this was all a...

    "Looking at the rolling Woke-SJW Auto-da-fé that is the Democratic nomination process I kind of think they haven't got this..." I'm trying to figure out where you are getting that impression from. The three front-runners are all US Senators; the...

    "This change is driven mostly by the transition in advanced (western) countries to an information technology economy, some by globalisation and has resulted in a strongly bifurcated labour class of winners and losers. " IIRC, in the USA support for...

    "I thought about mentioning Wales but then I thought no, no, surely not. Don't over-egg the custard." This will make it much easier to liberate England over the next decade. The Scottish Republican can move in from the North; EU...

    "The band of blue across Alabama, Georgia and S. Carolina is interesting, as is the band that goes up the Mississippi and terminates at, roughly, Memphis." This could be what is called the 'black belt', a zone of high concentration...

  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "There was a non-binding referendum that disenfranchised quite a few UK citizens who probably would have voted for one side, that is now being treated as a binding decision and mandate by supporters of the other side." In addition, the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "...if Brexit is followed by sanity, but that is looking increasingly unlikely." The right will always double down on evil, and from what I can tell the UK mass media is part of the crime network. And the right will...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "...He probably hopes to stand tall in a general election, win a 5 year majority, and hope the dust settles after the UK collapse." That's what I've been thinking, and explains why he wants an election Right Now: Get the...

    "vs. Corbyn or a left-dominated coalition on the other. " One obvious factor would be that Corbyn and the Labor Party won't have the tools that a Tory government would have. A Tory government has the mass media, army, police,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "PM Johnson is not stupid." My theory is that he wants an election before Brexit so that he can get a majority, and not be compelled to have one until 2024. Once Brexit happens, his Tory MP's won't dare call...

    "Space colonies have a couple of very advantageous traits, especially floating ones - availability of ever-present solar radiation and weightlessness. " First, 'ever-present solar radiation' is not solar power unless and until you have a vast amount of hardware to...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "But Corbyns hatred of the EU means Labour isn't taking advantage of that obvious opening to get into government." What gets me is - WTF is the matter with the Labour voters that they don't kick the current leadership to...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "The kinds of disaster I'm thinking of humanity escaping via mobile space colonies include, e.g., a nearby supernova, a forming black hole with an axis pointed at our solar system. Etc. " Those sound like full solar system disasters, so...

    "Which demands every last possible communication & piece of paper regarding brexit & hiw BOZO & his crooked pals have ahndled it ..." And on Crooked Timer a dishonest Brexiteer (but I repeat myself) compared that to Stasi. Yes, just...

    "Do y'all not understand what a hypothetical question is?" Yes, we do. Now, let's satisfy my totally off-topic whim and discuss how Brexit would be different if the Royal Dragon Corps existed....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    In the long run I imagine that it'll be considered part of a series of spasms resulting from the loss of the British Empire 50-70-years earlier....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "Thanks for paraphrasing the EU's opening position, which is great for the EU because it means the leaving nation is down the chute before negotiations start. But that's just 'their' interpretation to how A50 works. " I assumed that this...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "Sure they could, if they didn't mind a civil war breaking out in the province where we keep all our nuclear weapons." I have been thinking of that. Scotland has the Trident port - how can they leverage that?...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    "She has specifically not given Boris NoDeal on a platter, but she has really motivated Parliament to get their shit together." Remember that you don't literally have to serve it up on a platter to accomplish that. From my understanding,...

    "Herself reminds me that Policing is a devolved issue and before Javid could ship Glaswegian cops to Ulster, he'd have to get Nicola Sturgeon's permission. Which is likely to come in the shape of a declaration along the lines of...

    "In Johnson's shoes, my favored outcome would be a referendum which I would fight and lose. Seems to be the only outcome which likely keeps the Tories in power. " I'd assume that (1) he's worried only about himself, (2)...
