  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    As an American, I used to envy the British parliamentary system. At least you guys have multiple parties that more or less told you who they were, sometimes in one word, e.g. "Labour" or "Brexit". We only get to choose...
  • Commented on Sometimes I don't know why I bother!
