This question really is, "Can US voters be persuaded to do something even more foolish than British ones?"

It seems to be a competition. I wonder which country is next. Perhaps China will have a silly idea to consider?
Donald Trump is pinning his hopes of winning the US presidential election on pulling off a Brexit-style shock - could he do it?

They want to improve how we handle referenda. We don't. The UK is a parliamentary democracy. Opinion polls don't count.
The EU referendum campaign was dogged by "glaring democratic deficiencies" with voters turned off by big name politicians and negative campaigning, the Electoral Reform Society says.

+Gilles Bourdin Brexit was an opinion poll that said "tick leave if you want things to change". If all the Brexiters had to agree on a realistic strategy for how the policy would be implemented you'd struggle to get 10% of the turnout in one line.

You want to be worried today? Just consider that the UK spook agency MI6 is now run by Boris Johnson...

We are still British!
Larry the cat will continue to live in Downing Street when David Cameron leaves office - because he is a civil service, rather than political, mouser.

This is an encouraging piece of news. Mr Putin seems to be acting like an adult.
I hope this catches on!
President Putin announces Russia will not carry out a tit-for-tat expulsion of US diplomats.

How can they manage to do this? We can't agree on what those values are!
1 Tolerance
2 Calmness
3 Charity
4 Reticence
5 Strong dislike of "far-right" politics
6 Deference to those who deserve to be in authority
7 Derision towards who don't deserve it.
We probably only have number 7 left now.


Holders of public office should swear an oath to British values, minister Sajid Javid says.

How smooth can a ritual self-disembowelment (sepukku) actually be?
No matter how carefully and quietly you do it, your insides become outside,you bleed a lot and you die a painful death.
Theresa May heads to Brussels for her first EU summit as prime minister, where she is expected to say she wants a "smooth, constructive, orderly" Brexit.

+Scott Watson​ that only applies to inferior Japanese. British Brexiteers champions will manage it easily, if necessary they will just change the laws of nature to match up with their reality.

And when reality refuses to cooperate, they'll jail reality for treason ;)

Why do people insist Duo is out? It pretty blatantly isn't.

Although is is out around here (UK and Europe anyway) I do think they shouldn't tell us it is out until it is available in more than (for example) just Cowchip Nebraska and Flatulence Illinois. ;-)

He Said no such thing

Anyway, having an AR15 or AK47 is not going to allow some idiot, or even a whole building full to overthrow their elected government!
George Washington didn't say that free people need "sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence" from their own government.

God you are incredibly hard to look at.  No really, you are quite unattractive.  When you lose all your hair, you will be fat, bald, and still ugly.

Story
Tagline
My parents were from Fife in Scotland and Orkney to the north of it. I am British and pleased about that.
Introduction
I am a product of the British Public School system from 3 decades ago.  I think I am getting better now.

Having tried a couple of different lines of work, I found IT was more fun than working in an accounts office and so have stuck at it.

I work in IT support in a hospital.  It is part of the British National Health Service.  Not only do I get to do work I like, I also get to support something I feel is the finest thing this country ever invented!

Looking after those who cannot look after themselves, is one of the basic definitions of being civilised.
