The Issue



A spiffing place to keep up to date with the latest developments.

I really need to start paying attention to the political situation down south, especially with that threatened and justified EU veto. It looked like there might be an election but now there isn't?

    Oh boy there's a countdown now. Kinda adds to the pressure on the government doesn't it?

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

    On the subject of zucchinis, courgettes, and marrows; I was doing some light Googling on the latter two terms and found a recipe for Marrow and Ginger jam. So I guess they do have an important role to play in post-Brexit Britain.

    And the LSE is pulling the trigger on its no-deal Brexit contingency plans, so that's nice.

    It shall be a tradition on Referendum Day, to congregate in the recreation quarter of your designated housing sector and savour the Referendum Day Marrow as it slowly roasts over the fire pit.

    All the inhabitants will crane their necks over the heaving crowd to try and catch a glimpse of the Brexit marrow, cooking slowly, hoping this year is the year they are chosen as a recipient of a segment.

    The elders will tell tales of a time when no-one cared for marrow and that marrow is actually quite shit. But the younglings will look at them with disgust. Appalled that anyone would dare question the majesty of the marrow.

    Whenever I think if I would rather have Boris or Rees-Mogg as PM my brain throws up a BSOD.

    Boris is short sighted, incompetent, utterly self serving and stupid. But he has a vague idea of what reality is even if he ignores or distorts it for his own ends.

    Rees-Mogg is a paint huffing, swivel-eyed, true believing, tophat and tails wearing, weird nanny/matron fetishising throwback to 1921.

    Johnson would be a terrible PM but probably quite popular with Tory voters. Rees-Mogg is probably a bit too weird to ever really win the hearts of anyone who isn't either terminally thick or desperate for the class system to reassert itself.

    Recently during a conversation I compared Imran Khan winning his election to Gary Lineker to becoming prime minister.

    Honestly at this point I would prefer that to any of the other options.

I am likely to require a second, English-speaking backup once my own country, your jackass wayward son America, finally breaks a rib trying to suck its own dick. I just can’t go to Australia. There are too many bare-chested surfer men with chiseled abs. It has to be England, for my self-esteem.
