    I would assume they get together and solve crimes...


  2. In Topic: Brexit or bremain

    From what I gather, it's finally come to a point where even Boris realises he has to make a deal, and keep to it, with the EU. Cummings, with this accelerationist stance on political and societal change through breaking the institutions of government and international relations, was a hindrance to that. So one of them had to go. And Boris holds the whip hand in that relationship.

    I assume Cummings will land on his feet at some dodgy rightwing thinktank or something. Or perhaps he'll sell his services to Nigel Farage, who appears to out and about, making his own brand of witless trouble in the UK again, after his US gravy train appears to have dried up.

    I'd also argue that if Covid hadn't happened Cummings would still be in a job. The economic fallout from the Covid epidemic is a force multiplier on the disaster that a no deal Brexit would be. So I would say that even Boris is worried about that outcome now.

    Given the way Trump's behaving now, we might be in the unfortunate position of watching a sitting US President have a breakdown. Which is very disturbing indeed. If he does actually lose, I would bet a lot on the GOP turning on him in a big way, and doing their level best to disabuse everyone of the idea that they spent 4 years fawning over him and his every whim.

    If he carries on the way he is, and he's probably only going to get worse as the situation looks more dire for him, they will want to distance themselves from him in a big way.

    I think we're getting to the stage where Trump is going to ask his lawyers to actually argue in the Supreme Court that an illegally cast vote is defined as anything that doesn't have an X next to the name Donald J Trump.

    I'm not sure the lawyers came out of it well... But they certainly came out of it richer.

    I wrote "linguistically" even though it's technically only about language not vocabulary because I couldn't find a way to use "lexicon" with so few characters available. Good thing I don't use Twatter then.
    Maybe "palaver", "cant" (there's a word the Yanks have ruined) or "glossary" ... ? Nope. :P

    The BBC link to Infinite Jest talk seems to be down already. I am in the US though. Does it still work for you?
