    Fracturing of states is never going to be approved by any dominant international power as its a precedent that would bite themselves too much.

    I wonder if the desire for greater self determination is a corollary of digital/tech/comms allowing 'better' governance across wider geographies which people dislike being ruled from a distance from, a long with the resulting increasing of transparency limited tradtional state responses to this ad-reaction.

    My hunch is it's a smash and grab with just enough minor reduction in people's tax that come the next election, the tories will try to position Labour as tax raisers and anti Real people.

    Currently labour are saying they'll back the reduction in the base rate of tax but not the abolishment of the highest rate of tax which is sensible. What the tories are doing is a bigger bonfire than that though and Labour have issues cutting though in a media captured by either the people the tories favour or those in thrall of balance over reality.

    And who knows what Labour would do in power and whether they have the vision, skill, and are given a mandate to do what's needed to be done to haul the country in the right direction. That will mean challenging the status quo/fiddling with the edges and vested interests - the pain of which will be inflated because of the reasons above.

    The guy who does the excellent Nerd of the Rings YouTube channel has seen it. He's always been cautiously optimistic and he's now saying he's loved it. Cue a bunch of idiots calling him a shill etc.

    Seems the Tolkein fanbase can be as ridiculous and toxic as the SW one...

    Genuine question, is there a fan base that hasn't gone like this in the face of one of these events? I feel like this kind of reaction might be an natural consequence of being a fan base.

    Monkeypox isn't an areasol based infection . You need really close contact for transmission, currently.
