    UK politics thread – it just keeps on getting worse

    The previous one was 8 years ago, which is, I feel, a reasonable amount of time for opinion to shift. That said, the Guardian poll tracking graph suggests that the vote is still pretty evenly split between Yes and No. If Scotland was going to declare independence, I'd expect it to be when there...

    2022 Game of the Year

    I really enjoyed Elden Ring. I did three playthroughs (though one was a speedrun on New Game+ for a trophy, technically) so they must have done something right. Stray was another game I loved, being a sucker for cats and robots.

    Transformers: EarthSpark

    I do miss when we used to have separate threads for each episode. And when TF shows used to not be dumped all at once.

    This is going to end with Elon broke and sodding off back to South Africa, isn't it?

    UK politics thread – it just keeps on getting worse

    I think like most developed countries, the UK had a large amount of systems and checks in place that just took a long time to unravel to the point where the issues started impacting everyone. It's like how Elon has fired 90% of the people working at Twitter, but the site's still going right...

    As expected, he's announced he's running for president. Though not before a 20 minute rambling speech about how his presidency was a golden age and everything under Joe Biden has been terrible.

    What stupid thing did the GOP say or do this time? Episode 3!

    Oh sure, I can see him trying, I'm just doubting the idea of him being able to organize candidates for the house and senate for his new party in time. Though given how much of a knife-edge balance there is, he might only need candidates in a few states to swing things the Democrats' way.

    What stupid thing did the GOP say or do this time? Episode 3!

    If Donald runs in the Republican primary and loses to DeSantis, wouldn't that only give him a few months before the election? I'm skeptical that he would be able to form a party in time to run senate and house candidates everywhere.
