  1. The Lady is for U-Turning She's a mess She took a gamble and lost it But refuses to acknowledge it And it's not just the social care bill backtracking (never mind she kept trotting out her "building a fairer Britain" rethoric since her appointment last July) It's also the appalling and evasive way she's shown in dealing with Brexit Happy for Corbyn

  7. David Davis resigns as UK Brexit secretary https://www.ft.com/content/fef0e51c-8300-11e8-96dd-fa565ec55929 David Davis has resigned as Brexit secretary in a major blow to Theresa May. The prime minister is hoping to win over Tory Brexiteers after a backlash against her plans for leaving the European Union. But the Press Association reported that Mr Davis, who signed up to the plan agreed by the cabinet at Chequers on Friday, has now quit. Two senior sources confirmed Mr Davis’ departure from the cabinet. His exit may embolden Brexiteer backbenchers with concerns about Mrs May’s leadership. The move comes on the eve of a major test for the prime minister as she faces first the House of Commons and then a potentially stormy meeting of Tory MPs and peers on Monday. Mrs May is expected to tell MPs that the strategy agreed on at Chequers is the “right Brexit” for Britain.
  8. More nonsense to demonise and antagonise Russia in Washington DC's phony Syrian narrative Meanwhile Washington, London, Rome, Paris etc keep selling hundreds of millions of dollars worth of weaponry to Saudi Arabia and the likes The de facto sponsors of Salafism, Wahabism, ISIS etc Outrageous and truly criminal

    George Michael thread

    This is so sweet and saddening at the same time. I think these words or the fact that Prince gave a private concert for Madonna while she was on tour, a few months before he died (not enough apparently for her to not get subjected to a spate of "skepticism" and malevolence over her tribute), are a much more poignant and truthful commentary on Madonna, her impact, her legacy in 2017 than any silly tabloid story that still surrounds her 35 years later. Some lesser names should take a leaf out of these guys' books and learn to be a little bit more gracious, respectful and objective when it comes to Madonna And George was so right, the era of the superstars is gone forever, and not just in music, now we have manufactured non stories, staged pap shots, Taylor, Bieber, 50 shades of sxxt and the likes

  14. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-41712263 Italy referendums: Lombardy and Veneto 'back greater autonomy' Two of Italy's richest northern regions have voted for more autonomy, according to their leaders. More than 90% of voters in Lombardy, home to Italy's financial capital Milan, and the Veneto region around Venice, voted yes in the non-binding referendum, their presidents claimed. Both men are members of the Northern League, which has long argued that the north is subsidising the poorer south. The regions together account for about 30% of Italy's national wealth. Critics of the polls call them a stunt to bolster the right-wing Northern League before a general election next year, while the central government in Rome says the polls are unnecessary although they are permitted under the Italian constitution. They contrast sharply with the crisis in Spain where one of the richest regions, Catalonia, held an referendum on independence on 1 October, despite the country's constitutional court ruling it illegal. In response, Spain's government plans to impose direct rule. 'Not in Sicily' But President Roberto Maroni, who leads Lombardy, where voter turnout was about 40%, has sought to distance the Italian vote from the situation in Spain. "We are not Catalonia," he told Reuters news agency in Milan. "We remain inside the Italian nation with more autonomy while Catalonia wants to become the 29th state of the European Union. We, no. Not for now." One of the regions' main complaints is that they send much more in taxes to Rome than they get back in public spending, and want to roughly halve their contribution. Lombardy, Mr Maroni says, annually pays out €54bn (£48bn; $64bn) more than it receives while for Veneto, where voter turnout was higher, at between 57% and 61%, this figure is said to be about €15.5bn. "Our taxes should be spent here, not in Sicily," Giuseppe Colonna, 84, told AFP news agency in Venice. But critics object to millions of euros being spent on referendums when all regions already have the constitutional right to negotiate directly with Rome. "Once you open up the issue of what the northern regions pay, then I expect a backlash in southern Italy," Giovanni Orsina, history professor at Rome's Luiss-Guido Carli University, told Reuters.

    In which tours should M have sung Bad Girl?

    Me too! Another song that is begging for a performance is Gambler. Next I'd love You'll See. But at least those other two gems got some love. I keep rewatching her Saturday Night Live BG performance trying to picture her singing it today. That was such a marvellous performance. The song is amazing and she's amazing singing it, it really deserves some stage treatment
