And they’ll probably say “no, but we still want to leave”. If Brexit doesn’t destroy the UK, the black hole of all that cognitive dissonance and blind fucking ignorance sure will.
And they’re STILL AHEAD IN THE POLLS. The British people are accepting whatever this shitstain does because... I have no idea why. I want to phone up my jn-laws and ask “IS THIS WHAT YOU WANTED”?
... but I don’t know what the hell to do.
This has to just STOP. It’s not about Brexit any more, he’s just tearing our country to pieces to score points. I don’t know how *anyone* can accept this. We’re supposed to be better, all of us.
I knew he was an unprincipled liar who doesn’t give a shit about who he harms, but fuck me... that’s actually made me feel ill.
I wrote an email appealing to my MP Jeremy Quin's principles. I don't expect much of a response. https://floppy.org.uk/blog/2019/09/24/a-letter-to-jeremy-quin-mp/
The UK constitution is shredded and the existing political class is in a total shambles.
Blank slate time. Top priorities:
1: Revoke Article 50; we can't make this magnitude of change in our current state.
2: End FPTP, bring in multi-member STV to truly reflect the wishes of the people.
3: Convene a citizen's convention to create a written constitution so the rules are CLEAR, and simple enough for even Boris to understand.
But as it's Boris, I think the proper response is to call it a "harmless gaffe" and carry on. Ho ho, daft, ain't he. What a card.
#matrix folks - if I want to unify on Matrix, connecting to IRC, various slacks, discord, and gitter (and whatsapp in my dreams), am i going to need to run my own homeserver? I don’t really know where to start; I don’t much want to dive deep into the rabbit hole, I just want to solve my problem of too many chat apps.
