“The forest was shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the Axe, for the Axe was clever and convinced the Trees that because his handle was made of wood, he was one of them.”

I suppose that means that brexit won't happen any time soon...

@dick_turpin @wyliecoyoteuk I think your view on the tories is correct, but I don't see it in the tory party that just got elected.

I think they have cut out too many moderates.

I hope I am wrong!

@dick_turpin That is confounding voters with the people who they voted for.

@dick_turpin @wyliecoyoteuk

Totally agree about labour.

I also agree with what you say about people buying lottery tickets.

What makes me sad is that they have voted for rich people, not people who can or want to make them rich.

Anybody with opinions on/experiences with Listmonk or MailyHerald? I'm looking to set up a small project newsletter thingy.

@dick_turpin I suppose the problem is the other side did exactly the same.

Sad times for all, I think, especially a lot of tories.

@dick_turpin I didn't think people wanted the country run by a small club of Etonians, cutting all but sycophants from their ranks.

But that, apparently, is what the nation wanted, so I stand corrected.

"I won't suspend parliament!" Lies

"I won't extend Brexit talks!" Lies

How do people think: "I'll build hospitals." and "I'll get Brexit done" is going to be any different.

We've gotten a taste for lies, it seems.

"I upgraded my PC to have an SSD" was literally said to me about this USB 2 monstrosity when I picked it up for a repair earlier :oh_no:
I am upset about the situation but glad I'm their new IT person to help them avoid this in future because nobody should have to live like this

Seems a bit off to be taking the piss out of a Christmas tree that is a gift from Norway...
