It's going to be quite the gold rush to flog these Communist Bioweapon trackers to .gov isn't it?

Re: freedom and choice

Sadly, the zeitgeist on El Reg is very much London Bubble. The poor oppressed Low Information Voters needs to be protected from themselves. Especially the strengtheningly diverse ones. They're not really responsible for their actions, like a person would be, are they?

Oh, unless they voted for Brexit, in which case, you know, all forking gammons must forking hang.

It's tiresome, but what are you going to do? Only experience can narrow the mind.

Re: BFH

I make it seven times. Let's not get all liberal with facts.

He handed South Thanet to Labour in 2005, but they got it back despite him in 2015, so I'd call that a wash.

Re: BFH

"At it's [sic] peak [UKIP] had 2 MPs"

The issue wasn't how many MPs that UKIP could get, it was how many Tories they could scupper. UKIP was always a protest-and-pressure party.

Even with Comrade Corbyn whipping up the yoofs who yearn for socialism (we'll do it right THIS time!), and Maybot running a truly catastrophically inept campaign, the collapse of the kippers kept her in Downing Street by the skin of her fangs.

Re: "decried as 'fake news' because it's written by well known climate 'deniers'"

Ah, but burning witches doesn't contribute to climate change.
