Heh! Excellent.

Give yourself an exciting Arab strap!

I wonder if Kanye has ever done that. Tweet something, attach his watch to his cock and then feel the love as all the likes and retweets in.

So, serious question, how many retweets would you need in order to come?

Well, it's been at least a month since anyone got angry with you about their copyright.

One of the problems with autism is that I tend not to know how to interpret replies, so (e.g. here) I don’t know if I’m being mocked, criticised, reprimanded, or just a bit paranoid, but, after initially taking things at face value (and responding as such), I end up with it preying on my mind for hours, until I crack and post something like this. My best guess is that I should stop using this place to moan about self-inflicted intellectual property dramas?

No. I mean, I don’t think Grim... is mocking you (though that’s just how I’m reading it) more that he just has a dry humour. Grim...’s pretty lovely. But even if someone were just being nasty for whatever reason, that’d just be one person. Or two, or five. We’ve all on here hurt someone accidentally, and most of us on purpose, but honestly so many people will tell you that there’s a safe place here for when you’re having a bad time of things, and I know that some of your. Ad times have been around that.

Anyway, I think it’s more like ‘you had to generate SOME way for a notable person to interact with you on The Twitters’.

Ah thanks Mimi, that makes sense. Sorry, as I say, I’m a bit paranoid. Not that I’m trying to suggest I’m above mockery, obviously. I didn’t mean to imply Grim... was in the wrong, regardless of intention.

I guess I should have posted “IDGI”.

Meanwhile, Corbyn still insists there's such a thing as a "sensible Brexit", thereby basically inviting people to vote Lib Dem: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... referendum

I'd say that at this point the Lib Dem plan of clicking their heels and saying there's no place like home is the more naive one.

I'm starting to think that perhaps comedy panel shows are not the best recruiting grounds for high political office.

Maybe... In terms of purely winning votes (which obviously isn't the be all and end all), I think the Lib Dems policy might be more attractive. It kind of seems like, in terms of Brexit, Tories, Lib Dems, and Labour are now the "yes", "no", and "maybe" parties, respectively. I think people have polarised to the point where the latter is becoming less and less attractive.

But then, that could prove to be bollocks, who knows? Interesting times.

As an adopted Londoner, I feel bad that we didn't do enough to warn the rest of the country.

Heh, just had a flashback to Ben Elton doing a routine about being embarrassed by (then PM) John Major, when he was abroad. Little did we know...

What kind of vote swing would be needed to land the Lib Dems in power? Assuming a coalition with the Libs as main party. It would have to be catastrophic for Labour.

It makes the Lib Dems look distinctive. I'm just concerned that it might be off-putting in Tory/LibDem marginals.

Depends on what kind of marginal. A lot of those are (I think, but could be wrong) richer areas who wouldn’t vote Labour, which are more drawn to Revoke than No Deal (and would settle on May’s deal as a shitty compromise to get it over with).

So in those marginals (I’m basically thinking of places like Richmond) there’s a chance that the LDs could pick up seats.

My seat is Labour/Tory and can’t see it changing sufficiently from that to make LD a good vote.

If the PM of Luxembourg had pulled out a tub of lard and stuck it on Boris' empty podium, we would have come full circle and then Sam could leap again.
