Labour are tied up in knots because they pledged at conference that they'd first try to get a general election above all else and if they failed in that they'd push for a second referendum.

The Labour leadership do NOT want a second referendum. They don't want to be seen advocating for one. Even now, when the stakes have never been higher, they will do anything to avoid having to get down off the fence.

That's why we're getting impotent, pointless motions like the one yesterday. Anything to stall for time. Anything to kick their conference pledge into the long grass. Even if that means foregoing the chance of a general election.

How do you suggest they go about getting one then Einstein?

I don't think all these games and second-guessing is very good for the nation, do you? It's not House of Cards.

General Bullshit / Re: Am I Being Unreasonable?
« Last post by checkoutgirl on Today at 10:36:29 AM »
Not unreasonable I guess but you're probably shown a boring side to yourself that your partner didn't know existed.  You'd be best off breaking up.

I think it's perfectly reasonable not to want to go to Mexico at the drop of a hat just because your partners are going there for a business trip. It's whether your partners think if  it's perfectly reasonable that's the issue. Will your partners think you're not spontaneous enough? Will your partners ask you to visit some other place that you don't fancy either and this will push you further apart? Will the sex dry up? Will your partners family say you're not good enough for you partners.

Best call it quits now before someone really gets hurt.

Deeper Into Movies / Re: Can Christian Bale actually act?
« Last post by Obel on Today at 10:36:05 AM »
It's hard to consider Bale's acting style when he's sitting opposite Sam Rockwell. Rockwell is brilliant. Even though I see now it's clearly him I was sitting there ready to believe they got a Bush impressionist, thinking "fuck me is that Sam Rockwell!?"

Dad's retired to the shed to get away from all the Christmas commotion and over-indulgent fun and food.

His frozen body is discovered by a junkie thief looking for a lawnmower to nick on the 7th of January.

1974 timeline (US-centric). Although this year produced some great ex-Beatles music, you can also see the culture moving away from them

It is good, you racist.

I don't think Mexican food is that great. They can't even get bacon and eggs right.

They really need to figure out what they're doing with Renee's role in the Ambrose storyline. She's being quiet and neutral, which might be "professional" but it's not interesting. She's the colour commentator, she needs to add something. Conflict is good for commentary, so if Cole and Graves are going to keep talking about how despicable Ambrose is, she should step in and defend him. It doesn't compromise her position as a babyface, she's his husband. She doesn't need to heel out and berate Rollins, but she can speak from Ambrose's point of view, explain how he feels, why he's doing what he's doing. You don't need to talk about what he's like at home, or how the marriage is going, just speak from the position of perhaps the only person in the world who understands Dean Ambrose.

That's what she's been doing hasn't she? She was doing that through the whole Ambrose v Rollins match at TLC because Corey kept attacking her. It was boring and took away from the, admittedly boring, match that was going on.

I'd rather her just say "our personal lives are private" and move on.

Carl was the bouncer at Tony's club in Bang Bang.
