RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

David Lammy on Twitter:

On the steps of Downing Street, Theresa May just made a huge concession. Brexit is not inevitable. We do not have to choose between her atrocious deal and no deal at all. We can still remain in the EU.

Theresa May on the steps of Downling Street:

"The choices before us are clear: this deal...or leave no deal or leave all no Brexit at all"

That's a gigantic climbdown, but probably the only way she'll keep her position.

A bad deal's better than no deal

You know what's better than a bad deal? A good deal.

I think they're more embarrassing than anything. He's an abysmal businessman (6 bankruptcies and counting?), but like the snake-oil salesman he is, he's convinced his loyal band of morons that you can run a country like a business. You can't, but that hasn't stopped him applying his nationalistic and insular methodology regardless. 

However, once Maxine gets her claws in, I hope she never lets go. This is why Trump is threatening the democrats with reprisals, because he knows full well that he doesn't have carte blanche anymore

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

No, I was just being whimsical. Obama didn't publicly threaten the republican party with harsh reprisals if they obstructed him in any way, which is exactly what they did for 6 years

Obama also didn't publicly admit that he'd like to date his own daughter, and refuse to denounce white supremacists who just killed a person in Charlottesville.

He also didn't welcome the leader of a neo-nazi group to the white house not long after banning a white house correspondent and falsely accusing him of assaulting an aide.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Well, Trump's gone full-on desportic tyrant, offering the Democrats an 'olive branch', but also threatening them, in public, if they try to obstruct him in any way.

because that's what Obama did.

RE: [VIDEO] Playstation Classic (Mini)

After my treasured Megadrive, the PS1 was the first console I had that played a major part of my early geekdom. LOoking back I always regret selling them on, but living in the age of emulators means I can re-live those memories as and when. MGS & FFVII took days away from me, although FFVII was the game that made me realise it wasn't a genre that I managed to get on with. Tekken 3 left the most indelible mark on me, quite literally, as I have a copy of Jin Kazama's tattoo on my left arm. Ah, the impetuousness of youth!

Same with the flash forwards. Ed Harris' final 'twist' made hardly any sense in the larger narrative.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Wonder how many people he actually interviewed before he had enough material to fill 2 minutes? 670,000 people there so I'm sure he had plenty of footage he couldn't use as it didn't gel with his narrative. You only have to click through to his YT to page to see what circles he runs with

You're right about balance though, it's like that cro-magnon pleb they interviewed during an EDL march who kept going on about 'Muslamic Law'. It's easy to filter out the vox pops that make sense when you're trying to push your own agenda.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

It really was quite interesting, and completely predicatible that most of the news stories being shared on facebook yesterday were full of comments like 'pathetic', 'I'd rather be at home with my feet up', 'undemocratic remoaners' etc.

It's rather hypocrital that these idiots are always screaming about upholding democracy by obeying 'the will of the people', but will be equally as vocal to criticise 670,000 people exercising their democratic right to protest.

I brought one commenter up on his comment that the protest should have been outlawed, but mentioning that protests are banned mainly under communist and fascit regimes. That didn't go down too well

And this is exactly why I voted remain. I've always had a habit of looking at the very long picture, and all this 'get out NOW' and 'They'll be begging for our trade' rhetoric just makes me think those who shout that uninformed drivel weren't the types to pay attention at school

Honestly, you'd expect stuff like this in a communist dictatorship

Quote:
The audience laughed as the president said: "Thirty-six years ago this happened: I had one beer! Well, you think it was…? Nope! It was one beer.

"Oh, good. How'd you get home? I don't remember. How'd you get there? I don't remember. Where was the place? I don't remember.

"How many years ago was it? I don't know. I don't know. I don't know! I don't know! What neighbourhood was it in? I don't know.

"Where's the house? I don't know! Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don't know! But I had one beer. That's the only thing I remember. And a man's life is in tatters."
Last I checked, Kavanaugh wasn't the one having to move house because of death threats.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

The FBI is being restricted in its investigation, despite the White House claiming otherwise
Ford hasn't been questioned by the FBI
The republicans have released details about another accuser's past sexual history
Trump openly mocks Ford at a rally, to whoops and cheers from his supporters

If you tried to write a book/movie with all these details, you'd be criticised for going too far and making the bad guys unrealistically fascist

RE: [VIDEO] Bumblebee

Oh, it looks like there's plenty of action, but the difference is that while the screen is showing 2 giant robots righting each other, it's easy to tell them apart, and they still bear some resemblance to their Earthbound form.

As much as I despised Thatcher, and the harm she did this country, at least she was forthright and direct. May just comes across as a substitute teacher with delusions of grandeur.

RE: [VIDEO] Bumblebee

I remember everyone being excited when the original TF movies were announced, but then we ended up with Michael Bay throwing lumps of metal in front of a constantly-moving camera while people shouted a lot. This looks closer to the original (and best) designs as they were intended. The name 'Bumblebee' never suited a muscle car to begin with. 

But, Peter Cullen's in there again to lend his natural gravitas, so let's hoPe it doesn't devolve to an hour of grinding metal in the last hour

How to watch UV movies now Flixter's no more?

I must have missed the email, but apparently Flixster is no more, so I've got all these movies on my account I can't watch any more as the Flixster app has stopped working. Does anyone know of another android based app that will do the job?

RE: PlayStation classic - Sony get in on the act

Not sure about £90 for a console that will only have 20 games and non-dual-shock controllers (which'll mean no Gran Turismo), when virtually their entire back catalogue is available for emulators, which can utilise modern controllers such as those for the Xbox 360, which use for my PC gaming.

Nice idea, but a bit much for not a lot
