RE: Not a fan of Tom Watson, but really?

Getting rid of the post doesn't get rid of Watson in fact arguably it makes him more of a problem for the Corbynieri.

If any of you have the time and interest I'd strongly recommend watching The Rise of the Nazis on beeb iplayer.

I was somewhere over the Atlantic when that went down.

I can't work out if I like this or not but it's certainly a watch to the end and a strange melding of cultures.

The Pig ****er is due to favour us with his view on (presumably) why none of it was his fault and would we all please buy his book to read about it.

Well do you?

I know but it's the closest I'm ever going to get and there's still that part of me that remembers reading Dan Dare and dreaming.

Leo Varadker at the lectern next to Johnson

For those of us without a classical education, which doesn't include Johnson who will know the relevance of the Athena comparison, the following will be instructive.

Quote:
Quite a loaded “Athena to your Hercules” jab from Irish PM. She helped Hercules when he went mad by knocking him unconscious, preventing him from killing more people than he already had (including his children).

Possible as I don't have the problem on Chrome but it's more of a faff using a browser on my phone than an app.
Still liking Friendly on Twitter so I'll stick with that for the time being.

RE: Twitter problem

Tried that Rob and cleared cache.
Out of the first 7 tweets 1 promoted and 3 'You might be interested'

Muted 'You might be interested in' 
3 out of the first 4 headed by that phrase.

Any suggestion for a better Twitter app than Twitters own?
Tried Tweetcaster. Hate it.

EDIT: Update.
Trying Friendly for Twitter.
Initial impression favourable and it's removed those notifications.

Twitter problem

I've just posted this up with little hope as Twitter never responds in my experience and I've not got many followers if you weed out the bots.
Fairly self explanatory.

Quote:
Help required.
Android #Twitter is now flooding my timeline with 'You might be interested in'
I've turned off notifications and alerts but it's still happening.
The equivalent of being told which paper to read and even which pages. #nothappy

Any advice?

"Si, at what point will you stop calling them Conservatives and start calling them what they are becoming, The Brexit Party?"

Calling them Bluekip started as a joke but it's very obviously Johnson, Cummings and Co's intention to remake the party by attempting to suck back in Farage's clan and to hell with the old guard Tories. No longer a broad church and very likely they will have to drop 'Unionist' from the party title.

What happens on the other side of the Brexit argument is less certain. Looking good for the Lib Dems at the moment but Corbyn is now trying to attract the remain side. This seems to be by hanging on to the 'we will get a better deal' fiction but with the option for a peoples vote in which Remain is on the ballot so do they campaign against the deal if they can't improve it.

If you don't listen to this podcast and to be fair I don't listen to every episode, do yourself a favour and listen to the latest.
