"The winner between Discovery and The Orville, was The Orville as it was based on The new generation, was upbeat, clever, funny and had stories similar to what Star trek fans loved."

I did say in The Orville thread that it is now my second favourite Star Trek series behind TOS...

"The Govt announced the UK would be taking part in the EU elections on May 7th."

Just for balance: https://order-order.com/2019/04/01/government-instructs-electoral-commission-prepare-european-parliament-elections/

Letter from David Lidington to the Electoral Commission (odd that...) dated 1st April instructing them to start preparations for the EU elections.

Now there's always a chance that the EC believed it was an April Fools joke, but they apparently had far longer to prepare than for the 2017 election, which really was a snap election...

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

I'm staggered people find this so amusing after a protester was jailed for trying to egg Jeremy Corbyn, unlike both the guy who egged John Prescott or Prescott who subsequently decked the guy back in god knows when.

Yes, it was only a milkshake but this is going to escalate - you know that right?  Let's see how outraged you are when it's someone you agree with...

"Plus, they're crowd-funded, so probably aren't held to the same stringent guidelines as actual political parties during an election period, as much as the extreme-right Guido Fawkes would like them to be."

Extreme right?  Lol...if you say so.

I have no idea if they in actual breach of electoral guidelines but saying that just because they are crowdfunded that they probably aren't feels like a bit of a guess.

Here's a link to the Electoral Commission's "Overview of regulated non-party campaigning" document: http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0015/252150/Overview-of-NPC-activity-Gen.pdf

Oh, so are they also going after the likes of Soubry and Cooper then for saying they'd uphold the referendum result and were in no way trying to stop Brexit?  Kudos if they are but that ain't the impression I get from Remain voters who endlessly post their stuff.

"Sadly, a lot of voters will vote for the Brexit party purely because of Farage and it's got the word 'brexit' in the name. But ask them to name any of the party's policies and I doubt they'll be able to name anything outside the usual 'out means out' rhetoric."

For the European elections, what else does he need to send his message to Westminster?  Anyone who thinks the EU elections are about ANYTHING other than Brexit needs to give their head a shake.

For a General Election, that is completely different...

RE: [VIDEO] Game of Thrones Season 8

Didn't see any leaks, deliberately even avoided this thread until I'd watched this episode that I thought was superb and sets up the finale quite nicely now.

Lots of nice touches, including the Death Star gunner helmets on the ballista operators and a rather Flash Gordon-like bass pulse before the main battle started.  They may be coincidental but I don't care...

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Current polling shows the Brexit Party ahead by 13 points, with Labour second for the EU elections.

New poll out tonight for the next General Election shows this:

That would mean Labour have 137 seats than the Conservatives and form a minority government but the Brexit Party would get 49 seats...

RE: Big Brother spying on how you play games, and choices you make...

“One of the things I’d be very concerned about in a game like New Vegas is [...] we allow players to make choices that are really dark and bleak.”

I'm more concerned they make assumptions from those choices without the context of why the player chose that path.

I agree that everyone should register and exercise their democratic right to vote.

Do not assume though that all those not registered would actually vote the same way as you.

"I think a lot of remainers have gone to LibDem and Green, and leavers have gone to independents."

That is entirely possible, but you also have to remember that the Lib Dems have a good reputation for running local authorities, even if they are somewhat irrelevant at national level.

There were also increases in spoiled ballots, which I'd like to see more details on, but some of the numbers I found on social media suggest a dramatic increase against the norm:

As I said above, May 24th will be a better indication of the nation's overall feelings on Brexit.
