Ah yes that bastion of intellectual high culture panto. Also current culture secretary btw.

Someone at Tory Central Office has a f*ckin' wicked sense of humour in getting SpiffSpaff to elevate Nadine Dorries to Cabinet in order to get us libtards frothing.

The absolute dearth of gravitas amongst UK politicians is depressingly bad.

feel like its cheating/not quite in keeping with the thread to mention 'murica (which has arguably also lost its collective mind since as far back as Vietnam, and has separate threads for Trump's presidency for which theres plenty of ammo) but its too good not to add. I'll justify it as serving as a nice little illustrative crumb of comfort that America too has gone completely insane.

Better ending would be a drone strike wiping out the dog and everyone else in a half mile radius,

I actually saw someone tweet "totally normal country" about the clips shared of teenagers escaping the high school shooting in Michigan but I don't think a load of murdered kids is really in the spirit of this thread, or any other.

I'm guessing Stephen Glover's article is going to be an angry, bitter tear-stained mess. Magnificent. 

If the headline is anything to go by, I presume it will be laced intricately with both his salty tears, and one rant after another that allows the reader to go "that Prince Andrew yer on about there mate aye?"

I know little of the case itself, but I hope they have to pay out a fucking fortune. Preferable to a refugee charity or something. c***s.

This tweet has been widely and deservedly dunked on in the last few days but it’s part of a wider trend in the fabled discourse to use food as a marker for politics.

This is a rare example of it from the Remainer, FBPE wing of Britain, it’s far more common for it to come from the right, terms like “latte drinkers” are the sort of thing I’m talking about, as though a latte is some sort of rare exoticism rather than a drink that you can buy in practically every cafe in the country.

"Soy Boy" is one I've seen a lot over the past few years.

That guy is so stupid it's actually hurting me to think about why he posted this.

A wonderful example of middle class women refusing to take responsibility for anything. 

She was unable to contact HMRC for 18 months because "my child would need to be fed, or something".

She spoke to someone who advised her to buy property and moved £100k to a savings account but didn't think to contact her bank.....

Silly cow.

After the Guardian contacted HMRC it investigated and discovered that a member of its staff had made the mistake while trying to pay Peters a £23.39 parcel customs duty rebate.

The money had not been destined for another person or company, and may well have never been detected had she not come forward. A personal tax expert told the Guardian that they had never come across such a case in 30 years of dealing with HMRC.

The 5 figure annual interest income on your tax return might be a bit of an issue too.

What if you just leave it in a zero interest current account and don't touch it for 5 years say?
