Re: Old World Politics - rising from the ashes

As for Brexit, I don't think that's a critical factor in the UK's current economic situation. Growth is stagnate in many European countries, inflation raged through the eurozone in 2022, etc. While there certainly has been widespread economic problems all over Europe caused by the pandemic and the ...

Re: Old World Politics - rising from the ashes

I have a hard time seeing what's "Conservative" about the old tories these days; to me, the party seems more like Labour, but less radical, more cautious (and pusillanimous). Maybe they are about "conserving" the UK's structural deficiencies? British people may get shocked by that statement, but I ...

Portnoy is right, Clooney & Co. would vote for a head of lettuce for Prez.
Well, considering the other option is a convicted felon and rapist who is also showing signs of dementia... maybe lettuce isn't that bad.

Re: Old World Politics - rising from the ashes

Third, the lib-dems basically held serve in terms of raw vote total, slightly fewer total votes, but a slightly larger vote share than in 2019. They are tough for me to pin down on the political spectrum given that I am not a student of UK politics, more of a casual observer. They seem a bit more s...

Re: Old World Politics - rising from the ashes

The French elections has some good and some bad news. The good news is that the Russian backed National Rally did not gain a majority, which would have impeded a united stance by the EU when it comes to supporting Ukraine. They probably would have, if French elections worked as British do, as they w...

Not being a citizen of USA if Biden dropped out can they put anyone in to run for President? I assume yes but you never know. Basically yes. The candidate is decided on at the convention. Neither party has held their convention yet, so who they will present as candidates is anybody's guess... :wink...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16 *AND* 20 *AND* 22 *AND* 24

The problem (for all of us imho) is the most logical choice is Newsom which, to me, is an extremely frightening prospect. A lucid Gavin is more dangerous than a senile Biden I do believe. I agree with you, but Newsom has fucked up California soooo bad. For that reason, and because it's so late in t...

Re: CC Random thread

Vallvidrera, near Barcelona, has a curling club. Each season, the members of the club go to the local reservoir and toss a stone in to see if the ice is strong enough to play. Since the water never freezes, they go for brunch instead and raise the toast ‘We shall play one day’. :lol:

Re: CC Random thread

Canada off to the semi finals in COPA. Huge wins by this team. This team has really moved soccer in Canada to the front. Great! :D I’ve always thought the Copa America should expand and include North America as well. A Concacaf championship would be meaningless, but you guys playing in the Copa is ...

Re: Past Canuck Players

There was a bankruptcy threat looming over OEL's old team Tingsryd, which would also have them automatically demoted. They were like USD 250,000 short. OEL donated 150,000 and two other sponsors split the remaining 100,000. There will still be a hearing with the league, where they need to present an...

Re: Old World Politics - rising from the ashes

Of the Northern Irish seats 7 went to Sinn Fein, 5 to the DUP, 2 to the Social Democrats, 1 to Alliance (a centrist group), 1 to the Ulster Unionist Party and 1 to an independent unionist.

Plaid Cymru won 4 Welsh seats, which is two more than they had before.

Re: Old World Politics - rising from the ashes

Landslide victory for Labour in the UK elections, as predicted, winning some 412 seats out of 650. Two seats currently undecided. Labour have gained more than 200 seats and the Tories have their worst outcome since the parliament was reformed in 1832, losing some 250 seats and just holding on to 120...
