I agree with this Twitter thread.

Or, summarized quite well in this quote, attributed to Kim Campbell, former Canadian PM:
Quote :
If you never encounter anything in your community that offends you, then you are not living in a free society.

So there seems to be a movement to discredit the Brexit vote using the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
But what is the point, from a political POV? Both of the major parties are pro-Brexit and the one party that campaigned against it in the latest general election did poorly. There is no political basis for another referendum, so why would this scandal even be a factor?

Is it customary for Europeans to put the sender's details in the top-left corner and the recipient's details below the signature? To me that looks like VVP is sending a letter of congratulations to himself - but addressed to Juncker.

In any case, I wonder if this will get the condemnation Trump received for congratulating Tsar Vladimir on his coronation? Breaths shouldn't be held, I suspect.

Also should we be expecting any unexplained explosions in Arkhangelsk anytime soon or does May not have the balls to send a man out to die?

I chuckled at New Zealand admitting that they couldn't actually find any Russkies to expel.

Either they're the best undercover operatives EVER, or Vlad thinks there's nothing in NZ worth spying on.

Thought May's performance in the Commons over the Syria strike was gutsy and impressive.

Has she sacked those two dolts in her office that everyone hated and fucked up the campaign last year?

Yes, they were both sacked not that long after the General Election.

That wedding was a bit of a shitshow. Did the Queen have a say in all that PUHRAIZ JEEZUS Southern Baptist stuff? Just who's meant to be assimilating to whose institution here? And Meghan's from LA not the Deep South FFS.

I thought it was hilarious. Especially since several people were on the very brink of nervous giggles.

The Tories are angry at one of its own for blocking an upskirting law.

Heh. These silly sots simply cannot accept that their terrible ideas have been tried and found wanting by the people. They constantly lecture us about how we're on the wrong side of history when precisely the opposite is true. Hopefully Brexit, Trump and renascent Euro-nationalism will hasten many of these idiots to the grave.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of nascent nationalism on the continent, considering its historical antecedents.

Human beings are inherently groupish and one manifestation of groupishness is the nation-state in one form or another. Attempts to suppress this facet of human nature are necessarily totalitarian, and I'm not too keen on totalitarianism given its sanguinary history.
