Theresa May is due to make a statement in Downing Street at 11.15am amid speculation the Prime Minister could call an early general election.

Mrs May is scheduled to make her statement immediately following a meeting of her Cabinet. The BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg confirmed the news and said such a statement is "only normally used for most serious moments".

Downing Street is yet to comment on what Mrs May will say. Statements outside Number 10 are highly rare and usually reserved for only the most significant announcements.

The last time Mrs May spoke to the nation in front of the famous black door was after she succeeded David Cameron as PM. Meanwhile, Mr Cameron used the setting to announce his resignation in the immediate aftermath of the EU referendum result.

It's either a general election or we're going to war with the North Koreans. Place your bets now.

Go on. I'd like to see you explain this one without some nonsense like suggesting that the polls on the last two occasions were "wrong" and without reference to Trump or the Michigan primary.

You've got the wrong end of the stick m8. Corbyn is unlikely to win even if the polls have underestimated his support to a greater degree than any poll in modern history. That doesn't mean it's impossible for him to win, but it is extremely unlikely. The bookies are saying 20/1, the betting exchanges are saying 40/1, I think it's more like 100/1, but he still has some remote chance.

The fundamental error people make when discussing polls is to round down "unlikely" to "impossible". The polls didn't say that Trump couldn't win, just that he was a 4/1 underdog. The polls aren't saying that Corbyn can't win, just that he's a 100/1 underdog. There's a very big difference between 4/1 and 100/1, but in either case there's still a horse in the race. If you insist on boiling everything down to certainties, then eventually the maths are going to make you look like a tit.

Corbyn is a lame duck, but the people saying that it's "mathematically impossible for him to win" are just plain wrong. That kind of complacency gave Trump a huge advantage and the Tories would be complete fools to make the same mistake. The Tories have a very good chance of winning this election with a large majority, but there are no guarantees and they need to fight for every seat.

>I think it's more like 100/1, but he still has some remote chance.
I think you're overestimating it, because you're pulling numbers out of your arse rather than actually thinking about it. There are two things you need to think about. First off, consider what has to happen for him to win. Then, assuming that the polls are somewhere in the vague vicinity of the correct answer, consider how that has to happen. (Hint: You need to Tories to lose votes that cost them seats while also gaining votes that don't win them seats.)

There's no comparison to Trump here. Pundits basically disregarded the evidence before them and declared that he didn't have a path to the White House, when not only did he have one but also the odds weren't particularly long either. Nate Silver put it at 30%, and it's a stretch to call that unlikely. For Corbyn, that's just not there. His path to Number 10 as it stands right now is to pick up seats on at best the same and at worst a lower vote share.

>The fundamental error people make when discussing polls is to round down "unlikely" to "impossible".
No, the fundamental error people make when discussing polls is to round down "not the most likely" to "unlikely". That's the mistake people made with Trump, and the mistake they made with Brexit. It's the mistake they're still making in regard to France, by insisting that the only likely outcome later today is a run-off between Le Pen and Macron.

Jeremy Corbyn's son is planning to stand for a seat in the House of Commons, sources have told The Telegraph.

Seb Corbyn is reportedly preparing to mount a campaign to replace his father's political aide Steve Rotheram, the sitting Liverpool Walton MP, who is standing down at the election in June. Mr Corbyn's son and his political secretary Katy Clark are both said to be seeking a seat in the Commons according to three separate party sources.

A deal could be struck with the National Executive Committee which would see seats divided between pro-Corbyn and moderate candidates.

The NEC has the power to choose a candidate without a ballot because Theresa May has called a snap election with just weeks to go until polling day. The party does not have an approved candidates list of people who are ready to stand when requested, like other parties do.

Hurrah for nepotism and cronyism. Hurrah for Corbyn and his principles.

>The final hours of many electoral campaigns are frantic affairs, dominated by last-minute pitches, late-breaking polls and massive social media campaigns aimed at drumming up turnout. Not so in France.

>Rules dating back more than half a century impose a 44-hour time out ahead of the polls' closure Sunday, meaning that politicians, journalists — and even ordinary citizens — are supposed to refrain from broadcasting any form of "electoral propaganda."

>The national time out lasts from midnight Friday to 8 p.m. on Sunday in France and is intended to give voters time to reflect on their choice free from the distraction of surveys, radio commentary, and televised rallies. The rules apply online as well, meaning that candidates and their campaigns can't do so much as post updates to Facebook or Instagram. The rules even apply to French voters — meaning that someone posting a pro-Socialist or pro-Republican message online could fall afoul of the law, at least in theory.

Just imagine that. You potentially suffer months of being bombarded with political slogans and shouting but for one weekend there is suddenly nothing.

/b/409828 We're all twats to some degree, but what makes you feel like a twat?
I used to be very awkward when meeting new people, but found that making jokes was a good way to contribute to conversations without getting properly involved. Over like 10 years I became really funny, and now during the laughter I just reflect on how much of a twat I am, smiling like a smug twat/laughing at my own jokes because if I don't react then I have no idea what to do, the only options are staring at people while they laugh or looking at the floor like I'm ashamed. Which I am, because when you're good at something it feels weird to revel in it.

Are you funny? Do you feel like a twat when you are?

I laugh maniacally and immediately at my own jokes, which means I probably should feel like a twat, but simply do not care to do so. I mean, why should I be the only one not getting something out of my own jokes? I am a comedy Marxist, and I will be damned if you're stealing my labour, you laughter bourgeoisie.

I've realised self confidence, for me at least, is just telling myself I'm great fun and if people don't like me it's their fault, so I don't really care what they think. Again, possible another sign of a completely broken personality. However, I do think it's improving how I interact with people I don't know very well as time goes by, which is something I've been quite poor at because of the many, many, many years I spent crying under a towel in the corner of my bedroom. That's something that does not make you a fun person, regardless of what comedians might try to tell you; or at least not that alone.

To actually bother answering your question, OP, I do sometimes feel like a twat, but I'm learning not to, because anxiety and shame are just the displaced fear of death, and as someone who will never, ever die, I no longer need to acquaint myself with these feelings.

I'm also quite happy to look like a bit of a twat for comedy's sake, like when I got into an argument about Israel with nine other people in central Manchester, or shouting about interdimensional aliens in the pub while the people at the next table were trying to enjoy their dessert course. But hey, if you can't handle the truth over a poached pear, then good luck coping when the fucking Fourth Reich bursts out of the hollow Earth and begins mulching you into protein paste for the sixty foot tall Alpha Draconis Reptilians, you fucking sheeple!

I'm twenty-two and my knob's not working properly. It's getting sixty percent hard then giving up.

The GP I saw today put it down to anxiety, but true to GP form barely asked any questions so once I was out I though of half a dozen other things I could have told her. Oh, and the sheet of paper informing me of my "chest pains" and "three weeks of erectile dysfunction" fell out of my back pocket on the way home, so hopefully it's a windy fucking weekend because this town isn't that fucking big and my name isn't that fucking generic.

I got into a discussion today over acceptable sentence length that I know you lads will enjoy. What rules do you try to stick to on this topic?

Personally I aim for between 30-40 as an absolute cap but it seems common that people apply the 25 words or fewer rule. Now I know that I am one of those people who is prone to writing long meandering sentences that don't go anywhere but I can't imagine writing on any serious topic using a cap of 25 words. Short sentences always generalize everything.

Do you want to be understood, or do you want people to think you're clever?

The average person has much poorer reading comprehension than you might expect. Literacy problems are widespread, but people are also distracted and short of time. The majority of English speakers are non-native. Most text is skimmed rather than read. If your ideas matter, then you owe it to yourself to express those ideas in a clear and concise way.

Varied sentence length is justified. The evidence clearly shows that the ideal range is five to 25 words. The longer a sentence, the harder it is to interpret. Long sentences consume precious mental resources that your readers could be using to understand your ideas.

I tend to take a different approach when it comes to my work. Short simple sentences might well be ideal for instruction manuals (or maybe not) but it loses out on some of the abstraction and vision that your ideas have if you write in a laconic fashion.

The aim I have is to do more than share an idea but also project a mindset which I've found creates much more engrossing writing as a side effect. To go back to instruction manuals it is more than "screw x to y" but also giving a sense of my thinking so you don't just know how to put this bookshelf together but also gain an insight into the underlying logic behind all bookshelf assembly.

Reading this over my suspicion is that I'm just channelling Pirsig and I think Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a good example of this. You don't learn much of anything about motorcycle maintenance but at the same time you do learn how to approach the topic on a much more fundamental level.

> Most text is skimmed rather than read.

Proper text skim reading is an art form though. There are people who just briefly skim over a text and will have forgotten nearly every detail five minutes later, and there are those that skim over a text and actually gain a lasting functional understanding of it.

If you go to uni and study something textbook heavy like social sciences or economics, you will have no choice but to somehow teach yourself to read and comprehend huge volumes of text in a very short time. Some advanced-level exams require 1000 pages worth of reading, and you will have two or three of those every semester.

I still annoy people with that ability. Especially when I am sitting at the computer with my mum or dad and we're reading something together on the Internet. My dad in particular keeps saying, "How can you honestly grasp the meaning of a text just by scrolling through it like that?"

So when I'm told I'm going to have to waste my time with stuff I already know it's understandable why I'll become cuntish.
I know they're only trying to help but I'm hardly some tracksuit wearing chav stinking of booze unwilling to look for work. As said I'm only really on it so I have a record I was doing something, I'm not going to be jumping through all their hoops this time.

/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

It is so liberating to be so brain-damaged that you forget about things that happened years ago, people you have met, things you did, etc. Sometimes I play along and act like I know what the fuck-off memory some of the cunts around me are talking about.

You completely missed the point. It's not about "self-aggrandising" and it's not about the alcohol, it's about the process that led you up to drinking the alcohol in the first place.

Even if you want to take the utterly simplistic case of someone who's drinking too much, the "fix" (as if there could ever be such a thing) isn't simply to stop drinking alcohol. All that stopping drinking will do for that person is take them back to who they were before they started drinking, which is to say the exact self same person who started drinking in the first place with all of same problems and reasons that they had before. Basically you're back to square one except now your liver hurts and all your friends think you're a prick. Thus the cycle of misery and addiction.

Thanks for sharing your utterly sophomoric thought processes with us anyway, cupcake.

If it's not about that, then why were you talking about wolf and sheep? Clearly he's functional when he's not drinking. It's also obvious that he was depressed post-binge, which is normal. I was just trying to reassure the guy that no, he's not really a psychopath or a bad person, that's the result of him drinking, whereas you seem to be doing the opposite and encouraging him to drink on top of that.

Despite his claim now that it's not the alcohol that does it, he's been doing better since he stopped. I think that speaks for itself. Now if you'll excuse me, a four-pack of tennants super in the offie is calling my name.

Wikileaks is just a publisher with a strong level of control from leakers on when the information they share can be released. Beyond that its just speculation, I mean you wonder what the Russians could offer with good reason because its not like they can stage a rescue.

Who is going to replace Dimbleby when he retires anyway? It seems like the BBC is going to have a real problem in a few years time not just with him but also Andrew Neil.

Huw Edwards was lined up to do the election in 2020, and is still the preferred successor for election night. I could see Marr taking on QT. He has the tenor to chair the debate and the hands to point at the audience members. John Humphrys has filled in before but he's only a few years younger than Dimbleby. Based on his performances on Newsnight, I'd keep an eye on James O'Brien.

My personal theory based on observations in 2010 and 2015 is that Dimbleby is actually dead and has been replaced by a robot. There's no way a 77 year old could have kept going from 10pm to 6pm with only a couple of hours sleep in the middle.

So my friend and I went into a KFC tonight to get out of the rain until it hit 12 and our money went in.

No sooner than I'd got my mobile out to use the WiFi some black kid comes over and pretends to want to know the time. My spidey senses were tingling so I put my phone in my inside pocket, zipped up my jacket and told him it was half eleven.

He then proceeds to ask us our names and asks if we are the police and what we are doing there if we aren't eating. My knob of a mate tells him we are waiting to get paid. Kid then starts trying to push drugs on us, which I declined saying I don't use, which was a lie but anyway.

Then he fucking says that he doesn't like white people chilling near him and says "look what I've got" lifting up the flap of his jacket pocket revealing a fucking razor sharp filleting knife.

I instantly got up to leave and my idiot mate hadn't even noticed so I had to drag him away.

I'm fucking livid. Imagine if a white person had done the same to him or another black person? There'd be cries of dolphin rape.


This really has lessened my opinions of blacks even further.

He can say he's not until the cows come home. I'm not a fan of this recent trend to declare everything that might step outside the boundaries of social conduct as "racist" but tarring anybody that isn't white with the brush of inferiority as it were is textbook bigotry and just not very nice really.

The Liberal Democrats have started a consultation process on what the parties next manifesto should look like. Its open to non-members and I thought everyone could benefit from you lads giving views.

It asks an interesting question: What would you spend £2 billion on?

I thought about putting the money towards adult education programs. Things like the Open University are fundamentally good ideas that gives people who otherwise can't study because of career and family commitments the chance to learn new skills and achieve lifelong learning. It sounds non-controversial but I'm sure there is ample chance to start a cunt-off on that idea.

Another interesting question is that it asks whether the Lib Dems should focus on staying in the European Union or on what Brexit should now be. An interesting option given the party is fervently pro-EU and I wonder what will fill the vacuum if its abandoned.
