Her heart's in the right place, but I don't think she has the experience or the political savvy to be PM. She'd be a decent opposition to a Johnson government, she'd be an excellent DPM, but I worry that a Phillips premiership could be a road to hell paved with good intentions.

I still fancy the pants off her, mind.

The old Bonald Blumpf thread is over 3000 posts long now. Can we have an impeachment-specific thread?

The US appeals court just ruled that Trump's tax returns can be released for use in a public criminal investigation. The Supreme Court may overrule this but despite having a conservative majority, it is far less predictable and prone to voting along 'party' lines. I'm really enjoying this season.

It's looking very likely that the vote on impeachment will be driven by the Democrats and Republicans looking ahead to coming elections, both presidential and in the senate and house of representatives.

Many republicans will be scared of voting against Trump as their voters may see it as a betrayal against the cause. However there are signs that many republicans would turn coat against him as they're seeing him as too much of a liability.
Democrats will probably vote against Trump, but it's not out of the question that some would feel that a likeable Democrat Presidential candidate would have much better chances against Trump than against a more moderate Republican candidate who might emerge out of the wreckage of an impeachment.

A lot will hang on what happens to Pence. Some Republicans might be happy to ditch Trump to see a coronation, but the whispers are that Pence knows pretty much everything and the Democrats may try and take him out too, knowing that with both of them gone Pelosi is next in line.

Young adults in England have scored among the lowest results in the industrialised world in international literacy and numeracy tests.

A major study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows how England's 16 to 24-year-olds are falling behind their Asian and European counterparts. England is 22nd for literacy and 21st for numeracy out of 24 countries.

Unlike other developed countries, the study also showed that young people in England are no better at these tests than older people, in the 55 to 65 age range. When this is weighted with other factors, such as the socio-economic background of people taking the test, it shows that England is the only country in the survey where results are going backwards - with the older cohort better than the younger.


Cue lots of finger pointing and nothing changing.

There's also a great deal of careers that, once you're about three or four years in, your degree isn't worth mentioning anyway. I don't typically include it in my CV, just simply don't have to.

>Most people go to university because they believe it'll improve their employment prospects. You might think that's terribly mercenary, but it's true.

This is a strong statement that I think you really need to justify with data. I imagine employment are one part of a broad array of motivations to go to university -- but even if you're just looking at employment prospects, I think there's more too it than just raw earning power. Things like control over work, interesting and comfortable work, better negotiating power, broader cultural understandings.

People may not always be able to articulate these factors, but they're all part of the package of a perceived "better life".

That's been my personal experience, too. I was nearly discouraged from pursuing education on the grounds that I might not get a job out of it. Sticking with it was the best decision I ever made, because it enriched my life in countless ways and gave me ideas for what I wanted to do. Ironically, this also allowed me to earn decent money.

Oh, lad.

My personal experience is that most people went to university because they didn't know what they wanted to do in life so it was preferable to spend three years getting pissed and putting off having to search for a job. A fair bit of herd following.

The number of 'good degrees' did not increase at the anywhere near the rate of people applying to university.

I took pains to emphasise "my personal experience" precisely because I don't think it's representative of the whole population.

My point was that my personal experience directly contradicts yours, and we could probably both do with something more reliable before we try to speak on as big a question as "why do people go to university?".

Government asks Queen to suspend Parliament

The government has asked the Queen to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the IIIWW deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda". But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal IIIWW on 31 October.

The DUP have really stumbled into an amazing game with this. Between Northern Ireland seemingly unable to form an executive and their sway over Westminster they have simultaneously locked out any Nationalist voice while dictating the IIIWW process themselves and bringing home the bacon. There's urgent need for government in Northern Ireland but I guess not even they could've predicted how long this would go on.

Not that I really blame them for being prickly. They don't want a hard border over the Irish sea just as the nationalist community don't want one with the Republic only they don't have as many people fighting their corner and seem to be passed over as an inconvenience in Great Britain. It's perfectly legitimate, being British they don't want to be ruled from Dublin or end up as a proto-colony of the EU and unlike IrishPassportlad they're not willing to sacrifice their identity for money.

Thankfully for them, they're willing to sacrifice all sorts of other things for money, like their integrity.

I find it funny that the complexities of the departure and the general shitshow that arises from a lack of functioning government haven't really bothered them but even the slightest hint of a woman getting an abortion and suddenly they're desperate to get around the table.

Instead of trying to broker an agreement, even half-heartedly, he's allowing Erdogan to reestablish a Second Ottoman Empire of whom the fiercest fighters against the most debased terror group in recent memory, the Kurds, will be the initial victims. Besides, of course, the Turks themselves who already labour under Erdogan's crooked and heartless rule. I simply don't understand how a man so wretched, debased and without sense could become the foremost leader in the world. Donald Trump's claim that he will tear down the economy of Turkey can't be believed any moreso than his denials of impropriety when talking with Volodymyr Zelensky, nor will they count for shit for the thousands of Kurds who will die, be maimed and be yet more traumatised by conflict. Kurds who, seeing they can't hope to win a conventional war within their own territory, will enact bombings and massacres against Turkish civilians, which will in turn increase the ferocity of Turkey's campaign and so on for decades. Donald Trump and the enablers within his administration were simply too lazy and self-absorbed to make even the most meagre efforts towards avoiding this, an act so sinful and without merrit I believe it to be the worst thing this sorry excuse for a man has done in office. I have spent the best part of three years ignoring his blathering, his posturing and his misdeeds, but to not even try, at any level, to prevent this, is so shocking an event that I am having trouble accepting it as reality. It is as if the Devil himself were occupying the Oval Office.

In a string of texts Griffiths called himself “Daddy”, promised money if he received racy images and described perverted and rough sex he claimed to have had with other women.

The shamed Tory wrote:

• “I’m going to need something filthy to put a smile on my face. I want to see you both naked.”

• “Take off the bra and panties… you’ve got Daddy in such a frenzy.”

• “I’m going to bring you to London and do whatever I want to you.”

• “I’m thinking maybe we need a flat for Daddy’s girls. I’m taken by you both. You girls are spectacular.”

Many more messages go into shocking detail about his liking for certain sexual acts and are too disgusting to print in full.

A Conservative MP who sent sexual messages to two barmaids has been cleared of wrongdoing by the parliamentary standards watchdog.

Andrew Griffiths, 48, resigned as small business minister last July after the messages were published in a newspaper. The watchdog said it found no evidence he sent them while he would have been engaged in parliamentary activities. Allegations he breached the House of Commons Code of Conduct were not upheld, it added.

If you don't get any cases, the waiting around doing nothing is boring. And there is a fair bit of sitting in waiting rooms while the lawyers do their stuff. But in the two weeks I did it, I saw three cases and sat every day.

The court/deliberation bit was fascinating (and frightening!) - you see how random justice is when you get in the jury room, and what you're dealing with when 12 random people listen to the same evidence.
