86407 Jury duty
I've been summoned for jury duty! It's a first for me, and I'm not quite sure what to expect. Paperwork suggests we can expect an introductory course of sorts etc, sounds all quite straight forward. How'd it go for you? Acquaintances have dealt with being on short-ish cases (couople of weeks, no more), but due to my situation I perhaps stupidly suggested I'm available for a few months. Bad move?

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.

Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers

Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.

She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.

It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.


This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

That's a fair point. It's a protectorate with its own currency, it isn't a member of the UK. I imagine they'd probably vote to become independent though if the pound crashed through the floor, as their interests might be better served by Holyrood or Stormont at that point. The Scots have vastly more experience at accommodating the needs of island communities, so that would be my guess.

Assuming the above is an inevitability.

85368 How accurate is this article?
I'm not British, sorry about that. Is this editorial at all within the realm of reality or is it just character assassination?

“She was dealt a bad hand.” “She took a poisoned chalice.” From a great distance, it is possible to feel sorry for British Prime Minister Theresa May. She seems so dignified. She seems to be trying so hard. The circles beneath her eyes have grown so much deeper since she became prime minister back in 2016, following the surprise result of the Brexit referendum, the resignation of her hapless predecessor, David Cameron, and an ugly leadership squabble, during which several of her male colleagues metaphorically stabbed one another in the back. Since then, she has always seemed to outsiders the sensible person in the room, the adult who knows what she is doing, the sane person in a madhouse.

Alas, she is not any of those things. She is not sensible, she does not know what she is doing, and, increasingly, she doesn’t seem to be entirely sane either. Outside of Westminster, the extent of May’s responsibility for this crisis might not be fully appreciated. But in truth, almost everything about Brexit — from the nature of the deal she negotiated to the divisions in her party and her country — is very much her fault. The latest development — European leaders have told her that the United Kingdom can have a Brexit extension until May 22, if May can get her withdrawal agreement passed in Parliament, but must crash out of all of its trading arrangements on April 12 if not — underlines this bitter truth. She is not to be pitied: She is the worst prime minister in living memory, presiding over a crisis of her own creation.

The list of her mistakes is not short. She did not have to trigger Article 50, the legal mechanism for leaving the European Union, before making a plan on how to do so: That decision set a two-year clock ticking and has resulted in the cliff edge the country would have reached on the 29th of this month if an extension had not been granted. She did not have to call an unnecessary parliamentary election in 2017, one which resulted in the loss of her majority and forced her to rely on a small, radical, Protestant Northern Irish political party, as well as the extreme anti-European faction within her own party, in order to stay in power.

But her errors go even deeper. In fact, all of the events of the past two years have been shaped by a decision she made, by herself, following bad advice, at the very beginning of this process. Remember that the British did not vote for any particular form of Brexit: Thanks to Cameron’s simplistic, open-ended referendum question, they chose to “Leave” the European Union but did not express any view on what should happen next. When she took office, May could have observed that the vote was very close, that Britain’s commercial and political ties to Europe were strong, and that it would make sense for the United Kingdom to stay within the single market, the pan-European free-trade zone that Britain itself did so much to create — or at the very least within a customs union.

Instead, she chose to leave both of those institutions, a decision that immediately triggered the problem of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, which was eliminated thanks to E.U. trade treaties but will, if customs barriers are put in place, need to be built back. Her decision also created potential problems for anyone who trades with Britain or works with Britain — and for Brits who trade and work in Europe. But she was not sorry: She accompanied her decision with a speech that called “a citizen of the world” nothing more than “a citizen of nowhere” and immediately alienated a large part of the country.

She went on to alienate almost everyone else. Until this week, nearly three years after the referendum, she made no effort to reach across the aisle and include opposition parties in the planning for this momentous national change. Although the E.U. has been entirely transparent about its negotiating goals from the beginning, she kept hers secret. She tried, and failed, to prevent parliamentary scrutiny of her deal. She does not respond to pleas, advice, suggestions. Columnist Matthew Parris has described her as “the Death Star of modern British politics,” a black void that sucks in people and ideas and never provides a response.
Her secrecy and incompetence have created ill will in Europe, and real anger in the House of Commons, some of whose members have belatedly tried to take control of the Brexit process. They have begged her to try a series of votes, to try to find one version of an exit plan that could pass the entire chamber. John Bercow, speaker of the House of Commons, produced a decree from 1604 in an attempt to prevent yet another vote on her deal, after two had already failed. But she seems to take none of it in. On Wednesday evening, she made a bizarre, crypto-populist appeal, over the heads of Britain’s elected representatives, to the nation: “You the public have had enough,” she declared. “You are tired of the infighting. You are tired of the political games and the procedural rows” — as if the political games and procedural rows were not all entirely her fault. “It is high time we made a decision,” she said — as if she were not the one preventing Parliament from doing exactly that.

84456 Ban anonymous accounts, Angela Rayner tells social media firms

>The shadow education secretary, speaking at a Labour party conference event, said social media firms should take greater responsibility for their users and noted in particular that Facebook seemed to have indicated that politicians should accept a higher level of abuse.

>Rayner, at a fringe event organised by the Guardian, conceded that insisting on real names wouldn’t stop abuse, but “it would certainly help a little bit. I think they should do more – they do have a responsibility for online.”

I... kind of like Angela Rayner, but this is a truly awful idea that seems to have had absolutely no thought put into its implementation or wider affects on freedom of expression. Technically almost every single account commenting on The Guardian is an "anonymous" social media account because why would you use a real name for such a thing.

I really hope this doesn't gain any kind of traction.

84886 Right I'm fucked and I've sussed Brexit
Now I'm just a simple lad but it seems to me that the problem really is that some people don't want it and some people do, and those are themselves split into groups about what specifically wanting and not wanting it means; we just can't come to a proper agreement about what Brexit should look like because we all want different things.

So it seems to me that the real issue is that the nation is far too big now to properly represent the wishes of its population. We need more granularity!

I propose that we divide the UK into a number of smaller client kingdoms, all of which are inherited by the current monarch. The boundaries of these client kingdoms would reflect the historical cultures of their inhabitants, for example my idea of a Kingdom of Dál Riata would comprise mainly of those areas of Scotland with high levels of Gaelic speakers, the same for Gwynedd and Kernow (Northern Wales & Cornwall). They have their own languages and peoples, we should let them run their own affairs.

We can then become the United League of Kingdoms of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the ULK. This would take the form of a confederacy in which a Grand Parliament in London would control matters of defence, currency and internal trade.

As a successor state to the UK, we should retain our membership of the EU (with all the concessions and special rights negotiated by the UK) and as a confederacy, it would be down to each individual kingdom to choose whether to (re)invoke article 50 or not, and thus to retain or withdraw membership of the European Union, and could each come to the decision whether to make a Withdrawal Agreement or not. Trade between the kingdoms would be tariff-free except to the EU-remaining ones, where mandatory EU tariffs would apply for imports. This would be okay because these areas will benefit from tariff-free trading with other EU states, whilst non-EU areas would be able to waive tariffs on imports from the EU and would benefit from loosened regulations and increased autonomy which would enable further trade with the rest of the world.

Please let me know your thoughts on this idea otherlad, and don't be insulting now. I've hit a vein of solid fucking gold here and I want to refine it in the smelting pot of britfa.gs /pol/.
