I don't think I've ever seen criticism of the content of the material on Facebook, just the funding. It's no worse than Cameron using taxpayer's money to give everyone a Remain propaganda brochure or when the Guardian used to run campaigns during the US elections to get British people to phone Americans and tell them why voting for Bush was wrong, but they tend to get a free pass from those who agree with the end goal.

/pol/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.

The problem for Britain is that anyone who might do a better job is too sensible to volunteer. I don't know if May is oblivious to her failure or if she's just putting on a brave face, but I'm not sure that standing aside would help us. Who'd take her place? Gove? Mogg? Corbyn? At least May is trying to avoid catastrophe, even if she's doing a piss-poor job of it.

In my book, trying to avoid catastrophe would be putting the vote when initially scheduled in November, taking the defeat, and then spending the next four months figuring out what to do about it. Playing chicken with the entire country isn't avoiding catastrophe. Far from it, it's a very good way of hastening it.

Would we really be in a substantially different position if MV1 had failed a little earlier? You can think about what to do next until the cows come home, but it won't make the Withdrawal Agreement any more negotiable or the ERG and DUP any more willing to compromise.

The fundamental blunder was invoking A50 to appease the tabloids; everything else is a consequence of deciding when to leave before we knew how to leave.

Four months is certainly better than two weeks. Having received the best offer you're going to get but finding it not good enough, you have two options, and "just ask again" isn't one of them.

The game does a dozen different things that wouldn't be too confusing on their own, but put together are so disorientating. For instance, there are 20+ tutorial videos, which is a bit rubbish, but whatever, but then trying to watch them with the intense, ambient drone rock that makes up the soundtrack is a bit too much. Then everyone talks to you like a N64 character for good measure.

Brilliant game but it's basically what happens when you trap a bunch of French veteran modders in a room with too much speed. They based the game off a tabletop RPG system that doesn't exist.

It's absolutely fucking mental and the game struggles to tell you anything. You can hack into everything: enemies, yourself, co-op partners. You can go insane and start halucinating enemies and it'll stop you using your weapons. You can teleport inside enemies and make them explode. You can have 64 players on a mission.

The story is insane, the translation is so bad I thought a dialog option with a random npc was a joke but it ended up adding in optional levels and changing the endgame drastically.

Going off my crap memory one of genes is simply better than the others so you just use it for all three slots; can't remember if it's because one of the stats it is weak on is pointless or if you have a reasonable chance of a roll that'll give you really high stats.

>A homeless man who stole a purse and a phone from victims of the Manchester Arena attack has admitted theft.

>Chris Parker, 33, was initially dubbed a hero after claiming he comforted a seriously injured girl. CCTV footage played to Manchester Crown Court showed him wandering between stricken victims. He kept returning to injured Pauline Healey, whose granddaughter lay dying nearby, before leaning over her and taking her handbag to steal her purse.

I don't get why bleeding heart do-gooders bleat on about the homeless. They're all scratters who are on the streets through choice, usually because they choose not to stay in a hostel as they know they wouldn't be allowed to do drugs there.

Probably multiple factors. The judge in the video states that he was not found to have any mental health problems, but to me the fact that someone is capable of a murder without feeling regret is in itself a dysfunctional state of mind.

It could also just be plain ignorance and callousness. People generally, but especially young people (moreso males), can be senselessly violent. It may really be a case of not being fully emotionally aware of what he's done. You can't force someone to value human life.

There is this cunt who's onto fucking up the schedule for everyone. Yesterday he literally exploded, hysterically yelling that the March schedule is utter shite - after about 2/3 of March has passed, right. He then proceeded with 'correcting' it - which ironically included putting additional workdays for everyone except himself. After being told to fuck off with that by everybody else he decided to fiddle with the April schedule and made a 'better' version - again, with more workdays added.

My only consolation is that so far he's been a tiny minority that wants these changes. Unfortunately, apathy is big here so instead of telling the sod to piss off one more time the folks might just coast along and accept the alterations just so he would cease whining. I have no bloody idea what's in it for this person - he surely won't get paid more for self-afflicted overtime. Others have noted this as well, responding, 'If you like to work that much, we can give you more worktime'.

/boo/4741 The reason Art is so expensive is it is a tool for tax evasion
Rich people buy art at charity auctions for lower then it's appraised value.

let it 'appriciate' for a while and get it reapraised

Then they donate it to a charity for auction.

They then get to mark that as a charitable contribution which means they can off set it against their tax, and they get the value it was appraised at not the auction price.

Art is bought by next rich person at charity aution for 'less than it is worth'.


Art is usually unique so they can say it is priced whatever they want even if it is a scribble as long as it has an artist name they have massaged to mean something it can have a multi million price tag.

Pic related this painting is worth 300 million and I don't think it is purely because someone likes it that much.

It'll be exactly like real custard cream filling, but with a bit more oil/fat in it to make it spreadable.

Custard cream filling is literally just sugar and fat blended together, with some favouring. It's probably quite nice, like eating icing.

I am interested in understanding the appeal of eating icing.

Also, could anyone experienced in enjoying buttercream and the gritty stuff on top of carrot cakes please enlighten me as to the reasons for their existence.

It's carbs and fat combined, the two things our cavemen brains crave more than anything, and reward us for eating it with huge hits of dopamine. It's not that difficult to understand.

But the pathway to pleasure is more easily obtained via more pleasurable textures and accessible methods.

You can get yer liver to metabolise your own cannabinoids by gorging on chocolate, or opioids by swigging some habanero tabasco, for example.

You can't even get cuffed for it!

That sounds amazing. Is it a nice bluey-marpley colour? I'd love to be disappointed by that.

No, you should use straight PVCU pipes, using myriad elbow joints to create a climbing frame of pipework which will eventually fail and micturate upon your archive of Knave and Fiesta mags, soft lad.

Strictly's Stacey Dooley SLAMMED by MP for her Comic Relief work

Strictly Come Dancing champion and TV documentary maker Stacey Dooley has been slammed by Labour MP David Lammy, who has criticised her for her trip to Uganda for Comic Relief.

The 31-year-old investigative reporter had travelled to Africa to film a documentary for the charity but the MP for Tottenham has accused Stacey of perpetuating "tired and unhelpful stereotypes".

Stacey had shared pictures on her social media from Uganda, with one snap showing her posing with a young child while another showed her during filming ahead of Red Nose Day.

Mr Lammy, who has been the MP for the north London borough since 2010, said on Twitter that Stacey was reinforcing unhelpful stereotypes about Africa. He said: "The world does not need any more white saviours. As I've said before, this just perpetuates tired and unhelpful stereotypes. Let's instead promote voices from across the continent of Africa and have serious debate."

Mr Lammy said his issue was not personal with Stacey and that he does not question her "good motives". Instead, he said he had a problem with 'British celebrities' being flown out to Africa by Comic Relief to make films which send "a distorted image" of the continent and perpetuate "an old idea from the colonial era".

>A neo-Nazi terror suspect entered a "Miss Hitler" beauty contest in a bid to attract new members to a far-right extremist group, a court has heard. Alice Cutter is alleged to have won the competition organised by National Action after taking on the nickname Buchenwald Princess in reference to the Nazi death camp.

To be fair, I'd have voted for her. I'd preserve the future of the white race with her, IYKWIM.

Thanks, now I'm clued up on all the latest far-right workout hashtags, this is exactly how I wanted to spend my Friday.

She was a member of National Action and personally involved in their recruitment. NA are a prescribed organisation who advocate militant daft woggery in the UK.

Of course, it's all just banter and memes, so they're not really a thread, *wink wink* *nudge nudge*.

I think OP might want us next week which works better for me as I should really do something with the bird this weekend. I've got fuck all ideas for a date, anyone have suggestions? She's all the way down in Croyden so I'm at a loss

It's actually a bit worrisome as we have some new people starting at work in the coming weeks and I can just see him complaining about me on here.

Don't worry, we'll do Cafe Oto one day. I for one rather enjoy shit music.

I suppose it could work but I was aiming to get away from the pub this time which is precisely what makes this difficult. My thinking was more taking her all the way to Cutty Sark to see Pirates of Penzance as a last ditch option.

It breaks down into roughly one-third things I'll achieve simply by turning up, one-third things I was planning on implementing anyway and one-third things that are largely outside of my control and depend on the overall performance of the company.

Would the lump sum payment be conditional on each of the targets being achieved?

Depending on whether they know their arse from their elbow at your work or not, the safer bet may be to opt for the ad hoc payment and then just trusting yourself to transfer it into a different account or hide it under the floorboards until you are ready to splash out.

Not just sales people. I took a job with about ten grand tied to profit targets, and about a month into the job they raised those targets significantly - a 10% raise in GP targets. For context they were essentially asking me to find an extra 30k a week in profit, overnight.

I don't think they moved the goalposts specifically to fleece me, they just were being daft with their projections. But nonetheless it was basically a pay cut so I left. The sad irony being I probably capable of hitting that target, that sort of thing has been the foundation of my career. If they'd paid me the extra ten grand as regular salary I'd have happily done it, or at least tried very hard to do it. But instead I wandered off within my probation period.
