Even amongst Tories she's considered to be authoritarian and something of a control freak.

The good thing about Theresa May is that she identified her own party as the "nasty party". The bad things about her are everything else.

Default Re: Brexit EU referendum polling stations.

I saw a comment that May had found a note left in the cabinet office that said, "Boris Johnson: F. off!" and misinterpreted it to mean that he should be appointed to lead the Foreign Office.

Boris on the Turkish president:

There was a young fellow from Ankara
Who was a terrific wankerer
Till he sowed his wild oats
With the help of a goat
But he didn’t even stop to thankera.

Boris on Hillary Clinton: ...like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital.

Boris on Obama: his attitude to Britain might be based on his “part-Kenyan” heritage and “ancestral dislike of the British empire”.

Boris on Africans: crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies with their watermelon smiles

He's made disparaging comments about other foreigners too - but he is charming and quick witted, so perhaps he'll be able to laugh it off when he gets to meet them for diplomatic negotiations...

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Minister, Britain has had the same foreign policy objective for at least the last 500 years: to create a disunited Europe. In that cause we have fought with the Dutch against the Spanish, with the Germans against the French, with the French and Italians against the Germans, and with the French against the Germans and Italians. Divide and rule, you see. Why should we change now, when it's worked so well?
James Hacker: That's all ancient history, surely.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Yes, and current policy. We had to break the whole thing up, so we had to get inside. We tried to break it up from the outside, but that wouldn't work. Now that we're inside we can make a complete pig's breakfast of the whole thing: set the Germans against the French, the French against the Italians, the Italians against the Dutch. The Foreign Office is terribly pleased; it's just like old times.
James Hacker: Surely we're all committed to the European ideal.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Really, Minister.
[laughs]
James Hacker: If not, why are we pushing for an increase in the membership?
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well, for the same reason. It's just like the United Nations, in fact. The more members it has, the more arguments it can stir up. The more futile and impotent it becomes.
James Hacker: What appalling cynicism.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Yes. We call it diplomacy, Minister.

Default Re: Brexit EU referendum polling stations.

It would be interesting to see comparisons of elitism vs representation across a range of countries (and social mobility, which I don't see that this study actually measures, though it does identify obstacles).

As a card-carrying* member of the elite I naturally expect somebody else to search for such comparisons.

* College membership card so I can take guests into bits of the college closed to the plebs without hassle from the porters.

It really jumped out at me because a week or so back I was on another forum discussion about the UK referendum, and was watching a back and forth between a very well educated New Yorker (Who has UK ties) and a middle class English chap who isn't ordinarily a fucking idiot obtuse. The New Yorker made a number of points and I pulled one out of the pack and said 'This relates to Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc.' with a link to the Wikipedia page on that. The English chap proceeded to ignore the New Yorker he'd been debating with and pounced on the Latin with what seemed to me at the time a bizarre amount of bile. I new England was considerably more old school classist than out here in the colonies, but the hostile response to what's a fairly basic and easy to understand concept if he'd just read the damned link, just the intro would be enough, was very strange to my sum of life's experience. (I'm a Canuck, and thus straddle the line between having a picture of the Queen in most government offices and Schoolhouse Rock on the TV.)

From the Ministry of Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics.

The link between Brexit and the death penalty - BBC News

Quote:
"If you look at someone's class status and their income, and you try and use that to guess whether or not they voted Remain, it turns out it's not that much better than guesswork. It gives you around 55% accuracy, and obviously a guess would give you 50% accuracy," Westlake says.
Quote:
"If you look at attitudes to questions such as, 'Do you think criminals should be publicly whipped?' or 'Are you in favour of the death penalty?' - those things are much better predictors, and you get over 70% accuracy," he says.

The Brexit is a real pain in the ass. I want to go to every Brit who voted to exit the EU and give them an epic :backhand: to both sides of their faces.

Seriously, it's going to make international shipping a pain in the fucking ass. Until now, the UK has been the gateway to the EU. It made shipping goods to Europe relatively uncomplicated as once it cleared in London, it could be forwarded as a domestic shipment essentially. Once the exit from the EU is finalized, that will no longer be the case, most likely. Now we'll have to find a new gateway to Europe.

Fucking idiots. Seriously, I would not be surprised if a significant percentage of those who voted yes to the Brexit campaign never thought through the consequences of leaving the EU. In any case, I really just wanted to vent.
