Re: Theresa May calls snap General Election for June 8th

There is no concept of the prime minister or failing to pass legislation "dissolving parliament" anymore. Non-scheduled elections in the UK can only be held on a 2/3rds vote of the HOC, or a lost no-confidence vote. Besides those specific circumstances, May's government will stand for 5 y...

Re: Grenfell Tower Block Fire in London

I just wanted to know if the "burdensome job-killing regulations" that were supposedly a big reason the UK voted for brexit would have saved lives in this case.

Re: Grenfell Tower Block Fire in London

This is probably not a very tactful question to ask so soon after a tragedy, but I'm just curious.

What are the EU building fire safety codes?

Also, was this building built or updated to those codes, and if not why not?

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

One big reason for your winrate climbing is grinding, or rather not grinding. After several thousand games, most likely you have several tanks in your garage that you have already grinded past but kept because you actually like them. Playing tanks you hate (but have to grind past) is a good way to l...

Re: Portland Republicans considering using militia groups as "security" for public events.

I've been meaning to ask, what are "Antifa's"? All I've heard are the right's explanation of them, who are terrified of them (which makes me want to join, actually). What's the left wing explanation of them?

Re: Theresa May calls snap General Election for June 8th

So after the worst campaign in recent history run by the conservatives, Corbyn still could not deliver a parliamentary majority. It's not like multi-party parliamentary systems have anything but a cursory relation to he will of the people. Here's a video made after the last UK election: http://www....

Re: Theresa May calls snap General Election for June 8th

Jon Schwarz has the best line on this: https://twitter.com/tinyrevolution/status/872949826731880448 Leftists have to admit that Corbyn and Sanders's success has nothing to do with their platforms, they both just possess unstoppable charisma.

Re: Where can I find better anime?
