Re: Grenfell Tower Block Fire in London

The tower's acquired its own conspiracy theory as well, claiming that everyone in the building died and the government's trying to hush it up. Maybe that's the real reason for the delayed Queens speech and DUP deal!!! In all seriousness though this is the government that can't get a deal done withi...

Re: Van Hits Mosque Crowd In London

Last I heard, the Mayor of London referred to it as such. No idea what the British government is calling it. But yeah, this is terrorism, obviously. As mentioned in the third paragraph of the OP article quote the UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd has said it was a terrorist act. It's also littered throu...

Re: Kerbal Space Program, Revisited.

Pro-tip: Shutting down your engines doesn't reset the staging. Been messing around with planes and an early successful design had 4 engines mounted on pylons under the wings.

It's not a given that it will happen. Just that Sturgeon is going to ask the Scottish parliament.

Maybe not chancellor as Gove has never struck me as a "money man" but deputy party leader for sure.

If they are confident in his economy handling skills it will be a relationship like Cameron and Osborne. If not then Like Cameron and Clegg, but without the seemingly abusive relationship.
