    Or fighting tigers in Panpantan. Or steering a paddle steamer up the trent with a David Niven face mask on. Or flying a sopwith pup over East Midlands Airport blindfolded.

    Or sitting in a bedsit in Derby

    Royal Mail vote to go on strike on the run up to Christmas.

    Should be a good excuse to get the Sopwith Pup out to aid in all those extra parcels we'll have to deliver this year, especially to Nanpantan, where all the rich folk live.

    Looking on the bright side I should be able to afford a new mask, this David Niven one is really getting on my tits now, think I might go for a speccy four eyed twat look next, might make me look a bit intelligent.

    Is this a good thing?

    Irrespective of your views on ER - whether you agree about their central claim or about their political strategy - should the police be banning protests?

    A slippery slope?
    Been happening for years, since the Stop the City marches.
    I’m surprised it’s gone on this long tbh.

    I understand people are pissed off they can’t commute and earn their dollars and the rest of it but this is serious business. Long term. There should be support for the protesters if anything.

    The thing is though, the protests this time were far more heavily managed by the police than they were back in August and the amount of disruption to transport was visibly less as most protesters were herded into Trafalgar Square after only a few days of what is supposed to be two weeks of campaigning, yet here we are only at the start of the second week and even the Trafalgar Square site has been "moved on".

    Yes, people can moan all they like that it is stopping people getting to work and earning a living but in 99.9% of road closures it hasn't stopped anyone getting to work, just delayed them somewhat. It certainly hasn't stopped the underground working, or the trains, or planes (bar one incident).

    Sadly, it seems that protesting over the biggest issue to face mankind ever is being quashed as quickly as possible this time, not because of the congestion it causes, or the loss of earnings to the countries economy, but because the powers that be are finally waking up to the fact that the electorate do "have a backbone" and that worries them greatly.

    Anything but the truth eh? How about grassing the yardies in a court case. That really was one of your best ones.

    Default A week in politics

    Fair play to Jeremy Corbyn, he’s doing a better job of doing in the Labour Party than any Tory leader in history.

    Read elsewhere she was about to be deselected for being a Zionist that supported the oppression on Palestine, Corbyn is allegedly ridding the party of these people.

    You don’t know what or who to believe.

    She was up for deselection I believe. Not sure why though. Redemption probably knows more about it.

    My MP Diana Johnson is currently campaigning against her potential deselection.

    And most of those "workers" probably voted for Brexit too.

    It's really a hard-left thing. But it has overtones of anti-semitism because she is Jewish and a bigwig in Labour Friends of Israel.

    But if she had nothing to do with Israel and she wasn't Jewish, the same people would be campaigning to get her deselection.

    But she is those things, and those issues are present.

    The Washington Post went with "austere religious scholar at helm of ISIS dies at age 48"

    ...which led to tweet of the day:
