    Coincidentally, ive been rewatching the Stewart Lee hating on Top Gear Satire bit just now. He ends the joke looking straight to camera and telling the Daily Mail to save the inevitable tedious string of emails and faux outrage that will result;that everyone in the audience knows its satire.

    Daily Mail did indeed write an outrage piece questioning if it was appropriate, no change there. But then i read the comments on the article, and checked out the upvotes and so on. 2009. Even Daily Mail comments section is relatively fair and balanced.

    Shows how far we have become radicalized in the last decade imo. How much nuance and understanding has been crushed. I was shocked.

    He was on This Morning a couple of days ago, so he's already had his hard-hitting interview from Phil and Holly.

    It will be a travesty if Count Binface doesn't unseat Boris Johnson.

    A UK diplomat in charge of Brexit at the British embassy in the US has quit.
    In her resignation letter, seen by US broadcaster CNN, Alexandra Hall Hall said she could no longer "peddle half-truths" on behalf of political leaders she did not "trust".
    She said she has become "dismayed" by the reluctance of politicians to "honestly" address the "challenges and trade-offs" involved in leaving the EU.

    The Foreign Office said it would not comment on details of her resignation.
    However, it did confirm Ms Hall Hall had resigned as UK Brexit Counsellor at the British embassy in Washington - a post which involves explaining the UK Brexit policy to US lawmakers and policymakers.

    In her letter, dated 3 December, she wrote: "I have been increasingly dismayed by the way in which our political leaders have tried to deliver Brexit, with reluctance to address honestly, even with our own citizens, the challenges and trade-offs which Brexit involves."
    She also criticised the use of "misleading or disingenuous arguments" and "some behaviour towards our institutions" by politicians, adding that "were it happening in another country, we would almost certainly as diplomats have received instructions to register our concern".

    Ms Hall Hall added: "It makes our job to promote democracy and the rule of law that much harder, if we are not seen to be upholding these core values at home."
    BBC diplomatic correspondent Paul Adams described her letter as "stunningly blunt".

    Ms Hall Hall, who is a former ambassador to Georgia and has worked in the diplomatic service for 33 years, did not name any specific politicians in the letter, but took aim at the current Conservative government.
    She wrote: "I am also at a stage in life where I would prefer to do something more rewarding with my time, than peddle half-truths on behalf of a government I do not trust."
    Ouch.

    Two topics...

    I haven't seen any discussion on how UK is sued in WTO for Brexit damages.
    a) by UK's friendly Commonwealth buddy, and one of the biggest partner UK will raise their trade after dropping the EU shackles, Australia.
    b) by their 'biggest' trade partner and the first to sign a trade deal with, the US of A.
    ... just another one from project fear reality.

    second, the latest Pie video is the angriest ever

    ... spoilered for the those who have a faint of heart watching a Pie video.

    Andrew Neil is a Brexiteer so you wouldn't want this obviously biased for Boris interview anyway.

    Good to see the Neo-Liberals being pushed out of their positions of power.

    You keep using that term as if you understand what it means. But it's not what you think it is at all.

    Hint: neo-liberals believe in unfettered markets.

    Goddambit Rodj, why did you have to open your big mouth and ruin it?

    Well, now it's out in the open, have you also been enjoying the way that he keeps blathering on about "Neo-liberalism" while passionately supporting everything about Neo-liberalism except that it's not racist or sexist?

    You are right yet the term 'anti-semitic' means anti-jewish.

    Neo-liberals believe in a lot of things. If I restricted them to unfettered markets only it would be a mistake.

    Don't worry, we can deal with that under GDP...oh.

    Meanwhile a Tory advisor walks into a protester at a hospital and all the media mouthpieces fall over themselves to report the Tory line of it being an 'attack' then fall over themselves again to retract as it turns out there was video of the incident.
