Yesterday he tweeted support for the Lib Dems (snigger).

Today: "Brexit will now happen. The British people have confirmed their referendum decision of 2016. The EU must now focus on building a new close, fair and lasting partnership with Britain. It is in our common interest."


Change of tone. Now he knows that we have serious people in charge, not the May Amateur Hour.

What has happened to twitter? It’s deathly silent. It’s like the zombie apocalypse. Has something happened?

I wonder what country was ranked just after Saudis. They must be upset, anyways.
On a side note, I mentioned the song Belgie recently at my workplace, although I can't remember why that happened!

It is not completely trivial to determine who creates this Spectator Index thing. One suggestion I came across suggested that it was US News and World Report, the creators of the massively damaging US college rankings. That makes some kind of sense, but I don't see any corroborating evidence, and their web site and Facebook page are sanitized. So, probably Putin.

Sharon Stone reveals she was blocked from the Bumble dating app

https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2019/1230/1103622-sharon-stone-reveals-she-was-blocked-from-a-dating-app/


Bumble is different to other dating apps as the woman must initiate contact by sending the first message.

A serious organization criticizes someone on Twitter for a joke tweet about a parody account in which everyone is in on the joke. The parody account is pretending to be a trans woman and ... I can’t explain it. It’s all too much. This is hilarious.

Can it be true that we have actually reached peak PC/woke? Is the Left on the run? I know it’s finally safe(ish) to admit to being Tory or pro Brexit.

Social media will go the way of smoking. In ten years there will be lawsuits from those suffering from mental-health problems thanks to SM. The likes of twitter will be accused of deliberately making their platforms addictive.

Response to Boris news...

UK right-wing twitter: Feeling sick, don't want to go to bed, prayers,...

UK left-wing twitter: All quiet, waiting for the first one to start the avalanche of cheering
