The government knows exactly what they are doing by introducing photo ID checks at polling booths. There’s never been any serious concerns about voter fraud in the UK, this is purely about eliminating the votes of people who don’t have a passport or driving licence and can’t spare £30-£75 to get one.

20 years ago there would have been outrage, now everyone is too obsessed with Brexit to even notice.

“….Over the next six days, most observers expect that clarity over whether a deal can be done – or if an extension might be plausible – will finally arrive. Here are the key moments ahead:

Monday:

The Queen’s speech, outlining the government’s plans for legislation, will include details of the withdrawal agreement bill, to be voted on if the EU agrees to a Brexit deal this week…

Tuesday

MPs debate the Queen’s speech, which can take up to five days before a vote is held. The chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, will meet EU ministers before the European council summit on Thursday. Agenda papers say he will discuss the “state of play regarding Brexit”.

Thursday

The EU summit begins in Brussels. Johnson and his team will attend, but it may already have become clear by that point whether a deal is doable…

With parliament not scheduled to sit on Friday, Thursday would be the government’s last chance to table a motion scheduling a Saturday session in the House of Commons.

Friday

The EU summit continues with Brexit talks, which is the last item on the agenda – and may turn its attention to the length of a potential extension.

Saturday

The first time the Commons meets on a Saturday since the Falklands war has been labelled “super Saturday”. Johnson will either present an EU-backed Brexit deal or set out his next steps.

Under the terms of the Benn act, Johnson should write a letter to the EU requesting an extension if parliament has not approved a Brexit deal by 11pm.”

EU is connecting Finland with Malta in a bid to reduce environmental impact of goods transport. 

To build this, Europeans have to built the longest sea tunnel in world, as well as the longest tunnel in the world.

“If Jeremy Corbyn took power in a caretaker government, he might not give it back blah blah Russia blah.”

Yeah remember when Corbyn did a dodgy deal with the DUP to stay in power? Remember when he suspended parliament?Remember when he kept trying to force through the same Brexit deal repeatedly? Remember when he threatened to break the law to get his way?

valarhalla:

So, Boris Johnson wrote an essay in which he talked about the Sistine Chapel and then said : “There is nothing like it in Muslim art of that or any age, not just because it is beyond the technical accomplishment of Islamic art, but because it is so theologically offensive to Islam.”

NOT TO MENTION the fact that the prohibition against direct images in Islam was actually the reason for the development of the incredible advances in higher mathematics of the Islamic Golden Age because they were required to create these structures. The Islamic World basically took the ban on images as a “hold my beer” thing and created an entire artistic culture based on mathematics and architecture where art and science fed into and glorified each other, 700 years before the Italian Renaissance.
