  1. Lady GaGa has been confirmed as half time entertainment at the superbowl, have we had any other Superbowl acts other than Coldplay? I'm wondering if some Chinese rumour scenario has had her confirmed to appear at the same event Coldplay did - and people assume it's Glastonbury, rather than the Superbowl
  2. https://www.bindmans.com/uploads/files/documents/Article_50_final_corrected_and_unredacted_version.pdf is this, forinstance, common knowledge? This was well known to Parliament before the Bill was enacted. In a House of Commons Library Briefing Paper (No.07212, 3 June 2015) it is said, at p. 25: “[The Bill] does not contain any requirement for the UK Government to implement the results of the referendum, nor set a time limit by which a vote to leave the EU should be implemented. Instead, this is a type of referendum known as pre -legislative or consultative, which enables the electorate to voice an opinion which then influences the Government in its policy decisions... The UK does not have constitutional provisions which would require the results of a referendum to be implemented.”
  3. it was more this that I found thought provoking, the release of the government's up to now redacted reasoning, "Those who were unsettled by the government’s insistence on its defence being kept secret will now be surprised by the contents, including submissions that Brexit has nothing constitutionally to do with the Scottish and Northern Ireland devolved governments, that parliament ‘clearly understood’ it was surrendering any role it might have in Brexit by passing the EU Referendum Act, that it has no control over making and withdrawal from treaties and that individuals can have fundamental rights conferred by acts of parliament stripped away if and when the executive withdraws from the treaties on which they are based."
  4. Article 50 - gets legal block - must go through parliament - heading for a soft Brexit https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/sep/28/government-must-disclose-legal-arguments-article-50-procedure-peoples-challenge?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
  5. some things never change, good to see Ozil still can't shoot straight - is he wanting away by any chance?
  6. what's going on with the homeless people in California? - seems to be an epidemic, my sister in law flew out there - says it's noticeable there's a massive influx of rough sleepers. That's probably 5 people without a TV (or a vote)

  8. I think they've worked out if the electorate can swallow the lies of the Brexit campaign they will swallow anything - bring on an election of confabulous pledges, and promises to do the impossible. It won't matter if you're an MP you can promise whatever you like and people will believe it. It's like some crazy new religion. They always say we are a few years behind the States - have you heard the whoppers they're hooking the electorate with there?
  9. wore boots (and at time gaitors) all weekend this year.

  11. I don't get what CoS are doing, Lollapallooza drop hints making it unlikely they would be playing Coachella (assuming Lollapallooza have them as an exclusive) however that would mean the signs would be for DP to play a Festival Republic date in the UK (as they are tied into Leopallooza Germany)
  12. my least favourite album, where as i loved Birthday Party but then I was a Cave loving goth in the 80s. I've been revisting Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus and it's currently up there with Henry's Dream /me goes to sit in the corner
  13. sunday
  14. one of my faves of the early Cave era - I can smell the dry ice of Goth night Tuesdays every time i hear it
  15. The Cure from Bestival are on C4 tonight
