Martin Ashford has been in the desert only eating Taylor's skin flakes.

Where is the old devil? I thought he'd have been omnipresent with the Taylor rumours.

If they went on sale last Friday it will be 40 days.

It’s a round number so makes a degree of sense I suppose.

He popped up over in the BST thread to say he’s got gold circle (of course he has, as if it was ever in doubt).

Bit weird though. 50 would seem a more likely number if it was days, maybe 4 weeks or 1 month? But I know nowt of such things.

I googled 40 days and 40 nights ... All it came up with was a shit film ... no reference to Martin whatsoever ...Im disappointed 

Ah, a wee biblical reference. The product of a Catholic education. Martin isn't the Messiah though, he's just a very strange, but lovable boy.

Did my postal vote last week. Dreading Friday morning and the chaos of the rest of that day. Supposed to be my Xmas party with work and I can't see there being much Xmas cheer. I am still slightly hopeful though. Hopeful that people will see some sense and see the shitstorm there has been for 10 years. 

If not i'll need some form of a Glasto announcement to cheer me up.

We've got our work night out tomorrow. My plan is to head home before the exit polls come out as there's some people I don't really want to be around assuming it's as expected. 

Friday will be horrible. In the office with a hangover and a Tory majority (most likely). Might have to work the afternoon from home!

The woman I share my office with is a closet Tory, which completely boggles the mind since we work in social care. At the moment it seems the best we can hope for is another hung parliament and another few years of parliamentary gridlock.

 

I honestly don't want to think about what will happen if theres a Tory majority. Just doesn't bare thinking about

When Boris's then majority of one walked off and sat down with the Liberal Democrats, I turned to the girl next to me at work and said 'oh, there's going to be a general election'. She replied 'What's a general election?'

Yesterday I asked her who she is going to vote for. She replied 'Boris Johnson'.

Sorry state of affairs. Media has a lot to answer for.

Nail on head. I asked her why. She said she didn't want Corbyn to get in. I said why don't you like Corbyn. She said loads of reasons (then didn't name any of them).

The amount of people who say they don't want to vote for Corbyn, yet end up getting Labour on a 'vote for policies' quiz, media have done a hell of a good job smearing him

I am going to stay out of this politics talk, to not cause a full debate, but I will try change the subject.

I have been listening to Taylor and Kendrick to try get into them, and I can report that I am beginning to enjoy Taylor especially her most recent album Lover, which is a worry if predictions end up been correct and Noel will be against her on The Other stage as I am a big Noel fan, but I have seen him a few times before...whereas Taylor would be new territory for me. I have had her other albums on shuffle as well, and there are some songs I like there but as I am working I don't look at the names of them, but at least I know if I was to see her I would enjoy it

However when it comes to Kendrick, once again I have had him on shuffle but only found 2 songs I like, which not knowing a lot about Kendrick I believe are 2 of his bigger songs King Kunta and Swimming Pools? Whether I need more time to get into I don't know, but will continue to listen to him. One thing I have thought though is after looking at liver performances of both artists, I don't see the appeal of Kendrick Live and haven't watched one which I thought looked good, am I missing something, maybe its because I don't listen to rap/hip hop at all really and have never been to any gigs of a rap or hip hop artists but I can't see what makes it good live...does anyone care to share, I am open to suggestions of songs and live performances to watch to try change my mind, and if that doesn't work I guess I will have to realise it's just not for me

Jez has baggage, shit loads of it. 

It was always going to cause him problems, and was why he was a bad choice as leader.

Nail on head (again). I've got two mates who are fairly politically engaged and hate Johnson/Brexit but have both told me in the past few days they won't vote Corbyn because of the AS issue.

I don't disagree but the same can be said of BoJo, out of interest who would you go for as leader? Feel like Starmer could do a job after the inevitable Tory landslide on Friday

I reckon we mostly lean to the left here but I think you should create a efestivals exit poll CF.

nope, nothing of similar level.

If you're young you might not get this, but (for example) his links to the IRA and his support for their ultimate aim at the time of the Brighton bombing is not the sort of thing that everyone can forgive.

But also his unilateralism; his anti-Westernism; standing side by side with Hamas; his support for 70s-style trade unionism; etc, etc, etc. All of the things the leftish clique he inhabits supports, where each one is outside of the mainstream view.

Just one of those things make him unvotable to some people. The accumulative effect is significant.

This really shouldn't be a surprise. All of this was raised for why he was a bad idea for leader before he became leader.
