    And no - that form of wording does not appear in the indictment.

    I know we're supposed to find anything the Guardian does sickening, but are you really pulling them up for not restricting their headline to the precise wording of the indictment?

    Theresa May at risk of Commons defeat as Labour shifts on Brexit

    Cut the filler and get to the real issues: the Cabinet were at Chequers for an awfully long time - didn't they get really hungry? Did they have to bring their own sandwiches? Did they order take-away pizzas? We want answers!

    Thank god for that.

    The only good thing you can say about this cavalcade of smug bullshit is that the first picture seems to be satirising the rest of the article: pretentious waffle.

    "We've already raised that $100k we opportunistically grubbed heroically called for to help us 'break the cycle of gun violence' via a y'know, totes different set of jolly holidays important articles calling for more gun control laws from our unique faboo liberal writers which you deffo won't have seen before. But we're going to leave the fund open for reasons."

    Aidan Moffat put it better than me, music is all about being picked up by major labels seemingly. Pure raging re his comments on Eugene from the Vaselines.

    They're raging btl about the dismissal of the mighty Melvins - rightly.

    On the rolling news thing they have a short piece about rough sleepers and the dangers they are currently facing. Directly underneath it is another piece entitled Let them eat potato, parsnip and porcini gratin ... folllowed by some Nigella Lawson bollocks.

    I agree, and not exclusive to the employed either. Anyone who's ever had a credit card or a mortgage ought to be able to cope with fractions in the percentage form. Money exchange of just about any sort requires arithmetical skills, or at least rewards those who can audit any automation.

    I agree with that article tbh. Times tables are symbolic for Tory “back to basics” bollocks; while obviously it’s useful to be able to multiply stuff out in your head casually, you can learn it quickly in jobs where it matters, and there shouldn’t be national tests on it. Also it has no relevance to actual maths at all. The article makes it clear that it’s not about numeracy but about surface rote learning.

    Full disclosure: I have to count out lots of times tables in my head. I’m generally pretty good at maths though.
