I'm struggling with this.  Are we seeing a surge in knife crime because of chicken boxes or something?  :lol:
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Maybe. Dunno. Not important. Whatever the political reason has been undermined by Neesy tagging Mike in a chicken related tweet.

It's associating knife crime with black people and their association with eating chicken.....  Would that story be put on a box in waitrose for example?

Never even registered that part of it. :lol:

I see it's just putting stories on chicken boxes though, they originally had no connection to knife crime.  Unless Mike is the reason we have knife crime.  Smoked far too early tonight. :bong:

EDIT:  Neesy beat my realisation process. :huff:

That'd wipe out Johnson's working majority wouldn't it?

Aye, probably why he hasn’t yet. Still be surprised, nearly always party first over anything.

So I've heard talk of BJ calling an election for the start of November, meaning parliament isn't sitting and can't stop no deal happening. Is there any way he can be stopped from doing it? Is there a vote in parliament for an election or can the PM just call it when they like?

This is basically the question everyone is grappling with. No idea is the answer.

FWIW I’m not convinced Boris really wants that, he would go down as possibly the most destructive PM in history.

Really? Just tried to book a train to Inverness, not picky, tried this weekend or three or four weeks away. Tried Friday then Thurs, coming back Sunday or Monday, and whatever I picked was still over 200 squid standard class. Almost cheaper to fly stopping off in Amsterdam.

f*** that. Rotters.
