I have a chemtrail/flat earther friend. Or should I say 'had'- I had to unfriend her on Facebook because some of the more outlandish conspiracy theory stuff was coming from some really far right or ultra religious sources.
She's a hippy type so I don't know if she just doesn't bother checking her sources, or just doesn't care.
Back on the Brexit track, I'm astonished, dismayed and bewildered how messy this has become. Today, the government lost three votes, one of which was on contempt of Parliament. Does this mean Parliament will lurch from side to side until everyone loses their heads or does it mean remaining in the EU is inevitable?
Labour wants to defeat Teresa May and hold a general election or, failing that, another referendum. This is not the time to be loyal to the Conservative party because the conservatives couldn't possibly have made a worse mess.
Was there never any discussion about Northern Ireland before the referendum? It seem to be a big obstacle. What do the brexiteers who want a "hard brexit" or "no deal" want, a hard border between Northern Ireland and Eire? Have they forgotten "the Troubles"?
We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
There was a discussion about Scotland breaking away from the union and rejoining the EU, which many of us thought was a serious possibility. (And also London breaking away but that was never a serious consideration.) But I think Northern Ireland was an after thought.
