    what's happening in the UK

    For the past ten days politics in the UK have been totally mad.

    This link explains what's been happening. And yes, before you ask, you couldn't make this stuff up. It's true. God help us.

    It's like they're filming a bad political drama over there and forgot to tell... everyone... I wasn't surprised to see Farage leave, but I wonder why he didn't at least stay to see article 50 invoked... it's not like he's actually won with all the mess you guys have right now...

    My goodness. You know you're in dire straits when pollies start saying what they're actually thinking!

    why should I do all the hard shit for someone else, just to hand it over to them on a plate.

    It's truly amazing. But we're only a step behind - the Republican & Democratic conventions are coming up this month. They're sure to be the site of much drama and malarkey!

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Yeah, good lord. I'm kind of glad I'm Canadian and German. Canada came to its senses a few months ago and has been keeping its cool for most of the year (save the occasional stupid, pointless scandal here and there) and Germany is boring. I think that Germany's push for the status quo might bite it in the ass sometime soon and it's probably everything that's wrong with the EU, but I'd rather be boring than the UK right now, to be honest.

    Yes, times are rather worrying over here at the moment. I feel losing the plot is perhaps putting it kindly...

    I find it interesting that y'all are taking a conservative mindset here. It's usually my prerogative to argue against progressive activism on an economic basis. Like with raising the minimum wage.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    I don't know anything about how salaries are in the UK - is there a minimum wage?

    I don't usually care enough about politics to get the terms right... but I would say that the conservative side of this dilemma are the people who have been campaigning to leave the EU basiclly since they joined...?

    The EU is a Neoliberal and undemocratic nightmare. Ask Greece how EU austerity measures and the removal of their democratically elected leaders has gone. It's hilarious watching Liberals fall over themselves about a Democratic decision to leave a Union that is a bureaucratic mess in which workers and their trade unions have lost bargaining power. It is an undemocratic system in which trade deals are worked in secret and the poorer EU countries get exploited by more powerful member States such as France and Germany.
