I hope he dies having a massive shit from eating too many burgers. He's never going to get impeached.

Comment I spotted on a Yahoo news story about the UK telling the EU to keep daylight savings time shifts...

Space was also invented by the British in 1869, when Alexander MacHovercraft needed somewhere to store his cutlery.

Oh god. One of the reasons I'm dreading leaving the EU is because of the inevitable campaign that will follow to set UK time permanently to GMT (even though basically no-one uses the term GMT). So we'll get to enjoy 3am sunrises in the summer, but lose light evenings forever. But, hey, BRITISH AND GOD SAVE THE QUEEN AND *dies*

Don't worry. You'll soon have another British Empire that the sun never sets on.

Is the UK going to invade the oceans, then? "This is all ours now! We've planted a flag!"

Imagine all the fishing rights you'll have then.

Nice to see even the Guardian this morning not understanding what happened in the Commons last night. Yes, nothing got a majority. That wasn't the plan. It was to see what might be palatable. People's vote did a lot better than expected. CU almost secured a majority. Had parties actually allowed free votes, everything from Labour's plan, Boles's CM2, and revoke as a last resort may have passed too. If this gets to a second day on Monday, it'll be interesting times. (Tomorrow, reportedly, May will have another crack at getting her deal through. She should just weld a referendum to it and be done with it. That would almost certainly pass now.)

So is choosing the name "Change UK" (or "Change.org"!) supposed to be ironic?  iIs it all part of the new politics where you accuse your opponents of doing the very thing you are doing and vice versa?

Change.org have already stated they are consulting solicitors.  What a car crash of a party limited company.
