Just checked yougov and he's at 22% in the approval ratings.  Surely there's no way back from that?

And yeah, from slashing benefits for the most needy, through trying to make protesting illegal, to blithely opening the floodgates to a potential resurgence of Northern Ireland's troubles, the Tories are doing far worse things, but this is law breaking and a near-sociopathic sense of disregard for the sense of common good that the rest of us abided by.

I know he's not my PM but what his crowd does affects us too.

Intestinauts is good fun, but only Alan Moore could mix Boys from the Blackstuff with ET and make it work. Skizz for me. And the sequels weren't that bad.

Cradlegrave storms it for me, given that I think it's one of 2000ad's best stories ever.  A whole new genre - chav horror (I'm preparing to stand corrected by an avalanche of prior examples, and sorry to use the word 'chav' but it's how Skully describes himself and the other main characters).

You'll hear some mumbly weirdo who uses my name singing its praises on Eamonn's podcast.

I'll send you a PM later today or tomorrow. 

They haven't all been great, but some of them really were, so Anderson sails through.  Also, Brett Ewins' Anderson was quite pleasing to the eye during my formative years.

Speaking of psychoactives, I've tried mushrooms three times.

First time, nada. I'd have got more of a kick out of a can of shandy.

Second time, mostly nada. The world, the guys I was with - nothing changed. But the Moon - the Moon changed. I've never seen it look so bright, like a blob of mercury under a white spotlight, and it looked like it had rings around it, around the equator, from pole to pole, and at angles all around. And it had the most beautiful sky blue aura around it. But everything else was normal.

Third time, I just spent four hours giggling - which was fun but really quite disappointing. I mean, how are you supposed to explore the secrets of the universe when you can't stop laughing?

I haven't bothered since.

Cool mouse dream, though!

Haven't done them too many times, but I've had some very, very intense experiences.  Mostly good, but one very, very bad.

Brawn beats porn.  Which doesn't rhyme in my accent.

It's just occurred to me that M.A.C.H. 0 is a play on 'MACHO'.

Never thought of that.  I'm quite enjoying the series, though the Mandalorian set a very high bar and Boba doesn't really get close.  Wonder if we'll ever get to see anywhere but Tatooine?  For a place full of robots, giant slug crimelords, sand dragons and cyborgs, it's all getting a bit provincial and over-familiar for me, and I could do with a bit of interplanetary travel.

I kind of skimmed through Counterfeit Girl.  Probably should go back and read it., but I enjoyed Brit Cit Babes, again despite the title.  Kind of established Brit Cit's identity as a different kind of place from MC1, which Dave Stone took and ran with in Armitage.

Although it's just occurred to me that the whole atmosphere of BCB was very similar to that She Devils story by Wagner and McCarthy in one of the annuals.

His name was Robert Paulson

The penny finally drops - I see what you did there!

Seems like Meat Loaf has been around forever.  My first regular comic was Nutty, where one of the School Belles expressed a liking for Meat Loaf, to which her mate responds 'You would like him, 'cos he's fat, like you.'  Different times.

Loving this clickbait image from Channel 4 News:

Gie's a job! I can do that! I can have parties! That's easy, that is!


Cummings definitely has the Yosser look there, but I'm not sure who should be begging who for a job...

OK, I give in.  Some car chases in films are good.  One or two are very good.  Also, I can't believe no one's noticed a certain bike / van chase back in 2012, featuring a jacket that says 'drokk' on the back and a poster of our own poster, Joe Soap.  I fecking love that scene.

Alright, the Blues Brothers I'll make an exception for.   And yeah, Fury Road and indeed MM2 for that matter, though it's more the fighting and insane vehicle and character design I'm into there.

I haven't seen the Italian Job,t as soon as I posted I suspected someone might bring it up.

More a T1 guy than a T2 one, and the truck v bike thing wasn't really my favourite part, and the rest I haven't seen either.

I've always liked stories involving the Wally Squad - I wonder how it got its name?

Because its undercover judges have to dress and act like typical Mega-citizens - i.e. complete wallies.

Aye, it's a wee bit dated now - calling people wallies was the in thing when the Wally Squad got its name.  Though I don't think it was ever used across the Atlantic even back then, let alone 122 years into the future.
