Zammo couldn't even spell Brexit.
I’d rather watch Zammo v Danny Dyer in a quiz than a Brexit debate
I'd rather watch Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks.
I saw Mick McManus v Big Daddy at Butlins?

I saw Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks at the Hexagon in Reading back in the day. The thing that sticks in my mind were all the old biddies hitting Giant Haystacks with their handbags as he made his way to the ring.

I don't know if it's the most boring the brexit story or the poll on the worst songs of the Clash. :meh: :huh:

Would be curious if any of our UK locals had a snap analysis in the wake of the local election results. From this side of the Atlantic, seems like a moderate loss for Labour, a total bloodbath for the Tories, and obviously a great result for the Lib Dems and, to a lesser extent, the Greens.

It's interesting to me that the Lib Dems (who I tend to loathe) seemed to make most of their gains at the expense of the Conservatives, while Labour seemed to mostly get pecked enough around the edges by third parties/independents rather equally.

Thoughts on what it all means and where the parties go from here? And as it relates to Brexit?

Addendum: Oh, and nice to see UKIP get absolutely shanked.

I can't really add anything at this stage as to how you've summed it up Flex. These local elections don't hold a great deal of sway until much further down the line. Voters are lethargic when it comes to these local elections and are sick and fed up with the total clusterfuck of Brexit.

Can't add much to that. Disgruntled semi-racists have made a slight dent but the real battles are up ahead.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
