A Fundamental Problem with Twitter

Twitter Logo
Possibly about to fly into a window.
I've not written much on here lately. There's a few reasons, mainly due to doing a lot of extra hours at work, but also because I've fund myself spending more and more time on Twitter (as @66ALW99). However, I've been finding it more and more infuriating lately, and here's why..

Labour Leadership Stuff Part 2

A wall of beige.

In the last post, I waffled on about why a load of people are fed up with politics and why Jeremy Corbin got elected as Labour Part Leader. In this post, I'm going to waffle on about what's happened since.

Labour Leadership Stuff

I've been a tad busy lately, but over the last few days, I've managed to catach up on a lot of stuff I've had sitting waiting for me on BBC iPlayer. The last one was a Leader's debate thing on the Victoria Derbyshire show.
A Victoria Derbyshire, yesterday
Now, I'll warn you now, that this is going to be a pro-Corbyn post. But not rabidly so.

XCOM 2 Tactics and Tips

I meant to write this a while ago. I meant to do lots of things a while ago, but I'm a lazy bum. Today, however, the stars have aligned and my laziness is in harmony with my urge to drink tea while sat at the keyboard.

First off, this is not a walkthrough. Walkthroughs are one step away from getting someone to play the damn game for you. What follows are tips.

UK - What the Shit Just Happened?

Full disclosure - I was firmly in the Remain camp. Having said that, I'll try and keep this fairly unbiased, despite the fact that everyone who disagreed with me was wrong.

The result of the UK's EU referendum came as quite a surprise. Even most of the people voting Leave didn't seem to expect to actually win. I ended up staying awake until about 7am, by which time it was clear which way the results were going to go. While "my side" didn't win, I'm not bitter. There doesn't seem to be much point - the votes have been cast, there's no choice but to accept it.

Having had a day or so to give things a bit of thought, I think it's useful to actually look back at just how and why the Remain camp lost. The more I think about it, the more I think that the seeds for this result were sown over decades, not just over the course of the campaign.
