Sometimes PorFavor's edits:

"Tidy up"

Sound to my ears like more than a passing suggestion.
I wonder if it's something to do with the habitual state of my living room.

"The pope, Mark Zuckerberg and U2 walk into Irish referendum"
Quote:
The results of Friday’s vote in Ireland on whether to repeal a near-complete constitutional ban on abortion will send tremors far beyond the Irish border.
Everyone from U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to Mark Zuckerberg has something to gain, or lose, depending on the outcome.

(I liked the headline, but deserves a better punchline)

"Ongoing game of Galileo chicken goes up a notch as the UK talks refunds"
Quote:
In a technical note, UK participation in Galileo (PDF), which is best read out loud in a high-pitched warbly voice, British officials again reiterated their position on the project.

https://news.sky.com/story/amp/uk-threa ... e-11384501
Quote:
The government is warning freezing Britain out of the satellite project could cause delays and harm future defence collaboration.

We'll have to spend £billions building a competitor to Galileo (seeing as everything now revolves around Brexit)

Far from an extra £350m a week, what the UK actually faces is a choice between the Brexit that Gove, Johnson and co want, or a fully funded NHS that works. Just for fun, ask yourself how another poll couched in those terms might go

"The North Korea summit farce makes it clear again: Trump is political Ebola"
Quote:
Given Trump’s now familiar mercurial behaviour, it’s possible all this could change tomorrow – even that the summit will be back on again. It depends, apparently, on the president’s mood. And this raises a much bigger question. How much longer can the international community pretend that having a narcissistic amateur running the White House is a tolerable or even manageable state of affairs? Just look at the global wreckage after 18 months of Trump.

"Trump calls latest statement from North Korea ‘very good news’
One day after calling off a June 12 meeting between himself and Kim Jong Un, Trump took a more conciliatory tone."
Quote:
“Very good news to receive the warm and productive statement from North Korea,” Trump tweeted. “We will soon see where it will lead, hopefully to long and enduring prosperity and peace. Only time (and talent) will tell!”

Afternoon all.

School first and then library all day is my excuse...and finding an old newspaper article about the demise of a sports ground 15 minutes before staff went home left me in a really good mood. Photos of microfilmed pages don't come out that well but they're readable. Now uploaded so I have an article to finish!

Quiet here today, innit.

Who wants to talk - about anything?

Surely no government body would slip out an important consultation on a Friday afternoon ahead of a bank holiday weekend followed by a week of school holidays and set the deadline as a week on Monday. That would never EVER happen. Oh! https://feweek.co.uk/2018/05/25/t-level ... taggering/

There's nothing to talk about #ZombieGovernment

Unless someone did a by-election round-up :twisted:

Final byelection of this week was today, result still awaited.

The review will appear in due course, as always :)

Another exit poll from Ireland has an even bigger YES vote, incredibly.

"Help, my lightbulbs are dead! How GDPR became bigger than Beyonce"
Quote:
Happy GDPR day! It isn’t quite Christmas, but this year you’ll probably get more emails about May 25 than you will December 25. So very many emails. In the two years since
Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was passed, an elaborate web of hype has been constructed.
