  1. The UK Supreme Court ruled the suspension of Parliament was unlawful. Parliament back to work tomorrow. Boris is toast.
  2. Protests... London Parliament Square, from 5pm Birmingham Victoria Square, 5.30pm Liverpool St George’s Plateau, 5.30pm Milton Keynes Station, 6pm Chester Town Hall, 7pm Manchester Albert Square, from 4pm Edinburgh The Mound, from 4pm (moving to Holyrood at 4.30pm) Cambridge Market Square, from 6pm Cardiff Aneurin Bevan Statue, from 6pm Durham Marketplace, from 6pm Bristol College Green, 5.30pm More being announced all the time.
  3. The shit is about to hit the fan. This amounts to a coup, pure and simple. Supporters of the government are saying that it is normal to suspend Parliament before starting a new session... true, but usually it is for 3-4 days. Boris is trying to stop Parliament from sitting for 5 weeks. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/aug/28/pms-plan-to-suspend-parliament-aimed-at-evading-scrutiny-of-mps A petition was started this morning against such a suspension, and is currently getting over 2000 signatures a minute! https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/269157?fbclid=IwAR1KDK7ZgdwoxNNi-yQHD0ujwEHu_2JZFQFbuUDpgfPiRT-h91WPVTHwSx0 There are plans to demonstrate in Parliament square this evening. There are also plans for a ‘People’s Parliament’ to sit in Church House. A legal challenge to the suspension will be heard tomorrow. There are also calls for a general strike.

  4. Over on Era, one of the devs said it looks EXACTLY the same as on Xbox, no graphical compromises at all. The trailer looks beautiful. Edit, just saw you made a thread whilst I was posting this!
  5. Excellent article in The Guardian today about the Genesis / Megadrive: https://www.theguardian.com/games/2019/aug/16/sega-genesis-at-30-mega-drive-console-modern-games-industry Saddens me to see what became of Sega, although they seem to be doing better now than a few years back.
  6. Great article by ITV’s political editor Robert Peston today. He is convinced we face an imminent General Election. https://www.itv.com/news/2019-08-14/philip-hammond-and-boris-johnson-agree-that-brexit-talks-are-dead-robert-peston/?fbclid=IwAR0nu3zvTuxUzezYwFbDz_YhlJ4QDkTyiX2sMhNrCt0hdZJJQKcTAJuML4Q
  7. Had this on the Wii, it wasn’t bad, but I don’t think I ever got past the 3rd or 4th stage. Will pick this up in a 70% off sale 6 months after it comes out maybe...
  8. I watched the first couple of episodes. Wasn’t impressed, not worth my time to watch any more. Why is the crew of an important space mission made up of utter Bellends? I wanted them all to die.
