Raab on paving the way to blame the EU should we leave on WTO terms. No matter that Brussels did negotiate a deal (over two years) with his OWN PM. There is a deal. Raab et al just don’t like it.

This was such an exciting event to do. Great panel, great award winners including , Anna Burns and Patrick Radden Keefe. Plus I got to meet Orwell’s son and Celia Paget’s daughter.

The film definitely doesn't go for "Brrr".

I think he's a sanctimonious prick who often doesn't know what he's talking about is what I'm saying.

Eh, that's not what it is. He said he deliberately wouldn't read it because he wouldn't give money to TERFs and that's what I was responding to. I don't give a shit about precedents. I'm not setting laws.

Chu's not worth arguing with so I've deleted the tweet but I've come across plenty of virulent bigots who deserve the TERF tag and CCP isn't close to being one of them. He's throwing out a slur without evidence.

What are you talking about? He literally started the thread by linking to an excerpt on Longreads.

He seems pretty confident that she's a TERF based on an extract from it so I guess it would be lost on him anyway.

Here we all are diligently trying to remember not to call Johnson "Boris" while the tabloids merrily continue to call him "Bojo", which happens to be an insult from Back to the Future 2.

Yes, they're not distinct identities that would work for anyone.

So it's not normal to want to burn down the world because an album stream has expired too soon? Huh, OK.

I actually disliked the ending. I thought it was too much like a Tennant-era Doctor Who. For me it overshot catharsis and landed on sentimentality.
