    Brexit: The Official Thread

    Meh, god knows what happens now. I don't think the Maybot does either.

    Brexit: The Official Thread

    And The Maybot makes a statement saying.... absolutely bugger all. How ironic that she keeps saying that we must proceed in the national interest, when every government analysis says that any version of Brexit is damaging. This stupid woman (a phrase I hope Corbyn actually did say) is in total denial. "It is my duty to deliver on the British people's instructions" a) Just what were those instructions, Maybot? Chequers? Canada? Norway? Unicorns? 350M for the NHS? Blue Passports? b) Just how the hell are you planning to do that now? c) It's actually only about 35% of the country who actually voted for this (turnout considered).

    You misinterpreted my JP quote... Ah, gotcha. That's now twice that May has effectively used taxpayers' money to buy power.

    I thought I heard earlier that there were nowhere near enough Labour MPs to win it, and that it would rely on some Tory rebels. I guarantee it! Ugh, I'm getting so sick of self-righteous, smug Brexiters being interviewed outlining the purely technical process by which we have the irrevocable will to leave the EU. If I had to make a decision and was faced with the same margin that May just won by, I would ignore the result and make my decision using some other criteria. Because that result indicates a split, and nothing more.

    Wow. Got that wrong! Means a lot of Tories don't like their own government. It's a Brexit-style majority all over again. With a winning margin of just 19 she can't possibly consider that a 'victory'. Now that a GE is ruled out, will Corbyn finally endorse a second vote? It's just been pointed out by the BBC that if the DUP hadn't supported her, she'd have lost by one vote. The maybot continues to buy her power.

    Watching PMQs today was especially cringeworthy. May is in total denial that her deal has been obliterated.

    Only 20? I reckon May's going to win this spectacularly. Assuming the total number is 600, I'm going to guess about 500 nayes. Bercow's started the process so we'll know in a few mins.
  8. I realised that a version of the Main Title I've had for about 15 years is the Prague re-recording. The string statement at the end is slower and richer than the score version. The Erich Kunzel version of Re-Entry and Splashdown also works very well as a more concert-like presentation, omitting the more dramatic/tragic-suggestive section.
  9. The bit at 12:42 onwards is becoming a current Powell favourite moment. I'd love to know what's happening on screen. This is sounding good! (The song not so much - could they not have used one of Powell's melodies?)

    I interpret it as the former. I think there's a very real chance he'd win a GE given the government's scandalous track record.
  11. That wouldn't surprise me - I have old versions of edits and album covers lying around all over the place. Although obviously I don't do it professionally, in which case I'd expect to be a tad more organised.
  12. But don't LLL and Varese post artwork too? It would surprise me greatly if it were something that cost the labels so much that receiving one complaint about an incorrect upload causes them to reconsider. @Jay yeah my comments are directed at Roger's quotes. I agree 100%,
  13. 'No one pays for the graphics'? Huh? The graphics that go on the CD booklet that's sold to us?
  14. Ah ha, so they did indeed post unfinished versions. This one looks great! Surely they have the finished cover art to put on their website... clearly someone made a mistake here and put a draft version on. 'endless harping'? A few comments about how something is unusually wrong with the cover art? All respect to Roger, but a mistake was made here and deserves a mention.

    If nothing else, it proves that delivering Brexit isn't as simple as some Brexiters want to think it was. A good friend of mine said 'I wish they'd just get on with it' and I value our friendship too much to quiz him about exactly what 'it' is.

    Either one will mean extending Article 50. Although I'd vastly prefer a 2nd vote over a GE.

    Hehehehe. Defeated by 230. That's really bad. F**k you Maybot!
  18. I love the cue-by cue analysis you've done. Particularly, it answers a question I had when the sessions leaked - I couldn't find the Typhoon Warning cue and as pointed out it's actually heavily edited from the end of Docking. Until that point a little bit of me thought a minor cue was missing.
  19. If it were a proof of concept to agree on the layout, you wouldn't bad an eyelid.
  20. That's a really nice article Also, has to be re-emphasized, the moon cover as posted above, with my current monitor the cutout around the logo couldn't be more blatant if they tried. I'm astonished that found its way onto a commercial product.

    Classic Brexiter argument - deal or no deal. Nope, it's deal, no deal, or the status quo.

    I don't mean it in the sense of replacing her. I just want her to get the message loud and clear that her deal is a load of crap and that we need another public say.

    It seems to me that a second vote has been advocated and defended in just about every single other circumstance other than updating 'The Will Of The People' regarding Brexit. It's obvious why - Brexiters rejoice at the wafer thin majority they achieved and are terrified that The People might undo the result now that the truth emerges that most of their arguments are racist at worst, and scapegoating at best. The hypocrisy on display here is legendary. I'm hoping upper 100s, preferablly 200+. I want to see The Maybot absolutely crushed.

    Oh man, it's like watching cinema when JoB interviews a prominent Brexiter.
