It's Boris Johnson
No, Really, We're actually SUPER FUCKED!
Also, now seems like a good time to point out that, since the turn of the millenium, only 1 new British Prime Minister has been chosen by the British Public. Blair retired and the Labour Party chose Gordon Brown to be their party leader and, by default, Prime Minister. Brown was so unpopular that he almost became the first man in history to never have never won nor lost an election, but he held on long enough... to lose an election, meaning David Cameron became Prime Minister. When the Ca-moron resigned following the Brexit defeat, Theresa May was chosen by the Conservatives (who have a really really stupid system for chosing their new leaders that doesn't even let normal rank and file party members vote and I don't really understand it) and then, when she resigned, Johnson gets chosen by the same process. You know the system is fucked when the only person that was democratically elected is David Fucking
So, Gamefreak have made the descision that you will not be able to transfer all Pokemon to the new Sword and Shield games, due to a limit on time and manpower that it would take to make all of the animations for all 800+ Pokemon. This essentially means that, unless they reverse this when the next games come out, they have removed a large number of Pokemon from the games. As you can probably guess, this caused a shitstorm from the fandom and, I'll admit, I was one of those people who hated the idea and, tbh, I still think it's stupid, but I get why they did it and where they're coming from. But, that's not why I'm writing this. Nope, I'm gonna list off all of the Pokemon I want to see them remove or wouldn't care if they did remove (they've stated that Mega Evolutions and Z-Moves are being replaced by Dynamaxing (a mechanic that I would quite happily have seen removed so more Pokemon could be kept but hey ho), but we don't know if that is as in "you can't use this until post-game" a la
So, the Elections UK MEP's (Members of the European Parliament) have taken place for the first time since Brexit. I don't really know how best to put it, it's all kinda messy. Some good, some bad.
The Good: Both the Tories and Labour got essentially wiped. Labour lost half of their seats (20 previously from the 2014 Election, now 10) and the Conservatives now only have 3 MEP's (previously having 18). I dunno if it's exactly a good thing, because they're almost a non-factor in national politics, but I'll put the Lib Dems gains (15 seats) as a plus because they're anti-brexit. The Green party got 7 MEPs. And UKIP lost all 23 of their seats.
The Bad: The Brexit party got 28 seats and almost 30% of the vote, "winning" 10 out of 11 regions.
So, what can we take away from this? Well, if you just look at it superficially, it looks like the appitite for brexit is stronger than ever, especially considering what party got the largest proportion of the vote and now people are going to use this
