  1. Brexit - UK negotiates a deal

    This whole shambles started because David Cameron wanted to avoid losing an election to Labour due to UKIP taking votes away from the Tories. The referendum vote comes through not overwhelmingly, but a win none the less for leave (52-48 in my opinion is not a large enough margin to legislate for a hard brexit, but anyway) Then he pissed off because he doesn't care and we were left with May in charge - she triggered article 50 without knowing exactly what sort of deal she wanted (or the level of deal that would get through parliament) and put in charge of negotiations the absolute idiot that is David Davis. Fast forward 2 years and we appear to be no further forward since the idiot Brexiters seemed to think Ireland would cave to the UK's demands without seeming to realise that they had the backing of the other EU countries now and weren't just on their own. At least I take comfort in the fact that enough MPs seem to understand that No Deal would be catastrophic so that seems to at least be off the table. With the red lines that the UK government want the only possible deal the UK can get is May's deal (which would undoubtedly lead to the breakup of the United Kingdom) I honestly have no idea what happens next, but it's also clear that there's no consensus in parliament for any end result, so we're stuck in a state of political limbo and just have to hope for the best.
  2. The Wrasslin' thread

    Indeed, it's the best part of the year for Wrestling fans to be honest, I'll always try and see at least the rumbles. Yeah, last nights matches were good, Ricochet v Gargano was amazing. The storytelling in that match and Ciampa v Black was amazing as well. I'll need to watch the UK Takeover because I've heard that was really good.
  3. The Wrasslin' thread

    Yeah, I let my sub lapse before the second Saudi one last year, but have just resubbed yesterday for the Takeover and the Rumble, depending on the results of the rumble I may stay subbed until Mania, but will drop it again after that.
  4. Have fond memories of Grandia 2 on the Dreamcast, so will most likely pick these up

  15. General Switch Discussion

    I did indeed, the box was unnecessarily huge, so had to leave it behind. The carry case made it worth it, ended up that I paid less for it than the uk se and got more.
  16. General Switch Discussion

    Finally got home and got my system set up, had some issues with the wifi, but nothing to complain about too much. Looking forward to taking a deep dive into Zelda now My Switch Friend code is 5359-6335-3894 for anyone who wants to add me

  23. House buying is the worst

    That's a separate help to buy scheme, this is the ISA that means the government will give you 25% on top of the amount you have saved in the account towards your house purchase. (max £200 per month allowed to be put in, £1200 allowed in the first month) Lenders will accept the bonus towards the deposit as it is guaranteed by the government. (I know since I work for one and we do)
  24. House buying is the worst

    Well the government website explaining it is here How I'm reading that is the bonus can only be used for the deposit on the house. But you wouldn't be able to get it for the portion of bonus you may be paying on exchange of contracts, only when completion is actually taking place.
  25. World of Warcraft: Legion

    I've been playing it, I got to 110 yesterday. The new way to quest was pretty good with the zone scaling to your character meaning there was no set path to do it. I did have a pretty long break from it prior to launch, but a new expansion always gets me back in. The changes have been interesting and it's definitely the smoothest expansion launch so far.
