Starmer accused of ‘gaslighting’ on Palestinian statehood recognition
  • ...he would commit to ensuring such a move is not vetoed by neighbouring countries.

    Does Starmer not realise that we did a Brexit a few years back, and now nobody gives a limp fuck about our foreign policy any more? Because the thing about that is, we did a Brexit a few years back, and now nobody gives a limp fuck about our foreign policy any more.

  • General election: Count Binface and Elmo return to stand against Sunak and Starmer
  • Honestly I'm all for anything that robs a little bit more dignity from these toffs. I'm looking forward to Rishi (hopefully) delivering a historic concession speech with a man standing behind him in cardboard armour with a bin over his head. Maybe we can organise some rainwater to be present also, just to rub it in.

  • Climate scientist Susan Solomon: ‘Let’s not give up now – we’re right on the cusp of success’
  • toxic positivity that causes people to slack off or shift blame.

    To be fair, the general public, even the slack ones, do not deserve much blame. It should be much much easier to live plastic-free or fossil-free than it is. We're all under financial pressure and nice-to-haves like eco-friendly purchases are naturally the first thing to go when your other choice is to choose between heating and eating. We need to target our blame thoughtfully.

    Enshitification hits Postman. POSTMAN!

    community.postman.com Collections in lightweight client

    In regards to the topic that has been closed recently: Collections not displayed after update - #8 by danny-dainton So how exactly does one use collections now for people who literally can’t connect the postman client to an account (login = literally impossible)? Exporting my settings is all well ...

    Collections in lightweight client

    I'm a bit late to the party here because I haven't needed Postman for a while, but how is it okay that now we have to LOG IN TO POSTMAN and send our API requests to them for them to store on their own cloud?

    Discussion: Where are all the dystopias?

    Thanks to the glorious shovelling of Classic Who onto BBC IPlayer, I have been enjoying a glut of mid-80s classic Who.

    It struck me how many of the CBaker-McCoy era stories are dystopian tales, reflecting the pro-establishment neo-captialist society that the writers felt was being inflicted on them.

    Varos, Paradise Towers and Terra Alpha (of Happiness Patrol) are obvious examples; Necros (Revelation of the Daleks) and is a particularly nasty one. Even Trial of a Timelord was, at its heart, a tale of authoritarianism and narrative control.

    Modern Britain is clearly in another phase like the 80s. If anything, the authoritarianism is more extreme, and the government's avarice more naked.

    So where are the writers' reactions to that nowadays? Whenever the show has recently attempted to address societal issues, it has been either a direct sermon like Orphan 55 or an incompetent muddle like Kerblam.

    Where are the dystopias?
