  1. Thoughts on the sociology of Brexit - Political Economy Research Centre

    I’ve spent the bulk of the past 18 hours reading social media. I feel a little queasy. A bit like a day of eating only pick’n’mix and poo.

    @aden_76 Excellent, thanks! I shall en-Tumbl it tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of it!

    As is traditional, the pleasure of BBC’s Glastonbury coverage is enlivened by discovering what UI annoyances they’ve introduced this year.

    Folks at Glastonbury look like they’re having a good time though, so that’s lovely to watch. Thanks BBC. While we still have you.

    I don’t think I’ve ever found myself wondering if there’s any point to being nice. Doesn’t seem like a route to success and happiness rn.

    Still, at least the socialist utopia that all those left Brexiters wanted will be happening any day now hahahahahahaha

    @anneshewring You have my sympathies in this difficult time.

    Why Brexit is like Linux:
    - Requires rebuilding your workflows
    - Lots of compatibility issues
    - Only more free in theory
    - People regret it
