2020.01.25 13:03 eulenaugeIs that a common opinion among Brexiters?
And if so, why do they hate the UK so much? I left out the first part where you have the common tropes of the evil, oppressive and disfunctional EU close to collapse. Louis de Bernières: why I believe in Brexit [...] The logic of Brexit should take us further. It has been increasingly obvious to me and fellow Leavers for many years now that the English would be better off on their own. It seems ever more likely that Ireland can be reunified, because all the very good reasons for the North resisting this have gone; the Republic is no longer a corrupt, backward country, it is an energetic vibrant place where anyone would love to live, including me. We are an important trading partner; if Ireland were being strictly rational it would also leave the EU and opt for an Anglo-Irish economic zone. England has no good reason for wanting to cling on to Northern Ireland, or to Scotland either. The English attachment to Scotland is a sentimental one, but the Scots have fallen out of love with us, and inevitably the English will sooner or later have had enough of the grandstanding of the nationalists. The English have noticed that their own nationalism is the only one that is routinely denigrated and despised, and that also grates. The English have developed their own “cultural cringe”. I search my memory for its origins and think that it dates from the time when English football fans were notorious all over the world. The flag of St George became the emblem of chanting, rioting, racist rightwing oafs, and so the rest of the English renounced it. I couldn’t travel in France without people wanting to reproach me with les ooligans anglais. Being English was a matter of shame. In Scotland the Saltire flies everywhere. The English should have reclaimed their flag and thought more about what Englishness is. It is at one level a love of landscape, a rubbing along of like-minded people, a shared language rich in dialect and figures of speech, a love (like the French) of the absurd. The English have lost their sense of themselves as an ancient shared culture, however. In Ireland, Wales and Scotland, the children learn their national dances and songs at school and at home. In England, I doubt if a single child could recite the first verse of “Greensleeves” or knows what a maypole is. In English schools history is taught in a strangely episodic manner — Roman, Tudors, second world war — so students have no continuous historical narrative and get by on what they pick up from misleading historical dramas that they find on their screens. They don’t know how much they don’t know, or how one thing connects to another. The English don’t even know their country geographically. Most southerners have little interest in what goes on Up North, and most northerners wouldn’t be able to find Guildford on a map. The trick is to know the difference between nationalism and patriotism. Nationalism is always at somebody else’s expense, whereas patriotism depends upon nothing but itself. “My country, right or wrong” is a road to Hell. “I love my country anyway” is something altogether different. How the Scots would prosper without the pound, and outside the EU, with possible tariffs between us on the border, is anyone’s guess, but that would not be England’s problem. With any luck even if the Scottish do leave, it seems likely that the Welsh would stay in the union, either out of sentiment or self-interest. England’s attitude should be like that of any sensible lover: if you love me, stay; if not, I am better off without you. The English should shrug, and agree that it’s understandable that everyone should prefer their own mess to somebody else’s order, because, after all, that’s how we feel ourselves. The English have never formally been asked whether or not they would prefer independence from the other countries of the UK, or even if they would like their own parliament, and it is high time they were. And so at last, we leave the EU, despite the tireless rearguard actions of ultra-Remainers. We are the rats that left the EU first, and we are probably not the last. But we are not leaving Europe. That is an inconceivable impossibility. The end of Great Britain also seems to be a distinct, and perhaps even a desirable prospect. However, our neighbourhood of nations will remain a family, bound together by the dialectic of our history, by the uniting in death of far too many of our soldiers, and by our shared cultures. This kind of union is far more valuable, deep and durable than any faltering economic and political experiment could ever be. People are talking about a “new relationship” between the UK and Europe. If you think that a relationship is all about trade agreements and extradition treaties, then clearly something “new” must be come up with. But the EU is not Europe. Let’s not be confused. Our relationship will be as it always has been, more than 2,000 years old, an oscillation between the polarities of love and hate, respect and disrespect, admiration and contempt, co-operation and churlishness, fascination and disregard, depending upon what providence throws in our path. No family is constituted and determined by written agreement. The Germans and the French, the Portuguese and the Spanish, the Scottish and Irish, we’re a family whether we’re in the EU or not. Rearranging the fences between our houses does nothing to alter the fact that we are, and always have been, in the same village.

2019.10.16 21:41 PeterMacakay-1990Subaru: From a farmer's workhorse to a rally legend
“Win on a Sunday, sell on a Monday”. For years, this was the rationale for automotive manufacturers entering into competitive motorsport. Looking back through rose tinted spectacles, there have been some innovative and cunning examples of filling showrooms with cars emulating their race car twin. Volvo T5 estate cars launching over kerbs in the BTCC, Porsche 911 GT3’s carving the perfect line around Watkins Glen’s fast, sweeping curves, Mini Cooper Countryman buggies devouring the desert in the Dakar Rally or even Jim Clark dancing a Lotus Cortina around Brands Hatch on three wheels. However, The World Rally Championship claims the crown for spawning some of the most desirable road cars ever built and in one particular case, transforming a brand’s image seemingly overnight. At the beginning of the 90’s, Japanese manufacturer Subaru had cut a tidy niche in the lucrative British car market. Rugged, bulletproof cars which could be thrashed around a farm filled with sheep, muck and old collie dogs until they eventually fell apart generations later, that was Subaru’s forte. 4 wheel drive Subaru Legacies were as loyal and dependable as a black Labrador and as eternal as a Patek Philippe Swiss watch Unsurprisingly, at the time, Subaru’s never featured on any teenager’s bedroom wall. These were still plastered with white Lamborghinis outside a Miami beach club. An Oxfordshire engineering firm, an explosively talented young Scotsman and a former world champion co-driver turned entrepreneur were about to change all of that. Subaru chose Prodrive to campaign their cars in British rallying with the view to eventually progress to world championship level. David Richards’ Banbury boffins were the ideal partner to transform these agricultural workhorses into fire spitting monsters that burbled like a snoring Sir Tom Jones after a bottle of single malt scotch. In 1993, Prodrive took delivery of Subaru’s latest model that would replace the outgoing Legacy out on the stages, the Impreza. Scandinavian genius, Ari Vatanen, debuted the radical new group A Impreza at the notorious 1000 lakes rally in Finland, finishing in second place overall. Ari’s extraordinary commitment and finesse over Finland’s infamous, terrifying jumps delivered the dream start for the boys in blue and gold. Spanish ace, Carlos Sainz, would clinch the cars first rally win on the brutal Acropolis rally in 1994. Clearly, the “555” Subaru Impreza had all the DNA of a true thoroughbred world rally car. Scottish rallying hero, Colin McRae, cemented the Impreza’s sporting legacy with 20 rally wins and a world championship triumph in 1995 behind the wheel of various iterations of the boxer engine rally legend. An explosion in British car culture had been triggered. McRae’s on stage antics plucked the Subaru brand from farmyards and cattle sales, to b roads and boy racer car park meets. Subaru clearly spotted an opportunity and exported high performance “WRX” and “STI” versions of the Impreza to the UK. All of a sudden, a whole new world of affordable performance was unlocked for petrol heads up and down the British Isles. As McRae became a national hero, so did the Impreza. Porsche rivalling speed, 5 seats, a boot and best of all, gold wheels! The Subaru Impreza WRX road car delivered all of the authentic flat 4 burble that propelled McRae to all those wins. So vivid is my memory of lying in bed as a young boy listening out for that instantly recognisable growl of a highly tuner boxer engine, echoing down the glen a few miles from our home. At the turn of the millennium in rural parts of Scotland, the distinctive Subaru growl was never far away. My fondest memory of childhood involved McRae and the Impreza in 1995. My Mother and I gazed at the television with pure elation as Colin mesmerized the capacity crowd at Chester race course while he celebrated his miraculous world championship triumph. Co-driver Derek Ringer grinned from the passenger seat like the famous feline of the English county chosen to conclude the famous RAC rally. McRae vigorously rotated his 555 Impreza over and over again, destroying his knobbly gravel spec Pirellis with the saltire flag proudly extended out the window of the Banbury built bullet. From that day on, at 5 years old, a Subaru Impreza was the car I would always aspire to. On Christmas day a couple of years later, my dream came true. A blue and gold 1997 McRae/Grist Impreza WRC. It may have just been a toy slot car but a season’s worth of trademark spectacular “McCrash” re-enactments had already taken place on my bedroom Scalextric stage before I was eventually dragged to breakfast. I suspect that many others from the “Gran Turismo” or “Colin McRae rally” Playstation generation will also have very fond memories of the Impreza. Current skyrocketing values of the most desirable special edition Imprezas like the Prodrive built P1 or the exotic 22B shout loud and clear just how fondly remembered and revered these rally replicas are in the UK. In 2000, the Prodrive P1 limited edition run of 1000 Sonic Blue cars were released to the UK market only. Developed by the Oxfordshire firm that had been so instrumental in Subaru’s WRC success and boasting a silhouette and stance so reminiscent of the rally car, desirability levels were off the scale. Lightweight O.Z racing wheels, a comically large rear spoiler, devastating power and most importantly of all that rock star soundtrack, the P1 had it all. Today, nearly 20 years later, a well driven P1 could keep pace with any of the current crop of hot hatchbacks in its favourite country road habitat. A boast even a mid engine Ferrari of the time would struggle to emulate. No wonder then that a low mileage Impreza P1 will now set you back £40,000 at time of writing. Without McRae’s flat out heroics in the WRC beaming around the UK on BBC Grandstand combined simultaneously with a Subaru road car range that so closely emulated Colin’s WRC steeds, Subaru’s would still be stuck out on the farm, well off the petrol head radar. This brand image transformation will go down in history as one of the finest deployments of marketing dollars in motorsport that we have ever seen.

FINAL UPDATE: JUN / 06 / 2019
Given the egregious and downright supercancerous actions of Treyarch's marketing and design teams regarding the new content of this current Days of Summer event, I've decided to abandon this post. I can't be a part of this cancer and do not condone it. If you want to spend your money, go right ahead. If you're a normal person that doesn't own a yacht, that works a normal job, and pays their taxes, know that you work long and hard for your money and to be able to spend it freely. But know that the sole purpose of Black Ops 4 was to take your hard earned money and give you a wad of shit in return. From Black Ops 4's extremely problematic development to the ridiculous content spamming in the Spectre Rising and Days of Summer Operations. Call of Duty has become a laughing stock. The console versions are a giant item mall with poor frame rates and poor design. The PC version is a ghost town, as per usual. I'm done with Treyarch, I'm done with Black Ops 4, and I'm done with Call of Duty. If you think Modern Warfare will be any different, you need to reevaluate the history of this game and how hard of a downward spike it took. I won't buy Modern Warfare, I won't buy whatever shit pile Treyarch conjures up in 2020, and I won't buy anything after that. Call of Duty is just a catalog of garbage with a game running in the background. It's vanity. The people today also condone this lifestyle.
If you don't have this skin for your character, you're bad. You're poor. You suck.
Your life is meaningless if you don't have a clown suit. A 10-foot finger can be pointed at Fortnite and PUBG for influencing Black Ops 4's terrible design so heavily. For those who want to use the information below for good use, feel free to do whatever you want with it. I can't support this cancer.
2018.08.06 01:31 Senior-WranglerThe Lasting Shadow of the Eigva
Much had been accomplished since the Eigvastaat’s collapse had caused a great economic crisis in Europe. Many of the nations which had been greatly affected by this crisis had responded admirably to the circumstances they found themselves in. Onghary and the Free State had been amongst the first to act, establishing new trade routes across the continent to compensate for their lost goods. The Free State had even opportunistically resurrected its old trading posts in the Mittelsea while conquering the lands around them to secure healthy trade to all the nations on its shores. Perhaps most importantly, many of the nations of Europe had even assembled in the city of Londyn, which was attended by the majority of the affected states and which agreed on a set of general principles to help their shattered economies recover. But of course, much had now changed, and the co-operation between states had begun to unravel. Perhaps the Free State had been much perturbed at the Londyn Summit, as their ploy to control all trade in that sea had been inadvertently foiled. Perhaps the other nations had grown un-nerved by Gallia’s relentless pursuit of its own goals, namely to attain ultimate hegemony in the north and to spread its own faith to all corners of the earth. Perhaps even Brythonia’s invasion of former Eigva lands had exposed rifts and ideological differences between the potential partners. Either way, the Second Londyn Summit was something of a disappointment, with the sole external representatives from Saltir refusing to back any measures against the Brythonians. Clearly, there was still much to be done to unify the North Sea in the face of political and economic uncertainty. All mini-crisis penalties remain unchanged for now. Since I am now retiring as a mod, please tag mzekeww in any further updates for this crisis, rather than me.
With the sudden disintegration of the Egivastaat, the lands and islands surrounding the North Sea were thrown into disarray. For so long, the Legation States had been a lynchpin of northern trade – a source of pine and softwoods, minerals, iron, fat, leather, fish, furs and more besides. Now the only thing that came out of those ravaged lands were people, fleeing westwards from the destruction on the mainland. The first to feel the pinch of an economic downturn were the magisters and traders of the Freistadtland, whose very existence depended upon trade to the north. With no safe ports to dock in and with fewer goods flowing from the wild north, their livelihoods began to suffer. Slowly and painfully, many of the merchant families began to declare bankruptcy. Slowly and painfully, many of their hanseatic fleets began to repose rotting in the docks, bereft of wares to sell. With the Free State suffering so, the delicate spider’s web of trade routes began to collapse. Houlant, their immediate neighbour, was the first to feel the aftershocks as their ports began to report a worrying downturn in goods intake and merchant fleet numbers. Gallia, the empire the guarded the Channel, watched with unfolding horror as the stream of merchant ships that flowed between Kent and Gallia slowed to a trickle, then to a stop. Brave Saltir, taking its first steps onto the mainland of the British Isles, found the promise of prosperity from their new harbours on the Vesi Sea to be empty and hollow as trade from the east quietly drifted away like mist upon the ocean waves. Land based trade suffered similarly as well. Onghary and Kievo had both been major trading partners of the Legation States' eastern provinces, and with their disintegration their economies began to buckle under pressure. Both had depended on supplements of food from the north in times of crisis before - now they would have to survive again by other means. Even the smallest nations that had undergone the greatest suffering were not spared. Ceolia and Brythonia, the two exiled kingdoms of Prydain, had been dependent on the goodwill of Legatine traders to keep their nations alive – and now, without the Egivastaat to support them with imports of food and wood, they had little left of their own to forge their future with. Such was the fate of the north, when its greatest nation and leading light collapsed. No one could yet tell who would emerge from the darkness to take its place. Many nations around the North Sea and Balkans are suffering a major economic downturn as a result of the Legation States’ collapse. Since we don’t have an economy system yet, the following effects will take place instead: All affected nations can only raise a maximum of 80% of their available army. All affected nations will start to suffer penalties if they raise over 50% of their army in war. All affected nations must RP the hard times you are facing. The affected nations are as follows:
A quick note to you all: this is not a crisis. It will go away automatically after a short period of time (hopefully), and no further penalties will be added to population or tech if you just live through it. Think of this as a minor inconvenience only. If you end up fighting too many wars or don't RP, however, it may turn into more than just minor…
2018.07.01 00:06 WillShakespeare99The Scottish Labour Leader Speaks At A Rally In Ayr After The First Minister Election
Friends in Ayr! Good evening! I have come from fresh from my new office in Holyrood! Earlier today, the final results of Scottish Parliament’s vote for First Minister has been revealed. As I'm sure you all know, it was a race between myself, IceCreamSandwich401, and Duncs11. The winner was never in any sort of doubt, and although I am disappointed, I would like to offer wholehearted congratulations to the re-elected Green First Minister. He fought a good election campaign, winning a Green-SNP majority, and he should be proud of his win. I look forward to being a strong opponent of his neglect of domestic issues, his mistakes, and his excesses, being a progressive alternative espousing a new establishment and better politics which works for ordinary people. But my friends, this First Minister election was also seismic for Scottish Labour. Our brand of positive, progressive, unifying unionism is now the mainstream in Scotland as the Scottish Parliament voted me second, as the main alternative to the Greens. Although my unionist beliefs guide me to want to talk about everyday, not constitutional issues, tonight, since this First Minister election was fought broadly on the issue of the union, that is what I will address in most detail. When I announced my candidacy just a few days ago, I was mocked. I was told I should stand aside for the CLibs. I was expected to come last. I stood to give Scotland a fresh alternative - a solution to a divisive dichotomy, a response to the yearning for something positive in Scottish politics, a candidate who would speak to those weary of a divisive approach to constitutional politics. I wanted to carve Scottish Labour out as a clear alternative, as a strong and independent opposition, as the face of forgotten Scotland. I stood to challenge other unionist parties to talk up our union, not talk down Scotland, to embrace a unionism which believes in better and strives for greater, to present the Scottish people with a vision they can believe in. My candidacy was a statement of intent and a call for different. It was to show our people that a better unionist politics is possible. But friends, we did something nobody thought we ever could: our unionism is the mainstream now, our party is the main opposition to the forces of separatism and cynicism alike, our Parliament has endorsed a unionism which speaks to the hopes and needs of ordinary people. Don't let anybody downplay the importance of this result, or dismiss its implications. This is not an event that can be downplayed or set aside. The largest opposition parliament, a party which claims to be Scotland's unionist voice, a leader who stakes his political identity on the union, came last in this election, and lost unionist support in Holyrood. They might try to ignore this but they must never forget that this is a call for a new unionist approach. I would like to thank really-friends , comped , cjrowen , and, ofcourse, Secretary_Salami for showing courage, compassion, and cooperative spirit by backing my candidacy. In doing so they have made it clear that the unionist message we deserve is a unionism built, never on Scottish weakness, but in the inspiration of our shared British past, never in Scottish inferiority, but in the co-operative prosperity of our United Kingdom, and never in threats and intimidation, but in the boundless opportunities of a future together. We deserve something to believe in. We deserve a politics which delivers on bread and butter issues. We need a fresh approach. And this radical idea, bold thought, neglected hope, long left on the fringe of our politics is now Scotland's main school of unionist thought. We in Labour stand as it's proponents, it's champions - those who never tried to out do the Classical Liberals, those who never gave up on a Scottish politics in which we do not divide ourselves on the basis of constitutional issues alone - a principal which has guided us for the last two terms - and those who never gave up on a very simple idea: unionism can be hopeful. We have always believed, and we always will, that our union will only stand so long as we are positive, so long as we respect and love Scotland, so long as we show the greatness our United Kingdom allows us to have. And finally we are being listened to by our fellow unionists. It was clear I would never win against a Green-SNP majority, but this is a symbolic win for our movement, for those who believe in a hopeful Scotland, and happy people, in a strong United Kingdom, and a better politics, for the future prosperity of the Scottish people and the strength of our United Kingdom. My message in this election was simple: we need a progressive government delivering the policies Scotland deserves and which is not obsessed with the constitution, instead focusing on the everyday struggle of working people; we need a unionism which unites, not divides, and offers hope for a brighter tomorrow; we need a unionist vision which everyone can buy in to, which wins hearts and minds, souls and saltires, and which stops dividing politics in to nationalist v unionist, instead reaching across the aisle, to forge a union built to last, and one fit for all. It was about ensuring that we unionists in Holyrood presented a message of hope, that could ensure a wide appeal for our ideals, and the long-term survival of the United Kingdom. My friends, we had a rough election campaign and build up. Our party was often mocked and derided. We were seen as a spent force, as insufficiently unionist, and second fiddle to the CLibs and Greens alike. It was nobody's fault - it's what two terms as a junior coalition partner do to you. Well let me tell you friends: they're not laughing now! We are the voices of a new politics, the champions of a better unionism, and, whilst the Classical Liberals remain a bigger party, this result means that we are the new force of opposition in Scotland. We took on the CLibs with their 3 seats, and our fellow unionists endorsed a positive unionism for our divided country. This is a lesson for us in the spoils to be gained from being radical, from being different, from being audacious. The message from this First Minister election result echoes out across the country: Labour is back! We now have a mandate from our Unionist colleagues to be a tireless and strong opposition, an exciting and inspiring alternative, and the voice of unionist Scotland. And, to, at long last, deliver a strong unionist voice that stops banging on about the constitution unprompted. Never again can our commitment to our country be questioned, no more can our relevance be diminished, not one person can doubt that our message is one of unity, solidarity, and strength. Thank you friends!

"Ladies and Gentlemen, I can no longer stand by and watch the will of Scotland drift into the abyss alongside the U.K. as a whole! Our overlords in London have in one night killed more than 65,000 people. We can no longer allow Scotland to drown under the waves which Britannia once Ruled, and we must break the dead weight and tread this water before it is too late. It is with this mindset, that I announce my push for each and every one of you in this Parliament to vote today for my new call for a Section 30 Order on the Independence of Scotland under the Scotland Act of 1998!" Nicola Sturgeon, the head of the Scottish National Party and the First Minister of the Scottish Parliament led the vote today to push for yet another Independence Referendum for Scotland after the Special Air Service launched the greatest military blunder in recent history under the orders of Theresa May. This has caused a massive amount of support in Scotland for a withdrawal from the United Kingdom. Mrs. Sturgeon has addressed the fact that "Scotland and the rest of the U.K. no longer maintain the same interests that created this United Kingdom in 1707. We can no longer be bound to a nation that has disregarded our existence for so long. We want the Union Jack out, we want the Nuclear Weapons out, we want the Soldiers out, and most of all, we want London out. I have no quarrel with Her Majesty the Queen, but we in Scotland will no longer take a single order from Number 10." The vote passed through the Scottish Parliament with 93 out of 129 votes in favour of resurfacing the topic of Scottish Independence. All across Scotland, protests have erupted in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other cities, demanding independence. A sea of blue cascades down the main thoroughfares of every major Scottish city as the Saint Andrew's Saltire has received record sales on Amazon.com. In London, a massive protest is underway with over 103,000 people filling the streets demanding that Parliament allow a referendum on the Independence of Scotland from the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Support for the Referendum has also been echoed throughout the country, and even the world on a smaller scale, with tens of thousands of people demanding that Scotland be given a choice on remaining with the United Kingdom. The failed assault on the Tabqa Dam has proven to be the straw that broke the camel's back, following years of being the lesser partner to England in the United Kingdom. Though there is support for Scotland to remain in the United Kingdom, including among the Overseas Territories, a very vocal faction has shown their view that the only Scotland they will stand for is an Independent Scotland. It is likely that if the British Parliament refuses this motion from the Scottish Parliament, the situation in Scotland may grow volatile, as scores of people have threatened violence if the vote is refused, and some businesses have even threatened to withdraw from the United Kingdom if the voices of Scotland are ignored.
