    Salisbury, Skripal, Poison and Russia.

    Suspects identified, several Russians shockingly enough! https://news.sky.com/story/suspected-perpetrators-of-skripal-novichok-attack-identified-11441349

    Legalise cannabis?

    Might improve the quality of the joke thread if you're back in the giggle bush too?

    Legalise cannabis?

    It's thought it can increase the chance of problems for those who are already predisposed to suffering with mental illness, there's a difference.

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    As I always seem to hear different arguments from both sides about how addictive it is or isn't, how did you find giving it up?

    Our cannabis laws are a disgrace as this case is so painfully illustrating. If any good can come of this situation let's hope it prompts a review. As a medicinal user of cannabis I can say with confidence that it can be incredibly effective relief for range of things. People are suffering because of our outdated views while others are criminalised for seeking an effective medicine. It needs to change.

    People/Things you changed your mind about

    Same. I've also weirdly warmed to him as a person. He holds plenty of views that a consider abhorrent, but you can probably argue that's largely down to his unconventional upbringing. Once you get past that, he comes across as a decent person who appreciates what he has in life, is in his own way quite respectful and he seems a loyal and principled person. Massive respect to him for getting back in the ring, even if the fight at the weekend was a complete farce, after everything he's been through as well. That alone would be enough to change my opinion of him, and the interview afterwards cemented that.

    On the Irish issue, it's something I'd never really known much about until I moved over to Northern Ireland last year. Admittedly it greatly varies by area, but almost everyone I have spoken to it about wants a united Ireland. As an Englishman over here you do feel a certain degree of hostility from some people, which I naively didn't expect. For what it's worth, and I admit I generally only hear one side of the story over here, it feels a different place to England and much more similar to the Republic than places I've ever lived in England. I don't see why it should be forced to be a part of the UK.

    I couldn't help myself when I saw this left over from Record Store Day. The packaging even has an appropriate odour to it 😂

    North Korea

    I've read a report that said a lot of their nuclear scientists were killed in the test site collapse, so it's more than just the infrastructure that was damaged, the entire program was crushed.
  11. Got this for my vinyl collection the other week, it was the album that first got me into him. One of the all time greats, such a range of styles, incredible guitarist, singer and lyricist.

    So would a Tory minority government be your preferred alternative? I guess it's either that or a Labour government propped up by other parties, which would also be be no better for democracy given that the Tories got the most votes.

    Record Store Day today. Nothing on the list massively excited me this year, but I did end up getting the Blue Planet II double disk sound track. It's on transparent blue disks which looks pretty cool, and the sleeve will be a nice addition to my collection. Not what I would usually go for, but it is some beautiful music.
