1AM, but it's nice looking. No outliers, only curves and waves. I sadly don't have the time zone excuse (I never set foot outside of my time zone).

Putting those numbers into Electoral Calculus gives Lab 315 seats, Con 297, LD 11.

Would Labour be able to cobble together a coalition with minor parties, or would this mean Britain goes back to the polls?

I don't think the Lib Dems will do THAT poorly, but if that number is in the ball park, then I could see a super tiny Labour-Lib Dem coalition government.

326 seats is a one-seat majority, so the first member to resign or die will make it a minority government; and I don't think the Lib Dems will want another coalition after 2010-2015.

I suppose they could get supply from some small parties (anyways, you can always get the support of Northern Irish parties against a few goodies (especially SDLP considering it's Labour).

Okay, this is it. The Western governments have tolerated this pro-Russian bullsh*t for too long. Now, we've got 298 dead civilians, who had absolutely nothing to do with this conflict.

Something needs to be done. Something serious.

We can't.

German businesses do too much in Russia to allow Merkel to do something.
Russians have invested too much money in UK to allow Cameron to do something.
Obama won't do anything as long Europe won't allow him.

I think European countries should take a clear stance. Either you're with us, either you're with him. You're with him, we seize your assets.

The Acts are describing the decisions of the First Christian Leaders. There is no intervention of God, Jesus or a prophet there. I don't see why we should feel compelled to follow their HUMAN decisions.

Keep your version of 'God's law' for your own denomination and congregation, thank yoy; the Crusades ended centuries ago.

''My version''? There's really only one way to interpret this:

''Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.'' - Leviticus 18:22

This law may be from the Old Testament, but it still applies today because it is a moral law, as opposed to a ceremonial law (such as the prohibition on eating pork, for example).


As far I as know, there is no mention of "moral laws are still valid, ceremonial laws aren't somewhere in Gospels".

Is America set to join the rest of the civilised world???

5 decades too late.

Didn't Breivik get about 20 years paid vacation in a comfortable and well furnished "cell"? Perhaps America is better off not joining this.

Yeah right, we should barbarically and painfully murder dozens of people (a good share of which end up being innocent) each years just so we can have our little vengeance against one person. That's definitely the right way to settle public policy issues.

Not that the American justice system is perfect (or anywhere close to it), but I'm pretty sure most normal people would find mass murderers and terrorists living a life of luxury for a couple decades in exchange for their crimes to be completely repugnant.

It's a principle question for us. State shouldn't play to God, State shouldn't execute people.

Sure, you're free to handpick one extreme case, but I'm sure than we can find tens of cases where an innocent in USA was executed, which is the other extreme.

"There is no doubt that the country on whose territory this terrible tragedy happened bears responsibility," Putin was quoted by Ria Novosti news agency as saying.
 
"This tragedy would not have happened if there was peace in the country, if military operations had not resumed in the south-east of Ukraine," he added.

Translation: It's Ukraine's fault that the plane was shot down over a country we destabilized and partially annexed in an area controlled by rebels we support and supplied state-of-the-art Russian missile launchers to.

What an effing POS.

Yet, if this happened in Chechnya, there is no doubt than Russia would blame terrorists, not themselves.

I'm normally not a fan of military intervention, but I wouldn't mind if we sent a bunch of troops to eastern Ukraine right now.

Wrong place. They are merely pawns. All is decided in Moscow, but American government are being weak. The Western World must get together and topple and kill Putin.

Non natives of the British Isles now have to guess how 'Leominster' is pronounced.

Since you're asking the question, I'm pretty the answer isn't Leo-min-ster.

Following the logic than Wednesday is pronounced Wens-day and Worcester is Worster, I would guess Leoster or Leomster?

Cornwall is part of England.

But you'll be old at a point.

When I get old, I'll be comfortable with the global economic rancor caused by the sloth of US legislators?

No, you'll get more money from insurance companies than you'll give to them.

Well, it's a perfect sentence, with no spelling mistakes, which is better than some "bilingual" politicians.

For me, French, English and a little bit of Spanish (and coming with that, basic understanding of written romance languages).

The creepy thing about this is that according to the article, the Miles that broke into the Kennedy compound is 22 years old, and the Atlas poster Miles is also 22 years old (according to his profile.)

And Lacroix is a French family name, so it could be someone from Louisiana.
