-21 for CON/LD
+20 for LAB/SNP

That gaps just keeps widening... Still waiting for the good news for the right.

What the hell is that? UK politics don't work in blocks like that.

Obviously, but A) I was referencing a few pages back where those totals were reported as half that; B) As a very, very sad Lib Dem supporter, I would at least be hoping the non-Scottish seats would be heading to the Tories which is not happening; and C) Despite the shock at the success of the Conservatives tonight (relative to polled expectations), the current coalition is still getting killed rather than holding steady even if they manage to stay in power. Hardly a ringing endorsement.

Why on Earth are you a Lib Dem supporter?

If Britain is divisible, Scotland must be divisible.

Labour sources say Farage ends up third in South Thanet.

They're getting pretty desperate...

I feel a little sick.

Why? Five years from now you may be living in an independent Scotland. Alternatively you may be living in a Scotland where the Tories are doing a Mariano Rajoy on you.

We may need to bring back the Black and Tans.

EDIT: For Scotland, obviously, not Ireland...

It's comforting to know that our glorious royal family can still inspire such impotent hatred from the masses.

90% Conservative.

Said I was a "moderate libertarian", though. Huh

If not for the RISE OF THE SNP this would have been an incredibly boring election. It's just been tied the whole time. Even the third parties haven't really moved at all. At least election night should be fun though.

If not for the rise of the SNP it would be boring, because Labour would stand a good chance at getting a majority.

School children have 12 weeks off a year. The whole point of this bill is that parents don't.

Oh, schoolchildren. Gotcha.

3041  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: U.S. birth rates slide as Millennials enter the age of marriage and childbearing on: May 03, 2015, 05:55:36 pm
Among people I know, most are married within 2-3 years of finishing their education and finding relatively stable employment, and all but a few have children within a couple of years of marriage.

A few people I knew in high school had children out of wedlock, but so far the general pattern is surprisingly similar across levels of educational attainment. Those who were able to find work without going to college or grad school just have a few years head start on those who spent more years as students, and (so far, at least) are more likely to have more than one child. (I'm not particularly keen on getting married, and I'm even less enthusiastic about children, so all of this is a bit discomforting.)

Obviously, none of this accounts for my former classmates - both from high school and from college - who have fallen into the unemployed (or marginally employed) underclass, most of whom are so totally detached from social life that they've essentially become invisible.

Does this make you more enthusiastic than you were previously?

People take 12 weeks per year off on holiday? What US is this?

I like how this question assumes you're not already black. Clearly the person who's asking it comes from a position of having absolutely no experience being black.

3049  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Childcare Reform Act (Debating) on: May 03, 2015, 04:28:59 pm
I probably haven't worded this clearly enough.

Under the 90/50 discount if every child in atlasia went to one of these childcare places the weekly cost would be 6.3 billion. Now the total number of holidays is about 12 weeks per year, so if every child went every week the cost would be about 75 billion per year.

Now obviously not all or even most children would use this, and those that did probably wouldn't use it for the entire holiday, but it's not clear exactly what numbers would.

When did we do this?!
