I wonder how PT and Dilma justify to themselves and their supporters how the market has reacted these last few weeks.

I don't think they have to.

The funny thing about returning to the game is that so little has changed. This kind of thing was a major source of controversy a decade ago.

Iceland is an odd country so it should come as no surprise that it also has odd politics. Given the events of the past decade it's maybe not surprising that political life there has only got stranger. The Independence Party has deep roots; even in 2009 it could only be knocked down to 24%. It's difficult to truly kill a party that has a true social base, even if it disgraces itself spectacularly. This is obviously particularly true in a conservative society like Iceland.

Careful what you believe when there's a factional fight going on.

Wait... you intended to live with your grandmother? I had read this as 'stay for a bit', which is a rather different situation. Unless you intend to be her carer, that's not on.

This doesn't really feel like a surprise.

So Sarwars dad is a rich businessman with shady connections?

Alternatively he could be described as the Governor of Punjab.

There is no moral duty to sublet. Stop trying to coax him into doing really stupid things.

Nowt wrong with staying over, but the general rule would be that she only cooks for you if she insists (i.e. a situation in which to suggest otherwise would be offensive). And you do the washing up.

You're trying too hard again.

Its the regional breakdown thats interestig. Who typically votes LibDem in Sheffield, Cornwall, Highlands etc.

The Liberal vote in the West Country has traditionally been a hick vote, for want of a better way of putting it. There used to be a big confessional element to this (i.e. the West Country is a deeply conservative region with no socialist tradition outside the cities and a couple of random other places, but is also an area with a strong Nonconformist heritage, particularly in remote areas. Nonconformists everywhere were usually pretty uncomfortable with the idea of voting Tory, which left the Liberals as the default option), though that's declined as a factor in recent decades.

yet with a weird libertarian streak on sexual matters.

Translation: it prints pictures of tits on page three. Libertarian streak my foot; virulently homophobic rag back in the day.

Well, that's because the Daily Mail is the overwhelmingly most popular middle-class newspaper,

That is precisely my point. LibDem support comes (came?) mostly from perfectly ordinary people, including large numbers who are neither particularly political nor particularly 'liberal' (in the usual sense of the word). Their main electoral selling point between the early 70s and entering government in 2010 was that they were 'different' (and that they were 'different' in a basically non-alienating way), which is why it was really quite difficult to generalise about their electorate...

(Related, did Bjelke-Petersen want to destroy the Great Barrier Reef to make way for a shipping lane, or is that hyperbole?)

Yes, he proposed it in all seriousness.
