Friday Deploy Freezes Are Exactly Like Murdering Puppies –
VOICEOVER: "Previously, on twitter ..." So, that happened. I hadn't seen anyone say something like this in quite a while.  I remember saying things like this myself as recently as, oh, 2016, but I thought the zeitgeist had moved on to continuous delivery. Which is not to say that Friday freezes don't happen anymore,…

Beware the Tory cult that’s steering Brexit
Certainly the Conservative cult follows its own logic. The aim isn’t simply to reduce immigration or boost the economy. Rather, Brexit reaffirms the tribe’s ancestral values against a disappointing modernity. The difficulty of Brexiting is part of the appeal: only a great tribe can renew itself through sacrifice.

Hence the ovations for any speaker at last month’s Conservative conference who urged walking out with no deal.
