Euro 2016 England Fans Chant About Brexit At Violent Clashes In Marseille
This is what we look like to the rest of the world. And oddly enough, it's us who get to decide whether or not we can continue to be part of their club. Thank fuck we haven't given the rest of the EU a vote in the referendum. We'd all be exiled to some draughty archipelago somewhere off in the North Atlantic before you could say "rule Britannia".

Tory MP's attempt to block police investigation into election fraud allegations fails | Indy
Of course we all know they bought the election. It's what they do. “The consequences of a conviction would be [...] the potential for election results being declared void.” The schadenfreude would be exquisite, but all it would do is return them again with a bigger majority. There's a better way.

What ISIS Really Wants - The Atlantic
Fascinating, engaging piece, challenging a lot of preconceptions. "[W]e tend to see jihadism as monolithic, and to apply the logic of al‑Qaeda to an organization that has decisively eclipsed it [...] much of what the group does looks nonsensical except in light of a sincere, carefully considered commitment to returning civilization to a seventh-century legal environment, and ultimately to bringing about the apocalypse."

Donald Trump is not a joke: A warning to Americans from an Italian who survived Berlusconi - Quartz
"Like Trump, Berlusconi consistently seemed too absurd to be true[...] People didn’t take him or what he said seriously. Then one day we woke up to find our government overrun by criminals, our economy destroyed, and our cultural mores perverted to the extent that the objectification of women was commonplace. There was no more laughing left to do."
