*Breathes in that fresh new thread smell*
"At the point in time when bullets can pass through the interdimensional walls, when firepower takes up the entirety and eternity of space and time, all being stuck in a neverending life and death cycle as bullets recover and destroy their bodies in quick succession, no one able to think about anything but the sheer force of the bullets rapidly flying literally everywhere in the Materium, turning the Warp itself into nothing but a sea of semi-automatic weaponry, then there will be enough Dakka. Or atleast almost." - The Emperor.

History Channel will devote a miniseries to them.

Sadly, while I was being sarcastic, history channel would waste their time doing that, like how they wasted time on Ancient Aliens.

I was going to mention Ancient Aliens. I frankly wouldn't be surprised if at 3 am History channel brought up some random website called Nationstates and talked about the eye opening truth that aliens do indeed exist because some NS'er said so.

Was the UK Politics thread created by Aliens? We asked astrobiologist Zak Hawkings and Ufoologist Dan Thompson.

Zak Hawkings: I think it's pretty obvious that the UK politics thread was the work of alien life, and the covid thread even moreso. The intricate designs of the threads suggests a non human origin, far more advanced than modern man.

Dan Thompson: So when you look, you have a thread where numerous people are talking, and yet their faces are hidden by flag avatars. It is very possible that behind some of those accounts, there were alien visitors from another world.

That's a rubbish poll. Can't we keep the old one until the actual elections have happened, and then replace with something that is actually relevant to UK politics, not this fucking annoying shit about fucking Northumbrian fucking independence again.

Agreed. This is the "UK Politics" thread, not the "Every Ridiculous Idea A Handful of People in the UK Ever Thought Of" thread.

On the poll, I'm torn between "Keep the UK One country" and "Make Hasselhoff the High Lord Protector and Warden of the North"... the only two sensible options.

I’m not surprised that you don’t. :p :lol:

But really, she seems to be popular among blue voters. She would also be the first non-Caucasian PM too, and the third female PM, which would make the Torries three for three for female PMs.
