On Star Wars: I have decided to think of VII, VIII & IX as $900m fan fiction excercises. It makes me feel a lot better about the whole thing, and from that perspective they were relatively entertaining.

I hope someone has a real crack at them one day.
What lie do you tell yourself to feel better about the rest of the films also being shit and only existing to sell merch

First world champion for 2020. The purple man - Peter Wright of Scotland beats 3 time world champ Michael Gerwen of The Netherlands. What athletes!! Phil The Power Taylor won the last of his 14 world championship in January 2013.

Having played a lot of darts over the last 3 days (my bicep is actually sore), I have the utmost respect for the skill of these guys.

******* he'll. I've been about 2 days behind watching the darts the whole tournament, trying to avoid spoilers on every format I can think of

Have a quiet catch up with the eat my arse thread and just like that it's all been for nothing

Sad face
Sorry mate. The Sherrock win was prior to Xmas so didn't think it needed a spoiler tag.

No worries. It was the final I haven't caught up with yet.

Oh well, pretty close to impossible to avoid finding out the result of any events you're interested in for more than a few hours these days

He'd be banned from his own pub as his quickfire wit would undoubtedly cause trouble amongst the unwashed.

I dunno, he single handedly prevented WW3, so a few football hooligans should be easy enough to handle.

Anyhow as fate would have it I went to see Rise of Skywalker again tonight and what I think I can say about it is that it is the best movie in a shitshow of a trilogy, an ultimate guide of what not to do.

Doing the right thing and also being perceived to be doing the right thing is massive in these situations. Morrison is doing both extremely poorly. His strategy team/advisers have completely ballsed this up. The one good thing that may come out of this is that the Coalition's climate policy should be forced to be changed. The mood of the people has turned.

He's really misread the whole situation from the start

Lucky for him an election is far enough away and there's not a lot of internal or external competition for his job

How did this country end up with such an insipid government

(Edit: 'he' being Scott Morrison, not that loveable rogue of a super talented doofus tennis player)

Morrison has nothing to worry about.

Australians are idiots with short memories.

In 2003 John Howard was a "war monger" "guilty or war crimes" etc for sending Australian troops to support the yank led invasion of Iraq. The most hated man in the country.

Re-elected in 2004.

This is what I don't get about the whole thing. Like Morrison or not, like the LNP or not, even believe in climate change or not, it would have been so ******* easy just to be seen to have been doing the right thing. You wouldn't even have to actually do the right thing! Just give the public the impression that you give the slightest shit.

If we're being truly pragmatic and heartless about the situation, a disaster like this could have been a great PR opportunity for a Prime Minister, especially a LNP one who's going to have the media on his side. Say the right things, get the right photo ops and soundbites on the news. Look at what even a senile old campaigner like Rudy Giuliani was able to do for his popularity level after 9/11. Probably because he hadn't pissed off on an overseas holiday by 9/14.
