>Britain was supposed to wake up on Friday with the political clarity, finally, to begin formal negotiations to leave the European Union, a process scheduled to start in 10 days.

>Instead, the country is staring at a hung Parliament and a deeply damaged Prime Minister Theresa May, her authority and credibility fractured by her failure to maintain her Conservative Party’s majority in Parliament.

>Ignoring demands that she resign, the prime minister said on Friday that she would cling to power by forming a minority government with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland.

>Because the Conservatives won the most seats and the most votes, Mrs. May gets the first chance to form a new government, despite winning only 318 seats, 12 fewer than in 2015, and short of a formal majority of 326 in the 650-seat House of Commons. The Democratic Unionists won 10.

>But minority governments tend to be fragile and short-lived, and many expect that Mrs. May will be a lame-duck prime minister, that she may not last as long as a year and that she will not lead her party into another election.

Cargo just sails through on the French side of the channel. And probably a good amount of economic damage to the British due to embargoes and lost trade and so on.

Not to mention that the UK is only barely a naval power these days. They need to have the French fly an Atlantique out to sweep for snoopers whenever one of their SSBNs leaves for a patrol.

Meh, that's one way to look at it. We are a net importer from the EU, so hurting the UK is as detrimental to them as it is to us. The only sector that dominates in the EU is the city and even then the clamp down on salaries and the fact the UK has said it could become a tax haven off the EU coast should really out the kaibosh on the relocation of firms to Frankfurt.

>>116971
There is fuck all Brussels could do to get it's grubby mitts on money per-say but it would scupper any possibility of a free trade agreement. Which as 972 said would cost everyone lots and lots of money.

>>116972
Second rate naval power, there's the UK and (arguably) the French who can operate extended long range missions (other than the Naval hegemon that is the USA). Anglo-French Naval treaties go both ways my dude, its a con to save the cash they would spend maintaining two separate fully capable navies when they can just borrow bits here and there to plug the gaps.

A Washington judge on Friday ordered a retrial in the case of an activist who was arrested after laughing during Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s Senate confirmation hearing in January.

Desiree Fairooz’s arrest and conviction had sparked outrage from those who felt that it set “a dangerous precedent” for cracking down on political protests.

In a statement, Fairooz called the retrial a waste of time and taxpayer money.

Judge Robert E. Morin, the chief judge of the D.C. Superior Court, threw out a previous conviction for Fairooz, 61, who in May was found guilty of two misdemeanor charges of unlawful conduct on Capitol grounds and faced up to six months in jail.

She had attended Sessions’s Jan. 10 confirmation hearing along with about two dozen other members from Code Pink, a progressive activist group that regularly protests at Congress.

In the middle of the hearing — just after Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) stated that Sessions’s record of “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well-documented” — Fairooz laughed audibly.

  Nearly a week after being struck in the head with a bullet that fell out of the sky in Hammond, Indiana, 13-year-old Noah Inman died this weekend, the Hammond Police Department announced on Sunday.

According to the Hammond Police, the boy was outside playing basketball with a group of children around 9:30 p.m. July 1 when he suddenly fell. Witnesses believed the boy was having a seizure and immediately called for an ambulance.

At the hospital, doctors found the boy was struck from a falling bullet.

"The Hammond Police Department would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to the Inman family. We wish you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts," Hammond Police Chief John Doughty said. "Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow. When reason fails, pray for peace. We will be praying with you."

It is believed that the gunfire came as part of a pre-July 4 weekend celebration.

"Unfortunately, this is a common action by many people who own guns in our city and they need to know this action has consequences and will be dealt with severely by the Hammond Police Department," the department said in a statement. "If you own a firearm, it is not to be used as part of a celebration."

A Go Fund Me page has been started to help the family with medical and burial expenses. Nearly $20,000 has been raised as of Sunday afternoon.

The boy's injury is not an uncommon one. On Jan. 1, a Texas legislator was hospitalized after being wounded by a falling bullet just after midnight. The bullet fractured Armando Martinez's skull, forcing doctors to perform a risky procedure to remove the bullet.

The idea is if you are able to stop then you aren't in immediate danger anymore, thus there is no more reason to fire anymore.

A decent defense lawyer might be able to spin it in your favor but a douche prosecutor and judge can still fuck you like a underprivileged youth in a Penn State shower. Again, a grey area legally, too much is relying on chance and luck.

Empty your entire load in one go removes the grey area usually, you fired until you literally could not fire anymore and even with a 6 shot revolver you put enough rounds in your target where even a lol 9mm could kill someone, save maybe a Democrat Senator. You make sure the threat is gone thus making sure any future possible legal threats are greatly diminished to the point of being nearer to impoosible.

It is a sad reality that yeah you can be fucked hard because you defended yourself, even in a relatively or entirely legal manner because its just your word backing you up.

was poorly phrased. If these people took both of those tests at the same time, that wouldn't demonstrate a difference over time, so it didn't make sense that the authors would do that.

Looking up the Flynn effect on Wikipedia, I kind of get what they're doing a bit better, but I don't understand what they accomplish by restricting their sample size so much.

And Create Federal Ranked-Choice Voting.

>If you want good job security, get elected to Congress. In 2016, the U.S. House had a 97 percent re-election rate, despite the latest Gallup poll placing the House’s approval rating at 21 percent.

>A big part of the reason why is the way we elect our representatives. The U.S. uses a winner-take-all, single-member district system. Those districts are often drawn in a way to privilege one party over another — which is called gerrymandering. So if you’re a Democrat living in a district drawn to include a huge number of Republican voters, your vote is purposely drowned out (and vice versa).

...

>Virginia Democratic Rep. Don Beyer authored and introduced the Fair Representation Act, which would enact a series of reforms designed to make our elections more competitive and open them up to more parties. Democratic Reps. Ro Khanna of California and Jamie Raskin of Maryland have co-sponsored the legislation.

>The bill would do three things: require all congressional districts to be drawn by independent redistricting commissions, establish multi-member districts, and have all districts use what’s known as ranked-choice voting (RCV).

...

>“The reform of Congress is one of the biggest priorities to empower citizens,” he said. “This would help with minority representation and more women because many times communities in a small population are shut out and multi-candidate districts would allow them to have proportional voice.”

A self-described "patriot" who went to Gettysburg National Military Park on Saturday following rumors that members of an alt-left group would be there to desecrate Confederal memorials, shot himself in the leg with his own revolver.

Authorities say Benjamin Hornberger of Shippensburg, Pa., accidentally triggered his revolver which was inside a leg holster.

U.S. Park Police quickly responded and applied a tourniquet. According to EMS personnel, the tourniquet was "likely a lifesaving measure."

Hornberger, 23, was taken to a local hospital and is expected to be OK, Katie Lawhon, a spokeswoman for Gettysburg National Military Park confirmed to Fox News.

Dozens of self-described "patriots" came to the national park after rumors that Antifa, an anti-fascist group, would be there.

Antifa has strongly pushed back on claims they encouraged members to crash events at Gettysburg.
