Possibly to early for beer but would anyone be interested in a pre- meet meet up coffee and natter at TCR Waterstones? Then move over to wherever Marc plans to meet at noon.

Sorry Gloucester hardly counts as London the 100 miles each way being the giveaway  ??? I do however love the place to bits and spend time there when I can.

Whatever f*cked up rules AirBnB may have I think you will find in the UK it is the renters legal obligation to ensure you access to the property, as per the rental agreement or they are legally exposed and liable for alternative accommodation as well as refunding your money.

@Nighteyes any good local spot to meet up earlier? Don't want somewhere charging £16 for a coffee so probably not in south Kensington.

Will be in London Saturday and have to leave due to other commitment Saturday evening. I was hoping to stay in town for a couple of days but lucky really to be able to make this at all.

@Overlord any further details?

As above in the UK there are no censors for writing as for film. If this was a scene from a movie a director could portray the dialogue from a U-15 rating by context and visual imagery short of nudity. Exploitation being more of an issue than sexual content. The bar would be different in Eire. HTH but the question needs clarification.

After a humiliating defeat, Corbyn resigns. Labour are in chaos for a year or two before a charismatic, progressive middle political ground leader emerges. 

That was what they called Blair and really he was a sociopathic warmonger, more concerned with enriching himself than party or nation.

Working Tomorrow and not looking forward to it. Or looking forward to getting it out the way. People are naturally sorry and desire to express it, but the recently bereaved are surrounded by an awkward zone....

I think she feels she can strengthen her hand and oust opposition from her own party by doing so.
I agree Labour is not unified as the Blairites are still powerful and determined to sink Corbin. The Lib Dems are no longer a political force after they broke election promises to stay in a coalition government instead of forcing an election on the issues. I am not sure this will work. An anti Brexit protest vote could actually weaken her position.

Edit: Had not even considered Scotland in my initial thoughts. I suspect the SNP will maintain power but will lose a few seats and a proportion of the vote. I think the turn out will be the lowest in Scotland for years. A policy of maximising borrowing and cutting public services (bad circumstances forcing bad financial policy) and the call for another referendum will have proved divisive and damaging, but there is no credible opposition at the moment.

Also in the news Cressida Dick has no sense of irony.

Finished the Fell Sword by Miles Cameron it felt rushed and a bit rough in places compared to the Red knight, but an enjoyable tale nonetheless.

I think that made all the difference. You shall not be known as the book whisperer then.
