This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums.

It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate.

Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts.

I've never really gotten the British political parties and I haven't been paying too much attention to the election coverage. Can someone explain what happened to me?

Okay, so

In April our Conservative Prime Minister called a snap election because she wanted to increase her quite-slim Parliamentary majority, so she could get Brexit done how she wanted with minimal opposition. It was expected that, because she seemed quite formidable and The People Wanted Brexit, she would win a tonne of seats in Parliament. (She also called an election because she took over leadership of the Conservatives last year when the previous PM quit, so she wanted to hush the people who moaned that she wasn't elected by the electorate - in the UK different parties have different ways of electing their leaders.)

But

Then

The Conservatives had a bad campaign. Theresa came across as cold - she refused to do a bunch of debates and the Conservative manifesto included some bad policies, like bringing back fox hunting, making old people sell their homes to get care for certain illnesses, ending fuel allowance for old people and ending pension security for old people. Most old people vote Conservative/most Conservative voters are old people. BAD MOVE THERESA DON'T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU.

Also, Labour - the main-ish opposition party - had a relatively good campaign. Their very-left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn is really popular with the youth vote, and a lot of young people are angry about Brexit, the Conservatives and the possibility of bringing back fox hunting. It was expected Labour would lose a tonne of seats, because a lot of Labour members think Corbyn is too left wing. The party has been very divided since he took over; it was assumed they would bomb.

But

Then

We had several weeks of politicians of all colours tearing shreds out of one another. BREXIIITTTTT hissed a lot of people. What about BREXXIIIITTTT. None of the parties had a lot of good ideas about Brexit negotiations/what was 'best for the UK'. The public are fed up with votes. People resented Theresa for calling the election. The Manchester bombing and London Bridge happened. People got tired and irritable.

And

Then

On polling day, a fuck tonne of people turned out to vote. Loads. Especially young people, who normally don't vote. It turned out that less people liked Theresa May than she thought. Maybe less people want a 'hard Brexit' (very little connection with the EU) than it was thought. More people like Jeremy Corbyn than it was thought. 

So

Then

The Conservatives are the biggest party in Parliament, but they don't have enough MPs to form a majority government (a 'hung parliament'). Because they're a minority government, they're doing frantic negotiations with a Northern Irish party, the DUP, because then they would have enough seats to form a majority and pass laws n shit. There won't be an official coalition like there was in 2010, because the DUP and Conservatives are too different, so they have to make deals on a law-by-law basis. This means everything, including Brexit stuff, will take longer. The opposition is very big now - Labour made relatively huge gains - so it will be harder for the Conservatives to push through unpopular policies.

Theresa May is no longer popular in her party. Jeremy Corbyn is now regarded by some as similar to Jesus. If May resigns/is pushed out, there may be an election in the autumn. No one fucking wants that. Watch this space to see who forms a minority government with whom. Be suspicious of the DUP; they have repeatedly blocked gay marriage in Northern Ireland and are anti-abortion. Lots of Conservatives are unhappy with the alliance. Lots of other Northern Irish parties are worried about the alliance too, and its implications for the Northern Irish peace process, but that's another story.

TL;DR It's not as bad as Trump, but it's pretty chaotic.

Okay. I had one of my British colleagues explain the parties to me, so now things are easier to understand lol. But she couldn't explain the election mess to me; your post is very clear! I think it's a pretty different situation from trump, since there is a whole lot of people who are very much for him. But the big similarity is that the legislation is very divided, which makes it ineffective. Also the divides within parties, i.e. Old school republicans vs. Trumpers, Bernie-supporting democrats vs. Hilary supporters (moderates vs. far-right/left.)

Haha thanks! I often think that people would be happier if the bigger parties split, eg Trumpers had their own party, Berine fans had their own party etc. Divisions within parties make getting elected harder, because candidates are undermined by their own colleagues, and less gets done because of internal power struggles. More parties = more choice = better representation. In theory, anyway, in Europe they have a lot more parties and there are a lot more coalitions, so things move more slowly.

I haven't been able to type anything that I felt was interesting or relevant to you guys, so I chose to not post anything... I still check the site almost every day though. Just came home from Denmark 🇩🇰 and I'm exhausted after a week with my family!

While typing this I realized my spellcheck thing on the phone now suggest emojis when I type some words! What is happening to the world??

Hey Sonia and Kerry! I saw your messages and wanted to say hi.  I am sorry for the radio silence on my end.  It's a long story, but I have been in a major life transition in recent months related to some new medical diagnoses and trying to balance that in addition to work and likely moving next month.  I miss you both! How have you been doing lately?  Any fun summer plans?

Hey! I hope everything's okay, if you need to offload you know where we are. You sound like you've been very busy on top of that. Are you moving due to work? 

I'm doing okay thanks, I'm getting a bit fed up with being constantly stressed about money (or lack of) and it's starting to really get me down. I feel like I need a fresh start sometimes.

Well, I don't know how to answer that question in short... it's a lot off conflict going on in my family, since they chose to foster my youngest brother, but some parts off the trip was great, other times I just wanted to pack my car and drive straight home. Now I'm on the couch with a cold that I caught in the middle of the vacation, so that didnt make it any better. 

I'm definitely getting old... working with youths make realize that im not as young as I like to think :P

Hi sulfur! Good to see you back, I've been missing you too! Sounds like you've had a lot going on. I've been busy lately, and now I'm trying to get rid off this cold before Sunday, cause I'm volunteering at this christian festival for the next week. It's gonna be lots off fun, but everything is better if I'm well :)

Money is frustrating... it's not that money makes you happy, but the lack off money definitely gets you unhappy...

I check in a lot too - I try to post every time I visit but there's not always anything to reply to and talking to yourself on the Internet is almost as bad as talking to yourself in real life...

Hey Sulfur! Good luck with moving. My house is being redecorated at the moment and it feels like I'm in a permanent state of stasis, it gets you down after a while.

Kerry I am with you with the money thing. Like where does it go and why is there not more of it. I've been doing internships for work and I just did a festival selling my art stuff so I'm nice and busy but GOD WHY IS THERE NOT MORE MONEY IN THOSE THINGS.

I check in here every once in awhile! I can't say my life is super busy, but I'm trying to be more social IRL so I guess I'm trying to get more busy, haha. 

I definitely feel you all about money. I've been trying to get side jobs for some additional income, but it's very hard since I already work full time.

You do photography, right? Have you thought about sites like Shuttershock or Society6? You can make some decent passive income on there, and you just have to upload images.

Morning! Well it's afternoon in the UK. I'm alrite, I came on here as part of my new 'I'm not going to waste time on the Internet and will instead take small breaks from work at strategic times' campaign. I've think I've been suffering from brownout (like burnout but way less drastic) and I'm trying to be more mindful in how I do things. So in a minute I'm gonna go back to getting shit done and all that. It's only been two days, but so far I do actually feel better.

How're you?

Hey Guys. Not sure if I posted about my degree and how my life's been going but...

I graduated with a 1st Class degree in Film. It certainly surprised me because I could never have imagined getting a First, just because they're quite hard to achieve. Honestly I thought I was going to come away with a 2:2 or at best, a 2:1, but I managed to get 3% over the first class threshold. At my film premiere, just before I had received the results, my lecturer told me that I had got a First and I didn't believe him, although I never thought he'd lie to me, he had no reason to, it was just hard to wrap my head around it. My other lecturer then approached me and the first thing he said to me was that my dissertation had taught him a lot of things, which was quite the compliment. Although I knew my dissertation was good, I already saw that I got 75% which is very high, the compliment made me feel even better, but getting a First overall was beyond what my aspirations and goals were, it also means I could do my Masters degree at some point too, so getting a First opens doors for me. I'm happy.

I recently had an interview as a media lecturer (literally a week after I found out my degree results) and although the interview went well and the feedback was mostly positive, I didn't get the job, but it was a learning experience. I realised how much I have grown. I've been harassing TV studios by sending them my CV every couple of days. One studio in Peterborough i think i've applied for separate jobs there about 10 times. They're probably sick of seeing my name, but hey, consistence is key, right?

I hope you're all well, thought I'd check in and let you guys know how I've been doing. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I'll try to check in more often ^_^

Happy IMCRD Kerry. :wub:

Ashley! Congrats on your first, I know how hard you've worked. I've been harassing employers as well, the trick is to apply to as many posts as possible, plus send speculative enquiries, then follow up everything and keep at it until you hear a yes. It worked for me, anyway.
