    it's probably not coincidental that there are no scheduled elections for three years after this

    Does anyone else get annoyed when people refer to the UK simply as "England"? I can sort of understand it if it's in a book which isn't particularly about politics, but when it is a political book, it's terrible scholarship.

    I think the people who get annoyed most are those in the UK who aren't living in England.

    Probably because England projects itself as being synonymous with the UK through popular media at times tbh.

    Former Peruvian President, Alan Garcia has killed himself as police came to arrest him over corruption. Very dramatic way to die.
