...the chancellor has denied the former but not the latter.

So did he deny saying "even a woman can drive a train" or deny that women can drive trains? With a Tory it's hardly obvious in context.

Since I have no idea how much they are paid, and he does, I cannot disagree with him.

Conservatism is the belief that you can make the future better by pretending it will never come. There is no situation where being a strict conservative can be accurately described as anything other than "stupid". Here, we see proof that this maxim is constrained by neither arbitrary nor significant geographical borders.

Conservatism is nothing more than the choice to be wrong no matter what the question is.

A war between those who want to screw people immediately and those who want to drag it out?

Mr Hammond is fighting inside Government for a "soft" Brexit - one, he argues, that puts jobs and prosperity first and would involve a transitional arrangement with the EU. But it is a vision that has put him at odds with Brexiteers such as Boris Johnson and Liam Fox.

Yup

I was asking myself the other day just what conservatism means anymore. I think you answered that just fine if a little brusque.

The most interesting thing about Theresa the First,
Is that she was 5'6" at the start of her term,
But only 4'8" tall at the end of it.

Scratch the surface of a conservative and you get someone who prefers the past over ANY future.

The Brits have had quite a few civil wars, and quite a few more have been threatened from time to time.

He's a Tory.  His "generous" position is that any compensation for workers that does not include generational serfdom and mandatory rape by the local gentry is too high.

Well, to be fair IIRC your profession isn't focused on performing on stage in front of adoring fans. I drive a truck. I'm fat. But if my money depended on stage presence and tied up into being a rock star? I would have made different choices and kept my weight training up.

Many entertainers do a lot of work to maintain themselves. I'm considering going in front of the camera and I'm looking at dropping 100 lbs or more because I would like to be taken seriously. That would put me back at my high school weight when I was lifting.

Doesn't count as a civil war unless they clear out an airport and line up against each other for a big fight.
