#OTD 1971: House of Commons backed Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath and, by a majority of 112, voted for Britain to apply to join the EEC - the European Economic Community.
@JeremyCliffe @davidallengreen We will then be put in the same position as the 2008 movie Swing Vote, and Kevin Costner will decide who wins. I'm pretty sure it's in the constitution somewhere.
Look away now if you’re of a nervous disposition...
There’s an unlikely but conceivable scenario (Biden flips Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, otherwise states vote as in 2016) in which #election2020 produces a 269-269 tie in the electoral college.

The government will not provide hungry children with half-term lunches and its asylum policy is having deadly consequences and its Covid policy is making pandemic worse and UK is effectively leaving EU trading bloc in a few weeks with no plan and none of this should be normal
The author of this tweet is being misleading, in order to defend his or her previous lie. The current tariff on soya sauce from Japan is zero, due to the EU/Japan FTA which the UK applies until the end of the year. The UK and Japan do not currently trade on WTO terms. https://twitter.com/tradegovuk/status/1321194448710225920
Under WTO terms, the tariff on soya sauce is 6%. Under our deal, they will be 0%.

At the start of September, Westminster magistrates court started hosting behind-closed-doors prosecutions of coronavirus lockdown breakers.
I asked taxing questions like, er, what happened in the hearings.
