We do. We only tick the one box though - elections every 5 years. The last 2 being May/Corbyn and Johnson/Corbyn suggests the first prize is a date with Katie Hopkins and the second prize is 2 dates with Katie Hopkins. It's a sham democracy really and as explained by the OP it's about to become even more of a sham.
I have suffered from a mild depression in the past few months. Something that has helped me in keeping me sane during my self-isolation is my pet cat. She's a botherer and very good at it. She creates chores that I have to do and I think this has helped to break up the boredom. "When Saturday comes" has become a really significant mantra for me now and the football really keeps me rooted and able to remember what day of the week it is. TWTD has also been a great help. I value those who disagree with me because without the challenges to my world view I'd probably think that everything is OK and it isn't.
A dunked milk chocolate digestive melts the chocolate into a creamy layer that's just yummy. The dark chocolate one doesn't have that creamy yum. Hobnobs are a poor dunker as they leave wet crumbs at the bottom of the cup which stops you having a second cup from the teapot without getting up and rinsing the cup in the sink. Tea-time requires 2 cups with no interruptions.
2 years ago we finished 4th in the World cup. He's now relying on aging has-beens and youth. He's making players play out of position. No decent right-back. We can't even compete in the Nations cup. Seems to be modelling his career on Lambert.
The Nations league seems to be like an insurance policy. If you qualify in your play-off group then you don't need it. Screw up and you can fall back on it. England got 6m euros for finishing 3rd in the last competition so it's not a complete waste.
If you look at the results, the groups for Euro 2020, to be played in 2021, are labelled A,B,C..... These new groups are A1,B1... which might mean they are for another qualifying competition such as the World cup which will be played Jan 2024 because its Qatar which is sizzling hot in June. Football calendar really messed up at the moment.
I've been watching YouTube vids of CNN, MSNBC, NBC etc. which show these polls and I'm surprised out how they rely on small sample numbers. You have to pause the vid to see the numbers but they're clearly shown. Sometimes it's about 500 with a +/- of 5%. In the UK, it's at least 1000 and sometimes 5000 and we get it wrong a lot of the time. That said, I agree with your earlier post that Trump would be bragging about his poll numbers if they were close to favourable and he's not.
