    Just ordered an Ender 3 Pro from BangGood's UK warehouse. I've a small stack of things to print already. Any suggestions on good PLA brands? I've been pointed to Amazon Basic's as being good bang for buck, anything else?

    I think that the new ones coming out are larger than the ones ghat are out there now. (Thanks to Jangbricks for that insight)

    You may still be entitled to an emergency Proxy, as it hasn't arrived. Get in touch with them and check. They can certainly reissue the postal vote...

    The choice of who a voter would like as their MP, and why a voter would like them is up to the voter.

    Ultimately though, what that voter is voting for is the person, hence their name being in big letters. That's the legal up and down of it.

    If I had my way, party names wouldn't be on the ballot papers, just the candidate names, but I can see why they are, and the issues it would cause if they weren't.

    Hence Emergency Proxy.

    @croft Get in touch with the relevant Electoral Services Team asap, they are run off of their feet at the moment (working 12+ hours days in some cases) trying to sort this sort of thing for people, the more time they have to do it, the more chance there is of getting it down.

    It's really clear (I mean, more than that the EU referendum was just advisory clear) that you are voting for a candidate, not a party, because that is one of the defining features of the First Past the Post electoral systems.
    If the MP dies in office, then the seat is vacated, if you voted for the party, the party could just replace them.

    That people don't understand this should have been a warning for the EU referendum.

    I've only ever played the original version, not the new one. The modular bulkheads for it are amazing. I got given a copy of the base game by a friend, having managed to get my hands on the expansion cheap. The original game goes for like £100+, which is nuts.

    It's one of the best tabletop squad based shooter's I've ever played.

    I've still got my original Spyrer gang, and have managed to get my hands on a couple more of the standard gangs too.

    With the smaller gang sizes, it was one of the most affordable GW games ever I think

    I've a few Necromunda gangs about, had just started buying them up when GW re-released.

    One of the thing's I'm looking at getting a 3d printer for is to do bulkheads again. There are some nice ones floating round thingiverse.

    Can folks keep an eye out for it? Ta.

    The Jon Worth summary on Tactical voting is the best that I've found @hugo7
