edit: nm, they buried mention of a grant for < $62k a year housing in a chart, so this particular criticism is rescinded

“aimed at households making between $62,000 and $124,000 per year”

lmao fuck this

a lot of the appeal of debates in the house of commons goes away when the camera zooms wide and you can see that 5/6 of the house is off getting coffee somewhere instead of listening

also "disclosure triangles" sounds like a fake name, it sounds like you're doing a homer simpson bit about the metal dealy you use to dig food

this is the first time I've ever seen someone use a formal name for this UI widget, I've always just called them "fold-outs"
