Re: In or out?

I guess that I find articles like this, by a professional, aimed at professionals and with a cheerfully practical lack of oratory, more scary than the stuff of politics - which still gets dismissed as scaremongering: http://www.politics.co.uk/opinion-formers/chartered-institute-of-taxation-ciot/art...

Today the Equality and Human Rights Commission released ...

Re: In or out?

the Irish Question - so often (remembering my A Level history) a thorn in British flesh. Now ISTM the most intractable side of the silly Brexit project. Everyone wants a soft border to continue between Britain and the Republic, but how can it be maintained if Britain leaves the Customs Union? The D...

Re: In or out?

Ian Dunt's Friday email: The chief obstacles to Brexit do not come from its opponents, but from the incompetence of those trying to deliver it. This fact has largely escaped Remainers, who often worry that there is no-one to lead their side of the argument. In reality, no political figure - regardle...

Re: In or out?

Everything you need to know about Lexit in five minutes The EU is basically a social democrat project, based along German or Scandinavian lines. That's probably too right-wing for some people, and it's certainly too left wing for others. But it has a lot of space there for a wide range of political...

Re: Science videos

A youtube channel well worth subscribing to is Tom Scott's . He has several themes of videos: Things you might not know, Amazing places, Built for science, etc. They tend to be very short - just a few minutes - but I dare you to try to find something that's not interesting or something that does not...

Re: In or out?

When will this madness end? Brexiters are retreating deeper into fantasy land As the realities of Brexit become ever more apparent, Brexiters are retreating ever further into a fantasy world of their own. To take just a couple of the many examples this week we had, first, Christopher Chope MP who am...

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

Except for the bits that are missing from some bibles... How can they 'reveal' the same message if some don't have large chunks of the that message? the funniest of these missing bits is the word "not" in the so-called Wicked Bible, which commands us to commit adultery: https://en.wikiped...
