Re: In or out?

What bothers me is something which AFAIK is not bei...

Re: In or out?

This is an interesting read: The ultimate Brexit counterfactual Imagine a scenario where it was not Britain leaving the European Union but one of the other member states, whilst Britain was remaining. It is worth considering because it helps us to understand how—in the real scenario of Brexit—the E...

Re: In or out?

Is there any way of seeing this crap situation in a better light. It is all so depressing - is there a decent humanist answer? IMO being a humanist, if it means anything, means being committed to the general good, and also a general scepticism about the limits of human wisdom, which translates into...

The Brexiters will have a lot to answer for.

Re: In or out?

I watched last week's "Question Time", which is increasingly and predictably dominated by the Brexit mess. I would just like to focus on one argument over the "no-deal" scenario. This is that Britain must appear - and become - prepared for this outcome, because to fail to do so w...
