Re: 2015 UK General Election

Oh dear. You guys do seem to be particularly upset that a democratically elected goverment is now rolling out its plans to govern. Perhaps we should all call for another election so that this time you get the result that you want.

Re: Correlation v causation

Yes, correlation vs causation is a fascinating subject area. It brings me to the subject of high heels. An American cancer specialist, Dr David Agus claims (I'm not sure if this is peer-reviewed) that wearing high heeled shoes can lead to increased risk of Alzheimer's (as well as heart-disease and c...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

me too. Steven, do you ever imagine yourself poor and suffering from spending cuts which actually affect you seriously? No. Do poor people ever imagine themselves rich, and earning so much that they put themselves in the top tax bracket? If they did, they'd probably vote Tory. Do I understand corre...

Re: Music

Alan, please could you enlighten me on what this was so I can listen to the original?
Animist, the first part is the song "Kashmir", from the Zeppelin double album "Physical Graffiti". Allegedly Robert Plant's favourite Zeppelin track.

Re: 2015 UK General Election

Oh, I'm sure I'm better off financially as well. Pity about those less fortunate, though, particularly when many leading economists are saying that austerity was never needed. Ok, but I can't vote for them - they have to vote for themselves. Surely the results of the election prove that more people...

Re: Insults

One of the best ones I heard was from Daniel Finkelstein, originally a member of the SDP/Liberal Alliance. Invited to Norwich to give a political speech, he arrived after a long train journey, only to find that the audience consisted of the inviter, and one other, a young man. Finkelstein, true to h...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

Well there we are. After nearly five months of politicians electioneering, we finally have a result. And what a result! Unbelievable! I have to tell you I slept badly on Wednesday night. At that point it seemed very likely that we were going to have some form of Labour minority government, loosely s...

Re: Are there Humanist Missionaries? Should there be?

Why do you think that is Compassionist? Do you think that Northern Ireland is more religious than the rest of the UK, or maybe less tolerant of 'no religion'?

Re: An epetition that could do with some support

Good point Nick - I hadn't thought of that. I have another suggestion. If we can possibly acquire the email address of every constituent living in Bosworth, perhaps we could then email each of them to point out their MP's shortcomings and buffoonery. If he fails to hold on to his seat in the forthco...

An epetition that could do with some support

Just when you thought it was all calming down, it all kicks off again. A slightly bonkers Tory MP, David Tredinnick, who is MP for Bosworth, Leicestershire, and should know better, has decided that astrology should play an active part in decision making within the NHS. Oh dear, you may think, but it...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

Altfish, your comments about HS2 were interesting and insightful. However it was my understanding that HS2 proposed a high-speed rail link between London and Birmingham . I wasn't aware that it included any links to any cities north of Birmingham. Surely that is some form of "HS3" which (I presume) ...

Re: Forcing Non-Religious Parent to take Children to Church

I fear that the Telegraph story is biased, one sided and potentially inaccurate. I've searched the internet but couldn't find any other reference to this story other than newspapers that referenced back to the Telegraph story.
