Re: HS2 & other infrastructure projects

Heathrow to get London's extra runway?!

That's what the report said based on evidence, facts, science and cost...watch Boris and Cameron dodge and weave to try and get out of making a decision.

Re: Grexit?

Some points of view, to kick things off. This? This? Thoughts, anyone? Lies, damned lies and statistics! I don't know enough about economics to fully understand the implications, but virtually every article has an 'agenda' and will use statistics that suit their agenda and ignore contra arguments

Re: Scottish Devolution

Scotland may do some seriously good things about Land ownership But I think there are some very powerful, largely unelected forces that will object; and who can command every assistance from the Tory arse-licking pack, of course.

I find him to be one of the most obnoxious people on the planet. When Alex Salmond was cosying up to him he lost a lot of my respect.
