What "rank" are you now, Alan? "Spokesman", "Campaigner" . . . ?

But I agree with Alan C., if you and others do not respond to such things nowt gets done.
Oh, serial complainer, at least!
Ah, "Campaigner" then!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Do I get thrown out of here for appearing in an 'Advent Calendar'?

Recorded this yesterday for the Cosmic Genome...

Director of The Nightingale Collaboration Alan Henness talks about the welcome end of NHS referrals to Glasgow’s Homeopathic Hospital.

Listen to the other days. Some are far more interesting!

Hmm, considering the subject matter I think we can allow you to stay.

Apart from that if we voted you out maybe the boss would "vote us out" as well! :D

Perhaps another small step in the advent of a new, true scientific age?

Very good content, Alan. I thought you made your points well.



... but, if I may be hypercritical with the intent of triggering future improvements:
* That background music was dire! (& too loud) - it was a relief when it stopped for the last few seconds.
* I found the "wandering and randomly zooming" camera to be really distracting.
* I think it would have worked much better as an "interview" format, in a less-stark environment (although wooden panellng is far preferable to the faux tropical beach scenes beloved by the likes of the TatMaggot).

...just my £0.02 -- do with it what you will :wink:

It was filmed in Conway Hall with me sitting on the edge of the stage. I must admit I never heard the music...

I didn't notice the music at all on my first listen - wonder if that was dubbed in later?

I gave a talk on Tuesday at Nottingham Skeptics in the Pub. It went well and that had a fantastic canal-side venue, complete with two canal boats moored up inside the pub!

Anyway, someone reviewed it so I thought I'd share it... It's not often I am compared to Elliot Ness... :dance:

Alan, you are far too modest. I'm sure I recall Athena (posting elsewhere) recently identifying you, from behind, in the studio audience on Pointless. If I recall correctly, the identifying feature was a very large, approximately circular, centre-parting.

Yup, good interview there, Alan. :thumbsup: I learned from that.

The one with the Christian protester was well done as well, he will hopefully go away withe the idea that all skeptics are not rabid atheists reinforced. Will listen to rest later.
