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?

Sorry :redface:
I once read somewhere "the best thing about being dead, is never having to apologize anymore"
Or something like that.

Yeugh :sick: what a horrible idea Alan - thanks for that!

Reminds me of a Jonathan Swift satire that we had to read at School called 'A modest proposal'. The letter / essay (?) advocated that posh English folk should eat the children of the Irish poor in order to manage the population in Ireland or something like that (it was a long time ago). Has anyone else heard of this?

You'd never guess I went to Catholic school on the W Coast of Scotland...... :D

I think a lot of people are suffering from the winter blues and just can't be bothered.

Short working month. The Uni closes down for two weeks at Xmas so everyone has to go on holiday. This means there are less 'working days' in this month for everyone so things are a bit hectic. (Which is why I am still here at nearly 7pm :sad:)

Although I am still getting time to look into TH! :party:
