New Statesman asks: Do you believe in the afterlife?

#1 Post by Emma Woolgatherer » April 9th, 2008, 11:18 pm

At the moment, 43% are saying yes and 57% are saying no. I know these things are silly and pointless, but if anyone feels like voting they can visit http://www.newstatesman.com/.

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?

I also read today that the once-great New Statesman continues with its religious propagation seam; another example today of giving a platform to pompous nonsense from a self-publicist and self-bettering 'clergyman'. Encouraging thought, to read in the psotings that there are some sane Christians willing to counter the cant nonsense fro some of their 'clergy':

'Jesus will appear again as judge of the world' (readers comments)
