A little colour always cheers me up :D
There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating staying in EU.

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of staying in the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens will be caused by leaving EU?
3. Should the supreme court ruling on British subjects be based in UK?

Certainly not the only one!

My colour will be determined by a semi-random reassignment of one number in the hexdec code from AC's post:

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?

And a Happy New Year to you too, Jaywhat!

We should compile a list of New Years and celebrate them all!

The Alexandrian calendar in Egypt started on 29 August...
Several local provincial calendars were aligned to start on the birthday of Augustus, 23 September
... and so on, according to Wikipedia.

What a wheeze! :party:

As ever Alan
Tomorrow Shetland is closed, it's the most important holiday of the year.
We haven't gone this year, we took my mother last year though.
They've got a fine night weatherwise.
