  1. So basically the chairman of an EA used a tenuous link to current events to publicise his company in a national rag. A rag whose readership it's predictably easy to wind up with stories about 'political correctness'.
  2. Obviously I wasn't as clear as I hoped, so I'll see if I can do a little better. I wasn't asking you to judge future events at the time, or pre-empt them in any way. I was and still am asking you to describe an imagined future in which you'd be forced to admit you were wrong about leaving the EU.
  3. The question cuts both ways. If the UK leaves without a deal, as a remainer (I'm assuming you are), what set of circumstances would leave you in the position of having to say you'd got it wrong and we the country was right to leave all along?
  4. Sorry, I must not be making myself clear, I've no idea how you managed to read that into what I've written. I don't think I even wrote the word 'referendum in any of my posts. I was wanting to know if after a no deal, any scenario exists where you'd admit you were wrong? Is there any set of future facts which would let you say, 'I was wrong to want to leave the EU'?
  5. Sorry, didn't realise you'd edited your post and I hadn't seen your additional thoughts. You're perspective would carry more weight if the status quo was that we were out of the EU and thinking about joining. Surely if you're a proponent of a change to the staus quo, you'd want that change in order to improve things. If that's not the case, the I'm puzzled about what would motivate you.
  6. Surely you must be able to point to something other than this circular logic? There must be some improvement from leaving the EU other than we wont be a member of the EU. If this is really what it boils down to for you, then you're in the enviable position of never being wrong about it as its self fulfilling.
  7. That kind of sounds like project fear on steroids. If in another 10 years, the EU doesn't turn into the superstate you fear, would you then admit you'd got it wrong? If not, can you describe any future situation where you would say that the idea of leaving the EU without a deal was the wrong decision?
  8. Fair enough if the economic impact of leaving wasn't a major factor for you, but there must be something you are hoping will change for the better by leaving the EU without a deal. Are you able to point to something you anticipate will be improved by leaving and offer a time frame for that improvement to occur, after which you'd admit you'd got it wrong?
  9. In the case of no deal, what would it take for you to admit you'd got it wrong? This is supposed to be a question for both the leave and remain side of the debate. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, what events/outcome would be necessary, and in what time-scale, before you'd admit your previous analysis was incorrect and the other side of the debate was right? As someone who thinks we should remain, I'd need to see tangible economic improvements for the whole country. And being very generous, I'd want to see them within about two years. If all we had, was some abstract idea of 'more' sovereignty, this just wouldn't cut it for me. Additionally, if any of the predictions which had been labelled as 'project fear' came to pass, then I'd need the tangible benefits to exceed them.
  10. Just curious how that reaction goes? I thought one of the processes used to manufacture the chlorine dioxide used in disinfection required hydrochloric acid as a reagent.
  11. OK, I didn't realise that. Who is obliged to notify HMRC? One of the banks involved?
  12. Its my intention that when I move out of the property I'm renting to let HRMC know the dates we rented the property, the amount we paid and the landlords details. I've no reason to suspect that our landlord is dodgy, and if they're not, it wont be a problem for them
  13. Under any other circumstances wouldn't we already have some government props for the market by now? The continuing Brexit débâcle seems to have have paralysed the government and pulled their focus from everything else, including housing. My feeling is that they'd have to get any props in before sentiment shifts, otherwise they'll have no effect. Is it already too late for props and if not, will Brexit continue to occupy all government activity?
  14. But then that's nothing you couldn't already do with the American's GPS. Sorry I probably misunderstood your comments. I thought you were worried that they were going to be able to 'track you from space' without your knowledge.
  15. Do you think this means that the satellite could track a car without any requirements on the car itself? Surely this would mean the cars would need to be fitted with GPS receivers and then connect to some sort of radio network?
