  1. Excellent TV series. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Definitely worth watching again.
  2. The whole world has just seen the EU make a huge mistake, try to deflect blame and then act aggressively towards the UK and threaten them over something that isn’t the UK’s fault, slap-bang in the middle of a global crisis. I think this will cost the EU dearly in the future. Would you want to form an alliance with a group that behaves like that, at a time when global cooperation is needed? Apologies for duplicated post.

  4. Oh dear. I don’t think anyone’s going to forget this incident in a hurry. During a global pandemic, when the whole world needs to get together for the sake of humanity, the virtuous EU behave like that!?! The mask has slipped somewhat...
  5. Isn’t Stubley Meadows just after Silk Gardens, but before Beaver’s Patch?
  6. Reminds me of Cormac McCarthy’s ‘Blood Meridian’. Except that was people’s scalps....
  7. Yes. The distance and steps between a member of the electorate’s vote, and action by the EU, was a legitimate and known concern of many, I recall.
  8. Who is splitting hairs and needs to look at themselves in the mirror?
  9. No. I didn’t say the wording on the bus meant nothing. I’m saying that people have gotten upset about an imagined promise. The bus slogan was a very cleverly worded piece intended to stir emotions of wasting money on a distant bureaucratic organisation and instead funding a much loved national institution (deliberate use of Logo). It intentionally does not promise to give £350m every week to the NHS. Objectively, there within the slogan could be the mistruth about exactly how much money is sent every week. But what people seemed to have gotten upset about was an imagined promise to give the NHS £350m every week. There simply was no promise to do this. This is politics; it’s all about avoiding responsibility and claiming triumph for doing nothing. ‘Unprecedented’ seems to be the word used these days to preempt any responsibility for future failings. You may also have noticed how politicians now say that they ‘want’ to do something, rather than say they ‘are’ going to do something. Thisting...... it’s all about making sure they don’t commit to anything.
  10. I didn’t say it was ok. I’m also not running a country.
  11. Agreed. People seemed to get very muddled up with who was just campaigning and who actually had the power to make things happen. The bus slogan never actually promised anything, and yet people got in a right state about it (and still do!) “We send the EU £350 million a week. Let’s fund our NHS instead.” It’s merely a suggestion, worded very carefully as to not commit to anything.
