Thanks for those comments Alan.
What you say makes me feel even more that most of the more prominent remain campaigners were either some of the most arrogant oeople who ever existed. Or were closet leavers deliberately sabotaging the remain argument.
I was very surprised we had the referendum when we did as Cameron originally said 2017. Almost…[Read more]
Like it or not it would appear very unlikely we will have any further vote on brexit.
Although it isn’t unknown for politicians to go back on what they say. However what is being said at the moment on all sides is, the decision is made and the UK will be leaving the EU.
Exactly how this is acheived is not very clear and I am sure there is some…[Read more]
This is far more complex than you are trying to present, under the rules of the EU Greece should never have been allowed to join, so that is a failing of the EU. In fact the books were deliberately fiddled to get them in, just makes it worse.
The Ukrainians were actively encouraged to become more militant in favour of ties with Europe…[Read more]
Interesting reading the comments on here, the supplementary polling questions about the EU found that most ‘leave’ voters were not motivated by just economic arguments. Whereas ‘remain’ voters were looking almost exclusively at the economic part of the debate. It was/is certainly true that Brexit will at the very least cause issues in the markets…[Read more]
When I was at college many years ago we used to have a sarcastic way of describing this type of ‘news’ story.
We would say “Must be true, I read it in the Sun!”
In other words “It’s complete B*** S***”
Just saying it was published in the Sun is enough to debunk the whole story.
There was also a ‘thing’ called ‘The Sunday Sport’ that printed…[Read more]
I saw today that a fire started at the mosque near where I live in the UK.
It didn’t look like an accident. The fire brigade and police attended and it was all over in about 5 minutes.
However this doesn’t bode well for the future.
A few more attacks and it could start to get quite nasty in the other direction. It must be the last thing most…[Read more]

Yes, something lost in translation. But the likes of Ken Ham will love it!
Maybe there is trust for a machine as it has no vested interest in taking them the wrong way? In truth the article is really saying the researchers were actually guiding the result, the error was not with the […]

A bunch of mysoginist b……ds at their worst. The more I hear from these ‘men’ with a serious inferiority complex the more I dislike them. Obviously so fearful of women.
I don’t care for any threats of jihad […]

Yes Alan. What a strange paradox ‘religiously open minded’.
Still with any luck people like that are headed in the right direction, much better than a bunch of right wing evangelicals.
Perhaps a better label for […]
We’re all born atheist. To become religious we have to learn it as we grow up. I strongly suspect it is religion that is the new idea. Quite clearly all religions are different, and must therefore be wrong (well […]

Please do all you can to get better, as soon as you can. All mankind needs you.
And many many thanks for all you have done to date.
My warmest wishes.
I have known many muslims and I would say most of them are far more serious about the truth than many christians. They were far more prepared to engage in rational debate than most christians, who just semmed to […]
Well maybe they’re right, we should be just as blunt about all religious beliefs. Including the Christian fundamentalists and creationists.
Also not forgetting to be just as blunt about the intellectual abilities […]

I am sure we still don’t know enough physics to be able to know if it is practical for us to travel over interstellar distances.
Also there is the alternative method where we evolve or make ourselves into […]

Oh! How ironic. Did you know Trump has ended up with a wind farm right next to his new golf course in Scotland.
Yes that’s got to be right, as I say above tidal flow should be great for the UK.
But they’re not to to keen to get on with it at government level so it seems.
My best guess for a technical reason can only be […]
