Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I think we'll go crawling back at some point - but it'll be at least 10 years, and maybe 15. When we do we'll suck up to whatever the EU ask us to - there'll be no other option. That'll mean...

I'm amazed how little he's talked about given that he's the parent of all this chaos. There was an article saying as much in the Guardian today:

On top of that, we've paid dearly over the years for the cooks to bake the cake.

All this constitutional talk reminds me of this speech:

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

In an attempt to break out of my Brexit depression, I've been looking for glimmers of hope that it might be a good idea after all. I remain unconvinced that the looming economic chaos can be...

But for some balance the other way - from the same paper:

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I feel much the same. The political class as a whole has badly let us all down.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Political moods Dave - after 18 years of Conservative government the country was ready for a change. And Tony Blair, like him or hate him, was a very effective politician.

Re: Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN

Seems I'm wrong :(

If the IQ is good, then it could be a winner. Smaller than the 45/1.2 and almost certainly a lot cheaper.

Re: Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN

It'll be huge since it's really an aps-c lens.

Personally, I find the 45/1.8 excellent and all I really need for portraits. If I wanted something better I'd go for the 45/1.2 which by all...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I think we're close to agreeing on something Dave!! :)

However, I'm not sure it's lack of belief in the UK that's at the core of our problems - it's lack of political leadership. And I'm not just...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Quite. And that's the whole reason why Brexit is a dumb idea economically. European car manufacturing has become tightly integrated with suppliers working across many countries. The UK can't just...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

You don't understand Dave. JIT manufacturing saves an enormous amount in terms of wasted production and it reduces inefficiencies in the manufacturing process. It also makes companies more able to...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

I think if we are to cut CO2 emissions to the levels we need then aviation will need to play a part. The only lever we have to control anything really is economics. The cost of flying needs to go...

Re: Using the P mode?

I don't use P mode, but I can see its a personal thing. The key thing about exposure is that photographers generally fall into two camps:

- A, P or S mode plus exposure compensation
- M mode...

So you don't believe it's making such a big difference. But people who have studied it MUCH more than you believe it IS making a big difference. They believe it because of the weight of evidence....

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Along with climate change, it seems that deniers want to believe all sorts of nonsense. Pick from any of:

- NASA never went to the Moon
- The earth is flat
- 9/11 was a conspiracy by the US...
