Re: New Flight Endurance Record

That didn't take long did it? :(

Will this thread also be locked during the hours of darkness? :rolleyes:

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

Thinking of forum fund raising opportunities; perhaps we could have a Swear Box for naughty language or being politically incorrect? I think the latter could be a very slippery slope of spending for...

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

Maybe then we should have a second political thread to enjoy after the watershed, with adult language allowed? :D

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

A very large percentage of politicians are also lawyers, so they are very good at arguing dubious points of law and half-truths that may be in their client's interest, but nobody else's.

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

Despite all the rhetoric about Brexit here, on social media and elsewhere there doesn't seem to be any organised campaign to force a rethink. Compare that with the mass protests against the Iraq War...

Yes, but he had to be pushed!

For weeks there were questions in the media wanting to know what Jeremy Corbyn's stance was on leaving the EU.

By choice I suspect he would be much happier if we...

Yup. If you want to build on green fields around here you only need to make an 'anonymous donation' to a certain political party and 'Bob's your uncle' as they say. :rolleyes:

Interesting. And for the newer MacBooks there is no alternative way of charging.

Hopefully these machines will all be protected by reliable security software? :rolleyes:

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

Why would you not add Jeremy Corbyn's head to the spikes on London Bridge? He was hardly Pro EU in the run up to the referendum was he?

If Corbyn had backed David Cameron by saying that we should...

Maybe we could be invited to sponsor threads as a fund raising exercise. That way they would have to stay open. ;)

John, you are from the North East so you presumably know the area well? However, I suspect you live in a leafy town or village rather than a deprived city suburb?

To answer your question, my own...

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

Good point, although EU negotiators have always said that we would be welcome to return. I doubt that it would be cheap though. More like taking out life insurance at 99 I would think! *yes

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

OK, I can live with that. As I have said I would rather remain, especially now we know more about the negative aspects of Brexit.

But by the same token can we also scrap any future election...

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

OK then; if we accept your ultra-pessimistic doomsday outlook what exactly do you say that should we do? Overturn the EU referendum, or hold a second, third, fourth and fifth referendum until you get...

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

Fair comment, but what should we do?

A second referendum seems to be the favourite option but so far has been ruled out by the present government. In any case what happens if the Leavers win...

Re: Sympathetic Wives

I had a dream that I was on the sandy beach of a desert island dying from thirst, and that my wife came running to rescue me with a bottle of water.

It doesn't seem so.

What would the 'advantages' compared with using (say) a Mamiya or Bronica?

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

Just read this thread from the beginning.

I use the term hypothetical because negotiations with the EU are on-going, and nobody knows for sure what the end results will be.

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

So does Norway make the biggest contribution to EU funds?
