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

I don't recall ever using it in this thread, but feel free to count up and inform me. If you'd like an alternative (that I'm sure that I haven't used before) how about 'egregious drivel'?

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

You've deliberately ignored the difference between the use of the word 'empire' in it's literal and in it's figurative sense! When the first letter is capitalised it is used in it's literal sense -...

Yes but he's not vigorously promoting a Hard Brexit like Aaron Bank and J.R-M. But then to paraphrase Mandy Rice Davis, 'They would, wouldn't they!'.

Strewth mate - are you sure he can understand 'strine'? He probably started with 'bake necks'!

Re: The frog spoke

So the bridge structure's painted blue, and they've then gone round painting the rivet heads cream? I wonder who was give that job!

Re: The frog spoke

I guess the rivets are on a structure that needs to be waterproof, as it looks like they've been fitted with a sealant.

Re: Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens.

That's interesting Paul, do you have any examples?

I took one look at a couple of f1.4 images, saw that they were soft, and assumed that it was to be expected. Maybe I need to try again.

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

Yes, I noticed that suggestion in the news some time ago, but not much publicity has been made of it. It would be very interesting to see just how many arch Brexiteers have money in these tax havens....

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

Glad to meet another Mervyn Peake fan Otto, though I think that the TV adaptation didn't do the book(s) justice. The radio adaptations were far better - and of course the books.

Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens.

I bought a Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens recently to use on my E-P5.

Initial impression is that it's mechanically well made and handles nicely. What I find really remarkable is the 'light gathering power'...

I understand that The Spectator is a journal owned by the tax exile right wing Barclay Brothers.
