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

Yes, of course. I was being partially ironic.

Someone has to pay, state and/or individuals, and if UK business suffers we as a nation are going to have a lot less to pay with.

Re: Man with phone in hand.........

Based on personal experience I’d say he’d be safer to do that in tourist areas in most Asian countries than in most Western European ones :D

Re: Olympus 45mm f 1.2 vs PanLeica 42.5mm nocticron

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

Indeed.
Presumably all those who do actually want to reduce immigration to the 'tens of thousands' are independently extremely wealthy (or have caring children who don't have to work). People like...

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

Interesting.
One further relevant point follows on from your quote there: "The Asian vote was split about 50 per cent for Labour, 10 per cent Conservatives and 15 per cent Liberal Democrats." (I...

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

Itís worth remembering that around 50% of net U.K. immigrants are non-EU.

They are of course not subject to EU free movement, and theoretically are supposed to satisfy a points system, such has...

One point about chlorine-washed chicken: I would be amazed (and deeply saddened) if this ever got past first base with the UK electorate on animal husbandry grounds. I predict there would be a social...
