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

From what I can see we have 78 MEP's, so only about 12% of the number of Westminster MP's. I haven't got a clue who our MEP is, which is just the point; I think they are so remote to most people that...

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

There is no #12!

It is not a case of 'worrying ourselves sick' but actually doing something positive to help the environment rather than taking it from granted that our skies, seas and land can...

Re: Andy Sands talk

Carmarthen Cameras, who I have bought several Olympus bodies and lenses from over the years, have advertised similar events in their area.

To the Brexit doom-mongers who predict financial ruin in the UK I would say; let he who doesn't use Amazon cast the first stone.

Amazon is already causing massive damage to the UK economy, and...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Norway is a wonderful country to visit with or without the aurora, but be warned, it is very very expensive!

You would probably need to visit Norway during the winter to see the aurora. On the...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Not necessarily. There are many factors which dictate how visible the aurora will be, so the fact that we get good displays in the northeast of England doesn't necessarily mean that those same...

Re: Aurora Lights, where?

Yes this is true, and I have said the same here before.

The aurora that we photographed at home were much more visible to the camera than to the naked eye. I would be interested to see what a...

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

Yes, that does paint a rather different picture.

Re: Newspapers read

Locking or deleting threads may well satisfy the need to feel in control but it denies the right to reply and allows indefensible comments to go unchallenged.

In my view one of the reasons this...

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

Maybe we should have an intelligence test before we are allowed to vote? Any such test should include some questions on basic economics.

As far as I am aware any man's or woman's vote is of equal...

I was referring to Personal Computers rather than mainframes, which I should have thought was obvious, but I have now amended my original post.

Re: Angry?

Got it in one John.

Again I wonder whether marketing and advertising is partly to blame?

It is well known that 'pester power' by children is far more effective than advertising to adults,...

Re: Clacton Air show

In the absence of a coach trip I would have thought the train might be the best way to get there.

The journey time is about two hours 30 minutes via London Liverpool Street.

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...
