Re: Boris Gate

It is somewhat left-wing, yes, but unlike some of the tabloids I don't think it prints many downright lies. The Express' weather forecasts alone are sufficient grounds for me not to trust anything...

Re: Boris Gate

I can't speak for Jim but personally I'd trust the Graun any day over the Express, Mail or Torygraph. Unlike most of what pass for newspapers in this country it is not owned by wealthy barons with...

Re: Very big photo from Pen F

That tiny lens is a remarkable performer as that amply proves! Very happy with mine.

Re: Boris Gate

I had Bill, yes :)

You've got it in a nutshell, some politicians (mostly "Selfservatives" though by no means exclusively) change their principles entirely in their own interests rather than in the...

Re: Boris Gate

Both Bill's links are to articles some years old, presumably written before Boris and co found out about the anti-tax avoidance rules the EU are bringing in next January! Those rules may well result...

Re: Boris Gate

LOL - I didn't have to dig for it, it is linked from the North Yorkshire for Europe Facebook page. I actually thought that was a well reasoned article which made clear from where much of the...

Where did all this anti-EU rhetoric come from? This is illuminating, and the comments worth reading too:

Re: Boris Gate

Are you sure it wasn't a nickname, like Dusty Rhodes etc? :). I haven't personally met anyone with a famous name but I do know someone who gave her daughter her favourite footballer's surname as a...

Re: Boris Gate

Well, as a Remainer (who knew? :)) I didn't like the result, but had it been a decent margin I would have accepted it. Had it gone the other way by such a tiny margin I would have also accepted that...

Re: Boris Gate

It was badly drawn up simply because it didn't specify a minimum majority either way. It was almost inevitable that it would produce an inconclusive result, and so it did :). The result is...

Re: Boris Gate

Farage himself said he wouldn't, that such a result would be "unfinished business" and that's the crux of the problem. The referendum was badly drawn up and the result inconclusive. Had there been a...

Re: Boris Gate

By that logic we'd never have another election either! If this one goes ahead it'll be the second election since the referendum don't forget. It's not a question of getting the result we want, it's...

Re: Boris Gate

Indeed, a general election will solve nothing. The only way forward is a second referendum. A revocation of Article 50 would make the most sense but would be liable to cause unrest in some quarters!...

Re: Motorway Brexit signs.

Those signs have been up for years in some parts of the country. They are used for traffic information, "don't drink and drive" slogans etc and have nothing specifically to do with Brexit. They are...

Re: British Waterways

I believe in its early days BW operated a fleet of cargo carrying boats so this may be one of those, or a replica (like the large number of "Fellows Morton & Clayton" vessels you see everywhere!).

Re: 'Go Advanced' not working!

You didn't do a quick ctrl+A ctrl+C the second time before trying "Go Advanced" again then? The longer the message the more frequently I copy it to the clipboard just in case :) *chr
