Definition of Insanity

According to rumours, Albert Einstein once said "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result".

Another Referendum anybody?

I thought Einstein was probably an OK dude, but this shows he never learned to play a musical instrument!

And the definition of parliament is 'a secure institution that protects lawyers and politicians from the realities of the outside world'.

That is one of my own by the way.

Point taken John but he was an inspiration to others.

If we do have another referendum, please can we set a minimum majority of say 20% to overturn the status quo (or at least the status quo prior to 2015!). The main problem with the last one was the not the lies and corruption, it was the failure to require a decent majority one way or another. That is the definition of insanity in my book!

Make it the same as the Tories require in a ballot for industrial action.

48% to 52% means unfinished business. (Nigel 'Fromage')

There’s been plenty of that, and no doubt plenty more to come!
