Re: WTF Murders/Killings in the US

That isn't really as much consolation as you might at first think.

There are two things that need taking care of and the one doesn't make the other less important, even though both the gun and the...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Working under rigs has to be the most dangerous thing every invented. I really hope he doesn't decide to do that - it's well paid for a reason :scaredhair:

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

We had a vote (advisory), certainly. Frankly, both campaigns were appalling although for quite different reasons. Leave was mendacious, inflammatory and ugly, Remain was weak, ineffectual and lazy to...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Unclear. The course he chose is just civil engineering, but you can also get a diving certification in the second year which he is interested in doing. He is interested in marine/underwater stuff in...

Re: What made you smile today? Part III

Proper coppering.

But why do you lose your license over a train ticket?

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

That does seem like a reasonable analogy. The difficulty with the EU referendum is that it's policy, not people. So there are no specific people we can vote out if we don't like the look of it. There...

Yeah, he's a trainers guy (I doubt he knows what plimsolls are :) ).

And yes, the boots are for the course. As a civil engineering student apparently people will be dropping blocks of concrete and...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

What happens if you get another vote, on the same issue? Is that democratic?

How far apart do votes have to be in order to be democratic? Or how often should the electorate be consulted on...

Yet those may be your options, and one can only pick from the options that are actually available.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

It seems a bit doubtful that there is time to organize a new in/out referendum, but pro-EU Tories do see this as an opportunity for a power grab. Equally, of course, the knives are out for Corbyn and...

Re: What has p*ssed you off today...part II

Actually, we've all posted a load of nonsense on here - that's a large part of what makes it fun.

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

The writer of the post, and the interpretation of what was said, was me and the words you highlighted were mine.

The article is another matter.

Do you not agree that people are often lied to...

Hm, well, actually things were going fine, more or less, but then there was your first post on this thread.

This morning, I made a simple, politically-neutral, observation on a column in The...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Plenty of people have been deceived by politicians and those wielding economic power before now, don't you agree?

The idea that this makes them stupid is your conclusion, not mine.

Interesting column - options for bridging this pro-leave, pro-remain divide, and an opportunity to change the terms of the debate we have been forced into; namely, having to divide into one of two...
