You stopped in the first half of the 18th century.

Aren't you the one who is always complains when someone quotes from the past?

It must be sad for you living in a world in which you are so out of touch with reality..
There must be some 1950s reinactment society you can join, if they will have you.

Here you are bringing Churchill into the equation :rofl:

I am aware of that. I was questioning LIW's belief that the report 'posted' was written by someone other than Emily Dinsmore a student.

And the number of unemployed increased in Spain by 17,200 people during the first quarter of the year.

Oh dear, this new found Eu unity didn't last to long,
....according to der spiegel.


Merkel scolds Juncker – Westmonster

"The first cracks in the EU’s united façade on Brexit are beginning to appear with Angela Merkel (of all people) slapping down European Commission President, and all-round cad Jean-Claude Juncker for briefings against the Prime Minister.

According to German broadsheet Der Spiegel, which has close links with the German government, relations between the German Leader and her usually pliant counterpart in Brussels have “soured” after Mrs Merkel accused Juncker of “inflaming” relations with the United Kingdom over Brexit.

Part of last week’s leak to the German press on the Juncker’s dinner at Downing Street included comments made by the Commission President in a phone call to Merkel early the next morning when he said Theresa May was “living in a different galaxy” on Brexit.

Brussels has gone on an outrageous attack in recent weeks, hoping to bully the British government into thinking it is totally ignorant of the EU and international negotiations, putting Merkel in a difficult position. Merkel, like Juncker and co. is an EU fanatic, yet at the same time, is reluctant to destroy relations with the UK and jeopardise preferential access to the UK’s lucrative market.

German business would be incandescent and Merkel is back up for election later this year."

What?

I have almost no beliefs at all, btw, but my comment was specifically as to the editor, writers and owner of that site. I don't think I mentioned the column writer at all did I :confused:

The post that you replied to quoted the article, written by Emily Dinsmore a university student about a YouGov study.
I couldn't understand your reply--"Unsurprising conclusion" of the editor, I enquired if you ('thought' then instead of 'believed') that he had written it!

I 'assume' you don't agree with her!

No, I don't think he wrote it. Particularly since it had someone else's name on it.

As for agreeing with her, as someone who works in marketing I know that you can survey people and get pretty much any response you like depending on who is taking the survey, what questions you ask and how you ask them. So I don't put much stock in them either way.
