Re: ClimateChange - EndTime 2050 - Disturbing Report Sheds Light on

By 2050 it will not be my problem anymore. BUT it will be my children's. Do i think that civilisation will collapse? No, but i do think that by them the human race will have made some very hard choices. There are many choices which could be made, from mainly using renewable energy to Genocide, Have ...

Re: john cleese says london is no longer english

A lot of hate in this thread. Some Reality needed. No London was never an English city. (like one link stated). Maybe you could say a British one. As a capital, it has been the main port of call for most immigrants - for hundreds of years. Some of my own ancestors came in the 19th century. Some of m...

Re: EU in or out? Brexit: The Movie

Although at first sight it looks like great news for Brexiteers and the Brexit party, if you look a little closer not so. The liberals and greens (both very pro-remain) got very substantial gains in vote share, and actually polled more than the Brexit party when combined. The other Pro-remain party ...

Re: May gone - One down 3 to go

Since her snap election 2 years ago it has been all downhill. Albert Einstein got it .'Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results'.

Admittedly she had an impossible task - how to implement the referendum result without wrecking the economy.......

Re: Immigration Office

Just as a point of information, the Thai bank deposit guarantee is currently 10 million baht, and falls to 5 million baht in August 2019, It is then due to fall to one million in august 2020. This info was retrieved from 3 different internet locations, but this being Thailand, doesn't mean much........

Re: Brexit domino effect - EU28 Kantar poll

People voted on a load of disinformation (both sides) and lies (mainly leave campaign), And not a word was said about HOW we should leave. Now we know what deal is available, an INFORMED choice can be made. Time for another referendum, with specific options. Of course, Brexiteers do not want another...

Another place for work boots - MR DIY in Central. But almost certainly cheap. Not an expert just know they are there.

Try keeping the thermometer out of the sun .....

Officially over 42 centigrade today. My Maximum minimum thermometer usually never more than one degree out (sometimes minimum is a fair bit higher as under a roof so doesn't get so cold over night).

Re: ClimateGate busts things wide open

Cherry picking again. Yes, there are climatic cycles. But the last time we had co2 levels over 400 ppm was about 3 million years ago, and since then it has been much lower and we have been through dozens of glacial cycles. Fact - you can match rising co2 levels to emissions caused by humans. We are ...

Re: Revoke Article 50 petition

Simple. If MPs are truly thwarting the will of the people, there are 2 simple answers, a general election or a referendum on SPECIFIC options which is not advisory. At least this time people would actually know what is on offer. Strangely, Brexiteers are dead against these options. Maybe they do not...
