A credit card of microplastics - I guess that just contributes to roughage.
Just as long as it doesn't come out whole and edge-on. :shock:

Re: On the PM.

He's campaigning to the party. The nation doesn't get a say on who leads us out of the undemocratic EU, just the party.... True, but I very much noticed what Chaggle did. It was all about saving the Tories not the country. Hopefully floating voters will be noticing the same thing. Looks like it's n...

Microplastics

Just heard on SKY news that humans 'consume the equivalent of a credit card of microplastics every week'. Cant say it bothers me much. I also remember hearing recently that some kind of shellfish was discovered to contain small amounts of cocaine. And that some bottled water from eastern Europe cont...

Re: On the PM.

My feelings are that whatever you think of their political stance, these are a pretty intelligent and talented bunch (possibly Boris excepted) that under normal circumstances could be seen as suitable to lead a major political party. But the circumstances of the moment are far from normal - Brexit t...

Re: Most atheists believe in the supernatural

Even Dawkins admits he's a cultural Christian. Probably a C of E one I would think.

Rees-Mogg on GMB saying exactly the same thing - 'If we don't leave on 31st October there won't be a Conservative party left to lead'.

Re: Most atheists believe in the supernatural

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Templeton_Foundation First I've heard of them - I can see why they could be controversial. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Templeton_Foundation#Religious_funding Horgan stated "misgivings about the foundation's agenda of reconciling religion and science". He sa...

Re: On the PM.

Anyway she's gone and the race to the leadership has begun. I watched Hunt launch his bid this morning and I was struck that on two or three occasions he said 'we must do - blah blah blah or our party is finished' or 'we mustn't - X Y Z or our party will be destroyed in the next election'. More worr...

Travellers

What's it all about? Here in Weston-super-Mare we get many (dozens of) visits per year and camps are set up in parks, school playing fields, the Beach Lawns and many other parcels of land both public and private. If you or I did what they did (parking on playing fields having broken the locks for in...

Re: All Change at "Change UK".

Sorry - just realised that that is nothing to do with ChangeUK - Tony's fault.

ChangeUK should have realised more than anyone that the only game in town right now is Brexit and called themselves The Remain Party.

Re: All Change at "Change UK".

Well, that was quick. I can't say I'm surprised, given the unexpected revival of the Lib Dems and the rather incoherent way the new party portrayed itself. Never mind, plenty of other interesting developments to marvel/despair at (delete to choice). Next up, the new Tory leader and implications for...
