Tactical voting on Thursday.

This site... https://www.remainvoter.com/ ...claims that using tech they can advise voters in each constituency how to vote in order to maximise the number of remainer MEPs returned. This is not easy apparently due to the complex nature of the d'Hondt system. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_irel...

Re: "Why You Can't Win An Argument With an Idiot".

I have doubts about my mental abilities - does that make me intelligent?

By the way I don't think George Carlin is strictly correct about half the people being of below average intelligence.

Monsanto compensation

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/may/13/monsanto-cancer-trial-bayer-roundup-couple Seems odd that the US authorities have given Glyphosate and Roundup a clean bill of health but a jury can decide that it's that which caused the cancer. I think that a court in Italy the same with vaccines a...

Re: Alexa

Moved Alexa to a permanent position today and she refused to work for a bit. After pushing a few buttons the right lights came on. Alexa - are you OK now? No, I'm tense. It's the last episode of Line of Duty tonight and I know who H is. Alexa, who is H? I know who H is but I'm too scared to tell you...

Re: Tory-run Northamptonshire has no local elections today.

The only way it would be off the agenda is hard Brexit. Anything else would have Farage and his ilk protesting that we haven't left properly - the will of the people has been thwarted.

Re: Tory-run Northamptonshire has no local elections today.

It's bloody stupid is what it is. I have no idea if they are immensely thick or lying. Or just possibly it's that they want Brexit, but they know the electorate has changed to remain, and they need to 'get on with it' in their own interests while they can against the 'will of the people', before the...

Re: The Huawei leak

No it wouldn't get his job back - he probably wouldn't want it anyway.

But it would allow him the satisfaction of 'sticking one up May :???: ' so to speak.

Apparently 42 ministers have left this government since the 2017 election. :shock:

Re: The Huawei leak

Interesting - don't know but your analysis sounds reasonable.

I was thinking anyway that given his total denial of any wrongdoing 'on his children's lives' or some such, that he should demand a police investigation.

Your post reinforces that - he would likely be exonerated.

Yes please keep going Tony.

3/13 - mostly just pin-sticking - didn't have a clue.

Nice posters.

Here's one I might have recognised.

Re: The Brexit Party

Interesting. There are any number of Brits living in Spain who are ardent supporters of Brexit. No - they haven't thought it through but only in the same way as hardly any Brexit supporters have. It is unlikely that their lifestyle will change much TBH provided they are fully registered as resident ...

Re: Green technology in diesel cars ‘making allergies WORSE’

I don't really see how a filter can increase the amount of something...
They work by netting small particles in exhaust fumes but also increase the amount of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) released into the air.
Must be a bit more complicated than they are saying.
