Re: Corbyn and Homeopathy

Re: Brexit consequences

... All in all, the country seems to trapped in a strange, self-destructive psychological state: "yes, we can see it's going to be bad, but we said we'd do it so we mustn't change our minds". Yes - that's what I'm hearing - the turkeys have voted for Christmas so let's all head for the abattoir. Bu...

Re: Brexit consequences

Well, as I'm here......as far as I know, May has failed to identify a single tangible benefit of the UK leaving the EU. The referendum, as voted for by Parliament, was not legally binding, and was advisory. Best thing to do is abandon the whole abysmally bad idea, and work on improving the UK's rel...

Re: Brexit consequences

When you are back from your holiday (which I hope you enjoy) would you tell us what this solution is?

Coz I have no idea how we extract ourselves from this mess. :con

Would it be unreasonable to feel a tad sceptical about this explanation? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-43738022 Investigators discovered 540kg (1,191lb) of marijuana missing from a police warehouse in Pilar, north-west of Buenos Aires.

Re: Respect

That made me look the word up... 1. admire (someone or something) deeply, as a result of their abilities, qualities, or achievements. "she was respected by everyone she worked with" 2. have due regard for (someone's feelings, wishes, or rights). "I respected his views" Your lines address the first o...

Re: Mystery over village in Devon rising 2cm every year

What amazes me is that there is satellite technology that can measure such a minimal change.

It's magick.

Re: visits to site

I've noticed that our esteemed leader's posts get far more views much more quickly that we serfs.

Don't know why that should be (apart from their obvious brilliance - obviously)

Re: Bathroom Scales

Hmmm. I suspect most scales have a mechanical element whether or not the display is electronic. I suspect you might be right - it's to do with the set of the weighing mechanism becoming distorted through gravity. If it's going to damage the thing irreparably that's one thing but If it's just a small...

Bathroom Scales

Got a new set.

We usually keep them in a convenient space between the loo and the bath leaning up against the bath.

However OH has noticed that the instructions say they must be stored flat which is a bit of a pain - it doesn't say why and I can't find out why they say that

Any ideas? :con

Re: The gender wage cap

The gender wage cap

Big in the news as last night was the deadline for large companies to report upon their average wages per gender. Am I the only one who is entirely unconvinced that there is anything necessarily sinister about this gap? There are potentially many reasons for this difference from the obviously wrong....
