Re: Grease - Central Station Antwerp.

Perhaps not quite the same but I would say that community choirs are having a renaissance at the moment- possibly due to the prominence of Gareth Malone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gareth_Malone Certainly I have friends and family who sing in choirs in their towns - and they're not really singers...

Re: Brexit consequences

There's an odd dichotomy in Brexiter thinking. On the one hand they want a clean break - no deal, but on the other they push the scenario (that is false anyway) that as the EU export more to the UK than the UK does to them - 'they need us more than we need them' - surely to emphasise the fact that '...

Re: Brexit consequences

It's mentioned in The Express this morning. Hard Brexit preparations will step up from next month, with the release of 70 advisory technical notices to businesses and individuals. The admission of the Government’s no-deal plans is likely to be music to the ears of some hard-line Brexiteers. Until no...

I can't find any other source for that - but - it's prepping time I guess. :shock:

Re: ‘The Holes in the Official Skripal Story’,

BTW - the linked article reads very much like one of the ubiquitous CT takedowns of the 911 'official record' ie no substance just sniping which is the easy bit. As I said I look forward to his 'more plausible explanations' ( ct'ers rarely do that as it allows us sensible people to do what they do -...

Re: ‘The Holes in the Official Skripal Story’,

Who knows? It may or may not become clear.

I agree that your explanation is a plausible.

One point - Craig Murray has a 'mixed past' - he was dismissed from the FCO under a bit of a cloud - could be dodgy.

I await his next post with interest...

Re: Brexit consequences

I would hope that May will appoint a successor to Davis today, and maintain the timetable. His position was little more than symbolic anyway - I mean, he didn't seem to do much. I get the impression that he didn't do much so in the end she simply had to say what was going to happen. . Either that o...

Re: Brexit consequences

What next indeed?

We have no idea where this is going and no idea what to do about it.

Re: On Johnson.

Apparently he called the outcome from the Chequers discussion (actually May telling them the way it's going to be) 'polishing a turd'.

Remarkable honesty from him - calling Brexit a turd. I agree with him.

Re: Isn't the news bad enough?

Even more devastating food news. "CO2 shortage halts crumpet production." You may have trouble finding crumpets in supermarkets as Warburton's suffers the effects of a carbon dioxide shortage. One of the UK's biggest bread makers says it has ended production at two out of four of its plants because...

Wish I still read books - I was give Sagan's Demon-Haunted World for Christmas - got abut 10 pages in and then gave up for no good reason. My attention span is shortening with age - I don't watch films either.
