Re: Brexit consequences

I see James Dyson has nailed his colours to the mast and bailed out.

As if selling massively overpriced toys, dodgy advertising claims and sponsoring Bath Rugby wasn't bad enough...

Re: PEMF

...and of course even if the principle of PEMF works as demonstrated by some trials - it doesn't mean that their device does anything for the conditions they quote.

Re: PEMF

I think I will ask a few more questions. They are probably right that they don't need 'clinical trials' but, at least in the UK, they should have 'robust evidence' of any claims they make.

These things are eminently suited to blinded trials - makes you wonder why they don't do them huh?

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I've been reminded that the EU would not allow indefinite revocation and re-submission of A50 which would allow the UK to extend the leaving process indefinitely.

A new mandate (from the electorate?) would be needed before we could resubmit.

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I think a no deal, hard Brexit, crash out (do they all mean the same thing?) is unlikely.

Already 'deals' are being done - WRT UK expats living abroad, keeping planes flying and so on.

No deal is likely to mean thousands of micro-deals with no overall structure.

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I'm pretty sure I heard some time ago (like a couple of years) that it would not be possible for the UK to withdraw A50 and then re-present at some time in the future. I can't remember if it was legally or politically not possible.

I gather that one German source was quoted as using a traditional proverb to justify accepting Nodexit:

"Better a horrible end than horror without end”.
Happy little proverb eh? :???:

I'm thinking that Nodexit might be our destiny.

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I've given up trying to work it out.

I have no idea what's going to happen nor what should happen.

It's an unholy mess - as predicted.

Re: Countdown

What about 'meagrest' as in 'he won by the meagrest of margins'.

It's in a couple of on-line dictionaries but by no means all.

The more I learn about this issue, the more convinced I am becoming that every single option is completely unacceptable. I'm not sure where that leaves me... :con That is what I think.

Re: A second referendum - or a general election?

Said on Marr this morning - that of the three options that might appear on some sort of 2ref: Leave with no deal, leave on May's deal or don't leave - the latter of those would probably win but with less than 40% of the vote. Whereas in the 2016 referendum, leave won by 52%. This of course would be ...
