Re: Brexit consequences

According to Huffpost, Thornbury has "clarified" Labour's position on The Customs Union. Thornberry said the only thing that would avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland was joining a customs union. She added: “Is there any way which we can have frictionless trade with Europe without tariffs, witho...

Re: Brexit consequences

Hot news this evening from The Independent. A key member of the European Parliament’s Brexit team has described the manner in which the UK is conducting the Brexit negotiations as “a shambles” and warned that Michel Barnier is privately expressing his concerns, The Independent can reveal.

Re: That little counter thingy..

That counter continues to surprise me. Yesterday, "Unique Visits" were on 38. Today, so far, 223. Perhaps activity = "Activity". :con

Re: Late night music.

Wonderful melody and orchestration, accompanied by some stunning images. Best viewed full screen. Far from HD or even hi-fi, but I found it uplifting in these, for me at least, depressing times. (can be a bit slow to load.)

(To switch to full screen, click the Full screen icon in the bottom corner of the video player.

To exit out of full screen, press Esc on your keyboard or click the Full screen icon again.)

You mean they held a vote which reversed the result of a previous vote?
Yes, and I expect one or two of them will spot the irony. Eventually. :lol

From 3rd April 2018, The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) will no lon...

Re: Brexit consequences

George Soros tells why his love for Britain means he'll fight on to oppose Brexit, from something of a surprising source. I consider Brexit a tragic mistake. Prior to Brexit, Britain enjoyed the best of all possible worlds: it was a member of the European Union without adopting the euro. Allowing a ...

"Modus"

Just watched the first episode of this Swedish crime drama, featuring the visit to Sweden of the first female US President. (Wondering if it was made a couple of years ago when Clinton was expected to win?) Not terribly gripped after one episode, but must give it a bit of time, I suppose. Well, in t...

Re: Garden photos competition

Sorry, only just got round to viewing the link. Amazingly beautiful images. And how fortunate for the photographers to have been there and then. The dried flowers pic so impressive even on my phone...impressionistic, even.
