“We need a mass cleansing..."

Not great, obviously. Just very disturbing. At school, we didn't spend that much time on the 1930s, but this sounds scarily reminiscent. Footage has re-emerged of Italy’s new interior minister calling for a “mass cleansing” of migrants from “entire parts” of the country. Matteo Salvini’s comments ar...

Re: Brexit consequences

Brexit? Always worth doing a bit of stirring. :thumb
The great irony of Brexit, then, is that it is teaching the UK that it already had the best model: EU membership.

Re: Your own photos - new thread.

I would never claim to be a connoisseur of graffiti, but those examples from Croydon, Bristol and Estepona contain some impressive examples. I did a similar search on Ghent, but the results do not do much for me, I have to say. But then it's the sort of thing that changes quickly, I expect. https://...

Halotherapy - the latest Spa trend.

No, nothing to do with being angelic! It is basically sitting in a salt room. Wellness spas are thriving today, even in our era of modern medicine, often with the same old claims of balance and purity. Spas are a triumph of marketing, selling an eclectic mix of holistic nonsense to the worried well ...

Re: Boris Johnson.

Well, looks like I've been rather optimistic. The issue will be going public "within the next 3 months". But I've been told, "It's going to be very loud." Not sure exactly what to make of that, but we'll just have to wait and see. :???:

Re: Brexiteer humour - there's a lot of it around.

Brexiteers insist economy is ‘fine’ as shop selling everything for £1 goes under. ’All of the recent High Street casualties have absolutely nothing to do with a weak pound, falling levels of consumer confidence and the United Kingdom becoming the laughing stock of the planet.’ http://southendnewsne...

"Trump Is Making Decline Great Again."

The G7 in Canada this weekend featured a number of firsts in international affairs — the first time a US president repudiated a document he had signed; the first time an entire alliance had turned on Washington in public; the first time an American president got his economics exactly backward in pu...

Re: Your own photos - new thread.

Just back from a short trip to Ghent. Since my first visit in 2008, "Graffiti Alley" has become quite famous. Or is it infamous?
Just one pic here, and I have to say it doesn't appeal to me at all.

Brexiteer humour - there's a lot of it around.

A contribution from Michael Gove. Brexit ‘ideal opportunity’ to fight obesity, says Gove. "Michael Gove has responded enthusiastically to the suggestion that Britain will run out of food shortly after Brexit. ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to address one of the greatest health crises of our time,’...

General Practice in the UK.

An article written by retired GP Dr Kailash Chand and published today in "Pulse" magazine. I would argue that there is overwhelming evidence of a conspiracy to see off general practice for good, enacted by politicians from both major political parties over the past two decades. The agenda of privati...

Re: Brexit consequences

David Allen Green ‏ 3m3 minutes ago "Every step of Brexit, from the attempt to have A50 notified by prerogative, to the falsehoods about sectoral reports, and to the delays of votes and shortened debates, has been - in effect - in contempt of parliament." He's not actually anti-Brexit. But he does s...
