Re: Useless gold coins

As legal tender it has a face value of 25p https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovereign_(British_coin) Thought I'd check. 2 Grams of 22K Gold is currently worth £22.43. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarter_sovereign. Numismatists may ascribe a greater value https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2008-Queen-Elizabet...

Re: Brexit consequences

A quite clever person looking at what May is doing might infer this motive. On the other hand, doing so could be described as Apophenia. Not giving up and plugging away a futile causes is kind of her schtick. I wouldn't reach for a more complex explanation than that.

Re: Brexit consequences

We have clearly and decisively dismissed every possible way forward. A such we're now pressed into looking for a way backwards and asking for an extension. It seems that taking back control looks like demanding that the EU tell us exactly what sort of extension we will be allowed to have and to what...

Re: Brexit consequences

So I would fully expect the final two options to be "declare war", and "bring back Only Fools and Horses"

Re: "Why We Think Cats Are Psychopaths."

Yes I think it's more their actions than their expressions. The classic trope canine loyalty is of a faithful hound who on the death of his master pines away at their grave side. In the classic cat lady equivalent she's discovered three days later and the cat's have eaten her face.

Re: Brexit consequences

Yes it's a game of chicken. Theresa is at the wheel of a magnificent Rolls Royce, sheer rock to the left, a cliff edge to the right. Voices from the back scream at her. Some ask her to simply stop, other insist the the the Rolls Royce is the best car in the world and the EU are bound to swerve. Othe...

Re: Brexit consequences

Were you in Wetherspoons again? :D I haven't been in a Spoons for some time. Unfortunately I was at work. One colleague is an idiot (the one I was arguing with), another is an all-out UKIPper. Fortunately there are a whole bunch more who are OK. That's far more worrying. One assumes that strategies...

Re: Brexit consequences

I had an argument last week with someone who thinks that "no deal" will give us tariff free trade with the whole world. And is thus a very good thing. I suspect this sort of confusion is widespread. The media, including the BBC, are not helping to clarify these distortions of reality and generally ...
