Re: I smell a very large rat!

Supposing that it is all bull and the device is a useless scam - and let's face it it certainly smells that way, are we to believe that the 'inventors' actually think it works or that they know exactly what they are doing - i.e. scamming? Either option is difficult to believe. Similarly, if non-expe...

Re: Labour leadership

he has said he'd go back a decade further, to the 1970s Wilson/Callaghan Labour government.
Yes - that should do it - prepare the ground for another MT to come along and guarantee 10 years of Tory rule.

Re: Margarine is one molecule...

There are no popular brands of margarine on sale in the UK. You might not believe it but go look in your local Sainsbury's or Tesco. There is nothing on sale with the word "margarine" on the tub or packet. Yes, I've noticed that. Here in Spain they are less reticent about it - it's all called 'marg...

Re: Gun culture

I've given up on my FB discussion. It was just getting absurd. I've never come across such obvious selection of 'facts' to fit point of view. The extent of the self delusion involved is astonishing. I see an eleven year old boy has just grabbed his fathers shotgun and shot dead his playmate because ...

Re: Gun culture

I hadn't got as far as exploring any links and references. You are right. I see that it is basically utter crap. Amongst other things; most of the points it addresses are irrelevant. They are answers to questions so off the point that no-one would ever bother asking them. I guess that makes them str...

Gun culture

I'm having quite an entertaining discussion on FB with an American republican (distant relative as it happens) who has posted this as 'all the relevant facts about guns and violence'.
